September is potentially my favourite month. To me, it always seems like a new beginning; a fresh start, even more so than January. The air gets crisp, Vogue is the size of a phone book and I get to wear layers again.
Here are my current September essentials:
THE CLOUD SHIRT
I call it this because it is kind of like wearing a cloud… in my mind anyways. It’s soft, fluffy and a perfect shade of stark white. The texture is divine and really sets it a part from your standard, run of the mill white tops. At this point, I think it goes without saying… white after labour day? Yes, yes, yes.

THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE OF VOGUE
Thank you Anna Wintour for putting modern day super models on the cover.
It’s a refreshing change and almost makes up for the April cover.
I am a really choosey person when it comes to pens and these are simply the best. They come in fun colours (the pens themselves, not the ink, the ink is black, which is also a strange requirement I have when it comes to writing utensils) and they write like a dream.
ADORABLE NEW STATIONARY
Chapters had all of this cute stationary and cards on sale and in a weak moment I bought these, and these, and these, and these… and these for my sister.
I am really loving to send snail mail these days. If you want some, send me your address. (I’m completely serious, I will send you mail. Email me your info here.)
O.P.I. NAIL POLISH & LAVENDER OIL
Current favourite O.P.I. colour: My Very First Knockwurst (from the Germany Collection).
and I’m loving a little bit of lavender oil on my pillow at night, so soothing.
COCOALAND LOT 100 GUMMY CANDIES
These are SO random and so amazing. You can find them at most Asian grocery stores for like, $2 a bag. The blackcurrant and mango ones are my favourite.
Now, go put on a fur scarf and have a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte.
