Friday Finds: Vol. 5, No. 6

Happy Sunday! I meant to hit publish on this post on Friday evening, but ended up going over to one of my girlfriends’ houses for some much-needed gal time. It was a pretty low key weekend over here, but honestly just what I needed. I got a few things done around the house (hanging some art, laundry, and putting out some of my fall things), went to my friends’ block party in our neighborhood, watched a lot of football, and took it easy. It’s going to be a busy week with a lot to get done because we’re going to Italy on Friday!!

Trend to Try: Barrel Pants

Barrel pants, balloon jeans, this style of pant has a bunch of different names. Essentially, they are a wider leg denim that tapers in at the ankle, creating a slightly curved silhouette.

I’m just as shocked by this post as you are. While Gap used to be heavy in my rotation tenish years ago, I admittedly fell out of touch with the brand over the last few years. When I lived in NYC, my first office building was right now the street from a Gap (at 59th & Lex, no idea if that location is still around) and I would always peruse on my lunch break or after work. In fact, I hosted an event at their Herald Square location in 2013 — one of my first pinch me moments with this blog! There are a few Gap things still in my closet… My trusty red sunglasses and a bunch of essential tees, but that’s probably it after this many moves and rounds of closet clean outs.

Labor Day Sales

I hope you’re enjoying the day off today! Personally, I’m in the mood to get organized and get sh*t done, so I’m planning on working most of the day to get the week started on the right foot. I sent out a few of the early Labor Day sales that caught my eye my email subscribers last week (you can get on the list here!), but I’ve seen soooo many good ones not to share them all here!
