WOO HOO! WEEKLY WHISTLE TIME *wink*

With summer apparel going on sale, and pre-fall frocks hitting the racks, I cannot get fall off the brain–cooler temps, changing leaves, and sweaters galore! Ah…the pre-season cravings are extra strong today *wink*

So, to satisfy my wishing for fall, this week’s Weekly Whistle ensemble is all about stately styling with bold pre-fall brights and patterns! Oh, this week’s outfit of the week is a lovely combo of summer sweetness and fall fabulousness *GASP* It’s a perfect summer-to-fall transition look! Oh, my goodness! I am so excited. I can’t stop babbling *wink*

Hey, two months is not too far in advance to start blowing out the candles wishing for fashionable birthday presents!

Looking for a new way to add some pizazz to my summer-to-fall transition makeup, I stopped by the Lancôme counter where MUA Melissa Atkinson made me look like I was ready to hit the runway at New York Fashion Week! I absolutely love the color combination on my eyes–the bright blue liquid eyeliner is a true wow-factor that isn’t too overpowering. Stop by the Lancôme counter at Belk The Summit in Birmingham, Alabama to get dolled up just like the VIP…or get the wonderful makeup artists to create you your own snazzy Fall 2013 makeup look!
