November Mood Board

autumn mood board

As November quickly approaches it’s time to set the tone for one of my favorite months. November will be cooler and the days are getting shorter so i’m loving thick, wool sweaters, and coats. Hot tea and soothing warm cider give a feeling of warmth and getting cozy by the fire. The smells of fresh pies, caramel, brown sugar and cinnamon linger in the air. The colors are fresh apple reds and golden leaf hues. But the overall mood for this month is a sense of adventure! Big things are coming my way and I don’t just mean the Holidays! November holds so much excitement in store! I cannot wait. What is your mood board for November? Share in the comments. I may feature you on United States of Chic!
