FAVORITE #2: THIS DRESS
I’ve been dress shopping a lot lately because I have a couple of events coming up that really need a sweet little dress. And I gotta say, dress shopping is hard!
I’m going to a charity lunch for The Genesis Women’s Shelter with a friend on Tuesday, and then the first weekend in June I have an outdoor wedding. I wanted to find a dress that worked for both occasions, and I think I found it!
It’s way more than I’ve ever spent on a dress before, but I fell in love…..
and if you’ve tried on over 20 dresses with no luck, you almost don’t even care how much the dress THAT DOES WORK is.
I think it would work with both heels or wedges depending on the occasion.
And I feel like I might be able to throw it on with a denim jacket to dress it down too when wearing wedges.
dress HERE / MK wedges HERE
*I told you guys on Wednesday that even though these wedges look great, they are NOT comfy.
So I took them back yesterday, and I’ve ordered THESE.
(Sadly, my DV wedges that I ADORED broke! DANGIT! I took them back to Nordstrom, but they were out of my size and they couldn’t find a pair in my size anywhere. So, I ended up ordering the criss-cross version. However, when those arrived, they had what looked like water spots on them.
And even if they hadn’t had the spots, I didn’t feel like the cris cross version was as comfy. Boo!
I took those back, and when I did, they were then out of both the single strap version and the cris cross version in my size. It’s like the wedge universe was against me.)
Anyway, the ones I’ve ordered are quite a bit cheaper than the MK ones,
so I’m going to call it a WIN!
I did order 1/2 a size up based on all of the reviews.
BACK TO THE DRESS.
Isn’t it sweet and fun? I love all of the colors and the the unique cut.
AND IT HAS POCKETS.
SO COME ON!!!!
For size reference, I’m wearing a 4 in the dress.
Favorite #3: Easy Spring and Summer Top
blouse HERE (all Lush tops HERE)
For size reference, I’m wearing an x-small in the top.
jeans HERE / $8 chunky studs HERE / necklace HERE (clear sold out, pink still available) / sandal HERE / similar sandal with gold toe HERE / watch HERE
This blouse definitely needs a cami under it. Not because it’s see through, but because the deep V can show the girls if you aren’t being careful. 🙂 It’s loose and easy and just fun.
Click HERE for the $12 BP cami.

Favorite #5: THESE LIVE IN CAPRIS AND THIS PULLOVER
GIRLS. I know these are work-out pants and a pullover, but if I had to choose my VERY Favorites out of all my favorites today, you’re lookin’ at them.
THESE pants and THIS pullover straight up make me happy.
Fair warning: the pants will most probably sell out.
They always do.
Size References: I’m wearing a small in the leggings, a small in the pullover, and the shoes are true to size.

FAVORITE #6: Talking Men’s Swim with Nordstrom
I told you all on Wednesday that I’m in the middle of working on a women’s swimsuit post with Nordstrom (it should go live next Friday)!
They also asked me to talk about men’s swimsuits, and I obliged.
They have a HUGE selection in every length and design imaginable!
I about died when I saw THIS one. WHAT. THE. HECK.
They confuse me, and I’m a little concerned that I will never be able to un-see that image.
Here are some choices that didn’t make my gag reflex kick up:
a. HERE ($42) / b. HERE ($60) and LOTS of color options/ c. HERE ($65) /
d. HERE ($59.50) / e. HERE ($65) / f. HERE ($35)
g. HERE ($89.50) / h. HERE ($69) / i. HERE ($50) /

Thank you Nordstrom for sponsoring the men’s swim portion of this post!
Favorite #7: Women’s Swim PREVIEW
As mentioned a second ago, my Nordstrom women’s swim post is going live next week.
I hadn’t planned on doing one, but I got lots of requests after I did the cover-up post last week, so I thought WHAT THE HECK!
Today you are going to get a sneak peek of me in an actual swimsuit.
I’m actually in an actual swimsuit.
In a picture.
On a public blog.
I’m just owning it.
None of us are perfect. None of us love every single part of our bodies.
But we can all find something to like!
Something to be proud of!
I know many of you (like me) don’t feel comfortable wearing bikinis. (Don’t get me wrong. I don’t see ANYTHING wrong with wearing bikinis, I just don’t like them on me. If you like rocking a bikini, then go on with your bad self!!!!) 🙂
So….my post will be featuring tankinis only.
I like one pieces too, but I couldn’t find any that were flattering this time around.
I did get a couple of e-mails asking about skirted swimsuits (y’all wanted to know if they were too grandma!), so I thought I would try one of those too.
That’s what you are getting a sneak peek of today!
anchors away tankini top HERE / hipster swim skirt HERE /
or high waist navy bikini bottoms HERE
The top does have a strap that you can attach, which I find totally necessary when you have little ones you are taking care of at the pool! And I actually liked the skirt! It’s got some serious coverage, but I think the side ties made it cute and not grandmotherly. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. 😉
For size reference:
I was wearing a small in the top, but I think an x-small would have been better.
I was wearing an x-small in the skirt and it was good.
I’m wearing my cobalt studs found HERE.
