For those days when I’m running to meetings around town, I know I need a polished look, and I tend to think: layers. You already know that I’m always one to reach for wardrobe staples for comfort and style I can rely on time and time again. So when I want to do a little layering, I approach it simply as updating wardrobe staples with carefully-curated accessories. That could mean adding a cardigan, a silk scarf, a statement necklace, a belt, you name it. 

I’ll start with a staple like this grey sweater paired with my favorite black distressed jeans and my killer grey suede Manolos (so worth the spurge ps). And to accessorize, I’ll add the softest cardigan in my closet right now, along with an old favorite scarf tied to a new favorite navy satchel handbag and a funky cool statement necklace from Gunner & Lux.  All in all, this look is perfectly polished, comfortable, and most importantly me.  Truly, MKR

P.S. If you’re all heart eyes for my gorgeous navy handbag too, it’s your lucky Monday! We’re kicking the week off right with a MAJOR giveaway with our friends at Zac Posen. We’ll be giving away a bag of your choice from the Zac Zac Posen Fall Collection (!!!); simply enter the handbag giveaway via the Rafflecopter below. Winner will be notified next week, so in the meantime, take a peek at a few of our favorite picks here, here, here and here

P.P.S. The sweater, along with the cardigan pictured above are 40% off right now at LOFT (along with everything else at 40% off, and I mean everything else)! xo
