I have had my eye on some lace up shoes for who knows how long now. I popped into DSW the other day and was so surprised by their selection of sandals and how much I have been missing out on! Obviously for some reason, March has been the highlight of shoes for the history of Dress Up Buttercup and I don’t know what has gotten into me! I never was really into #tuesdayshoesday until recently ha! As soon as I took them home, I knew exactly what to pair them with!

This gingham dress that is just so very darling. I was suppose to wear it to a baby shower this weekend and would have been perfect but I didnt wear it for 1 reasons – It is way short. I ordered a small and since I was helping host the shower, I knew this dress wouldn’t be practical. If I were to raise my arms, you would be able to see my shorts. Other than that, it is such a unique dress and I LOVE the quality and concept. I would recommend just going up a size and you probably will be fine!

How did everyones weekend go? Lately, the time has been flashing before my eyes. I still have so many goals to accomplish by the end of March that I should get to them!

I shared my Easter dress with you all last week on IG stories and I LOVED how excited you all were about it, just as I was! This baby blue has been my absolute color crush and I thought it would be perfect for spring. Typically my Easter dresses are full of patterns and prints but I am so excited for a plain pretty blue color this year. I think this dress has enough character in itself with its pleats (that makes me want to twirl all day long), criss cross open back, and a slight metallic shimmer. I think Easter is the best opportunity to introduce this darling to all my family and church friends! Oh and these blue shoes are the perfect touch to create a monochrome the look!

For the second look, I obviously had my mind on pleats and didn’t realize it until it all came in the mail. I would definitely size down twice in the skirt! I usually am a small and even the xsmall was a little loose! This top is a silky goodness and I just love the grey color on it. Both together are my favorite!

The best part is I found both looks at Kohl’s and they are apart of the LC Lauren Conrad new Dress Up Shop line. Who else grew up watching Lauren on TV? I feel like I personally know her and am so proud when I wear her line – in reality, she has no idea who I am! Lol! Anyways, head to your nearest Kohl’s to find this dress and this skirt or you can find them all online!

Happy Friday darlings.

First, I kinda am mortified that in these pictures, my duvet cover is not on! Forgive me, I didn’t realize how many moving parts go into moving and that one slipped! We obviously are on a hunt for a bed set as well so if you have any recommendations you have been eyeing, let a girl know!

I wanted to share the new LIKEtoKNOW.it tool to easily shop all outfits when on Dress Up Buttercup Instagram, Instagram Stories, or Snapchat. This tool came out a couple weeks ago but I wanted to test it out and really see what it was about before explaining it and cover all questions. I am going to break it down in the simplest way possible.

  1. Download the LIKEtoKNOW.it app in your app store.
  2. Head to Instagram and either screenshot or “like” a photo that you want outfit details
  3. Open the app and once you click on the photo it will list all the outfit details! Click on the bag, shoes, etc that you are interested in and it will take you directly where you can shop it!

Few notes: Instagram will always be stoppable via screenshot or like. For snapchat & IG stories I will always note on the image before or the image itself that it is stoppable and I set it up. It also does not work on Facebook but I always am sure to leave direct links on my Facebook posts so that makes it easy to click and shop.

I will include my screen shots below on how to you use it. It is such a genius tool and I am so excited for it! All your screenshots or likes will be in a folder in the app so you can head to the app at any time. It’s also a great place to go to for inspiration when you are searching in your closet of what to wear! It just makes it way easier to shop and I love it. Let me know if you have any questions or problems with it and I would be happy to help! This doesnt mean you can’t message me anymore, I also am always here for questions about sizing, fit, or just a direct link in general!

I want to first apologize for how late my blog posts have been. Y’all, the struggle bus is REAL! I am trying to hop back on the horse of having my post done the night before, but I have been realizing lately that I keep stretching myself too thin. I overcommit and invest way to much when I need to be focusing on normal things like going to bed a decent time, not stressing over content, and not forgetting to eat. I also need to take time and go gym shopping now, that we have moved, and to get my myself healthy again. I keep dropping the ball and need to give up the reigns. Ok enough of me rambling, I know we ALL are busy and ALL are going a million miles per hour.

First, these shoes just make me happy, elongate my legs, and are comfy so I was drawn to share this look today because of that! This top is one of my spring favs but ONLY when I am tan lol! It is such a  pretty mint green, a little see through, so tans make everything better. Also, longer shorts have been catching my eye lately. I am not about the booty shorts but I also don’t want mom shorts down to my knee cap. I always have the hardest time with good jean shorts so I promise to go on a hunt and do some research and come back with a post on my favorite finds for the season!

Anyways, happy hump day! I am late to pick up a dear friend and go to the old house to get all my silverware, cups, etc. The boring stuff that we have managed a month without!
