Kate Spade has little colorful stud earrings that have been hugely popular for a long time now, and since I hate studs I’ve never pulled the trigger. I love that now they’ve got little drop earrings made with the same colorful crystals — I think they’re fun and a little festive. I kind of like the blackish “jet” (pictured) or the blueish “sapphire,” and there’s a lovely “berry” and “emerald” — but they also have a simple clear crystal with either gold, silver, or rose gold. These are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale; they’re $31 and will go up to $48 after the sale. If you’re not a big fan of these, Nordstrom has these very similar drop earrings that are NOT part of the NAS but on sale anyway! Bright Idea Drop Earrings

This sandal has been getting a ton of good reviews over at Nordstrom, and it comes in six colors, which is always a good sign. In general, Michael Kors is a well-liked brand around here — their MK Flex pump is always ranked highly with the readers — and in general this looks like a great, classic sandal. It’s got sort of a vintage vibe, but it also feels very modern. We’re featuring it in red, which I like, but it’s also got a bunch of neutral colors, including oyster, dark khaki, mink, black suede, and navy suede. It’s $98, which is very affordable, and it comes in sizes 5–11. Becky Slingback Sandal

You know, a few years ago when I got my Pucci sunglasses, I said to myself, that’s IT, I will never need another pair of sunglasses because I love this pair so very, very much. And I still love them — but they haven’t quite been the category killer I thought they would be, because I’m still buying sunglasses.  In general I’m not one of those people who spends $100s on sunglasses, although many people certainly do. Instead, I’ve been eyeing the brand Quay for affordable, fun, on-trend sunglasses — everything just seems really cool. I’m currently crushing on these  round sunglasses with cutout metal frames; they are, as Tim Gunn would say, “a lot of look,” but if the rest of your wardrobe tends to be pretty low key, sunglasses are a great place to make an impact. These are $60 at Nordstrom; ShopBop and Amazon also carries the brand. (If even that is too rich for your blood, I got these slightly wacky $10 sunglasses at Amazon a while ago on a total whim and keep getting compliments!) Pictured: Fleur 49mm Round Sunglasses

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

Readers were singing the praises of Mott 50 recently, and because I’m like a vampire and hate the sun, I’m now drooling over this cardigan that you can wear as a cover-up with a suit, or just outside anytime. It’s rated UPF 50 for sun protection and even has thumbholes to cover your hands, it’s machine wash cold/line dry, and it just looks awesome. The cardigan comes in seven colors in sizes XS-XL at Amazon. Mott 50 Women’s Marilyn Open Cardigan

Nordstrom also carries the brand (but not the cardigan); of course the brand’s site has the most options.

Happy Fourth of July, everyone! How is your office handling the Tuesday holiday?

This is the kind of dress that another site or magazine will tell is you is a perfect desk to dinner dress — and it may be that, if you’re the kind of person who wants to wear one dress to the office and then to dinner. I think it’s a really sexy, cute navy dress, and I like the sort of halter neckline, the asymmetrical hemline, and the faux wrap style (which looks a little low in the front — something to be aware of if you’re considering this for work). This is from a new line I’m not familiar with called Cooper St, which looks like it has some fun clothes. The dress is $159 at Nordstrom in sizes 2-12 and is hand wash cold, line dry. Imperial Asymmetrical Dress

Two plus-size options are here (with an even lower neckline than the dress pictured) and here.

There are a million sandals out there with a kind of schlubby look, or a glam, disco-diva look on the other end, but if you just want a slight heel to wear with shorts for a put-together weekend look, I think this is your perfect shoe. It’s flattering, it’s secure because of the multiple straps, it’s comfortable because it’s from Sofft, it has a lot of colorways, and it’s got 211 reviews at Zappos with a 4/5 rating. It looks a great shoe for everyday weekend style, and it comes in sizes 6-11 in medium and wide widths. It’s $89.95 at Zappos and is also available at Amazon and NordstromSofft Innis Sandal
