WHAT: Giuseppe Zanotti crystal cluster t-strap sandal
WHY: We hear today may be one of the hottest days of the year in New York, and we're not thrilled about it. Clothes just seem so oppressive in such humidity, non? Luckily, the chic team over at Zanotti is offering a high-glam alternative to your trusty Havaianas...because on days like this, a closed toe will just not do. How can you argue with all that sparkle?

WHAT: 3.1 Phillip Lim studded vest
WHY: Yes, it's hot outside. We're suffering, too. But darlings, please don't let your wardrobe go the way of tanks and flip-flops toujours! There are ways to stay chic (and cool!) sans excessive AC, and this 3.1 Phillip Lim vest is step one. Layer it over a gauzy tee or light sundress, and voilà: instant upgrade, without the weight. Hang in there...fall isn't far!

WHAT: Miriam Haskell European glass stone and natural bone necklace
WHY: Our long-running love affair with the statement necklace has led us to this Miriam Haskell masterpiece--our new summer must-have. From the bright, summery color palette to the floral motif to the larger-than-life size (our favorite part!), we can't wait to layer this over a simple ensemble...and let it do all the talking.

WHAT: Thomas Wylde buckled-up leather boots
WHY: We know what you're thinking: it's 85 degrees and oh-so-humid outside. How can you even think of sporting boots now? But darlings, we can't help it--with such a chic pair as these, how can you not start planning your fall wardrobe? They're perfectly beat-up and triple buckled for that tough-chick vibe, and we can't wait to tuck in our skinniest stovepipes and top them with an equally bad-ass motorcycle jacket. Impatient? Try them now with a floaty, liberty print floral dress to rough up a sweet summer look.
