Cait’s Coveting: Pre-Fall Wishlist

It’s almost August, which means the Nordstrom Friends and Family sale has occurred, and other retailers are starting to push fall products! Ahead of the change in the weather (which happens around these parts close to November), I’ve started formulating my Fall wishlist, just in case any of my favorites go on sale. Major on my list? Classic accessories, leather and equestrian inspired boots and bags, and warm winter items to cut the San Francisco cold (which will come, despite my LA roots and deepest wishes that it won’t). Check out some of my favorites below, and let me know what you’re looking for this season. Happy Shopping!

Currently Coveting: Early Spring Shopping List

It may have been decided on groundhog day that we’re going to have another 6 weeks of blustery cold winter, but Chloe and I are over here making the most of it by planning for spring! Spring shopping is a nice turn of the seasons in Northern California, because the transition is gentle. You can wear sweaters year round here, so there’s no need to stash your winter wardrobe away. Instead, it’s fun to mix winter pieces with new bright colors and a few fun finds.

Spring is also a great time to plan for your vacation (as I’ve said a couple of times recently), and many designers roll out new fragrance and jewelry collections, in addition to Spring fashions. Shop our favorites below – what are you shopping for this Spring?!

Currently Coveting: 24th Birthday Wishlist

As a kid with a January date of birth, my birthday has always been viewed as a spin-off of Christmas, 3 weeks delayed. The downside? A number of people are burned out from the holidays, and just trying to relax. Also, there is no such thing as a pool party or a barbecue – even in California, it’s too cold for that. The upside? The holidays are over – so my birthday and related celebrations can help keep the magic going for that much longer!

This year, we opted for a joint birthday celebration: my other half and I have birthdays 5 days apart, and agreed on a private wine tasting in Sonoma with our closest friends. Here’s whats on my wish list, this 24th year:

This delicate Bony Levy wave ring in Rose Gold + diamonds. Nordstrom, $795
