1. Topshop Quilted Bomber ($120) // 2. Vince Camuto Kelva Sandal ($110) // 3. Barry M Magic Lip Paint ($7) // 4. Madewell Chevron Necklace ($60) // 5. DvF Carol Dress ($298) // 6. Rebecca Taylor Pleated Back Blouse ($295) // 7. ‘All in a Daisy’s Work’ Dress ($83) // 8. Mango Leather Shopper ($150) // 9. Vince Camuto Metallic Cork Cuff ($88)

One. I’m always on the lookout for interesting blazers and jackets, the kind of pieces that can be worn with suit separates or jeans, and this Topshop jacket certainly qualifies.  The basket-weave fabric is very cool.  But if you want a collarless blazer for less-than-$100, try this teal shawl collar or this black and white printed one.

Plus size? I love this longer collarless jacket. Petite? This piped tweed blazer is nice.

Two. Versatile summer sandals can be tough to find, but I love this tan and gold pair from Vince Camuto.  They could easily be worn with jeans or with semi-formal wedding attire.  They’re an edgier alternative to a nude pump.  I also like the mix of leathers on this pair.

Three. Last week, I posted a blue lipstick called Hello, Sailor that turns a shade of berry when applied.  This week, it’s a green lipstick that reacts with the alkaline in your system to create a unique shade of pink.  What will they think of next?

Four. The mix of white and yellow metals in this necklace makes it a great piece for ladies who like both.  You can wear it solo, or use it as a foundation to wear other white and yellow pieces.  Looking for other two-tone pieces?  Try these simple mixed bangles or these delicate drop earrings (love!).

Five. My intern wore this dress to her graduation, and I loved it.  It’s the kind of frock that can be worn to work (add a white blazer) or to brunch or to a semi-formal event. It’s such a great shape and I love the print.  And if you like grey and yellow prints, check out this dress from Loft.

Six. I love silk blouse, it’s no secret, but the pleated back on this top makes it a bit more unique.  I’d wear it with skinny trousers or with scalloped shorts and just tuck in the front.  The back deserves to fly free.

Seven.  Bright yellow is the perfect summer shade.  No matter which hues are currently in season, the color of the sun always works.  I also like this lace-accented dress and this one with back cutouts for a bit of playfulness.

Eight.  A giant shopper is great for weekend errands or to use as an overnight bag.  This one from Mango looks more expensive than it is and has a great shape to it.  Looking for something under-$100?  Try this BCBG shopper.

Nine.  I’ve featured this bracelet on the blog before, but I just bought it, and it is everything.

    Wow, I think I need that yellow dress. Great round-up!

  2. Samantha says:

    Love everything in this post! I may have to pick up that Madewell necklace.

  3. Cynthia W says:

    I seem to remember lipstick like that during the late 80s or early 90s. I know that they were weird colors in the tube, but reacted to your “personal chemistry” to change colors.

  4. Julie says:

    Ha! That lipstick. Before I read the comments I was thinking what is she on about with green lipstick? That’s pretty neat.

    Also, totally agreed on the yellow dress. I LOVE bright yellow for the summer.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
