Our Top Picks for the Week of March 4, 2019

So ready to ditch the heavy winter coat, and these cute spring jackets are just driving that point home. The rest of the week’s top picks also have spring vibes, from a mask made for beach-side Spring Break trips, one pair of earrings in spring’s first birthstone, another perfect for spring training (they are actually made from baseballs!), and a reusable shopping bag with D.C.’s most famous spring motif.

Celeste: PLAY BALL! Nothing says spring has arrived more than the start of spring baseball training! These earrings are crafted from MLB Authenticated Game Used Washington Nationals Baseball. The earrings are set in sterling silver and have the unmistakable red stitching, scratches, and scuffs of actual game play. Officially licensed by Major League Baseball, a tamper-evident hologram sticker is adhered to each earring to ensure authenticity. (Available at Kiskadee, $195)

Angela: Even if you’re super diligent with your SPF (heroic), the seaside triple-threat of sunshine, salt water, and sand can dry out and stress your skin to the extreme. Relieve redness and replace that lost moisture with the soothing Patchology Resting Beach Face Kit sheet mask and restore your lips to plump perfection with a lip mask. Your skin will drink up all the moisture and you’ll be back to beach babe status in five minutes flat. This one is a must have for any trip where the sun is shining. (Available at Bellacara, $20)

Meaghan: Spring is definitely, most assuredly on its way and I’m already feeling the pull of adding more color to my now daily winter wardrobe of monochromatic pairings. These 18k yellow gold rough cut aquamarine drops would add just the right amount of color…and, speaking of color, isn’t the shade just gorgeous? The perfect blue to dress up or down. (Available at Alx$Co., $780)

Ali: The Cara Cropped Denim Jacket by GRLFRND is quite possibly the most flattering jean jacket we’ve seen in awhile. The cropped, raw hem shows off your waist whether you wear it like a jacket or cape it over your shoulders. It’s also not too much, too thick, too light, or too dark. Seriously, it’s just right. Perfect for year-round wear, this jean jacket is a must have! (Available at TSALT, $258)

Amy: Our spring Baggu collection has arrived! Small but mighty, these reusable bags fold into a flat 5 in. x 5 in. pouch and are available in a variety of designs. We are especially smitten with the cherry blossom pattern. Is it spring yet? (Available at Penny Post, $14)

Elizabeth: Since we are hosting our Veronica Beard trunk show this weekend, how could I not pick something from our favorite designer (well, there are actually two Veronicas)? If this brand is known for one thing, it is their blazers. If they are known for a second thing, it is their dickey inserts. This Farley Dickey Jacket and unexpected Bess Dickey insert is one of my favorite combinations for spring. All Veronica Beard will be 20 percent off this weekend only. (Available at The Hive; Farley Dickey Jacket, $650; Bess Dickey $250)
