this just in: OCTOBER

I took this gorgeous photo today behind my apartment.  //////////  I just had to share this.   

Are you ready for pumpkin spice, orange leaves, and costumes? I have been waiting all year for this. October ushers in the following 3 months of  non-stop celebratory eating. I mean really everywhere you go there are cheese and meat trays and bowls of candy. 

Also being outdoors is best this time of year. There are so many incredible colors. Maybe I am a little biased with fall colors and my love for them since I am a redhead. Seriously though, everything outside is like an instagram filter is permanently on and I love it.  

Next is the fashion. I have been dying to drag out my riding boots and scarves and pair them with this season's skinny jeans. Oh and I want to get some more riding boots. I am obsessed with riding boots. October is the best time for them because they aren't soaking wet from trudging around in the snow.

Lastly Halloween, I think nothing else is needed to be said here. Cheers & happy October everyone.

I run past this spot at least 3 times a week. It was only today with the light shinning just right and the leaves changing that I noticed how beautiful this graffiti is. Creative expressions are truly everywhere. We just need to be more aware and open to them for inspiration.

Chocolate Soleil- Color Play

I am a girlie girl. Therefore I was powdering my nose today. No I was actually adding some contours to my cheek bones. Then I fell for these bold colors.
This lovely face powder is Chocolate Soleil from Too Faced. It is literally made with cocoa powder and smells like chocolate. I am in love. It is also a 100% matte bronzer which is most ideal for contouring the cheeks. I highly recomend it.

Summer's End

Summer is officially over. Yesterday was the last day to wear white pants. This is seriously bumming me out because I bought the most gorgeous, white, laced maxi at the designer H&M in Soho, NY and I only wore it twice.

However, after browsing Nordstrom's fall catalogue I will live. Bring on the british tan riding boots, pea coats, and black on black. I can't emphasize enough how ready I am for riding boots or any boots at all. I have my eye set on several. 

Sorry, not sorry about the second Mary-Kate and Ashley post. They just know what the hell is up with high fashion in New York. Yes, yes and I love them and the cheetah (again) this fall. 

As for the LK Bennett boots, no way I will get those this season at that price. However, the Clarks boots are a yes. In fact my girlfriend Dina just got them in the British tan. She is one of the first girls in the west to have them. (Privileged information through a certain Clark's manager.)

I think this season I NEED a quilted coat along with a new pea coat. These two are both on my radar hard. Please note both are extremely redhead friendly. My husband, Trey, has the  Guess Military pea coat from last season (mens version) and loves it. Its so warm. Cheers.

Nothing like fresh flowers and macaroons to get fresh ideas and work flowing.

My childhood idols. Mark- Kate and Ashley Olson have been designing high end fashion for several years now. Their US collection The Row has been a huge success. Some of their pieces have even been used in Marc Jacobs line. They have most recently launched a new and more affordable line Bik Bok. Bik Bok is a punk inspired line that is chic. Mary Kate has been known for outlandish and phenomenal bohemian style I feel that a bit of that personal flare is still in the Bik Bok line. However, they are only shipping to Sweden and Norway. Hopefully in the next year or so they will open the line up to the US.
