Friday Finds: Floral Crush

Hooray for Friday! With all of the beautiful weather we've been having lately, I have been doing some serious crushing on floral prints. I can't help but want everything in floral...clothes, shoes, handbags, you name it! Since I missed out on the retail version of this punk floral dress last year, there was no way I was missing out on it this year especially since it was on sale. And I may or may not have bought this matching top too! Are you loving floral prints as much as I am? I hope you all have a blessed Easter weekend!

White Plum Giveaway!

Hello darlings! I am so excited to bring you a giveaway from one of my favorite online boutiques, White Plum, along with the special discount code BETHANY20 for 20% your order through April 22nd! You may recall me wearing their adorable mint flats (here and here) or their floral tunic (here) which make it easy to see why I love their shop so much. Not only are their items cute and on trend, but they are also affordable! And did I mention that everything I have ordered so far has been true to size? You can't beat the convenience of online shopping, especially when you don't have to second guess what size you will need. 

Today, I decided to pair this garden blouse with white denim and nude accessories for a crisp, springy look. I have already worn this top several times since receiving it and just adore this floral print for spring/summer. Plus, you can have a chance to get your very own spring goodies since I have teamed up with White Plum to giveaway a $75 gift card to their site. To enter the giveaway, simply use the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

Eyelet Peplum

I have a love/hate relationship with peplum. I love practically every peplum top that I see while it's on the hanger, but unfortunately they never seem to look so great when I try them on. And just when I was about to give up, I stumbled across this eyelet peplum top that doesn't look horrible on me! I realize this top is pretty subtle compared to most, but at least it is a start. Anyway, I decided to jazz up this look with a little cobalt and sparkle from Sassy Jones Boutique! The colors and style of this necklace make a fun, bold statement and I received so many compliments on it.

Top: Gap (option) | Denim: Loft | Heels: c/o Kohls | Clutch: c/o Pink Slate Boutique (option) | Necklace: c/o Sassy Jones Boutique | Bracelets: Capwell (option), Loren Hope | Ring: David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew Factory

Finding the Perfect Fit with Kohl's

With spring in the air and summer quickly approaching, I figured now would be a great time to talk about some basic wardrobe essentials. Call me old fashioned, but I have always had a pet peeve about bra straps showing when wearing sleeveless/strapless tops and dresses. And if you’re like me, you probably prefer to have a few versatile bras over having to select a different one for every type of outfit. Plus, I have found that having a properly fitting bra is a necessity in order for any outfit to look its absolute best. As for bra shopping, I personally find it overwhelming to walk into a department store that has hundreds of options to choose from and have no clue where to begin. So to make this daunting task a little easier, I used Kohl's Bra Fitting Guide to find my perfect fit before heading to my nearest store. In store, I selected a handful of bras in my size to try on and ended up with three different styles that are sure to work with any outfits I dream up! Find out which three styles I selected below and see what I wore them with!

1) I selected this body demi (nude color available in store) since it is a versatile everyday kind of bra that can be worn with a t-shirt, sweater, dress...you name it! A few things I love about this bra: its super soft touch, no-show cups, and smoothing wings which prevent lines and lumps on your backside. This bra seriously does it all! 

Top: c/o White Plum | Denim: J.Crew Factory | Heels: c/o Kohls | Bag: Tory Burch | Sunglasses: Ray Ban | Necklace: old (option) | Watch: Kate Spade | Bangles: Kate Spade | Ring: Kate Spade (option) | Earrings: J.Crew Factory


2) I selected this racerback bra since I practically live in sleeveless tops during the spring and summer months! And as I mentioned earlier, I don't like for my bra straps to show and have found that a regular bra doesn't always fit the bill. A few things I love about this bra: the t-back no slide straps, the fact that the front closure doesn't pinch me, the feminine lace, and most importantly that it is comfortable. 

 Top: Gap (option) | Denim: Loft | Heels: c/o Kohls | Clutch: c/o Pink Slate Boutique (option) | Necklace: c/o Sassy Jones Boutique | Bracelets: Capwell (option), Loren Hope | Ring: David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew Factory

Top: c/o Kohls | Denim: Loft | Heels: c/o Kohls | Bag: Tory Burch | Sunglasses: Kate Spade | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelets: Kate Spade, c/o Stella & Dot | Ring: David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew Factory


3) I selected this convertible bra which is a spring and summer necessity in my book. And I will be the first to admit that I normally find strapless bras to be unflattering and uncomfortable, however, I have been pleasantly surprised by this one. A few things I love about this bra: it stays in place better than other strapless bras I have tried, it has nice coverage, and it is actually comfortable. 

Dress: Old Navy | Heels: c/o Kohls | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Necklace: c/o Purple Peridot | Watch: Kate Spade | Bracelets: c/o Cathryn Ann | Ring: David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew Factory
 
Dress: Lauren Conrad c/o Kohls | Heels: DSW (option) | Bag: Kate Spade | Watch: Kate Spade | Bangles: c/o On A Wire | Ring: David Yurman | Earrings: J.Crew Factory


Here are a few more options to consider...

Friday Finds + a $185 Giveaway!

I'm back with another round of splurge vs. save options today (you can check out the last edition here)! Since I enjoy purchasing a new pair of wedge sandals each season, I don't like to spend a lot on them. So with that being said, I have been on the hunt for some on trend, yet affordable options and was pleasantly surprised when I came across the two look for less options below! And with a price tag of only $24 I could afford to get both pair for less than the cost of one splurge option! Would you choose to splurge or save on these items?
