Thoughts For Thursday

Mar 3, 2016

Happy Thursday!  

Last night I went out with my mom and a few girlfriends to try SIP a new wine/bar taproom.

Wearing :

Joie Blouse | McGuire Jeans | Target Shoes | RM Purse | Necklace and Bracelet are Hyla Dewitt

Use code BIGEVENT16 to save on the blouse, jeans and purse!

What I love about this Joie blouse is I can wear it during the day and then transition it to night easily.  During the day I just paired it with my Tkees flip-flops but at night I dressed it up a bit with heels and fun jewelry.  It is part of the Shopbop spring event so you can save up to 25% depending on how much you spend.

The idea of the tap room was really cool.  I didn’t think their wine selection was great and I was a little disappointed in their charcuterie board too.  If you like beer though they had a great selection.

We ended up liking this wine (of course it was the most expensive one on the menu).  It was a nice white wine though. 

A close up view of the color of my Rebecca Minkoff Purse.  It is the sandstone color and it is a great neutral.  

Frances is still bathing suit obsessed.  At least we had warm weather this week so I actually let her outside to play in her suit.

Bathing Suit | Shoes (both are on sale right now too)

I am just finishing up 800 Grapes which I have enjoyed.  It has been a great light and easy read.  I am looking for something to read next any suggestions?

I recently this ordered this Oribe Shampoo and Conditioner and I am loving it.  I swear it really helps my color look brighter and it smells amazing.  It also doesn’t make my hair greasy at all.  I can go several days without washing it and it still looks fresh and clean.

Barrington Gifts just came out with their new Spring Monogram line.   I spent way too long playing around with patterns and colors but I eventually decided on this tote and I also got the matching lap top case well.  I love the new look reminds me of Goyard.

This has been Dr Seuss week at Sterling’s school so each day they get to dress up as something different.  Sterling has been loving it.  Today was rockstar today.  Sterling had a vision and he did such a great job putting together his costume!

My Etsy pillows arrived and I love them!  Our den is slowing coming together!

This weekend I am so excited because I am attending the Food and Wine Festival.  I can not wait to enjoy some delicious food and wine and the weather is supposed to be amazing!  I ended up ordering this blouse to hopefully wear! 

Oh and my friend Annie (who is the cutest)  asked me to answer a few questions on her blog Home of Malones today- you can check it out HERE!

  1. You should read I'll Drink to That by Betty Halbreich and Swans of Fifth Avenue by Melanie Benjamin. Both are really fun and interesting reads.

    Love that top…and nail polish as well! If you want a great butchers board I highly recommend The Granary in Mt Pleasant. great atmosphere, service, and drinks as well šŸ™‚

    I just ordered the target shoes after seeing yours. Love them but they have a gap between my heel and the top of the back of the shoe–at least an inch or so. Do yours do this? Does it break in?

    You always look fab! I cannot even deal with Sterling-rockstar for sure. And what is it with bathing suits and girls? Carsyn loves them too and constantly checks herself out in the mirror when she's wearing one.

    Jealous of your food and wine tix! Every year I say I am going to pull the trigger and I don't. We almost went to sip last night, but instead hit up Cure.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that has a hard time picking from all the patterns and color combinations that Barrington has to offer. I just love them all!
