obsessed -- autumn cashmere.

COVETING: Elizabeth and James Gwen Leather Flats; $225
There's somethign about a great pair of flats that really captures me -- every time.  They're just so effortlessly chic.  This Elizabeth and James pair is the perfect example.  I love the two tones; the cap toe is so sophisticated, and the silver chain adds such a pretty element that will certainly keep your basic skinnies and sweaters from seeming stale.

I can also be drawn in by brilliant marketing strategies -- even simple ones.  Autumn Cashmere is perfectly suited for me in this way: the brand's name embodies everything that I want right now.  Fall weather, cozy sweaters... It's perfection.  The contemporary knitwear company produces ultra-soft creations in every imaginable shape and hue, from luxurious sweaters that would be perfect with skinny jeans and boots to colorful scarves that would add extra flair to any outfit.

Autumn Cashmere Wavy-Stripe Dress; $242
I tend to be a little wary of sweaterdresses, but this one is too chic for me to resist -- and probably incredibly comfortable to boot.  I love the slightly retro print and that the long sleeves perfectly balance the short hem.  I can just picture it with a pair of opaque tights, boots, an oversized leather bag, and chic waved hair. 

Autumn Cashmere Tweed Shawl Collar Belted Wrap; $264 
I'm constantly searching for weekend wear that's not only cozy and comfortable for hanging around the house, but is chic enough to be worn outdoors in the inevitable event that I need to be ready to go somewhere immediately.  This sweater is just such a piece: it's slightly oversized but not sloppily so, and the print is rustic and pretty.  Perfect to be worn with jeans for a low-key look or over a pretty dress to add a little juxtaposition.

Autumn Cashmere Elbow-Patch Sweater; $319
I'm officially in love with this adorable sweater.  Every detail is just so charming.  From the button closure on the side -- a surprising visual detail -- to the elbow patches, this multidimensional crew-neck top is hardly boring, but stops short of feeling cheesy or predictable.; $143  
I believe that the perfect fall scarf has very specific requirements: it should be chic, versatile, and, of course, warm.  But furthermore, it needs to add something to a look without overpowering it.  This sweet little snood from Autumn Cashmere is perfect in that regard.  The colors are pretty and unique but not distracting, and it can be worn several different ways, with a coat or not.

What are YOU obsessed with right now?

I've never heard of Autumn Cashmere before but everything is super cute & so perfect for fall!

I'm super obsessed with Frye boots, actually any riding boots at the moment, because I just think they make any look super cute & polished without having to wear heels!

I loooove tweed. Words cannot describe. So I'm completely lusting over that tweed wrap.

Back when I was 20 pounds lighter, like three years ago, I spent all my rent money on vintage Etro tweed. So I have some gorgeous fall pieces that I own, but can't fit into. It's a tragedy. So every fall now, I just go into the closet and stare at them.
