One of the best things about the changing seasons is the yearly arrival of seasonal fruits and vegetables. Fall is one of the most colorful and decorative times of year - we are just as likely to adorn our tables with harvest vegetables as we are to eat them. Pumpkins, squash, corn, zucchini, nuts, and acorns are just a few favorites.
Today I went on the hunt for some beautiful fall jewelry and fashions in the colors of gourds and squash. A warm, earthy palette of yellow, green and orange is perfect for any fall project - from the closet to the kitchen. Because many of our fall favorites have curvy shapes, it's easy to recreate them with the beads themselves, as well as just color. A dash of leaf stitch here and there makes it even better.
For this month's collage, I started with a pretty yellow and cream tagua necklace, which brings to mind sweet corn. From there, I worked with a palette of olive green, burnt orange, and mustard yellow.
It was easy enough to find pieces in rich fall colors, and plenty of leather helps to round out each outfit. One of the best things about the cool-but-not-cold months is the opportunity to sport tights in an endless array of fun colors. I topped things of with seed and nut inspired earrings for each ensemble, then headed out to look for handmade and vintage looks.
What’s your favorite fall comfort palette?
