I know, I know the last thing you want to hear about is fall.  I mean it’s been so hot here in the A.  I mean so hot. BUT I can’t help it, I’ve been hit with the hurry-up-and-get-here-fall-bug.  It all started very innocently last week when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off.  It really is one of the best sales of the season and it had me filling my cart with all things fall before I could even remember that it was 95+ degrees out.  I mean yes it’s hot, but fall really is just around the corner so better get the getting while the gettings good right?!

My thoughts exactly that’s why I ended up scoring these killer frayed-edge jeans and burgundy block heels at $100 off.  I love how the jeans are cut to give just enough of a view of the sandals and the bordeaux suede just screams fall!  I also finally caved and bought the sunnies I’ve been dying to have, a fedora I’ve been coveting, and a pair of classic Rag & Bone booties!  Though word to the wise, there’s a chance some items in your cart won’t make it to you…I was so disappointed to have three items cancelled (this vest, these jeans, and this blouse) after I placed my order due to fulfillment.  And the worst part I got no notice!!  (Wah wah, #firstworldproblems).  

But this post isn’t about the Nordstrom sale, it’s really about beginning to transition, and sneak in all of those coveted fall items you just can’t wait to wear!  Here I paired a few of my new favorites with a few of my old; like my favorite black silk blouse, olive green trench coat (similar here) and Zac Zac Posen nude handbag.  Zac bags of course aren’t new to us, they’re one of our absolute favorite bags, and because they’re one of our favorites we’ve decided to give one away to get everyone on our excited-for-fall-crazy-train.

So enter to win a Zac Zac Posen ‘Jumbo Eartha’ Calfskin Leather Double Handle Satchel in Dune (retail value $595) in the widget below, and tell me, are you as excited to transition into fall as I am?!  Good luck friends! Truly, MKR
