Personal Style: The Sometimes-a-Socialite Foolproof Outfit...

There is no slow social season in Dallas, but this end of summer meets early fall time is especially popular. Why? Because we can finally venture outside again without fear of vaporizing in the sweltering heat. 

Making the shift from summer soirees to fall events is easy in theory, so long as a few unwritten rules are followed. But the truth is, after a long hot summer you often discover the age old "nothing to wear" dilemma that women universally face. What's a girl to do? Quickly grab a few miracle workers to make dressing up easy and effortless.

Start with: the solid colored dress rules, ladies! Every event in town is loaded with photogs and friends clicking away and that amazing patterned dress you adore can now never, ever be seen again. Trust me on this: solids rule the day (and night). 

Next, a glamorous clutch will hold all of your essentials and add much needed "wow" to the look. Those that come with an optional strap score big points for versatility. And of course, I favor those with luxe metallic finishes and gorgeous hardware. 

Jewelry is next and it's all about layers of rings right now. While I'm known to be a bracelet lover, I'm loving this switch to fabulous fingers. Try keeping it fun with a mixture of styles and plenty of sparkle and don't forget to schedule your mani/pedi in time as all eyes will be on your delicate digits. 

Shoes, shoes, shoes. This is truly the moment of the "it" shoe, so I encourage you to bring out your favorites for those fabulous after dark events. While Valentino is the name of the game, there are stunning options everywhere and many brands I'm loving. Stuart Weitzman makes these delicate strappy rose beauties that have stolen my heart. 

Aside from your blowout and flawless makeup, all that's left is a spritz of your signature scent. I'm finding my way back into the loving arms of Miss Dior for fall. The original formula has been modified, but it still works for me in cooler months. Use judiciously as it has staying power. One fine mist is all that's needed to keep it subtle and longlasting. 

Now... fire up that Uber app and get rolling out on the town. There are events to be attended and friends to see. Ciao!
