Fall List

frame-denim-rebecca-taylor-top-1frame-denim-rebecca-taylor-top-2frame-denim-rebecca-taylor-top-3 It’s mid-August and we’re already seeing signs of Fall in San Francisco – heavy fog and we’re lucky if we get temperatures in the 70s. San Francisco is made for Fall fashion, and it’s not a coincidence that Fall is my favorite season for clothing. A few things that are on my must-have list at Nordstrom for the upcoming season:

  • New denim: I’m still seeking high-waisted options but with a straight leg ankle opening, rather than super skinny at the ankle. This pair has a wash detail at the ankle that I love. Next to complete my denim list: a medium dark pair here, a new black pair here and a weekend distressed pair here.
  • Statement blouses: I love the applique/embroidery detail on the one I’m wearing. I’m also buying this one because I’ll layer it under everything this season!! It’s in elegant silk rather than cotton poplin, making it perfect for Fall.
  • The updated trench: This is the best version for $150 or less! It runs big so I would size down. The tie sleeves are darling, but not so exaggerated that it becomes a distraction when you move/eat/work. If you’re looking to splurge, this is my pick hands down. Cool and classic.

Do you have any items on your must-have list for Fall? Would love to hear!

Thanks for stopping by!

topshop-coat-mother-jeans-1topshop-coat-mother-jeans-2topshop-coat-mother-jeans-3 Looking forward to a quiet family weekend – the kind that involves a lot of cuddles with Lucia, walks with the dogs and slow easy mornings. We are not morning people so weekdays are (literally) a rude awakening. I might even try to carve out some time for a real bath – that would be a treat!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!

PS: I get a lot of questions about this sold out coat – I found an almost exact lookalike for my Sonia Rykiel gingham trench coat here for $218!


Jacket – Topshop (restocked! a great buy under $200 here)
Top – Lamixx (here)
Jeans – Mother Denim (finally on sale here | also eyeing this style by them)
Purse – Mark Cross (here | also saw it on consignment for less in a beautiful camel here and in black here, or a similar box bag for under $300 here)
Sandals – Hermes (similar on consignment here)

Weekend attire, solved:
