Too soon to think Autumn, even though it is actually almost around the corner. But in the fashion world, Autumn attire is long planned and introduced. So for that, here is my favorite ensemble, inspired by the beautiful colors of fall time in Paris.

I cannot get enough of the color red in fashion, so I am always looking for ways to incorporate the hue in an ensemble.

Back in the 90′s I wore red lipstick and red nail polish, but since Sex In The City aired on television, we, I mean women over 40 have evolved along with the cast in choosing lighter shades of pink and nude to “cover up our age”
Lately however, I envy the red, which is back in fashion (perhaps silently it never left) and wonder if I can still support the look. Any comments from the over 40 crowd?
Since we have been experiencing Spring like weather here in San Francisco, it has become truly challenging to dress for the weather since at the crack of dawn, when I get ready for work, it’s 32degrees and by lunch time it’s 65degrees and then by the evening it dips back down to the 30s again, I am at a loss with my business casual attire.
The only saving grace, living in a city like San Francisco, is that most women here have transition clothes for the ever changing weather, which is ok to wear in winter, spring to summer and fall. So with that said, I have put together some things from my closet which I consider transition clothes from Winter to Spring.

2. Dolce Gabana Cotton blend shirt USD325 (Staple)
3. Calvin Cline Knit V-Neck Cardigan 675 (spring)

5. Stella McCartney Alyssa Wool-twill Skirt USD585 (Staple)
