I think it’s safe to assume that I’ll never tire of the nautical trend. (Though, I doubt it can be called a “trend” when it comes back year after year. Perhaps “classic nautical motifs” is more accurate.) Add an anchor bottle opener to your summer bar cart or set sail in an anchor-print swimsuit.

I was ecstatic to see that Kate Spade’s "Queen of the Nile" clutch ($129) was part of the surprise sale that launched last night. So much so that I actually yelled for Dave to grab a credit card (any credit card!) so I could order it as soon as possible. (He handed over his own AmEx and told me it was an early birthday present.) I had fallen for the clutch last year, added it to my cart numerous times, but just couldn’t pull the $348 trigger. If you’d rather not carry a camel clutch, this ceramic plate ($38) adds a touch of exoticism to your coffee table.

Welcome spring with a dash of bright, lemony yellow. You’ll reach for a set of acrylic tumblers ($6.90 each) or a lucite bangle ($58) throughout the season and well into summer.

Is there anything more summery than this resort look? Even if you’re not jetsetting this year, CB2’s Acapulco chair and this swimsuit by Mara Hoffman turn the smallest backyard into a sanctuary (add an umbrella drink and a kiddie pool for good measure).

Nothing energizes your home or wardrobe quite like a jolt of neon green. Embrace the bright hue with a wood trinket box or an eye-catching bracelet.

Yellow makes everything more cheerful! Try a bit of lemon in the form of this club chair or a new spring frock.

Even though we can’t do anything about the cold snap, the coral motif on this set of glasses and this dress can help cure the winter blues. (Or at least put chilly thoughts at bay for the weekend.)

A classic mix of red, white and blue is always a welcome addition to your home or wardrobe. Of course the color scheme can tread dangerously into nautical territory, but these items keep seafaring to a minimum. At home, try a navy and white pillow in a scalloped design, or a red lacquered tray. For you, the ruffled tank by Sea is a darling option. (In fact, many of Sea’s pre-fall items are too fantastic to miss.)
