Happy Halloween! Today’s Monday Mood is a roundup of some amazing articles and essays I read this month, as well as a few fun DIY projects that I’m going to try soon. I also wanted to gather some street style imagery highlighting my current go-to hues—fiery orange and marigold. Blue has always been my favorite color, but lately I can’t stop obsessing over shoes, sweaters, and coats that feature these poppy autumnal shades. They’re perfect for transitioning seasons, and since summer is finally (but slowly, seeing as I live in San Francisco) fading into fall, I’m excited to rock a warmer color palette for the cooler months.

Well hello, June. I can’t believe how quickly the time goes. You’ve probably noticed that things are happening here on Mode and the Like. I’ve revamped my layout and renewed my commitment to blog here. I want to once again use this space to explore my many interests, from style and beauty products to literature and the art world. Thank you to anyone who’s stuck around to see this blog suffer its dry spells. I’ve got some fresh ideas for future content and am excited to continue my story here. (On another note, even though it’s more of a fall hue, I’m really craving emerald everything, especially when it’s the accent for an otherwise black and white outfit.)

Here’s to starting again, and keeping it classy in the process.
