If I have any say in this at all — fall has arrived. It’s decided! This morning, I woke up at 6AM and it was perfectly chilly outside. My sisters and I had plans. We were going to eat spiced pancakes, drink hot coffee and watch the pilot episode of Gilmore Girls while the sun came up. We did, and it was wonderful.
Watching Gilmore Girls marks the beginning of our favorite season. It’s tradition — the epitome of cozy. Not to mention, Stars Hollow reminds us of Lexington through and through. So this year in particular, as it’s my first official summer/autumn transition while living in New-England-esque downtown, I’d been bursting to experience a brisk Saturday morning all layered up at the farmers market.
My favorite pieces here (the ones I’ll be wearing over and over this season) are the Vegan Leather Bomber from Anthropologie, the Washed Denim Overalls in “Eclipse” from Free People, and the Mosaic | Marigold & Black Scarf from Block Shop Textiles.
The overalls are so cozy and they fit so well. I’ve tried on a few different styles over the last few months and these are the only ones that have fit me right. I love them because they’re slim in the leg without being tight, and the back sits nicely just above the tush, which I find much more flattering than the ones with a panel running all the way up the back.
After the farmers market, we went straight to Evans Orchard & Cider Mill. I was determined to not miss the good apples this year! It was all about the Jonagolds.
Anthro’s bomber jacket is wonderful. I love the material. It’s soft, but not flimsy — and it has great openwork details in addition to a front zip, side pockets and a snap collar. It also has a stretchy knit panel on the lower back, which I really like because it cinches the waist for a more flattering fit.
Block Shop Textiles has the most beautiful block printed scarves I’ve ever seen. The patterns are stunning and I just love the story and mission that drives this company. It’s owned by two sisters who work with a co-op of artisans in Rajasthan. They hand-block-print each scarf with natural dyes, the same way they’ve been doing it for the last 350 years. A portion of the proceeds from every scarf sold goes back to this community. Definitely check out their site to find out more.
The day was breezy and perfect. I can’t believe how quickly summer passed.
But I’m so ready for autumn.
Now…what to bake with these beauties…
