While it is still warm here, by mid-September my thoughts always turn towards autumn. Fond back-to-school shopping memories bubble up, with sweaters and corduroy and new jeans just begging for cooler weather to make their debut. Even though I’m not in school anymore, shopping this time of year has such a nice nostalgia element to it! I picked out a few new staples recently in honor of fall, and plan to incorporate them bit by bit as the weather allows. Honestly, though, can’t wait to wear them all together — latte in hand on a crisp fall afternoon.
I’m always a fan of leopard, so I’m excited to see it getting more traction again. These loafers are perfection. And the softest cardigan in a mossy green, an excellent pair of skinny jeans, and a cute backpack to schlep my things in day-to-day? Not a bad way to kick off fall, if I do say so myself.
(By the way, major kudos to Madewell. Not only have they been offering a wider range of sizes, but they are also currently offering samples in store to try on for sizes that are normally only offered online. Definitely a step in the right direction.)
