Despite their lack of pockets, I’m still a fan of my Zella leggings — they don’t come unraveled like some brands, they don’t roll down, they’re opaque, and they’re on-trend and lovely. I’m liking these moto-inspired ones in a greenish gray (also available in black) for that BAMF vibe. Workout, brunch, some light shopping — they could take you far. They’re  $75, available in sizes XXS-XL (but alas, some colors/size combos are sold out). Note that this weekend Nordstrom is offering triple points, so it’s a great time to stock up on basics like denim, lingerie, and other basics. Autumn High Waist Moto Ankle Leggings

Whoa. This is probably the oddest “must have that” feeling I’ve had in a while, but I really, really, really love these sexy sandals from Rupert Sanderson. Love the color. Love the “shooting star” detail. But: don’t love the price… the “tweed/leather upper”… or the 3.5” height. Hmmn. The pair is, er, $775 at Zappos (where the same brand has a similar blue tweed flat that’s far more practical for work/life). Rupert Sanderson Starfire

Looking for something more affordable? These dark green sandals are only $89 and are still pretty awesome.

slate gray Tumi crossbodySomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m still ho-hum about crossbody bags for work, but most of my other objections (mostly arising from my dislike of crossbody straps as a busty woman) are wearing down because a lightweight crossbody bag is SO great for running errands on the weekend. This slate gray Tumi one, available at Nordstrom’s big summer sale (see our workwear picks here) is great if you like a sedate, wear-with-everything kind of bag. It was $195, but is now marked to $117 in the sale. ‘Voyageur – Capri’ Crossbody Bag

Oooh: this ribbed tank dress looks kind of perfect for a casual weekend. For some reason I’m seeing it with a big chunky cardigan and Stan Smith-like sneakers (or, hey, combat boots), but I also like the idea of it dressed up a bit with heeled sandals and some delicate jewelry. The dress is $98 at Nordstrom, available in green (pictured) and black.  Tommy Ribbed Tank Dress

(Also, this dress looks gorgeous for a fun slip dress, but it keeps going in and out of stock in black, and I’m not fond of the blue. If you’re looking for a similar tank dress in plus sizes, this one or this one look great; this one has sleeves but has a similar vibe.)

PSST: As some eagle eyed readers have already noted, some Labor Day sales are already starting, including Nordstrom’s big Summer Sale. I’ll try to do a quick roundup with some sale picks from the Nordstrom sale and add them to this post. I’m already noticing tons of great options on sale from lingerie brands like Chantelle, Natori, Hanky Panky,

I was kind of excited recently to realize that MAC not only has mini lipsticks available for $10, but they’re also available at Nordstrom with the usual free shipping/free returns (and I always like the Nordstrom free samples!). There are some classic, classic colors available in here if you haven’t tried them — Russian Red (pictured), Diva, Whirl, and Twig are all colors I’ve been hearing great things about for years. (If mini makeup in general is your thing, do check out the brand Stowaway, which makes its own makeup, all sized for your clutch or designed for people who travel often.)

I’m sure I’ve mentioned this cardigan before, but if the national events (and international events) of the past couple of weeks make you want to cook some recipes from McSweeney’s Blue Apron parody while you hunker down to order emergency preparedness supplies recommended by The Sweethome, I must say that this is what you’ll want to do it in. It’s buttery soft and super nice, and it’s a great Netflix-binge-watch, order-emergency-water-tablets-on-Amazon type of cardigan. It’s also machine washable and tumble dry. The cardigan is $116 and comes in eight colors (including basic black, which was just added) in sizes XS-XL as well as plus sizesCozyChic Lite® Circle Cardigan
