I hope you all are enjoying your Saturday.  We are having a leisurely day over here til our dinner out tonight!

I wanted to share my new favorite outfit.  I decided to bust out my white jeans (gasp before Easter)!  Although I feel like that is an old wives tale not til wear white til after Easter, I feel like now anything goes. I have tried a million pairs of white jeans and didn’t own a pair til last year because I couldn’t find a pair that didn’t make me look like a cow.  It is hard to find flattering white jeans.  These Rag and Bone Skinny white jeans are the perfect white jean.  They are higher waisted, not too tight,  not see thru, and super flattering.  I promise you the best white jeans around.

Rag and Bone Skinny White Jeans | Nicole Tank | Dolce Vita Sandals

The tank I am wearing is also Rag and Bone and it has quickly become my favorite piece for Spring/Summer.  I have been wearing it under my leather jackets and blazer and now that the weather is warmer alone.  It is so soft.  The back is the best part.  It also comes in a great blue color too.

\ Nicole Tank

The shoes are the Dolce Vita Daffdols.  I have been wearing mine non-stop!  They are a real steal for the price!

………………………………………………………………..

Kate Spade is having their Friends and Family sale.  Use code to get 25% off all purchases.

Shop Here and use code S14FFUS.

I am loving this cute stripe dress.

 Also digging these pave studs.  Such a great everyday earring.

These bow flats are so adorable and come in 4 great colors!

Totally in love with this nude Claremont purse. The perfect nude shade for everyday!

 Happy Saturday and Happy Shopping!

Happy Saturday Friends.  My sister has been in town visiting and it has been so nice having her here in town!  

Here is this Saturdays round-up:

I am always on the hunt for the perfect tee shirt.  I recently found this Rag and Bone tee and love it.  It is currently on sale at Saks.  Yes it is a bit on the pricey side for a tee shirt but such a great fit and the material is so soft too.  I am wearing a tank under mine but I don’t think you would need one under the navy or olive colors which are on sale.  I love, love this heathered gray tee as well.

|| RAG AND BONE BRANDO TEE ||

These Rag and Bone Jean Shorts are on super sale too, only $57!!  Love the rust color.  They would look so good with navy, white or pink!

|| RAG AND BONE JEAN SHORTS ||

This is the last call for the Gigi New York Winter Clearance sale.  My clutch came and I adore it- super fast shipping and such great quality.  My purse is in the emerald color.

|| Gigi New York All in One Clutch ||

JCrew is having 25% off  Spring Merchandise with code BRINGSPRING only thru Sunday. I have my eye on this embroidered Tunic.

|| EMBROIDERED TUNIC ||

Thanks to one of my readers who alerted me to the 7 For All Mankind “The Skinny” Jeans on sale at Nordstrom! My favorite post baby jeans because they sit higher up and have stretch to suck you in!  They run true to size.

|| THE SKINNY JEANS ||

Target is running a sale on the Nate Berkus collection online.  His prices are already awesome so with the discount they are prectically giving them away.  

I love this basket so much,  great for storing toys, books or even for a small house plant.  Was $35 now $27.

|| SEAGRASS BASKET ||

also loving this gold Nate Berkus lamp on sale for $52.  I am thinking about getting a pair of these for Sterling’s room.

|| GOLD LAMP||

I would pair the lamp with this gold lined shade on sale too!

Saturday’s Steals and Splurges

Jan 11, 2014

Happy Saturday friends.  I hope you all are having a great weekend.  Good news things finally warmed up here but now its raining all weekend, go figure.  But I would take the rain any day over the frigid cold!

Lets start with the steals because don’t we all love a good deal!
 I was lucky enough to score this Cashmere Vince tee at TJMaxx.  I am totally in love with it.  It is so soft and perfect for that in between weather.  I plan to wear it all thru the spring as well.  It is great spin on a tee, I feel like the cashmere can be dressed up or down.

  I couldn’t find it in the same mustard color online but I did find it in black which would go with everything on major sale at Last Call.

|| VINCE BLACK CASHMERE SWEATER ||

I also found it in the most perfect shade of brown also on major sale.

|| VINCE CASHERE TEE IN MAHOGONY ||

I have this Missoni Infinity Scarf and hands down it is my favorite scarf, I wear it all the time.  What I love about it most is you don’t have to loop it or tie it, you just slip it on and it always lies perfectly.   I am tempted to buy it in this new color combo I love mine so much.  This is one of those good investment pieces like I talked about Thursday.  Missoni is always classic.

|| MISSONI INFINITY SCARF ||

 Another steal is these Alexis Bittar bracelets.   I love Alexis Bittar jewelry it is Lucite combined with semi precious stones.  I have been collecting his pieces for years. If you can find them on sale buy them.  Love the idea of mixing these bracelets with others or 2-3 stacked together.  These are currently 50% an awesome deal!

|| ALEXIS BITTAR BEL AIR TWISTED BRACELETS ||

 This stacking style is also on sale.

 

The splurge this week, is my GIGI NY planner that came in the mail finally.  I am obsessed with it.  It makes me happy every morning when I open it to write out my to-do list.  I love that it has monthly calendars at the front, then the weekly calendar with an adjacent page to write notes.  I also love that is has my initial and is snakeskin. I think it is the prettiest little planner ever.  Its amazing, a little pricey for a planner but totally worth it in my opinion.

|| GIGI NEW YORK PLANNER ||

XOXO

    I love that little planner. And I too have been collecting Alexis Bittar as well. I love all of his pieces. You always find great things at TJs, you are making me want to go shopping!

  5. Love the twisted bracelets. I'm so over this rain. I'm hoping we're not gearing up for another wonky summer where it rains for 4-6 weeks. So, far it's been raining almost every weekend and I'm not a fan.

  6. Serendipity says:

    Great finds- the tee is such a fun color! Thanks for the heads up on the Alexis Bittar sale too! Love that collection. Posted about them here about a year ago: http://serendipityandthesailor.blogspot.com/2013/01/great-expectations.html

  7. I love GiGi New York and want one of their bags so badly!!!

  8. Love your new planner! Will definitely keep you chic and organized in 2014. I have been buying Alexis Bittar since the shop on Bleecker opened. My aunt loves the designs too and has gifted me with some pretty bracelets for birthdays and holidays. They are unique and great for stacking!

  9. Ohh I love that Missoni infinity scarf in those colors! I'm a FL Gator so the orange and blue are perfect.

  10. Val says:

    You look amazing in yellow. I bought a planner and have been writing in it everyday…mostly about my food intake and it's been awesome.
