7 Things I Want Right Now [in oxblood]. 
[Disclaimer: This brownish red the season’s hottest color. You may also see it referred to as wine or burgundy. Oxblood is my personal favorite.]
Rebecca Minkoff Large Affair bag —I already own 2 amazing RM bags -call me a Minkette!- and I cannot get enough. This quilted stunner is the perfect size for daily essentials, but looks amazing as an evening bag as well. The Italian leather is so buttery soft and the shape is timeless.
Alexander Wang booties —A slip on bootie is the most versatile shoe in a Fall wardrobe. I guarantee you will not run out of ways to wear them, whether with a dress, skinny jeans, maxi skirt, or wide leg pants.
All Saints leather moto jacket —A motorcycle jacket is a great change-up to a blazer, and quite a bit warmer. I really like to juxtapose a style like this one with a floaty dress to toughen up a floral print, but it looks just as polished over a slouchy sweater and black jeans. 
Covergirl lipstick in Euphoria —I love the way a berry lip looks on anyone, and this formula glides on like butter. I apply it straight from the tube, then smudge it with my finger for a berry-stained look that is on point for Fall. 
RGB nail polish  — One of my favorite “winter” polishes as a kid was Brucci Black Cherry— stolen from my mom’s collection, of course. This polish from RBG is the identical twin to my favorite shade and it’s oh-so-chic on super short, square nails.
Forever 21 Patent skinny belt — A great way to try “oxblood” for only a few dollars: belt a blazer, a dress, or a cardigan with this stylish little piece. 
Minnetonka moccasin —I would need more hands to count the City Girls I’ve seen in NYC subways switching from moccasins to stilettos before work. They are super comfy, don’t compromise your outfit the way most sneakers do, and can get stuffed into your purse without taking up too much space. I’ve been wearing Minnetonkas since I was 2, and this color update for Fall is just what I’ve been looking for.

One Sweater. 4 Ways.
A striped crew-neck sweater is a great basic. Go for something budget-friendly in cotton, or splurge on cashmere. Either way, you can wear it with jeans or a pencil skirt, and look equally polished. Here are four ways to style this simple piece from work to weekend. 
Work: Red wide leg pants, Snakeskin pumps, Stone statement necklace. 
Weekend: Army jacket, Dark wash skinny jeans, Slip on booties. 
Date: Slim cropped trousers, Ankle-strap pumps, Stack of rings, Tassel earrings.
Lunch: Knee length skirt, Braided wrap belt, Orange textured flats.

Sun Protection.

With all of the stylish sunglasses available throughout the summer and magazine articles telling us “SPF! SPF!,” we can forget to cover our head of hair. 

I love the juxtaposition of how a woman in a hat or head scarf looks effortlessly timeless and a teensy bit retro. I say, this look for summer will always be in style.
