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.

For the bibliophiles and English majors in your life, finding a gift can be hard. In September I posted part one of the Book Lover’s Gift Guide. However, since these people can be notoriously hard to shop for, I figured I’d save you the trouble of searching tirelessly for the perfect book and provide some more alternatives. Happy gifting!
