Simple Style: 6 November Staples

Simple style is about staple items that are worth the investment and pieces that make your daily dressing routines easier. My 6 picks for the month of November features pieces I have been eyeing and items I'm already beginning to wear everyday.


01.) Abi Ferrin Jan Cape:Abi Ferrin's tagline, "Made for you, not the hanger," says it all. The line contains versatile pieces—such as 5 way dresses and the featured Jan Cape—which can be worn day to night, in multiple ways, and fits a variety of body types. I love wrapping up in the Jan Cape at the office; feels like a cozy, updated shawl—minus the librarian look.

02.) ASOS, Warehouse Geo-Tribal Cape: For something just as comfy, but at a lower price-point—Asos Warehouse Geo-Tribal cape is a great alternative with a fun, youthful Aztec pattern.

03./04.) Boden Dresses: Not yet in my closet, Boden dresses are really more of a wish list item. I'm particularly drawn to their modest dresses, appropriate for any occasion—especially for Thanksgiving and meeting the beau's family for the first time! What do you think; polka dot or fly fishing pattern?


05.) No.6 Leather Clog: Taken from the traditional Swedish clog—made popular with well known brand Swedish Hasbeens—this pair of booties were a major investment for me. The wooden soles and real leather are made to last a lifetime and in all types of foul whether. Plus, these shoes can be dressed up with a frock or down with a pair of jeans! For an NYC girl whose main form of transportation is walking everywhere, it is an investment well spent.

06.) Dansko Leather Wedge Bootie: Yes, Dansko! Not the doctor/nurse/teacher/shoes that may immediately flash across your mind. As an alternative to swedish clogs, I was surprised to find Dansko made such cute wedge booties. Good for your feet and your wallet.
