1. These ultra-swanky D’orsay Cutout Faux Suede Flats from Forever 21 came as a bit of a surprise. A very pleasant surprise. These flats look like something you’d find at Urban Outfitters or Nordstroms. Way to elevate the game, gang! (

2. Say what you mean to say with this darling Gemma Crystal Statement Necklace from Morning Lavender. This piece pairs well with a simple plain white or black tee, and gets bonus points because the crystals look like sweet little flowers. (

3. There’s nothing rusty about this dazzling Mara Geo Tie Waist Shift Dress, except for, well, the color. This reddish-orange dress is capable of navigating both professional and playful spaces, and could definitely transition well from day to night. Get ready! (

4. Boy, oh boy! Boy London really knew what it was doing with its relaxed Women’s All Over Boy Shirt. Run wild with the styling possibilities. I see what the stylist did here by adding a feminine touch with the statement necklace. I could see myself rocking this layered with a structured jacket, dual-textured pants and a bootie — fully embracing and nodding to the masculinity of the print. (

5. Done and done! This quaint Tie-Neck Colorblocked Combo Dress kills two birds by making this a ready-made look. Shirt? Check. Skirt? Check. And how could you pass up on a secretary-style tie neck? So retro, so chic. (

2. A lovely tribute to legendary African-American songstresses Lena Horne, Dorothy Dandridge, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Etta James, this Queens Tee from Hayes Denim Co. offers many styling possibilities.

3. I know I can always count on Morning Lavender for simple, darling apparel. Such is the case with this gorgeous Amelia Full Blue Maxi Skirt, which reminds me of serene oceans and the fact that I’m long overdue for a tropical getaway. (

4. This Skater Dress by My Asho Market is a thing of beauty, crafted with fabric straight outta Nigeria and Ghana. With such a vibrant, unique pattern, this number would be perfect for a summer wedding or an elaborate dinner party. (

5. Everything’s coming up roses with this super sweet Cut-Out Rose Print Dress from Topshop. Pair this stunning dress with a red lip and rosy accessories, and you’ve got a stylish take on the red, white and blue that are a hallmark of Independence Day. Yes, I’m already looking ahead to the summer holiday. Don’t sleep on the Fourth of July, folks. (

1. When it comes to sunglasses, my motto is “go big or go home.” Not only to these Holly Sunglasses fit the mold, they break it. Now that’s what I call doing it big. (

2. Dance and twirl the night away in this Starry Night/Vincent Van Gogh-inspired skirt. This Retro Stylish Printed High Elastic Waist Short Skirt from Jolly Chic just invites whimsy. (

3. Meg & Dia would be delighted to find that this Elbow Patch Cardigan is the epitome of cardigan weather. (

4. This Double Breasted Coat provides more than a little pop of red. It gives off an explosion. And just like that, I think I’ve officially warmed up to the idea of colder seasons. (

5. From the runways to the walkways, all eyes will be on you when you use this luxurious Madeline Paris Clutch to complement your outfit. If you want to go hands-free, wear it across your body with the optional gold chain. (
