Adding Layers

I have a habit of taking a sweater or scarf with me so that I am never caught freezing when the sun goes down or the A/C it too cold.  As Fall approaches, I will adding layers to my rotation; a thicker sweater, a bomber jacket and a light-weight puffer or vest.  Next week I am going to give my closet a once over and see what pieces I am missing and make a shopping list for fall.  What are you looking for?

  1. You are a diving rod of great information and ideas..I needed a new vest and love the ones you curated. My favorite purchase last year was a simple down pea coat that I wore for 10 was the perfect weight from fall through the chilly spring.

  2. I am working on polishing my wardrobe: wearing pieces I have, getting rid of pieces I don’t need, and adding a few “better pieces” This is the week to go through my closet and move clothes. But since we have a lot of hot weather left in Central Kentucky, I need to keep several hot weather things in darker colors. I have made a few purchases to wear a skirt that has been sitting in my closet for the past 4 years. I want it to me the center of my look. SO I need only a few more things and I think I will be set. I love the grey coat and bag. Do you think Uniqlo is going to make the ultra light longer coat again in the grey? I love the short one I purchased and really want a long one to use under my dress coat. That would be just perfect.

    • Hi Beth – I love nothing more than editing and purging my closet. Feels so good to find “old friends” and bring in new fresh pieces! I hope Uniqlo will make their puffer again but don’t have any inside scoop.. I will keep a look out and let you know if I see it. Thank you xxRidgely

      • Let’s keep in touch on the ultra coat. Since it was 93 here yesterday, I realize I won’t need this for awhile. But we do have cold weather here for about 10 weeks. I took my skirt shopping yesterday and found a dressy paisley top and a leopard twin set for lunch and everything else and my cute cute skirt was thrilled.

        • Beth – I did see Uniqlo has a hooded puffer long out now but I think you are looking for the collarless one? Also their jackets /vests (on sale!)are rolling out. I love you took your skirt with you and found things to work with it! How fabulous! That’s the best feeling!! Yay! XxRidgely

  3. I am looking for shoes that I can walk a great distance but still look cute while doing it!

    • I am too! I walk pretty much everywhere and I would love a more “sturdy” shoe that is also good looking! I will see what I come up with and let you know. Thank you Kim for leaving a comment! Ridgely


  1. […] about that, I am still on the hunt for Fall pieces that I can layer into my existing wardrobe (see recent post here).  I have not had a second to go through my own closet, but hopefully next weekend I will get to […]
