SUNDAY. About to head to a Friendsgiving early dinner, so not having more than a vanilla latte to prep my stomach for food glorious food. The season for battling gluttony has begun. But I'm still going to wear sweatpants for meals... Judge all you want.

Pullover: Victoria's Secret
TUESDAY. When I think about season essentials, I consent to the fact that as my experience with purchases and laundry specifics grows I'm always seeking features that will transcend time. This'll be my third cashmere-blend pullover in a charcoal color and I'm not sure I'll be able to take the three off rotation. One to wash, one to wear, and one to spare! This model has ribbed details that comfortably hug around my palms and lower thighs, just enough so I can wear leggings out. And there are POCKETS... Enjoying working from home sans pants and a proper mug of joe this afternoon.

WEDNESDAY. Farmer's Market in the Fall is always a test of your dedication to the city you live in and support of local producers. Basically, when someone says, "Today isn't the best day to go to the market." on a rainy day in Seattle, you slap them across the face. Across. The. Face. Vintage waxed cowboy hats, cozy pullovers, and skinny jeans you ripped while wrestling with dogs are pretty choice picks for nabbing your weekly fresh fruits and homemade loaf of french bread.

WEDNESDAY.  I settled for a silk jumper to be my new fall transition piece via ASTR for Nordstrom. Cinched waist line and tapered-in pant gives less of that garage uniform and more of a feminine silhouette... though these falling apart, dusty boots don't help...  I'll mostly keep the neckline low and add a peek of lace from an otherwise incognito cami or default to the lazy bra exposure route. Or maintain in line professionally with a slim blazer and sensible heels or ballets. Switch shoes out for the 5" variety and throw on any statement bauble for after work drinks. And it is definitely compliant enough to pair with sneakers for fussless errand-running, too. Layer a fitted, shorter or cropped pullover for a general fall uniform. I love a good, easy one-piece, to say the least.

MONDAY. It's Monday again. Which basically means piecing together the week's wears somewhat coherently. I know mood changes occur depending on the side of the bed you roll off of, but Fall for me is more or less predictable. I get to get creative with layers and textures that come in different shades of black, black, and the occasional grey. And you can argue that grey is a shade of black, but  not as far as my work uniform is concerned! So today is for making that hand-to-chin contemplative pose in front of the closet, while in the last of Summer's pjs.
