Coffee Break: Lynda Short Boots

Cole Haan Lynda Short Boots - Nike Air®
iconWe’re always a fan of the short ankle-high boots — they’re perfect beneath pants all fall and winter long. We like the Nike Air technology in these simple Cole Haan boots, and we like the variety of sizes still available even though they’re marked down — they were $298, now $161.46 at Sierra Trading Post. (They’re available in both black and brown, too.) Cole Haan Lynda Short Boots – Nike Air®

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: ‘Gabrielle’ Wool Crepe Jacket

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Milly 'Gabrielle' Wool Crepe JacketHappy Monday! We’re liking this ivory wool crepe jacket from Milly — the contrast trim strikes us as interesting and flattering against a variety of complexions, and the collarless jacket seems chic. We particularly love it with the chain link silk shell, as pictured. The jacket is $525 at Nordstrom (available for preorder).  Milly ‘Gabrielle’ Wool Crepe Jacket

With fall nearly here, we’re starting to think about boots, and long comfy sweaters, and, well, jeggings — more comfortable than skinny jeans, less see-through than leggings!  We’ve heard great things about this pair from Paige Denim, and we like the classic blue look.  They’re $179 at ShopBop.

Bargain Friday’s TPS Report: Cable-Knit Wrap Vest

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Old Navy Womens Cable-Knit Wrap VestsOK: This wrap vest from Old Navy is a bit outside our comfort zone, but imagine this for a casual workday outfit:  Pencil skirt, knee-high boots.  The vest, worn with a  simple long-sleeved crew neck beneath it, a statement necklace, and perhaps one simple bangle worn on top of the sleeve of the crewneck.  We think it would particularly be a great way to play with tone-on-tone dressing — we like this greenish “twilight,” but they also have a lovely camel, charcoal, and a “black marl.”  The vest is $34.50 at Old Navy.
