We had a nice weekend with not a lot of plans. Everything seemed to be going pretty smoothly as plans fell into place and we fit in a good bit of relaxation. I celebrated my birthday (a little late) with a friend of mine over lunch on Friday and had the best avocado and shrimp stack. I would love to try and recreate this at home with either shrimp or crabmeat. Has anyone ever tried to make something like this at home?? I need to search for a recipe.
We had another gorgeous day on Saturday and sat outside for awhile that afternoon to enjoy lunch. They had a live singer out there and the kids were so cute watching and listening to the music.
It wasn’t until Sunday that our plans fell apart. We spent the weekend casually packing up for the mountains to catch a flight on Sunday. We loaded up the car, got to the airport with all of our luggage and then found out our flight was cancelled :(. We just had to laugh. We haven’t had the best luck flying out to Vail. There were no options to get on a later flight that day, so off we went back home to try and do it all again today.
I don’t have very many pictures from the weekend at all (because I wasn’t planning on having a post today), but I did try on all the items that I purchase from the Shopbop Sale. So I’ll share my favorites with you and a couple items I’ll be returning.
These are the cutest pajamas my friend gave me for my birthday. The pants are silk and so soft! The brand is PJ Harlow. You can find them here. I would say the pants run big, so size down.
Okay this one is not from the Shopbop sale, but I’m obsessed. This is one of the Lilly dresses that I blogged about last week and I’m so in love with the neckline. It’s so pretty and comes in white too. It makes the perfect dress to wear to a Spring or Summer wedding in my opinion. I sized up in this dress and glad that I did because it fits pretty snug through the waist and hips.
Honestly, I wasn’t sure I truly loved this dress or not when I saw it online. I loved the style of it, but I wasn’t 100% sure on the pattern and then I got it in person. And I LOVE it. I love it so much more in person than in the picture. The colors are so much more vibrant in person. I can’t wait to pair it with a bright pair of heels and cute clutch. I love a good one shoulder and the ruffle is so cute. Runs TTS.
This is a cover-up and comes with a cute sash that ties around your waist that is not pictured. I love the color combo, off-shoulder and pom-poms :). I often times find cover-ups too short, so I liked that this one was longer.
I remember pinning this dress awhile ago because I loved the color and the cut-outs, but never purchasing. I saw during the sale that this dress was on major sale and they also had it in pink. I ordered both colors to see which one I liked better and I loved the yellow on my skin tone! The yellow is sold out now, but pink is available in all sizes.
So I will be returning the pink dress above because I just like the yellow on me better. I also ordered this pink dress from Lilly that I really loved, but will be returning because I really don’t need it. I’ll have to keep it in mind for upcoming events this summer though. I also purchased this adorable purse that I really truly love, but am going to return. I always love to snag a beautiful purse or pair of sunglasses during these big sales; but once the bag arrived, I realized I just really don’t need it. I barely switch out the bags I have already and I’m still using a “diaper bag tote” half the time, so it just didn’t make sense.
That’s a wrap. Did you purchase anything from the sale?? How did you like it?? Pray for us that we make it to Vail today. My fingers are crossed 🙂
