Life in Contrast . . . .


October is swiftly coming to a close. Unfortunately, the weather here hasn’t quite reconciled itself to the fact that we are in our second month of Fall. I am yearning for cooler weather, boots + sweaters, and nights by the fireplace!

What’s your favorite time of year? Are you a summer lover, or does Spring make you sing? Do you love Fall or is Winter your thing?


Mood Board Monday | Hues of Neutrality . . .

MoodBoardMonday_thelookbookphilosophy.com Bright

I am loving these hues of neutrality. I will never tire of the color combo of black, beige, tan, creme and hunter green. Considering that it was 102 degrees today, it may or may not seem strange that my mind is on winter. Desperately wanting it to come my way, all I can do for now is dream it and will it to make an appearance sooner than later. Today’s mood board and color palette gives me that cool dawn-of-autumn feeling. I love how these colors play so nicely together and balance each other out. They remain both elegant and unassuming. This is what I would be wearing if it wasn’t 102. Dream on . . .

Old Man Winter . . . Where are You???


I want Autumn to be here so bad it hurts. Regardless of the fact that it is 95+ degrees outside,

I desire to be COZY.

I am voraciously craving all things warm, homey and wintry . . . slouchy sweaters, furry blankets, boots, fireplace logs & the smell of firewood, hot tea and cinnamon, fuzzy pillows, chunky scarves and candlelight. Autumn/Winter is my favorite time of year and I am awaiting that first cool wintry day with all the depths of my soul. . .

What’s your favorite time of year?

Btw, Happy Friday. Have a spectacular weekend! ☺
