While the calendar has flipped to September, it is still in the high 80s here in DC so it is a little hard to think about bundling up in a cashmere sweater but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about what I might like for fall.
And, truth be told, and I can’t believe I am about to write this, but I haven’t seen much so far that has impressed me so I am taking it as a sign that I should be shopping my closet.
I will say, one thing I do love is the idea of jacket layering. The only picture I could find was the red coat JCrew one above. I have a huge addiction to buying coats and jackets, however, they all seem to be about the same weight, light and not really warm so I like the idea of layering a jean jacket underneath, especially if it creates a contrast between dressy and casual.
The other idea I like this fall is investing in basics. A simple yet beautifully cut blazer like the Rag and Bone one + a statement piece like the Tiffany Bracelet or the Hermes necklace – elegant, understated and yet stunning!
So, here are a few things I found and love for various reason. Definitely get samples of the lip serum and polish next time you are at Sephora and for glowing skin, I love this new Armani mask.
Let me know what’s on the top of your must have list for fall.
Rebecca Minkoff This is a great, classic bag that will never go out of style. It is also an easy way to add velvet into your wardrobe.
Ouai Memory Mist If you like a hairspray that keeps its hold but doesn’t make your hair stiff, this is the product for you!
Hermes Necklace (Tiffany has a beaded chain that is in their recent campaigns that has a beautiful toggle clasp. It is a nice less expensive version of the Hermes piece if you like that look but want to spend less. I can’t find it on the website but the have it in the stores. I think it was $325.00)
Chanel Large Zip Shopping Bag I always need at least one bag that I can carry my notebook in.
Rag and Bone Jacket This is a great way to get the polished blazer look but with the ease and comfort of a sweater. It is lightweight and perfect for travel.
Tiffany ID Bracelet I wore this out of the store I loved it so much!
