Shopbop 25% Off Sale

April 5, 2016

Hi! Despite the heartbreaking loss of our beloved Tar Heels, Wilson and I are surviving. I’m surviving because I’m eating some particularly delicious oatmeal, Wilson is surviving by most likely having a nip or two before lunch. 

But do not despair fellow Tar Heel fans — Shopbop’s annual Friends and Family sale is here! 25% off almost everything with the promo code INTHEFAM. Here are some other affordable fitted wardrobes in London.

Here’s some of my favorite things:

There’s some really great stuff in this sale so poke around on your lunch break. You could find just what you need to brighten your spirits and your wardrobe.

Weekend Outfits

July 27, 2015

This past weekend I traveled to Charleston for my best friend Ashton’s bachelorette party, which was just a lovely time. Charleston is so beautiful and it has been awhile since I’ve spent some quality time with its great shopping and delicious food.

I posted the above photo on Instagram that got a few requests for some outfit details, so I figured I’d let you know wassup.

I snagged this crop top and shorts in Zara while traveling in Spain, but both pieces are sold out now unfortunately. But don’t worry, they have some super similar stuff in stock and it’s on sale right now. Woot. And so are the shoes!

This is what Take #1 looked like. Snort.

Ah, the difference of what real life looks like versus what we post to Instagram. 

Here’s my Saturday pool bathing suit combo. I bought this bathing suit top for major sale on Shopbop and paired with my go-to bikini bottoms from J. Crew. Because they are black you’d never know they aren’t actually a set. My own form of magic.

And then because you can’t go to Charleston and not snap annoying iPhone photos of your food, here’s some of those as well.


Brunch at The Rarebit. Twas quite delicious. This was the special breakfast sandwich of the day — English muffin, two fried eggs, bacon, caramelized onions, fig jam, and Gruyere cheese with a side of potatoes. It was terrific.

Drinks at Husk. This was a “Blinker” — it’s not on the cocktail menu, but you must request it because its amazing. Vodka, grapefruit juice, club soda, St. Germain, and something else that I cannot remember.

Lovely little cheese plate.

All in all, it was a most successful weekend and I loved celebrating my best friend of 14 years. Old friends are the best friends.

Shopbop 25% Off Sale Picks

April 16, 2014

It’s that time of year again — the Shopbop sale! Use code INTHEFAMILY14 and get 25% off almost everything. This thing is DANGEROUS y’all but if know of one or two pieces that you want to add to your closet for the summer, this is the time to get them. Just make sure you don’t give in to impulse purchases. After ordering the dress and hat below, I’m now coveting this maxi and these shorts… and this bag… Oy. Thou shalt not covet, thou shalt not covet… Get thee behind me Satan!

All of these items are around $150 or less, which means with the extra 25% off, your bill is quite reasonable.

Great pair of studs, Gorjana and only $22.

I love these sandals! Chunky heel = wedge-like comfort and they can go with anything. $109!

This dress is baller people. Mixed textures and even a few sequins and it’s only $98. Reminds me a bit of Twiggyshows some leg without being inappropriate.

They call this a “playsuit” — seems a bit dirty, no? — and it comes in both navy and white. Cute little cut out in the back. $155.

These sandals are such a good price — $65 — and are a perfect color for any outfit. Highly recommend.

Great stackable ring… $27

I love the unexpected rounded shape of these frames… $145

This hat looks very cute on the model above, but I was looking for one with a wider brim than a regular fedora, so I will see how it turns out… Thank goodness for free shipping and free returns. All online everything.

Here’s hoping you have the happiest of Wednesdays and be safe while shopping…
