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.

A shoe that will take you far.

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.

I don't typically go gaga for checks.

However, Theory gets an A+ for this fall look.

Theory is known for its impeccable tailoring. And the Laurent top is precision, with contouring seams made to flatter. Woven with a Prince of Wales check, this stretch wool piece has handy zipped pockets and is unlined for lightness. Paired with Theory's Demitria pants, and you have simple perfection.

The morning chill was delicious, wasn't it? It made me long for slippers.

Hands down, my favorite gift from my family every Christmas is slippers. Why? Well, that's simple, my feet are always cold. Some years I experiment with new brands. However, I am mostly boring and stick with the same down slippers, as they are a sure thing.

Look at these, though! Sorel, you have me tempted. A slipper that I can actually walk outside in. There are a couple versions, too, in addition to color options. Premium suede upper, rich felt vamp, cozy fleece and vulcanized rubber outsole whose herringbone design delivers traction on wet surfaces.

Oh yes!

Oh, how I wish it were that time.

Time to wear weighted elegance, in the form of this gorgeous Gucci wool natté coat.

I am a sucker for ivory coats, first off. Let's add to that, Italian made. And finally, the fact that this style is timeless with the double-breasted closure and notched lapels. Covered buttons, to boot!

While the heat is still lingering, my mind is elsewhere, waiting to embrace the cooler months. Yes, even the frigid temps on the northern lacrosse fields. After all, that means I get to layer!
