Hello, Fall

As the weather starts becoming more fall-like, I start becoming happier. I love the idea of a hot cup of tea, a chunky scarf and just a few simple layers. Of course I wont even get into the changing of leaves, the apple picking and everything else that comes along with the season.
This past weekend included visiting some antique shops with Keith (on the hunt for a Mid-Century Modern bar cart), staying over my friend Sonia's house in NJ and having brunch with girlfriends at Rose Water. I also went to Garden State Plaza where I visited the Westfield Mall Style Lounge, which is their partnership with Stacy London. The idea behind the Style Lounge is pretty amazing since these stylists will offer free styling advice to anyone who wants it.  I watched them help a  15 year old girl who was wearing oversized t-shirts and leggings everyday to school. She wanted to feel "cooler" as she went to school, but wasn't sure where to start. Definitely very inspiring to watch and like fashion community service.
Well, I'll stop rambling... Hope you all have a wonderful day!
