Do you feel that?!! Cool, crisp mornings. Do you see that?!! Frost on the treetops. Do you hear that?!! The rustling of leaves on the sidewalk. Ahhhh, yes! October is here and with it arrives my favorite month to dress. Today, I wanted to share my October uniform, AKA plaid scarves & leather bags. Here are my new favorites and some tried and true pieces that I use year after year and are still available to shop. All of these scarf & bag pairings are from one of my favorites, Mark & Graham.
With holiday shopping around the corner, these monogrammed scarves make a great gift too. The bags are something to put on your wishlist for sure. They will be treasured for years to come. I love giving them as Christmas presents. I read a poll the other day that said that 70% of holiday shoppers will start shopping before Thanksgiving this year. I know I fall into that category for sure!
Windowpane Plaid & Suede Bamboo Handle Bag. I love this duo paired with a tweed jacket, neutral turtleneck, and ecru corduroys. Earthy neutral tones that work perfectly for fall.

Classic Fall Camel Tartan Scarf & Bamboo Handle Suede Bag. Another thing I love about these scarves is they can be worn as a blanket scarves. On days you don’t want a jacket, but want an extra layer. You can wear them with a belt if you want your waist defined. Paired with the same outfit from above I love it worn this way.

The Houndstooth Scarf & Striped Strap Crossbody Bag. I always call this my football game look—haha! This scarf has a hint of navy and I love it paired with my navy peacoat. I wear this or a combination of this tailgating and to football games a lot. Crossbody bags work perfect for sporting events when you don’t want to set your bag on the ground. Also, great for running errands around town.
