Catching Up

Happy Hump Day and Happy November! So much to catch up on, with the biggest news of course being the birth of baby girl. Girlfriend arrived fashionably late, and I had a long induction process complete with some lovely back labor but she was so worth the wait. I'm hoping to get her birth story and nursery pics up for next week. For now, I'll leave you with a few snaps of our sweet girl.

Going Home Outfit

My little "Baby Burrito"


I'm happy to announce that Jill won The Enclosed Giveaway that I had running on the blog right before I was admitted to the hospital.


I'm also excited for the surprise Shopbop sale! Great designer goodies at a fraction of the price plus free shipping all the time has made me one happy shopper. I promised myself no more shopping with the holidays coming up, but I may need to make an exception for this sale!
Surprise Shopbop Sale
Saint Laurent SL 85 Sunglasses - I love the bronze color, and one can never have too many pairs of fabulous sunnies.
Free People Kate Thermal Top - I can't get enough of olive tones this season, and this top brings my love of the OTS look into the fall and winter seasons.
Nakamol Meghan Ring - I'm all about statement pieces, and this ring would be the perfect compliment for all the fun holiday party dresses that are waiting to be worn in the coming weeks.
Free People Rib Slub Long Beach Tank - I picked up this tank last month, and it's super comfy and perfect for layering on chillier days.
Citizens of Humanity The Principle Girlfriend Jeans - Boyfriend jeans never looked right on me, but I'm totally on board with girlfriend jeans. I also love the subtle distressing around the knees - perfection!
Michael Kors Selina Open Toe Booties - Peep toe booties are my absolute favorite, and I'm loving this pair in black.
Michael Kors Miranda Small Bucket Bag - Obsessed with this bucket bag, and at 35% off it's hard to pass up!

What are some of your favorite picks from the surprise sale?

  5. Eeee!!!! Baby S is GORGEOUS and I cant wait to hear your birth story and see the nursery! I will hopefully be sharing all my stuff here soon too, I am down to weekly appointments now and am a month out from TODAY!!! That headband and tutu is so cute, so lucky your mom has that talent! Now I am going to be dreaming about that MK bucket bag and reminding myself that I will be carrying a diaper bag around exclusively for awhile and totally don't need it.
