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)

July 22, 2016

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

1. Don’t these huarache sandals scream summertime fun? The vibrant yellow and green on these Tusk Sandals make me want to traipse through the jungle and bask in the warmth. The cool thing about these made-in-Mexico sandals is that they’re made with recycled parts, including rubber tire sole and woven nylon straps. Now you can feel super “green” when you’re wearing them. (dusendusen.com)

2. In a bit of a contrast, this Brings You to Your Peonies Clutch is dainty and delicate and makes me want to twirl. Overcome by rosettes, this sweet little number is the perfect accessory for a sundress or subdued maxi, and has an undeniable bridal feel. The gold chain is a nice touch, but it’s removable if you’re looking for more of a statement. (modcloth.com)

3. This Ribbed Off-the-Shoulder Top is super versatile. Sometimes simplicity is key. Oh, the places you can go with this solid piece, and oh, the styling possibilities. This one is sure to become a staple of your summer wardrobe. (hm.com)

4. How darling is this Wander Fringe Top in Foxy Brown Faux Suede? I mean, c’mon. Fringe on fringe on fringe! Of course, it piques your curiosity when you see it dangling from the bottom hemline, but it packs a punch when you see it hanging from the shoulders on the back side. So many personalities you can bring to life with this ultra-adventurous top, too. Too-cool-for-school cowgirl. Festival-ready fairy. Rarely-well-behaved weekend warrior. I’m here for all of it! (showmeyourmumu.com)

5. Channel your inner pioneer woman with this Cabello Shirt in Wilma Wash by Motel. Whether you’re home on the range having a cozy dinner or roaming with the deer and the antelope at your local watering hole, you’ll look magnificent in this shirt that toes the line between romantic and tomboyish.

We get it. May grey is a very real thing. In an effort to keep your eyes on the sunshiny days that lie ahead, this Fancy Things Friday features some super-cute fun-in-the-sun essentials:

1. These Bali Slides from J.Crew are a Dusty Cypress shade that make me crave a desert romp. Think about it. Palm Springs when it’s 90 degrees out, and you’re lounging poolside with a refreshing drink in your hand. These sandals certainly fit (foot?) the bill for the quintessential summer sandal. (jcrew.com)

2. These Nude Slouch Bags are doubly debonair and functional. I see River Island is hip to my bag-within-a-bag swag, but these purses clearly work well as separates. Plus, the gold tone detailing adds a touch of sophistication. (riverisland.com)

3. Bring your A game to the workplace in this darling Great Gal in the Corner Office Top from (who else?) Modcloth, the foremost purveyor of all things cute and stylish. The pattern is interesting without going overboard, and the slight peplum makes me squeal with delight. (modcloth.com)

4. You gals know mustard is my jam! It’s perfect for every season and has a certain way of making my skin pop. That’s why I’m a huge fan of this Textured Sheath Dress. Dress it up or down. You know the routine! (forever21.com)

5. Doesn’t this boho-chic Ecote Fonda Striped Surplice Romper make you want to frolic? Well, at least that’s how it makes me feel! Whether it’s brunch or the beach, you’ll steal the spotlight in this extra sweet playsuit. (urbanoutfitters.com)

Spring has sprung, y’all! To commemorate the occasion, I present an all-new batch of vernal equinox-inspired goods and wares in this week’s Fancy Things Friday:

1. This vibrant Flap Cross-Body Bag is like sunshine in a bag. The stitch detail adds extra flair, and don’t forget there’s levels to this. The strap is adjustable to whichever length suits you. (mango.com)

2. Hey, Heidi! These stunning Heidi Gem Drop Statement Earrings are elegant and stately. They’ll have you looking and feeling like a million bucks, without breaking the bank. (boohoo.com)

3. Sweet, charming and quaint is how you’ll look rocking this dainty Bib Shift Dress in Retro Lace Ivory by Motel. This dress could work well for Easter Sunday, with some flats or a low heel, of course. Or channel your inner flower child by pairing this with a floral cardigan or headband. (motelrocks.com)

4. Vroom, vroooom! Buckle up for a wild ride with this Isn’t It Grand Prix? Dress. The automobile print makes quite the statement. For some reason, this dress is giving me serious Kentucky Derby vibes, but I also envision this for (you guessed it!) Easter or brunch. Or Easter brunch! Either way, you’ll be a beacon of style and grace. (modcloth.com)

5. Sunshine on my shoulders and this Harlyn Lemon Bustier Romper make me happy! This playsuit is ideal for a romp at the beach or an easy bike ride through the city. (shopkoshka.com)

1. If you’re looking to stand out, take a look at these vibrant Tonka Drops Earrings. So many elements at work here: organic wood accents, crystal jewels, marble and a burst of sunshine with the reddish-orange dangling drops. And guess what. They all complement each other flawlessly! (baublebar.com)

2. Simplicity shines through with this subtle, elegant Glass Crystal Collar. Use this no-frills piece to anchor an already-fabulous ensemble or to draw attention to your gorgeous collar bones. (modandsoul.com)

3. First place, in your face! Or is it “first the worst; second the best”? Either way, you’ll stay winning with this stunning Tied for First Place Faux Suede Dress from Go Jane. The deep U neckline is sure to turn heads, while the tied bow sweetens the deal. All in all a great LBD! (gojane.com)

4. When you want to look like a domestic goddess as you’re carving into your delicious turkey this Thanksgiving, keep A Passing Prance Dress in mind. You can’t tell from this view, but the pattern features an autumn menagerie of leaping deer, curious foxes and ostentatious owls. It’s charming and super flattering. (www.modcloth.com)

5. Baby, it’s getting colder outside, and you can’t neglect those toes. Thankfully, Kate Spade New York’s Salena Fox Slippers offer warmth, style and pizzazz. The sequin accents and faux-fur lining and trim combine to make these playful, cozy numbers a hit. (shopbop.com)

1. These Quay Dream of Me Sunglasses are the quintessential sunnies that can up the quality of just about any outfit. Sophistication and swag unite. (tobi.com)

2. Put your best foot forward and get very excited about these Very Volatile Whitby Navy Suede Leather Wedge Booties. It’s the best of both worlds, really, with leather and suede working in tandem to create a fierce look. Whether you’re boot-scootin’ in these booties or tip-toeing out on the town, you’re in good hands with these numbers on your feet. (lulus.com)

3. What does the fox say? Judging from the Modcloth Outfox the Eye Scarf in Royal, it screams, “Werk, honey!” And I can’t even be mad about it. This fun accessory is one of few–and I mean few–things at the moment making me look forward to fall. (modcloth.com)

4. Turn the party out in this Simone Twist Mini Skirt. The rouching does so much for this sassy item. And I’m loving the faux-tulip hemline. Free People, you’ve done it again! (freepeople.com)

5. How perfect is this V Neck Single Button Green Blazer from Romwe? This is the type of piece that makes me want to embrace the “young professional” label and become the belle of the board room. (romwe.com)

1. Why spend a million bucks when you can look like it for a mere £35.00? This Light Pink Pearl Embellished Box Clutch is full-on regal glam, and I’m absolutely here for it. (riverisland.com)

2. These Speckled Delivery Flats are a testament to Modcloth’s versatility. The black-and-white pattern looks fun and very “summertime-y,” reminiscent of “The Flintstones,” in all honesty. And they don’t have that overtly “retro” flair, which kept me on my toes. (modcloth.com)

3. No shame in my game! I’d pair these Motel Sweat Pants in Art School Cream with some pumps and cami and call it a day for the chillest and illest ‘fit ever. (motelrocks.com)

4. Oh no … This isn’t your skort from the 1990s. Rather, this Origami Wrap Tie Skort brings a contemporary elegance to a piece not originally known for sophistication. (topshop.com)

5. My theory is, the bigger the bow, the brighter you glow! Get your shine on with this Sweet Doll Bowknot Lace Shirt, which has two things I adore: bows and lace. This blouse gives me visions of Janelle Monáe, by the way. (chicwish.com)

1. Double-scooped ice cream on waffle cones, cotton candy, poodle skirts: all things that come to mind when I see these Parade You Look! Flat in Jade. They have a certain retro Americana appeal that’s super charming. Sock hop, anyone? (modcloth.com)

2. Let this Emerald Stone Necklace do all the talking for your look. This statement necklace brings it, so there’s no need to compensate elsewhere. A simple plain white (or black) T-shirt with some dark denim and you’re good to go! (hellosupply.com)

3. These Coated Denim Jogger Pants bridge the gap (see what I did there?) between tom boy and chic, and I love every part of it. (gap.com)

4. I’m on the market for a new swimsuit, and this Pop Floral Plunge Bikini Top is a top contender. I appreciate that there’s so many possibilities for bottoms. Maybe stripes? Maybe solids? Polka dots, if you’re living dangerously? (topshop.com)

5. Speaking of living on the edge, check out this daring Hannah Multi Twist Open Back Strappy Vest, perfect for festivals, beach days and casual bike rides. (boohoo.com)
