Last month, I started this little series where I share the really good stuff I’ve found lately.
Depending on my own wardrobe needs and budget, I may or may not end up getting these things, but they are so special that I can’t help but share them.
Below, you’ll find 7 pieces that have caught my eye this week. Have a look!

Isn’t real life outfit inspo the best? The other day, I saw a gal wearing a deep green sweatshirt with a black tennis skirt, and I was immediately taken with the casual, sporty look.
I started looking for a green sweatshirt, and that’s when I stumbled across this new-to-me brand, Set Active. Wow. I love their concept. As a person who loves classic cut sweats and workout-wear, they nailed it. Check ’em out.

I’ve been using this tinted lash primer for a month now, and I absolutely love it.
As we head into the warmer months, I like to pare back my makeup and this stuff is the perfect replacement for a heavier mascara. It looks SO natural.
It gives beautiful definition and it separates the lashes, but it’s as light as a cloud. And — big yay — it doesn’t clump or smudge. It just looks like your natural lashes, but better.

I like to give my toes a break from polish in the winter, but once it warmed up last week, I gave myself a pedicure and guess what color I went for?
Yep, white. It’s GOOD. So minimal, but also a statement.
One thing I appreciate about white nail polish is that it doesn’t fade after swimming. I swim a lot in the spring and summer, so I love a polish that won’t fade.

I just stumbled across this gem last week, immediately ordered it, and I’m happy to say it is EXACTLY what I hoped it would be! True to it’s name, it skims the body, but it’s not tight!
This is such a big deal for me because I don’t like wearing tight tops, especially when it’s hot outside. BUT! I have noticed a gap in my wardrobe for smaller tees that will balance out my wide leg pants or baggy jeans.
These tees fill that gap perfectly! They’ve made my wide leg pants and baggy jeans infinitely more wearable.
An XS fit, but I got a S to allow for a bit of shrinkage in the wash over time. The fabric is substantial and soft. Also at under $20, they are a steal, and come in a nice selection of neutrals.
If you’re looking for a tee that’s cropped-but-not-too-cropped and fitted-but-not-tight, don’t sleep on these. I predict they will sell out soon.

I’ve been looking for a chubby silver hoop earring and was immediately taken with the way you can wear these earrings TWO ways!
You can wear it as a traditional hoop, OR you can wear it BACKWARDS. The earring back is actually a silver orb, so it transforms into this modern, sculptural piece when worn backwards. How cool is that?
I’ve never tried Jenny Bird jewelry before, and I do have to say I was a little bummed that these aren’t sterling silver — the description just says “silver dipped”. But, to me, the creative design makes them worth it.
I’ll let you know how they hold up over time. So far they are just gorgeous!

I’ve been a fan of Andie Swim for years now. Their suits are SO WEARABLE.
Their cuts strike the balance between modest and sexy. Their ribbed fabric creates the most flattering texture. And they have built-in shelf bras for a bit more coverage. I just feel comfortable and confident in their swimsuits.
I mentioned I swim a lot in the summers, and most of that swimming happens at a community pool — so I prefer to have a bit more coverage there than if I were on a beach vacation.
So I decided to take the plunge and get another Andie suit with tan-line-friendly straps.
(The other Andie I have is the Tulum — love it, but wicked tan lines.)

Okay, so I haven’t gotten one yet, but I really want to get a good anklet this spring.
There’s just something about an anklet. I don’t know if it reminds me of middle school summers or what, but I love them. They feel a little unexpected and playful. I’m here for it.
