hellooo, September. hello, favorite time of year!
wardrobe planning this season is going to be both focused and generalized, mostly because i'm also eagerly anticipating the Uniqlo x Lemaire collection next month. so glad to see one of my favorite designers lend his elegantly minimalist approach to such an accessible price point. the knits in particular look wonderfully cozy and versatile.
on the list:
PS1 bag in burgundy // i had a PS1 in tobacco suede a few years ago, but sold it in a round of closet editing. now i'm feeling a dollop of seller's regret. the burgundy they have this season looks stunning with the silver hardware.
those skinny overalls // yes, i was dubious at first, but after seeing Erica and Carmen rock the look, i'm all in.
a transitional weather cardigan or two // love the drape and silky knit.
chan luu silk-cashmere shawl // when it comes to a trusty essential, another color is always a good idea :)
giant acne wool scarf // see above. something to add to my seasonal scarves guide!
a lightweight down vest // i got the fitted jacket version last year and lived in it all winter long. this is perfect as a transitional seasons/layering piece.
classic blue shirting // looking to add one or two blue variations on the classic shirting this season.
silk printed blouse // love browsing the Outnet for deals on equipment silks – always a great selection.
striped print sweatshirt // on sale, and something about this sail print reminds me of vintage travel brochures. love.
mansur gavriel tote // (reviewed here) the cammello leather is patina-ing nicely. love how lightweight it is.
l.l.bean cream cotton fisherman's sweater // picked this up on my recent trip to Maine. ready for chillier fall days!
- Black Violin, this amazing classical/hip-hop string duo, and their new album, 'Stereotypes'.
- Oliver Sacks – what a lasting example of humanity, curiosity, and kindness. his last essay for the New Yorker is just simply and beautifully written. Atul Gawande's tribute to his mentor and friend is equally lovely, and worth a read.
