My mother informed me that she is retiring (and procuring into these 5 developments) these four objects.


My mom, Nancy, has done a few rounds of closet cleaning over the past few months to clear out items she doesn't wear that often. While she's definitely strategic with her shopping these days, she takes advantage of this cleanup session to make room for a few fall items that she had in mind. In fact, she wrote to me about some of the items she personally has in her own closet and wants to retire for the moment. With these messages, she also shared with me the items that she saw and that she would like to shop for instead.

For the most part, the fall trends she feels are modern yet timeless at the same time to fit into her more classic style. They are also pieces that are likely to have a long life and will hang around for a while. Keep scrolling for a taste of the things my mom is about to retire (including her testimonials) and some of the trends she'd like to try as they are shown on a number of our favorite fashion folks. You will also find inspired shopping tips for everyone in case you are interested in trying out any of the looks that come your way.
