There is another side to my simple self. You know, the one that loves a little drama from time to time — whether it be in accessories or clothing.
In this case, it's in the form of a necklace by Devon Leigh.
The mix of wide link chain, faceted aquamarine beads and the carved cross pendant makes this piece special and interesting. Well traveled.

There is something about that lived-in look to a boot. Easy. Casual. No fuss.
This black suede and leather laceless desert boot from Marsèll is perfect for most of life's everyday occasions. Instantly recognizable by a use of washed leather finishes and fluid shapes, the Italian artisanal label is known for its nonchalant take on luxury. The shoes are carefully handcrafted with a worn-in look for a modern appeal.

It's not just Charlotte Olympia having fun this fall.
Fendi brought out the little monster not too long ago. And this season, the line's embellished tote is sporting a funny face.
The buckets, totes and backpacks from CO this fall are adorable — and in so many colors and textures! However, this Feline Bucket Bag takes the cake. Featuring a galvanised brass face inlay, this lightweight black calfskin shoulder bag includes an internal zip pocket and an adjustable slide-through leather strap.
Though I lean toward the practical side in handbags, I can't help but wonder if my days might be a bit brighter with this little guy by my side.
If you've seen me in the last year and a half, you know that I haven't changed out my earrings. Call it lazy; but I call it ease. Just like this go-with-everything pair of triangle safety pin earrings in 14K gold by Loren Stewart. Definitely up my alley.

What appeals to me these days — simplicity.
During this transitional season, where the temperatures fluctuate, an oversized caftan style dress seems quite perfect. Easy to layer under or over. I love this one by Shaina Mote. Made in the U.S.A., it's available in both white and black and features a graduated hem line and hip pockets. Shaina is known for creating conversational pieces that evolve with the wearer through the years, reflecting an effortless west coast attitude with fine tailoring and high-end construction.
Depending on your climate, this is one piece that can be worn throughout the year.
