Fall Favorite: Lollia – When The Leaves Turn No. 85

◍◍◍

Lollia’s When the Leaves Turn No. 85 candle is the perfect scent for season’s change. Truly redolent of Fall, this candle fills the air with nostalgia of time spent jumping into a pile of freshly fallen leaves.

Lollia’s candles are some of my favorite. High-quality and trustworthy, the aroma is always constant and strong. The candles burn evenly and seem to last forever. Great last minute gift idea, the packaging is simple and elegant.

Description: A flickering flame to reminisce on simple pleasures not to be forgotten. 85 When the Leaves Turn lends a Summer glow that gives way to fiery hues, leaving the aura of crackling leaves and teakwood filling the air with the rumor of Fall.

  • Top notes of green tulip and water hyacinth.
  • Middle notes of cut greens, bamboo, and sage.
  • Bottom notes of muguet (Lilly of the Valley) and teak

Trench Time: Club Monaco Harper Trench

✺✺✺

There are a few wardrobe staples that every girl should splurge on and a trench coat is one of them. Synonymous with Fall, a trench coat is a classic coat that can be worn again and again, season after season, year after year.

Each season, the classic silhouette is updated to suit upcoming trends; cropped, long, textured, printed, metallic. I am a big believer of – if it ain’t broke… The classic design has been around since World War I and is still going strong.

Two qualities of my perfect trench coat are classic in design and beautifully tailored. My current favorite is the Harper Trench by Club Monaco. It features the classic double-breasted style with button closure and belted sleeve hem. The fit is strong but feminine and very flattering.

A trench coat is a versatile fashion piece that can be worn with both light and heavy layers. Rain or shine the trench coat is a classic and chic must-have.
