Summer may be coming to a close, but there are still a few beach days to enjoy before sweater season starts. To maximize what’s left of the warm weather, we asked Maureen to spill the contents of her bag and clue us in on what items she considers summer necessities.

The funny looking Jodhpur pant is all over this year’s runway and leggings have become a bit too …well, blah. At last, the perfect in-between that has it all, the J.Crew Jersey-knit (Ponte) pant. Then in good fashion, Vogue features this sleek black ankle pant and there it appears– the dreaded waiting list. I hopped online first thing in September (ordering 2 sizes to make sure at least 1 fit) and finally on the last day of November they arrived. It was well worth the wait they are everything I wanted them to be: slim, midweight, yoke details on the inside of the legs, and the perfect gold exposed-zipper up the back. They look amazing day or night, with a patent flat or a 4-inch pump. I wore mine out on the town with a hammered satin top, over-sized jewels, and killer heels. Their ease and versatility dub them this season’s must have staple!
