1. Have style, will travel! I’ve gotten a serious case of wanderlust, but since my bank account won’t permit me to see the world at the moment, this Alviero Martini 1a Classe Oblong Scarf will have to do. (yoox.com)

2. Mint, I just can’t quit you! This minty fresh Layla Clutch is a lovely sight to behold. (oliverbonas.com)

3. I say “heck yes!” to this Beccgirl Zip-Front Paisley-Patterned Playsuit from YesStyle. I refuse to believe that summer is coming to a close. Nope. Don’t wanna hear it. Therefore, I’ll wear my shorts and rompers like there’s no tomorrow. (yesstyle.com)

4. Since I have no need to back-to-school shop any more, I’ll just imagine I’m giving my 14-year-old self a gift. These Champion Polka Dot Lace kicks in raspberry pink get an A+ in my book. Also, Keds has free shipping and up to 50 percent off its summer styles. Get in there! (keds.com)

5. Greetings and salutations, Miss Selfridge (*does curtsy)! I’m way late to the party on this site, but I’m pleased to have met her acquaintance. First order of business: making this Pattern Skater Dress mine. (missselsfridge.com)

1. Take a walk on the wild side with these Canvas Lace-up Sneakers designed by Bad Panda for BucketFeet. The designer hails from Miami, and that fact is quite apparent with the ultra Miami-esque teal and pink color combo. (bucketfeet.com)

2. Darling Nikki comes out to play with this Nikki Top from Nasty Gal. This crop top with a lace floral overlay is bound to turn heads, with its navy hue popping out. Break out the stilettos for this one. (nastygal.com)

3. Party time! That’s exactly what comes to mind when I see this Doodle Print Sleeveless Dress. (chicnova.com)

4. Keep things simple with this Lightstitch Tunic Dress that’s light on the frills but heavy on the charm. (madewell.com)

5. What’s feisty but blue at the same time? That’s right. It’s these Suellen Cigarette Trousers in cobalt blue. There’s no shortage of occasions to wear these super versatile pants. (missguidedus.com)

1. Where Brooklyn at?! Fun fact: This Uzi Woven Tee, featured via clothing line Spiritual America, was made there. Wear this avant-garde black-and-white top and you’ll be right at home on the hipstery streets of New York. (spiritualameri.ca)

2. Skorts are back with a vengeance, in case you didn’t know. Sanctuary’s Soft Skort is like the older, sophisticated sister of the skort of yesteryear. But don’t get it twisted — she can still rage with the best of them. Live on the edge with this tribal-print high-waisted piece. (sanctuaryclothing.com)

3. Tell it like it is with this Jet’aime Necklace from Jennifer Meyer Jewelry. (shopbop.com)

4. Relax your feet, but don’t you dare kick off these shoes. “Why?” you may ask. Because it’s a nonstop party with these Beebop thong flat sandals. Please observe the fact that paisley print never looked so perfect than it does here. (chineselaundry.com)

5. Words of wisdom: Be Brave & Be Kind. To wear this helpful reminder on your wrist, look no further than this stylish bracelet from The Lost Lanes. Apparently, the phrase “be brave and be kind” is a lyric from the song “Baby, We’ll Be Fine” by The National. The more you know. (thelostlanes.com)

1. These precious Lori Cutout Flats by Restricted transition well from summer into fall. With a chambray top and a bright midi skirt, these rustic-inspired shoes would definitely pop. (shopruche.com)

2. I’ll admit it. I have long been a staunch naysayer of fedoras. That all changed when I saw Lack of Color’s collection of wide-brimmed fedoras. This Montana Hidden Shadows hat is super versatile with its deep grey brim, black bow detail ribbon and light marle grey crown. It gives me a certain film noir dame vibe. (lackofcolor.com.au)

3. With its daring cobalt blue hue, the sexy silk Caila Envelop Skirt has a regal air about it. Pair this wraparound skirt with an open-toe heel and your invisible crown, and they’ll be singing, “She’s your queeeeeeen tooo beeeee.” (shopdoll.com)

4. I’m always proud to rep for Team Natural. These Naturally Dope Hand Painted Earrings from Leather Candy Accessories make it easy. Plus, dopeness needs to be acknowledged and celebrated. (etsy.com)

5. Florals and polka dots join forces in this vintage-inspired Princess Rose One-Piece swimsuit. So much charm in one small package! (limericki.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)

1. Happy Fourth, y’all! Red, white and blue are a must for today, but you can be patriotic all year long with these stars-and-stripes Van Doren Authentic kicks. Pair these with a chambray shirt and some white denim, and you’ll be a modern-day Auntie Sam. (vans.com)

2. This is not your average swimsuit. This lovely Zimmermann Elixir Frill Tankini brings a certain elegance and charm to all notions of takinis that have come before it. I’d even dare to wear the top for an evening look — and passersby would be none the wiser. (shopplanetblue.com)

3. What’s not to love about this Back Detail T-shirt from Mango? From the polka dots to the scoop neck to the two bows across the back (the ’90s called and we were happy to catch up!), this top brings the party wherever you are. (mango.com)

4. Time surely is on Kate Spade’s side, as the designer never fails to bring us wonderful accessories on top of daring fashion. I’m especially intrigued by this Metro watch, with is big face, textured leather strap and dot detail. (katespade.com)

5. Looks like Forever 21 has turned up the heat with its Tulip-Back Printed Romper. You can’t see it in the picture, but this playsuit features a cutout in the back that sends the message that you’re ready for a night to remember. (forever21.com)

1. I can’t say that I’ve ever seen anything quite like these Lovestruck collaboration oxfords-meet-booties from LoveMade and Solestruck. I’m intrigued. They look much better on. If the polka dots aren’t your cup of tea, these masterpieces come in pink neon black and cheetah. Hurry! They’re selling out. (solestruck.com)

2. The ruffles found in these Sashay into the Sun Swimsuit Bottoms elevate this bikini bottom to a whole new stratosphere. But no need to get out of this world when these sassy bottoms belong on the beaches. P.S. Summer Solstice is tommorrow. Yippee skippy! (modcloth.com)

3. Call me crazy, but the Inaya Aztec One Shoulder Playsuit, with its bold print and daring color palette, takes my mind to a modern take on “Bedrock beauty.” Go with me for a sec. Reimagine “The Flinstones” in this day and age. Wouldn’t this be something that a grown-up Pebbles would wear out with her girls? Anywho, take this look from day to night by adding a belt and some heels. (missguidedus.com)

4. Say “hello hello” to these dainty and delicate Tiro Tiro Circle/Slash Studs. (tirotiro.com)

5. This Dress Lily Stripes Print Chiffon Scoop Neck T-Shirt has “me” written all over it. The styling possibilities are so vast! I’m thinking yellow leather joggers. Do those even exist? (dresslily.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)

1. I saw this Lucid Choker in Gold With Sodalite and immediately thought, “I’m so fancy/Can’t you taste this gold?/Remember my name/’Bout to blow,” a la Iggy Azalea’s song of the moment. ♬♪ (ladygreyjewelry.com)

2. I’ve got nothing but love for this dainty and delicate XO Gold Ring. Hugs and kisses, my darlings! (wanderlustandco.com)

1. This week’s heatwave has turned my mind toward fun in the sun and swimwear. I’m about ready to make a splash with this tropical-looking Mikoh Barbados Striped Bikini Top. (net-a-porter.com)

2. To cap off this year’s National Small Business Week, I’d like to introduce you to ARC of LA. The name of New York-based designer Abigail Rose Chapin’s exquisite line of leather bags is an homage to her years spent in the great city of Los Angeles. I’m bummed that I missed the Echo Park Craft Fair, where her bags were on display but I’m glad I found them online. And I must say, she’s got quite the assortment of patterns, sizes and colors. This Medium Grey/White Diamonds Hand-Printed Horizontal Pouch is to die for. (arcofla.com)

3. “Sí,” “oui,” “hai” and “是” are what I say to this Hugo Guinness for J. Crew “Yes” Tee. I can’t get enough of handwriting and quirky fonts like the one on display here. (jcrew.com)

4. Simplicity seals the deal for this Sofia Nautical Stripe Pleated Dress. Bring on the yacht parties and floppy hats! (ravifamous.com)

5. Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a cool slice of watermelon. H&M pays tribute to the time-honored sweet treat in this Cropped Tank Top. (hm.com)
