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.
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.
