Those who know me know that I am always looking for a change or update to my hair and beauty regimen. I drive my ever-so-patient and dedicated hair stylist Michelle Tabbert a bit crazy with my “what’s new and next?” conversation as it relates to hair. Michelle recently began talking about Balayage, which is the French word for sweep. In the salon it is the freehand sweeping motion and painting of low lights and highlights. The best part of the Balayage technique is that it can be done so close to the scalp that it grows out looking very natural.

I am all about capes, caplets and wraps this season, and it seems I’m in good company! Sarah Jessica Parker and I are in cahoots, with both of us loving bold, statement monograms on optional outerwear. I plan to do this with a few of my clients this season.


SmittenSmitten is offering a stunner this fall by Tribal with a leather belt and piping. Layering is the perfect option with our climate, so say no to the coat and try a cape or caplet instead!




Main and TaylorHunter boots and boot socks are the best when it comes to buying iconic rain boots that are über comfy. If you’re wanting to buy yourself an updated style and color, this is the right time to do so before the holiday rush for the perfect stocking stuffer. I say do it now, so you’re ready for the winter weather ahead.
