Coffee Break: Diamond Triangle Earrings

gold triangle diamond earringsPretty! I like the teeny tiny diamonds in these small gold triangles — they look chic yet classic at the same time. They’re $331, available at Ylang 23. WWAKE Diamond Triangle Earrings


Coffee Break: Catalina Wedge

Cole Haan Catalina WedgeOooh: I know we just did a round up of beige pumps, but these beige wedges are getting rave reviews on Zappos. I like the almond toe and the way they covered the heel with the patent leather as well (so many beige wedges resort to a wood or cork material)! They also come in black. They’re available in sizes 5-11, narrow and medium, for $168. Cole Haan Catalina Wedge

Coffee Break: ‘Bond’ d’Orsay Leather Pump

Kurt Geiger London 'Bond' d'Orsay Leather Pump | CorporetteWe’ve had a fairly conservative week thus far — a black suit! beige pumps! a white blouse! — so I’ll admit: I was on the hunt for a really colorful, playful pair of heels. These Sergio Rossi pumps were strong contenders, but then I saw these Kurt Geigers — while less crazy in color, that super skinny stiletto is h-o-t. I think the pink is fun, but note that they do come in a black, as well as a beige patent. They’re $500 at Nordstrom (read the reviews re sizing if you’re tempted).

Coffee Break: ‘Luna Pearl’ Fluted Earrings

Lagos 'Luna Pearl' Fluted Earrings | CorporetteI love pearls, and I hate post earrings, so it is perhaps not surprising that I really like these pearl earrings with lever backs from Lagos. Two things to note: First, these are pretty big earrings — 12MM — but that can be a great look, particularly for a woman with more of a preppy vibe. Second, I would not recommend wearing these with a pearl necklace — the whole look would just be too matchy-matchy for me. (But, hey, you do you.) The earrings are $295 at Nordstrom.

Coffee Break: Reversible Tote Handbag

Target Reversible Tote HandbagI was on the Target homepage for something random recently, and this bag popped up. It’s polyurethane, with a magnetic closure and no structure by itself, as near as I can tell. There are a number of fun colors, and I like that most of the bags have a more muted color on the reverse — the reverse of this happy yellow one is a gray, almost putty color. It’s $36.99 at Target.

Coffee Break: Alice High Heel

Boden Alice High Heel | CorporetteOooh: I love the look of these high heels from Boden — I love the way the T-strap doesn’t come all the way up to to the ankle, as some do, but instead sits lower on the vamp of the foot, which is a much more flattering look. I’m more a fan of the solid/colorblocked shoes myself (such as the purple/navy/teal ones, pictured), but they also come in some polka dotted versions for the girliest of girls among you (but you may want to revisit our conversation on when girly clothes become unprofessional). They’re $178 at Boden. Boden Alice High Heel
