1. I couldn't decide whether I liked these See by Chloe Ankle Wrap Jelly ($125) sandals better in plum or the jade. You can decide, but both jewel tones are rich and pretty, and would look great paired with a sundress.

2. Marc Jacobs' Mouse Flats are a wardrobe staple, and it's just a nice gesture of him to reissue the Jelly version ($160) in a set of bright spring shades.

3. Want to know when a trend has officially hit the zeitgeist? When a brand like Tod's broadens its traditional mojo to create this eye-popping orange Jelly Thong Sandal ($175). Still waiting on the coordinating tote, though.
