This autumn I will take a trip to the Michener Art Museum to view the exhibit From Philadelphia to Monaco: GRACE KELLY Beyond the Icon. The James A. Michener Art Museum is located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania just outside Philadelphia. The exhibit runs from October 28th through January 26th and features her personal artifacts including the iconic Hermes Kelly bag and couture dresses from her exquisite wardrobe. Other items featured include film clips, letters, photographs, awards and various souvenirs from her acting career. Grace Kelly's understated, elegant style and timeless beauty have had a strong influence on the Heidi Wynne collection.
This week in Wynne’s World, the designer shares her favorites for Fall
Isabelle Wrap in Bright Plum This is my favorite new wrap for fall. I love how rich and saturated the color is and it brightens up my wardrobe.
Rag & Bone Denim Jacket I found the perfect Rag & Bone denim jacket on shopbop and will wear it almost every day until coat season.
Lauren Oversized V-Neck So soft and cozy and perfect for those crisp fall days when you just want to be warm and comfortable.
Pencil Skirts and Cashmere For work, my fall uniform is a pencil skirt and a cashmere sweater. I have two black pencil skirts from Narciso Rodriguez which I will pair with my Alexandra crewneck in camel, heather grey, burgundy and black.
Rodin Olio Lusso Lip Balm
My friend Danielle recommended the Rodin Olio Lusso lip balm and now I can’t live without it. My lips feel so soft and it will keep them hydrated when the colder weather hits.
Central Park This is my second home during the fall. I love going for a long walk with my dog or an early morning run on a cool fall day.
Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work
For fall reading material, I just ordered Heather Clawson’s book Habitually Chic: Creativity at Work. Having a beautiful work space that inspires you is one of the best ways to stay motivated. My autumn project is to redecorate my home office. Heather is epitome of chic and the master of providing inspiration.

WARDROBE STAPLE: Right now it is the Caroline jean in cropped white denim. I also can’t live without the Isabelle cashmere wrap in camel.
SUMMER MUST HAVE: The Rachel cotton tank in white. It is gently ribbed, has a nice slim fit and is longer than most tanks. The Avery striped lightweight cashmere boatneck in navy/white is perfect for cooler summer days.

CURRENTLY READING: Van Gogh The Life. It was a gift from my friend Jelena and signed by the authors, Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith. I’m also reading another incredible book, The Victory Lab by Sasha Issenberg, which explores the inner workings of political campaigns.
