Sam Edelman Petty Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

I was sure we’d already featured the Sam Edelman Petty, but was surprised to see that we had instead featured the lookalike from Clarks, Spye Belle. The Petty is a very popular boot at a nice price, and comes in a million different color options — I like the low heel, and in the version pictured, the mix of black suede and almost reddish wood sole and platform. The boot is $130 at Zappos. Sam Edelman Petty

Hue Moto LeggingsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m back on the hunt for some comfortable moto leggings that hold their shape, and was happy to see the Hue brand marked down to $35 — perfect for a trend piece that I’ve seen for as much as $1000 elsewhere.  The blue is sold out, but the black is still available in all sizes online — hooray! Happy Friday, ladies.   Hue ‘Moto’ Denim Leggings (Online Only)

AllSaints Myrthe TopSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I recently took a long look through AllSaints offerings, and I’m kind of obsessed with half the store. They’re edgy but refined somehow, like this lovely silk and sheer polyester tunic top. For weekends, I think it would look great with some of the moto-leggings or coated leggings that we’re seeing this season, or perhaps worn with regular leggings and flat over-the-knee boots. Love. It’s available in sizes 0-10 for $215. (Also nice: this awesome satin dress for $360.) Myrthe Top

Psst: here’s a more affordable version, and a plus-sized one.

New Balance Classics WL402 | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Vintage-looking sneakers are a thing right now, and I’ve noticed a few bloggers wearing these classic New Balance kicks, in a lovely purple/white. (Hey, we all know I love a good purple shoe, right?) These seem fun, walkable, and just a bit hip — perfect for a weekend shoe. They’re budget-friendly, too — $65, full price. New Balance Classics WL402

Readers, which are your favorite sneakers for the weekends?

Zella Live In Eclipse Space Dye LeggingsSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’ve noticed more and more readers talking about the loveliness of the Zella leggings, so I took note when these fun space-dye ones were 25% off at the Nordstrom clearance sale.  I may have to pull the trigger… readers, what leggings are your favorites? Do you have different favorites for different activities (lounging vs. shopping, for example), or for different ways of wearing them (under dresses vs. with tunics?)  These leggings were $58, but are now $43.50.  Happy long weekend!

Burberry Brit 'Ivymoore' Quilted Zip Jacket | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I know Angie at You Look Fab says hunter green is trending, but I feel like I’m seeing emerald/malachite everywhere. Case in point: this fab quilted jacket from Burberry (also in black) at Nordstrom for $595. Gorgeous. Burberry Brit ‘Ivymoore’ Quilted Zip Jacket

Psst: Lands’ End has a much more affordable version in “antique pine” for regular, plus, petite, and tall sizes.
