*I bought these in a textured leather last year. They run true to size and are incredibly comfortable.
**This suede clutch is genuine leather and only $75!
There’s more to love:
I may not be ready to wear fall clothing just yet, but I am eager to plan next season’s purchases. I mentioned that I was trying to stay away from impulsive purchases, but this shirtdress stole my heart. I love a loose silhouette for long days at the office and the tie neck detail is just the right amount of the ’70s trend. I’m also on the lookout for a pair of ankle boots and flared jeans (although, I’m almost positive I have a pair identical to these somewhere in my closet). Here’s what else I have my eye on:
While this getup is quintessentially fall, it’s completely out of my comfort zone. I’m not actually a fan of jeans (or pants in general) and I’ve never worn a pair of riding boots before Naturalizer reached out to me with the opportunity to try a pair of their shoes.
I’ve always wanted to purchase a pair of riding boots, but it’s a discouraging process when you have wide (ahem, “shapely”) calves. Most options are matronly or have a bizarre v-shaped inset of elastic that looks like an afterthought. I appreciate that the elastic on this Naturalizer pair is thoughtfully incorporated into the design and is partially hidden by leather buckles. It allows for a comfortable fit without sacrificing style.
Naturalizer has a reputation for comfortable shoes and these are no exception. (No breaking in period!) I planned to wear them for a day at a state park, but they were just as comfy for what those plans morphed into: a stop at the New Glarus brewery and an afternoon spent browsing small town gift shops.

Goodness, that’s a lot of gifted items in one post. I only accept items that I adore, so they’re in heavy rotation!
The crisp autumn air calls for none other than a gorgeous Leslie Tessler cape (and perhaps a mug of hot apple cider). Founded in 2011, Leslie incorporates Peruvian alpaca, Italian cashmere, and French woven silk into her line to create luxurious, heirloom-quality creations. I fancy the fuchsia cape to wear with matching lipstick and leopard flats (what else?), but I urge you to explore the rest of her collection online.
