There's something about the air in autumn that makes me want to go clad in all-black. Maybe it's caused by the changes in the light and the colors of the trees, or maybe it's the shift in attitude, a desire to finish the year strong while also harboring a sense of nostalgia that ultimately comes with shorter days and cooler nights. My mantra then, for my favorite season, is to be bold, go easy, and do more, but feel effortless. These pieces from the new Marc Jacobs collection do just that for me - the shift dress, undemanding but oversized and tucked in all the right places, with just the right amount of details, and the Box Bag's marbling effect that lends extra texture for good measure. I love the lunchbox shape of the bag especially - it surprisingly stores a ton of essentials and still maintains its smooth, eye catching shape. As someone who appreciates both art and form, I'm taking this bag with me wherever I go this season, day or night, for its understated look and genius utility. To go freely, to do things effortlessly.

I've rounded up some of my favorite styles from Marc Jacobs’ latest collection below:

As you guys know, I'm an ardent nester - being at home is the most freeing for me so I made it a priority to make it feel like my sanctuary. This would involve filling it with it a bunch of plants and adding unique furniture pieces that really highlighted the space and my personality. After months of scouring and multiple trips to various nurseries and flea markets, I'd inched closer to creating my ideal space. Still, it just didn't feel complete until I'd made the finishing touches with key pieces from Perigold - the pouf and marble accents were the perfect texture/look I didn't know I'd needed. This pouf/bean bag chair is the bean bag of my dreams and it sort of encapsulates me perfectly - relaxed and casual but a little posh at the same time. Best of all, Perigold offers a white glove service on large parcels, meaning they can deliver the package, unbox, assemble the piece(s) in a matter of minutes, clean it up and then be on their way. The ease definitely made up for all the times I had to lug huge plants and antique finds myself haha!

Though mentally I'm not quite ready to let go of summer, my body is more than happy to slip into the season of overcast mornings and crisp evenings. As always, my fall uniform will be kept simple and feel unfettered, much like this combo of shimmery silk and a plush mock-neck (made of other natural fibers!). As we inch closer to the season that precedes yet another new year, I can't help but become (prematurely?) reflective and hopeful for what's to come. This past year has been an eye-opener for me and I'm hoping I can start forging my new perspective in more ways than one, sooner than later.
