Coffee Break – Oval Stacks Necklace

I was actually going to post another necklace from Anthropologie today, but this one went so nicely with this morning’s sweater that I had to change it up a bit. Love the simple shapes and bright, flattering color — I’d wear it with a dark red (like this morning’s TPS) or dark purple in the winter, and with a kelly green in the springtime. The necklace is $58 at Anthropologie. Oval Stacks Necklace


Coffee Break – Classic Lock Haircalf EW Bowler

Olivia Harris by Joy Gryson - Classic Lock Haircalf EW Bowler (Black Sapphire) - Bags and LuggageIt’s been a while since I’ve seen a sophisticated bowler bag, and I really like this one from Olivia Harris b Joy Gryson. The way she she plays with textures is particularly cool, from the calf hair body, to the reptile embossed leather trim at bottom, to the kid leather details at top. It’s rare to see a black bag that will look interesting even against an all-black outfit, but I think we’ve found one here. It’s $695.

Coffee Break – Bamboo Small Pave Hoop Earrings

Bamboo Small Pave Hoop EarringsI’m not normally a fan of posts, but I might make an exception for these gorgeous bamboo hoops with — squee! — tiny blue sapphire pave accents. A small earring, a flash of color near your face… Lovely. They’re $650.  Bamboo Small Pave Hoop Earrings


Coffee Break – Lola Flats

Geox D Lola 25I really like the cap-toed look to these flats from Geox. The lilac/prune pair (pictured here — love that bit of red where the cap toe meets the rest of the shoe) would be a lovely unexpected pop of color to a pair of black pants, gray pants, and definitely navy pants. They range from $110.50 to $130. Geox – D Lola 25 (Lilac/Prune) – Footwear


Coffee Break – Academy coat

Academy coatHooray for coat season! I’m really loving this simple “academy coat” from J.Crew.  In particular, I dig the sweater sleeves, which double as fingerless gloves — it’s a great way to get the bracelet-sleeved look of Mad Men without the fuss of wearing long gloves. The coat is $325 (online only) and available in sandstone (pictured), black, navy, and pine. Academy coat



Coffee Break – Snakeskin Leather Heel Pumps

Snakeskin Leather Heel PumpsWow: love, love, love the snakeskin heel on these brown suede pumps. (Note that they’re also available in a gray suede.) The snakeskin adds a little texture and pizzazz to an otherwise boring look, and it’s the perfect way for even the most conservative dressers to dip their toes in the waters of wearing animal prints to the office. The heels were $198, but are now on sale for $79.20. Snakeskin Leather Heel Pumps
