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.View comments)
Kate Spade’s holiday collection was released last week and, as always, everything is so darn cute. There’s a champagne bottle coin purse, a floral-print scarf I’ll probably buy, and this unbelievable necklace. One look at the rhinestone ribbon put me in a festive mood. Bring on the egg nog, tinsel and Bing Crosby, STAT.(View comments)
I’m a pretty firm believer that if you wore a trend the first time it was popular, you should probably stay away from it the second time around. It’s why I’ve been hesitant to wear a nameplate necklace again. No, I didn’t wear one when Carrie Bradshaw made it popular. I wore one when I was seven years old. I found the little 14” necklace when I was packing up my childhood bedroom and, with all sentimental pieces, I tucked it away for safekeeping.
When oNecklace asked if I’d be interested in featuring one of their name necklaces, I couldn’t bring myself to wear my first name on my collarbone again. Instead, I opted for a cheeky “Bonjour” necklace in the Alegro script.View comments)
The fall colors here are in full force, but the peak season won’t last much longer. This Elizabeth Cole necklace is a lovely way to enjoy the season’s fiery hues as long as possible.(View comments)
Pairing jade with black is one of my favorite color combinations. Add in a bit of mint and it’s even prettier, especially at a price point of just $25. This necklace will look lovely with summer’s palm prints.(View comments)

Every breezy summer dress looks best paired with a large piece of jewelry, like this blue moon-shaped by Kelly Wearstler.(View comments)
I purchased this quirky banana-print top moments after featuring it in last week’s "Color Crush." It’s scheduled to ship at the beginning of June, but I’m already dreaming of ways to wear it that are inspired by colorful Palm Beach.View comments)
This feature is dangerously close to becoming the “Necklace of the Week,” but can you really blame me when there are so many stunning options? This week’s bauble is one of my favorites from designer Gerard Yosca. You’ll get to know more about him in an upcoming “Behind the Baubles” and have a chance to win one of his beautiful designs.
