Weekend Roundup

adding Elements of Style by Erin Gates to my collection


Thank you for all the kind wishes on our big news yesterday. I felt seriously loved all day long!


Today and tomorrow I’ll be supporting my fellow Smellie teammates as they run Ragnar McDowell Mountain, a trail run Ragnar-style. I was planning to run with them, but decided to take it easy. Safety first!


I’ve been reading Elements of Style for years. It was one of the first blogs I started reading and one of my can’t miss favorites. Erin’s honesty about both the highs and lows and her fashion and design style keep me coming back. So you can imagine how honored I was to see Erin included one of my Instagram pics of her new book, Elements of Style: Designing a Home & a Life, in a blog post this week! Check it out here and find out how you could win her West Elm favorites.


Gap and Banana Republic have their friends & family event this weekend. Gap has 30% off all purchases (40% for cardholders) and BR has 40% off (certain exclusions apply). At Gap, these black pants would look great with basically any shoe from heels to booties and riding boots. These skinny red cords brighten up a fall/winter wardrobe and these mittens would make a great stocking stuffer. And not to be outdone, at BR this blue blazer is an instant classic, this sweater is soft and cozy (I tried it on this week but it didn’t fit with my bump) and these lounge shorts are my kind of sexy.


At Nordstrom, their clearance sale is in full swing. Lots of jeans are up to 40% off, including these black distressed denim and these Paige jeans in black. These rag & bone grey booties aren’t cheap, but at 40% off are a great deal. I’ve tried them on and they are as comfortable as the reviews indicate. If only they came in my size! These black heels would look great with a skirt or dress and these black pumps are so versatile.


Happy weekend, thanks again for reading!
