Coffee Break: Pearl Crossbody

The Lo & Sons crossbody has, of course, been around for several years now — but I must say I’ve been reluctant on it, in part because it reminded me of something I carried in my teen years. But I’m warming up! I always trust the team at Lo & Sons to put together a lovely, intelligent product (full disclosure: I’ve worked with them in the past, but this post is not sponsored) and the Saffiano leather looks a bit above the other options in this price point. Plus they have three new colors, including blue, silver and graphite. The Pearl is $248.   Pearl Crossbody

 

Coffee Break: Hedde Pump

I’ve been hearing great things about 1.State, which is sold at Nordstrom, Amazon, and Bloomingdale’s — particularly their shoes. If you’re on the hunt for a really clean, classic-looking pump in suede or leather, then this is definitely one to consider. Pictured is the lovely teal color, and there’s also black, a “fire” red, and a nice greige-y ”zinc.” The pump is only $88.95 at Nordstrom in sizes 5–12. Hedde Pump

Coffee Break: Leopard Scarf

Leopard is big right now — everything under the sun seems to be coming in leopard print — and I’ve kind of been on the hunt for a new scarf since losing my beloved DVF scarf last year. While I’m pondering a bigger purchase, I feel like I need a scarf for winter, so this one from Mango seems like a good option to tide me over for now. I like that it’s only $50 and looks soft and cozy and big enough to wrap around yourself. Leopard Scarf

Coffee Break: Pochette Tote Bag

This faux leather tote bag is from Ann Taylor. I like the outside pockets and the fact that it has some structure as well as a lot of internal compartments, including a big zippered area. It also has a removable zip pouch. It’s particularly good if you like to carry something on your shoulder — and a smaller size is available if you prefer that, but I like the size of this one (14.5″ x 11″ x 6″). It’s available in black and paver gray, which is an online exclusive. The tote is $148. Pochette Tote Bag

Coffee Break: The Commando Keeper Sheer Tights

I was intrigued when I noticed that one of the few accessories that MM.LaFleur sells is this tight from Commando, and while I haven’t tried this one myself I thought it might be an interesting discussion — which are the best “sheer tights” for people who want the durability of tights but the general look of pantyhose? The pictured ones are $32 at MMLF, Zappos, and AmazonAnn Taylor has something similar, as does Hue. I’ve been hunting for reported deniers of pantyhose and tights to see which one has the highest denier (thickness) and it’s tough info to find right now — I would guess these Wolford tights have a denier of 40, which is the thickest I’ve found. Readers, what say you — have you tried “sheer tights”? Do you have an opinion on which brand makes the best sheer tights?

Whoa: just saw that skincare brand The Ordinary is shutting down immediately — I know a lot of readers were huge fans. Beautylish and Amazon still have products in stock, and the Deciem store is still open as well.

Coffee Break: Knotted Dress Belt

Cute belt for dressesI know it seems like I’m on a belt-for-dresses kick, but it feels rare to find so many so I thought I’d shout out this lovely affordable option at Banana Republic Factory. I like that it comes in black and cognac, sizes S-XL (XS is sold out, which is a flag to me that it perhaps runs a bit big), and you can use code CLEARANCE to take an extra 40% off today, bringing it down to $20.39. Happy Monday!  Knotted Dress Belt
