Style Picks for April (+ Shopbop Giveaway!) - CLOSED

 photo SpringEssentials_OrchidGrey_zps6tnhbp0d.jpg
I'm feeling spring in a big way this year. Trees and flowers are blooming all over the city, and perhaps due to the bizarre weather we've been experiencing, the petals are hanging around a little longer than usual. In the past I never gave much thought to spring style -- spring on the East Coast always seems to be either super cold or non-existent, with winter transitioning almost immediately to 80 degree summer days -- so this time around I'm truly embracing the season. Besides spending as much time as possible outdoors enjoying the flowers -- Sunday afternoon runs along the river under the cherry blossoms have quickly become a ritual -- I've been adding a few key items to my closet to refresh my wardrobe.

With the fast-paced nature of my job, I've been in jeans more than ever this year. So I've been on the hunt for the perfect white jeans, as well as a pair that's just a touch more relaxed than the standard skinnies I so often reach for. To pair with them, and with the vintage pieces and dresses in my closet, a pair of interesting-but-walkable heeled sandals, some unique nature-inspired jewelry, the ever-present moto jacket, a great backpack to hold camera equipment and books, and a few fun accessories to keep things from getting too serious (oh how I wish that iPhone case would fit my gigantic 6s plus). Lucky for me (and YOU!) today marks the start of ShopBop's ever-anticipated spring Friends & Family Sale! With everything in-store at least 25% off, it's the perfect time to make good on your must-have list for spring.

To make things even better, this week I'm giving away two (count 'em TWO) $50 ShopBop gift certificates to new ShopBop customers. If you've been curious to try out the site, now's your chance. With free (super fast) shipping and free returns, there's no reason to hold back, and the winners will be chosen before the sale ends, so you'll be able to take advantage.

To enter: Visit ShopBop and create an account then leave a comment on this post saying that you've registered with ShopBop with a link to your favorite item. You have until tomorrow at 12 PM EST to register, which is when I'll announce the finalists on this blog post -- the first two finalists to email me with their full names and addresses and the email they used to register will win the gift certificates! Good luck!


Please note only newly registered ShopBop customers are eligible for giveaway :)

Thank you to all who entered! The finalists were announced and the winners were notified. The good news is that there's still time to take advantage of the Friends & Family sale!
