Is there anything better than Fall layering? Cozy sweaters, soft scarves, oversized jackets, creamy leathers. As a California girl I never really understood how to layer until I came to NYC for college (I also think in high school I only wore open-toed shoes if you can believe it) and then it felt like a whole new world was revealed to me. Take this cognac leather trench, for example. I would have never had a need for it in LA, but now it's impossible for me to imagine living without. I only wish you could feel how buttery soft it is.
Admittedly, I still get a bit overzealous every Fall and splurge on an assortment of cold weather accessories and essentials. Even on my current trip through Italy (we just arrived in Bolzano for the wedding, which I can't believe takes place on Saturday!) I insisted that we make a stop at the Sermoneta store in Venice to see if I could pick up a pair of their colorful gloves. To my surprise, two of the friends I'm traveling with also walked out with pairs of their own: the quality of the leather and construction were too good to pass up! I can't wait to add them to my slowly growing collection of luxury leather goods back at home.
