Style: Two Fall Essentials

Fall Essentials

Fall is by far my favorite season – the crisp air, change of leaves, and sunsets earlier and earlier I love getting nestled in at home for the night. We’ve had a pretty mild fall here in San Francisco with our Indian Summer lingering for quite some time – no layers have been required. Over the past week the weather has changed, it’s finally sweater weather. With the leaves slowly turning I’m ready to break out my fall clothes. I’ve been counting down the days for fall to make it’s appearance.

Another reason I love this time of year is the fashion. There is nothing I love more than getting a few new staple pieces that will carry me through the winter months. I was just talking to Eric last night about how I go shopping maybe once every quarter and purchase three or four essentials that I know I can wear for the months to come.

No layers have been required quite yet, but two of my favorite pieces this season have been this cashmere henley and D’Orsay black leather flats from Jenni Kayne. The henley with it’s classic style, is probably a piece I want to grab out of my closet every single morning. 

The D’Orsay flats have been on my wish list for years. I’ve always been a flats gal – easy to run to meetings in and transition from work/life to mom/life. They are comfortable so that I can wear them all day long and easy to have on while chasing Jackson around the park. Their elegance are what make them special.

Fall Essentials

I cannot wait for the fall days to get cooler so that I can add layers to my outfits but in the meantime, I’ll be happy wearing this pairing. Do you have any fall essentials you are loving that are becoming staples? I’ll be sharing more fall outfits in the next few weeks.

Bringing Nature to the Table this Fall

Bringing Nature to the Table - Sacramento Street Bringing Nature to the Table - Sacramento Street

Every year I always look forward to fall arriving. Don’t get me wrong – I love every minute of the long days of summer, but as the days get shorter and there is a crispness in the air, I start turning my focus inward to our home.

Most Sunday mornings my family and I walk to our local farmer’s market for fresh fruits and vegetables. With the change of season we started to see apples making it to the market. A few weekends ago we decided to switch it up a bit and go to an apple orchard instead. Bringing home a crate of apples motivated me to create a new tabletop for my dining room that celebrates the arrival of the new season.

I teamed up with Target Style to use their new collection of fall inspired items for the table. When I think of fall I have images of richer tones, more texture, and definitely delicious baking from the bounty of apples.  I knew I wanted to find copper and metal tones along with wicker and wood to warm up my dining room.  I found more than I could ever have hoped for – pounded metal bowls and vases, plates and bowls with a muted copper rim, a wooden bowl to display the apple crisp, and gold votives to light up the table.  I usually love all-white flowers, but in the spirit of autumn I chose deep maroon flowers, hops, branches with small red berries and a few white flowers.

The result had me giddy for the season that is upon us in a few short days. In our On the Menu post tomorrow Amanda will share her delicious apple crisp recipe that was inspired by this tabletop. It will definitely help you to bring in the new fall season.

8 Ways to Switch Things Up at Home This Fall

Living Room

Transitioning your home from summer to fall is one of my favorite activities. As the light begins to change and there is a slight crispness to the air, it’s time to think about making your abode a warm and cozy place to retreat to. Autumn is a time when we all begin to spend a bit more time indoors. The days are slowly getting shorter and our home is often our retreat. This is a good time to add warm touches that help us to embrace the change outside. One can burn candles; have baskets with throws ready to serve as a sanctuary where you can curl up with your favorite book. By changing a few key elements, your home will be a welcome place for you when you get home from a busy day.

World Market - Fall Picks

There are 8 items from World Market you might consider when preparing your house for the change of seasons:

Lighting. Consider adding a floor lamp or table lamp to add additional light to a room. Lighting is key to a room being used!

Bookends. I can’t get enough of theses petrified wood bookends. They add depth and beauty to any room.

Candles. As there is less light outside, bring the light inside. Candles create an elegant and inviting atmosphere and they signal a change of seasons.

Side Tables. This is something you make not think to switch out but it can make all the difference when refreshing a space. Side tables are be swapped around all year round, why not add a new one to place your coffee on every morning.

Throws. As the weather changes to cooler evenings, having comfortable throws to crawl into can be a comforting and practical addition.

Seating. As summer turns to fall, consider a changing your sofa. There is nothing better then a comfy sofa you don’t want to leave. If you’ve been thinking about updating yours now is the time since you’ll be sending more time indoors.

Throw pillows. There is no quicker way to update and change a room for the season. You can change the mood of the room with a change of throw pillows.

Baskets. Having a variety of baskets is a practical and aesthetically pleasing way to store things. You could even place your new throws in them.

Fall is my favorite season – I can’t wait to do a few of these seasonal changes to my home as well.

Layer It: Bundle Up

Layer It : Bundle Up | Sacramento Street

One, Two, Three, Four, Five (from left to right)

It’s finally time to bundle up in layers! We’ve been graced with a little bit of “colder” weather, which means it might just be time to put away my sandals and get out all of my trusty boots. I’ve heard from a few friends across the country that the weather is cooling down everywhere – from Chicago, to New York, to snow in Minneapolis. With this drop in weather I wanted to give all of your a little inspiration for layering up!

Layer It : Bundle Up

You really can’t go wrong when you pair black and gray together. They are my staple colors for fall – year in and year out. All of these items have been on my wish list but with our temps staying in the 70’s, until now, I haven’t had much cold weather buying to do. This Woolrich Parka is a favorite of mine – I brought it with me to Alaska and it kept me nice and cozy. Pair it with a sleek knee-high boot and you are good to go when walking to work. Do you have any favorites you love to bundle up in?

Four Favorites: Hatch Collection

Four Favorites : Hatch | Sacramento Street

As many of you know from this baby bump post, I’ve got quite an obsession with Hatch Collection. It’s my go-to brand for maternity-wear. The clean lines and classic pieces all have a little something special to them that I haven’t been able to find in another brand. Plus, I know I’ll be wearing most of the pieces I have well after baby Flemming arrives.

With that being said, there were a few pieces I’m loving that I didn’t feature that I wanted to share with all of you – and friends that aren’t pregnant, you can totally wear them too! Add this grey Turtleneck Dress to your closet since the days are getting cooler or the Montaigne Coat that is the perfect shape for layering on top of cozy knits. Obsessed with stripes as much as me? This Voyage Tunic is a favorite of mine. Pop over to Hatch Collection to get a glimpse into their beautiful fall collection.
