Even though temps have been hotter than hot here in Napa, they’re not stopping the fall arrivals from coming our way. Which makes us wish we could sport the latest hats and sweaters sooner than later. In the meantime, we can lust over some pieces that we can’t wait to wear full throttle in the next few months.
SUNNIES: if you typically reach for a black or tortoise frame, this olive color is a good way to switch it up + the fit is fantastic.
BLACK PANT: an updated fall staple + the softest fabric ever.
TEE: the color of the year + goes with your fall color palette.
NECKLACE: the necklace you’ll wear all year long + the most dainty piece to pair with everything.
FLOPPY HAT: two words: instant chic + just the right amount of flop.
SWEATER: asymmetrical hem + neutral color, makes for your not so average fall sweater.
Not only do I absolutely love shopping for all my friends and family for the holidays, I especially love shopping for my mom. It’s a reason to spoil her and I love the mission of finding just the right gift. The gift that she wouldn’t expect or something she had looked for in the past and had no luck. The gift that simply says, “I love you this much”.
Here are some ideas that she’ll be sure to love.
Necklace – gold plated and age neutral, the perfect piece of elegance for her to wear everyday (Gorjana, $60)
Decorative bowl – so family dinners can be delicious and chic (Tory Burch, $128)
Cozy cape – whether she’s on the go or quiet at home, she’ll be effortlessly in style (Vince, $495)
Double layer gloves – chunky cable knit and fingerless, so she can still text you to say, “Thank you for this fantastic gift!” (Urban Outfitters, $18)
Metallic detail mug – so she can start her day off with some glitz (J Crew, $14.50)
Etched measuring spoons – wood spoons with etched details make these a standout accessory in any kitchen (Urban Outfitters, $20)
Cashmere slippers – because her toes deserve a little luxury too (Arlotta, $115)
Quartz bottle stopper – so the bottle of wine you two just shared can stay fresh (and look pretty) until next time (RABLABS, $64)

Ahh yes, the classic color we ease into after we exhaust our ever evolving black wardrobe. Navy is one of those classic colors that pairs with almost everything and looks good on just about everybody. If you are brave enough to expand your wardrobe color palette, navy is the perfect color to segway from black to a slew of other fun colors. From a classic navy Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress to a navy and white stripe St. James top, it’s a color that is here to stay and one that designers almost always offer in one piece or another, every season.
With some amazing fall collections hitting the racks, I can’t help but notice navy pieces sprinkled in with medium greys, burnt oranges, berry hues and olive greens.
Our favorite navy pieces for fall:
Men’s fashion has become as relevant and evolved as women’s fashion in recent years. Many men’s designers are updating classic staples by using the softest fabrics and incorporating subtle details. We know guys like soft t-shirts as much as us ladies do, so when designers create soft as ever modal tees and french pants for guys or stitch a cool contrast color thread on their favorite button down, they’ve gotta have it. A few of our favorite designers like Ted Baker, Ben Sherman, Penguin and Vince, have set the tone for quality, comfort and style, that create the perfect balance of fashion and function for guys.

2. Vince cotton/modal/cashmere patch pocket henley sweater
