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.

chanelnudelipsAmong the many lip color trends this season, I am gravitating toward nudes.

While this may seem like a no-brainer, or an easy everyday look for most, I have a harder time with nudes. I feel more comfortable in highly pigmented color. My favorite being berry. Thankfully, reds and berries will make an impact this fall, as well. And I am stocked, with plenty to choose from.

However, I do want to experiment with this beautiful warm nude by Chanel — Rouge Coco Shine in Intime. Perhaps a little gloss atop?

Oh, how I have missed snuggling weather!

You know ... when you get home, after a long day, and immediately slip into deliciously comfy loungewear or PJs. It's amazing how productive I can be after work in my jammies. And down slippers.

Thanks to Hanro, this deluxe cotton pajama set is the perfect way to kick off fall! Cooler temps, I'm prepped and ready for you. Let's go.

And the celebration of fall (yesterday)! So much style goodness in store this season. I'm just thrilled to say this season, versus this upcoming season!

Between shopping with clients, preparing their wardrobes for fall, and getting closets purged and organized in general, style expression is on the loose!

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a client's eyes light up — whether it be from freeing them of unnecessary items in their closet or picking out something new that they never would've dreamt possible.

Exactly why I love my job.

I count my blessings daily. This line of work is rewarding on so many levels. I am fortunate to share these awesome moments on a daily basis with my clients. And when my clients, unknowingly, happen to meet, become friends, and come to realize that I am a common denominator — even better.

So here's to fall. And everything it has to offer.

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.
