Oh hi. My name is Shannon Willardson and sometimes I blog. You guys! Sorry I’ve been so M.I.A. lately! I unexpectedly had to fly home to Boise last weekend, and then I returned home to us being right smack-dab in the middle of a move. Ugggggggg. Is there anything worse than moving? Just shoot me now how bout.

On a more relevant note – how amaze balls are these white distressed jeans from Topshop? Are they not cute as can be cute? They’re also crazy comfy, believe it or not! So if you’ve been pining away for a pair of white jeans but haven’t been able to find any you love yet (aka this was ME for several months), I’d highly recommend giving these a try. And don’t even get me started on that there jacket. It’s from TopShelf Style, one of my fave boutiques ever. Yeah. They got it goin’ on.

I hope you’re all having a killer week so far! I am headed off to bed now, given that it’s 12:40 a.m. and I can’t keep my eyes open OR form complete sentences. Good night!

Have a ‘Wish a magic fairy would come put my house together so I wouldn’t have to do it’ Wednesday! 

Thanks so much for reading.

Shopbop Sale


K guys – if you ever have moments where you think to yourself ‘Man, I sure would love a pair of Hunter Boots, but $148?!’ or ‘Someday I’ll own a Tory Burch bag‘ or ‘That leopard Clare V. clutch that every blogger on the planet has tho… if only!’ then I am here with pee-your-pants-exciting news: it’s SALE time at ShopBop! And what does that mean? It means that NOW is the time to pull the trigger on the higher-priced items your little heart has been pining away for all these weeks/months/years. Through March 7, get 15% off orders of $250+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off $1000+. May not sound like much of a discount, but even just 15% off on these higher ticket items can make a pretty nice difference. Below are some of my faves. I’m pritttttty sure I’ll be buying this Rebecca Minkoff handbag (something *I’ve* been coveting for many many moons) and possibly this killer denim (under $100!). Happy Shopping!

Instagram Roundup

March 3, 2015

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Husband and I are right in the middle of moving, which equals wooooooof, right? Is there anything worse than moving? Ug – shoot me now. To add insult to injury, we’re moving into a shoe box in an effort to try to save as much as possible over the next year so that maybe, maaaaaybe we can buy a friggin’ house here in California before we’re 70 years old. Man alive. It’s beautiful as can be here, but boy do you pay for it.

Anyway, enough whining from me. Here’s what I been wearing lately on Instagram! If you’re not already following along, you should be! And if you wait a sec for the dang things to load, you can shop all of these looks below each pic. Happy shopping!

I had the opportunity to team up with Lou & Grey – one of the sister brands to Ann Taylor and Loft. You guys – how did I not know about this brand sooner? Have I been living under a rock?! It’s sooooo good! Such good stuff. Baby Jack and I were asked to come take a look at their brand new store location in nearby San Jose. What ensued was what I would describe as the full shopping experience: beautiful store, beyond-lovely and helpful sales people, and most importantly, beeeeeautiful merchandise. If you love yourself some classic, high-quality neutrals, Lou & Grey is your place. I walked out of the store with this classic, comfy, striped (#winning!) sweatshirt and these on-trend gray jeans you’re seeing in these pics plus these jeans (also ridiculously comfy), this adorable jacket, and this fail-proof classic tee. But don’t worry that if I could have, I basically would have bought the entire store. You can shop the rest of my favorites below. And if you’re in the Bay Area, be sure to go check out Lou & Grey’s new location at Santana Row. You won’t even regret it. Not even a little bit.
