I'm currently on my way to San Francisco for work (and some R&R with family out west), and one of my must-have items to wear when meeting clients is a crisp, tailored, black blazer. One of my favorites is this one from Rag & Bone, purchased last year. Black makes a strong and powerful statement, and is always in style. With this outfit, I was so happy to be able to pull out the leather pants, as they are also a necessity for the fall and winter months to elevate anything you pair them with, such as a white tee and blazer. These Zara mules are new for the season, and I am quite aware that they are a budget-friendly version of the omnipresent Gucci ones. They are so comfortable, and are great for reinvigorating your closet when you feel like you're stuck in a shoe rut.
