fall outfit inspiration

Early Fall Preview.

UPDATE: I just added a new section of my shop with many of the fall finds below and a few others.

A Magpie reader summarized my aspirations for my early wardrobe best: “Feels like my 1996 wishlist all over again, in the best of ways.” I’m talking clogs and sweaters…with a couple of statement cardigans thrown in there, too, because I’m not yet ready to leave that feminine trend. I’m taking notes from the general vibe of the snapshot above — love the straight denim, slouchy dimensions of the sweater (is it ultra-coveted Khaite?! — look for less with this), and slip-on shoes.

P.S. “I think, in short, that good writing is about understanding the rules well enough to break them on occasion — but only certain ones, and only when handled thoughtfully and usually in the name of meaningful style. And I think the same thing in life, though I am nine times out of ten following the rules at any given moment. But that mish-mash of experiences set against the backdrop of childhood summers spent so close to nature and therefore, in my opinion, closer to the essence of life, abstracted from the trappings and complexities of modernity, well — they remain touchstones in my understanding of ethics, both of the linguistic and personal sort, and it startles me to think how often the two have converged in my life. Art and life and art and life in an endless mirroring of one another.” More here.

P.P.S. In case you’re not ready to think about fall. And even less ready.

P.P.P.S. My favorite beauty buys of 2020.

  1. So many cool finds here! I love that Moon River printed dress … and the sweater selections are so great. I need another sweater like a hole in the head (and I have NO extra space for them rn) but that Everlane option looks like a cozy dream! I actually own the Alex Mill button-back sweater in pale blue and it’s super cute, and you can pretty easily wear it as a cardigan as well.

    Also, I know I’ve commented this a hundred times before, but I can’t miss the opportunity to sing the praises of No. 6 clogs! I have a pair of boots that have been going strong for 8 or 9 years now (!!) and really want a new pair of mid-height slip-on clogs this year! Trying to decide between black or brown/neutral but may just have to get both. Haha!
