Fall Lovelies

I found these fall lovelies at Williams-Sonoma.
They're hanging above our sink now and making things feel just right and seasonal.
I especially like the mustard-yellow and gray one, as all things yellow with gray right now are my fave.

This week in the mail, I got this fall-toned headband from my dear friend Ilene's etsy shop.
My friend Kirra wears hers especially adorably, as you can see.
You should get one too, don't you think?
This one is my favorite of the colors in Ilene's shop, but she has lots of other cute ones too.

I would love to get this nail polish color from Essie's fall collection.
Too bad stores sold out in like, August, they say.
The fact that they haven't re-stocked makes me nuts.
I guess I'll just have to wait for their winter collection, which comes out Nov. 1st!

I think Anthropologie might have designed this hat and gloves just for me.
I'm still waiting for them to call and let me know they'd like me to come pick up my complimentary set.
Pairing these with a long sleeve and jeans and walking around city streets, swept over with crunchy leaves? Yes, please.

With what remains of October and November, let's make a carrot cake.
Somehow, served with a hot cup of chai tea, it seems like fall to me.
I have been in love with the Emma collection for a long time,
and if I could have one piece, I think it would be the cake stand.
Anyone have a yummy carrot cake recipe??
Heavy on the cream cheese frosting, please!

If you found a $20 bill on the street, what would you do?
I'd find the nearest Yankee Candle store and get "Autumn Wreath,"
the smell of autumn leaves and cinnamon apples.

For a break from jeans, I'd welcome these gray cords.

To transport a neutral top into fall, I'd add one of these scarves.
Love these!

Fall loves. Love fall.
(Don't forget to let me in on your favorite carrot cake recipe!)

Leigh, hi!! Thanks for saying hi and fun to know we have some of the same loves. :) Wow, what a girl.. if you really don't want the Essie mini anymore you could send it my way, otherwise I could always get it online if I decide it's that essential. :) Can't wait to see what they come out with this week!!!
