Fall fashion And A Tea Of The Month

With the temperatures taking a dip, it's time for sweaters, scarves and boots to replace linen capri pants, summer dresses, and sandals. It's no secret that I love fall and winter clothing and relish this changing of seasonal attire.  I delight in adding new pieces to tried and true standbys in the back of the wardrobe. As a matter of fact, I got a jump on this a couple of weeks ago with some new brown Equestrian boots.

As I continue to look for key pieces and missing elements, I think of the master of  fall fashion, Ralph Lauren. Does anyone do it better?  Just take a look at the new fall line below.  :)

There's a certain undeniable magic in the air when October rolls around. Being a child of Autumn, I marvel at the rapidly changing hues from deep green to russet, gold, and crimson. Look how perfectly these colors compliment the Ralph Lauren collection above. Marvelous!

Beginning with the month of October, and as a welcome of sorts to the birth of this next season, the Tea Society blog will feature a Tea of the month. This month's featured tea is one that is perfect for fall because of it's comforting taste and hypnotic aroma of heavenly bergamot. I'm speaking of  none other than the favorite tea of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.  Earl Grey, of course.  However, I am not recommending just any brew of Earl Grey. The one that I adore is blended by Twinings. I have sampled countless loose leaf and bag varieties of Earl Grey over the years and though I have tasted some very fine blends, I always seem to come back to Twinings. I suppose you could say that Twinings is to Earl Grey what Ralph Lauren is to fall fashion...Hum...That just might be my new mantra...

I'll leave you with this suggestion: For this October, add a new scarf to your fall wardrobe, and make sure your pantries and cupboards are stocked with loose leaf and tea bag varieties of Earl Grey. Cheers!

Me, too. There's a Ralph Lauren store about an hour from here down in Virginia. I need to go and check that out.

My favorite tea, too.

Did you notice that one of the RL models is sporting a Bernese Mountain Dog by his side? I saw one in a poster in a store...and one in a brochure that came in the mail!

Dear Rebecca,

Gee, long scarves are still in and Earl Grey is never out. A good combination.

Marnie, I believe I saw that picture on the RL facebook page. Love it!
