Coffee Break: Ruffle Wrap

Nordstrom Ruffle Wrap | CorporetteA wool wrap is great for weather like this where you’re not quite sure how many layers you’re going to need — especially if you’re going out in the evening when temperatures may dip drastically. I like the ruffle on this one and the fact that it’s 100% wool — it’s going to be much more substantial than a poly blend like the ones you buy on the street. It’s available in black, gray, and a dark and light beige, all for $98. Nordstrom Ruffle Wrap

P.S. We’ve just installed a plugin that will allegedly fix the “posting too quickly” problem. Please let us know how it goes (or if you notice any new problems crop up). Thank you for your patience!

Coffee Break: Penelope Flat

Footzyfolds Penelope Flat | CorporetteWe’ve covered foldable flats a few times in the past, so I don’t write about them often, but I definitely use the few pairs I have pretty frequently — I even took some with me to my cousin’s wedding a few months ago as a back-up option. I love the little mesh details and fun colors on these Penelope flats. They’re available in sizes 6-11, for $54.95, at Nordstrom. Footzyfolds Penelope Flat

Coffee Break: Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag

Pour la Victoire Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag | CorporetteOoh la la — I love this teal and black tote bag from Pour la Victoire. The deep colors and zipper/croc details are all right up my alley. This is also available in a butter yellow (limited stock), which is less up my alley, but may be up yours. The bag was $395 but is now marked to $206 at Last Call. Pour la Victoire Yves Crocodile Embossed Leather Tote Bag

Coffee Break: Helina Flat

Naturalizer Helina Flat | CorporetteThis flat is one of the best sellers on Zappos, and I can see why — I like the round cap toe, the metallic chain detail, and the N5 comfort footbed. Zappos has it in this bronze version (which I suspect would make a great nude-for-you shoe for some skin tones), as well as black; Nordstrom has it in four colors (including navy and beige). It’s $69, and available in regular, wide, and narrow sizes 4-12. Naturalizer Helina Flat

Coffee Break: Tie Stripe Scarf

Brooks Brothers Tie Stripe ScarfBrooks Brothers’ Friends & Family sale is on, and ends tonight! I always like the scarf and accessory selections there, so I’m drooling over these tie stripe oblong scarf — it seems fun in a “borrowed from the boys” kind of way. It was $98, then marked to $68, and it comes down to $51ish with code FF25. Brooks Brothers Tie Stripe Scarf

Coffee Break: Lucite Imperial Noir Snake Link Necklace

Alexis Bittar Lucite Imperial Noir Snake Link Necklace | Corporette

I posted this necklace’s sister last week on CorporetteMoms (because hey, every pregnant/nursing mama looks good in a statement necklace), and I meant it when I said it: I’m obsessed with this entire collection. I’m not even one of those people who thinks snakes are cool/sexy/whatever! Something about this lucite/ruthenium necklace — with accents of labradorite and crystal — just really speaks to me. Waaaant. This necklace is $375 at Saks. Alexis Bittar Snake Link Necklace

Psst: Here’s a lower-priced alternative, also at Saks.
