OK, ladies… move fast. J. Crew Factory is having one of its epic (yes, I really mean epic!) sales with 50% off the whole store. Palm Beach Outlets recently opened near me so I hustled there this morning with my little girl in tow to check out the selection in person. It’s so good I had to bust out this post to inform you! You should know… It all started the other day when I discovered they had the scalloped dress for little girls (remember mine here?), and the idea to coordinate had me in crazy mom mode. Then I saw that they have the “punk floral” from last year’s collection. Last year, it took me months to warm up to the bold floral that by the time I did… sold out. I didn’t miss out this time! Check out below for our purchases. Sizes are selling out (this happens every time), so don’t debate… I’ve sadly missed out in the past so forwarding you the wise words.

FOR ME // 

Scored this floral light-weight sweater (perfect with white denim!), and these floral shorts. The fit and material is amazing.

Striped baseball-style sweater? Good thing I didn’t see this in person. It’s perfect with cut-offs even in summer.

The shorts are nearly identical to J. Crew’s for way more. Here’s the solid version of the florals I purchased.

Added these cool pants to my wardrobe; love the casual yet professional vibe for work or weekend.

Do not miss out on this dress; it’s perfection. I took home the lilac.

Here’s that scalloped dress; do I get the pink so match my girl’s? I already have the navy. Such a good dress.

Ah, the jewelry! I resisted but there are so many way gorgeous necklaces under $35. I got this necklace last month… so versatile!



This tee is the cutest thing. Ok, they all are but my girl saw this one online first so we stalked it out.

With lots of swimming in our summer plans, we scooped up this adorable suit. Love it.

My girl’s favorite (she wore it out of the store!): this sweet stripe + ombre dress. Girl has good taste.

I adore these shorts for camp and summer; sadly, miss personality wasn’t exactly on board.

Ok, the scalloped dress in her size. I mean, there’s no chance I was walking out of the store without it.


That’s about it folks… a big haul but lots of great stuff for spring, bright colors, bigger sizes for her, and more. My guy got a few things, too, of course!  Wish they had baby sizing at Factory, too.

shopbop sale

OK, are you guys Shopbop addicted, too? I might have a secret love affair with online shopping (ok, not so secret anymore) with my favorites that are shops that offer free shipping and returns — primarily Shopbop and Piperlime — or are close enough for easy returns. Anyway, I digress. Shopbop is having its mega huge Friends & Family sale with 25% off the entire web site, through today. Use code INTHEFAMIL14 at checkout.

TAGG’s favorites here:

Yes, I fully just splurged on this amazing leopard pajamas set. Obsessed.

Update that underwear drawer with Hanky Panky… so many great styles!

These espadrilles are my favorite; I have three styles and counting. They’re oh so perfect for weekend.

The silver version of the wedges in yesterday’s post are a must; I’m debating this pair as well.

I’ve been eying this new Tory Burch shape (with adjustable strap)…  the camel and orange colors are so covetable!

The perfect pair of white denim, in a classic style.

OMG, this tank is my new favorite find; the colors are so good, and how fun is that back detail? The pink is on its way to me. Score.

Anything Kate Spade has me swooning. For example, is this ultra dressy watch perfect for wedding season or what?

Could these heels with tassel detail be any more special? Love.


strawberry avocado tacos

April 16, 2014

From Alyson: It’s been a few weeks since our last recipe post, and this is such a fun one to welcome spring (hopefully there’s no snow where you live!). Libby is back sharing this super creative and delicious recipe — I’ve loved most of these ingredients mixed in a salad so genius to do them up taco style! — and we’re also linking up with a few more bloggers who are sharing delicious recipes using spring’s most in-season fruits and veggies. Keep reading for all the yum fun.

strawberry avocado tacos

Libby: Every strawberry season, I search out a new, exciting way to use strawberries. This year, I discovered two new recipes. The first was a super complicated, super fancy strawberry floats with Prosecco sabayon. While delicious, they took me hours to complete.

The second is a meatless, zippy and fun mix of flavors in a taco format. Inspired by a recipe for strawberry tostadas on the California strawberry council web page, I adapted the recipe to create a fun taco with a lot of flavors and textures.
