With a remote team located all over the world, getting face time can be few and far between. But when it does happen, it’s MAGIC. We are freshly off a whirlwind team retreat and Haven Workshop in Newport Beach and we are feeling so incredibly inspired not only by the collaborative environment but by all the fab fall things tucked in our suitcases. As we kick off this season of cozy, we are leaning into rich, autumnal color palettes (even our latest IDCO template is feeling the moody vibes) and cozy layers for both the home and our wardrobes. From the prettiest suede mules to the magic hair oil that will save you this winter, and a must-stream-immediately list, have a look at our favorites for the month of October.
Glazed Earthenware Mug – Do you have a favorite mug? Sammmmmeee. This one has that handcrafted look that we so love and is definitely a contender for a new favorite. Also in the running: Matte Stoneware Mug in Denim, Speckled Mug in Midnight
Organic Matcha Green Tea – Duplicate a Starbucks Matcha Green Tea Lemonade at home with 3 scoops powder, 1 full lemon squeezed in, 1 Stevia. It’s DELISH. Matcha makes me feel less jittery than coffee does and I love the pick me up it brings.
Oversized Cotton Throw – Because you can never have too many throws, especially during the colder seasons. This textural cotton throw is the perfect neutral accessory for draping over the end of the bed. We’re equally obsessed with this tasseled coverlet.
Suede Mule – Anastasia picked these suede mules up when we were in Newport Beach last week and let me just say, they are even more beautiful in person, not to mention crazy comfortable.
Large Suede Saddle Bag – If you are into the suede mules, you are going to LOVE this Jenni Kayne saddle bag. The rope detail is gorgeous and the color is the most perfect caramel hue.
Pointy Toe Mule Flats – Is it possible to have too many mules? Neverrrrr. These old navy pointy toe flats are the best dupe to higher-end styles. We’re picking them up in every color.
Aurora Boho Dress – Featured in our opening shot, this Free People dress gets asked about everywhere it goes. I counted seven questions about it while at dinner at McGee + Co. last week. It’s also available in the loveliest burnt orange for fall.
Cashmere Sweatshirt – That combo is a good one. We’re talking elevated loungewear with the comfort of a sweatshirt and the fanciness of cashmere. Anastasia wore this all over Newport Beach and loves how polished it looks alone with jeans or layered over a button-down.
Hair Accessories – With a freshly cropped lob, Anastasia is very into hair accessories and has been loading up on killer headbands and clips. Here are a few faves: Carter Knotted Headband, Watercolor Hair Clip Set, Tribe Alive Hair Clip
4D Silk Fiberlash Mascara – I know we say this every month but SERIOUSLY, this is the best mascara we’ve ever used.
Oribe Split End Seal – Colder weather means the heater is on which also means hair is dryer than dry. A few drops of Oribe is like a heaven for dry or processed hair. It’s worth every single penny.
The Politician – New on Netflix, this politics meets high school meets an amazing cast all created by genius Ryan Murphy is on the must binge immediately list. We are officially obsessed. It fills all your Benji from Pitch Perfect withdrawals.
Unbelievable – The second we started watching Unbelievable, we were hooked. Based on a true story, this Netflix show is filled with strong female leads and an incredible, gut-wrenching story. Amazing acting aside, we are all for supporting shows with women portrayed as smart, strong and unapologetic. Bravo to that.
Travel Home – We can’t even begin to describe how truly beautiful this book is. Each page is filled with stunning interiors inspired by travel + wanderlust – basically, all of our favorite things wrapped up into one beautiful package. We had the pleasure of meeting Caitlyn Flemming and her mom and co-author Julie Goebel in person at their Newport Beach book signing and they are just as amazing, lovely, and talented as you would imagine. We are obsessed with this book and proceeded to buy a copy for everyone we know.
