My journey in fashion began over 25 years ago as a Portland-based buyer for Nordstrom in New York City. After a decade of doing this work and developing a solid grasp of market demands, I learned that you need the key pieces that really work well together and that you can wear over and over again.

Happy September everyone … wow is time flying! All of a sudden there’s a hint of fall in the air, which I usually love, but this year feels a little different for obvious reasons. Our weather here in Portland is going to be hot, hot, hot for the next week, so we’ll be wearing all our favorite summer dresses. But at the same time, I’m thinking ahead to a perfect fall wardrobe and what we’ll be wearing in our new not-normal lives. It happens every year — all of a sudden sandals feel too summery, but we aren’t quite ready for boots yet. What to wear? It can be a tricky time to dress, so I’ll address that in the coming weeks.
Today I’m highlighting cool new things that have caught my eye. Now is the time to add a piece or two so we’re prepared once the weather shifts. MY ADVICE: get your booties and coats early because it allows for longer wearing time 🙂 Keep reading for my thoughts on what you need right now … I’m certain you’ll like a thing or two!

A PERFECT FALL WARDROBE
New this week!
A shacket, also known as a shirt jacket is so versatile and is definitely the piece to add this fall. You'll see more options below!
Faux leather can easily pass for real leather. I love this trend so much, and adding a piece to your wardrobe will keep you up to date and stylish! I love how she's wearing sneakers, but it's super cute with a bootie as well.
Another super easy dress to wear both now and later. Adding a cozy longer sweater and booties instantly says fall. Rails dresses are favorites because they're not too dressy, but nice enough for a casual event.
I finally splurged and treated myself to a pair of Golden Goose sneakers. And I'm so glad I did! They give a tiny lift -- and they 're just so cool! Also the perfect transition shoe, they'll be in style for years to come!
