Chicago has really been cooperating with the weather! The last day of summer ended on a high note (with humidity and a high of 77 degrees) while the first day of fall brought on cooler temps, crisp air but still plenty of sunshine! The weather has been nothing short of magical! These are the days where it is easy to whip out our cozy sweaters and favorite denim from our closet. The days where we are perfectly comfortable in one or two layers.
If you had to pick your favorite season for fashion, I bet most of you would say fall! There is something about the textures, colors and cozy fabrics that makes us all gravitate towards fall clothes. And with each fall season, I love flipping through catalogs and perusing on-line for the latest influx of chunky knits, suede boots and emerging trends. As we approach the end of the month, I thought I would tie in my current fall favorites into my Five Favorites Series!
As you browse some of the items below, make note of a couple of sales going on right now with these codes:
J. Crew: Save up to 40% off with code: SAVEMORE
Shopbop: Save 20% off your purchase under $500 and 25% off your purchase over $500 with code: STOCKUP18
One can never have enough! Truly! I love everything with a wood button detail so this one from J. Crew in grey is on heavy rotation right now. Walking into the Loft store over the weekend, I was pleasantly surprised with their sweater selection. I picked this one up and I love the speckled detail. Everlane has perfectly price pointed cashmere that I am excited to get my hands on. I also picked up these cashmere pieces here and here from J Crew last week and love the colors!
I am not quite ready for dark nail polish. My hands still have that summer glow and I think lighter looks better right now. This neutral color from Essie is perfect!
Isn’t it the best when wardrobe classics take center stage as trends for the season? Plaid blazers are having a major moment. In fact, you will see just about anything and everything covered in plaid this season!
Booties with a Western Edge
Whenever I think about the merging of western wear and runway fashion, I think of Ralph Lauren. The pillars of RL style will always be denim button downs, leather, suede and cowboy boots with everything. It’s only fitting then, as RL celebrates its 50th anniversary, that western wear is at the forefront of fashion this season, especially in a modern cowboy inspired boots!
The Fisherman Net Bag
There are some things that you feel must be put away after the summer season. Initially, I thought it would be my beloved fisherman net bag. Nope! Thank goodness a few designers have added texture and color to these easy breezy handbag beauties and they are absolutely perfect for fall!
