Happy Weekend Friends! It’s been a little while and I apologize for my radio silence. But I’m back and happy to announce some exciting life changes for the Sopp household over the last few weeks. I honestly couldn’t wait to back here to update all of you on what’s been happening. First off, we moved! We didn’t move too far from Brookline, just a few miles away to Newton (Newtonville), and we have become absolutely infatuated with our new neighborhood. We’re surrounded by great parks and are within walking distance to some favorite shops and restaurants. Brian’s commute to work is also a lot easier giving him about forty minutes of his life back that was previously spent on the subway. We have so much more space and the kids are absolutely loving all the new square footage. Although I loved our Brookline condo I’m so happy to be able to be in a place that affords more room for the kids to run around, gives Brian his own office and gives me a bigger kitchen that more than two people can actually occupy at a time.
Secondly, I am transitioning back to practicing optometry full-time and have been interviewing with different groups in the Boston area. I’m thrilled to tell all of you that I just accepted an offer from Atrius Heath (Harvard Vanguard) and will be starting to see patients at the end of Summer. Atrius Health is a large multi specialty healthcare system with locations all across the Boston area and it is going to be a true privilege to practice there. I plan to still keep this site going and look forward to once again getting back into eye care full throttle.
There are a lot of fantastic sales going on this Father’s Day Weekend that I’m excited to share with you. As always, I’m sharing sale details as well as a few of my favorite selections from each one. I hope you have time to enjoy perusing them in between celebrating all those special dads in your life! It’s supposed to be a beautiful Saturday here in Boston and I hope it’s just as nice wherever you might be!
SAKS OFF FIFTH– Shoe & Handbag FLASH SALE! Take an Extra 20% Off with code: 48HOURS (thru 6/15). These gingham Loeffler Randall sandals are so gorgeous and this Prada wallet is on my wishlist. Also be sure to check out these slides by Pure Navy and these by RENVY.
J.CREW– Extra 30% Off Sale Styles using code: GETAWAY (thru 6/18). This silk button-up comes in a variety of colors but I think it would be exceptionally versatile this Spring and Summer in subtle pink. I also plan to pick up another sweatshirt for bonfire beach nights. There are quite a number of dresses and cute pjs on sale but I really love this faux wrap gingham dress and this cotton pajama set in flag print.
SAKS FIFTH AVENUE– The Designer Sale! Up to 70% Off thru 6/22! There are so many incredible selections from designer labels marked down! A few favorites include this white ruffled cotton dress and this white Rebecca Taylor textured shift dress (perfect for brides-to-be).
& OTHER STORIES– Up to 50% Off select styles site wide (thru 6/25). This retailer is new to me but instantly fell in love with a bunch of merchandise when I was alerted of the sale. This midi dress comes in a variety of colors and patterns but I’m eyeing it in orange (which is ironically a color I’m almost never drawn to). I also like these leather braided heeled sandals, this woven straw headband (haven’t seen anything else like it) and this circle straw bag.
LORD & TAYLOR– Take 30% Off almost everything with code: FRIENDS (thru 6/17). This linen button-front dress is the perfect Summer piece! It comes in a few color options but I really love it in Bok Choy (such a fun name). I’ve featured this preppy shift dress in other roundups but wanted to point it out to you again since the price is so good! Also, be sure to check out this gingham A-line dress and this pinstriped dress (such a great day dress for Summer)!
WORLD MARKET– Take 20% Off your full-priced purchase with code: SUMMER20 (thru 6/17). It would be onerous to list all my favorites here but be sure to check out these Adirondack rocking chairs, this beautiful coffee table that also functions as a storage unit, this dish for those Summer pies and these solar LED bulb string lights for your outdoor space!
