I gave the riding boots another whirl. This time, with an outfit that was much more me: a dress. I’m a convert. They’re just so freaking comfortable and much warmer than a pair of flats. (I’ve been missing out for years!) In other news, I purchased this J.Crew coat from Net-a-Porter during the summer sale for $150ish and it’s as cozy as a woolen blanket. When it goes on sale again, don’t be surprised if I add the heather peony version to my closet.

Perfect Pairings

I’d go so far as to say that a leather duffel bag was my best purchase of 2012. I chose this one and haven’t had to check baggage since. (It’s amazing how much you can pack into a weekender!)

Shop It: Tory Burch cosmetic case // See by Chloe weekender // Deux Lux weekender // Rebecca Minkoff cosmetic case

Color Crush: Oxblood

This color has gotten a bad rap for unappealing names like burgundy and (shudder) maroon. But it’s time to shake the stigma and embrace oxblood, a richly saturated hue that’s flattering on most complexions. If the color feels too serious for you, pair it with an unexpected jolt of hot pink.

Shop It: Vera Wang Lavender ankle boots // Topshop peplum top // Marc Jacobs pants // Leighelena bracelet // Stella McCartney sunglasses // Tory Burch gloves // Rebecca Minkoff bag // Le Metier de Beaute eyeshadow
