Fashion :: Pre-Fall Picks



Well hello there!  Before I get to today's post I wanted to sincerely thank each and every one of you for the beyond kind messages and advice you gave me yesterday.  I truly missed the blogging community and couldn't wipe the smile off my face all day as I continued to receive such sweet & thoughtful comments.  I've said it before but I'll say it again -- you guys are amazing and are the reason I want to keep up with this little blog.  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!

Although it took me awhile, I am now completely on-board with pre-fall fashion.  Before this week I couldn't even bare to think about cooler weather {thus totally passing on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale...fail}, but one cool day has gotten me very excited about bringing back layers, jewel tones, and luscious silks and cashmeres.  What is it about seasons that perpetually have us looking forward to the next?  However, as much as I love this leather, wool, and shearling bag and am excited to finally try a merlot lip, after the brutal winter we had this past year summer can stay as long as she wants in my book!

  9. One of the things I love about fall fashion are the deep, rich hues. That burgundy silk sleeveless top is so pretty! I could definitely see myself wearing that a number of ways!

  11. totally agree with you albertina. it's kind of bittersweet because while i absolutely love fall it is always so fleeting here in the midwest. before long i know we will have below freezing temps, and all i'll do is wish for summer to return :)

  12. i absolutely agree kate! and the best thing about those rich hues are you know they will always be in season. i also love that that jcrew looks very similar to an equipment version, for less than half the price!

  23. Isn't it funny that we always want the summer to last forever, but then we are also secretly ready for autumn and actually look forward to wearing chunky cosy sweaters and having hot drinks under a blanket? I'm like this! I'm on a hut for a thick white jumper and brown ankle boots. And yes - dark lips will also happen soon!
