As sad as I am that summer is winding down, I love the change in the weather. Last week there was an article in the NYT’s on seasonal change (and fewer work hours) and how it’s important for our creativity and productivity- I couldn’t agree more. The cooler evenings foretell fall days to come, and although it is too early to bring out most of my new purchases, sweaters are the perfect transition pieces. This season, there are tons of new shapes, textures and prints beyond the classic cardigan. Thrown over a sundress or white jeans, a fisherman knit or intarsia print is the perfect topper for end of summer picnics and fireworks.
And my favorite and most versatile piece in my wardrobe, the cashmere poncho. I throw mine over everything from jeans to cocktail dresses.
