I can’t believe I’m even writing this post. It’s like how I want to rant about overalls — are they really coming back?! I felt nearly annoyed about that one for a while, but then, something, someone, is wearing me down. I think. Perhaps seeing one too many ultra petite girls pull them off has given me the impression that this 34-year mom wouldn’t look totally absurd. Record: I would.

Now, there’s Birkenstocks. I fondly recall my suede camel pair growing up, and despite initially utterly hating the revival of this trend, I’m oddly warming to it. Like really warming, particularly in the white and black styles. I do have a thing for white accessories, after all. They’re borderline chic yet totally functional, and we all remember, totally comfortable. I suppose does a good quality shoe under $100 ever completely go out of style? {Ok, they’re now a little more than $100 but hey… inflation.} Are they for you? Think you can convert? Weigh in here…

birkenstocks -- trending in black and white

classic black dress // with denim + leather // maxi dress

all white // white tee + black denim (search her site for lots more birks inspiration!) // more denim & leather (try white button down!)


birkenstocks -- style it with denim, shorts & totally casual cool

with skinny denim // with stripes & denim // with a black tee & baseball cap

denim cut-offs // army green vest

outfit: mom on the go

April 21, 2014


How is it Monday already? Here’s an example of a super quick outfit this mom pulled together Saturday afternoon to run a few quick errands. I’ve been sick for two+ weeks with some sort of lingering and exhausting cold, cough, sinus thing so weekends are made for as little thought as possible. If you caught my social posts, I shared that J. Crew Factory had a 50% off sale so after my girl’s haircut we ran over to our new outlets (Palm Beach Outlets=love!) where I snagged this cheery sweater along with some other essentials (my purchases here). I can’t wait to wear this with white denim and wedges but for errands around town, my denim shorts, and new slip-on were perfect. (well until I went home to get my pj’s back on!).

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.
