chloecoatA little chill in the air.

Last Saturday, it was more than a chill. It was downright cold. Or, was it because it was the first of the season?

I ran into a friend this morning and he brought the whole concept of 'first' to light. When we move from summer into fall, there are days that surprise us. No matter how much we want fall temps to grace us, when we experience an unusually cold day, it's a shock to our systems.

No reason not to be prepared. How about with this Chloé wool-blend black coat with furry shearling trim collar. The two-way zip front and slightly stepped hem makes an elegant statement no matter what you're layering it over.

Ivory handbags. My favorite.

No surprise that The Row has mastered the beautifully simple, yet impeccably constructed, handbag. This fall's Drum 10 bag has been crafted in Italy from off white pebbled leather. The roll shaped style has a curved top zipper that opens to a roomy canvas-lined interior. And two ways to carry it — top handle or over the shoulder.

The more muggy and sweltering the weather, the more impatient I become waiting for fall.

I long for the days I can reach for layers. Fuzzy sweaters. Skinny cords. Scarves. Thigh high boots. And fur.

With a plethora of furry options this year — faux and the real deal — there is something for everyone. Perhaps you're digging long fur vests. This fox and goat option by Yves Salomon is beyond fabulous. It comes with a black nappa leather belt and has two side pockets. Its functionality rocks. And it's so chic!

What is grabbing your attention this season?

I am not much of a denim dress fan, but this one has seriously changed my mind.

This season brings back the oversized look for an easy, relaxed vibe. While you may wince at the mere thought of wearing something larger than life, when paired with the right accessories, most can make it work — and many can rock it out!

Marques' Almeida is known for simple, casual designs, with a signature frayed trim and thigh-high hem length. This frayed denim mini dress does not disappoint. Sneakers or heels. Your call!

Gorgeous gray suede ankle boots from Lanvin. Super functional for day-to-day life. These could easily replace my go tos!
