#1 Boots
Every Fall (and Winter) wardrobe should be equipped with a boot that can be versatile. When I use the word "versatile" I am referring to a piece that can take you from the office at work to volunteering in your community in the afternoon.

Naturalizer "Jaycee" is a solid leather, durable, and extremely comfortable boot. Naturalizer is praised for their ability to create any style shoe that will make you feel as if you are walking on clouds. The "Jaycee" comes in Banana Bread (a golden brown) and Black

#2 Handbag
I don't know a woman alive right now who doesn't love the style and quality of Michael Kor's designs.

His handbag's are what you will see on the arm of most women across the country. The "Jet Set" East/West Tote is a classic handbag that truly can be carried year round. It is also one of Michael Kors top sellers. At certain times of the year it is available in different solid bright colors suitable to the respective season and patterns. Here I feature it in "Black". It is sleek, the perfect size, and with enough room for you to carry all your essentials and then some.
