In just three short days we are off to California. Even though we've had the most amazing fall in Stockholm with sunny days and crisp air I'm looking forward to warmer weather. What to bring? An empty suitcase is one idea, then we'll just have to shop our way along the coast.
Well, I'll at least bring some summer staples. A travel wallet from Smythson to keep all those documents in order. Céline sunglasses. A large clutch to take me from lunches to dinners. Boyfriend jeans because they are comfortable enough to drive in and stylish enough to wear while eating out and museum hopping.
As for fall investments, where to start? I'll definitely invest in all different colored Equipment shirts and also their cashmere. I can't get enough. I've been eyeing Salvatore Ferragamo Varina flats for quite a while. I like how they are over the top preppy. Paired with well worn jeans they'll be perfectly balanced. Ashley Pittman's fair trade jewelry caught my eye a while back. Her Helini earrings are perfection. After summer's bright nail polishes I'm longing for an everyday nude, perhaps YSL's La Laque Couture in Beige Leger will do the trick? And of course, the amazing Donna Tartt will finally grace her readers with a new book. The Goldfinch is out October 22. Be sure to read this conversation with her editor, Michael Pietsch, in Slate.
