It feels like it should be spring, and it should be warm, and so if you’re a bit bummed that you can’t wear slinkier tops for going out this weekend, and if you don’t even want to think about cold shoulder tops, this kind of cutout seems like a fun, edgy way too do a casual look. I wouldn’t wear the cutout to the office, but I would possibly wear the blouse underneath a blazer or cardigan and then when I’m heading out Friday or Saturday — desk-to-dinner kind of dressing — take off the top layer. It’s only $69 and comes in sizes XXS-XL. Cutout Surplice Top

Here are two similar options in plus sizes.

Psst: Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Be safe out there tonight if you’re planning on drinking a lot (and of course, go for extra moisturizer afterwards, like readers recommended on Tuesday’s discussion of the best makeup products to fake a good night’s sleep.)

Happy Weekend! This Sam Edelman boot has been around for a thousand years, and it’s very highly rated everywhere. It doesn’t go on sale very often, so this is a great opportunity to snap it up. Amazon has it as low as $102, Nordstrom has some lucky sizes in a price range of $84 to $149, and at Zappos they’re $149 as well. These come in a few colors, and in wide sizes as well as an extensive size range in the regular width, 4-13. They’d be great if you’re looking for a boot to commute to and from work and to wear on slushy and/or rainy days. Sam Edelman Penny Boot

Lilly Pulitzer is a stalwart of preppy ladies everywhere, and if you happen to be into Lilly styles, note that Nordstrom has a ton and Amazon also has some pieces on sale (in lucky sizes). This one is $188 at Nordstrom — although, again, only lucky sizes are left. It’s 100% cotton and machine washable. Tandie Cotton Sheath Dress

Two plus-size options are here and here.

This may be perhaps the most boring Weekend Open Thread ever, but I was unreasonably psyched when I saw these, so I thought I’d share: they are now making socks cut just for Chucks.  Yes: if you (like me) are a fan of Converse Chuck Taylor shoes, but can’t decide between the comfort of ankle socks and the dang no-show socks that keep bunching up in your shoes, you may want to give these socks a try. They’re $20 for 6 at Zappos and Amazon, and available in a number of colors. Converse Cut-for-Chucks 6-Pair Pack

I’m curious to hear from you guys — are you looking for a denim jacket for spring for weekends? Or is it one of those trends that you just won’t repeat if you had something similar in the late ’80s or early ’90s? This one is very highly rated — 4.6 stars with almost 100 reviews — and it comes in a bunch of colors. It’s available in regular sizes XS-XL and petite sizes XXS-XL, as well as plus sizes, for $74.50 at Nordstrom. Helena Denim Jacket

(Of course, if you’re on the hunt for new jeans in general, don’t forget to check out Wednesday’s roundup of the most-loved denim at Nordstrom. Some are even on included in the big winter #Nsale that just started!)

When I got this at a blogger event (in orange), I was really surprised at how it felt like a very sturdy, well-made top. It’s billed as a camisole but it’s got a pretty V-back and a thicker strap in the front to hide your bra, so I would wear this as a going-out top, personally. If you wanted to wear this under a suit, you could; I always like sleeves under suits, but that’s me. This top has come and gone in a bunch of different colors at Nordstrom (with lots of great reviews) and is now available there in blue and black. Over at Topshop there’s a couple more colors in regular, petite, and tall sizes. It’s only $30 at both Topshop and Nordstrom. Topshop Double Strap V-Back Camisole
