Archives for April 2014


It’s the sale I look forward to most all year.  Happens only twice a year in the Spring and in the Fall.  I always wait for April’s sale to stock up on all my Spring and Summer needs.  Most of the cute, high-in-demand pieces at Shopbop often sell out before it ever goes on sale so 25% off your entire purchase is pretty great.  Here are some of my picks from this year’s sale!

Painterly prints are in for 2014 and you can take them any way you like.  Bold and dramatic in primary colors or soft and pretty in pastels and neutrals.  I chose the latter.  I loved this dreamy, watercolor-esque print so much I had to get the top and the bottom and then wear them together.  Matchy matchy looks with coordinated tops and bottoms are still okay by me.

I thought this was such a fun and youthful look, I paired it with my trusty backpack and my new ugly sandals (aka birkenstocks).  I’m all ready for Spring now…if it would ever get here.
