shop the look
How fun are these sleeves? I couldn’t help but flutter them around. I’m loving the statement sleeve trend this Spring (see this post). It takes an otherwise classic piece and subtly adds a fun little trendy aspect. I tend to wear this shade of blue with white, especially in the Spring, but I wanted to darken this up and wear black accessories. I thought the black would be a nice contrast to the feminine ruffle details of this dress. I looked at a brighter statement earring for this dress, but wanted to keep it more classic so I went with these black and white stripe drop earrings. These come in like 12+ colors and are the perfect addition to any outfit. If you’re wearing a statement shoe or bag, these earrings are the perfect way to coordinate or to add a statement all on their own.
Speaking of this dress, it’s from one of my fav online shopping sites who just so happens to be having a giant bi-annual friends + family SALE. Shopbop is currently offering 20% off (yes, even items already marked down) for purchases under $500 and 25% off purchases over $500. YESSS! There is so much good stuff on this site and one of the things I love about it most is that there is SUCH a wide range of prices. At checkout, use code ‘Event17’ but hurry! You only have until the end of the day Friday and stuff goes reallllly fast. I’ve sorted through far too many pages of the site for you and broken down my top picks by category as follows.
Shopping on sale is like making money, right?! Right. Happy Shopping!! I thought that this would be my first five day work week in a few weeks, but turns out.. I have Friday off! If it weren’t for a colleague and a reminder e-mail, I would have been sitting up alone at work wondering where everyone was. Yay for having no snow days this year and getting these beautiful Spring days off. I can’t wait to be oh so productive and enjoy the gift of time. We are in town this weekend and have some things to do between me shooting, running errands, celebrating Maddie’s first birthday, a wedding shower for a friend of mine from high school, and Easter festivities. I hope that you all are having a great week so far! XO
