Last night I attended a trunk show at my favorite local shop, Swirl Boutique. Every couple of months they have a special customer appreciation night and when I found out it was going to be an Indah trunk show…I COULD NOT miss it! You guys already know I love Swirl but Indah is one of my favorite brands to shop. I picked up a new dress (coming to the blog soon!) and two more of their Maya bralettes (obsessed)! I’m really into strappy little bras right now (just like the girl above in the 2nd to last pick). They also had a mimosa bar and a gentleman doing fab henna tattoos for the event. After the trunk show, I met up with a couple of my girlfriends for a belated birthday celebration (Happy Birthday Samantha!). It was a perfect way to kick off the holiday weekend. TGIF!

P.S. You can see two of my favorite posts wearing Indah…here and here.

 

Lauren Conrad Floral Maxi

Last week I was invited to attend a Kohl’s bra fitting event. I don’t know about you gals, but I have always wanted to get measured. In the past, I’ve always just brought 76348763465365 bras into a fitting room and hoped that one of them would fit. Apparently…I am not alone. According to Kohl’s, 80% of women are wearing the wrong size bra…and wouldn’t you know it…I was one of them! I have a pretty small rib cage so finding a bra band/cup size to fit me has always been challenging. I was thrilled to find that not only does Kohl’s have a HUGE selection of bras…but they carried my size! I love the comfort of t-shirt bras and this one by Maidenform ended up being my fave. I liked it so much that I came home with two that day and went back for two more the very next day! With prices like that, how could I not?!? And you know me…I couldn’t go into a Kohl’s and not check out the Lauren Conrad new arrivals. As soon as I saw this maxi, I knew it had to be mine. Sadly, I don’t see it online so I don’t have a link for you…but I just came across this one and LOVE it too!

P.S. If you get the chance, I highly recommend attending a bra fitting event and get yourself measured! It’s super quick and easy! Kohl’s also has a great sizing guide to help you find your perfect fit!

Merricks Art Striped Swing Dress for Golden Tote

If you’ve been reading for a while, then you probably know by now that I am a big fan of Golden Tote. Golden Tote is kind of like hiring your own personal shopper to curate a surprise “grab bag” of clothing just for you. After you create a profile, you choose from a $49 bag (2-3 articles of clothing) or the $149 bag (5-7 articles of clothing) and choose one piece or 2 pieces respectively and Golden Tote surprises you with the rest. This month they partnered with Merrick of Merrick’s Art (one of my daily reads) to custom make her signature swing dress as one of the options in either bag. I was thrilled to say the least. These dresses sold out like immediately in my usual size (S) so I ended up buying a size down (XS)  knowing that it would be roomy. Clearly, it was meant to be because this dress fits perfectly! I LOVE that it can be easily dressed up or down. It was THE PERFECT dress to wear to dinner with my almost 4 year old son & hubby this weekend. Comfy and cute!

P.S. This dress is currently back in stock in all sizes! It is also available here in cobalt & paisley print so do yourself a favor and grab one while you can!

Ever since I cut back my blogging schedule to just 3 days a week, I’ve put shopping posts on the back burner. But since I’ve gotten a few requests recently to bring them back, I decided I would start with a Forever 21 roundup. I go through phases with F21 where I will go from checking their new arrivals daily to then skipping a few weeks at a time. I can’t even remember the last time I shopped F21 so it was kind of fun to go through pages (and pages!) of new-to-me arrivals. Three of these items are on their way to me now. Can you guess which ones? =)

P.S. Instead of links, you can now just click on any of the images above to be directed to the item pictured! Enjoy!

I often get asked if I ever wear things on the blog more than once. And the answer is…yes! I’ve already worn this dress without a belt and layered it here. But after seeing it worn with a belt on Pinterest (many moons ago…so something my mom would say), I decided to give the belted look a whirl! Which look is your favorite?
