There is something bittersweet about August. It’s still summer and we are all trying to enjoy the final beach days, but the sun does set a little earlier and those back-to-school ads are popping up everywhere that we all try to ignore but we know that fall is inevitably on its way.
We love it at the shop because its the best of both worlds. Our summer items are all on sale at 30-50% off and women are wearing their score right away–a new top out to dinner that night or a new dress to a wedding that weekend. On the other hand, we are excited to be opening boxes and seeing new colors and fabrics. The store is slowly warming up its palette with a lot of burgundy, goldenrod and teal–we are definitely seeing color and not as much grey as past autumn seasons. There have been a few days of 60 degrees and dark clouds that has put everyone in the spirit, so our fall collection has proven to be a winner so far.
But of course, one of the best things about fall are the boots and shoes. We are loving all our boots, booties, shooties…again with warm colors and not as much grey. Women love boots: I think if we could wear them everyday we would, and we have some really unique and fun things to add to your footwear collection this season. Give up the boring black and add some red or studs and buckles. Who will be the first one to wear their skinny jeans and boots? Ummm…me!
