Artist Lily Stockman is lovely in every possible way, and now she’s partnered with her business-minded sister Hopie to create Block Shop. The story behind how this Indian textile company came together is truly inspiring and the scarves are nothing less than stunning. Each one is stamped individually with vegetable-based dyes onto Indian silk-cotton blend fabric. It’s virtually impossible to choose a favorite, but if pressed I’d go with the coral arrows. Well done, ladies!
(Sorry, but there was no way I couldn’t use that cheezy blurb once I got it stuck in my head!)

Scarves are one of those things I always think I want to wear more of, until I get ahold of one and have nothing to wear it with. Forget Me Not‘s onto something with their pieces, make a scarf look like a work of art and the outfit gets build around it.
Hi, Design Crush readers! I’m Jessie from Style & Pepper and I’m happy to be the mouse that’s come to play while my kitten Kelly is away. Thanks for indulging me while I share a little bit of fall fashion with you in her absence. I wanted to keep design at the forefront of my guest post, so I picked a recent pin of mine that has made me feel particularly inspired, and sort of went with my gut from there. Enjoy, and feel free to pop over to visit me anytime!
Starry skies have been twinkling their way onto the style scene recently, and as a nature lover who also happens to be a full-blown addict of all things glittery, I think that it’s a complete match made in heaven. First I fell in love with the astronomical art, and then the dreamy dress followed closely behind… Naturally, my next move (being the good little style blogger that I am) was so see what shoppable goodies I could find that would go along with the aesthetic, and I was happy to discover that the results are out-of-this-world.

Oh hey, Autumn. Did you know you’re my favorite? Your moderately warm days and chilly nights are the perfect combination. And your colors? Don’t even get me started. You make me miss the northeast like mad and count your numbered days from the start. You also make me a layering fool who’s obsessed with creating her own autumnal palette, this year I’m seeing a brilliant mix of brights and neutrals all playing together like a bunch of falling leaves.

Who says pocket squares are just for men in blazers? Exactly. The graphic pochettes from P.Johnson Tailors would look so, so good peeking out of a summery white jacket pocket. Maybe grab a few and share with your other half, instantly expanding your accessory options!
