Her Umbrella Premiere Issue Fall 2015

Her Umbrella is a women's digital, lifestyle magazine dedicated to creating a life outside the lines. Published quarterly during the changing of the seasons, you'll find a bohemian, free-spirited style woven throughout its pages. Every woman has an umbrella with a variety of likes, dislikes, stories and memories hidden underneath. And we're looking to uncover them. Our premiere issue features bigger contributor highlights, a variety of topics - intertwined without rhyme or reason. We've nixed the rules and forewent table of contents and the like to be a freer, more unmatched way of exploring. It's not perfect but it's an inspirational start to a dream. Enjoy!


3 FORAUTUMN SARASTRAUSS Grabyour scarf andyour mugfilledwithwarm, Earl Greyandenjoythebeautyof theseason. Changing leaves. Pumpkin spice lattes. Sweaters. Apple-picking. Autumn always feels like a fresh start because the air is crisper and kids are going back to school. Allow Sara to show you why she swoons over fall, as if the season were Mr. Darcy himself, in three fall-inspired outfits! Apple-Picking There's no shortage of pumpkin-flavored foods and I like hunting for the best pumpkin in the patch, but it doesn't compare to apple-picking. Trying every kind of apple in the orchard, collecting more than you need, and then sharing the wealth with family and friends in the hopes that they'll make you a warm, fruit-filled pie. I was inspired by the apples themselves, so with a gray dress as a base I added a bright red cardigan, a turquoise, beaded belt, a blue floral scarf and brown wedges.

Creamy Tea Don't get me wrong, I love iced coffee and iced tea, but there's something magical about a steaming cup of hot chai to warm you up when there's a chill in the air. Especially when that cup of tea is sitting next to a good book in a cute coffee shop. I put together an outfit that's reminiscent of milky coffee and tea: a white scarf, a light taupe blouse, jeans, and black ankle-strap flats. And don't forget your mug! Falling Leaves Brown to yellow to orange to red. The changing leaves are stunning, and I find myself paying more attention to the trees than the road when I drive during the autumn months. If you're not ready to give up your summer brights, this is a great summer-to-fall transition outfit: pair an olive green jacket with a bright yellow dress and taupe booties.
