Ahhhh September, my absolute favorite month of the year. The days are warm, the nights are cool.

Not only is it “Back to school” time, but it’s also “Back to me time”. I love shedding my summer skin. New haircut, new denim, new slides or loafers. And always a new little jacket. Overall, I am striving for a perfect minimalist approach, low key and casual.

This season I am also on the hunt for the perfect straight leg jean. I haven’t found them yet but when I do, you will all hear about it!

These Lou and Grey chinos are a perfect transition pant, light enough for the September sun, but warm enough for the cool nights, and the grey shouts fall.

Everlane makes a perfect V-neck T-shirt, it comes in loads of colors and will look great with any skinny pant.

Last Spring I ran into a friend who was wearing black yoga pants, a grey hoodie and this fabulous puffer vest from Norma Kamali. I swore to myself I would buy it in the fall.

For some reason, I have been super attracted this year to Mustard Yellow. I always thought I looked terrible in that color, but it turns out my skin loves Mustard, and this Theory sweater will look so cute with the grey skinnies.

This Vince wrap midi dress says "Hello to Fall" in a big way. A wrap dress looks good on just about everyone and I'd love these with a pair of these super edgy black Kate Spade moto boots.

For those days when I'm not ready to dive into boots yet, both of these mules – one from Topshop and the other from Steve Madden – will blend nicely in my fall capsule wardrobe.

And finally, a new bag. I am sort of over my totes and cross bodies and wouldn’t mind a “hobo” bag, in the black of course. The Coach Hobo is a classic and the Kate Spade version is great as well.

September is the most beautiful month of the year for many reasons, but mostly because we have an opportunity to reinvent ourselves. Get rid of the stuff we never wear and make a few great purchases and live the easy life, knowing you can throw on anything and look and feel amazing.
