Labor Day is just around the corner and then it’s back to busy schedules, carpools, and appointments. I know some of us already have kids back in school while others have another couple weeks. Regardless, it’s bittersweet as we send our little (or big!) ones off to school.
During the month of September I make a to-do list and at the top is to edit my wardrobe and organize my closet. Slightly worn items are boxed and dropped off at our local homeless shelter and designer pieces that are in good condition are sold on eBay. My tees and summer dresses get put away and I bring out my cashmere and cable knit sweaters. Because they’ve been sitting a zipped bag for months, they need a good cleaning. These items are taken to the cleaners or washed with a gentle detergent. My favorite is The Laundress Shampoo for cashmere. I try to shop sensibly choosing to spend a little more on timeless pieces and less on those items that are more trendy.
What do you think about the fall trends? Red is in! Unfortunately it’s not the best color on me but maybe just a little pop of color would be fun. A red bag or these pretty red pumps have me thinking.. Yes ladies, those high waist jeans are back in and so are the wide legs. A comfy fun look for fall is a warm sweater and booties, yes? I’ve seen SO many jumpsuits recently and I really like this one. This Vince dress is darling. I like the modest knee midi length and deep V-neck … and don’t forget to add one of these gorgeous cardigans.
