If being in New York this wasn’t exciting enough, a very fun thing happened yesterday. The latest issue of Matchbook Magazine was released and I’m humbled to be their September guest editor! Have you seen it yet?? Two of my favorite designers, Emily Current and Meritt Elliott are the cover stars.

When Matchbook asked me what I’d like to pick as a September-centric theme, my favorite quote about this time of year immediately sprang to mind:

“Don’t you just love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly-sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address” – Joe Fox {as penned by icon Nora Ephron}
It’s quite fitting, given where I currently find myself, right? I even crossed paths with Meg Ryan herself yesterday!! She’s still just as cute as ever. But back to the feature.
Rather than a traditional take a standard approach to back to school style, I decided to put a modern glam spin on the ultimate dream office.

I would love to pull up to a clean modern desk like the Delwyn from Anthropologie. The wood-tipped iron legs and clean pine top provide a light and fresh foundation for an office. Layering it with gilded accessories would totally inspire the return of the lost art of letter writing.

I’m also excited to add a little sparkle to my fall wardrobe and the JCrew chevron sequin teeStella McCartney brocade pumps or the Kate Spade Pencil Necklace would do the trick quite nicely!

Are you excited to welcome a new season luvies? I’m going to commit to writing at least one piece of snail mail a week to properly mark the occasion. You with me?!

What do you think?
