30% Off at Sarah Flint

Popping in to share Sarah Flint’s semi-annual sale, where many styles–including some of their Perfect Pumps!–are 30% off right now. Some styles are selling out quickly but among my top picks, there are still several sizes left in this beautiful neutral pump (I love the 85 height) as well as this one, and I’m low key obsessed with these if you’re looking to make a statement–the black and red are both marked down! The signature Natalie is marked down in a few colors (they come out to under $200!), and the brand recently sent me these booties and I was hooked from day one…they are insanely comfortable and have the same arch support as their notoriously comfortable pumps.

Size wise, I’m normally an 8, sometimes an 8.5, and wear a 38.5 in the Perfect Pumps. I’m a 38 in the booties–they stretch about a quarter of an inch with wear so if you’re between sizes, you may want to size down.

I know Sarah Flint shoes are an investment but if you’re looking to elevate parts of your shoe wardrobe, I can’t recommend the brand more highly. Don’t forget that if you’re a first time customer, you can take $50 off your first purchase (sale included!). Drop me a note at monica@monicadutia.com, leave a comment on this post, or message me on Instagram if you have any questions about size or fit! I also have a Highlight on my IG Stories where I break down why I love the Perfect Pump so much–they’re amazing if you have flat feet like I do!

Wedding Wednesday: Gathering Inspiration

I’m back with my second Wedding Wednesday post! We honestly haven’t done too much since the first post, but we do also now have signed contracts with the venues (our ceremony + rehearsal are technically different!) which feels like a great step. I’m going to hold off talking about the specific location till after the wedding but it’s going to be in upstate New York, which is where we went to college (go ‘Gate!) and met our sophomore year. That part of the country holds such a special place in our heart and while we considered other locations in The Berkshires and Maine, we ultimately settled on what we knew was the most “us.”

Next on our to-do list is to put together some inspiration to share with our planner. I hadn’t really thought about a specific “vibe” for my future wedding and the sparse Pinterest board I did have hadn’t been pinned to in years. The last time it saw any new additions was probably in 2015 because everything on there prominently featured over the top bows and body-hugging lace which doesn’t align with my stylistic preferences today! J and I are both typically on similar pages when it comes to aesthetics–I think I wore him down with my classic decorative style vs. his previously modern take on things…heh–but I was surprised neither of us had a certain vision beyond just a few general preferences in the first couple months after getting engaged.

The Best Things I Bought in 2019

In the spirit of wrapping up 2019, I wanted to highlight my best purchases over the past year. Most are clothing-related but some aren’t, and all are things I’m really glad I purchased. As I mentioned last week, I was much more intentional about my shopping last year and plan to carry that through 2020–but plan to further cut down on what I actually purchase!

Lake Pajamas //

I got my first pair of Lake Pajamas in their summer sale (one of two promotions they have each year!) and was immediately hooked. I got a pima cotton shorts set and the quality is unbeatable…I run really warm and regularly wake up overheated, but that’s literally only happened two times when I’ve been wearing my Lake PJs. I snagged another pair in their Black Friday sale and J’s parents gifted me a set last month. It’s been so liberating tossing some of my 5+ year old boxers and sorority tees in favor of more “adult” PJs!

Hudson ‘Nico’ Jeans //

I got these jeans nearly a year ago, right in the beginning of 2019, thanks to a gift card to South Moon Under that I’d been sitting on for years. I literally walked into the store looking for a basic blue skinny jean and came out with this pair. Normally I pore over reviews for something like designer jeans, but went in blind and was not led astray! I wear them more than any other pair of pants in my closet (yay for working in a casual office) and the only downside is they’re a bit long so I end often up cuffing them. I may eventually get them hemmed but I continually each for them thanks to the perfect year-round wash and due to the fact that they don’t sag at all, even after several wears.
