Bring on the sweaters

One of my favorite parts about fall is the fun in wearing sweaters. The beauty of sweaters is that a baggy one can disguise an off day while ensuring you still look stylish and others are essential for layering, such as cardigans, on those days where you just don't know what to expect from the weather.

A common fabric used in sweaters is wool. Yes, it can keep you warm, but if you are like me, it can be irritating to wear. This is where Adea becomes a must-have.

Homemade Pumpkin spiced marshmallows

Ok, we can't resist any longer. We have to share something pumpkin-flavored and delicious. Instead of going with a latte or some sort of baked goodie, we went with homemade marshmallows. Once you try a homemade marshmallow, you'll never go back. This version, sprinkled with a bit of pumpkin spice, is to die for!

That old black magic

I think we all love the color black – especially those of us who live in New York. Several years ago, when I was at a departure gate in LAX for a red-eye flight back to New York, I suddenly realized that every single passenger waiting to board was wearing black.

Why this fascination with the color black?

Fall for white this fall

Earlier this month, I shared some tips on wearing white after Labor Day by leveraging Adea's versatile camisoles (the post can be found here). Now, I'd like to offer some ideas on how to wear some of Adea's layering tops, especially as the temperatures begin to fall.
