But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Just like a google calendar update, very punctually every year, when mid august arrive I need knits, burgundy colors and layers. If sweating heavily is my favorite activity? You’d think so!
Full length knits
Knitted dresses are the real enemy of your closet. Sure they look great but man they take up a lot of space. But I have and will continue to love them endlessly because really, tell me something equally comfortable and chic like a full length knit dress.
This fall I am going for the look of Céline Resort 2017 with chunky knee boots.
Heavy gold (or neck work-out as I call it)
Heavy fall knits love equally heavy gold.
Jil Sander Necklace
Scarves long enough to…(?)
Just imagine this: it’s an early September morning. It’s still a bit too warm to go all in with real autumn jackets but yet too cold to only wear a blazer. Enter: the long (and slightly unpractical) knit scarf. The longer the better. If you start feeling like a mummy you are on the right path.
If you only buy one jack this season (which is what people who does not have a shopping problem do I guess?)
…let it be a leather trench coat.
Note to self
Denim jackets are actually not only for spring like your mum used to tell you as a child. Wear your denim jacket in a full denim suit with a big knit over your shoulders.
Full look, Toteme.
