Fall weather in New York is breezy at best. For someone who tends to err on the side of getting cold, ie. living in “layertown” come September, fall is the just-as-cold-but-sneakier predecessor to winter in this city. It’s devious ways of tricking you into believing that the crisp sunlight is providing heat have always frustrated me. In fact, you might be slightly comfortable on the sunny side of the street but should you step into the shade or find yourself near any sort of body of water, forget surviving the chill! At least I do.
Hence, one way I arm myself against the cold is by focusing on all the copper and gold that’s filling the season. Especially this year – I’m all about the rose gold, the warm bronze and the bruleed. I love incorporating it in jewelry and clothing, spotting it on the street and interior decorations, and even aiming to get it in what I’m making for dessert! (roasted cinnamon peaches with caramelized walnuts topped with honey-drizzled ice cream, in case you were wondering.)
Here’s a set of some items I’m loving [and sporting] that are helping to make the cool fall days just a little bit warmer.
