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.
Favorite Early Fall Sweaters + Tops.
VERY DRAWN TO THIS LONGLINE STRIPED CARDI FROM MAJE (ON SALE)
I NEED THIS BAUBLE CARDIGAN! GREAT, LUXE, VERSATILE COLOR

THIS CHUNKY PASTEL STRIPE IS SO GOOD! (AND UNDER $70)

FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT IN NO. 6 BECAUSE I WORE THEIR CLOG BOOTS BASICALLY EVERY DAY LAST WINTER — SO WARM, SO CHIC, AND HIGHLY DURABLE
HOWEVER, I AM FEELING A PULL TOWARDS FABRITZIO VITI’S MORE WHIMSICAL PAIRS

SERIOUSLY EYEING THIS CIAO LUCIA — LOVE THE RUST/ORANGE PATTERN
SIMPLE POPOVER DRESS — WOULD LOOK GREAT WITH POINTED TOE FLAT
THIS WOULD BE SO PRETTY FOR AN EARLY FALL WEDDING

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