4 Pre-Fall Essentials We Love

I know we still have a lot of summer left, but it’s always around this time of year when I start to think about fall.  I love the clothing…cozy layers, socks, boots…but there’s no reason to wait until fall! This year I’m getting a head start — with our July catalog dropping this week, we’ve got so many amazing pre-fall items to choose from.  I’ve narrowed it down to 5 items that I can start incorporating into my wardrobe on cooler summer days and nights, and then live in come fall.

ankle boots

A good pair of ankle boots is something you can absolutely make use of in the summertime.  I love wearing them with shorts and tank tops, or with little summer dresses! We have some amazing new boots in our pre-fall collection. Pictured: Buckle Back Ankle Boot, Luxton Ankle Boot, Castillo Chelsea Boot.

Whenever I think of fall, I think of backpacks and going back to school… but these days, backpacks are a desirable fashion item! I won’t go to a music festival without one, all the more reason to get one now and use it for the remainder of festival season! Pictured is the Jericho Backpack.

Also pictured is the Oversized Shaggy Knit Pullover — one of our most popular sweaters, in a baggier shape. It is the most comfortable thing — and its lightweight quality makes it ideal for chilly summer nights!

A lightweight jacket is key for the transition into fall — something easy that you can throw on and not feel too weighed down. Our new Crafted Cloth Tapestry Jacket is so amazing you’ll want to wear it all winter, too!

I love the way knee socks are styled in our July catalog. They look great with heels, ankle boots and, of course, tall boots. I can’t wait to wear them as soon as the weather cools down…but for now I’ll settle for wearing them around my apartment in the air conditioning :).

Women love high heels while school or college girls and students prefer sandals and flat soles. High heels look absolutely stunning with a variety of dresses such as skirts and evening gowns.
