Floral Wrap Dress Flattering for All Sizes!



How is it Friday already? My wedding is quickly approaching, we are about two weeks out, so for me, time is flying by.  I have too much to do, to confirm, to finalize for it to be the weekend! Hahah!

The trees are starting to bloom in Winston and I just love seeing these white little flowers appear on all of the tree lined streets. Spring is one of my favorite seasons- you begin wearing cute sun dresses, wedges, pastels, etc and it seems like nature plays along with you! I purchased this floral wrap maxi dress from eBay last week. Did you know that 81% of all merchandise on eBay is new and can be purchased immediately through the "Buy It Now" option? I had no idea! Also, 61% of merchandise ships for FREE! This is a game changer, I literally hate paying for shipping, I just find it to be annoying and unnecessary so when a retailer offers free shipping, I am all in! I was so excited when my dress arrived at my doorstep only three days later! 

I have said it before and I will say it again. I love wrap dresses, wrap tops, wrap skirts. I think they are super figure flattering and really allow you to adjust the piece of clothing to your body.  In case you are interested, you can always type "wrap" in the side search bar on my blog and it'll pull back previous post where I have worn wraps before! Now add a wrap to a beautiful flowing maxi dress paired with your favorite Sam Edelman heels and you know it'll be a winner! There are a lot of curvy/plus size maxi dresses that can be found here! They are one of those items you can begin wearing in the Spring and continue wearing all summer long and through Fall!A lot of you have shared with me that you love following to see what I wear for my body type or ask me for my opinion on how to style something for you! I am always happy to share my thoughts and give you some advice!

I will say the one thing I have carried with me from since I started shopping for myself is that the size doesn't matter, it's how something fits you. I think so many of us are always so alert to the letters or numbers on our tags when really, we should focus on how something fits our bodies. If you are a curvier girl, a bit bigger of a girl, sometimes things just simply do not fit how they were cut to fit. You have to think the patterns and blocks of these garments are for slender sizes, for whatever reason that was always the standard fit.  I think we have to be careful to not get upset about what the tags say but rather shop for clothing that will accentuate our best assets and make us feel good! It has taken me many, many years to really deeply recognize that there is not a certain size that is perfect. Every single one of us has been made differently and we need to celebrate that! So for my girls out there that need a bit more room, two of my favorite retailers offer plus sizing, Forever21 & ASOS and they can be purchased right here on eBay.  You are able to filter (look to the left side bar) on condition of the item, buying option, product category and so much more! It makes shopping for what you have in mind so easy!

You know it's funny, I have sold many items on eBay before and I always found that it was super easy to list an item to be sold, however, I really didn't put much thought to it that it would be just as easy to shop from them! When I have something in mind to purchase, I'm going to check to see if eBay has it first now!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a good weekend!

Thank you to eBay for sponsoring today's post. As always, all opinions are my own.

Spring Must Haves

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 

Hi guys! I can't believe it is Wednesday already! Pat has off on Friday for Easter so I am looking forward to the end of the week where we can spend some quality time together. It's supposed to be beautiful today so I am hoping the weather will stay through the weekend! I think we will take Ruby for a nice long walk in one of our favorite parks in Winston!

It's supposed to hit seventy today and be full sunshine so I thought I would get all of you in the mood for Spring by sharing some of my must have items! Ever since I went to Mexico and was in two piece sets, sundresses and some swimsuits, I have been craving all things Spring! I need some wedges in my daily life and some cute straw bags! Whose with me? Can it be 99 degrees everyday for the next six months?! Please & thank you!

Checkered Skirt + Easy to Recreate Spring Outfit


 Happy Monday!
How freaking cute is this checked gingham skirt from the BP brand from Nordstrom? I love shopping this brand as they offer trendy items at affordable prices! They always have the best comfy tees, like this one here, and cute dresses, my eyes are on this one and this one for my upcoming wedding! I have always been a big fan of skirts because I feel the outfit combinations can be endless! Mix in a black and white checkered skirt and you can wear it over and over again!

Has the weather been improving where you are at? It seems to be going back and forth here in Winston, I just want it to be seventy degrees and sunny, not snow one day and eighty degrees next! Hahah! But with my wedding around the corner, I just keep thinking I'll be in full sunshine soon!

My skirt is only $45 which I feel is a really good price! It's a lightweight cotton skirt, it'll be perfect for the humid days a head!

Thanks for stopping by,
xx, Brittany Ann

Pink Pearl Blouse +Spring Outfit


Happy Monday pretties!
Spring has sprung (or at least so far it seems...) and I am so so happy about this! Bring out the pinks, yellows, all the pastels! I just need a tan and I would be all set to embrace Spring with open arms! Hahah! Pearl embellishments have been super trendy lately. You can see them here on my blouse as well as on my heels. My heels fit true to size, but if you have wider feet, I would size up a half size because that strap across the toes fits pretty tight. Also, these heels come in black here too!

This weekend was GORGEOUS! Pat and I spent most of our time outside, we took Ruby to a park we love in downtown Winston to throw the ball back and forth for a while. I love how much color there is on the buildings in Winston as the sun sets. It is such a pretty view!  Did you get to spend much time outdoors?  I hope you did!

Easy Spring Outfit to Recreate



Tee Shirt Dress (use code 'brittany15' for 15% off + free shipping) // Similar Blush Handbag // Louis Vuitton Scarf similar here // 

Happy Friday friends!
This week was certainly a long one with me! Wedding planning details are consuming all of my time! I am so excited for the wedding, I do just want it all planned and ready to enjoy!
I did a try on haul with Chicory Lane Boutique on my instagram stories a few days ago. You can still check it out as it lives on highlights section. This peplum t-shirt dress was one of  those items I tried on. I can't even express in words how incredibly soft it is. Super, super soft. It also comes in a long sleeve version here and a t-shirt version here. You can get free shipping on your entire order + 15% off of your order with code 'brittany15'. There is this adorable lemon peplum top that has me in L.O.V.E! 

Below is a round up of t-shirt dresses, loafers and little scarves. This outfit that I am wearing was the easiest thing to throw on when Pat and I were staving and didn't want to make anything! I feel like I always have two or three outfits that I can whip out of the closet and throw on. Girl on the go!

Wait for the below to load and then click on any image to shop! Happy Spring!

Selfie Leslie Wrap Dress


Hi beauties! Monday morning it is! Whose ready for the start of a new week? ME!
With the wedding being only one month out, I am beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed with what needs to be finalized! It's all in my head though, I have my to do list and I am making progress on it so I know it's a mental thing! I just keep thinking I am going to become the wife of the most amazing man I know and that is what the focus needs to be :-)

I recently wore this two piece set on my instagram from when I was in Mexico and it's the brand Selfie Leslie. I had ordered the set from Forever21, whom if you haven't checked their stuff out recently, you should! Forever21 is carrying many different brands and I feel the fits and quality has improved from when I shopped there when I was younger! Anyway, the set is the brand Selfie Leslie and so I took a look at their actual website and got this wrap dress. I feel most of their clothing has some kind of sexy element to it. I like that this dress shows a little of my chest, not too much, but I feel there is an element to their pieces that just work in favor of being young and feminine. You can search "Selfie Leslie" on Forever21 like I did here so it brings up the brand's products. If you like my outfit in the instagram link about, the same print comes in a maxi dress here.
I like sharing new finds with all of you so let me know if this was a good share! :-)
Happy Monday! I hope it's a sunny and productive one for you!
xx, Brittany Ann
