A couple Sundays ago, Nate and I met my family at the quad on University of Washington’s campus to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. It’s a Seattle ritual and signifies that spring has officially sprung. I decided to fully embrace the blossom theme and dress in my new favorite floral tank, pink trench and white jeans, which I had been waiting all year to wear and was so happy the time had finally come. This outing totally inspired me to start shopping for the warmer weather and I found myself being drawn to light pastels, neutrals and the perfect pair of cropped denim in an off white or cream color. I think white denim is a staple, but what about eggshell or ecru? It hadn’t occurred to me that this could be a cute addition to my wardrobe until I spotted these cuties online at Shopbop during their sale.
SIDE NOTE! For those of you that didn’t know, Shopbop is having one of their amazing sales where you get 20 percent off purchases under $500 and 25% off purchases over $500, with the code EVENT19. It’s only for a couple more days (ends April 12th at 11:59PT) so get shopping!
Ok, so back to what I found…I also grapped another pair of cropped denim but in a light blue wash, this awesome backpack in a pretty light brick color and these gorgeous suede blue navy pumps, which I have been looking for and finally found! All in all, I love what I got and know that all of these pieces will integrate nicely into my current wardrobe, which is always my main goal.

Up until last week, I had patiently been stalking a certain pair of shoes that were basically sold out on Shopbop for months. And then, miraculously last week my size became available! I’m referring to the sneakers you see in the photo below. These red, white and blue Tretorns had my heart the moment I set eyes on them. The best part was that I knew they would live up to the hype I had created in my head, because I already own a pair in a different color-way, so I knew they would be comfortable and fit perfectly.

Now onto these cutie Converse high tops! I own the same pair in black but after seeing them on my friend Erin, I decided I wanted to look as effortlessly cool as her, so I scooped up a pair for myself. I really love how they look with these cropped jeans, but I think they will also look great with a pair of dark skinny jeans or even a denim skirt when the weather gets warmer. Along with these two new pair of shoes, I also finally got a pretty pair of rose gold sparkly huggies for everyday wear and a pair of wooden beaded hoops, which will look so cute for the summer.
Right now, Shopbop is having their huge Buy More, Save More sale, so you the more you spend, the more you save! So if you guys are in the market for some new fun things for spring, hop on over to the site and check out the goods! The sale is only going on now through the 3rd, so hop to it!
Hi friends, I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! My family and I just got back from Leavenworth, which was so beautiful and relaxing, but I’m also looking forward to having a couple days left to hang at home on the couch watching Christmas movies and drinking hot cocoa, before Monday rolls around again.
I am sure that you guys are probably getting bombarded with Black Friday sales, but I just wanted to share a handful of items I found (under $150!) from the Shopbop sale that are still in stock and super cute for either yourself or a gift for a loved one!

Truth be told, Nate and I began planning parts of our wedding before we were even engaged. We were friends for a long time before getting together so once we started dating, the whole process just happened fairly naturally. We didn’t know all the intricate details but we knew we wanted things to stay fairly simple and cost efficient. One of the first topics that popped up first was the guest list and whether or not we wanted to send out paper invites or use an online service. Luckily we both agreed that by sending them online, we would not only save money, but it was more environmentally friendly in the end. Win, win!
I started by looking at Paperless Post since I use them for every party and gathering already and really liked their wedding invite options. I love that you can customize them to your liking, plus they have a really pretty selection of designer styles, including Rifle Paper Co, Kate Spade and Crane & Co. I had already considered reaching out to them to see if they wanted to collaborate on a post about the beginning steps of our wedding planning, but they beat me to the punch! I have to say I love it when projects effortlessly fall into place with a brand or company that aligns with my style and aesthetic, and this is definitely one of them.
I mocked up a couple invites below that I thought were pretty and elegant – which one is your favorite?
The September Shopbop sale is here, which runs from 9/26-9/29 and is offering 20% off all orders under $500 and 25% off all orders reaching $500 or more, with the code STOCKUP18.
Below are the items I ended up buying from the sale, which I can NOT wait to style and share with you guys. My favorite thing to buy in general are always accessories because they can change an outfit instantly with minimal effort. I plan to wear these pretty bralets under oversized slouchy sweaters and pair the hats, backpack and shoes with my trench or a leather jacket. You might have also noticed a color theme happening here…give me all the neutral and earthy tones, amiright? Eeeee!!! Just writing about this makes me so excited for the fall and my favorite month, October. Bring on the crisp, autumn weather!
Shopbop is having one of their epic sales, and it happens to be one of my favorites, because the more you spend, the more you save!
