Slowly but surely, retailers are trotting out fall clothes, and I’m not entirely ready to look at them yet (are you? I’m curious) but I did go for this cashmere wrap sweater, which is always so flattering, and perfect for turning a summer dress into something more acceptable to wear once cooler weather hits.
I also went for these oval hoops, which are such a cool shape, and which to me look a lot pricier than they are.
I’m also really digging these trousers, which feel a touch more dressed up than jeans but still nicely casual.
A denim skirt with a pretty perfect wash, a decent amount of stretch, and a nice high waist.
I feel like this super-cute wallet clutch would really spiff up the inside of my bag.
The leopard print on this silk skirt is so graphic, and I really like the green.
There are even deeper markdowns over at Nili Lotan than there were the last time I checked in, and they’re well worth checking out; this peasant top is a really, really good red, and it’s got a quite subtle plaid pattern going on as well.
I adore fall clothes! But I’m not ready either – they will likely not get worn until at least October so this is pretty unsatisfying. Always fun to ponder the matter though. The trousers look great! The material looks thicker so my butt might stand a chance.
SO not ready to look at fall clothes in million degree heat! I bought a very similar, but cheaper, version of the red peasant blouse from Emerson Fry and received compliments.
Fall is a somewhat abstract idea here in the desert southwest, but I do love the idea of it. Looking forward to wearing a light layer without overheating. That should happen around late October.
Here at 8,200 feet in the Rocky Mountains, the first hint of crisp fall air arrives early morning in mid-August, right around my birthday. That’s when I round up a girlfriend and meet in the city to lunch and touch all the cashmere. One of my favorite annual rituals.
It’s too early to think about fall! And I do not appreciate the cashmere pre-fall I am seeing.
Here in LA it won’t get cool until Halloween. Although, the weather lately has been so bizarre, who knows? I could end up dragging out the cashmere in September, which is traditionally the hottest month.
I am so ready for Fall with 7-8 weeks of Summer left in the south. That cashmere sweater is an ideal piece. I can think of many use for it in Oct-Nov.
I bought the red blouse last week when I sent you the sale psa, lol. The red is even better than it looks, if that were possible. It’s not quite bright, not quite brick. (Does that make sense?)
I’m not ready to wear fall/winter clothes yet, but I regularly buy out of season. It’s a great way to find things on sale. I’d had an itch for white x-country skiing pants for a while, so when a pair of white i.am.gia athletic pants popped up on my screen in June, I grabbed them. Ditto a heavy wool Dsquared sweater that was slashed to 75% off in April. I probably won’t wear either till next December, but I’m sure I’ll be happy then that I got them. Although I doubt I’d use it for a while that cashmere wrap sweater calls to me. It’s a great, classic piece.
I can’t even think about wearing fall clothes when it’s so hot: just the thought of trying them on makes my skin crawl!
Not ready for fall!! Do love the red blouse and the hoops.
Over here (in Germany) fall fashion arrives in June. So when the weather is cold and rainy and you bemoan that summer is lost yet again, looking at coats and sweaters depresses me even further, because summer is lost and won’t come this year … and when summer does come, it’s way too hot to think of coats and sweaters. That said, that is a very nice cashmere sweater.
I’m not ready for fall yet – summer weather just arrived in mid-June – but I did buy a cashmere sweater on impulse last week. I enjoy browsing bright-colored clothing for fall (love the green leopard skirt, red blouse, and Clare V pouch), but I’m not quite ready for burgundy, black, rust, and brown.
