When I purchase a new item, I know it’s a keeper when I start daydreaming about the places I want to wear it. I’m not talking about everyday locations, like work, or even special occasions, like a wedding. Instead, I find myself itching to book a plane ticket to debut the piece in a different city or country. This coat is destined for London, which isn’t a surprise given that Tory Burch’s inspiration for her 2015 pre-fall collection was the English city circa 1960. Nestled next to the coat in my suitcase would be the ultra comfortable Naturalizer “Jarrett” ankle boots. You already know how much I love flats, but sometimes a standard-issue ballet flat seems a little dull. These ankle boots have just enough attitude to make an outfit more interesting without sacrificing comfort. They run a hair large, which I didn’t mind. I’ll appreciate the extra room for tights and cozy socks once the mercury dips.
