WHAT: J Brand cutoff shorts in Broken Bone
WHY: Full-blown summer weather may still be eluding us in New York, but it's never too soon to start preparing, right? When that temperature hits 80°, you'll be living in these summer classic cutoffs in a cheery bright white. Who wears short shorts?

WHAT: Lord & Taylor Feed bags
WHY: Because Earth Day is rapidly approaching---and though we want to do our part with an eco-friendly tote, another bland canvas bag is not in the cards for us. Feed founder Lauren Bush created these special-edition bags exclusively for Lord & Taylor in bright, cheery colors and a very on-trend ikat, with the tote providing "sprinkles" or food nutrients for three children for one year, and the cosmetic bag providing "sprinkles" for one child for one year.
PRICE: Tote, $39; cosmetics bag, $19
AVAILABLE: Lord & Taylor

WHAT: Själ Pearl Enzyme Exfoliating Mask
WHY: You may consider pearls as a sweet accessory to wrap around your neck, not to rub into your face—but maybe that’s because you’ve never tried this mask. Tiny pieces of crushed pearls (yes, vraiment) gently exfoliate without that rough, sandy sloughing found so often in exfoliating products, while fruit and plant enzymes and acids balance and moisturize. Ridiculously luxe? Absolutely. Fifteen minutes on your face, and you'll be a new woman!

WHAT: Reverie Convergence necklace
WHY: As though you needed another reason to go to Chelsea Market: the center's brand-new Anthropologie opens today. And as though you needed another reason to go to Anthropologie: this particular store will be carrying one-of-a-kind pieces by local artisan and designers. This Reverie necklace caught our eye right away; the layered '70s-era brass panels embellished with 1920s cobalt blue rhinestones have that perfect vintage charm without being too delicate.
AVAILABLE: Anthropologie at Chelsea Market (75 Ninth Avenue, 212-620-3116) and www.reverienyc.com
