This flat by TOMS must have been around for a while now, but I don’t think I’ve ever noticed it before. It’s a bestseller at Zappos, and it has that perfect, casual, “not trying too hard but still stylish and put-together” look. I like the gently pointed toe, and the price is great as well — it’s $75–$84, depending on color. It’s also available at Amazon and NordstromTOMS Jutti Flat

Ellie Step Hem Skinny JeansSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Step hems have been around for a few years, but I really feel like they’re hitting the mainstream now. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again — I think one of the main ways to keep your general look “fresh” is to keep up with denim trends for the weekend because even workwear trends seem to flow and follow with denim trends. (See, for example, how skinny jeans and ankle pants rose in popularity popularity while bootcut denim/full-length trousers went out of style for a long time but are on an upswing now.) These $55 step-hem jeans are highly rated at Nordstrom, allegedly are very stretchy and comfortable (one reviewer notes that both she and her mother can wear them even though she has an athletic body type with large thighs/small waist and her mother has a “normal” body type). The dark blue wash also feels like it’s on trend. They’re available in several washes in sizes 24-32 at Nordstrom, Amazon, and Macys. Pictured: Ellie Step Hem Skinny Jeans

Looking for a plus size option? This $99 pair looks great, and this $65 pair looks nice if you want a longer hem in the back. Looking for lots of other options? Don’t miss our guide to the most-loved denim at Nordstrom.

I’m not quite sure why, and I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it: but I squealed with joy when I first saw this dress. I think in my mind’s eye I’m just waiting for a great party to wear a flapper-style dress with feather trim to, although I suppose it also calls to memory Carrie’s look in the opening credits of Sex and the City. Either way, the dress is getting good reviews, is a mere $158, comes in both white and blush, and is right there if anyone has any suitably fancy parties coming up requiring such a dress. Squee!

Holiday Weekend Open Thread

Something on your mind? Chat about it here.

Readers recently recommended The Hating Game by Sally Thorne, and I read it and really loved it! It was very funny — as the publisher describes it, it’s “a hilarious and sexy workplace comedy all about that thin, fine line between hate and love.” (If you like books by Sophie Kinsella, I think you’d like this.) I’m excited about this new author, too — it’s her debut novel. I will note there were a few face-palm moments of “Why is the heroine being so dense?!” but that’s par for the course in a rom-com sort of book. So if you’re looking for something to read over the holiday weekend, or if you’ve got spring break coming up, do take a look The Hating Game, which is $9.44 at Amazon. The Hating Game: A Novel

Psst: Happy holidays to everyone celebrating this weekend! One of the “holidays” we’re missing, of course, is April Fool’s Day — see our previous content here. That Hunt on shrugs will just have to wait for next year.

Psst: The Marimekko collection with Uniqlo just dropped — pieces are already selling out.

These cork wedge sandals from UGG caught my eye on a recent trip to Nordstrom — they look gorgeous and stylish as well as comfortable. I like the cute little tassel on the back, too. They come in black and brown in sizes 5–12 at Nordstrom for $119.95. You can also find them at Zappos and AmazonZoe Wedge Sandal

I always like sweaters like this for the weekend — slouchy, easy to wear with leggings or skinny jeans — but with a few interesting details, like the cutouts and the bell sleeves. This one comes in black, gray, white, and “purple dust” for $49.50 at Amazon.  Cable Stitch Women’s Long-Sleeve Cutout Sweater
