I'm not sure if it's here to stay, but cooler fall temps have definitely moved in to my neck of the woods. That means super soft wool pants for the kids, and layers for me. This month's mood board gives you versatility for those crisp 70 degree mornings and warm 85 degree afternoons.

// Patterns //This month, try one of Named Patterns' new designs, the Olivia Jersey Wrap Dress. A wrap dress works for almost any occasion, so wear this one to work and stay warm in cropped sleeves. For your casual weekend trip to the apple orchard, make up the Sanibel Dress (or romper!) from Hey June. One view comes with full-length sleeves complete with placket, or roll up those puppies when you're hot. Need another layer? Try my TNT leggings pattern, McCall's 6173.
Bonus! This month I'm including two bag patterns! Finish off your work look with the Valencia clutch, from Seamwork Magazine. Small backpacks are trendy right now, and you can join in with the London Backpack from LBG Studio.
// Fabric //To me, slinky knits will always scream "wrap dress!" and it even works with some prints, like this ikat rayon spandex knit from Raspberry Creek Fabrics. The Sanibel would be crazy cozy in a cotton flannel, from Robert Kaufman via Fabric.com. Leggings don't have to be boring, and if you make them up in a metallic gold mesh from Mood they won't be! Finally, both bags can be made from some snazzy faux leather, from Hancock Fabrics.
