Daily Covet: Ann Taylor Katarina Sandals

Not sure who Katarina is, but I love her sandals.

But seriously, these Ann Taylor sandals scream “SUMMER!” and I’m so ready for warmer weather – especially with a foot of snow on the Midwestern ground.

I love the pale gold color that would look great against summer-tanned feet. There’s a small heel for comfort mostly, and some metal detailing up top too… really a perfect spring break or summer sandal!

Daily Covet: LOFT Striped Trench

Sorry bloggy friends.  I’m running late today, but couldn’t let you go without the Daily Covet!

I’m thinking fall again.  Fall means outerwear (at least maybe it will this year!)

I saw this striped trench first in the LOFT Store here in town.  It looked pretty cute hanging on the wall, and figured I’d better go back and check on this cute trench online.

Loved it even more styled with bright pants and a neutral top.  It’s really such a great neutral, but the corded stripes give it dimension and cool-weather weight.

This trench coat would be great layered over hot pink, red, bright blue and more.  Or try it over other prints.  Need help with that?  Read more here.

Daily Covet: Navy and White Striped Blazer

Looking Parisian-chic in stripes should be a cinch this season.  Anything and everything you could ever want can be found in stripes.  And this adorable blazer is no exception.  It has a great fit, it’s a great weight for spring and summer, and it looks great with every color under the sun.

My Banana Republic happens to be next door to Ann Taylor, where there is also an adorable red knit dress that I would love to wear with it for going out or a day at the office.  But throw it on with jeans and a bright yellow tee, and you have a cute “around town” outfit.   Or choose kelly green boyfriend chinos and a denim shirt for a business casual Friday and shopping with your best girls.  The possibilities are endless!  (See Polyvore.com for where to buy.)

One jacket, three ways!
