Flashback Fashion Fridays Link Up #6 + Everlane Sleeveless Silk

Everlane Silk Top, White Shorts, Madewell Bag, Black and White Outfit
Everlane Silk Top, White Shorts, Stella and Dot Jewelry, Black and White Outfit
Stella and Dot Gold Ring, Everlane Silk Shirt
Everlane Sleeveless Silk Top, White Shorts
Everlane Silk Shirt, Stella and Dot RIng
Everlane Silk Blouse, White Shorts, Black and White Outfit
Stella and Dot Ring, Gold Ring, Madewell Bag
Everlane Silk Top, White Shorts, Black and White Outfit

I've been really drawn to minimalist, black and white looks lately. It just looks and feels effortlessly chic. I thought a simple black and white look would be perfect for showing off this Everlane silk top. My Everlane collection is definitely growing fast and that's ok with me! I also bought this sleeveless silk dress. Both of these items didn't disappoint!

In other news, I had minor surgery on Wednesday to remove a lump I found in one breast. I wanted to mention it because I think it's important to remind everyone to do their monthly breast exam. It's easy to forget - especially in your 20's when you feel like you're too young to get breast cancer. I guess I'm not super young anymore - I just turned 30 - but it was still kind of shocking to feel a lump. I followed up with an ultrasound and biopsy. Thankfully, it wasn't cancer but the doctor decided to take it out anyway as it might turn cancerous if it grows. Everything went well with the surgery and I'm feeling fine now!

Welcome to another round of Flashback Fashion Fridays! Here's my outfit from this time last year. Look - it's that skirt again! This skirt made an appearance in another Flashback Fashion Friday post. At least I know I got a lot of use out of it!

Sometimes all you need is a cute pair of footwear to take your look to the next level! I was recently introduced to fibi & clo footwear by Sherina - who is one of my sponsors. She generously sent me these embellished sandals to style. I was really impressed with how comfortable the footbed is. The soles are thin but cushioned which feels a lot better than most of my other sandals! The blue stones and crystal gems are also really stunning. These are a pair of sandals that can be worn casually with denim shorts or with a dress for a fancier look!

Summer Midi Dress

Loft Midi Dress, Lace Up Heels, Gorjana Necklace
Loft Midi Dress, Gorjana Necklace, Rocksbox
Loft Midi Dress, Lace Up Heels, Rocksbox, Gorjana
Loft Midi Dress, Rocksbox, Rose Gold Ring
Loft Midi Dress, Lace Up Heels, Rocksbox
Loft Midi Dress, Summer Dress, Wedding Guest Dress

I know I've already done an outfit post with this dress but I feel like the pictures didn't show off this dress like it deserves. I'm also kind of a perfectionist and I really wanted the pictures to be perfect! The last time I wore this dress I added a white moto jacket and black sandals for a more casual look. This time I kept it simple and just added lace up heels for a date night look. I love that this dress can be dressed up or down. It's super comfortable and has a drawstring waist which is always nice. AND IT'S 50% OFF RIGHT NOW! 

I know you're probably all curious about what type of bra I'm wearing - right? ;-) I used to stay away from halter tops/dresses or strapless dresses because I never knew what kind of bra to wear. Obviously this dress would not look good with a regular bra. But I hate wearing strapless bras - they either don't stay up or they are so tight they flatten everything out and make unflattering line. But last year I discovered sticky cups! I know they sound scary but they actually work really well. I wear a 32D bra size and the sticky cups are a C cup so they don't just work on people with really small boobs. They don't offer a lot of support so I'm not sure how they work on larger chests but they keep everything together for me! I've worn them a lot and they haven't lost their stickiness yet. You can also wash them! These sticky cups were seriously a life changer for me so I had to share! Haha...

Flashback Fashion Fridays Link Up #5 + Shopping with Brandzaffair

Brandzaffair, Pleione Floral Tee, Mirrored Sunnies, White Jeans
Pleione Floral Top, Brandzaffair, White Jeans, Mirrored Sunnies
Pleione Floral Tee, Brandzaffair, White Jeans
Brandzaffair, Pleione Floral Tee, White Denim Jeans, Loft Sunnies
Rocksbox Necklace, Pleione Floral Tee, Loft Mirrored Sunnies, White Jeans
Pleione Floral Top, Brandzaffair, White Jeans
Rocksbox Necklace, Pleione Floral Tee, Mirrored Sunnies

With so many online sites to browse it can be hard to keep track of all the sales and deals at each individual retailer. That's where Brandzaffair comes in! Brandzaffair is a site where you can shop your favorite stores and stay up to date on all the latest sales, promotions, and coupons. Sites linked up to Brandzaffair include Loft, J.Crew, Nordstrom, Old Navy, Target, Forever 21, Macy's and many, many more! 

I decided to check out the Nordstrom section on Brandzaffair and found a link to 'Women's styles under $100'.  I've always wanted to shop at Nordstrom but sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the items! This helped narrow it down to items that I can afford. I was able to find this pretty floral top from Pleione for $39. It also comes in a bunch of different prints and colors and it's on sale for $30 if you buy 2! I couldn't be happier with my selection. The print is AMAZING. I had one lady compliment me on it twice! Haha... I also love the shape. It has a pleated back and the shirttail hem covers my bum which is kind of nice. I seriously want to get this shirt in ALL the colors.

Now onto Flashback Fashion Fridays! This photo is from this time last year. I still have all of these pieces and this blue wrap midi skirt is still one of my favorites! I just wish I had more opportunities to dress up and wear heels. Someone take me out to a fancy brunch asap!
