So you can say my wardrobe color this summer has had lots of color and that is something that I absolutely LOVE! Color continuously puts a smile on my face and I wanted to share what big of a difference an outfit makes by adding some colored accessories! The first photo shows just the outfit, with white earrings, to show the contrast of how the look is taken to the next level with colored earrings! Doesn’t the pop of color make a world of a difference between the outfit?! All the earrings I am wearing are from The Styled Collection which has an AMAZING selection of summer jewelry. I have been wearing their bracelets for a while and could not pass up their earring selection since everything is so affordable/adorable.

You will most likely see me wearing these earrings all summer long so having a post with all of my favorite selections is very helpful! I also will be sharing via IG stories today so you can get a live time review!  My absolute favorite is Morrocan Tassels, especially in turquoise! Also, these Casablanca hoops are SO unique and for sure a show stopper! I am just surprised that all these earrings are so affordable (around $30)! Also, each style comes in multiple colors so there are lots to choose from!

I also have had an overload of questions in regards to my bracelet stack! I have been wearing Styled Collection bracelets for years now and I just got this one and this one to add to my stack! My absolute fav is the link bracelet since it breaks up the look of all excessive amount of cuffs I have on! I will include everything I have from them in the scroll bar below!

Happy almost weekend babes! Thanks for stopping by!

Nordstrom Sale 2018 Prep

Dress Up Buttercup Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Well well well, I feel like I just blinked and the Nordstrom Sale is already upon us! This has to be hands down one of my favorite times of the year being a blogger. I absolutely LOVE this time to be able to share items that are BRAND NEW and discounted for only a limited time. After the sale, the items go back to original price! If you are not too sure what the hype is all about for this sale, I will keep it short and sweet, and break down everything you need to know below!

What?

  • Every year Nordstrom has a HUGE sale (known as NSALE) that goes on for a couple of weeks.

When? (important dates)

  • July 11 – level 4 card holders (that’s me!) gets to shop the sale in the store one day early. Which means, once the clock strikes midnight for card holders, I will be sharing everything I got && more!
  • July 12 – known as the “Early Access Sale”. All Nordstrom cardholders are able to shop the sale before it opens to the public. I have seen it multiple years in a row and cardholders definitely get the best picks! So all you have to do is apply to be a Nordstrom card holder here if you don’t have one!
  • July 20 – The sale is finally open to the public! Everyone and anyone can shop the sale!
  • August 5 – Last day of the sale && all prices increase after the day is over!

Why?

  • So, why shop the sale? First, I mentioned the sale is unlike any other because these are newly released items. Typically a sale means they are wanting to get rid of it but these are all new releases!
  • Get ahead of the game for your fall wardrobe! This is the perfect time to shop for fall essentials since the majority of the items released are new fall arrivals. This is the time when I purchase my staples like jeans, booties, etc.
  • They don’t only release fall wardrobe! They also release some of my favorite work out gear that I wore all year long during this sale. The other half of the sale includes work out gear, and summer looks that you can wear now!
  • Because who wants to pay full price after the sale ends?

Tips?

  • First things first, be sure to check out this page here for CONSTANT nsale updates! I get acess on July 11th so I will be the first to shop the sale and be ready to share all nsale items with you the 2:00am on the 12th when the sale goes live! I also have lots or brands sending me items before hand that I can choose to share if I like it and it is apart of the sale!
  • I will be blogging, insta storying, posting on IG, etc of all my favorite finds. This isn’t my first rodeo so I know exactly what will sell out the fastest and I will have LOTS of clothes pre-hand already sent to me so I can be the first to post before it sells out! The best items tend to sell out fast so I hope to be as helpful and resourceful to you all as possible!
  • Getting a Nordstrom Card to shop the sale early is KEY. The best tend to sell out during early access so it helps to have a card!
  • Once you get a card, be sure to use your triple point days on the days where you are going to shop until you drop!
  • Make a list of what you actually need. Do you need a refresher on jeans? New work out shoes? leggings? tees? cardigans?
  • Everything is free shipping and free returns. What I love THE MOST about Nordstrom. So if you are unsure, just order it anyways and it will never hurt to send it back.
  • Again, be sure to check back here! Lots of helpful posts will be released and I will be sure to be updating yall constantly on IG stories as well! Below you can see that I added a Half Yearly Sale tab that I will be updating all the time too! Check it out here.

Bright Pink Dress

Dress: Topshop | Earrings:Baublebar(SIMILIAR) | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Purse: Gucci 

I shared this dress a while back on IG when I announced I will be posting exclusive content to the LTK app every day at 3 pm! I realized I never posted it on ze blog so here it is! If you didn’t catch that announcement, I have it saved under my highlight real on IG “New Idea”! Basically every day (Monday – Friday mainly) I will continue to post on my IG at 8-9 cst every evening and in addition, post in the Like to Know it app at 3pm! Occasionally that 3pm will be posted on my actual IG as well but that will probably happen 1-2 times a week. Just an important note, you don’t need the LTK app to shop these exclusive looks! You can always go to www.dressupbuttercup.com/instagram or the “Instagram” tab on the blog above, and all the exclusive content will be posted there! I am doing this for so many reasons!

  1. Things sell out so fast! I love that I can post it casually on the app without having it to be styled and shot for an IG post or the blog. Sometimes by the time all the steps come into play for an IG post, its already sold out!
  2. I get so many clothes in! I love sharing outfits and instead of only sharing 1 outfit a day, it allows me to share 2!
  3. You get first dibs (exclusive content)! It’s always fun to share some never before seen outfits on a separate platform! I also like uploading these outfits in real time so I probably will be wearing a dress on stories for brunch and it allows me to share then and there the photo if I don’t post it that evening!

There are so many other reasons but I don’t want to bore you lol! Let me know your opinion in the comments below and hope you enjoy this idea as much as I do! I will be trying it for a while and we can see how it goes together 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Red White & Blue with Nasty Gal

Nasty Gal // Skirt (similar) | Tank |

I’m back with another ADORABLE fourth of July inspired look from Nasty Gal! I find myself constantly on their website for trendy seasonal outfits. Plus, it always helps that they are constantly having sales which makes everything so affordable! Since Fourth of July is around the corner, hence why I have been on overboard with red white and blue this week, I wanted to share this look! I legit have been counting down the seconds that this little wrap red skirt would come in the mail (only a few sizes left so similar here). It is SO darling and can be dressed up or down. I just dressed it up with a little white tank to let the skirt do the talking. Nasty Gal also has an amazing selection of white tanks and bodysuits. If you look in my closet, you will find an abundance amount of white tanks, and the majority of my favorites are from Nasty Gal that I believe you can never have too many! I also got this NASA tee that I will put on and show you all via stories today because it is adorable! Especially living in Houston, owning a NASA tee sounds appropriate lol! I also will be sure to link all my favorite white basics from there below.

Happy Friday babes! I am headed home this evening to throw my best friend a bridal shower tomorrow! I am so EXCITED. I have been working on it for months and I can’t wait for it to come all together. I feel like I am planning a mini wedding lol!
