I can’t believe Fall is finally here in California. I feel like the warmth of Summer is finally starting to fade and we might actually see some color in the trees soon. I’ve put a lot more thought into my purchases lately, especially after reading The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I want to buy items that are timeless and will last for quite some time. Below is my fall wishlist for this year, though I can see them being well-loved into future years as well.
1. J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck
This tee is so soft and versatile, I can see it worn with everything from boyfriend jeans to an A-line skirt and heels to dress it up a bit. I love that the neckline is soft and thin, so it doesn’t feel as cumbersome as a thick knit would.
2. J.Hannah Rose Gold Beaded Ring
This little ring is made from solid 14k rose gold, something you don’t find often. It’s made in Los Angeles, California. I love how understated it is, I can definitely see myself wearing it year-round.
3. Animana Big Cloud Queen Blanket
I’ve been lusting after this beautiful handspun and handloomed blanket since I found out about Nuraxi. The merino wool, thick weave, neutral color, and ornate texture are just calling my name. I know it will probably never happen, but a girl can dream, right?
4. Kristin Elspeth Silver Bar Ear Pin
Made in collaboration with local metal-smiths in Los Angeles and New York, these silver bar earrings by Kristin Elspeth are lightweight for all day wear. I love that you can turn them to angle up along your earlobe, or hang down for a more formal look.
5. Aesop Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream
My skin has been on a rampage with the change in seasons. I used to use a dermatologist recommended daily moisturizer, but it’s not as natural as I’d like. I like that this cream is natural and includes SPF coverage. Plus, the packaging pulls me in quick.
6. Bianca Panama Hat
Living in California, I’ve had lots of opportunities to collect hats for the Spring and Summer, but not many for Fall. This year I’d like to change that. This hat is 100% wool and made in the USA, and I absolutely love the dark olive color. It would fit perfectly into my current wardrobe.
7. The Chelsea Boot by Everlane
I don’t have many pairs of flat boots, and I’ve been dying to buy a pair of Chelsea boots for quite some time now. These are made from beautiful italian leather and Everlane’s radical transparency mission and quality goods make this an easy decision for me.
8. True & Co. Essential PJ Set
Lately I’ve found myself wanting to wear more fancy pajamas. I feel more put together and well rested for some reason, don’t ask me how that works out. The fabric on these pajamas is so soft and delicate, and they’re the perfect length for me. I have them in gray, but I’d love to pick up this blue pair as well.
9. Women’s Wool Trench by Everlane
This trench is a beautiful shade of gray, and timeless by design. I love that it’s not too light to worry about getting dirty, but it still brings that light-as-snow winter aesthetic to an outfit. I’d pair it with white pants and some flat boots like in this look.
10. Woolrich Felt Mill Scuff Slippers
I picked up a pair of these at the start of actual Fall, and they’ve been so light and comfortable on my feet I’m in love with them. I used to have a larger (and heavier) pair of slippers but these do the job just fine and take up less space.
11. Petra Market Bag by Everlane
There’s no way around the beauty of this tote. I recently purchased this pink and beige reversible one for a couple of recent trips, and fell in love with using a tote again. I think this one would be perfect to span both Fall and Winter seasons.
What is on your fall wishlist this year? Are there any upcoming trends you’re looking forward to?
