WHAT: Auden Star Bib Necklace
WHY: Escaping to the country to gaze at the stars is a viable option on a Friday eve, but when you’re craving luminosity on an overcast Monday afternoon, reach for this Auden necklace instead. The five-pointers will encircle your neck and hang low on your décolletage, transforming even a basic white button down into a glamorous staple. Otherwise, accessorize light with this bauble; pairing it with a matte red lip is about all this sparkler needs.

WHAT: KARA Maroon Shearling Backpack
WHY: Let's be honest, purses are pretty, but sometimes your shoulders need a bit of a break. Luckily, KARA's offerings include a lambskin and leather backpack to ease the load. In addition to the main pouch and back pocket, there are two extra zipper pockets, just asking you to go ahead and pack that extra book and your favorite pair of sunglasses...and three extra lipsticks...and maybe a petite snack. If you've got the room, use it wisely!

WHAT: Aldo Frida Clog
WHY: Aldo is giving us spring fever with a retooled pair of old-school kicks, aka the Frida clog. Inspired by the newly empowered chicettes in shifts of the ‘70s, Aldo Bensadoun (otherwise known as Mr. B) wanted to capture the times. In 2014, they’ve updated the look with luxe leather, available in brown and black, with studded wooden soles, and we’re feeling liberated all over again! Now if only the weather would catch up...
