What I'm coveting at this very moment

Loft's Riviera style shorts ($40-55) come in a number of colors and lengths. I'm hoping to snag a black-and-white gingham pair as well as a white pair with a scallop hem.

For when I don't feel like styling my hair and keeping the sun off my face: San Diego Hat Company's Panama fedora with weave-band detail ($39), available at Rowe.

Affordable, super-cool, local: Honey Rose & K hits pretty much all my splurge criteria. I especially like this Gamuza Tassel necklace ($68) in ivory-mint.

I really love a good set of sneaks. I currently have my heart set on Adidas' super-fresh Stan Smiths (price varies) available online and at select retailers.

Around here, we plan ahead-really ahead-which means I can use this sparkly little kate spade new york planner sooner than later.

It's mule season. So, naturally, I'd like these Moscow Mule mugs from Cosecha ($17.50 each).
