Back in Birks


 Free People Dress, Levi’s Vest, Birkenstock Sandals

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.

Skirt the Issue


 Free People Top, Anthropologie Skirt, Madewell Sandals, Ray Ban Sunnies (on sale!)

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)!

1. It’s that time of year: weddings, showers, graduation. You name it, there’s a party. And where there’s a party, there’s a need for a dress. This beaded shift dress the perfect piece to wear to all of your springtime occasions.

2. A straw bag is complements even the most dressed up and dressed down Spring and Summer looks.

3. Sunnies. Always. (I love the matte mirrored finish on these Ray-Ban’s)

4. Crop tops are not going anywhere this season; Wildfox’s playful seahorse print brings this top to a new level of fun.

5. Mara Hoffman’s signature graphic prints are so imaginative and emotional; how could you not feel bold and beautiful in this dress.

6. I love how easy cutoff denim shorts are for Summer.

7. A pair of go-to neutral leather sandals.

8. You can never go wrong with dainty gold rings.
