fall. bar none, this is the season i love most. the time i catch myself taking pleasure in the smallest of tasks; brisk mornings taking the mail out x turning the heat on for the first time x craving the warmth of a fresh cup of coffee x snuggling ... this is the time i feel most alive.  and can we please discuss wardrobe?  the options that open up with autumn might just be the biggest pro... this is the b-e-s-t time to dress.  example > in this look i'm rocking as much texture as humanly possible; leather, wool, and [faux] fur.  it's a time to update your lipstick color, haircut +/- color [note: new BANGS].  take some time for yourself, look in the mirror with a little bit of extra care, and add something that makes you smile.  friends, life is short but sweet for certain.

“her pleasure in the walk must arise from the exercise and the day, from the view of the last smiles of the year upon the tawny leaves and withered hedges, and from repeating to herself some few of the thousand poetical descriptions extant of autumn--that season of peculiar and inexhaustible influence on the mind of taste and tenderness--that season which has drawn from every poet worthy of being read some attempt at description, or some lines of feeling.”  -- jane austen
