I'm not usually one to get fancy for breakfast -- especially when it's a roll-out-of-bed-and-go sort of deal -- but after spending most of the winter in a perpetual uniform of jeans, sweaters and boots or Converse, it felt incredible to shed some layers and wear a dress, especially this one. Technically it's a slip, but easily transforms into day-wear with the addition of a half-slip beneath (snag one for super cheap at the thrift store and never worry again if your shabby underwear is visible through your dress). I've been very thoughtfully selecting a few items to add to my wardrobe this season, and I accidentally wore all of them on this day: A classic leather biker jacket -- a dream super sale find, this lovely dress, and a pair of heeled Chelsea boots. The latter, a Madewell classic, I found for a song on sale from ShopBop last week and snatched them up. A good boot is hard to find, especially for under $100, which is why I haunt sale sections obsessively. These fit the bill perfectly: they're sleek, with a walkable heel, and they'll work for three out of our seasons. I'm all about getting as much wear as possible out of what I own (the boots and jacket have barely left my body since coming in to my care).
If you've been haunting the sale sections too, now is the time to update your closet for the season -- starting today (at 7 AM EST), ShopBop is having their friends and family event, with 25% off merchandise. If you've been eyeing a few special pieces for spring or summer, head on over to grab the discount code and snag them up. I've got my eye on a pair of Frye booties, a Mara Hoffman swimsuit (love this one), and a go-with-everything pair of Madewell jeans. Check out my hearts for more inspiration! The sale runs ends this Friday, April 10th at 4AM EST. Happy shopping!
