Hooray! Autumn is finally here!!!
Which means s’mores, campfires, chunky sweaters, boots, crisp air, knitted caps, hiking without heat exhaustion, and leaf peeping.
Can you tell I’m a fan?
I’ve been thinking about what pieces I can add to my wardrobe to transform my summer outfits into fall, and I’m thinking a lot of jewel tones and layers.
Here are some things I am obsessing about for the season.
//For getting outdoors
1 // Marmot Featherless Hoody. $200. I have been jealous of Matt’s packable down jacket and was hoping to get one for myself this year. Luckily, Cairn read my mind and sent me this jacket in our latest Obsidian box. [Sign up for your own Cairn box here]
2 // The Northface Hybrid Hiker Tights. $80. Much more affordable than the Fjallraven Tights I’m still drooling over, these look perfect for a thicker layer on backpacking trips without adding bulk.
3 // Pategonia Better Sweater Fleece Vest. $99. [Impact Green on sale for $49!] I’ve got this vest in grey, but I love imagining the green or navy over a grey long sleeve shirt with jeans or running tights while sipping hot cocoa by a campfire in the woods. Oddly specific, I know. This vest gives me those kinda feels.
//For work and play
4 // Old Navy Faux Suade Ponte Pants. $40. [Currently on sale for $25.] They stretch like leggings, and look professional enough to pair with heels and a nice blouse for work.
5 // Sorel Emilie Chelsea Boot. $150. One of my favourite brands, this low ankle boot is perfect for wet days that don’t require rainboots, or for when you still need to look put together on sales calls.
6 // Old Navy Mock Neck Swing Sweater Dress. $35. Feels like a sweater, I am loving the green and burgendy colours for Fall. I bought the green version and as it gets cooler, I plan to pair mine with burgendy knee high socks or tights.
//Events to attend
7 // Euphoria Greenville. 9/20 – 9/24. Happening this weekend, I’ve been attending this festival off and on for years with my bff Megan. We’ll be at the Sunday Brunch this year, following it up with a visit to the zoo. [Greenville, South Carolina]
8 // Stonewall Creek Harvest Stomp. 10/7. Drink wine and pretend to be Lucille Ball? Right up my alley. You get to stomp on grapes, commemorate your stomping on a t-shirt, and you can bring a picnic lunch to enjoy with a bottle of wine on their property while petting the best vineyard dog I know, Max. [Tiger, Georgia]
9 // Highland Food and Wine Festival. 11/9 – 11/12. I’ll be at the Main Event, which is a big Oyster Roast in the middle of Main Street. I’m pumped about the Grammy-award winning musicians that will be playing as I see how many different ways Oysters can be deliciously prepared. [Highlands, North Carolina]
Learn a new skillset or hobby for the cooler weather. I’ve been taking Skillpop classes on tapestry weaving and minimalist ring design, and they’re expanding to their 4th city this Fall (hey Nashville!) Or use it as a chance to work on a foreign language. Duolingo can help English speakers learn 30 different languages on their app in 5 minute bursts. Or, take American Sign Language at your local community college.
What are you excited about this season?
