1. If you love smart social commentary, pop culture recaps so on point they’ll have you screaming “YAASSS!” all by yourself, and copious amounts of laughter (who doesn’t?), I’ve got the podcast for you! It’s called The Get., and it was created by my pal Ivy and her good friend Rhiana (Ovary Gang, represent!). I just love how transparent these women are and how inviting the podcast is. The Get just, well, gets me — my delight in shedding light on the most epic shadings of our day and the varying levels of foolishness in need of a good rebuking and all. It’s like these gals are right there with me in my living room. So basically get in on The Get! You won’t be disappointed. New episodes drop biweekly on Wednesdays. (www.wearetheget.com)

2. A tip of the hat to the good people over at J. Crew for bringing this luxurious Wide-Brimmed Felt Hat With Leather Band to the masses. With some over-the knee boots, a bold lip and this hat, you couldn’t tell me nothing! (jcrew.com)

3. Doesn’t this super cozy Maronie Shawl Cardigan look how a warm hug feels? Ah, drink it in. This sweater is rife for opportunities for layering. Make a piece like this one of your staples this season. (hautelook.com)

4. You know by now that I go ga-ga for d’orsay flats. Mix in a variety of patterns and textures and I’ll swoon. These dazzling Elsemma flats had that effect on me. These fun shoes can elevate a plain look to plain dope, and I need them in my life. That is all. (justfab.com)

5. Hey now! Whether you wear these Crepe Cigarette Trousers in Red around the office or out on the town, you’ll be making a bold statement. Pow! (www.missguidedus.com)

1. I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with these Jeffrey Campbell In Love Leather D’Orsay Flats. Why, you ask? The two-toned dynamic duo of tan and black. You can never go wrong. Obvi. (urbanoutfitters.com)

2. Artitzia advises that this Sunday Best Dashner Dress be saved for when you’re feeling particularly coquettish, and I concur! The flowy cap sleeves and fit-and-flare silhouette are particularly flirty. Hey, boys! (aritzia.com)

3. It rained a good amount (well, at least for Southern California in the tail end of summer) earlier this week, and for the first time in a long time, I didn’t know what to wear. Not a good predicament to be in at 5 a.m., scrambling to get dressed and out the door for work. But I digress. I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that fall, and chillier weather, is upon us. However, this swanky Mono Check Duster Jacket actually has me looking forward to autumn and winter. Plus, the vintage feel is an added bonus. I spy small pockets of houndstooth! (missselfridge.com)

4. Look like a walking masterpiece in this stunningly abstract Brush It Off Painted A-Line Midi Skirt. It paints a lovely picture of a avant-garde statement piece that commands attention. (gojane.com)

5. Way to play the wild card with these fun Leopard-Print Slacks, H&M! The possibilities are endless with these pants: day or night, work or play, heels or flats, neutrals or a pop of red — you catch my drift. (hm.com)

1. Love Lorde, but I think she got it wrong when she sang, “And we’ll never be royal,” ’cause this Duchess of Panama Necklace has made me fall in love with being queen. Thanks to Glamour and Glow (who else?) for serving up this glamorous piece of wearable royalty. (glamourandglow.com)

2. Chill out in this über relaxed Slub Crewneck Tee in Faded Chartreuse. Or tszuj up this simple tee by adding some sparkle, a la item No. 1. (madewell.com)

3. Whether you’re going off the grid or going to the country club for a game of tennis, these checkered Eve Shorts are perfect attire. (brandymelvilleusa.com)

4. Way to class it up with these Women’s Sam & Libby Heidi Two Piece Flats, Target! For the uninitiated, that’s pronounced Tar-jé, not Tar-get. These d’orsay flats are deceptively affordable and extra stylish. They also come in black on black, and animal print on black. (target.com)

5. Spring on the scene in this darling Peach Full Bloom Rosette Flare Dress, courtesy of Love Culture. Look fab in this sweet number at a springtime wedding. (loveculture.com)

1. You’re gonna want to wear this glammed-up Stretch Crepe Bardot Midi Dress White when it counts. The mesh cutout and off-the-shoulder style definitely mean business. (missguidedus.com)

2. These two-toned cobalt blue and turquoise Laforte flats from Aldo are twice as nice! I’ll kindly be “blue” every day of the week if it means these shoes are on my feet. (aldo.com)

3. Meanwhile, this Madison Pin Stripe Sweater Dress is a healthy dose of double trouble, as it combines a pullover sweatshirt with a sultry tube dress. The result is a killer dress that commands the attention of all who see you in it. (pixiemarket.com)

4. Calling all avian aficionados! Birds of a feather really are flocking together in this flighty Petite Cream Bird Print Shirt. (wallisfashion.com)

5. There’s more to this Brown Heart Mighty Purse than meets the eye. Yes, it’s plenty sweet with its heart pattern, but this clutch packs a punch. You see, this bag features a rechargeable battery pack that can juice up a smartphone. Yet again, fashion and function make a winning couple! (handbag-butler.com)
