1. I couldn’t have described this neon Electric Safari skater dress better myself. Designer Devyn Shaughnessy of Dressed2love writes, “If you and Lisa Frank went on a safari this might be something you would wear.” I bet we’d have quite the adventure reliving the ’90s. (

2. Dearly beloved, if we’re really gathered here today to get through this thing called life, we may as well live it to the fullest in this simple but bold Prince tee from Deer Dana. I’d pair it with the icon’s trademark vibrant ankle boot, and take it up several notches with a raspberry beret, perhaps one found at a secondhand store. (

3. Zara, you’ve outdone yourself with this Mixed Knit Sequinned Bomber jacket! So many styling possibilities with this fancy little number. (

4. Leave it to Anthropologie to craft something so elegant and delicate. This Single Pearl Necklace is just perfect. (

5. Go out to lunch with all your Sherlock Holmies in this H&M Wool-blend Cape and look fashion-forward and cool doing it. (

1. Now that the days are longer, I’m looking forward to warmer weather. Thankfully, it’s been gloriously sunny in SoCal, and, as a result, I’m dreaming of rocking these cute little Monochrome Zig Zag Shorts when the time is right. (

5. Kenzo has done it yet again with its Shantung Front-Tie Jacket. I just love how it can be dressed up or down, and the front-tie closure is a pleasant surprise. (
