Cold Days and New Ways

Posted on Oct 12, 2015

Accessories are the last thing you put on before you head out the door, so they say, the element of your outfit that supposedly makes or breaks an entire look. Yet it’s hard to find pieces that don’t feel like afterthoughts, but integral, balancing parts of any outfit. My favorite way to achieve this balance right now is referencing the low-key simplicity of ‘90s minimalism.

That’s why I’m super excited to have been introduced to Every Monday Jewelry, locally made jewelry that’s shiny and minimal with raw details. Every Monday incorporates fossils, bone, lava rocks, and glimmering minerals all gathered from the Southern Utah desert. I love how these elements look against rough or interesting fall pieces, and how they’re an example of jewelry that inspires a whole look.

October is the time to forget summer’s lightness and go for a whole new heavy layered look, with boxy, textured pieces that coalesce perfectly.

Choosing small, shiny accessories makes it easy to flash in the dark. October is the time to wander around in the cool night, to throw on some witch-like charms with a long velvet dress, which will always leaving you feeling interesting, and a sweeping knit to keep you warm out there.

It’s a time of nostalgia, too, where it’s easy to feel like an old self in a past autumn, and to find comfort in familiar things. Favorite, warm, and basic sweaters, a dependable, sturdy jacket.

My favorite time is fall because of these things. It’s a time to remember old things and feelings and find comfort in my favorite clothes, but also a time to pursue new feelings and directions. I’m trying to get out of my style’s comfort zone this fall, and there’s so many inspiring directions to go.

Come shop these looks before I do!
