It’s time to shop for fall! I think the Shopbop buy more save more is the perfect time to not only get classic pieces for the next season buy throw in a few of those trendier items to push your cart over the edge to the next saving bracket!
In my shopping cart:
Vince Sweaters – they are my favorite and always come in the richest colors!
Loeffler Randall Shoes – this past spring I finally got the gold knot heels and I know understand why people have multiple pairs. They are so comfortable and go with everything, I now want the flat sandal too.
Staud Dresses – the fit of their dresses is just next level – so flattering!
Cashmere Wraps – talk about something that will last you YEARS!
Mother Denim – when in doubt, get a new pair of high-rise jeans
Okay I know it is a little nuts to admit I am already the majority of the way packed for our honeymoon in April but I am nuts soo…whatever! I am sharing today because I don’t want these gems to be sold out by the time April rolls around!
I have a dear friend who graciously gifted me a Zimmerman bathing suit and y’all I would 100% pay full price for one now. The material is soo thick, holds you and makes you feel secure – not “I am half naked in a flimsy piece of stretchy material”.
We have booked our honeymoon which means the search for bathing suits is ON. I have never gotten into bathing suits, I don’t love how I look in them (my own issues I am aware) so I never have invested in a good one. Truly, don’t think I have ever spent more than $30 on a bathing suit in my entire life! But that has to change because even with my cheapies there still isn’t one I pull out and know I will feel good in.
While on my deep internet and IG search I came across an article titled “I have a small chest and tried on a bunch of swim suits to show you which is best”, I thought score this is going to be great….the girl did NOT have small boobs. Like her editor needs to reevaluate their definition of small boobs and give me a call for reference. SOO with that, I look to IG to ask you all what your favorite swim brands are for small chests. Here is what you said:
Marsyia: Can we call her a classic yet?
Solid & Striped: They always do such fun stuff!
Jade: This is a new to me brand and V cool girl!
Hunza G: I have had a shopping cart open with the thin strap one piece in it for weeks! But honestly I am having trouble pulling the trigger because there seems to be a lot of booty exposure!
Andie Swim: This one I cannot stop getting IG ads for and their one pieces are beautiful and look super flattering! You take a quick quiz on the site and they tell you which they think would be best for you!
Mara Hoffman: Another I view as a “classic” – her coverups / beach dresses are also soo good!
Zulu & Zephyr: Another new to me cool brand that has beautiful colors and ribbed fabric!
Peony: This one keeps coming across my searches and Net-a-Porter has a ton on sale!
Skye & staghorn: Of course one of my coolest friends sent me this one! Marsyia pricing but (imo) cooler prints.
American Eagle/ AE Swim: Talk about a classic! I think I have one from a few years ago, their price point is so great and they always have fun prints!

Well this is a wild blog post to write considering I have had this blog since 2012 and have probably talked about a few different boyfriends on here!! Gotta kiss a lot of frogs right…? Quick summary of the proposal, Mike and I had a week long Jackson Hole trip planned for a few months and I really thought he was going to propose there. Two nights before I was in a terrible mood all day and kept saying “we are going to walk off this bad mood, let’s go!” and I really tried to get out of it. A few blocks in I got the pep back in my step- he knows me well. So, prior to leaving Mike put on real clothes, khaki shorts and a non graphic tee – I asked him why he was getting so dressed up and he said he had to change the ju-ju for the Yankees game. Mike is a huge Yankees fan so I didn’t think twice. So we get to the mid-point of our walk, which is the prettiest area in our neighborhood, and he goes “the reason I got so dressed up is….” and got down on one knee! He had Bailey hiding behind a tree snapping photos, it was so perfect!
We left two days later (on his birthday) for our trip and it was PERFECT. Any men reading this – propose BEFORE the trip not during. The entire week was a dream and the stress was off both of us.
Now, if you know me you know I have zero chill or patience so the wedding was practically planned in the next few days. We decided on April 2021 for a few reasons one being, we don’t know what the future holds and want to begin our lives together. We understand it is beyond a tricky time and many people will not attend and that is okay with us….and on a lighter note I have always wanted to get married in April! Now that all that business is out of the way, let’s move onto the fun stuff!!
We are getting married in April at our favorite place, Tiny Boxwoods! I am truly giddy just typing that – eek! As you can tell from the mood board, it is going to be a giant garden party! Will do more on vendors, bridesmaids, engagement photos, how we made decisions next!
Below is all of the advice people shared on Instagram:
