Monthly Mood: What We're Loving This November

 

Anyone else feeling festive already? I usually don’t join in ‘til a little later in the year, but all the designing and market prep I’ve been doing has me in the mood for all things holiday! I officially can’t wait for all the new holiday movies headed our way via Netflix and Hallmark, but for the time being, I’m rewatching some of my old favorites and enjoying fall while it’s still around. Read on to see what I’m loving for November — and remember, you can join the mailing list for more illustrated goodies straight to your inbox!

CURRENTLY CRUSHING ON —

All these delicious, food-inspired colors! This palette makes me so happy — it’s both earthy and festive, and inspired by some of my favorite Thanksgiving flavors — especially my favorite cranberry scones!

CURRENTLY CRAVING —

All the Thanksgiving food! The color palette above might have tipped you off already, but Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, and it also happens to include some of my all time favorite foods — roasted turkey with gravy, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie (oh my!). Who’s with me?

CURRENTLY SHOPPING FOR —

Cozy pajamas — I can never say no to comfy pajamas, and I especially love a matching set! This lounge set is pretty much a dream Christmas morning outfit for this neutrals-obsessed gal :)

 

CURRENTLY READING —

The fall issue of Magnolia Journal, because, let’s be honest — I’m obsessed with everything Joanna Gaines does. I definitely read every issue of the Magnolia Journal multiple times throughout each season, and I’ve been revisiting fall 2018 recently as I wait for the next issue!

CURRENTLY PLANNING —

Holiday markets! We’ll be at a couple big holiday markets around Denver this month (the Junior League Holiday Mart and the Botanic Gardens Winter Market), and I couldn’t be more excited! Looking forward to the festive shopping and spending time around other local makers!

Monthly Mood: What We're Loving This October

 

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get enough of yummy baked goods this time of year — ‘tis the season for pumpkin everything! Besides eating all the pumpkin scones in sight, I’ve got big plans this month to take advantage of my favorites season, like visiting a pumpkin patch, adding some fall accents to our home decor, and adding a few cool-weather staples into my wardrobe. Read on to see what I’m loving for October — and be sure to sign up for the mailing list for more illustrated goodies!

CURRENTLY CRUSHING ON —

More warm and cozy hues! I think our October colors celebrate fall even more than last month’s — I especially love how much they remind of the colors we’re seeing with the leaves starting to change. Throw in a cloudy, stormy blue for some drama, and you’ve got a perfect fall palette!

CURRENTLY CRAVING —

All the pie! I’m not a big dessert person in general (aside from my undying love for donuts), but I do love a good slice of apple pie this time year. I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect recipe, so if you’ve got a good one, please feel free to send it my way!

CURRENTLY SHOPPING FOR —

The perfect pair of ankle boots. I’m a creature of habit and pretty much live in my ankle boots year-round, which means I usually need to invest in a new pair by the time fall rolls around. I’m loving this pair from Target — the chunky heel and laser cut details are so cute!

 

CURRENTLY READING —

Have you read WorkParty yet? I’m officially obsessed with this book, which is by the founder of Create & Cultivate, Jaclyn Johnson. It’s filled with inspiration from successful boss ladies, practical advice for building a business, and empowering messages for women in the workplace.

CURRENTLY PLANNING —

Our trip to San Diego! We’ll be there next weekend, so I’m officially in full research mode. Old Town San Diego, Balboa Park, and the San Diego Museum of Man are already on the list, but I’m still working on my list of the yummiest tacos, cutest coffee shops, and best local shops. We’ll be trying to fit some beach time in as well, of course!
