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!

I’m going to be taking a brief break from the blog today and tomorrow. Why? Because I’m moving. I didn’t intend to not have posts up for today or tomorrow, but the moving process has taken quite a toll and I’m nowhere near finished. We have to be out of this place by tomorrow! Moving really is one of the most painful processes, don’t you think? I always think that I am going to be so organized about it – cleaning out every single drawer, labeling all of the boxes correctly…  but then when that final day approaches, I always find myself scrambling around the house, throwing everything I can in boxes. For those of you that have recently moved, you know exactly what I’m talking about.

The good news is that this will be the last time we’ll be moving for a long, long time. The house that we have been renovating for nearly eight months is going to be finished a week from today! (Check out #projectorangedoor on Instagram to follow along!)  As much I hate to pack, I actually really enjoy the unpacking part. It will be so much fun to get everything organized in the new house. It’s a whole new chapter for us. I can hardly wait.

Happy Weekend!
