09 September 2016. 92 degrees, 44% humidity. Those numbers don't suggest the approach of Fall, but we've been thinking about Fall for months. Though we try to move with the seasons (read: consuming lots of ice cream over the last few months), we're also thinking ahead about the colors and textures that we'll want in the shop as the weather gets colder. The arrival of Fog Linen's fall collection convinces us that colder times are approaching - and maybe that's ok. Soon, we'll be tugging on thick socks to cushion our feet inside winter boots and layering soft under warm. We often marvel as the light changes and the sun sets earlier. It might be cold outside, but the pinks and oranges in the sky remind us hat color is everywhere, if not growing on trees or popping out of the ground. We like the plaids coming out of Fog's fall collection - the inky blue crossed with olive of the Scott plaid and the smaller squares of navy and oatmeal in the Bobby plaid. On the knee length Aneri skirt, the plaids add life to the fabric in the ways that the sky's shifting shades bring life to a Fall afternoon.
