Fall Faves and Heading Over to the Dark Side.

i know, i know. one more post about Fall
and you're going to gouge your eyes
out with a coffee stirrer.

just hear me out on this one...



With the Fall comes many things...
- the changing of the leaves
- pumpkin spice lattes
- activities like pumpkin hunts and apple picking
- cashmere cardi's and denim duds

but most importantly...

- dark hair and dark nailpolish!
As summer draws to a close, I can't help but get into the Fall spirit early by making a few lifestyle changes. Enhacements, if you will. And I'm not talking about changing out my closets or packing away the beach towels for another ten months. Because I've already done that. I'm talking about the yearly switch from my Spring and Summer 'do to something a little more cool-weather appropro.

i'm trying to get deeper in touch with my Sicilian roots by
switching over to a dark mahogany. i think i'm in love!


and my [other] new favorite Fall accent?

OPI's Black Cherry Chutney

I love it SO much that it's even taken the place of my usual fave, Linkin Park After Dark!


What are some of your Fall faves?
