Can you believe fall is right around the corner? If your summer was anything like mine, it flew by, and it’s hard to grasp that it’s time to switch gears and get into a fall state of mind. That’s why this week’s issue is all about getting us in the mood for cooler weather and taking on the new season in style. From boots and scarves to sparkly jewels, I’m showing you my picks in some of the newest neutrals and metallic shades. Slate gray makes a big appearance – you might even say it’s the new black.

Gray also makes a stylish statement on the custom wedding invitations I designed for this week’s Ceci Bride Cornelia. I’ve always been a big fan of mixing metallics in various tones and finishes for a look that’s timeless, but with a fresh, modern twist. Click over to Our Muse to see all the details of Cornelia’s so-chic wedding, planned by my friend and Principal Planner of Daughter of Design, Annie Lee. Annie also shared with us what she’s coveting this season in Fabulous Finds. I hope you find something that fascinates you for fall!


P.S. Special thanks this week to Nathan Smith of Ira Lippke Studios for the photos of Cornelia and Robert’s Hamptons wedding.
