I’ve just returned from vacation and now am playing catch up with magazines, editorials, blogs and news. I truly checked out for a few weeks, skipping emails on what’s new in stores and what’s trending. Road tripping the countryside from the Isle of Skye in the north to Hambleton, two hours outside of London, offered an escape from fashion. My focus switched to the beauty of the landscape, the history of the sites and the interiors and gardens of some lovely hotels.
Being mid-August, the September issues are out with loads of ideas that I’ll start sorting through in the next few days. My head is still in summer mode and the weather is quite warm, so cozy sweaters and gorgeous boots are not high on my priority list…but I’m marking my favorites to share a bit later. Perhaps influenced from visiting Scotland, one trend I plan to incorporate in my fall wardrobe is checks or plaid. I hope to find something in a weight that is California friendly and based on what I’ve seen in a handful of editorials, there should be lots to choose from.
