HAPPY WEEKEND

GETAWAY-GRAY MALIN

This weekend marks our first wedding anniversary. (Remember this post?!) On the one hand, time has flown by so it’s hard to believe that it’s already been a year, but so much has happened (we bought our first home, renovated, and moved in just ten months of being married) that sometimes I sit here and wonder how we managed to do it all in only one year. There’s one thing I know for certain: it’s been the best year yet. And I can only imagine that it just gets better from here.

Wedding anniversaries are milestones worthy of a celebration so that’s exactly what we’re doing. We’re marking our first year with a fun and relaxing getaway. This is a trip we’ve been looking forward to all year long. I can’t think of a better way to toast the big day than traveling somewhere new with my husband.

(P.S. This photograph and many others from Gray Malin are currently on major sale on One Kings Lane. Be sure to check out the selection!)

Happy Weekend!

SALE ALERT: SHOPBOP

unnamed-1

Hip hip hooray. This Tuesday brings us yet another Shopbop sale. They’ve marked down hundreds (!) of new items (one of which is this little white Tibi dress I’ve been eyeing). If you’re looking for a spring wardrobe refresh, this is most certainly the sale to shop.

Here’s what you can’t miss:

  • Everyone needs a good pair of black and white heels. The texture on these makes them even better.
  • Speaking  of heels, these are a closet staple. I’d wear these pretty much year-round here.
  • This skirt would work for the office, and it also makes for an excellent party skirt.
  • Here it is: the most perfect black leather jacket.
  • Who’s got weddings on the calendar? This pale pink dress would make for a perfect guest-of look. Or, go for more of a punch and try this flamingo-pink number.
  • I love this little striped tee. The cheetah-print addition is a nice update.
  • ‘Tis the season. Now would be a good time to stock up on your white denim. I’m particularly fond of this relaxed-skinny style.
  • You know what else the warm weather brings? Pool time. I’d love to add this reversible bikini to my closet.
  • One of my all-time favorite Equipment styles – white or black, take your pick!

YOU’RE INVITED: AN EVENING IN CASABLANCA

RONALD MCDONALD I’m so thrilled to invite you all to this year’s Ronald McDonald Young Friends party. Along with my other two co-chairs Meghan and Medley, this is a party we’ve been working on for nearly a year, and we couldn’t be more excited that it’s now just one week away! It’s going to be such a fun night. The Casablanca-themed party is being held next Friday, March 28th from 8 pm until midnight at Union Station. We’ll have cocktails, delicious bites, a silent auction (so. many. good things in this one!), and best of all, DJ Lucy Wrubel will be there spinning tunes on the dance floor. All of the proceeds go directly to the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas. If you haven’t already gotten your tickets, hurry up and do it! These are sure to go fast and we want to see all of you there (on the dance floor, preferably).
