1. Block out those rays this fine sunshine day with these Leopard Print Round Sunglasses. You’re gonna want these fun guys at the ready while stepping out this summer. (forever21.com)

2. I’m fascinated by how something so simple can be so elegant. I’m referring to these subdued Schutz Pearled Darussa Flats, which look like they’re made for royalty. It all makes sense when you consider Schutz’s mantra, “living for pleasure.” (anthropologie.com)

3. Turn the arguably worst day of the week into a party with this dashing Cheap Monday Tee Dress. No frills here. Just a wide-rib mock neck and straight, loose fit. Just use the signature print as motivation for all those checks you’re gonna be cashing in the future. (luckyshops.com)

4. Whether you’re ready to hit the gym or hit the club, this Banded Crop Tank in rusted burgundy will make you look like a superstar. I’m thinking dual-textured moto pants to bring the look full circle. (madewell.com)

5. Keep it carefree with these darling ASOS Pleated Culottes In Mono Chevron Print. (asos.com)

1. I spy with my little eye this wildly eccentric Essentiel Perspex Eye Clutch. The streets will definitely be watching with this clutch in your hands or on your shoulder. And while they’re looking, give them something to talk about by pairing this purse with a fierce outfit. (luisaviaroma.com)

2. Friends! Spring has finally arrived! Not only are these Fine Dining Heels in Watercolor perfectly crafted, they possess the essence of springtime: fresh, bright, vibrant, energizing. These fun numbers deserve more than fine dining, as their name suggests. (modcloth.com)

3. Isn’t she a beaut? The model is cute, but I’m talking about this stunning True Violet Structured Painted Floral Print Maxi Dress With High Low Hem. I could even see this as a wedding dress for an alternative bride. (asos.com)

4. Long live the Dancing Girls emoji! Now my favorite text-messaging symbol can be used to add some flair to any and all of my outfits. Thanks, Valley Cruise for bringing this darling BFF Lapel Pin into my life. May we never forget the time my pal, Zita, and I dressed like these quirky characters for 826LA’s Dance-a-thon. (valleycruisepress.com)

5. I’m feeling the breezy, springtime vibes from this bright yellow Draped Dress. It makes me wanna soak up the sunshine, which has been plentiful, as of late. Yes, Lord! (mango.com)

1. Guys, I’m pretty sure a future-seeing Madonna was singing about this Oversized Scarf in Grid Check when she said, “Gonna dress you up in my love … all over your body … from your head down to your toes.” This scarf is guaranteed to keep you warm and stylin’, and so my love of excessively large accessories continues. (asos.com)

2. This Organic Foldover Clutch is large enough to keep all your essentials, only in a portable, on-the-go-friendly container. It’s hand-dyed and “with use, age and adventures, this bag will only get better.” (meusshop.com)

3. Bugs Bunny, pink and polka dots sounds outrageous, but this Lazy Oaf x Looney Tunes Tuxedo Bugs Dress just works. It doesn’t hurt that our favorite cartoon rabbit looks dapper as all get-out, might I add. (lazyoaf.com)

4. This sleek, deep V-neck Back at It Again Navy Blue Romper disguises as a dress to the untrained eye. What you can’t see from the front is that this playsuit it backless. Throw this saucy number on for Valentine’s Day and have him in the palm of your hand. (lulus.com)

5. As a thriftanista, I’m always looking for the rarest of finds. Look no further than this Vintage 1980s Trippy Floral Colorful Abstract Southwestern Medium Knit Sweater from Brooklyn Voyager (where Brooklyn at?!). Like with most authentic vintage pieces, there’s only one available, but you’re in good hands with this online shop, which has ample awesomeness to be discovered. (brooklynvoyager.com)

1. This Suede Flap Clutch has really got a hold on me, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. There’s something dramatic and elegant about the texture. Elevate your outfit by taking off the detachable wristlet. (mango.com)

2. I’ve done the math and these Geo Print Pointed Flat Pumps are definite keepers. Pair these with a simple shift dress and let these shoes do all the speaking for your style. (dorothyperkins.com)

3. Shimmy, shimmy cocoa pop! This Scarlet Shimmy Dress by Lovers + Friends is as darling as it is delicate. Plus, the cut-out back with a button closure is a sweet secret. (revolveclothing.com)

4. Piperlime’s Lucy Paris Satin Skirt looks like a work of art. It’s as if the designer took paint to this wearable canvas and made a masterpiece. This skirt would be perfect for a day-to-night outing. And yay for the front pockets! (piperlime.com)

5. But let’s not forget that we’re in the middle of winter. Don’t let the break from the cold fool ya. You’re gonna need to bundle up soon, and I call dibs on this ASOS PETITE Cocoon Coat in Textured Wool! The mint color leaves a mark as the perfect blend of comfort, style and function. (asos.com)

1. The Flud Duffle (Black Croco) makes me want to go on a trip just so I can look fly en route. Now that’s what I mean by traveling in style. (fludwatches.com)

2. I appreciate the playfulness of this Triple Triangle Rhinestone Necklace. Don’t let the dainty size fool you — this piece packs a stylish punch. (urbanoutfitters.com)

3. Go on and dust your shoulders off, ladies! As a matter of fact, go ahead and bedazzle them. That had to have been the line of thinking when the designers of Wallis Fashion crafted this Petite Black Embellished Jumpsuit. Or at least that’s how it goes in my head. (wallisfashion.com)

4. These White Pockets Floral Casual Pants are just screaming to be paired with a brightly colored blazer. I personally would go with a mustard yellow — my favorite fall hue. Close second is burnt orange, in case you were wondering. (sheinside.com)

5. Speaking of color, I am enamored with the rich shade of these grape-colored Luxe Ankle Grazer Cigarette Pants. These trousers are also the perfect length for showing off your snazziest shoes. (asos.com)

1. Come sail away with me and this luxurious World Traveler Eternity Scarf. I must say, this darling accessory makes the transition from summer to fall a smooth one. (urbanoutfitters.com)

2. Alice and Olivia’s Piano Bag infuses playfulness and style in this über-unique across-the-body bag. I’ve got the sudden urge to play “Chopsticks,” by the way. (aliceandolivia.com)

3. The label True Decadence at ASOS says it all. This True Decadence Tall Strappy Colour Block Jumpsuit is just that: truly decadent! So many styling options flood my mind when I see something as polished and charming as this. (asos.com)

4. I say “faux sho” to this Faux Leather Pleated Skirt from Forever 21. Someone get me a knit top and a red lip STAT! (forever21.com)

5. Doesn’t this sweater remind you that it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood? Well, don’t mind me while I get my Mr. Rogers on in this preppy BB Dakota Galena Cardigan. Cute sweaters like this soften the blow that fall will be upon us in no time. (shopbop.com)

1. Bap! Kapow! Zzzzzwap! That’s what comes to mind when I see this powerful Acid Trekkie Collar necklace. Kinda reminds me of those zany sound effects from the original “Batman” TV show. I know you see it, too! (baublebar.com)

2. This Snake Panel Cross Body Bag with Square Lock is like a cool breeze on a hot summer day. Drink it in. (asos.com)

3. Singing “Oh! Oh, Sheila! Let me love you till the morning comes” is protocol when you’re wearing these sassy Sheila heels in Snow Dark Seafoam. (solesociety.com)

4. Pattern on pattern never looked as lovely as it does in this très chic Thebe Romper from Anthropologie. The bow-tie waist gives it an extra dose of darling. (anthropologie.com)

5. No need to be blue when you’ve got black brushstrokes all over this Sweet Jane Dress. (pixiemarket.com)

1. Step out in your sunshiny-best tube dress with these Emily Platform Wedge Sandals in aqua and tan. (shopdailychic.com)

2. Make moves like a boss — albeit a trendy, forward-thinking one — with this OWL Windsor Animal Wrap Around Watch adorning your wrist. (asos.com)

3. Welcome to the jungle, where fun and games surely await the gal who’s bold enough to don this matching tropical-print ensemble. Obey calls it The Echo Mountain Sweatshirt and The Lola Sweatshort in Tropical, but I call it “boom” and “pow.” (karmaloop.com)

4. You definitely won’t be blue in this red and white Boyfriend Mini tee dress. Looks like I’ve found my Fourth of July ‘fit! (needsupply.com)

5. Rock these Metallic Champagne Ribbon Tie Harem Pants with some wedges, a loosely draped cardigan and a statement necklace, like so, and you’ve got a brilliant evening look. (shoppublik.com)
