Happy Friday + link love


1. I don't usually get too excited about designer collaborations, but when H&M announced last week at Coachella they'll be partnering with Alexander Wang, I just about died. His pieces are so simple but poignant and done with purpose and ease, which is what I love about them. I can't say I'll be camping outside an H&M (never say never, though) in November, but I'll definitely be stalking the website for first dibs -- especially when it comes to shoes! In the meantime, here are some of my favorites by him:


2. I was literally laughing out loud when I read this article about paternity leave. The best part is that my husband actually sent it to me. I think the part about watching "Game of Thrones" hit home for him ;)

3. How dreamy/perfectly summery is this maxi dress from Forever 21? When I first saw it, I would've guessed it was by Tibi or an equally covetable brand, and was blown away to find out it was less than $30! In fact, F21 has a ton of really great maxis right now -- I might have to stock up!

4. How bad do you suffer from FOMO? Find out here.

5. Okay, so I know there are a lot of links to clothes this week, but I'm just assuming you're celebrating the fact that you filed your taxes this week/are already looking for ways to spend your refund like I would -- by shopping. Even if that's not the case and you owed money to Uncle Sam, this adorable striped button down from Gap is finally 50% off. Snatch it up while you can, friends!

Shopbop sale!

Shopbop Sale


I feel like there's a certain excitement in the blogger air when friends and family sale time comes around at Shopbop. And really, who doesn't love 25% off designer items that rarely go on sale? Answer: no one. For me, I usually end up with one piece that I've had my eye on for a while rather than stocking up and totally splurging, as that's more my style, but it's a great excuse to shop, no matter how you slice it!

Above are some of my favorites. Particularly, those destroyed jeans and that slouchy tee. I'm holding off on the jeans until after baby, but a great-fitting boyfriend tee will be just what I need in the new days of mommyhood, don't you think? Use the code "INTHEFAMILY14" at checkout between now and tomorrow night at 11:59 PST for 25% off your purchase!

And don't forget! Today is the last day to enter my giveaway for your chance to win a $100 gift card to ASOS! There are two winners, so the odds are you in your favor :)

This dress is so perfect for my 35 week bump. In fact, from here on out I think I'm boycotting pants. I loved being able to toss it on and still feel cute but comfortable. And it was ideal for the gorgeous weather we had here in DC over the weekend. It still gets a little cool at night -- at least for me -- so I loved that it still looked good with a simple leather jacket. I guess I'm not totally ready to let go of my cool weather pieces just yet ;)

Happy Monday!

Get the look:
