Wish List

Wish List for spring
How bright and refreshing is this collage?! Can you tell I am already craving spring?! Plus the dose of 'warm' weather we had in Charlotte really makes me crave less chunky sweaters and more pastels and florals! 

Floral Shorts// This brand and style is one of my most favorite pairs of workout shorts and I am just in love with this floral print. So much fun for spring and this little sweatshirt tee (that's on sale) is so cute and would complete the cut workout look (now to choose the pink or blue...?!)

Striped Tee// This tee is so inexpensive and such a great closet basic. 

Blue Glasses// My friend Aly has these glasses and I fell in love with them! They are an even prettier blue in person! I also love these which are about half price-  and equally gorgeous! 

Herringbone Cashmere Cardigan// This is at the top of my wishlist. So luxe and something you can wear year round! 

Blue Crewneck Sweater// I just got this and I am obsessed. It's so simple and I'm loving the blue color. I've been wearing this non-stop!

Printed Scarf// These scarves are the best. I have SO many and they look just like Hermes but for under $50! Love this new print and colorway for spring!

Pajamas// These basically never leave my wishlist because they are my favorite pajamas and I want allll the sets! The 'short long' set has become my favorite style!

Book// This one it on my 'to read' list! I have heard it is really good and an easy, quick read.

Olio e Osso Balm// I had this balm and lost it. I have missed it ever since and it is about time I replace it! It's so creamy and hydrating and gives such a natural but good amount of color! For those of you with Amazon Prime, it is also available there! My favorite color is berry.

Bow Earrings// They look so similar to these designer earrings but for so much less. I just think they are so fun!

Bouquet Sweater// This brand is pricey but it has quickly become my favorite with it's quirky and whimsical sweaters done in the most beautiful ladylike color palettes!

Splurge vs. Save

Splurge vs. Save
I did a splurge vs. save post back in November and it was one of the most popular posts of the year! Stats like that let me know that you all like the post so I have decided to do these posts more often! If there is an item you are looking for, let me know and I will find a 'save' version! 

I've always been annoyed with a lot of splurge vs. save posts because often times, the 'save' items are really cheap and low quality from websites you probably haven't heard of. So for me, this is all about finding super similar items but the 'save' items are cheap or poor quality! 

These items are all pieces that have been on my wish-list! Sometimes the splurge is worth it and sometimes the save just makes more sense! In my opinion, the splurge makes the most sense when it is something you will use or wear very frequently. It should be something of very high quality and classic design. And then you should save on items that are trendy or won't get much wear!

Wearing: This sweater has become my newest obsession that I wear so often. It's soft and stretchy. it fits really loose. I'm wearing a size small and it's big on me, but I like it that way. For a more fitted feel, size down. It's basically like a sweater version of a boyfriend sweatshirt but looks more put together. I'd like it in every color!

Eating: We made filet mignon the other night. I was so surprised at just how easy it was! This recipe is what we followed!

Reading: I want to read One Day in December! I have heard it's a quick and easy read but also very good. Have you read it?
Sale-ing: Starting today, Tuckernuck is offering an extra 20% off the sale collection with discount code TREAT20. Items marked as "Final Sale" will not be eligible for return or exchange. This sale will go through Monday 1/21. I love when this type of sale happens because you can get things at such low prices! They had a sale like this in September and I ended up getting my fiancĂ© a few things- Vineyard Vines chinos for just $25, so definitely check out the men's stuff, too! This amazing Vince cashmere sweater is included in the sale, as is this cabled cashmere sweater!

Watching: I have been hearing from so many on social media to watch 'You' on Netflix. This might be an uncommon opinion but I did not like it- yet I still finished it. I thought the episodes dragged on and the characters really annoyed me. I also could not get Dan Humphrey out of my mind the entire time I was watching! Have you watched it? Did you like it?

Listening: Have you all heard Mike Posner's newest song, Move On? I was a huge fan of Mike Posner when I was in college but had since forgotten. However, Move On is so catchy and inspiring- I love his approach to the music video- so real and so raw. It's a reminder that you can be a famous musician and still be faced with trials and tribulations. But, what matters is how you handle it and move on.
Recommending:  My girlfriend and her fiance´sent us this gorgeous champagne bottle for our engagement. I have never seen such a thing and it was such a thoughtful gift. A ton of you messaged me on Instagram asking where it is from, and here it is

Loving: I am utterly OBSESSED with this cardigan. It's so classic and stunning but casual enough for everyday wear!
Loving II: This is one of my favorite things in my closet- a relaxed-fit Shep Shirt in blue and white stripes. I wear it SO much and it is just so comfortable. It's now back in stock so snag it while you can! They also have it in a pale blue stripe which I also love so much!

Wanting: Around this time of year I'm so torn between spring and winter! It's always a fun mix!

Traveling: Headed to Charlotte for the long weekend with my family to visit Callie!
Pittsburgh-ing: I was doing some wedding meetings and just had to share this stunning wallpaper I came across. I want this for my bathroom! 

Quoting: 'What Susie says of Sally says more of Susie than of Sally.'// See more of my favorites, here.
