The Sunday Brief

April 2, 2017

Dive In // Ok so I know what you are going to say when I tell you about this brand that I have been revisiting lately, “SOO high school”. And I know. I am not disagreeing with you. HOWEVER, they have seriously reinvented themselves and are worth another chance. I just ordered 3.5 bathing suits (the half accounts for the fact that I ordered a high waist bikini bottom and regular rise to see which I like better) for a grand total of $139. Anyway, their suits are SUPER cute and affordable (like one pieces for $40 and separates for $20- I was drawn to the ruffles on this one to mask the no-boob situation and I love how they modeled this one on a curvier body!! And this one is just GORGEOUS. I mean, American Eagle? Really? Well done.

The Poet // My oldest son announced to me this week that he is learning poetry in school and actually sort of loves it. This makes my heart sing because I love writing and feel like we have trouble finding things to do together that we both enjoy. I’ll pass on the wrestling, thanks. I went out and ordered this old goodie stat. And speaking of books, we are reading this one aloud with our kids. SO good.

Spring Chicken // One of my all time favorite chicken recipes – I love a little lemon in the spring. And if you love CHICKpeas, my sister made this side dish last week and said it was amazing.

Spring Uniform // Maybe with a trench over top because it’s still pretty cold here, but here is a no fail spring look. Links to all pieces here. Size down in shoes and size up in shirt (I am wearing the US 4 for reference).

In The Know // If you love Lululemon and Athleta, have you heard of this cool company?

Weekend SALES //

Anthropologie is offering $20 off $100 – my picks here.

Urban having 30% off home – and there home is GOOD! Picks below….a few pieces are in my house tour.

New markdowns at Nordstrom.

Splurge or Save // I picked 6 spring essentials and found eerily similar versions of the same pieces at completely different price points. Click through the lookbook to be blown away…

Snip Snip // Well, Concihairge came to the rescue this week to fix my son’s hair. I took him somewhere on impulse because he actually said he wanted a haircut (which never happens). Lesson learned. Anyway, all is now right in the world thanks to Monica – he wants her to come back every morning to “spike it” because apparently I’m not good. Any who  here is some kid haircut inspo for your enjoyment 🙂 Oh, and P.S. Concihairge is coming to downtown Philly!! Email [email protected] to book!

Exciting News // This has been in the works for a while, and we are excited to announce that we will be offering a personalized styling service. We get lots of reader questions about certain body types looking for certain styles so we decided to make this a real thing. Abby is putting her master’s degree in fashion to the test by curating her own style quiz to give to those who sign up. The results of this quiz in combination with information about body type will help guide us to create a completely customized capsule of closet must-haves! Or maybe you are going on a trip and you want us to “pack” your bag. We can send you customized list of everything you need to bring. Or maybe your workwear wardrobe needs a boost and you need direction. We will have a fee of $75 for this service (first 5 people to sign up get it for $50) – all proceeds will go into our babysitting fund so we can curate your selections without distraction 🙂 Email [email protected] to reserve your spot on the waitlist!

And that’s all we’ve got!

Happy Sunday.
