In the final days of the Shopbop sale, I’m giving you one last look at the pieces you may have missed. These five favorites include something for everyone: an everyday bag, a going-out top, a poolside dress, statement heels and a white bathing suit. Stock up before these go back to full price for the rest of the season.

  • This white bag with the ribbon detailing is so hard to deny myself of.
  • A silky cami with a floral print in the coolest color combo.
  • I cannot get enough of canary yellow, as seen in this knit dress.
  • A red heel to add dimension to your spring or summer wedding look.
  • A smocked swimsuit with the perfect pop of primary color accents.

Wishing you all wonderful weekends!

Black Friday Sales!

November 24, 2017


No lines, no traffic, just sweat pants, coffee and my laptop. Who’s shopping Black Friday sales from the biscuit this black Friday?!

L. Avenue sale picks coming your way….I’ll continue to update this post with our favorites from each of the sales below. In between family time and turkey, that is.

In my opinion, here are the best sales to hit up NOW!


The deets | 30% off your purchase

L Avenue picks | Check out the fun detail on these velvet pants. Im all about velvet and these pants are sure to make a statement paired with this winter white top. Im thinking everything cozy right now and love Anthros collection of sweater. I love this one, this one and this one paired with These Mother cropped denim. And just for kick I love these blush sneakers. Anyone needing new pajamas for Christmas morning? Here is your opportunity to grab a pair on sale. I’m loving super soft pjs and these, these and these are so cuddly I would lounge in them all day. Given the holiday season I have to share a few dress selections perfect for any holiday soirée you may have. Love the lace detail on this black number and this velvet ruffle , so not you average LBD. Check out this red lace one? This style is identical to the Self Portrait one for a fraction of the cost. These tassel earrings are a perfect pop to any outfit.

Ann Taylor

The deets | 50% off Entire Site through Sunday

L. Avenue picks | NYE plans Yet? Well if so and even is not, this is a fun party dress to ring in the New Year and for under $100!! And how fun is this sequin pleated skirt paired with this ruffle sweater. This would be a perfect skirt to twirl around on the dance floor. Now that cool weather has arrived in Houston I have been wanting to snag a wamer coat that I can wear for different occasions. I love the high collar and button detail on this black bell sleeve jacket – definitely a classic.  Army green is always a popular color and paired under this blazer and these lace cropped pants would be so chic.

Williams Sonoma

The deets | Select items on major sale–including Nespresso which is rarely on sale, I own this machine and LOVE it! Another great gift are Wusthof knives, which are also on sale. I bought this set when I was 27 and they still do the trick!

Alice + Olivia 25% off site wide! The perfect time to knock out all of your holiday outfits–this gold shift dress, this black jumpsuit, and this maxi skirt to name a few fabulous outfits!

Nordstrom An extra 20% off sale items isn’t too shabby! This Cole Hahn jacket for your man is 60% off! This year is the year for luggage for my family, ours is completely on it’s last wheel. Ha! I love this piece!

And here’s a recap of some sales that have been going on all week! 

J. Crew 40% off sitewide with code THANKU

J. Crew is rarely 40% off so I’m taking this sale opportunity to shop for my fam and grab a few new arrivals for me too!

J. Crew’s gift guide is one of my favorites each year!

For the kids, nothing’s sweeter than an ice cream beanie, pajamas for her and him, and emoji’s are all the rage.

For your Mom or sister, I love this faux fur stole,

For my man, I love this hat (B is for Bret, duh!), this book is legit, a nice portable speaker is always a crowd pleaser, and these are great stocking stuffers!

For me, I just couldn’t resist this festive plaid puffer vest. I have a camo version that I wear every fall for years and get so many compliments. I think this will be my go-to holiday vest for years to come!

And this tartan hair tie would be super cute as a unique, reusable giftwrap embellishment. This tartan leather pouch is a great gift idea that would be cute tied to a wrapped gift! It can be monogrammed too!


The deets: Spend $250 + and save 15%, spend $500+ and save 20%, spend $1,000+ and save 25%

Promo Code: MORE17

L. Avenue picks | for her–these pajamas are the softest and most comfortable out there, this Coveteur coffee table book is perfect for girlfriends and under $50, and every girl loves her Cosabella underthings (can’t say the p word, I just can’t) and this gift set is amazing | for him–a super cool looking wireless speaker which can be used anywhere, a legit backpack that looks good and is uber-practical, a 3-pack of wild and fun Paul Smith socks, a good looking  travel kit for all those 2018 vacays | for kids–who knew that Shopbop had something for everyone? Ive got boys on my mind and Im thinking this fire station will soon be in JZ’s future and these musical instruments are really fun for the littles | for you–loving Santi beaded clutches – a perfect statement to any look and these earrings are a beautiful accessory to any holiday look.


Net-a-porter just launched a major sale with all of the best, current fall pieces up to 50% off! I’m loving this blazer as a fun alternative to a dress for holiday parties! This self-portrait dress is similar to the dress I posted on Insta here and it’s half off! I’ve received so many compliments on my blush pink booties and found these on major sale that also come in other colors too!

For gift ideas, this monogrammed clutch is super fun and under $50! This tote is a great gift and comes in 3 colors.

Tory Burch 

The deets | 30% off your purchase of $250

Promo Code | Thanks

L. Avenue picks | think about sliding your mistletoes into these black beauties for the Holidays. I love the embellished bow and the super fly heel and I would pair it with the plaid dress.  Im equally loving this retro dress and this classic jumpsuit. Both are gorgeous and really perfect for any occasion. I can easily see myself wearing to parties and luncheons. This bold floral print bag is the perfect shade of blue and I would love paired with the embellished bow heels and a classic and simple dress. Talk about a statement this feather bag and sparkly clutch really need no explanation.


The deets | $50 off every $250

L. Avenue picks | The LBD is a perfect statement party dress for any upcoming holiday soiree you have and can definitely carry you into Spring for any Spring wedding or gala. I love it paired with this studded black heel or even this corset clutch. One of my favorite tops also comes in a skirt. I have received so many compliments on this Caroline Constas floral number and the ruffle skirt is cute paired with this cozy sweater or even this burgundy one shoulder. Im not one to wear a lot of hats but maybe if I buy this Rag & Bone one…I will embrace the haute look. As we know, blazers are my jam, but I may make an exception for this leather cropped jacket, which I would totally pair over this top.

Shopbop Sale Begins

November 21, 2017



Let the sales begin! Starting today through November 26th Shopbop is having their Buy More, Save More sale with code MORE17. This is the perfect opportunity to snag your festive holiday dress on sale, as well as any gifts for family or friends this holiday season. Shopbop houses so many designers, home decor and the perfect hostess gifts. I’m excited to practice some shopping math thanks to Shopbop!

I think it is so fun to dress festively for the holiday season. I love the assortment of reds, greens golds, sequins and plaids. So whether Im dressing up for a holiday soiree or down for a lunch or dinner I want to pop my outfit with festive holiday colors.

Last year, I bought a festive plaid ruffle top see post here that I paid with denim and leather pants. Secretly, I’m still loving this top, so some of you may see it in the rotation this holiday season. That said, I definitely want a new top and/or dress to complete my holiday look.  And if I can snag one at a sale price, then the more the merrier!

I am loving the selection of red and green lace dresses. Lace has been on trend for a few seasons now and definitely a look I gravitate towards a lot. I love the romantic and femininity of lace and Christmas is a romantic time of year. I’m also loving the selection of red and green tops, which can be dressed down with denim and up with leather or sequin skirts for an easy and chic festive look. Ive been eyeing velvet pumps for a while now and haven’t pulled the trigger, but I think this sale is the perfect opportunity to snag a pair – and on a sale. I love mixing different textures and velvet is everywhere and so on trend Fall. Velvet pumps, paired with leather pants and a red lace blouse and you have a perfectly festive and on trend look.

No look is completed with a bag and Im loving Santi’s selection of sequin bags! Any of these clutch is sure to make a statement against any holiday look you’ve got.

Some of our faves brands to try to take advantage of during a sale Tibi, Vince, Ulla Johnson, Caroline Constas, McGuire, Levi’s, Farragamo, and Stuart Weitzman.

Happy Shopping!!

Friday Five | Fiancée

August 11, 2017


I’m particularly excited for the wedding we have this weekend. The bride and I go way back to elementary school and several college besties are coming in town, so I can’t wait to see them. Especially with my news: I’m engaged! I couldn’t be happier and hope to share bits and pieces along the way with you here.

  • Venmo may make you efficient and with-it, but does it also make you less generous and chivalrous?
  • The not-so-fun part of being blonde is all the maintenance; protect your locks for the last stretch of summer.
  • Restaurant staff tell all their wildest tales from waiting tables.
  • I found my birthday flower personality read to be spot on. Is yours?
  • If all the nutrition noise is making you drown, read this and be one-and-done.


PS: Don’t miss these sales. I’m still shopping for my new home, so wayfair and Joss & Main are first on my list.
