September is spectacular for so many reasons.  From fashion's full-on frenzy to fresh ways to breathe new life into your wardrobe, that first rush of fall feels amazing!  Here are seven chic standouts of the season that you're going to love...

1.  Smoking Slippers:  Designed in an expansive array of patterns and fabrics, these easy to wear slip- ons can elevate an everyday outfit into a step above the average.

2. Moto Jackets:  Whether leather, multi-textured or bright, bold and beautiful, these gorgeous and sometimes playful jackets are becoming the new blazer.  Trying tossing one on over your favorite jeans and tee and pairing it up with a haute heel.  On dressier days, it can be just the right topper for that still wearable sundress or fluted skirt.

3.  Booties:  With the sandals you adore now packed away and the tall boots you love not yet out on display, it's the bootie to the rescue.  From flat and casual to streamlined and sky-high, this ankle high boot is fall's favorite footwear.  Like all great wardrobe staples, this one works effortlessly with nearly every look you want to pull off.  From skirts and dresses to statement sweaters and denim, they are a must-have shoe for fall.

4.  Statement Sweaters:  Speaking of "need it now" items for autumn, the statement sweater is another oh-so versatile piece you'll be loving long into winter.  Designed in super soft fabrics and eye-catching, playful designs, these toppers are showing up just about everywhere.  Like all great wardrobe staples, the statement sweater works with nearly all of what you already own and essentially makes the outfit.  From animal prints to iconic graphics, these cool weather warm ups can be teamed up with everything from skirts to skinnies and look fabulous doing so.

5.  Color Contrasting:  Color is currently starring as 'The New Neutral'.  Don't be afraid to add a few dashes to your wardrobe as well as combine contrasting shades.  My favorite on-trend way it's being done right now is with black and white.  From tweed fabrics to color-blocked designs, jackets, dresses and tops are all taking on a bold new life.

6.  Carry All Totes:  September means back to the regular routine for so many of us and that requires a lot of lugging.  Whether heading back to work or back to school, you'll need a really great tote to get you and your essentials there with ease.

7.  New York Fashion Week:  Little more need be said about this fashion-fabulous event.  As designers, models, photogs and bloggers from all points head to the big city, the fashion pulse soars and so too do the pieces you'll be craving next.  Trust me, they are gorgeous.

Wishing all you lovely ladies a beautiful Monday and thanks so much for reading!!
