Lately I’ve been daydreaming, trying to conjure memories of fall weather.  It’s been closer to a decade (!) since leaving NYC, but I still get forlorn thinking about September on the east coast.

Layering is an exciting signal that the summer months are gone.  The brand Rag and Bone is great for gearing up for cooler weather.  Nothing makes me feel more like a sharp dresser than a smartly tailored jacket.  David Neville and Marcus Wainwright mix the masculine with the feminine to create a slightly androgynous, subtly sexy look.

I often find myself  trying to persuade mother nature by topping my outfit with a scarf.  Reminiscing of walking around New York on a chilly day makes me (almost) forget the chaos that would whip around you.

As an Austinite, it’s easy to work scarves into your everyday wardrobe.  They’re ideal for our usually mild fall weather, and you have the option of throwing it around your shoulders when it gets a bit cooler in the evening.
