I am in love with the Roslyn monogrammed coated canvas tote by Tory Burch. In shades of gorgeous cobalt, camel and navy this tote is the perfect update for your Fall wardrobe. It is secured by an internal zip fastening and snap at the top, as well as interior pockets for your important small items.
Why not get your own monogram added for an extra touch of preppiness?

We're a big fan and of admirer of Design Darling, the fantastic online store owned by Mackenzie Horan.
Mackenzie is a great role model for those looking to create similar online businesses- check out why she decided to be an online boutique owner!
"I started the boutique as an extension of my blog, where I write about fashion and interiors true to my classic-with-a-twist aesthetic. I had always wanted to start my own business so owning an online boutique has been a dream come true! I carry home decor, jewelry, and monogrammed gifts and spend the bulk of my days writing blog posts, packing orders, and scouting new products. It's not easy being a one-woman show but I'm so blessed to wake up and do what I love each and every day!"

The Huffington Post recently released a handy color guide to the First Lady's outfits over the past four years. Whilst it is safe to say that black and white are clear winners, Mrs Obama's embrace of many different hues has set the fashion world alight and rewritten the narrative on First Lady fashion.

I recently read this great article on The Levo League encouraging individuals to press the reset button continuing their professional development this Fall.
Continuing to build on your skills, as well as embracing new ones is particular in all professional fields. I sign up for as many relevant and interesting training sessions available at work, and have recently taken on new commitments in my spare time.
It is refreshing to try something new, opening our minds to skills we may not have previously considered. So if your employer offers courses find out more, or research what your local community has to offer. Turn over a new leaf this Fall!
Moderating duties for the four presidential and vice presidential debates this year will be evenly split between male and female journalists for the first time, it was announced by the Commission on Presidential Debates this week.
The moderators will be Jim Lehrer of PBS, Candy Crowley of CNN, Bob Schieffer of CBS and Martha Raddatz of ABC.
The debates have come under scrutiny for the lack of female moderators in recent weeks, with three sixteen year old girls from New Jersey delivering a successful online petition to the Commission in Washington DC to argue for change.
The format for the first debate has been re-invented with opportunities for President Obama and Mitt Romney to question each other directly.
Lehrer will host the first debate on October 3rd, followed by Crowley on on October 16th. Raddatz will moderate the vice-presidential debate on October 11th. The last debate will be moderated by Schieffer on October 22nd.
