Things I Love Thursday

This Week's Favs

Happy Thursday, friends! Make it a good one… my favorites this week (along with this entire line, of course!)

ONE// J.Crew Silky Tee: Just a basic tee to wear over white jeans in the summer, dark jeans in the fall, and easy to dress up with heels, flats, or sandals. Versatility, with multiple color options, at its best!
TWO// Steve Madden Heels: As we know: least trendy person over here. But this neutral, lace up heel look has been increasingly growing on me and while I’m not ready to spring for something like this (for more reasons than one…) think this Steve Madden pair is simple enough with a little kick, which is exactly what my closet needs. I’m not sure how comfy LOFT heels are, but this pair is slightly cheaper (on sale today!) and with a 1/2 inch lower heel, which to me is a lifesaver. Any experience with LOFT shoes?
THREE// L.L. Bean Pullover: The old school L.L. Bean logo makes and appearance and it’s amazing! This pullover has been on my wish list for months. It’s year-round appropriate (I’d probably go with the grey, because neutral), and like most outerwear of its kind, layers really well. From the looks of it and past experience with similar L.L. Bean pullovers, I’d say size up!
FOUR// Design Darling Topiary: Okay, so who’s with me… a good topiary is impossible to find! I’ve been on the hunt for over a year and Mackenzie finally restocked one of her bestsellers. I’m torn between this and one of the taller ones she used to have (like this) and while it seems pricey for an accent “plant,” is fairly standard if you want one that doesn’t look like plastic. Style it on a bookshelf, over coffee table books, on the mantle, or on a coffee/side table!
FIVE// Hanuel Cuff: Hanuel is a fairly new to me brand and not only are they locally-based, but they carry a wide range of styles and products that makes it easy to shop for yourself and others. I’ve been re-wearing the same statement bracelets repeatedly and think this one (on sale for $15, and free shipping!) would be the perfect summer piece. Their prices are modest across the board and there is a happy mix of classic + trendy…which makes for an ideal shopping situation.
