Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Birkenstocks are back, and in a big way! Once Céline debuted the ever-controversial footwear during fashion week, all bets were off, and the likes of Marni, Lanvin and Miu Miu quickly followed suit. Had you asked me two years ago if I could see myself wearing birk’s, I would’ve slapped you straight across the face; but here I am, birk’s in toe (pun obviously intended). Although I paired my new sandals with this Free People slip for a full on hippie look (okay… half on), I think an updated and chic way to rock the trend is with a pair of ankle jeans, a fresh pedi and an ultra-feminine blouse.
I love a good maxi — on the weekends, a maxi dress or skirt is just so easy to throw on and go; I always find myself struggling with what to wear to run my errands without looking dumpy (because we all know leggings and a tee seems to be the look of choice). This breezy silk skirt has a fun print and pairs well with my favorite white tee; seriously, I wear this tee once a week. Don’t miss out on Anthropologie’s free shipping this weekend with code INBLOOM!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; Shopbop is my absolute favorite online shopping destination, and if for some reason I ever make my way out to Wisconsin, I plan to spend a few hours in the original boutique. Their friends and family sales are few and far between, so I like to take advantage of the 25% off discount when the time comes. Since they offer such a wide assortment across most price points and brands, I find it is the perfect opportunity to stock up on some items for the upcoming season, buy a few giftable items, as well as splurge on things I couldn’t typically afford. Check out some of my favorite items below and be sure to peruse the site — sale ends at midnight (use code INTHEFAMILY14)!
