WHAT: White + Warren Pima Cotton Jersey Blazer
WHY: The hardest part about seeing the fall collections in February? We want instant gratification (don't we all, darlings?). We're impatient to get our hands on a wool menswear-y double-breasted blazer for fall--and luckily, cashmere go-to White + Warren has answered the call. Theirs has all the tailored edge, but in a pima cotton jersey that's perfect for slipping over your springtime dresses immédiatement.

WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim Donahue sunglasses
WHY: It's (finally!) sunglass season, and you're stocking up. This Phillip Lim pair--originally for Lim's men's line, but we think the right lady can definitely pull them off--is handmade in Japan in a ridiculously cool style that's somewhere between an aviator and a chunky wayfarer, all with a half-frame touch. Complicated? A little. But we're in love.
AVAILABLE: Exclusively at 3.1 Phillip Lim flagship stores, New York and Los Angeles

WHAT: Daniel Espinosa Infinity Sterling Silver Cuff
WHY: Mexican jewelry designer Daniel Espinosa has just launched his collection stateside, and we're already swooning. His pieces are created by artisans in Taxco, Mexico--the heart of the country's silver-producing region--but they're not what you'd call traditional. This dramatic swirling silver cuff will look just as fresh paired with your breezy white tops and cutoffs this summer as it will with a strong black sheath.

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
