Floral Kimono Under $100 in Notting Hill + Exciting Announcement!

Happy Friday!

Ugh, these photos just make my heart yearn to be back in London! How gorgeous are the magnolia trees blooming? It was so nice to be there during that time of year at the end of April. It’s my absolute favorite! 🙂

This floral kimono was a last minute addition to my suitcase that I wasn’t sure I needed. I wore it one day at the rewardStyle conference in Texas but thought it might be too chilly in London still for a thin kimono, but it ended up being great for a midday meet-up with one of my besties, Victoria! I love how it matched all of the Spring blooms around the city perfectly! It’s sold out in a couple of sizes but I have found some other really cute ones at some different price points for y’all to consider. I’d definitely recommend keeping an eye on the one I’m wearing over the next couple of weeks. Sizes come in and out pretty frequently on this site.

And no, these heels were not on my feet for any longer than it took to take these photos. I would not recommend walking around London in these but I did have them with me to wear to dinner so I popped them on for the photos. It’s such a big city that sometimes you need to bring a change of shoes with you to elevate your look for night without having to go back across town to change then go out again. But, I will say, I love these heels and think they are so so cute for summer! They’re pretty comfortable although I wouldn’t wear them for an extended period of time or wear them anywhere you have to walk for awhile in them. They don’t give me blisters or anything but the heel is tall enough to wear your feet out after a bit.

Monthly Favorites Newsletter Announcement!

So, next week is a big week here at Alyson Haley! We are launching our first ever monthly favorite newsletter! In the past, when I’ve shared monthly favorite blog posts, they seem to be such a hit but, since there are so many other blog posts I am working on getting out to you guys every month, they sometimes get pushed off the calendar because something else pops up and takes its place. So, I wanted to make sure it was something I bring to you guys consistently every month and thought a newsletter, exclusive for only All Access Alyson Haley members, would be the best way to do that! I’m putting the finishing touches on our inaugural one, that will go out next Tuesday, today and am so excited to share my favorite purchases from last month, favorite TV show / podcast I’ve been loving, etc. as well as what’s coming up next month, including WHERE I’m going! I’m also getting a little vulnerable and talking about something I struggle with that I’ve never shared before so be sure to subscribe by clicking on the little icon in the top left part of your screen that is three horizontal lines and go down to SUBSCRIBE and click NEWSLETTER. Fill in the entry forms and ta-da! You’re done!

If you are more of a visual person, see how to subscribe HERE.

If you’re looking at this post on mobile, you must be IN a blog post in order to subscribe to a newsletter. So, being that you’re reading this, you’re IN a blog post so you’re good. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the post and stop at the blue box you’ll see located JUST after the comment section ends. Put your info in and opt for All Access to ensure you get the Monthly Favorites Newsletter! 🙂

Already signed up for a newsletter but not sure if you’re All Access? Go into your email and dig up an old newsletter that you’ve received from me. Scroll to the bottom of the email and click on Update Preferences and it should give you an option to change which newsletters you want to receive from me. Unclick all of them except All Access and you’ll receive my daily post alerts, Saturday Roundup [this will not go out the Saturday before the Monthly Favorites newsletter], the weekly Ask Alyson Haley newsletter [on Wednesdays], and the Monthly Favorites Newsletter [out once a month on the first Tuesday of the month]. 🙂

Alright, that’s it for me, lovelies! Be sure to come back tomorrow as there will be a new IG Roundup from the month of May and also don’t forget to enter for your chance to be one of five winners to win a $100 Delta gift card, a Longchamp or Rebecca Minkoff tote and some of my must-have carry-on items in YESTERDAY’s POST! Have a great day! xo.

    Congrats on another new blog accomplishment!
    I love your white Gucci bag – I’m impressed you’ve managed to keep it so white, that must get so difficult. I’ve had bad experiences with jeans and white bags…
