Style: hoop purses | see all the picks at

Theory introduced a new handbag line last fall and the Whitney bag has become quite popular. What’s not to like about a bag that can hold all the essentials and can be worn as either a crossbody or a clutch that dangles off your wrist with its simplistic hoop detail? There have been quite a number of inspired designs as a result of this. I’ve rounded up some great options for you below!

Black hoop handle purse {comes in pink, too!}

Tan leather hoop pouch {4 colors}

Red ring convertible crossbody bag

Black embossed ring bag

Style: shearling | see all the picks at

If you’re anything like me, you usually “run cold” and are always bundling up. Shearling is a good option for keeping nice and warm, and also, fashionable! It seems since the introduction of Uggs, shearling has been here to stay and is being incorporated into almost every piece of clothing, accessory, or shoe that you can imagine. I’ve rounded up some fun finds that you can add to your winter wardrobe and keep toasty!


Shearling lined vest {50% off!}

Shearling fur purse with tassels {2 colors available}

Navy shearling collar top coat {33% off}

Grey shearling sweatshirt {comes in leopard print, too}

Blush pink shearling lined moto jacket

Shearling lined lace up bootie {50% off}

I’m loving the versatility of this dress to function as its intended form but also as a topper piece like I styled in this look. I opted to forgo the belt to give it a more casual feel. Pairing the olive green color with closet staples like black and white stripes and rich brown boots make it the perfect fall outfit.

Review: Tory Burch Jolie riding boots

review comment

Tory Burch Jolie riding boot review | see more at @toryburch #toryburch

I’ve been on a the hunt for a pair of brown riding boots since I did a boots purge at the end of last season. These Tory Burch “Jolie” riding boots looked promising in the pictures online and with an extra 30% off during the last ShopBop sale, I bit the bullet and ordered them.

First, let me tell you these boots are a heavy pebbled leather. The quality is very nice for the price – the leather is thick and it looks expensive. And, because the leather is thicker, there were no creases along the calf area (a major plus, especially if you’re going to invest in these!).

The gold Tory Burch logo is small and hits me a little higher than mid-calf.

The sole is well padded and you have the option of taking out the insole and adding your own. The stacked heel is low (~1″) which is great for comfort and will allow you to walk for long distances without any problems.

The full length hidden zipper and inner lining makes putting on and taking off the boot a breeze.

Overall, if you’re looking for an investment pair of leather riding boots, this boot is for you. It’s available in 2 colors (brown and black) and has a wide availability of sizes (5.5 – 11) with wide calf options. The design is classic and the quality is superb which means these boots will last for many seasons!

Measurements: shaft (height) 16″, calf circumference 15.5″, heel 1″.
