autumn eyes

“autumn…the year’s last, loveliest smile.”

early autumn days are a wonderful thing. the maple leaves shine with gold while the last shades of summer linger in the warm afternoon air. for me, it’s the best of both seasons –ย 
cashmere cardigans layered with embroidered cotton tops, flirty navy print jumpers with cognac leather oxfords, wool trousers with washed silk tanks – and my closet couldn’t be happier.
and my inspiration for this year’s early autumn looks? elle france, marion cotillard and these heart-stirring images…
and with my head full of long necklaces, breezy silk blouses, flirty shorts and fantastic accessories, the first of my early autumn outfits came together…just like that. isn’t that bike print tote is too cute to pass up?

    My autumn outfits involve boots! I’ve missed my boots so much over summer, I can’t help but break them out all the time in autumn.

    And I am in love with that bicycle tote bag!

    Simply spectacular! My autumn outfit is dark denim, cognac riding boots and button downs with fitted blazers-not unlike my look for summer, winter or spring, at least in SF!
