puffercoatloveThis is not your typical puffer coat.

No kidding. And thank goodness, right?

Donna Karan understands that women want warmth — and style! I absolutely love everything about this chic coat. Oversized spread collar. Open front. Long sleeves. And long length.

This is what I want to hang out in on the weekends this winter. It looks fabulous over dressy and casual ensembles. 

It's time to rethink the puffer coat.

I am so ready. For sweaters. Big time.

Thankfully, this fall is all about the ease of the sweater. And I have picked out three simple, yet chic, styles to make day-to-day dressing a snap. I am loving this high neck McQ Alexander McQueen oversized ribbed felt-wool sweater. Paired with just about anything, and it's cool. The Rachel cotton-jersey sweater by Karl Lagerfeld is playful and comfy. And Isabel Marant's chunky Sao alpaca and wool-blend sweater brings warmth and coziness on those chilly days.

Cooler weather, please come visit!

I know. I am always talking about shoes.

Honestly, I can't help it. Shoes complete the outfit. They make the outfit. And sometimes, they are the outfit.

And with these insanely fabulous kickin' heels, how can I not talk about shoes? The more I stare at these beauties, the more I think I need all three. How could I possibly choose just one?

Some things make more of an impact as you make an exit. Enter: MSGM fringed love jacket.

This swinging, fringed jacket is printed with bright red lips at the back and the word "Love" along the sleeves. It is super fun, spiked with plenty of attitude. Italian designer Massimo Giorgetti was a genius incorporating graphics into what would otherwise be viewed as a fancy jacket. This can be worn any time, anywhere.

I can't help it. I'm ready for fall.

Aside from the fabulous boots that are making their way to a store near you, I have my eye on the sweet and street chic. Yes! Simple, easy goodness. Bring on fall.
