Hot Shop: February 27, 2012

With today being bright, sunny and warm (relatively, of course), it got us thinking about spring and the essentials we’d love to own this year as we soar through the season in style. We believe in treating ourselves once in awhile and splurging (or investing) in a few fresh staple pieces like shoes and bags.

For the ladies, we love:

Tory Burch Robinson Double Zip Tote in Blood Orange
Bright, bold oranges are everywhere this spring, including handbags. We like to have more fun with our bags in the sunnier months and this is the perfect daytime carry-all for the busy female young professional; it can take you to the office, through multiple meetings and into the evening for an after-work dinner date or drinks with co-workers. The perfectly-sized bag features plenty of pockets and zip compartments for organizing essentials, as well as a comfortable, adjustable and removable shoulder strap with a snap closure at the top. Named after Tory’s parents, the Robinson Tot, is made from the highest quality scratch-resistant Italian leather.

Price: $600

For the guys, we love:

Iconic Suede Gommini Loafers with Tonal Ties in Blue
We love Tod’s shoes for men, especially in the summer time. Most guys are probably pretty sick of the typical black or brown shoes they’ve been sporting the entire winter; these shoes provide a welcomed pop of color, and can jazz up an otherwise simple-casual outfit of beige skinny pants or khaki shorts and a crisp white t-shirt.  These loafers are perfect for kicking it around the city, having a few casual drinks on patios, strolling through streets on your European vacation or taking advantage of the summer breeze on a boat among friends. Plus, with Tod’s quality, these loafers are guaranteed to last into your winter getaway.
