lanvinsuedebootiesWhile I may not need to add any more boots to my wardrobe this season (what? say it isn't so!), this pair could certainly make me change my mind.

Gorgeous gray suede ankle boots from Lanvin. Super functional for day-to-day life. These could easily replace my go tos!

While I am in pre-fall mode, there's no holding back. I am full-on in.

And being the Brunello Cucinelli girl that I am, I can barely stand waiting for the upcoming season.

I am in awe of Cucinelli's FW15 collection. More like, in love. Every detail is impeccable. Delicious. Cold weather worthy and over-the-top luxurious.

Sure, it's practically 100 degrees. However, it's never too early to think about my favorite time of the year!

slshearlingfw15You know summer isn't my season.

So, of course I have my eye on everything fall.

If you aren't already prepared, July is pre-order month. Hallelujah!

Between packing clients for abroad, shopping with teens for back-to-school and speaking engagements, oh and travel + puppy training, I am on the pre-order train.

Speaking of which, hello Saint Laurent suede coat with shearling collar and leather trim. Good gracious, I am in love. Seriously simple, but delicious. Made in Italy, to boot.

I know it seems ridiculous to think about the cooler months in this heat. However, it's never too early in my book.

If this doesn't make you smile on a cold and rainy day, I don't know what will. Of course, on a warm and sunny day I'd be over the moon wearing this.

Thank you GEM for bringing us this music notes embellished crepe dress in vibrant yellow. Paired with the green tie-up sandals makes it an easy sell.

Having had a taste of warm temperatures in early April, anything below 60 is just wrong. It chills to the core. With cashmere already put away, it's back to layers. And I have no issue layering over this dress. Think white linen jacket.

My favorite trend this season happens to be one of my all-time favorite staples — the white dress.

Timeless. Yet, evolving each spring.

With length playing a major role this season, you can count on everything being easy and versatile in the dress department. 

And don't be afraid to go high contrast with black sandals, a black handbag or dark jewelry.

Whether you choose a long, midi or short dress, it's white all the way.
