The Summer to Fall Transition

We are thoroughly enjoying the weather that we’re getting this September here in the northeast…I guess this is how you Californians feel all year round! Sigh. Well, if you’re like me I just can’t stand the thought of parting with some of my key pieces that I wore all summer. To get a little more wear out of them, I’ve paired them with some great transition styles…let’s get started!

1. The Colored Capri – instead of the tank and sandals, opt for something a little warmer! Paired with chambray, a cozy sweater, colorful accessories and flats – you’ve got a great look for fall!

2. The LBD – lets get some more use out of this tank dress…it goes from summer party to work appropriate with a chunky sweater, tights and ankle boots. Muted accessories finish off this polished look for fall.

3. The Maxi Skirt – one of my go-to articles this summer! Again, lose the sandals and the easy, breezy top – here we paired it with a great autumn color, mustard. With a clean, white button down and gold accessories this becomes a must-have look for this season.
Happy fall shopping! Remember, it’s about your SHAPE, not your WEIGHT…dress for your body shape this season and watch and see how great you look and feel!

Stuff My Stocking

Well, shoppers – 13 days left for you to purchase those perfect gifts for your loved ones and friends. The holidays just seem to creep up on us every single year, no? Every year in October I repeat a mantra to myself …I will be done shopping by December 1…and, uh, every year, I do not even BEGIN until December 1. Oh well, I guess as long as the shopping is done by the 25th we’ve completed a major accomplishment!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE stocking stuffers- I would rather get smaller gifts in my stocking than one big gift…I’ve always been that way! What has been your favorite stocking gift that you have given or received? If you still have a “stuffer” on your list that you need to buy for here are some of my top picks with a little help from some of my favorite sites and stores.

A few of my favorite things!

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! Let’s be thankful together!

A short list of thanksgiving (in no particular order):

1) This coat. Oh my gosh! This coat! This coat!

2) Stuffing. I have stuffing once a year, and I look forward to indulging it in its deliciousness the other 364 days.

3) I own this wrap dress in charcoal grey & can’t wait for the concord purple to go on sale. This year, I’m especially thankful that Banana Republic created the most perfect faux-wrap dress.

4) I’m grateful for the unfailing delight of my God: “…as a bridegroom rejoices over his bride, so will your God rejoice over you.” Isaiah 62:5b

Happy, HAPPY Thanksgiving! What are YOU thankful for?
