October hasn't ended yet, and somehow I already know my monthly favorites. It seems like this month has been full of everything I adore - travel, friends, the onset of cool weather (FINALLY!), and tons of little favorites and finds.
Since South Carolina has a particularly clear and sunny fall, I wear my sunglasses 24/7. I love these Warby Parker Reilly shades (that I tried out a few months ago!) because the tortoise pattern is so pronounced. I also found two new favorite scents from J. Crew's collaboration with Arquiste. The perfumes are named for 31st and 57th streets in New York City, though they couldn't be more different. 31 has a fresher scent with hints of rose, while 57 is deeper, reminiscent of whiskey and oakwood. I love 57 for the fall and winter, but I know 31 will be in heavy rotation come spring! After visiting Butcher & Bee and having the best kale slaw ever, I'm excited to dive into all salads and slaws kale. This week I'm testing out this recipe - I don't foresee anything going wrong! As I wrote here, I'm all over Christmas as soon as October rolls around, so I've already stocked up on several new Christmas ornaments, including these two from Pottery Barn's new city collection! These J Crew scalloped flats have been on my mind since they entered stores, and with this week's 25% off sale it will be very hard for me to say no. Not surprisingly, after seeing this Everygirl apartment tour my home decor focus this month has been on persian rugs. I can only dream of the day!
What other favorites have y'all found this month?
