Thoughts for Thursday: Current Obsessions

Happy Thursday Friends! I'm pretty sure I'm already failing at my 2018 goals of posting three times a week on the blog but hoping to get on top of it soon! It's a new year and the theme around my house these days is purge and organize!! In the process of doing this I of course want to get rid of all my clothes and start from scratch haha.  So today I've rounded up some things I've recently purchased or I've been eyeing to purchase. (As you'll see below I'm also ready to get rid of winter but that's not happening for awhile, so one can dream)

I'm loving LL Bean pullovers this year and just snagged this one on sale last week!  I decided on the deep olive color because I realized 1) I don't have much green in my closet, 2) it looks great with jeans or leggings and 3) it's a change from my normal gray or beige ;) It's currently 25% off with the code Winter so you can pick it up for $45!  I think LL Bean runs big and I usually wear a small but go with a medium for their pullovers so I can layer them in the winter. I'm also eyeing this fleece one which is on sale for $60. 

Loving these booties with the perforated side! I really want a pair of more dressy booties as I feel like my current selection is more everyday bootie so I'm considering adding these to my birthday wish list.  

Obsessed with this comfy sweatshirt! Since it's been so cold here lately I'm all about comfy clothes that feel like pajamas but look like a step up from actual pjs ;) This sweatshirt comes in six colors so can keep it basic or go bright.  

My cousin is getting married in California this April and I'm already searching for fun dresses to wear.  This one is top of my list at the moment! I love the fun print and halter style is one of my favorites on me. Plus it has a really low back and that high slit which is so fun. Now I just need to keep up my workout routine for the next three months! 

While we're talking about pretty dresses I'm also obsessing over this gorgeous DVF striped dress.  I absolutely love the colors on this one, but worry that the style will just hang shapeless on me.  

While we're on the subject of warmer clothes I think this jumpsuit would be so fun for our California trip but I worry that it will be too short for me since I'm tall.  I rarely have luck with rompers or jumpsuits because of my height but this one just looks so comfy and could be paired with really fun earrings to spice it up.  

Since we still have about three months of winter here in Maryland let me move myself back to reality and start eyeing up the cold weather gear again. Loving this striped poncho to dress up a basic white tee or button down when I'm hoping to feel a little more dress up as a SAHM.  This could also work on those nice 50 degree days we get scattered here and there as my "coat" It's currently 40% off with the code Fresh because when is Loft not having a sale.  

If you've read here long enough you know how much I love me some stripes!! How adorable are these striped knotted mules?!  These would be such a fun edition to my shoe closet to dress up some every day pieces.  Now I just need the weather to warm up and all the snow to finish melting... 

I just picked up these sunglasses for $29! They're normally $55 and I've been wanting to try this style so I had to get them on super sale!  I'll keep you posted on what I think of them.  I haven't tried this brand yet but lots of people rave about them so I think I'll like them.  

I've always loved the previous years version of this so this one is no different! It's under $100 and has a nice little zipper pouch that comes with it, which I would probably fill up with my cosmetics and mom on the go first aid stuff.  

Obsessed with these new leggings from Zella.  They are one of my go to brands for leggings and workout gear and these are so cute!  I'm boring and tend to stick to black or gray for workout leggings so these would be a fun addition to my closet.  

This adorable striped ruffle sleeve top is on it's way to my house as we speak.  I mean do I really need this for right now, no, but I couldn't pass up the sale they were having and wanted to snag it before it sold out! I do think it will be adorable with jeans or shorts once the weather warms up.  

Since we're on stripes and fun sleeves I've also been eying this one too, you know I can't get enough of blue and white stripes and these sleeves are so fun.  Again since it's Loft it's currently 40% off with the code Fresh.  

Does anyone else get the itch for new clothes in the new year??  I mean I'm always wanting new clothes so I guess I can't really blame it on the new year, but I could try (wink, wink)
