Fall Style Trends - October

The color "Bright Pumpkin Orange" holds a special place in my heart – go Tennessee Vols! I proudly wore that Orange for 4 years straight while playing Volleyball at UT (Insert flashback of our team traveling in airports wearing bright orange adidas track suits from head to toe.) And this Fall I'll be waving that bright checkered flag every Saturday, it's our football team's best season yet since I went there (long ago) when we won the National Championship. All that said, I definitely prefer the warm, neutral & more subtle colors for October, paired with black & a bit of sparkle :) I came across the two pumpkin-painting DIY projects above on Pinterest, and they both happen to be from the uber-talented Amy of Homey Oh My. Can't wait to try my hand at these! At the Manhattan Hometown Fair this past weekend I fell in love with a few suede lariat choker necklaces at the Arts & Crafts booths, so I'm sharing a similar one here. Also I'm so excited about Slate & Stone's new women's collection, how cozy does that cream & black striped sweater above look! And if you're a tall girl like me, you'll appreciate these chic & comfy flats by Aldo that come in size 10 & 11 (I'm a not so perfect 10.5, an impossible size to find, and Aldo's size 10 actually fits me quite nicely). And finally, I came across a new brand "Blacktop" via Instagram who is in the midst of launching their Etsy shop filled with candles, bracelets & more to come. I have a total crush on their logo/branding, and especially their Instagram page! Hope you enjoy :)
