fall inspiration series part 4: accessories! (guest blogger mckay/oatmeal lace)

from jacin: oh. my. goodness!!  there is so much loveliness in today's guest post that i can hardly contain myself.  i'm so excited to have the talented mckay from oatmeal lace design (ok first - can we please discuss how much i love her name and second - how much i love her company name!) who has been gracious enough to share some of her beautiful fall inspiration finds with us today :)  if you're on twitter, link up at #fallinspiration!  please make sure you check out mckay's gorgeous website, etsy shop and blog - this girl is the real deal! thank you mckay :)

from mckay: I am tickled pink to present my take on fall wedding accessories with you all. This is the first post I've done that potentially more than 5 people will read (eek!!) so I hope I don't disappoint. Thanks so much for having me, Jacin!

Fall is probably my absolute favorite season, although here on the gulf coast of Florida a fall wedding most likely will entail 80 degree weather, seagulls squawking and few, if any, changing leaves. I'm picturing a fall wedding somewhere a little chillier, with maybe the smell of a lingering bonfire in the air and the nice crunch of fallen leaves underfoot. Totally jealous of you brides who get that experience!!!

Today I put together a couple different accessory boards highlighting some of my favorite autumn tones: golds, creams & browns (also staple colors in my wardrobe...)

Let's take a look, shall we?

{clockwise from top} i, want, every, single, one!

What's that you say? A little too much color? Maybe one of these lovelies will tickle your fancy.
{clockwise from top} gotta, get, that, boom, boom, pow

Getting married outdoors and want to incorporate more natural looking elements in your wedding day look? Try one of these!

{clockwise from top} a, few, of, my, favorite, things

And I'll finish up today with just a couple ideas for accessorizing your bridal party.
{clockwise from top} yes, yes, yes!

These are just the tip of the iceberg- I have an inspiration folder bursting at the seams but wanted to play it cool my first go round. :) Hope I've given you some ideas to nibble on!
