Sweater weather is in full swing, and this Fancy Things Friday highlights a few you gems you definitely won’t want to miss:

1. I almost forgot we were in the dead of winter when I saw these whimsical Make Great Rides Flats. They make me want to put on some petal pushers or a maxi skirt and ride my bike through the park on a breezy spring day. Who am I kidding? Alright, I do live in SoCal, so that scenario is possible pretty much 365. But these retro flats would be lovely all year long! (modcloth.com)

2. Can’t commit to one color for your next go-to bag? Look no further than this luxurious Reversible Vegan Crossbody Bag in Kelly/Taupe, which dares to be different by giving a girl like you options. Other color vibrant combos include Ivory/Snake, Red/Nude, Brown/Nude, Blush/Taupe, Emerald/Tan and Tan/Grey. (freepeople.com)

3. Way to give the blast from the past “dickey” a new lease on life, Free People. Meet the Mock Shirt With Scallop Collar — the dickey’s much cooler, chicer cousin. Accentuate those curves by layering on a statement necklace that peeks out from beneath the collar. (cosstores.com)

4. Sometimes less is more, and this Ultra Long Zip Hoodie has certainly gotten the memo. It’s basic but bold. The length sets it apart from your run-of-the-mill hoodie, which comes with front pockets and a drawstring hood. This sweater also comes in black, which gives me an indisputable Yeezy vibe. Bring on the rain! I know Monki’s got me covered with this daring and functional piece. (monki.com)

5. Gals, I like big bows and I cannot lie. This you already know, but this NEHU Bow Detail Ribbed Jumper by Ted Baker made me squeal with delight at first glance. I also appreciate the unexpected choice of placing the ostentatious embellishment on the shoulder. (tedbaker.com)

Get into an all-new batch of must-have goods and wares in this week’s edition of Fancy Things Friday:

1. Cross my heart, hope to buy! Feast your eyes on this stately Oval Crossbody Bag from Zara. I’m digging the two-toned color palette. Go rogue and remove the shoulder strap — it’s equally fashionable. (zara.com)

2. Circle up, ladies! Keep those UV rays at bay in style. These Round Sunglasses have a muted, light-beige tortoise-esque shell frame and a purple-ish tint. I suspect that these shades will work nicely well into fall. (hm.com)

3. Pixie Market presents femininity at its finest with this darling Pink Off the Shoulder Shirt. I could go a number of ways with this one, but I’m torn between stepping out with it in a pair of slim cigarette plants or a svelt pencil skirt. (pixiemarket.com)

4. Splurge a little on this dazzling Short Sleeve Wrap Dress by COS. The speckled print gives off a quintessentially California girl vibe, and the embossed, textured fabric keeps things interesting. Go against the grain and wear this piece open like a jacket, or buttoned and layered with a collared shirt — oooooh! or a turtleneck. (cosstores.com)

5. OK, ladies, now let’s peep Refomation. No, seriously. You’re gonna fall head over heels for this delicate Peggy Top in Blush. The embroidery floral detail pops against the lightweight silk charmeuse fabric. It’s the perfect blouse for the girl’s girl. (thereformation.com)

1. Cue up “America the Beautiful” and throw on your best red sundress, ’cause these nautical Striped Slip-On Shoes will have you in a Fourth of July state of mind. But they’ll look just as lovely with some high-waisted shorts or a denim skirt. (cosstores.com)

2. Sometimes less is more. Raise the bar with these dainty Small Bar Studs, which can be worn every day. (stories.com)

3. If these tropical-themed Pari Print High Waisted Shorts don’t get you jazzed about summer, I don’t know what will. These shorts were made for lounging cabana-side with a piña colada in hand. (whistles.com)

4. Just as the picture suggests, this Clayton Dress by Babaton is easy and breezy! Teal is such a flattering color, and I’m not ashamed to admit that my obsession with it just won’t go away. This little number is simple enough to wear with some flats around the office, but has just enough pizzaz to dress up with some strappy heels and a textured clutch. (aritzia.com)

5. This midi Patterned Skirt by H&M brings a ton of color and flair that you don’t need to add much else to your outfit. A plain white or black tee with some sandals will do the trick. (hm.com)

1. Polka dots make me happy. These Dots Mid Top kicks via BucketFeet would definitely put a little spring — heck, perhaps a kick ball change or two — in my step! These fun ones were designed by Carrie Van Hise, a textile artist based in NYC and Barcelona. (bucketfeet.com)

2. I feel like me and Kendra Dandy, the innovative mastermind behind Bouffants & Broken Hearts, are kindred spirits. Her work just speaks to me. I was so excited to discover that some of her prints are available in scarf form from Printed Village. Trust me. They’re all dope. But the Citrus and Stripes scarf is ah-mazing, perfect for adding some pizzazz to an outfit or spicing up a handbag. So many possibilities! And don’t even get me started on headwrap options. (printedvillage.com)

3. Who you know fresher than Joe? Riddle me that. This Stripe Flare Dress from Joe Fresh has a modern classic feel, thanks to the super flattering silhouette. Hey, sometimes less is more. (joefresh.com)

4. By now, you may have noticed a common theme in this week’s post: patterns/prints. While the other items have bold patterns, this Wilfred Lavande Dress in Heather Black has a more subtle print. More specifically, it’s a softly structured Italian ponte fabric with stretch. Get ready to turns heads with this spicy ensemble. Looking at you, deep V-neckline and exposed front zipper. (aritzia.com)

5. This Fine-Knit Printed Jumper from Cos speaks for itself. You don’t need to add much more to make it pop, which makes it the ideal casual Friday or lazy Sunday sweater. (cosstores.com)
