Labor Day Weekend has always marked the first sign of fall. While sunshine still gleams the day, a chill comes whenever the wind blew my way.

Sigh! Must summer so hastily drift by?

While fall teases me with shorter days and crispy air, I flirt right back with a few mending's in the make:

Navy and Gold Shadow

Attempting this fall's newest eye trend of navy and gold combo

Matte Base
Exchanging summer's easy, breezy no-foundation face with heavy matte base.

Three of my favorite matte formulas

Jewel-Toned Colors

Wearing rich, eye-catching colors 

Planning to top this dress with a heavy card

Bulky Sweaters

Wrapping myself in bulky, comfy sweaters


Flaunting my inner seattllite in flannel and boots

Read a Book

Losing myself in a really good book, hopefully with the fireplace crackling and hot cocoa steaming
