Autumn Moodboard & Wishlist



It's always interesting when you put together an inspiration folder or "think book" (or the modern equvialent of both: a Pinterest board), without a direct theme other than "things that inspire me right now" and see what themes accidentally emerge. I started saving these pictures at random to various corners of my computer and the web a few months ago, but when you put them all together they look so cohesive, as if I had planned for them to match. I was clearly ready for my autumn wardrobe long before autumn arrived, so it's no surprise my moodboard is filled with rich earth tones, cozy knits, and more than a few autumn leaves. Trendwise fall seems to be filled with velvet, embroidered denim, brocades, etc, but personally I'm leaning more towards classic fairisle sweaters, Ye-Ye singers inspired beauty, and berets in every color. I'm still feeling very inspired by the past, but a lot of my favorite images show a more casual take on vintage than the stylized pictures and outfits I've focused on in the past. It's a rustic take on vintage; classic farmers working at harvest-time in tweed caps and jackets, or a '70s free spirit traveling down dusty roads on her motorcycle in a floral dress. It's vintage with the sleeves rolled up and the boots on, ready to be worn at work in the wilds...

Hi
I just subscribed so I could post! I am late to the party as only just discovered you and have been following on FB but found on Pin FYI! Love your style BTW.

So need a plaid skirt and I have a jacket that will work but I SO NEED a fake fur stole...was 'hunting' one last season but never found the right one. I used to have a really similar cat ring when I was young! LOVE Autumn!

Thanks
Suzy

Love these vintage photos!

Would you say your complexion is cool or warm? I think our taste in colours can be affected by how it goes with our hair and complexion.
