Coffee Break: Pompom Cashmere Scarf

Pompom Cashmere ScarfI’m kind of into pompom details right now, particularly as delicate accents like this cashmere scarf features. I like the bright happy color (it would go great with red, FWIW!) and seems like it would cheer me up on dark wintry and spring days. The scarf is $138, highly rated, and comes in a number of other more sedate colors. Pompom Cashmere Scarf

Coffee Break: Samantha Half D’Orsay Flat

Samantha Half d'Orsay FlatThis pointed toe, half d’Orsay flat is pretty basic — and sometimes that’s exactly what you want. It does come in a zillion colors (and sizes, and widths — and Amazon has even more in sale colors/sizes for as low as $22), but something about the black leather/suede duo is speaking to me today. They’re $89 at Nordstrom (which has a bunch of new markdowns, FYI!). Samantha Half d’Orsay Flat

Coffee Break: Bezel Station Necklace

OK: I have three thoughts with this cute $58 necklace. (I’m sick with strep (joy) so thoughts are a bit more discombobulated than usual.) First: You guys have sung the praises of Nadri for affordable fake diamonds for years and I only recently bought some earrings (no longer available because they were on sale) and I really do love them. Second: Oooh, look, Nadri also has a station necklace for only $58, available in rose gold (pictured), white gold and silver plate. Third: I don’t have THIS necklace, but years ago my husband bought me a very similar 16″ station necklace (I’m 99% sure it’s a fake, in part because he doesn’t remember what it was) and it’s been one of my most-worn pieces — a round-shaped delicate necklace (versus V-shaped pendant necklace) is sometimes just what some collars call for, including crew necks, scoop necks, jewel necks, cowl necks, and more. Cubic Zirconia Bezel Station Necklace

Psst: just for kicks, here are some real diamond bezel station necklaces (including a slightly less traditional one that’s cool)…

Coffee Break: Autumn Grainy Leather 65mm Bootie

Block heels are one thing, and architectural heels are another, but I think the “angled heels” on these booties from Jimmy Choo are really cool and flattering. They sort of look like stilettos but they have the stability of block heels. (Here’s a better image of the heels themselves than what we’re picturing here.) It’s a great way to wear a bootie. They’re $895 at Neiman Marcus and come in sizes 5.5–11. Autumn Grainy Leather 65mm Bootie

Here’s a much lower priced option at Nordstrom with a very similar heel.

Coffee Break: Avenue Tote

Sometimes you just want a lightweight but durable tote, and this Baggallini tote is a good option. It’s nothing overly fancy, but it’s made from nylon and super lightweight, plus it has a zip closure on the front, which is an immediate improvement over half the tote bags out there. It has inside pockets as well, and you can carry it either by its shoulder strap or with the detachable crossbody strap for when you’re traveling or just lugging a lot of other stuff. I think it just looks like a nice bag, and it comes in red, black, and two beige-y colors at Zappos and in a ton of colors at Amazon for $68. Baggallini Avenue Tote

Coffee Break: Tower Book End

This desk accessory looks great if you’re the kind of person who can never find a pen and who’s always looking for your glasses (or reading glasses or sunglasses), and so on. If this sounds like you, you may want to get a bookend with built-in storage. This cute one from Yamazaki Home is a great way to make use of a small space like a desk or a bookshelf and help contain clutter. It comes in white and black. The brand has a lot of interesting things in general — definitely check it out. The bookend is $20 at Amazon. Yamakazi Home Tower Book End
