Spring Fling

Hi guys, happy Monday! The birds are literally chirping outside my window right now and it’s putting me in such a cheery mood. How was your weekend?

must-haves for spring and summer

I grabbed dinner with one of my best friends on Friday night and then turned in early after a long week. Saturday morning I took a spin class and then made the two hour drive to spend the afternoon with my sweet niece – I swear she changes by the day!

I was determined to get outside for a run yesterday morning and while it felt amazing to log a few miles in the sunny, 70 degree weather, I paid the ultimate price yesterday afternoon and evening when my allergies flared up. Between sneezing no less than a hundred times and wheezing for a good hour post-run it left me pretty exhausted (and resembling Rudolph, ugh). My pollen allergy is worse than ever so I’m going to have to figure out how to navigate it this spring because I refuse to stay inside! Any tips or tricks on combating spring allergies?

If you missed the Spring Sale over at Shopbop, you’re in luck! The Shopbop Friends and Family sale is here. It’s a far better deal because no matter if you’re looking to pick up one item you’ve had your eye on or are planning a full on closet refresh, everything is 25% off with code: INTHEFAM.

If you’re looking for something in particular, I suggest searching by designer and narrowing it down from there. And don’t be afraid to use the search bar, either! It’s something I often overlook, but it can really come in handy when navigating a site with as many products to offer as Shopbop.

I picked up this flattering LWD last time around and I plan to wear it with these nude heels from J. Crew (obviously not a part of the sale, but the sizes are selling out fast so I thought I’d share). I also picked up this punchy, pink crossbody bag which I’ve mentioned before. It’s the perfect size and definitely a conversation starter! I’m obsessed with this gingham weekender bag and its counterpart – the makeup pouch. I don’t need another little black dress, but the shape of this one is too good and it would go well with the heels I mentioned above. I’m all about cost per wear (which helps me to justify purchasing $200+ jean shorts – which are now marked down to $156 as part of the sale here) and a pair of distressed denim can be so versatile, especially in the spring and summer months. Dress them up or down!

You can find other must-have spring/summer pieces that are currently on sale in this post.

Friendly reminder (and mostly because not even my 20/20 vision can read the fine print on the photo above): The sale ends Thursday, April 7, 2016 at 11:59pm Pacific Time and items tend to sell out fast! The code to get 25% off your purchase is: INTHEFAM.

      Thank you so much, Elizabeth! You just made my day. I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received on this bag – the color doesn’t go unnoticed! Enjoy your week 🙂
