Oh, how I wish it were that time.

Time to wear weighted elegance, in the form of this gorgeous Gucci wool natté coat.

I am a sucker for ivory coats, first off. Let's add to that, Italian made. And finally, the fact that this style is timeless with the double-breasted closure and notched lapels. Covered buttons, to boot!

While the heat is still lingering, my mind is elsewhere, waiting to embrace the cooler months. Yes, even the frigid temps on the northern lacrosse fields. After all, that means I get to layer!

Sneakers are still on trend.

Yay for comfort!

Add a sports-luxe finish to any daytime look with Alexander McQueen's leather sneakers. Available in white with several trim options, the classic style is elevated with a chunky rubber sole that features a built-in wedge for height and comfort. A beautiful rosy-pink suede panel to the heel is printed with the designer's logo in an opulent gold-tone effect for an instant dose of chic.

loveteeHaving just arrived back from an amazingly beautiful family weekend showering my middle sister, the bride-to-be, with lots of love, this tee just seems fitting today.

Expressing how you feel through clothing is fun, and of course stylish! This soft featherweight tee, crafted from pure cotton jersey by Each x Other, is an easy addition to your closet, bringing lots of love and happiness. Wear with joggers and wedges, a skirt and flirty heels or jeans, a tailored jacket and sneakers.

A conversation-starter for sure.

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of lunching with some of my favorite peeps at Neiman Marcus for their fall preview. This exclusive event showcased the season's best looks, from head to toe.

In one word, awesome.

We are coming upon my favorite season of the year. And the picks from Ken Downing, Fashion Director, have me giddy. On top of the scrumptious fabrics and prints, Neiman Marcus has a growing list of items found only at Neiman Marcus (look for #onlyatNM). The consistent theme in the past several seasons is color — berry baby! And my favorite model, Brooke, shows us just how to wear it.

Keeping it simple, Neiman Marcus shares their list of must haves for fall.

Women

Bold gold and high shine metallics, ripe berry shades, velvet, florals, skirts that move, the new bomber, chokers, top-handle bags, the adorned shoe and the dramatic eye.

Men

Browns (from camel to whiskey), British accents (plaids, checks and tweeds), velvet, 70s swagger, attitude tees, suede and shearling outwear, trainers and statement topcoats.

These are my personal favorites:

Time to get excited for fall, even if your particular climate isn't cooperating.

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.
