inspiration : october moods {2012}

Hi y'all! Happy October! September is wonderful!! It's a fantastic break from the blazin' heat of summer in Texas, but it's still hot. And while football starts, and nights get cooler, and the days get shorter, it's still not quite fall yet. More of a psuedo-fall. But then October comes around and it's really fall. In all it's glory! So yay, we made it to another fall!

Also, I've decided to expand the monthly mood board posts. I'll share my mood board, as well as monthly desktop calendars you can find across the webs, music I'm listening to, and blogs/books/articles I'm reading, tv shows/movies I'm watching. It'll be a full-blown post of all things that I'm loving! Enjoy!

My October 2012 mood board. Full of white pumpkins (love them), arrows, cobalt, plum and mustard.

Every time I think I decide which desktop background I want, I change my mind again. They're all so beautiful and inspiring!! I think I'll have to have a new one each week. ;) 

What I'm watching : 

Hope Springs

One of the more authentic movies on marriage. (See also The Story of Us.)

(All of the first 3 seasons are available on Netflix, and the new season doesn't start until next Thursday. Soooo.... if you've always wanted to check it out, now is the time. Set your DVR to record the new season while you're catching up on the passed seasons. 

And THAT folks, is my Regina Lately. ;) 

What about you? What are you listening to? Watching? Reading? Getting inspired by?

  1. I know aren't white pumpkins terrific?! You already know I'm a fan of those blue skinnies and nail polish. Right now I'm loving Of Monster and Men and their song Little Talks. Reading.....I wish!

  2. Yay! I love fall too! Yesterday was even beautiful in Texas... finally!

  3. I keep meaning to get One Thousand Gifts. I do read her blog.

    Oh my Gosh! Those shoes! How does one walk in them? LOL!


  4. I love your fashion choices! The mustard shoes and the skinny jeans would look so nice together!
