On our way home from school yesterday I waved and smiled at someone we passed. Lilly asked me why I always smile and say hi to everyone, even strangers. I told her that smiles can brighten the day, and because selfishly, it feels good to smile.

Good morning! I have some fun new arrivals for you today that are total attention stealers. Bonus, they’re all available at Shopbop so you can enjoy up to 25% off thanks to the Big Event discounts.

That little pink enamel ring is so freaking cool, you should see it on the model’s hand. There’s obviously a big sheer/lace dress thing going on right now and that pretty black one up there seems super wearable. It’s even one of Shopbop’s best sellers. And isn’t that patterned caftan on the top row fun?


If you get overwhelmed with big site-wide sales I suggest just breaking it down into different searches. Some of my favorite searches are:


this week’s best sellers

new arrivals

editor’s picks

spring shoe trends

by genre such as dresses or tops


And then I also always search by my favorite designers/brands such as:


3.1 Phillip Lim

BB Dakota

Club Monaco

Helmut Lang

Kate Spade NY


Loeffler Randall

Marysia Swim

Rag & Bone

Rebecca Minkoff

Rebecca Taylor


Tory Burch

The oversized boyfriend blazer, always a good option to keep around in your closet. So easy to throw over fun tees or a dress.

So that creamy top on the right is about perfect. That white beach dress is a party all on it’s own. The dusty blue tunic dress is a total classic and comes in a pretty pink and a yellow, too. Good boyfriend shorts, too. And, and, and, well, all of it. Not shown, but everyone could use a easy swing dress.

So I’ve picked up my running lately. And by running I mean non-aggresive jogging.




That’s not me, but she looks nice don’t you think? I run anywhere from 4-6 miles twice a week. Definitely not marathon status but I feel really good about it. What keeps me going is comfortable and supportive running shoes and rap music. Here’s an example of my playlist…


Eminem: Lose Yourself

Estelle & Kanye: American Boy

Macklemore: Can’t Hold Us

Macklemore: Thrift Shop

Taylor Swift: Style

Eminem: Without Me

Kanye West: Stronger

Wyclef Jean: Stayin’ Alive


I could listen to Lose Yourself on repeat though, and sometimes do. As far as running shoe brands I like Brooks and Adidas the best. Both have great reputations for foot support. I need it for my achilles.  Here are a few pretty pairs.

Those Stella McCartney for Adidas pairs are amazing, don’t you think?

Hey if you have more song suggestions please leave a comment!! Thanks.
