Friday Finds: Striped Tees, Sandals and Bras...Oh My!


Happy Friday! This week seemed to fly by for me, probably because I've been so busy with design clients, putting finishing touches on our workshop next week in Northern Michigan, AND because it's been the most perfect week weather-wise! Nothing but sun. This California girl is loving it.

Alright, on to some Friday Finds for you! Yesterday on Instagram Stories, I showed you a few new things I got in the mail this week, so I thought I'd link to them + show you more here.

It's no secret that I love stripes, so we'll kick off the post with my new favorite striped tee. Anything with a little extra detail, like the eyelet bottom of this one, always gets me!

Striped eyelet top (50% OFF!) paired with distressed shorts (under $45)
Note: I always size down in LOFT clothes. This is my phone case, in case you're interested!


The top is also really cute with white jeans, which I was surprised by! These are by far the best white jeans EVER. And at an incredible price of under $60. They are pretty stretchy, so I sized down 2 sizes. They also come in distressed, which are cute, too! The jeans are so comfortable and soft, I could sleep in them.

White Denim Jeans / Striped tee / Cut Out Sandals (a similarly cute pair here)
Note: I'm usually a 25-26 and I got size 24 in these jeans after trying my regular sizes on. The 24s were a perfect fit and don't stretch out too much after one wear.

Guys, these shoes are the best. I just got them from my favorite online boutique, The Mason Jar. Seriously the best resource for adorable florals and unique cuts on tops and dresses. Anyways, I got these sandals and I think I'll be living in them. They are so comfy. They're almost sold out, but they also have these which are the same heel height (2.5"), so I'm guessing they'll be just as comfortable!

Next up is another striped tee, but this time it's peplum -- another one of my favorite fits! Look at the adorable exposed gold zipper!

Striped Peplum Top
Note: the top photographs more black and stark white, but it's definitely more of a black stripe on an off-white, not stark white. Also, order 2 sizes down. I'm in an XXS, which is insane to me, but that's how J.Crew works!


I got my jeans from here, but they're sold out, so I found a bunch of others at great prices:



Next is a white top. All these shirts are super easy to wear, t-shirt material. This one almost feels like a polo material. It's really nice! The ruffle detail is so sweet and instantly dresses it up! White shirts are my favorite because they go with anything (except maybe white jeans). I always find a new white shirt to add to my wardrobe every summer and this year, this is it! I also am obsessed with these shorts. As you may know, I actually don't love shorts in general, but these are loose enough and long enough to where I feel comfortable in them. They're a soft chambray/linen material and they're on mega sale!

White tee with ruffle bottom / Chambray Shorts (under $20!)
Note: go down 2 sizes. I'm actually going to return this XS for an XXS.


Okay, friends! Have you heard of Third Love? They are a bra and panty company that make incredible undergarments. I have seen them advertised on Facebook and Instagram before, so on Monday after another friend had posted about loving her new bra, I decided to give it a try. Here's how it works: you take a quiz on their site and they tell you what bra will be the best fit for you. You can choose to try it out by getting it shipped to your house and for the next 30 days, you get to wear it as much as you want and wash it, then you can decide to keep it (and pay for it then) OR send it back if you didn't love it. They donate any bras that are sent back. Cool or what?! 

So I ordered my classic t-shirt bra in nude on Monday and it arrived on Wednesday! I couldn't believe it. So quick! I've been wearing it ever since and will absolutely be keeping it. Here's why: it's soft (I literally forget I'm wearing a bra!), it has coverage in ALL the right places, the straps are really pretty, it has just enough padding, and the best-- you can't see any lines of the bra from under your t-shirt. It's truly amazing! PLUS, they have 1/2 bra sizes, because did you know that almost everyone is in between sizes, which is why so many women struggle with finding the perfect size? (PS. I'm not working with this company ((aka this is not sponsored))...I'm just sharing my real experience with you :))
