Elie Tahari - Erica Pump (Black 1) - Footwear Love these pumps from Elie Tahari, available in snake-print black, suede, and “driftwood,” a snakey brown.

Coffee Break: Air Bacara Ballet Flat

Maria Sharapova Collection by Cole Haan Women's Air Bacara Ballet FlatFall weather is wonderful, but it can make for confusing footwear choices. Is it cold enough for boots? Are flip-flops or sandals totally out for a commute? Endless has some great sales on flats right now — many are an additional 25% off! — including these ballet flats by Cole Haan. We like the wide variety of colors (some marked as low as $77.87, others still at $165). We like this “black python” color for fall — we think it would look great at the office, but would also be a comfortable commuting shoe. This color is $165 at Endless.com (price drops to $123 once it’s in your cart). Maria Sharapova Collection by Cole Haan Women’s Air Bacara Ballet Flat

Coffee Break: Reflection Symmetry Laptop Sleeve in Blue

Reflection Symmetry Laptop Sleeve in Blue

Whoa: I did not know that a) Jonathan Adler designed laptop sleeves, or b) Modcloth carried Jonathan Adler designs! This happy blue color and the abstract print strike me as just enough to make you feel special, but not self-conscious, when you pull your laptop out of your bag. The case is $29 and available at Modcloth. Reflection Symmetry Laptop Sleeve in Blue

Coffee Break: Modernaire Leather Zip Hobo

Lauren by Ralph Lauren Modernaire Leather Zip HoboiconI recently had a chance to check out Ralph Lauren’s new handbag line, and I was impressed with the quality of the bags as well as the reasonable prices. Like this great hobo, the bags all have a slightly edgy look to them but with a timeless, classy appeal. This bag is $398 at Bloomingdale’s (available in both black and brown).  Lauren by Ralph Lauren Modernaire Leather Zip Hobo

Coffee Break: Multi-Strand Bead Necklace

Kenneth Jay Lane Multi-Strand Bead Necklace We are loving this multi-strand necklace from Neiman Marcus — and for once we actually like it in all of the colors it comes in: black, silvertone, bronze, and golden. We think it would be a great way to make everything from a simple crewneck to a button-down more interesting, and would particularly look great with a boatneck (such as this morning’s TPS). The necklace is $250 at Neiman Marcus.  Multi-Strand Bead Necklace

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®
