Is it really September already?!  This summer has flown past.  There have been lots of changes in my life this past summer (that I’ll be posting about soon), which have made it coming to its end bittersweet.  The theme of change in my life has been mirrored by the weather – leaves are changing, the sky is clearer, nights are cooler (meaning 90 degrees instead of 100), days are drier, fall is definitely coming.  Along with the weather, my closet is also going through a transition.  I love fall clothes but always wished I lived somewhere where fall clothes mean light sweaters, jeans, dresses and tights, boots and colorful scarves instead of shorts and t shirts (with a cardigan at night).    Here in Florida, by the time it’s cool enough to wear your fall clothes it already December!

So, here’s some of what I’m currently craving for my Fall wardrobe…

Cape Trench Coat

Fall ensemble

red/orange pants and leopard loafers (Steve Madden) – my Fall uniform

Never thought I'd consider head to toe denim, but this look is all american. The secret is the light and dark denim paired together.

how awesome is JCrew’s polkadotted cover look for August?

As far as hair and makeup go for Fall, my inspiration can be summed up in one fashion and beauty icon: Bridget Bardot

I can’t wait for cooler weather and fall fashion!  I hope everyone had a memorable summer 🙂
