I’ve had no less than three conversations this week marveling at how we’re already into the first week of September. It’s crazy! I had a New York based client tell me yesterday that girls in her office building have already been seen donning booties and sweaters, despite the 94º temps in Manhattan (girls, y’all crazy), proof positive that no matter the weather, when the calendar turns to the ninth month, we all crave the coming autumn.
Here in SF…well, the story’s a little different. September usually ushers in our warm season, though this summer (and from my understanding, last as well) have felt like actual summers. For us, there’s likely no fall weather in sight, at least for a little while. After two brutal New York winters, I can’t say I’m complaining too much, but I’d happily take an evening in the low 50s so I could have an excuse to pull out a coat and any of the booties in this post. Aren’t they all beauties? I have zero justification for buying any new boots, as they are easily the #1 type of shoe in my closet, but what can I say? I’m a boot and bootie addict. Faves on my radar: these oxford style ones from M. Gemi, as well as these gorgeous cognac ones (their shoes continue to impress me, and this week marked the beginning of their fall boot debuts!), plus these cool, structural booties from Dolce Vita. In non-boot finds, these blocky-heeled houndstooth shoes are just plain awesome (hello, statement makers!), and I think these tasseled flats are adorable (hey, good reviews too!). I had also been eyeing these laser cut flats all summer, which one could totally get away with into the late fall here in California…and they just went on sale for 40% off!
Have you been doing any fall shopping as of late? Any good finds?
