Emerald green has long been one of my favorite colors and I’m so happy to see it’s having a moment this autumn! I love how interiors and fashion often intersect like they are for this trend and can’t wait to take advantage and add a few pieces in this rich, deep hue to my home and closet.

I’m always looking for opportunities to share more of my favorite affordable finds with you, so today we’re debuting a new series called Quick Picks where I’ll do just that. Ten things that I’m crushing on from the last week or so that I don’t own but wouldn’t mind having in my home. No art, no designer anything, only things that are within reach.

If you recall, I’m acting as a Sole Sister for Sseko this entire year! As a Sseko Sole Sister I’ve been connected to one university-bound woman on Sseko’s team in Uganda to help her reach her educational goals – and with every purchase made through our shared link sales will go towards her university scholarship.
Sseko recently launched their fall/winter 2017 collection and I wanted to share it with you. There are so many great staples to get you sartorially through the next few months, quite a few I’m eyeing to give as gifts this holiday season. First off, Sseko has launched an apparel line! Highly curated, the first season includes shawls, dusters, kimonos, and scarves.
They’ve also expanded their beautiful bags into the realm of travel. Four styles of varying size have all the space you need to make it through an overnight or a long weekend, and if you’re a light packer (or the weather is warm) you may even be able to fit a week’s worth.
Of course there are also some seasonal additions to Sseko’s already impressive collection of leather bags. Mulberry is shaping up to be this fall’s hot color and they made sure to include it – I’ve been carrying around the bucket bag below during errands for a few weeks and have received so many compliments.

The Fall/Winter 2017 Collection is a celebration of strength and resiliency. We are women who know that a dream without a plan, without action is merely a wish. We fall and fail because we are done playing small. We do hard things because we see the gap between the way things could be. We stand in the gap, we face the darkness and know that when we emerge we will be stronger and more resilient versions of who we are created to be. We do not just survive, but thrive.

Harriet Damave’s hand-painted porcelain cat brooches caught my eye several months ago and they’re still on my mind. Her technique – painting cobalt oxide on unglazed bisque – is rather unusual, she likens it to watercolor paintings because of the super absorbent surface. There are a number of other lovely items available in her shop – Harriet’s Blue and White – but I’m counting adding one of her pins to my jacket this fall.

Elise Birnbaum is a maker, skill collector, coveter of interesting objects, and founder of Pittsburgh-based OATMEAL. She works predominantly with clay and metal, creating pieces for both body and home that are inspired by simple things and made in a narrow, often neutral, color palette. I’ve been following Elise, and the creations she often shares on Instagram, for some time now and very much appreciate the way she doesn’t depend on color to make her pieces standout. (One of those knot necklaces is definitely on my birthday wish list!)
