F/W 2014 Essentials

There is something about the temperatures dropping and daylight becoming more and more scarce each day that makes me want to pile on as many layers as possible… Which also leads to wanting shop as much as possible for all of the cold-weather necessities.  There are certain pieces that are so covetable this season, I had to share them with you.  To ensure you are not left out in the cold (wink), grab these winter-time essentials to have ready at a moment’s notice!

SJP Fall 2014 at Nordstrom

When Carrie Bradshaw Sarah Jessica Parker introduced her brand new shoe line last season at Nordstrom, it was a Sex & the City/shoe lover’s dream come true.   Ms. ‘I’ve spent $40,000 on shoes and I have no place to live? I will literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes!’ did not disappoint in the designing department.  However, her SJP Fall 2014 collection has me gasping for air (and searching for some extra cash)!  I have to get my feet in those leather booties and semi-caged knee-high boots!  In addition to footwear, Parker also included brand new handbags.  The bags aren’t my favorite but I’m sure that’s only because the shoes completely steal the show.  See some of my favorites below and find the complete collection at Nordstrom.

Let Your Feet Shine!

While statements are usually made by our clothing, why not let our feet do the talking for a chance!  Shoes are usually the last pieces of our ensemble to be slipped on but now they are taking charge of the rest of what we adorn ourselves with thanks to shiny shoes!  The high shine trend which I’ve spoken about before, has traveled it’s way down to our feet and I absolutely love it!  The metallic gold shine will brighten up any dreary day and remind us of summer sun!  The shiny glamour can be subtle with just a gold capped toe or heel OR it can be a completely gold shiny wedge or bootie.  Either way, this trend will cast eyes downward very quickly and leave everyone drooling over our gorgeous footwear!   Here are some of my favorites from Net-A-Porter!
