Shopbop Friends and Family Sale



It’s Shopbop’s surprise Friends and Family sale kids. Happy Tuesday to us all! And for those of us who were off yesterday, there’s nothing better than a surprise sale to get us through those Monday and Tuesday back-to-work blues. Last year I used the sale as an opportunity to stock up on some wardrobe basics that I couldn’t normally afford like a little leather jacket and some dainty baubles. This year I only have one thing on my list – this Free People Fringed Poncho. While it’s available at other locations, typically you cannot use coupons on items like Free People, French Connection and other designer threads. That’s why the Shopbop Friends and Family sale is a total boss. Most items are included in the use of the coupon, and getting 25% off your designer favorites is seriously a little slice of heaven. It’s a great time to do what I did last year – work on your closet revamp and pick up basics. Or throw caution to the wind and grab some of this fall’s trendsetting items that are all the rage right now in boho, fringe and everything and anything plaid! And if you’re one of the lucky ones that has a money tree, check out The Splurge section. What I wouldn’t give for that Mara Hoffman cape! You have to see the back!

The Shopbop Friends and Family Sale only lasts until October 15th….that’s Thursday! You only have two days to get shopping! Don’t hesitate! Go! Now! Don’t forget to use code INTHEFAM25 for 25% off! Shop till you drop!

Fall Bootie Finds

fall-bootie-season-jenn-inspiredFall is in the air friends! Can you feel it? Errr…probably not, especially if you’re in the DC area. I mean, it’s been 90 the past few days with sky high humidity! Indian summer perhaps? Maybe you’re as confused as I am when posts like mine are hitting the web, proclaiming fall to be here in all her fiery, autumn leaves glory. PSL is the most popular acronym right now, and yeah both Halloween AND Christmas candy is on the store shelves. I guess we’ve been duped?! I will say the leaves are already starting to fall. After the yearly trek out and back to South Dakota by truck, I can attest they are also already turning colors. So an early fall I think it will be, hence you better be getting your boot on! My picks below will have your heart singing and ready for those cool autumn breezes, trust me. Continue Reading

Clutching the Past


When I was a little girl, I was in awe of my mom’s closet. Her shoes, her handbags, her clothes. I loved everything. You’d find me practicing wearing her purses on my shoulder and wandering what it would be like to someday wear heels just like her. She had these black bow clip-ons for her high heels that when you flipped the plain, black bow over, rhinestones would appear. Those bows, to me, were pure magic. Continue Reading

Minimalism is the New Black


I have something pretty shocking to share with you all. You might not even believe me when I say it, but I promise you, it’s true. Up until the need to replace a summer dress that completely fell apart (I’ve been wearing this baby like, three times a week), I had not purchased an item of clothing since January!
