Threads Thursday: Wonderful Whites

Happy Thursday y’all! After the trip to New York I am LOVING white.  I am usually a color girl but I am loving this crisp neutral pallet.  You can easily add a pop of your favorite color or make a statement by going ALL white.  You can even mix white with winter white and it looks fabulous!  Here are some of the current things I am lusting after!

Cotton Eyelet Spaghetti Strap Romper [Loft]- Rompers are all the rage and a great way to stay cool this summer.  I love the simplicity of this white number.

Amanda Logo Clutch [Tory Burch]- Great for an evening out and a classic piece!

Embellished Perfect Button Down [Ann Taylor]- The name says it all! Such a fun twist on a classic piece.

Peacock Cluster Necklace [Ann Taylor]- This great necklace is embellished and I love me some SPARKLE! Would go great with so many different outfits!

Floral Jacquard Jacket [Loft]- The structure of this jack is fabulous! Again another versatile piece that you should have in your wardrobe!

Mirror Embellished Top [Ann Taylor]- This blouse is so versatile and fun! You can dress it up with a skirt and blazer or down with a pair of skinnies…. Also, will keep you cool in the HOT summer.

Thea Chain Should Slouchy Tote [Tory Burch]- I love the structure of this bag with the hint of fun in the tassel! I have been obsessed with tassels lately so of course this was a pick for me!

Bubble Stretch Bracelet [Ann Taylor]- I love the fact this bracelet is stretch and not a bangle.  I have such small wrist that bangles tend to fall right off my hand! Love the gold and white contrast and would go great with so many outfits.

Striped Organza Skirt [Ann Taylor]- Y’all this skirt is EVERYTHING.  I have been ogling it since i saw it in a window display in NY.  So fun yet chic at the same time.

What is your favorite trend right now?  Do you have a staple white piece that you LOVE?

Valentine’s Day Purchase List

Well, well, well, January came and went faster than ever! I can’t believe it is almost Valentine’s Day!  I don’t know about you but I am not a fan of [or good at] being overly romanic.  Valentine’s day always seems extra hard to me because Christmas and my husbands birthday happen 9 days apart and I feel like that I never think to save a gift for Valentines so then I am left to scramble!  So here goes a “Top 5” list.  Most of these are classic items that you can “put in your back pocket” for any event that may arise.

Also, while I am at it… I figure I’ll make a top ten classic “For Her” list!  I tried to do a range of prices so there is something most everyone can afford! If all else fails a home cooked meal date and a red box movie is a WONDERFUL go to Valentine’s Day idea!

For Him:
