My September Vogue arrived yesterday. It is a beast. I was going to sit and read it while Poppy does her hour long hip hop class today, but I thought I might put my back out carrying it in my bag. Anyway it got me thinking about cooler weather and snuggling up in some cosy knits and coats. I cannot wait!
I’ve already started a wish list, and I am really trying to be good until it does get cooler, so I can make better, more informed choices based on what is in stores at the end of next month.
For now here are my key picks:
The Stuart Weitzman 50/50 is twenty years old and to celebrate they have introduced new colors. I adore this grey suede pair.
I have the Sam Edelman Alvin in leopard and plain black pony hair and this year I want to add this gorgeous saddle print to my collection.
I don’t own a trench and I need one. I think they are perfect for the milder winters we have here – and my favorite so far for color and length is this Zara short trench.
I am in need of a new, more fashionable puffer coat. My Patagonia one is great – but a little too practical and outdoorsy – if that makes sense. I adore the color of this Zara short puffer.
As for knitwear Zara is coming up trumps again. I love their pastel pinks and greys this year – the 80s girl in me again! This cardigan is gorgeous.
I also love this knitted duffle for the Fall.
My favorite Boden piece is in the Winter preview. I love the cream and grey together in this St. Ives jumper. (PRV3 will give you 20% off and free shipping in the US, and PRQ2 will do the same in the UK).
Finally, for now at least, I NEED this wool baseball cap from J.Crew.
So what’s caught your eye already this A/W 2013?
As for today I needed to be comfortable – remember the hour I have to sit in the waiting room at dance class!
