Wednesday Wish List

With last week’s launch, regular programming got a little side tracked so I’m happy to be back today with a Wednesday Wish list full of perfectly preppy and fun spring pieces. I’ve been picking up lots of pieces perfect for warmer weather of recent but with trying new brands comes returning a lot unfortunately as most of what I have ordered hasn’t fit me right. The price one pays for online shopping I guess…but also why I generally shop from retailers that offer free return shipping (Shopbop, Nordstrom, ASOS…)

Of note, I have added loads of new items to the new + improved section of the site so be sure to check it out (particularly the Under $100 section)!

Pleated Halter Top // Woven Pom Pom Strapless Top //Rebecca Minkoff Mini Crossbody (the perfect neutral!) // Strapless Satin Romper

Solimar Sandals //

Pave Double Ring //

Pink Sunnies // Sunglasses Storage Box // Lace Dress // Pearl Tassel Earrings

Nike Sneakers // Rosegold Watch (only $55 and so chic!)

One of the best parts about having roommates? Seeing them wear an outfit you love and being able to snag it and replicate it for work the following week! Bridget and I have known each other since college and for the past year have called each other roomies and often raid each other’s closets. We also both snagged these heels last year so I was quite literally able to copy her look head to toe. Whatever will I do when I don’t have roommates!? (Let’s not think about it…) She picked up this fun floral top at a local boutique aptly named ‘meg’ in our neighborhood but despite its name I still have yet to make it in but both my roommates have such cool pieces from their signature line. It’s on my NYC to do list for sure and until then I’ll borrow this top that’s the perfect style for Spring and summer.

I know I noted that wit & whimsy would be “under construction” as of today, but as with all projects, timing sometimes shifts so I hope you’ll bear with me this week. I returned yesterday from Dallas where I attended a 3 day conference aimed at helping to make this blog even better. I was overwhelmed but inspired and came back with quite a to do list but found it perfect timing as I prepare to launch my new site!

Rarely do I buy something in multiple colors but when it works well, a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, right? This Joie Alicia tank became a wardrobe front runner last summer so much so that after living in it in black(see here, here), I picked it up in this pretty sage color. I love how it pairs perfectly with the soft floral color scheme on this skirt I picked up for Grand Cayman however didn’t end up wearing while there. Naturally once the weather hit 60 degrees though it was time to bare my ridiculously pale legs and debut a spring look. More floral midi skirts are linked below. It’s such a feminine shape for a skirt and so ladylike that I know I’ll be wearing this particular one throughout the summer.

This jacket I received as a thanks for my participation in this collaboration and while I certainly didn’t need another for my collection – I love it. It’s under $90 and the distressing and fit make it perfect for this season.

Hope you had a great weekend! I had a Sunday Funday with my roommates in bed following our celebration of Easter so I will be paying for that as I start my Monday but sometimes you have to throw your to do list out the window and focus on fun, am I right? (as I reach for Advil…)
