The transition between summer and fall is never an easy one, but the hardest thing about the transition for me is always shopping. The weather is still nice, but at the end of August and the beginning of September, you can’t buy “summer” clothes anymore. You have to start buying darker colored shirts, dresses that cover more skin, and BOOTS. No more sandals, no more bright colors, no more beach cover ups. It’s over guys. IT’S ALL OVER.

But this doesn’t mean from here on out until NEXT summer your wardrobe has to be dull. Because it doesn’t! And what better way to keep your closet happy than adding a little sparkle? THERE IS NO BETTER WAY. This is why, just like Will Ferrell needed more cowbell, you and I need MORE SPARKLE.

Here are some ~*SpArKlY*~ items I neeeeeeeeeed to get my hands on now for the upcoming season!


Tildon – Geo Sequin Shift Dress (Available at Nordstrom)




DKNY Sequin Sleeve Pullover (Available at Bloomingdales)



BC Footwear Shoes, Eager Beaver Metallic Bootie (Available at Francesca’s)



Bobbi Brown – Sparkle Eye Shadow in Champagne Gold (Available at Sephora)

I can’t get enough of sparkly gold eye shadow. Neutral yet still fun!



OPI’s “Rose of Light”



JCrew’s Melody Necklace
