Fall Fashion

In the continuing evolution of this blog, I feel like I need to focus more on lifestyle, not just design, though there will still be plenty of that.

In the past, I have been a bit of a clothes horse.  I still love clothes, but am trying to focus on building a quality core wardrobe and filling in seasonally with fun trendy items.   I have been mentally doing some fall wardrobing.  Here are the items on my inexpensive trendy list:

Old Navy











$44.99 – I got these boots last year in grey, and wore the heck out of them.  So glad to see them again this year in black.

Canvas/Land’s End

$68 (Black and Brown)

$39.50 – These are the best value cardigans, I want them in every color.  I finally found a cardigan that doesn’t pill.



Etsy – A great place to find clothing and accessories and support artisans.  I am a little nervous about how things will fit though!



And my fall fashion inspiration:

I really like some things I see at Talbots and Ann Taylor, but I feel like they don’t style their websites well, nothing really struck my fancy when I perused there.

I also think I might need a maxi skirt and perhaps a few fun scarves.

What is on your fall wardrobe list?


About sanctuaryhome

The Sanctuary Home blog was created in May 2009 to augment my interior design business, Jamie Foley Interiors. Below is the design philosophy that guides my business and this blog. A beautiful house isn’t a home unless it speaks to its occupants and fits their lifestyle in appropriate and unique ways. I believe that design can be approached in two ways. The first is from the gut, what feels right. The second is from a logical methodical perspective. I design using the second approach. I feel that having a reason why a piece is selected, having similar elements in the room or throughout the home makes it feel unified even if the similarities are not obvious to the casual observer. It makes a home feel special and contemplative. Building the interior of a home is a process. I create a plan for investment pieces that will last a lifetime, filling in with less expensive, less important pieces that can be replaced when they wear out or look dated with additional investment pieces or of the moment trendy items that update the home. Using vintage or antique pieces with new grounds a home. If everything in a home is new, it feels like a model home, it has no soul. If you use all old pieces, if feels like you live in a garage sale. The beauty is in the mix. Creating timeless interiors involves using pieces from all design styles. It gives the home a layered look and allows a home to look as if the pieces have been acquired over time. Using furniture from all one style or period makes a home look fussy and intimidating. I look forward to working with clients with all budgets and design aesthetics to create a home that special to their family. I encourage clients to express their individuality throughout the entire design process, this ensures your home fits your needs and will delight you every time you walk through the door.
