I recently went to a place in upstate NY called the Catskills, which was simply enchanting!

I love Fall so much (see my Instagram and you’ll see that I’m not kidding) and it’s truly a magical experience to see the world change colors.

I grew up in Australia so although we have seasons, they’re not as distinct as they are in the Northern Hemisphere and most of the trees stay green all year long!

Here’s what I wore on my Fall trip to the Catskills…



I find that experiencing seasons helps you realize just how quickly time really flies. For me, that’s amazing and intimidating at the same time because I always want to do and experience so much.

Since moving to NYC, my life has changed a lot and it has been a fun and wonderful ride. But now that 2014 is slowing coming to a close, it makes me want to sit down and reflect on what’s happened, what I’ve achieved and how I want to spend the remainder of this year.

I’m going to have a think about this and post my thoughts soon…so keep an eye out for it!



Now back to Fall fashion (yay!)….the other thing I love about Fall is that it’s a time to play with more layers and accessories because it’s a little colder but not too cold that I’m covered in layers of coats.

This Polo Ralph Lauren bag is one of my favorite bags. It’s big enough to hold a lot (books, notes, pens, make-up, ipad etc) and small enough that it’s not too heavy.


I found this view simply breathtaking. That little cloud just above the trees is actually fog!



What do you think of my new bangs? I got them because I wanted a little change to my hairstyle. It was a little scary as it’s the most hair I’ve cut to dedicate for my bangs!

 Do seasons have the same affect on you as it does for me? Does it make you think and reflect on the year and how time flies? Let me know your thoughts as I’d love to hear your experiences, whether they’re similar or the complete opposite!
