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!

Psst: Here’s a plus-size option.

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.

Nic + Zoe Checked CardiganSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Happy Friday! I’m lusting after this mesh cardigan from Nic + Zoe (which has a TON of great things at Nordstrom right now, both for the workweek and not). It’s a bit casual for most offices, but I think it’s a great look with jeans or even a casual dress for the weekend. It’s $188, available in regular and petite, XS-XL.

Clarks Wessex Shay Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

I love the vintage vibe to these “Wessex Shay” sandals (to say nothing of the many glowing reviews).  I’d wear these primarily with a dress (I think they’d be great with a high-low dress in particular, for some reason), but I’d also try them with a boho look like denim cut-offs and a floaty white blouse (perhaps this one).  The sandal is on sale for $84 (was $120) and available in three colors. Happy weekend! Clarks Wessex Shay

Frye 'Molly' Gore Leather Boot | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m drooling over two simple pairs of boots at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: these lovely flat Fryes (pictured) and these lovely stretch suede heeled boots from Cole Haan. The Cole Haan boots are apparently better for narrow calves, which is definitely not me, so I will continue to drool from afar — but the Frye boots look like they have real promise, with the entire back of the boot an elasticized gore. They’re currently on sale for $279 — after the sale ends on August 4 they’ll go back to their regular price, $418. Nice!
