New Threads and White Plum Giveaway

by Meghann on October 10, 2014

Looking for a discount? Use MEALSANDMILES for 20% off entire purchase on until 10/20!

Here’s the thing – I love new clothes, hate to spend a lot of money on them, and don’t have a lot of spare time to hit the local mall. I’m also in that weird in-between age (yes, almost 30 is a weird age) where I’m too old for a lot of my once favorite stores and still feel too young for the older, “mom” stores. Honestly, sometimes the mall just leads to a big breakdown of missing my youth, feeling old, and lusting after a giant slice of cookie cake to comfort me. Let me tell you, visits to the mall are brutal.

Lately I’m becoming more and more of a fan of online boutiques that are currently taking over the internet. They’re great because I feel a lot of the clothes are geared towards that weird in-between age (not too young, but not too old) and they’re reasonably priced. As a bonus, I follow a lot of them through my social media channels so I’m automatically alerted when new items are stocked or a huge sale is happening. (Good for my closet, bad for my wallet)

One of those new favorite boutiques is White Plum. I discovered White Plum through a few of my favorite bloggers and was recently sent a handful of items to review. I adore the site because it hits a few of my key needs when it comes to online shopping: large selection, age appropriate attire, and reasonably priced. The constant sales are a huge bonus as well.

First on my list was the Gretel Crochet Blouse:


Please note I was originally sent a medium, but it was a bit on the bigger size. The top runs big, so if you’re in between two sizes (like me) I would order the smaller size.

I selected this top because I needed something that works well with jeans. As much as I *think* I’m a cotton t-shirt and jeans girl, I’m not. (my closet is full of cheap cotton tees I don’t wear, but don’t have the heart to get rid of) I enjoy looser fitting tops that don’t cling, yet still look cute for casual days at work or date nights. This top is great because of the fun texture and layers that make it interesting, yet still comfortable. I’m especially a fan of the cute peek-a-boo back.


How fun is that?

What first caught my eyes when I logged onto White Plum was the wide selection of fun and festive leggings they have for sale. They have fun prints, fleece lined, and every color to match just about any occasion. For a girl who wishes she could live in leggings year around, it was heaven.

So many choices. How does someone choose?

I decided to go all out and selected a pair of leggings full of sparkle and fun. You only live once, right?


These are the Stardust Chevron Leggings in a medium.

We all need a little sparkle in our wardrobe and the leggings arrived just in time for the holidays. They’ll look great with a cocktail dress for the holiday office party or a sparkly top for a New Year’s celebration.


And now onto comfort. The Piko: Devryn Tunic in burgundy, size small.



This top is really just about being comfortable. It’s big, comfy, and great for lounging around the house or running errands. The tunic is designed to pair with leggings and I love the rich fall colors.
Time for the fun part. Don’t forget, use MEALSANDMILES for 20% off entire purchase on until 10/20!
