WHAT: Alex & Eli boxy topper
WHY: We're not ashamed to admit that one of our favorite springtime activities is packing away our heavy winter coats. And though it may not be bare-shoulder weather just yet, we're just as excited about the array of toppers to choose from for the warming weather: the go-to black blazer, a colored suede moto jacket...and this. Alex & Eli's best-selling boxy topper has been reimagined for spring in this perfect dusty blue cotton, complete with chunky silver hardware and adorably striped lining (it's the little details we adore). Consider your little summer dresses ready for spring.
AVAILABLE: Maryam Nassir Zadeh, 123 Norfolk Street, New York, (212) 673-6405

WHAT: House of Holland by Linda Farrow sunglasses
WHY: One click to sunglass queen Linda Farrow's new e-commerce site, and you'll be like a kid in a candy store. Shades by the likes of Alex Wang, Dries, The Row, Giles, and many more will have you browsing for hours, but the ones that caught our eyes right away were these lovelies by House of Holland. The minty fresh shade is just the thing to welcome the spring, non?

WHAT: Isharya Crater Purple Druzy Ebony Bangle
WHY: Piles of delicate bangles never go out of style, but sometimes, you want something a little more bold. Enter Isharya, a brand based on both Indian royalty and Art Nouveau style (translation: not for the timid). We're loving this purple agate (plated with 18k gold) and ebony wood bracelet, but careful--your tiny gold bangles might get jealous...
AVAILABLE: Neiman Marcus

WHY: Admit it darlings, we're always seeking that slimmer silhouette! These body shapers not only smooth you out, they're not necessarily only undergarments. Available in an array of bright colors and designs, they can easily be worn as tights or playfully peak out from spring tunics and dresses. Plus, the fabric is sleek, soft and unlike other brands you won't spend 20 mins trying to squeeze yourself into them. But that doesn't mean you won't get the same level of slimming, trust us, they're officially Daily-tested and Daily-approved!
