Perhaps it’s because last week was so short (or because last weekend was so long), but personally, I’m still trying to figure out what day it is. Yesterday felt like Wednesday to me, but in reality, that’s today. Thankfully, I took note of that in time for Want It Wednesday, the PurseBlog team’s weekly roundup of the things we’re coveting, lusting after and sending each other links to via GChat. This week’s selections, you might note, are especially summery – we still have our long weekend on the brain.


After spending most of last weekend in the sun, I can honestly say I feel like a whole new person. It’s amazing what a good tan can do for you, both emotionally and physically. Growing up in Florida, where tanning may as well have been an extracurricular activity, I was always in search of the best oils to get maximum glow. I’ve tried hundreds (literally), and this weekend I tried one that I became particularly fond of. A friend of mine brought along a bottle of Hampton Sun SPF4 Oil, which naturally I was inclined to try. The walnut oil and aloe in it made my skin silky smooth and left a subtle glow unlike other greasy oils. Not to mention, my tan looks great. This is definitely a new must-have in my summer beach bag. To make sure I maintain my new glow, I’m also wanting its partner, the Hampton Sun After-Sun Moisturizer, because the best tans are the ones you can drag out. Buy the oil for $35 and the moisturizer for $32, both via Net-a-Porter.

If you’re a regular PurseBlog reader, you probably recognize this MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Messenger Bag from earlier in the week – Emily caught Alessandra Ambrosio carrying the exact same one. At the time, we couldn’t locate her neon yellow version for purchase online, but lo and behold, has it tucked away. I thought I was over neon, especially neon bags, but there’s just something about this simple little purse that makes me think maybe I need it to tide me over until fall gets here. For the price, it’s certainly an option I’m considering. Buy for $228 via Michael Kors.

I’ll be honest; I’m a sentimental kind of girl. Growing up, like many girls, I loved trying on my mom’s and grandma’s jewelry. While their tastes may have differed ever so slightly, there was one stone that had a presence in both of their collections – turquoise. Perhaps that is why, when I came across this Philippe Audibert Pawnee Turquoise Cuff, I stopped and stared. It doesn’t remind me of any of the specific pieces my mom or grandma own, but the turquoise definitely jumped out at me. This particular cuff is a bit more modern and substantial than the dainty pieces I remember trying on as a child, but I love it. Plus, I can say with certainty that this is a piece that will not only stand the test of time, but also become a piece I would gladly let my daughter or granddaughter try on (and maybe even keep) one day. Buy for $408 via
