Thoughts for Thursday: Current Obsessions

Welcome back to our first Thoughts for Thursday in July! Remember you can write about whatever you want and link up below.    I'm here today with my obsessions of the week again. I think I love window shopping the internet as much as I love actually shopping :)  
First things first I have to report back and tell you all how much I love this suit! I mentioned I had ordered it right before our trip here because I love her one pieces but I wasn't sure about the print and coloring on this one. I will say that the color says cobalt but is definitely more purple than blue, that sort of freaked me out as I kind of hate purple but the suit is so flattering on and it turns out the purple doesn't look too bad on me! 
As you can see I'm not as well endowed as the model but I owned last years version and wore it when I was still nursing and had boobs so it's flattering on both size chests, in my opinion!  

Still loving the white tops this summer and this peplum one is so good!  

In the Outer Banks I couldn't resist popping into the local Lilly store Life's a Beach.  It's so much bigger than mine in Annapolis so I can try everything on.  I picked up another pair of my favorite Callahan shorts in the roar of the seas print.  I'm telling you these shorts are flattering on every body type and they don't feel frumpy with the 5in inseam.  

I also picked up this iphone 6 wallet at the Lilly store while I was there too.  I had been looking for something that I could use at the pool with the kids when I don't need my full purse/wallet but I need somewhere to store some cards, cash, and my phone.  I can fit my phone in there even with it's tough case cover on! 

I've had my eye on these Steven Madden sandals for a few years, I'm not sure why I haven't bought them yet since they're under $50!  I love the style and the black with the tan.  Does anyone have these?  Do you love them?

Being a Maryland girl it's hard to resist this shirt since steamed blue crabs are pretty much a food group here!   They make a men's version and a beach towel... I kind of think I need all three!

I don't think it would be an obsessions post if I didn't have at least one white off the shoulder item, right?!  How cute is this dress! I love the subtle detailing on the dress and the fringe around the bottom.  It also comes in yellow if you want some color. 

Running around with the kids I'm all into cheap sunglasses, yes I love my fancy ones too but I love to have a few pairs of cheapies around that I don't care if they break.  Enter these adorable clear mirrored ones.  I kind of love this look and for only $12 I might have to give it a try.  

How pretty is this blue?  I wish I had seen this one before July 4th because it would have been perfect paired with my red shorts and white Jack Rogers!

The print, the style, and the fact that it might actually work for a tall girl like me! I have found a good romper since my beloved J.Crew one but this one looks like it could work.  

I always love his earrings and these gold ones just popped out at me! I haven't had a big gold earring in so long I thought these might be a fun addition to my jewelry collection. 

How adorable is this dot flounce dress?  I don't know what I love more the polka dots, flutter sleeves or drop waist.  

I have a weakness for affordable striped totes, just ask Kyle.  I love a big slouchy bag that I can just throw a bunch of stuff into and the stripes makes it even better of course. 

Can I get a praise hands emoji for this dress?!  How cute is it?  I love the navy with the pink neckline and the back is even more adorable.  It would be perfect for a summer, wedding, bachelorette party, or date night.  

This is another one piece winner in my book! It's a total splurge but with the ruffle and subtle print I know it would be in my closet for awhile.  

One can never have too many embroidered pieces right?!  Love the embroidery around the neck and subtle detail around the hem.
