Everyday Affairs: Gap Event Recap & Life Lately

Hello Everyone! Our everyday affairs have been so fun this past week!! (Well…minus lots of hours clocked at the hospital)…the in between times were lovely, though!

So let’s recap our ‘Start Summer Bright’ event we were asked to attend at the Gap! We were so excited that the sweet people at Gap invited us to a special event hosted by Styld.By and Elle.com! They asked us to style our favorite summer picks and have them at our table. We were able to help style customers if they wanted, promote the blog, and enjoy some yummy desserts and bubbly! Our readers were offered 40% off their ENTIRE ORDER by using the code ‘avenue126’ – it was AWESOME! We really just had a ton of fun seeing all the guests that came in, met some awesome new people, and jammed with the DJ for the evening. We even brought home some of our favorite summer picks! (See below for what we bought, and what we picked from their current summer line – which is adorable right now!)

Here’s what we put on our ‘summer picks’ rack for the gap event:

As for what else is going on right now, we’ve both been working a lot, but also getting outside to enjoy the warmth. Kayaking, swimming, gardening, etc. We’ve been loving the sunshine… it’s just so good for your soul, right!?! Melissa is on her way to family vacation for a week at the beach! YAY! Megan has been prepping for her upcoming trip to Kenya! We are so grateful for this season of life and the everyday affairs that come with it!
