August is waning. The evenings have a slight chill in the air now…. I feel the urge to don tweed and cashmere… and wear boots.
It’s coming, people. Any day now. The September issue of Vogue.
But not soon enough for me.
That’s because I’m doing my fall shopping homework… right NOW. Surveying my wardrobe, checking what I own that I will wear again this year. Making my list of what I need or want.
And I’m making do with my July and August issues of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. How can I be inspired without the September fashion “bible”?
Still…I did find a few images that I like. This sweater and fringed skirt combination by Michael Kors, for instance. I love the sweater, and I’d wear it with jeans and loafers or boots.

Or this outfit in the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar. I like the look of the ladylike coat with the loose full pants. Very Catherine Hepburn…maybe?
But…..meanwhile….while I’m waiting for Vogue…. I might be persuaded to try to autumn-ize some of my summer items. The better to transition into fall.
Like finding a way to continue to wear my white jeans. I tried these Hudson boot cut white jeans with my Gap long sleeved black tee shirt and a grey/black summer scarf….and my flat boots. It looks… okay. I could throw on my Theory anorak if it rains. Looks… fine.
Maybe I should try to pair my summer pants with a fall top. Like my absolute fav fall sweater…this loose grey Vince turtleneck from last year… with my cropped white jeans?
No… no, no, no, no, no. Now that just looks silly, to me.
Sigh. I guess I’m just not a transition girl. What I really want to do is pack all my white pants and sandals away and haul out my boots and tweed jackets.
And while I’m waiting for the Vogue September issue…
I’ll work on my list…
1. Jeans (high waist, distressed, boyfriend?…we’ll see)
2. Soft sweaters (light texture, fall colours….camel, burgundy ?)
3. Loafers? (those fabulous pointy toe, two-tone ones from Row would be good….or something similar and a bit more reasonably priced.)
What’s on your list for fall?
