{Fall Obsession} Terrain Harvest Items

Gingham plates, ready for beouf bourguignon.  (The pumpkin has a blasé attitude, I think.) A plaid motor robe, perfect for an impromptu   picnic atop the crispy fall leaves.   A wax canvas tote, for his or her weekend away items (maybe to Vermont?) As much as I adore my usual format for Maisonette, my current Autumn obsessions have caused me to branch out a bit. I find it impossible to refrain from sharing with you all of my fall finds. My favorite part of Terrain's fall aesthetic, is its masculine qualities and feminine romantic tendencies. Don't worry, I haven't abandoned my overly glamorous style, I've simply always been in love with masculine details. Leather, large gold zippers, brass buttons. These pieces are all simultaneously chic and utilitarian.

{Overtly Autumn styling}

I am undoubtedly excited that fall fashion has been including some unexpected colors this season, however I have to admit that I will always crave the more overtly "autumn" styling as well. I can't help but love the rust colored pumps & moody polka dotted black on black pencil skirt paired with a slate blousy top.  I like the cheeky qualities of the tightly fitted Nordic sweater and the pumpkin and gingham combination. They are unabashedly fall: one being a cliche of prep autumn & winter wear, the other the typical color scheme of Halloween. Also important, is the billowy back to school look...a mustard "grandpa" cardigan accompanied by powder blue pleats. These garments are all classics for a  reason. They recall certain memories, that I think for most are pleasant:
{new school supplies, a plastic orange pumpkin, stormy nights, & harvest festivals) They are nostalgic in a way that isn't too kitsch and is therefore sublimely chic.
