I’m back in the city for a few days—to take the dog to the vet, get my roots done, see some friends, stuff like that. And also to retrieve warmer clothes, as I’m planning to stay out in Sag Harbor through October and maybe beyond. Closet space is limited in my tiny bedroom out there, so I brought the bare minimum of summer clothes with me, and plan to do the same with fall pieces. I actually think I’m happier when I have fewer options in that respect. Like everyone else, comfort is a priority for me these days, so I’ll start out by packing a couple of oversize cashmere sweaters like this one, and this cheaper one too.
This is a sweatshirt that reads like a sweater and is therefore perfect for right now. I also like the deep V-neck.
I like silk blouses when it gets cooler, because they’re so good for layering (and I don’t dry clean them often; instead, I steam them and then let them air out). This one comes in about a kajillion colorways, but I like this snappy striped one.
A couple of long-sleeved tees like this roomy striped one will definitely be making it into the suitcase.
I like that these jeans have a higher waist and also a bit of stretch, and I’m a fan of the cropped length.
These stretch jersey pants are at the top of my must-buy list—they look like a nice trouser/sweatpant hybrid. They also come in grey (and are available in more sizes in that color). I’m also interested in these slightly cheaper Lululemon pants.
Plaid jackets are everywhere this season, and I plan on wearing one that I purchased on my trip to L.A. right before the world shut down. I also quite like this one.
When it comes to hoodies, I’m all about Uniqlo these days. This one is super, super soft (and runs a bit small, so you might want to size up).
I’ll be bringing sneakers with me too, of course, and own so many I couldn’t possibly justify the purchase of another pair. But if I could, I’d go for these, because the color combination is just aces.
These clogs are just $98—far cheaper than the No. 6 ones I typically go for—and they add a nice bit of height.
There’s not a lot of color here, I know, so I might throw in a bright scarf like this one.
