Coffee Break: Taryn Rose Fierce

Taryn Rose - Fierce (Black Nappa) - FootwearToday we’re liking this basic black peep toe from Taryn Rose, which has great comfort ratings at Zappos.  We like that the heel is under 3″, and that the shoe comes with arch support.  The fact that it’s on sale doesn’t hurt — it was $475, now $299.25.  Taryn Rose – Fierce (Black Nappa) – Footwear

Coffee Break: RoadID WristID Elite

I know that many readers of this blog are outdoor exercisers — runners, bikers, and walkers.  If you’re like me, you worry about things from a safety perspective.  (Warning: morbid thoughts comin’ up.)  On the one hand, you want your ID on you in case you’re hit by a car or otherwise incapacitated — but on the other hand, if you’re attacked, the last thing you want is for the attacker to have both your keys AND your address (which they will if you’re carrying your license).  So when I heard of this nifty bracelet I just about swooned — it has your name, city, and the phone numbers of loved ones — no address.  (You can also add information about blood type, allergies, and more.)  Perfect!  It’s $29.99 at  WristID Elite


Coffee Break

Monserat de Lucca grey leather 'Trenza' braid detail shoulder bagWe’re liking this great shoulder bag from Monserat de Lucca. We like the braided detail, the multiple pockets (both outside and in), the two optional handles, and the gorgeous, lovely color.  It’s $297 at Bluefly (was $495).

Coffee Break: Emily High-Heel Platform Mary Jane

emily mary jane high heelsWe always forget about Johnston & Murphy for women’s shoes, but they consistently have some really cute heels.  Today, we’re liking these “cognac” platform Mary Janes — we like the tiered look to the leather, as well as the color.  The price isn’t bad, either — was $228, now $89 — but if you buy two pairs of shoes you get the second pair 50% off.  EMILY HIGH-HEEL PLATFORM MARY JANE

Coffee Break: Built NY Cooler Tasty Lunch Tote

iconA happy lunch tote can make you feel downright excited to eat the lunch you brought, can’t it?  Today we’re liking this adorable purple/orange/red tote from Built NY — and it’s even on sale!  Was $24.99, now $19.99 with the eBags summer sale (20% off everything). Built NY Cooler Tasty Lunch Tote Pattern Nolita Stripe

Coffee Break: olsenHaus Grace 2 Peep Toe Pump

olsenHaus Women's Grace 2 Peep Toe PumpWe’re in a peep-toe kind of mood today, and we’re loving these lovely pumps from olsenHaus (which, apparently, has no connection to the fashion empire of those other Olsens). In addition to being ridiculously cute and having a heel below 3″ (the combo is hard to find), the shoes are also vegan. We like the gray/yellow (pictured), but the hot pink or teal would make a fun pop of color to an otherwise sedate outfit. They’re $199.95 at olsenHaus Women’s Grace 2 Peep Toe Pump,Grey/Citron,7 M US
