Even though it's still in the 90s every day here, I have been doing a lot of online browsing for fall/winter clothing. Our winters are so mild that "early fall" collections seem better suited to the climate, and I almost always prefer the early season colors to the jewel tones that start to dominate as the holidays approach.

The Finds below are ideas I've collected from my favorite catalogs, as well as pieces that have been hanging out on my wishlist/replacement list. I'm not going to get all of this...maybe not even a large subset, but it's fun to gather a bunch of ideas before narrowing things down.

Because I bought so little early in the year, I still have spaces open for seven statement items this year.

I also need to replace the following essentials:
puffer coat
utility pants
chunky cardigan (probably)
light jacket (maybe)

On my "do not buy" list:

unstructured peasant tops

black dresses (except maybe that EF tank dress)

Has anyone else started thinking about the new season yet? I'm pretending like I might have somewhere to go other than the grocery store.
