How cute is this bell sleeved top I found at Nordstrom. It makes such a statement that I only had to pair it with some skinny black jeans and booties for this look. If you are on a hunt for new black skinnies, look no further. I found this pair that is so light weight and stretchy for everyday wear. It also has two knee slits for the cutest look.

I always alway shop at Nordstrom and wanted to explain why. Nordstrom has a great FREE shipping and return policy. Since I am a huge online shopper (I hate leaving my house) haha Nordstrom is perfect for my finds! I also am able to purchase two different sizes and easily put it back in the box and it comes with a label to return it. You all should try it!

Thanks for stopping by lovelies. Today we are heading back to Houston. I got tickets to the Bachelor Live here in LA but sadly I couldn’t find flights home after the show! So I will have to skip out sadly! What a great chance that I am sad to miss. Ok lovelies, see you in Houston!

How can you go wrong with pairing white denim on chambray. This is probably one of my favorite combos to date! It is so fun and summery but the long sleeve chambray gives it such a fun spring time look. I see this white button up skirt on repeat a lot this summer. I wanted to link this Topshop skirt that is pretty similar and on sale too. I have yet to snag myself an a line jean denim skirt but this one is next on the list and also on sale. I just added some lipstick and some flats and here is your spring time outfit.

Happy FriYAY! I am writing this from Vegas while Hubby is waiting for me downstairs! I had to get in my favorite outfit. I really do want to thank you all for stopping by. We are leaving to LAX today to spend the weekend there. Follow along on Instagram: www.instagram.com/dressupbuttercup or Snapchat: dederaad for a#raadstravel photos!

Ruffle Hem Sweater: Edit (similar but 70% off) | Jeans: Sarah | Shoes: Finorah | Glasses: Karen Walker

Sometimes pairing basic colors makes sense. Color blocking is my favorite since it takes little effort but makes a look complete. Here I included white, black, and some browns in the shoes. How simple but all comes together so well. I found some adorable hem ruffle options here, here, here, and here (70% off). Ruffles at the hem make such a basic top look more chic. This exact ruffle top is sold out but the little girl version of it is still available here for a special little in your life. These white jeans are also the comfiest, stretchiest jeans you will find and super affordable ($55).

Thanks for stopping by! Today we are off to our first adventure, Las Vegas, for the 19127898712 time. This place always feels like home returning. Can’t wait to hang out on the strip and eat all yummy foods. Happy  Thursday!

Linen Dress: ASTR | Flats: Lucky (Sale) | Purse: Matt & Nat (similar) | Earrings: Kendra Scott | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelet: Alex & Ani | Lipstick: Nars

How adorable is this linen dress? It reminds me of the perfect backyard bbq dress that is oh so light and breathable for those hot summer days. Thankfully yesterday the weather was absolutely beautiful so I got to bring this bad boy out to share to the world. Don’t you all get so excited when you get a new outfit and you can’t wait to wear it. That is exactly how this dress made me feel. I love the layering detail at the bottom of this dress that excites the cut instead of the boring straight lined dresses. The sleeves on the dress give such personality and the slit in the back (eek can’t believe I forgot a picture of that) is just too darn cute. I will be honest and let you all know that the front tie knot that is pictured above is not how the dress was originally intended to be worn. Haha I so did tie it in the front instead of the back but oh well. That is the best thing about style and clothing, since it is on your body, you do you boo.

Gah, looking at these photos gets me so giddy about the summer. Did I mention I can’t wait? First comes Spring which I can manage until Summer. Thanks for stopping by darlings!
