Dreaming of ~ Autumn Luxe

Fashion
Autumn has the most lovely collections of any season.  Although it can be difficult to think of them in 100 degree temperatures, I anxiously await their arrival each year.  Catching my eye is the red lip that is in nearly every collection.
 
 
I love a beautiful, well crafted boot.  I’m especially smitten with these from Christian Louboutin.  The shoe magician has done it once again.. stolen my heart with his red sole.

Along with the change of landscape colours, I like to begin incorporating new cosmetic colours. 
I will be donning red lips by the new Rouge G de Guerlain
 
 
The shimmery white gold jewel compact is designed by Lorenz Bäumer, the young and talented jeweller in Place Vendôme, Paris.  The bonus, a mirror that automatically appears when the compact is opened

…and this lovely nude shade by YSL

Also, catching my eye is this pair of earrings by Lana Jewelry.  Aren’t they fabulous?  I’m not always fond of small diamonds as they can sometimes make an item look of less quality; however, these delicate ones add a lovely touch.

 
I just ordered this Equipment leopard print blouse… still time to pair it with summer whites.

I will also be adding these coated J Brands to my wardrobe.  I think these might possibly be my most worn piece this season as they are quite versatile.  Giving the look of leather, these jeans can easily be dressed up with stilettos or paired with booties for school… whichever, they are chic and will transition into each season.

Summer definitely takes a toll on my long locks.  Although I do my best to keep them healthy, they seem to be a tad dry during this time of year.  After reading stellar reviews of WEN hair care, I decided to order the Basic Kit in Summer Mango Coconut.  I will report back with a full review.
 
 
Sorry for the lack of posts this week… school started in full swing and barely a moment to breathe.
 
Wishing you a most lovely rest of the week!
xoxo, B
