Daily Covet: Banana Republic Cotton Coat

Coats?!

I know, I know.  I just need a new lighter weight coat for the fall and spring seasons coming up.  I didn’t buy anything this year for obvious reasons.

But, what better time to find a new coat than when they are on wicked sales?

I love this bright cotton coat from Banana Republic.  It’s simple, has lady-like lines and will go with virtually everything.

It almost makes me excited for fall… almost.

Daily Covet: Mini Mason Jar Sippers

Summer weather has finally started to rear it’s head around here.

That means backyard BBQ’ing and outdoor parties will soon become a reality – especially as we make our way toward my four-year-old’s birthday in early June and my own – GASP – 40th in July!

These mini Mason Jar sippers immediately caught my eye and made me long for the lazy days of summer and pink lemonade.  I picture a gaggle of sweaty 4-year-olds walking around sipping from cute red and white straws.

But who’s to say that these cute little jars wouldn’t make great high ball glasses filled with hard lemonade for the older set?

So many possibilities!

Daily Covet: Enamel Striped Rings

Enamel striped rings?

You thought I was going to say bracelets, didn’t you?

At first glance these rings do look like bracelets.  But they are actually the miniature version perfectly sized for ring fingers instead.

I adore the turquoise rings with brushed gold stripes and a fun bezel-set rhinestone, of course.  These ring sets also come in black, white, orange,  mint and peach too.  (I can’t wrap my head around these colors again — too high school!)

Here’s the part that’s totally mad!  This set of three rings is only $20 on INPINK.

Too cute to pass up, if you ask me!

Daily Covet: Vince Camuto T-Strap Sandals

Spring.

Is it here yet?

Is it here yet?

I’m ready for sandal weather.  I want to get my pedi on and show it off with pretty open-toed shoes and sandals.

I also want to wear these Vince Camuto Tezer Tortoise Sandals that I just ordered.  You would not believe the deal I got on them.  And what’s more?  How I actually got them for free – shipping included!

Months back, I ordered a beautiful Burberry watch for my husband.  This particular retailer sent me an empty box.  There was a little back and forth that went on.  To make it up to me, they sent me a $50 gift card via email.  Now that’s customer service!

I’ve been holding onto that certificate thinking that I’d try to order something fabulous and a little indulgent.  So when I found these fun “dancing with the stars” shoes, which will go with just about anything, I had to spring for them.

They should be arriving any day now!

Daily Covet: DVF Metallic Jacquard Dress

Nobody loves a shift more than me.

And a DVF shift is perfect for balancing out my lower half.  The “shortness” of her many shifts, show off as much of my short legs as I can appropriately show at my age.

And while I won’t be wearing non-maternity clothes for a while, I would love to add this super cool DVF Metallic Jacquard Dress to my ever-growing (never shrinking) dress collection.

It has that cool retro-futuristic (clear as mud, right?) Barbarella quality about it.  And features one of this season’s hottest hues – mint green…. or is it blue?

Whatever… c’est trés adorable!

Daily Covet: Gucci Peep Toe & Ankle Strap Shoes

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these grass green Gucci peep toes with the gold “mirrored” heel.

Gucci obviously knows what they are doing when it comes to leather goods and these shoes scream “Spring” to me… something I’ve been waiting to hear since fall showed up last year!

This mom-to-be-again loves the fact that the heel is small and secure, but also appreciates the very sexy and feminine ankle strap.  And what’s not equally as sexy as the tiny peek at your first spring pedi?

Daily Covet: DVF Delian Leather Dress

A few weeks ago, I did a round up of upcoming spring fashions for “My paying gig.”  In the article, I mentioned that leather will be just as hot for spring as it was for fall/winter in 2012.

So this DVF Delian Leather Dress is just what the “style doctor” ordered!  I know it’s hard to tell, but from here the leather looks buttery soft and how chic that it’s also in a creamy white color – lighter for warm weather.  Also looks like the peplum is here to stay for at least another season.

If I weren’t going to be sporting a baby bump all spring and summer, I’d be waiting for this hot, little number to go on sale!
