Today's inspiration photo gave me the idea to pair an old polka dot dress with a mustard cardigan. When that didn't go so well (the colors were not vibing), I pulled out these shorts instead, and added the pineapple t-shirt to tie it all together. My pineapple top is from last year but tons came up in my search - I narrowed it down to 4 inexpensive options in my similar links below!
Top: H&M, $10 (similar, similar, similar, similar)
Shorts: Old Navy, $20 (similar, similar, similar)
Cardigan: H&M, $18 (similar, similar, similar)
Shoes: Nine West/DSW, $17 (similar, similar)
Purse: Karen Millen, gift (similar, similar, similar)
Earrings: My Stella & Dot, $19
Approx. dates: Cardigan is 4 years ago. Shorts and purse are 2 years ago. Top and shoes are 1 year ago.
Also - I've had "bra shopping" on my to-do list for close to a year. So when Kohl's asked if I would check out their bra department with a gift card, I said yes. Partly because it's my favorite place when I do shop for bras (can't beat their prices) but also because I took it as a sign from the universe that my current bras were really in that bad of shape. Here are my top 5 bra finds:
1. Best Bandeau Solution
Bandeau worn over bra: similar from Kohl's, $22
This pineapple top is a swim cover up, or maybe the arm holes are just really that big. Either way, I can't wear a regular bra under it, and I hate wearing camis in the Florida heat - so this type of bandeau is perfect for covering a strapless bra. I'd keep the cardigan on if possible, but I feel better knowing I'm covered just in case!
2. Best Seamless Solution
Seamless bra: c/o Kohls, $12
On the left you see my old bra which created horrible lines in many of my shirts! On the right is the bra I found during my shopping trip. It looks a lot like a sports bra, but way more comfortable, slightly padded and doesn't smush the ladies. Plus, if your strap accidentally shows, it looks more like you're wearing a cami than a bra.
3. Best Everyday Bra
Wonderbra: c/o Kohl's, $24
This bra in nude is now my daily go-to!
4. Best Racerback Solution
Racerback bra: c/o Kohl's, $15
My friends started wearing these cute bralettes that have lacy backs last summer. I was slow to hop on this trend, but the neon color of this one enticed me and I loved the fit once I had it on. I'm still getting used to the idea of showing any part of a bra, but this one was made to stand out!
5. Best Inexpensive Bra
SO Push Up: c/o Kohl's, $15
Another great everyday bra, this one is no-frills in the nude color and a great price. What are your favorite bra stores, brands, and/or fit tips?
