Friday Distractions: Better Than Pumpkin Spice

Posted by Allison Gigliotti on

Heavenly Jacket

As much as we wish we could live in a continuous beach-pool-beach-pool loop and have summer last forever, the reality is that the days are getting shorter, the mornings and evenings are cooling off, and it’s time to switch gears. Instead of flying out the door in a bikini and cut-offs, we’re trading shorts for the Racer Leggings and layering up for our outdoor adventures. In fact, we’ve dreamed up some Autumn outerwear so good that by the time you’re done reading you’ll be all “Summer, who dat?”

Meet The Heavenly Jacket, the perfect companion for all your Fall activities. This streamlined, lightweight puffy jacket will warm you up as you cheer from the bleachers of your favorite football team, while the stretchy, breathable side-panels ensure your comfort as you wrap up your day with a sunset hike. And rest assured, the Swiss down filling is 100% traceable and cruelty-free.

Not ready to say goodbye to your warm weather vibes? We’ve still got you covered. We know not everyone is ready to go full puffy jacket just yet. The Kelso Vest is the ideal in-between layer to help you transition into the season. Pair it with the Cully Longsleeve Woven Shirt (we’re partial to the Sangria Plaid), and you’ll be ready for all things pumpkin spice.

If you’re more of a cozy gal who’s been itching to get on a hayride since the first week of September, then the Evans Quilted Shacket just might be the layer you’ve been longing for. Part shirt, part jacket, this shacket is filled with synthetic down and pairs well with a steaming mug of apple cider.

Here at Carve Designs we don’t believe that layering up should be uncomfortable or cumbersome. There’s no need to sacrifice style, comfort, or function just because of a nip in the air. You may be sad to see summer go, but the cozy factor of these fall pieces will have you longing to tromp through a pumpkin patch before you know it.

 

Sparkling Apple Cider Sangria

No better way to ring in fall, then with this boozy twist on sparkling apple cider. We're telling ya, this is the bubbly, celebratory cocktail for all of your fall get-togethers, whether that means a girls' night in or a Halloween shin-dig…or maybe just because you’re in the mood for a delicious adult beverage to toast a brisk, autumn weekend. Get the recipe. 

David Luning

This month we decided to slow it down a bit with a easy listen tune by California native David Luning. Driftin' gives us all the fall feels and makes us want to cruise the California coast. David Luning is a previous American Idol contestant, but that seems to be a distant memory, as he is now working with the music producer Karl Derfler of Blue Rose Music, who has worked with Tom Waits, Dave Matthews and No Doubt. Throw on his album Restless and float effortlessly into fall. Want more fresh tunes each month? Listen to our Friday Distractions Playlist.
