The thought of whipping out a dark, mysterious eye for fall has me quite excited. I rarely add color under my eyes. However, this upcoming season, I will attempt to sport this look. As long as I can pull it off without looking like a raccoon.

Line me up, baby!

fallboots14I wish I didn't love boots so much. My wallet would thank me.

However, after ordering two new pairs of fabulous fall boots, I am counting down the days until they can be worn. I am even contemplating bringing them on my upcoming excursion, as the temps will be cooler.

Nothing makes me more excited about the season ahead than boots. I realize I have countless pairs, but each and every one gets lots of love. It's my favorite purchase of the year. Every year.

If you haven't already pre-ordered your fall boots, now is the time. The good ones go fast!

Just the anticipation of cooler weather makes me giddy. Fall bound! Well, not quite — but for one week. And I'll take it.

I am about to enter early fall temps. A week of vaca for the summer. I am beyond thrilled it will be spent in a cooler climate after spending six weeks at lacrosse tournaments in crazy heat. Sizzling heat. So yes, I am ready.

The easiest way to slip into the upcoming season is with simple basics that give good punch. Like a short sleeve cashmere sweater by Annapurna. So many colors to choose from. Luxury in simple solids!

I am no stranger to scarves. If I'm being honest, I have a little addiction.

Time of year makes no difference. I love scarves anytime, from anywhere and for any occasion. When I find a good one, I share. So I must pass on this featherweight cotton-voile scarf from Rose & Rose. The frayed style has been hand-loomed and embroidered in India. Which makes it special, along with the high contrast colors — bright pink against white. Love!

I can't believe it. I have found a match to my favorite mascara!

Bobbi Brown has definitely created something special with her Smokey Eye mascara. This formula promises thicker, fuller and bolder lashes — and definitely delivers. It stays put all day without smudging, smearing or flaking. 

Smokey Eye mascara builds volume, lash by lash, by way of the brilliant brush which combs through eyelashes from roots to tips. The result is stretched-out lashes in an instant. Eyes that draw attention!

Thank you, Bobbi. This mascara, I love.
