It may only be July 21, but that doesn’t mean we can’t already be dreaming of cooler temperatures, cozy sweaters, and drinking warm cups of coffee without overheating. The past few days here in NYC have been absolutely brutal — 90 degrees or above and humid to boot. I’m not ready for sweltering August in the city, so instead I’ve turned my attention to firmly believing that autumn will come quickly this year.
I absolutely love fall in New York. The only season it rivals is spring, and while the cherry blossoms are lovely and being able to walk outside without freezing is nice, nothing matches the moody, brisk afternoons, hot apple cider fresh from the green market, and the sound of boots clicking against the sidewalk, crisp leaves crunching beneath your feet. I love fall. I love it for all the cliche reasons — the smell of the cool air drifting through your still-cracked window in the morning, the warm colors, wearing tights and scarves and oversized sweaters, the visceral need to cuddle (pets count too), pumpkin spice everything (yes, I’m that girl!). I also just really love not being sticky all. the. time. Get me out of this humidity now.
So, it’s only fitting that Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale falls smack dab in the middle of summer, previewing for us the perfect autumn fashion that we, on one hand, can’t imagine layering on right now but, on the other, want to dream about being able to wear. It’s officially open to the public today, so go right now before all the coziest buys sell out!
While you’re at it, the photos above are from Krystal’s latest appearance in Glamour Magazine — run to the newsstands to see her glowing in this month’s issue! She shows all of us how to perfectly take your autumn look from day to night. You can shop her outfit below along with the rest of my picks from the Nordstrom sale!
Have a great weekend,
