As I start to think about wardrobe updates for fall, I can’t help but feel a little giddy about layering and leather. So, let’s consider these must-haves a sneak peek for fall – and then get back to enjoying the warm weather while it’s still here. 


1. Hermès Canvas Backpack. Give a nod to the 90s with this classic backpack. Don’t worry – “No white after Labor Day” no longer applies.
2. J Brand Leather Pants. When it comes to leather skinnies, no one does it better than this label. Opt for a blush hue to soften the look.
3. Bucco “Bammy” Sneaker. Borrow from the street-style stars and try slip-on sneakers. This snakeskin pair will go with anything.
4. Andrew Marc Shearling & Fur Jacket. Own the shearling trend in this luxe – and uber-cool – number.
5. IPPOLITA “Modern Rock Candy” Drop Earrings. These gold geometric earrings are seasonless, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t the ideal jewelry-box addition for fall.

Some people wear a specific jacket for each season. (Booooring.) Me, on the other hand? I subscribe to the wear-a-new-jacket-every-day method. Yes. Each and every topper has its very own ideal temperature. But don’t feel restricted by these three standbys. Each represents a category all its own.

From a gown fit for bouts of snowfall and sunshine to putting off mopping for just a bit longer, here’s a look at all the lovely things I’ll be snapping up off of Rue this week.

1. TUMI rolling duffel. Sure, I’ll miss my old, worn-in duffel bag. What I won’t miss though? The muscle aches that came from lugging said bag around – making this slick little wheeled number a travel dream come true. Our Tumi Luggage & Outerwear Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET. 

2. Andrew Marc coat. Sheen + texture = one sophisticated parka. (How many puffy numbers can make that claim?) Our Andrew Marc Women’s Dresses & Outerwear Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET.

3. Carmen Marc Valvo gown. It’s not often that a super-glam silk gown can hold its own winter through summer. When you stumble across one that does, though, three words: Snap. It. Up. Our Carmen Marc Valvo Boutique opens Sunday, December 2, at 11AM ET.

4. Entryways doormat. Mopping? Admittedly, not one of my strongest suits. With this tough doormat at the threshold of my abode, though, a winter of salty boots will have nothing on the floors. Our A Warm Welcome: Mats for the Front Door Boutique opens Monday, December 3, at 11AM ET.
