Coffee Break: Sarah Flat

These really fun flats come in black suede, a denim stripe, and this gingersnap suede, which looks gorgeous. I like the little decorative bow on the top, too. They’re available in a lot of sizes (4-12) as well as in narrow, medium, and wide widths. For $89 and with 10 four- and five-star reviews at Zappos, they look like a great option. They’re at Zappos ($89), Amazon ($38-$158), and Nordstrom ($89). Naturalizer Sarah Flat

Coffee Break: Trigg Desk Vessels

They call these “desk vessels,” and you could use them as pen cups, or you could use them as little potted plant holders or for air plants. I like the architectural look to them, and the whole set looks really cool. And because they’re freestanding, you don’t have to worry about attaching them to the wall or anything like that — although they have really nice sconces as well. This set of two is $37 at Amazon with plenty of very positive reviews. Umbra Trigg Desk Vessel (Set of 2), White/Brass

Coffee Break: Studded Nylon Tote

I always like a good nylon tote because they’re lightweight and they avoid some of the issues with polyurethane bags, which are often sold as vegan bags but also often have some weird chemical smell issues. That’s not the case with nylon bags, and they’re affordable, lightweight, and sturdy. I’m a big fan in general, and I’m happy to see that Rebecca Minkoff is making them. This tote is 15″ x 15″ x 6″, which is a great size for a summer schlep. It’s $195 at Nordstrom in the pictured black and in “sea mist” and it’s on sale for $117 in “eclipse.” Studded Nylon Tote

Coffee Break: ‘Siren’ Semiprecious Stone Stud Earrings

I’m a big fan of Monica Vinader because her designs are delicate and organic and just really lovely. I like the green (Amazonite) we’re featuring here but this earring also comes in a more unobtrusive rose quartz/rose gold (fun fact: rose quartz is supposed to attract love, if you’re interested in that sort of thing). This seems like the perfect post earring, and it’s described on the product page as adding “coastal glamour to the hand-faceted stones of vermeil stud earrings inspired by the artfully imperfect shapes of sea-worn treasures.” This did not strike me as a sea-worn treasure until it was described as such, but I like the imperfect circle and all of the facets of the stone — I think it’s gorgeous. The earrings are $175 at Nordstrom. ‘Siren’ Semiprecious Stone Stud Earrings

Coffee Break: Michelle Pump

We did a whole roundup of nude-for-you heels last week, but I didn’t realize that Naturalizer has a whole Nude Collection with a million shades. This Michelle pump has been around for a while, and it’s great to see it in so many shades of brown and beige and tan — I applaud the effort on Naturalizer’s part. The shoe is $89 at Zappos in a wide range of sizes: 4–12 in narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. Naturalizer Michelle
