We're celebrating the beginning of fall with our Annual Denim & Boot Event!

When we picture our perfect fall day, it almost always involves soft flannels and beautiful plaids. If you haven't tried on one of your favorite CP Shades bodies in this fall's best materials, we think you should! Read on for our top picks:
You asked so we answered – What clothes, accessories, and shoes does Bliss offer that moms of all stages and ages, particularly during pregnancy, can wear? We believe the value of an investment piece lies in its versatility so we’ve chosen six timeless pieces that can be worn before, during & after pregnancy! (Hint: none of these pieces are actually maternity-wear!)

Let us tell you, feels like buttah.

Stay tuned – more Fall photos to come : )
Our Fall photo shoot brought us to Mackworth Island in Falmouth ME. Our model, Sophia, is one of our very own Bliss girls – blonde and beautiful, we couldn't have asked for more. Our photographer, Christina, has been with us for many shoots – you can view her work and our last shoot here. And our set stylist, Liz, made gold leaves that mixed fall and fashion flawlessly. We featured CP Shades tops, Prairie Underground hoodies, CItizens of Humanity denim, Velvet sweaters, Frye Boots, and Nashelle & Kris Nations Jewelry. Enjoy : )

I must admit, I was a little sad to see 2013 end. Not only was it a great year for Bliss (ahem, we launched our website!), but it was also a life-changing year for me and my husband as we welcomed our sweet baby boy in November! Part of me wants to hit the pause button and savor every special (and sleep-deprived) moment, while part of me can’t wait to see what the new year will bring.
A new year means new resolutions – or plans, as I like to call them. Plans to slow down and enjoy all of the firsts that this year will bring being a new mom. Plans to take a family vacation (that will certainly include a beach!). Plans to take more risks with decorating my home. And...
Plans to update my wardrobe. Since I was pregnant the majority of last year, my closet took a bit of a backseat to onesies, rattles and swaddling blankets. So as you can imagine, I’m ready to shop. Here’s what I’ve got my eye on for the new year:
Striped Blazer. A great blazer can take jeans and a t-shirt to a whole new level. It’s such an easy way to look pulled-together and polished – something that will be essential after pulling an all-nighter with my little one. I’m loving this striped blazer by Velvet. It’s a little more unexpected than classic black, but still works as a neutral. Available in navy or black stripes in our stores, it’s a great transition piece that I plan on wearing all year round.
Riding Boot. For a while now, I’ve had a major crush on equestrian-style riding boots. So it’s no surprise it was love at first sight when the Dorado Riding boot by Frye arrived in our stores. The dark green leather and slim buckle straps create a sleek, timeless look. These were my first purchase of the new year – and I couldn’t be more happy with them.
Denim. After 9+ months of swooning over our new denim arrivals, I have quite the wish list compiled. At the top of that list are 7 for All Mankind’s Slim Illusion Skinny in elasticity black and J Brand’s high-rise Rail (slim straight-leg) in starless. I’m hitting the refresh button on my denim basics.
Really, I could go on and on about my plans for updating my wardrobe – but I think that’s a pretty good start. Along with my personal plans, there are a lot of Bliss plans too. 2014 will be our first full year of blissboutiques.com – and without spoiling too much, we have some great things coming your way!
Here's to a blissful & stylish new year,
Everyone loves a good sale this time of year – especially one that includes Frye boots! Starting TOMORROW, all Frye boots will be 10% OFF with select styles marked down even more. The Carson Pull On, Melissa Button Shearling, Shirley Riding Plate & others will be 30% – 50% OFF! We're giving the phrase "starting off on the right foot" a whole new meaning.
Along with major savings on all Frye boots, a large selection of clothing will also be on sale! Super soft sweaters, Prairie Underground favorites, fun dresses (including a stunning sequin dress by Velvet), and a wide variety of tops will be 40% OFF.
Refresh your wardrobe with some lasting essentials from our sale! Come early (open at 10am tomorrow) for the best selection. We hope to see you soon!

With each day that passes in October, I've been gearing up for maternity leave. Yes, I'm having a baby boy – due in just one week! I've never felt more excited (and nervous – who am I kidding!) about this new chapter in my life.
It's funny though... because amongst all the prepping and planning for baby, I find myself getting sentimental about leaving Bliss for a couple months. For a while now, this blog and our website have been my main focus. Plus, I'm really going to miss seeing the lovely ladies of Bliss on a daily basis! Transitioning to the sidelines may be hard at first, but I feel confident that Bliss will be in good hands while I'm away.
Meet Laura. Or maybe you already have – she's been working in our Portland store for about a year now! For the past month I've been training her and I know she's ready & eager for the job ahead.
Nothing gets us in the mood for fall like Frye boots, leather handbags, denim staples and swoon-worthy sweaters. Not to mention, the changing leaves and pumpkin spice lattes that have us more than invested in the new season.

Chelsey has been with the Bliss team just over a year. She worked in our Portland store before venturing down to Portsmouth. We love working with her – she's funny, always smiling and has a great sense of style. We've enjoyed getting to know her and we want you to as well!
How long have you worked at Bliss?
I've been working for Bliss since September 2012. I was an avid Bliss shopper and admirer, so thankfully the girls scooped me up when they heard that I was looking for a part-time job! I was promoted to assistant manager this past summer. I was more than excited to be a part of the Portsmouth team, especially because it has made me closer to my boyfriend and Boston – which I try to visit whenever I get the chance.
Describe your personality in three words.
Kind. Eclectic. Loyal.
What's your favorite thing about being an assistant manager?
Being an assistant manager has given me the opportunity to build closer relationships with all of the wonderful ladies & gents who walk through the Bliss doors. We have the best customers and it makes everyday a pleasure!
On a typical work day, you will find me wearing...
High waisted denim and a Splendid, CP Shades, or Velvet top. During the fall, I feel lost without one of my Chan Luu scarves – they are my go to accessory. The tawny port color is my favorite, although you can't go wrong with all the color options!
It's (finally) boot season. What pair of Frye boots do you wear most often? And what pair is on your wish list?
What's your go-to lunch spot in Portsmouth?
Easy! Ceres bakery – just a short walk from the shop. Sandwiches with homemade bread and avocado, count me in! There is always friendly service and smiling faces.
Fall is one of our favorite seasons here at Bliss -- and you'll quickly see why! Watch our behind the scenes video from our Fall Photo Shoot at Hardy Farm – a restored 18th Century Farmhouse.
Enjoy! (And be sure to shop our fall collections in stores and online!)

I love the possibilities of fall – everything about it channels change. From the most obvious transitions like beach days to school days, to the more subtle changes like the chill at night causing you to reach for that extra blanket. When I was in school, I used to use fall as an excuse to reinvent myself... and my wardrobe. Name a phase and I’ve probably gone through it at one point. Butterfly clips and awful blue eye-shadow to huge flares whose only necessity was to be big enough to cover up my sneakers. Luckily, I’ve since moved out of these phases; while I still love to switch up my look every now and again, I’m far more consistent and I’ve been able to find my style. When it comes to fall, I make sure I’m stocked up in my basics:
Scarves – I didn’t have a security blanket as a child and I think it has finally caught up with me. Once the bathing suits are packed away, there’s rarely a day when I don’t have a scarf around my neck. I have my silk/ cashmere Chan Luu’s (which are – and I’m not kidding – like wearing a cloud around your neck! They’re that soft. I may or may not have a small addiction!) that I wear in constant rotation.
Jeans – Like the rest of the Bliss team, I’m forever a fan of a high-rise. AG’s new body the Middi offers the same slim fit of their Leggings but with a higher rise, perfect for tucking into my boots while still allowing me to eat my way through the holidays!
These are pieces that are not only crucial to moving into cooler weather, but if purchased wisely can move with you seamlessly into spring and summer too. Versatility is key. With the change of seasons and change of wardrobe, there comes another change this year.
After 3 amazing years with the Bliss family, countless laughs and many pairs of boots later, I am embarking on a new endeavor. Like all major decisions, this one was not an easy one to make. My job allows me to work with some of the most wonderful, hard-working, sweet & funny people. I get to help women find pieces that outwardly represent who they are. That alone is my favorite part about my job – helping our customers. When a customer comes out of the dressing room smiling and feeling confident, then I did my job.
I’m a stylist, a confidant, a friend, a wrap-dress wrapping machine and sometimes just the strange blonde girl who says “have a great night” at 11am (hey, it can happen...). Bliss has been a second home to me and it will be so weird to leave. I can’t wait to come back though. I can’t wait to see how far Bliss will go!
So, where am I going? Well, I have the opportunity to move to Brooklyn. It will be strange to trade the tugboats for skyscrapers and what am I going to do without Ceres St Bakery?! Still, Portsmouth will always be home but I truly feel this would be an opportunity I’d regret if I didn’t give it a chance.
I’m sorry for the length of this blog post but for those of you who know me, once I start on a roll, I can’t stop very easily! I just want to say thank you lastly. Thank you to the best boss I’ve ever had. Thank you to the best coworkers and thank you to our sweet customers! My last day at Bliss will be this Thursday so please, stop by before then! I’d love to see you.
And if you’re ever in New York, look me up!
Erin (Portsmouth Store Manager)
