WHAT: Tod's Icon sunglasses
WHY: Because sunglasses can be strangely polarizing---are you an aviator or Wayfarer type? Glam and oversized or small and Lennon-esque?---but we can't think of a person who would turn down these beauties. Sleek lines and chic details (the center and sides of the shades are clear, while the top and bottom are opaque gold metal with an almost wood-like finish) give them an undeniably luxe feel sans giant logos. It's going to be a sunny weekend, darlings; you know what we're wearing!

WHAT: Rebecca Taylor Mint Kew Gardens Envelope Clutch
WHY: The New York Botanical Garden's Conservatory Ball is tonight, and what better way to celebrate than by picking yourself up a cheery little floral clutch? Rebecca Taylor's seasonal offering also comes in a larger, carry-all size (and an equally covetable pink floral pattern), but we're partial to the pale minty green hue of this petite portfolio. Flower power, indeed.
AVAILABLE: Rebecca Taylor Boutique, 260 Mott Street, New York, 212-966-0406

WHAT: Hermès H Hour Bougainvillea watch
WHY: Let's be honest: you know you need an Hermès watch, particularly this limited-edition version is a perfectly poppy pink. Named after the flower in the same shade, Hermès' H Hour watch has all the luxe touches you'd expect, like a steel H-shaped face, goatskin strap, and the cutest little wink to Hermès history---all the numerals are black except the two and four, a nod to the company's Paris address at 24, rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
AVAILABLE: Hermès Boutiques nationwide, 212.751.3181

WHAT: Katharine Hamnett Beach for YOOXYGEN Bikini
WHY: You're more than familiar with e-commerce giant Yoox by now (and if you're not, what are you waiting for?), but YOOXYGEN, the company's eco-friendly offshoot, is just as noteworthy. The latest designer in its lineup is Katharine Hamnett, whose Save the Sea capsule collection launches on the site today. The collection is made entirely from sustainable fabrics (either organic cotton or recyclable polyester), but our favorite piece is this pin-up-esque bikini in adorable polka dots. A retro feel with a thoroughly modern sense of environmentalism? Yes, please.
