{ Kate Spade Licorice Too Pump, $298 }

Lately, I’ve been obsessing over this neon gem from Kate Spade. I think it’s the perfect hue to send summer off in style. Plus, I think it will be an unexpectedly lovely pop of color in the cold and dreary months to come. But I shouldn’t get too ahead of myself (especially speeding up to the cold), as this shoe comes in at virtually $300. I’m holding out hope on a less pricey alternative. Any suggestions?

To me, this is the perfect dress for a nice summer day. The print’s adorable, but the back and cutout keep it from feeling too sweet. Plus, the length works great for warm weather. This can easily take you from the beach during the day to a date later that night. Who doesn’t love double duty?

PAPE-WP4_V1{ Paper Crown Serena Legging, $158 }

Let’s face it, not all faux leather leggings are created equal. Some are super shiny and rubbery looking, which definitely defeats the purpose of going for a leather-like look. I’ve seen my share of terrible ones, but I’ve been searching the web for a great pair. I really like these ones from Paper Crown ( they look great on LC here and here) or these from Zara.

This edition of Currently Coveting is something I think everyone can relate to: a vacation. Right now, I’m longing to lounge in the sun on a quiet beach with a drink in my hand and the breeze in my hair. I know I can’t be alone in this, especially during this time of year. Well, that is if your area experiences winter, at least. Almost everyday this week alone has been dreary, dark, and downright cold; it’s enough to make more than just bears want to hibernate.

{ A|X Armani Exchange Chevron Faux Fur Vest, $179 }

This faux fur vest is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Although I had it in my head to buy one in a shade of grey, I think this one will actually suit me far better. I love the chevron pattern and the two-tone color. I’m already mentally pairing it up with items in my closet, like cozy cashmere sweaters and military-style parkas. Bring on the cold, winter. This girl’s ready.

{ Coach Legacy Collection Casey Sunglasses, $148 }

I’ve been waiting patiently for these babies to appear on the Coach site ever since I saw them in a promo that was dropped off in my mailbox. Don’t they just seem lovely? They look so chic, yet so fun. The hardest part will be deciding between the yellow/leopard combo or the bright teal.

{ Valentino Flats, $895 }

This week’s Currently Coveting comes courtesy of Valentino. Just look at all the pretty! I mean, what’s not to love here. Studs? Check. Black patent leather? Check. Pointy toe? Also, check. Ugh, perfection. This is one piece I’ll have to learn to accept simply lusting after, because there’s no way in hell I can afford the $900 price tag. If I could even find them that is. These babies are sold out almost everywhere.
