First I’d like to give my apologies for the blog being down for the last few days – I had a ton of issues with the site for unknown reasons, but after some struggle, it is now back up and working. If you ever encounter any issues, please feel free to let me know! I’ve thankful for all the readers who let me know about their problems accessing the site.
I just came back from a short trip to Switzerland and Paris for work, where I got to spend time with some of the most chic people ever. Seriously! It was very busy for me from morning until night, but at the end of each day at least, I got to walk around the city and enjoy the inspirational surroundings. I also had some time on the train to put together my fall wishlist – here it is (and I’d love to hear yours too).
1. Navy trench. The cliche about Parisians and navy is so true in my experience – I see it almost as much as black, it’s just as chic of a color, and slightly more “unexpected”. I have way more than enough black clothing in my closet (although I wouldn’t mind another LBD…anyway, off topic) and a light navy layer would find lots of wear in the fall for me. My favorite version right now is a cotton/wool mix classic silhouette from Burberry – and hey, look how good it’ll look with all the black in my closet!
2. Warm poncho. I am a sweater addict, and recently have started to see the light on ponchos as well. A big poncho + leggings are my favorite outfit to wear on planes, lazy days, or feeling under the weather in the fall/winter temperatures. I love this one from Ralph Lauren – it’s big enough to give you lots of cover for leggings, but not super billowy to the point of shapeless. I also love the kangaroo pocket and the button detailing near the neck. The price isn’t bad either (relatively speaking).
