I've seen this bag. Up close and personal.
Not only is the color and material yummy for fall, but nothing beats the functionality of living hands free with a crossbody bag.
With gold-tone hardware and exaggerated stitching, the Hudson shoulder bag from Chloé is a romantic, bohemian dream, with the hanging tassel sealing the deal.
Perfect for casual everyday life.

Oh, don't I wish.
If only this heat would break to give us a glimpse of fall. I am so ready to wear cozy pieces like this.
September is rolling in on Thursday. And while I'd like to think we can move into fall, it doesn't quite work that way. In fact, it may be November before we feel cooler temps.
Until then, we can dream. Plan. Play. And Prepare.
So let's start with this wool cardigan by Demobaza. Wool deliciousness to keep us warm. I can see myself creating daily outfits around this, as I won't want to take it off. Those are the kinds of pieces I love.
As I continue to purge — both clients and myself — only the items that we love and feel a connection with should remain in our closets. They must fill us up, or at least serve a specific purpose.
Is your closet ready for fall? If not, time to call me.

Research has shown that a decline in cognitive functions begins decades before symptoms actually appear. In fact, scientists have found progressive declines in memory, learning, attention and decision-making in people as young as 35 years old.
This stopped me in my tracks.
I had not considered the decline of brain health until recently, personally, as I eat clean and am on my health game. However, based on what I am learning, this is a great vitamin to add to your daily routine before entering your 40s.
Years ago, Michael Colgan, Ph. D., expert in brain aging, along with a team of scientists collaborated on finding a solution for preserving brain health. Unlike other products that contain only one or two individual nutrients to support one or two brain functions, Brain Boost & Renewal has sought the best synergistic combinations to support multiple brain structures and functions. This particular brand has proven results in the increase of overall congnitive function, memory retention, decision-making response time and balance.
Guess what now resides in my vitamin cupbard?
Having recently come back from back-to-back travel (vacation and health conference), I am grateful for so much. Faith and family at the forefront.
As a wardrobe stylist, you might find it hard to believe that I don't have a hard time parting with material items. Yes, I love beautiful things. I appreciate the art aspect in fashion. However, when every diamond you own is stolen from you while on vacation, everything quickly comes into perspective.
I do not share this with you for pity. In fact, I believe it happened for a reason. And I choose to conjure up in my mind that the 18 year olds that took off with all of my jewelry (yet, left my Cartier watch?) needed it in desperation.
Getting past the violation and grief of what the jewelry symbolized, I realize the newness that is about to be created. Something amazingly beautiful will come of this. I feel it in my soul.
And my family. Thank goodness for these loving, supportive, stunning people in my life. That vacation goes down as the best family vacation ever.
As we look to fall and all it has to bring (cooler temps, especially), I keep coming back to the ease of these See By Chloé suede boots.
Utility meets retro chic, this slouchy style crafted from velvety camel suede is finished with a patterned lace-up tie. The chunky heel brings comfort, while making the casual pairings ongoing — from dress to button down and skinnies to sweater and cropped flares to tee and skirt.
