shopbop spring sale! in my cart

shopbop sale // my spring must haves // sarah sherman samuelIt’s my favorite sale of the year… the Shopbop 25% off everything spring sale! It has been awhile since I have shopped for anything non-maternity related so I am EXTRA excited to use the sale to stock my closet for summer. Here are a few of my spring sale must haves that I snatched up in my buying frenzy. I may have gone a little crazy with so many crop tops but I have been missing out on them for the last 9 months and as I thoughtfully explained to Rupe, I am just trying to reach my crop top quota, of course.

The sale only lasts from April 7 – 9th so get a move on!

I love the lasercut pattern on these shorts, and the material, and the fit. ;) I’ve been wearing them any chance I get, to the beach with a bikini in the day, and dressed up with the cuff and bag (also a new favorite, thanks to Rupe shopping my Pinterest Want page… score!) for a night out with our happy hour crew.

shopbop sale!

shopbop sale!I haven’t been doing a ton of clothes shopping lately with my mind and wallet on the house so much, so when I heard about Shopbop’s big sale, happening now, I just had to stop everything and stock up on some new spring & summer duds (ok, I found a few home items in there too, I can’t help it). They are giving 25% off all regular priced items (with code INTHEFAMILY14) and I thought I’d give you the heads up and share what made it into my shopping cart. Happy hunting!

in my bag: los angeles

packing for a staycation, los angeles // smitten studioInspired by my weekend jaunt all over L.A., I am planning a little stay/workcation at a hotel on the other side of town, so that we can escape the construction for a couple of days.

Waking up to wood saws, hammering, and the smell of welding copper pipes maddeningly a touch too early for me every morning is beginning to wear on these tired bones. While Rupe leaves for work for the day, I am at home fielding questions from the crew and trying to work out of my studio with the cacophony of electric tools just outside my door. Oh and there is also the frequent interruptions in running water which has me running to the local grocery store for bathroom breaks. lovely.

I am not complaining because all this noise means progress and I will be so thankful when we move into our new bedroom. However, I think it is time to grab my bag, laptop, current notebook, the most luxurious PJ’s, and a business meeting outfit, and head out for a couple work days on the east side.

in my bag: anniversary date night

anniversary getaway - in my bag // smitten studioLet me start off by saying I am a huge fan of traditions, old ones and especially starting new ones. Tomorrow is Rupert and my 4 year wedding anniversary and we started a few traditions of our own since we’ve been married. The first being that I wear a white dress, we find a pretty spot and recite our vows to each other. This is my favorite. We get married all over again every year, just the two of us.

The second tradition is that we take turns planning a little getaway to celebrate and it’s a surprise to the other every year. This year it is Rupert’s turn to plan, so I am in the dark of where we are headed but my bag is packed and I am so ready to go. I’ve got my date night outfit ready, a gorgeous card from Rifle, a bikini in case there’s a pool or beach, some slinky lingerie, and an overnight bag to throw it all in.

Do you guys have any fun anniversary traditions?
