Although, I’m deep into my fall wardrobe, I still find comfort in shopping for summer wear—especially when it’s on sale. I make excuses to wear sun-appropriate pieces by taking short trips up north—like to Sonoma or Napa (okay, so mostly for the weather and partly for the wine). While the season is winding down, summer hasn’t even begun in San Francisco. Come October, I’ll get to wear something like this. Who am I kidding? I’ll most likely be in something like this… or both.

When I wore this shirt on Instagram someone made the comment it would be great for breast feeding. Her exact words were “…it looks like I could sneak my boob out to feed the kiddo.” As a former maternity stylist, I chuckled and totally agreed. Although nursing-friendly clothes aren’t top of mind, I’m realizing how relevant maternity wear is to my life rn. Left and right, friends and family are expecting, including my sister and BIL (brother-in-law). I’m gonna be a first time auntie! While I’m nervous and excited about my new role, all I can think about is being called Auntie Kate… or Aunt Kate in like 3 years… when do babies start talking? Clearly, I have lots to learn.

Growing up, I used to wear hoodies on the daily. Not because they were comfy, they just seemed cool—like too cool to get dressed up for school. Since I can no longer dress like I’m in college (think sweatpants—although, I’m not totally opposed to joggers), the bomber jacket trend is going to make a major appearance in my wardrobe this fall. It’s an easy alternative to the moto jacket (which I’m notoriously known for out-wearing) and much like it’s leather counterpart, it can be dressed up or down. I’m looking forward to incorporating this military-inspired piece into my #OOTDs—especially those of the embroidered variety.

Note to self: don’t take a road trip in ruffles. Halfway through the car ride I thought, “Oh, crap—I’m smashing this top”. Upon arrival, I knew the damage was done and with no iron or steamer in sight, there was nothing I could do to fix it. Lesson learned: do not wear ruffles, pleats, or basically anything you don’t want to ruin during long periods of sitting. You may be wondering, why the long-winded explanation? Well, I didn’t want you to think I was a slob… Although, Tyler would probably disagree.

As I was perusing the sneaker section at Nordstrom I found a pair that reminded me of my favorite movie—Forrest Gump.  After I brought them home, snapped a pic for Instagram, it was time to come up with a caption. I Googled “Forrest Gump Nike” to cure my writer’s block and to my surprise I found that these were the actual style from the movie. They’re ridiculously comfy and lightweight—now I have the sudden urge to run across the country.
