Purple Peplum + WW Link Up

Happy FriYay!  I'm so excited for this weekend because we are headed to Cape Cod for a little family get away.  We normally make it to the Cape every summer, however, last year we had to cancel our plans do to a little insect infestation.  (If you have been following me, you may remember that the twins, somehow, managed to get head lice).  Since we weren't able to get to the Cape last year, it makes our trip this year more exciting!

Now about my look! I have been obsessed with peplum tops, but hadn't yet added one to my wardrobe because I could never find one that fits well.  Being tall, and well endowed, they always fall too short, giving an awkward, crop top feel.  However, when I saw this one from Zaful, I decided to give it a try, and I'm so happy that I did!  I love the boxy fit, the length is perfect, and I'm obsessed with the color.  It is also available green, white and burgundy (which would be perfect for the fall).  Although I have been wearing this peplum tee non-stop with denim shorts and sandals, I decided to show you an easy way to dress it up, making it perfect for grabbing drinks withe the girls (or a family dinner when you want to feel more put together).  I paired it with a skinny jean to balance out the boxiness of the tee, then finished my look with a statement necklace and heels, which gave the tee a dressier feel.  It's an easy, comfy, yet stylish look.

The Perfect Cold Shoulder Blouse + WW Link Up

Cold Shoulder blouse

By now, I'm sure you're all well aware that I have an obsession with cold shoulder tops.  I can't stop adding them to my wardrobe, and I'm so happy that they haven't (yet) gone out of style.  I just hope you don't get tired of seeing me wear them!  I recently added this Alice & Trixie cold shoulder blouse to my closet, and it is hands down my favorite for the shoulder baring style.  Not only did I fall in love with the cut, but the ruffle detailing adds a fun, yet feminine feel.  Plus, is this color not the prettiest shade of green?  It's a perfect color to take you into the fall, but if green is not your style, it is available in black too.  I paired it with my favorite high rise black jeans, and finished my look with my Chloé Marcie bag and lace up sandals for a perfect date night look.

Although this top makes a great addition to your fall wardrobe, you can wear it now by pairing it with white jeans and a nude sandal.  Tell me, are you tired of the cold shoulder trend yet? 

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.  I'm headed up to the lake to soak up some sun and beach time.  I just hope the weather cooperates.  Summer is going by way too fast, and I need to enjoy the rest of it while I can!

From Beach to Dinner

Later this month I'll be headed to Cape Cod for a little vacation with the family, and you can bet that this printed shift dress will be coming with me.  The boho feel makes it perfect for a beach town, plus it can be styled several ways, making it a great piece to pack.  Not only can I see myself wearing it as the cutest beach cover up during the day, but all I have to do is add a pair of wedges and some fun jewelry, and I have an easy look for dinner.  I added a thin belt to give the dress a little more shape, and finished my look with my Veggani tote.  This bag has been perfect for the beach this summer, plus it's reversible, so it's like having two bags in one!

Summer Neutrals + WW Link Up


*This post contains affiliate links.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Thank you for supporting the brands that I love here on Threads for Thomas.

There is something about summer and all white outfits that go hand in hand.  They're crisp, clean, sophisticated, and can be worn for many occasions.   I know a lot of people shy away from wearing all white, as it can be hard to keep clean, especially when you have young kids, but as long as you're wearing items that can go in the washing machine, you're all good.  I actually have to worry more about spilling on myself than my kids getting me dirty, as I'm a total klutz.  You have seen these white skinny jeans multiple (okay, millions) of times on the blog now, as they are my favorite skinnies.  I just love the fit, and the fact that I can wash them after ever wear.  It's been three years that I've had these jeans, and they're still in excellent condition.  They are currently on sale at Shopbop for $44, however sizes are limited.  My tank is another wardrobe staple that I've had for several of years.  It's from Monrow, which is a favorite of mine for tees and sweatpants.  Not only do I love the fit, but it's so soft, and also an item that I can throw in the washer and dryer.  For a transitional fall look, I added my grey BP. cardigan that I purchased from the Nordstrom sale.  Unfortunately, this sweater is currently sold out, but I found a great alternative that I linked below.

There are only 3 days left of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before prices go back up, so if there is anything that you've been eyeing, make sure to get it now.  I've linked my top 10, in stock, must haves below.
