the IT list

Happy Friday!  Do you have fun plans for the first weekend of the year?  We have a swanky, couples baby shower tonight and then tons of family time (and Legos) for the weekend.
This is the first Friday I'm participating in a series of posts called "the IT list."  It's a weekly roundup of great posts from fashion, design, and food.  Who doesn't need more of all three? 


Welcome back to 2011's first installment of the IT list... and it's a great start to the New Year for sure! There are some great new additions to the list and a few standbys as well! Take some time to visit each of these amazing blogs!

  • capital barbie compiles the best of trouser jeans that are super budget friendly! This is a classic style that is swinging back into style and is so flattering, check out her picks! (like what you see?find capital barbie on twitter!)
  • one hundred inspirations starts the New Year right with this simple but stylish look from January Jones, all on an affordable budget, of course!
  • the hillside home did her homework and found us the most mouth watering cinnamon roll recipe out there... mmmm, a perfect winter treat!
  • a spot of whimsy featured these gorgeous 'dream girl' prints. the 'migration' print with cranes really caught my eye! so gorgeous and whisical, of course! (like what you see? find a spot of whimsy on twitter!)
  • sweetie pie style has already spotted early spring trends popping up on retailers websites... she is loving the classic camel and denim combo that H&M is peddling, and so am I! (like what you see? find sweetie pie style on twitter!)

  • fashion fixation goes with a bold red/coral top to brighten up any winter day. For the win! I love this outfit! (like what you see? find fashion fixation on twitter!)
  • undeniable style is lusting after these ultra feminine sweater and skirt combos. It's impossible not to and what a great outfit idea for winter. (like what you see? follow undeniable style on twitter!)
  • a delightful design has great tips on how to dress your home for winter. I couldn't agree more... a home definitely needs more coziness in the winter. (like what you see? find a delightful design on twitter!)
  • good life for less translates the spring trend of ultra-flared jeans into simple and stylish everyday outfits! (like what you see? follow good life for less on twitter!)
  • much to my delight resolves to eat better breakfasts each morning (I can relate to that!)... and these delicious, healthy and simple mini-frittatas makes the resolution look very tasty!
