september desktop calendar by going home to roost

another month has come and gone, which means it’s time for another desktop calendar! i have so much fun making these each month, and i hope you enjoy them as well. :) to me, september always means that summer is beginning to wind down and that autumn is just around the corner. brisk(er) mornings and hazy evenings bring just enough chill for a light sweater. ahhh.

styleboard. my new friend

style board by going home to roost

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

after falling in love with this dear print scarf (found via), i decided to put together a little style board for it. my goal was to incorporate soft hues with a few pops of color, and add a nice mix of geometrics and woodland wonders. i see this gal attending an outdoor lunch with her friends and then hitting up the farmers market on her way home. i think we’d be friends.
