Fall Wish List

Fall-15-Wish-List-1-Design-Crush

1. E Hoops  2. Quilted Baseball Hat  3. Lace Up Knee High Military Boots
4. Openweave Scarf in Scottsdale Plaid

It seems as though summer knew just the right moment to exit stage left this year. Autumn weather showed up this past Saturday, ironically on time considering my friend Andrew hosted an End of Summer party Friday evening. This season I’m focused on comfort – warm knits, flat shoes, and plenty of plaids – and I’m on the lookout for a great trench or anorak to help with layering and a pair of ankle length skinny cords.

Brown Bag Bunch

Brown-Bag-Bunch-1-Design-Crush

11:11:02 Tote Bag

If summer is all about cotton and linen and lightness, then autumn is surely about the opposite. Heavy canvas, knits, and most definitely leather. Leather bags to be exact. Brown by preference because black just feels very much like winter and I’m not quite ready for that just yet. What will you be toting this fall?

Field Pack

Field Pack-1-Design Crush

 

I just returned home from a few days at NY NOW where I got to scope out all things new as well as catchup with some old favorites. One that stuck out were my pals at Yield Design Co., in particular their brand new Field Pack. An evolution of the Field Bag, the Field Pack has one main compartment with a small interior pouch and two exterior side pockets. This water-resistant duck canvas, copper hardware and vegetable tanned leather bag is modern lines at their best. (But really, check out their entire line of bags because whoa.)
