the September issue this year: add key/special pieces to amplify and complement wardrobe foundations.
 a tailored topcoat // i've long admired the sleek, clean lines of this gentleman's classic. such a perfect gentlewomanly adaptation!
 long olive parka (see other options here) // the affordable everyday hero piece of the season. i need something warmer than my unlined utility jacket but not as heavy as my winter parka; this is just the ticket.
 a cozy cardigan/wrap // i've never thought of myself as a 'poncho' person per se, but this wrap looks so perfect for layering, and lazy weekends...
 leather-look leggings // so comfy for everyday and travel, and as stylish holiday feasting pants!
 black slouch trousers // experimenting with a slightly different trouser silhouette this season.
 a standout f/w dressy/dress // a friend's upcoming fall wedding has me completely crushing over this gorgeous printed tunic-y option by Marni. i'd been rotating between a few dresses for special occasions, so it feels like it's time for an update. such an unusual shape and so many styling possibilties!
 grey chunky-knit sweater // it's not fall without a properly cozy sweater. off-duty comfort.
 short-sleeve sweatshirts // ideal for transitional layering.
thoughts on this season:
- style inspirations this season: Emmanuelle Alt, Liu Wen, Clémence Poésy.
- main objective for fall: add some essential neutral pieces with one or two colorful special finds.
- raw denim project: still ongoing after a mini hiatus during the summer. stay tuned for a new update soon.
