“Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” Nora Ephron, You’ve Got Mail.
I love fall. I love fall in New York and fall in Connecticut. I love when the crisper days and evenings of autumn replace the humid heat of summer in New England. I love the navy blue sky and the gem colored leaves that line the winding back roads that lead to my home.
By the first of October, I have all my chunky knits positioned on my closet shelf, arranged by color and ready to go. I greet them with the same enthusiasm I used to greet my friends with on the first day of school.
Although I love this time of year, like most women, I struggle with what to wear. I am tired of summer looks at this point, but fall fashion would leave me a sweaty mess by lunchtime.
My go-to, trauma-free transitional looks include sleeveless, lightweight wool dresses and cardigan sets in deep jewel hues.
Take advantage of the fact that your arms are still a bit bronzed and go bare. Finish the look off with a structured cuff bracelet like our Trellis Bee Cuff.
