Gigi Beret

The temperature drops five degrees and I'm already thinking about hats and sweaters. Cut me some slack! Winter is longer and more cruel in these parts, so this classically Parisian accessory by Hansel from Basel (in wool and mohair) feels like it could be a bright spot in a cold, dark future ($128). – Jeralyn, editorial director

Flamingo Smoking Slipper

Unlike Jeralyn, I want to keep summer alive as long as possible. I spotted these cheery and cheeky espadrilles on a rainy day in Scotland. They lifted my mood immediately, and I've been obsessed with them since. Who says I can't wear them through the winter ($75)? – Pavia, CEO

Handcrafted Maine

Handcrafted Maine: Art, Life, Harvest & Home

After a blissful week off in Maine, I have my eye on this book with profiles of local artists, artisans, and craftspeople who have chosen to call the rugged and wild state home. From weavers and potters, to boatbuilders and lobster-men, this collection of photographs and words gives readers a window into the life and spirit of a talented group of New Englanders ($27). – Berit, senior editor

Westerlind Jumpsuit

Westerlind Climbing Jumpsuit

I’m sort of obsessed with this unisex jumpsuit inspired by the mountain climbing pioneers of the 20th century. I’m not saying it’s going to make me want to do any rock climbing any time soon, but I’m not saying I wouldn’t enjoy taking it out on a fall hike or fishing expedition either ($275).- Daniel, editor

Soul Addict Hemp Butter

Holy Cacao Hemp Butter

Worth every penny. A no-brainer for the morning routine, I add a tablespoon of Soul Addict's tasty raw, organic, vegan hemp butter (don't worry, despite the CBD oil, you won't get high) into my smoothies or coffee ($45).  Kate, contributing editor

My Twenty-Five Years in Provence

My Twenty-five Years in Provence: Reflections on Then and Now

I’m on the road for work this week and have Peter Mayle’s new book tucked away in my carry-on. With a French grandmother and a Francophile mother, the beloved author’s accounts of life in Provence (including A Year in Provence) were legendary in our home and I can’t wait to dig into his final volume ($17). – Berit

Foot Soldier Blanket

Foot Soldier Military Defender Plaid Wool Blanket

With Labor Day Weekend in the rearview mirror, I have my eyes set on another (much less depressing) end-of-summer milestone: September baseball and a potential postseason run from my New York Yankees. Having already purchased my tickets for the final month of the regular season, I’m gearing up for some chilly night games in the Bronx — nothing that s’mores bread pudding from Mighty Quinn’s BBQ (field level section 132, you’re welcome) and a warm, cozy blanket can’t remedy. This one from Faribault Woolen Co. — in navy blue, of course — is the perfect functional-yet-stylish blanket that can go from couch to campsite to cheering section ($200).– Rachel, intern

Koinobori Laundry Bag


I like this clever take on a cotton travel laundry bag — it's in the shape of a Japanese wind sock. Pack it flat, then "feed" it with dirty clothes throughout your trip (when it hangs, it looks like a fish on a line). The whole thing can be tossed in the washing machine once you get home (12.50€, in red or blue). – Jeralyn
