Fashion Essentials from a San Francisco Blogger
Kelli Ryder, associate editor at Rue Magazine and the blogger behind Leopard and Lavender, shares her favorite winter picks
My dream boots! I love the higher-cut at the ankle and the strap detailing. These would be perfect with tights and a short dress or with your favorite destroyed denim.
2.Truffle Pouch, $38
I am all about organization, and Truffle pouches make it easy! I can sort everything in my bag and still easily find things when I need them. Plus, it makes it a breeze to swap purses.
3.Tatcha Brightening Serum, $150
This serum is an essential addition to my beauty routine. It leaves my skin feeling radiant and healthy.
4.Cuyana Alpaca Boucle Cape, $120
I'm obsessed with everything about this. For the price, it doesn't get any better. It feels like you're wrapped up in a blanket, but the end result is super chic.
5.Hope Shirt Dress, $316
Every closet needs a shirt dress. It can be dressed up or down and is a cool approach to the classic LBD.
6.Hanky Panky Signature Soft Cup Bra, $45
There is something to be said for luxurious undergarments. Hanky Panky is so comfortable and soft, and I love this color paired with a semi-sheer gray tee.
7.Cuyana Monogrammed Tote, $150
A staple in my daily routine! It's high quality yet affordable, and large enough to hold my laptop if I need to. I have never gotten so many compliments on a bag in my life!
8.Charlotte Olympia Cancer Slippers, $695
How adorable are these? I love the zodiac slippers -- and it helps that my sign is a cute crab. These are ideal for adding a little glamour to your everyday uniform.
9.T by Alexander Wang, $85
If I could get away with wearing a gray T-shirt everyday, I would. And T by Alexander Wang is super soft -- a requirement for my daily uniform.
10.Paige Skinny Jeans with Zipper Detail, $189
I wear jeans every single day which can get boring, so I really love the zipper detailing on these. Paige always fits like a dream and has held the ranks as one of my favorite denim lines.
11.Relwen Military Parka, $628
Living in San Francisco, I have to wear a jacket all year round. But once winter really arrives it's fun to break out the heavier coats. This one is a great take on the classic military jacket, and the fur hood is really cute and cozy!
12.Anthro Maricopa Wrap, $468
The colors and pattern on this wrap are to die for! I'm really into bold, bright pieces, and this one fits the bill.
