Talking Bralette's with Kohls

This post is sponsored by Kohl's.  I received the featured bralete's as compensation...all opinions are 100% my own.

The summertime heat always means wearing less clothing and often times, light flowy fabrics that can be a little tricky to know what type of bra to wear underneath.  I used to shy away from any top or dress that meant I could only wear a strapless bra because let's be honest, strapless bras aren't always the most comfortable to wear and I find myself pulling and tugging at them all day.

Thankfully brallette's have become much more popular to wear, which gives us ladies another chic, more comfortable, option.  Most recently I noticed that I only had 2 bralette's and they were bold colors so I decided to go on the hunt for some new neutral styles that I can wear with more of my summer wardrobe.

I've previously shopped for bras at Kohl's and was so pleased with their broad selection of brands and styles so naturally, I returned to Kohl's to search for bralette's.  Kohl's did not disappoint!

They had such a great selection of brallette's...from Maidenform, to Lily of France, to SO...there were so many options to pick from.  I grabbed several different styles from each of these brands and ended up picking several bralette's from Maidenform.  They fit me the best and I loved the style and simplicity of their bralette's.

I chose a nude, light pink, white and black bralette, all in a size medium.  I wear a 34C in most bras so I found the medium to be the perfect size for me.  What I loved most about the Madienform bralette's is that the cup is lined, which offers additional coverage and support.  Some of the straps were adjustable and others were a racerback style.

I styled two of my bralette's, one with a flowy summer tank that is lower cut in the front and more open in the back.  I love how the black bralette peeks out in all of the right places!  I also styled the pink bralette with a long duster cardigan and denim shorts...I would wear a white tank overtop of the bralette and allow the pink to peek through as well.

Since picking up my new bralette's, I've been wearing them almost daily.  They are so comfortable to wear and I love the support that I get without having to wear a strapless bra with all of my cute summer tops and dresses.

What are your thoughts on bralette's?  Do you wear them often during the summer months as well?

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...have a great day!

At Home with Minted

ART C/O MINTED

This time last year, we were house hunting and we were under contract for a different home.  After many sleepless nights and much negotiation, we decided to back out of the contract and continue our new home search.  This decision ended up being THE BEST decision we could have possibly made.  

Not too long after we were back in the market, the most perfect home was listed and within hours we not only saw the home but we put in an offer and it was accepted, YAY!  Everything worked out just as it was supposed to and we found the right home for our family.  Pretty sure I was reminded every day that patience and faith was so important to maintain in stressful times.

I share all of this because we are approaching almost 1 year since we closed and moved into our new home!  Boy has this past year flown by.  We remember everything as if it were yesterday and we feel so fortunate to have had one AMAZING year together as a family in a home that we love so much...our home!

It has taken us a while to decorate and decide on furniture and other pieces, such as artwork, that we want for our home.  We decided early on that we would take our time and not buy things just to fill space...we would be selective and deliberate with our purchases.

We still have a long way to go but we are making progress and we just love how it is all coming together!  

Family photos, art on the walls, and accessories have helped make our home feel more "homey".  Minted has been my go-to destination for artwork...I love their selection and the variety of prints and frames that they offer.  I'm pretty certain artwork from Minted will adorn many of the walls in our home.

Two of my favorite recent additions are "Dominant Spirit" and "Cactus at Sunset".  I absolutely adore horses (no I don't have one but hope to one day) and I've always wanted a beautiful art print in our home.  "Dominant Spirit" was my favorite from Minted and I've named her Lola! 

I also picked "Cactus at Sunset" as it is a nod to our time living in Phoenix, AZ before we moved to Nashville.  We lived in Phoenix for 5 years and both of our children were born there so it has a special place in our hearts.

There are just so many prints that I love and I cannot wait to pick out more Minted artwork for other rooms in our home!  I'm already deciding on which room I will work on next.  We have a library and I envision and entire wall covered in art so I'm thinking I need to start adding one piece at a time.

If you are looking for artwork for your home, you must check out Minted.  I'm certain you will find pieces that will also be perfect to adorn the walls of your home!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by...hope you have a great day!

Good morning!  We had such a great week at the beach with family and now we are back home and settled into our normal routines.  There's nothing better than sleeping in your own bed!

Many of you who follow along know that I have been sharing bits and pieces of my selects from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale since last Thursday and now that I am home, I was able to try on some of my selects and snap some full body iPhone shots to give you a better idea of what the pieces look like on.

All of my selections this year are versatile, interchangeable, and are great closet staples.  As you can see from these images, each piece can create a different look just by adding or taking away a piece or by switching out your denim, etc.  I also ended up ordering this set of 11 bangles because they are gorgeous and are on sale for only $29!

One of my favorite purchases this year is the floral embroidered faux leather jacket...it is STUNNING and the perfect mix of feminine yet edgy.  At $111, it is worth every penny!  I'm wearing a size small, which is perfect for wearing over thinner fabrics.  To show it layered, I put it over this olive green and black floral button down dress (also another favorite)...I'm wearing a size small in the dress!

I also love these girlfriend jeans...they are super flattering and the distressed detail at the hemline is my favorite.  I was able to size down in these jeans...something to keep in mind!

Also, the yellow top has a split back so you will want to wear a tank or bralette underneath this Fall.  The olive green sweater cardigan also has a lace up detail in the back, which adds such a fun twist to a not so basic cardigan.

I'm wearing a size medium in the faux leather shorts...I will add tights underneath as the weather cools off.  They have a button waist and an elastic waistband in the back...they are meant to fit a bit more "high rise".  I love something other than jeans for Fall and that is why I picked these shorts.

All other pieces I was able to wear my normal size!

Let me know if you have any questions...I'd be happy to answer!  So much has already sold out so if you see something that you love, and you are a Nordstrom card holder, snag it now!  Public access shopping kicks off on Friday, July 21st.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Important Dates & Tips



It's almost time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale...eeeekkkk!  This is one of THE BEST sales of the year and it is a great time to stock up on brand new Fall items at 40-60% off!


This is a very unique sale in that many brand new Fall pieces are marked down significantly...I'm talking 40-60% off for a limited time!  Once the sale is over, those pieces go back up to regular price!  It's hard to believe that we are already thinking about Fall but you will see a shift in all major stores very soon (if you haven't already) and they will be moving Summer out and bringing Fall in.  Nordstrom allows you to get your hands on top trending Fall pieces at a sale price...it's truly unlike any other store.  Now is the time to stock up on sweaters, boots, coats, tops, handbags, watches, accessories, etc.  Stay tuned here on KBStyled for my first impression picks that will be up on the blog on Thursday 7/13!

WHEN DOES THE SALE START?

For Nordstrom card holders, the sale kicks off on Thursday 7/13/17.  As a perk for being a card holder, you will receive early access to the sale and be able to shop all sale items before anyone else (for a full two weeks)!  The sale will open to the public on 7/2/17 and the sale will end on 8/8/17.

If you aren't a Nordstrom card holder, I encourage you to consider signing up for a card now.  You don't have to wait to receive your card in the mail, you can obtain your card information prior to the sale and still shop the sale while you are waiting for your card to arrive.  It is a very simple process and beyond having early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, there are many other perks that come along with being a cardholder such as Nordstrom Notes (basically free money that you earn to shop with(!

If you aren't a card holder and don't plan to become one, that is okay too!  You can start shopping the sale on 7/21.  

Something to consider...many items sell out rather quickly so cardholders will definitely get first dibs on everything!  Just keep that in mind when deciding whether or not you wish to become a card holder.  You can sign up to be a Nordstrom card holder HERE.

Already a card holder...hooray, I'm sure you are ready to shop the sale!

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND...

You don't have to plan to buy a ton (we all don't have limitless shopping budgets and that is totally okay)..go into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with must have items and wish list items.  Get your must haves first!  Many items sale out fast so don't sit on it because you will find that when you go back to purchase those items in your cart, they will be sold out!  I encourage you to shop the sale early...again if you are a card holder...I suggest shopping on Thursday 7/13!  Don't delay!

Because Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns, there is no reason to fight the crowds in the stores...order what you can online and skip the lines.  

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook as I will be posting more information about the sale there as well!  Although we are at the beach, I have a box of my first impression sale picks arriving on Thursday so I will be sharing those via Instastories as well!

I'm look forward to shopping one of THE BEST sales of the year with each of you.  Plan to check by here on KBStyled.com often as I will be updating you with many of my favorite throughout the sale!

Weekend Sale Alert





Photography by Madi Flournoy Henderson


Believe it or not...summer clothes will be moving out soon and fall pieces will be making their way into stores.  Because stores need to make room for new inventory, they have to move the merchandise that is currently on the floor.  Luckily for all of us savvy bargain shoppers this means that some amazing sales are happening and NOW is the time to shop!

I've always considered myself a bargain shopper and I enjoy shopping sales like the one that LOFT is running right now.  Much of their summer merchandise is on sale PLUS an additional 50% off the already marked down sale price.  #SCORE

I'm talking some of THE CUTEST pieces are ringing up for under $20.  If you love LOFT as much as I do, you must take a moment to shop their sale pieces...I promise you won't be disappointed.  The outfit I'm wearing in today's post is of course...on sale!  There are limited sizes in both the top and the shorts but I've also pulled some of my other favorite tops and shorts for you to browse.  Take a peek at some of my top picks below.

If you decided to shop the LOFT sale, I'd love to hear what you ended up buying.  I've personally filled my cart with cute summer tops, shorts, and dresses.

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday...happy shopping!  As always, thanks so much for stopping by!
