Season's Must Haves
Smack dab in the middle of the week, I injected a little girl time.
Few and far between with these busy months of styling. Ironically, we spent much of the time talking trends. More importantly, interpreting the latest and greatest fall goodness based on individual style. Which leads me to Marissa Webb.
What an amazing collection this season! Solids speak to the season. However, they also say 'timeless.' This collection is well suited for all time. For many body shapes. I love the layers. And non-layering pieces. Great staples all around.

This is everywhere.
And I swore I wouldn't post it. But honestly, I am so mesmerized by it that I can't help myself.
Isabel Marant, of course. One of my favorite designers mastering the blanket sweater trend for fall. This Italian-made knit with touches of soft wool and alpaca, features a black, anthracite and dark-brown motif that taps into the label's global-traveler aesthetic. Teamed with the soft wool-blend woven wrap skirt with frayed trims and asymmetric hem, this is comfortably fabulous!
While I never go for matchy matchy, this is my exception.

If only I had decent eyebrows. Because bold brows are still making an impact this season.
While bold can sometimes come across as hard, makeup artist Diane Kendal went for a slightly more arched look for Carolina Herrera, making them more feminine. Paired with pinkish-purple stained lips (which Kendal created by swiping on M.A.C. Lipstick in Boysenberry and blotting it away), it can be quite sophisticated.
Another definite do this fall are eyes done up in gray/brown colors for an easy daytime smoky eye.

Downsizing can be good.
Especially if it involves stellar pieces of jewelry. Enter: J.Crew.
I cannot say enough about this Wishbone Cuff in Russian gold plating. First and foremost, it fits my tiny wrist! Typically, open-ended cuffs do not work for my wrist. They tend to fall right off. However, this is styled so perfectly for small wrists. I might just have to buy a second one for when I wear this one out.
With minimal jewelry hitting the scene this season, finding the perfect mix is essential. Between this cuff, the hinged choker (I wear it backwards) and the ID ring, I am set from J.Crew. Of course, I have added a few other amazing simplicities for fall. But this cuff happens to be my favorite.
Here's to minimalism!
I always have a thing for something. Right now, it's shearling.
It never fails, the closer we get to fall, the more in tune with the warm and fuzzy I become. And boots (always)! After drooling over Chloé's reversible shearling and leather coat, I can't get shearling off my brain.
Since July, I have been looking for a pair of shearling-lined leather boots. And voilà! Along comes Jimmy Choo with the Dalton boot. Perfect for the chillbound temps of winter. I love that these boots can be worn both folded down with the shearling flaps exposed or laced all the way up for added warmth.
