the summer season is slipping away
fall is in the air
fresh starts, new beginnings
and a burst of colour in the foliage of the trees.
A great time to start some projects,
take a class,
shop for accessories,
clean out the closet
declutter the pantry
get rid of expired medications
polish boots, shoes and handbags.
Take stock of what is hanging in the closet...
what clothes get worn, what clothes do not feel right when worn.
Time to "observe trends" that may be in the magazines, on blogs, in the shops.
Can you rework what you have in your closet?
How about pairing separates in a fresh new way?
Perhaps it is time for re-evaluating one's personal style
how our current lifestyle might affect the clothes that we keep
those that we may donate, consign or hand down...
What new things could thrill or inject energy to what we have and love?
What "speaks" to your inner muse?
Can you kick it up a notch?
Is it a genuine representation of your personal style?
Does it feel real or do you feel like you are wearing a "costume."
Shop at the charity and consignment shops for a splash of colour,
find something a bit unusual...a scarf, a belt, a bag are great pieces that don't have to break the budget and are ways to add a punch of colour or texture or style.
The least expensive accessory that I purchased so far this season is a lipstick.
The new kid on the block is #315 True Red
It is the first red that I have purchased since I was in Paris.
It will be fun wearing this shade with my crisp white shirt and jeans.
I have a lot of black and grey garments and this pop of colour will brighten up my pale complexion.
I've received numerous compliments on the Rose 31 scent by Le Labo.
Layering products makes a fragrance last longer so I phoned Nordstrom and ordered the Rose 31 lotion yesterday.
Wearing a new scent and a red lipstick is giving me a psychological boost.
Have you found anything new and exciting for the new season?
Une Femme has some new lipstick shades
coincidentally I was working on this post when I read her blog post!
Great minds think alike!
The WW regime is really paying off...
almost 10 pounds down.
I am not hungry and have been pleased with how my clothes are fitting.
More energy and better sleep patterns have been wonderful side effects.
My skin has started to glow...
I think it must be all the water that I am drinking
plus the variety of colourful vegetables and fruits on the menu...
less red meat
a bit of fish, lean free range chicken and organic eggs.
