Serena and Dan’s Summer romance has since sizzled, but my love for her Rebecca Minkoff bag is still going strong. The mint color has a subtlety rich tone and it’s such a fun, unexpected choice for Autumn. Though this particular bag remains my favorite, I’ve found a couple more that are suitable alternatives for a bit less money.
Rebecca Minkoff has a knack for intricate detailing and her clutch, with an amazingly long (detachable) chain strap and gold hardware, certainly lives up to her reputation.
This Sabina convertible leather bag embodies such a rocker feel, but in this lagoon-hue, it creates an almost ethereal element.
I’ve been living in my Tory Burch flats for over two years now, but I still can’t get enough of her iconic emblem, which has been perfectly placed on this hunter green crinkle patent logo clutch.

After many hours spent watching Carrie Bradshaw at her desk, you would think I would have taken notice of all of the little details that make her workspace so special. The patterned curtains, framed pictures and delicate lamp all add an element of style, while maintaining a sleek and functional area to work. I figure since I spend the majority of my time in front of a computer, the least I can do is create a space that’s inviting and uniquely my own. My desks (both at home and at my office) are hopelessly disorganized and lack any sort of personality, which is why I turned to See Jane Work for some simple steps to make a difference.
My knack for filing is non-existent, but I think these polka dot subject dividers in Pumpkin would surely inspire me to at least make an effort from time to time.
For those of you who share my affinity for losing things, you’ll appreciate the idea of having a plentiful stash of pencils that coordinate in a soothing shade of white.
I have one too many drawers in my desk dedicated to all things ‘miscellaneous,’ so this inbox tray is a pretty reminder to get organized.

One of the biggest joys of dressing for cooler weather is the abundance of wonderful textures. Yesterday marked the first day of Fall and I could barely wait to comb through my bin filled with fringed scarves, knit hats and thick tights. Since I knew that the brisk morning would only last for several hours before substantially heating up, I opted for my checkered mustard scarf that’s still relatively light with opaque, black tights.

Trends almost always emerge on the red carpet and last night’s Emmy Awards were no exception. Glittery gowns stole the show and inspired my love for all things shiny and metallic. Here are some fun options that will be sure to add a bit of sparkle to any outfit.
Fendi’s silver and cream scarf is a glamorous option for throwing on over a dress at night. I love its gentle sheen and subtle logo pattern that can only be seen if you get up close.
J.Crew’s metallic herringbone scooter mini is the perfect skirt for Autumn with its frosted color and over sized buttons. Worn with a simple top, I’d pair it with an ornate, jeweled necklace in a bright color.
Marc by Marc Jacobs’s metal check wristlet is such an edgy departure from the designer’s typical preppy style. The hardware and tiny mirrors are kind of out there, but it would make a great clutch for a night out on the town.
