Any chance that I get, I've been wearing this monokini--family bbq's, pool days, and beach trips. It's super cute, and amazingly affordable (it's under $30!). You can see it better in this post.

I've been obsessed with rompers as of late. They're beyond comfortable and so cute for summer!

green tunic with pockets

June 27, 2016








My Outfit Details: DRESS Green Tunic With Pockets (on sale!) // NECKLACE Layered Bib Necklace (on sale!) // EARRINGS Pearl Studs (similar linked, mine are a family heirloom) // BRACELETS Alex & Ani Heart Bracelet & Alex & Ani Initial Bracelet // SHOES Jeffrey Campbell Lace-Up Sandals

You're probably thinking that I'm crazy/repeating to yourself: "Really Jordan, quarter-length sleeves in this heat?!" But trust me on this one. I am the type of person that sweats, and then sweats some more. {TMI? Sorry, not sorry about it.} So during these summer months, when I endorse anything that has longer sleeves then a tank top, you better believe that it is lightweight and totally wearable for these warmer days. In fact, this dress is so comfortable, I think that it could pass as pajamas. 

Also, these lace-up sandals need another well-deserved honorable mention. They are so comfortable and they hold their own among the lace-up trend family. If you're not crazy about the color I am wearing, they also come in a few other options as well. 

I hope that you have a Happy Monday! I'm feeling extra sleepy this morning, so I see some strong coffee in my future today!

the comfiest LBD

June 24, 2016












My Outfit Details: DRESS Embroidered Little Black Dress (on sale!) // SHOES Steven Madden 'Darcie' Sandals in Black // PURSE Black Tote // BRACELETS Red & Gold Kendra Scott 'Elton' Cuff Bracelet & Gold Alex and Ani 'Apple' Bracelet // EARRINGS Pearl Studs (similar linked, mine are a family heirloom) NECKLACES Small Silver Necklace (c/o) // SUNGLASSES Black Cat-Eye Sunnies // 

Yup, another little black dress has been added to my collection. Could you blame me though? This is by far the comfiest LBD in my closet. This one takes the cake, hands down. P.S. It's also  dressy enough that I think I can get away with wearing it for the student-teaching I will be doing this school year. Score! And I know that you guys have heard me rave time and time again about these sandals, but I just keep finding myself being more and more impressed by them! Honestly, I get so many compliments from people whenever I wear them, so I know that I'm not the only one that adores them.

Also, exciting news alert!! Bradford and I putting our deposit in for our wedding reception venue today. It has been quite the process, but I am so thankful that we finally found our stop :)

Have a lovely Friday & a safe weekend!

Happy Wednesday! I was doing some research recently on past items I wore and I realized that a lot of my favorites are on sale. Woot Woot! That gave me the idea to share a post with a bunch of items from past posts that are currently on sale, especially since most of them are majorly discounted. We're talking like 50%-60% off the normal listing price. 

Happy {sale} shopping!! :)

crochet monokini

June 20, 2016





My Outfit Details: SWIMSUIT Crochet Monokini (under $30!) // EARRINGS Kendra Scott 'Elle' Earrings in 'Mirror Rock Crystal' // NECKLACE Small Gold Necklace // SUNGLASSES Cat Eye Sunnies (only $12!)

I searched and searched and searched for a cute one-piece swim suit. Every single one I tried on (before this stellar find) was either extremely tight, not big enough, unflattering, too expensive, etc. Basically, since retailers started releasing their swimsuit designs for this summer, I've been trying on one-pieces.

As you could imagine, I was super excited to finally find one that fit the bill on all of my requirements: it was inexpensive (under $30!), colorful, and beyond flattering! And I'm not the only one that thinks so! In fact, all the reviews online (so far) are giving it a five out of five star rating.

I also wanted to test out it's wearability before I recommended it! Therefore, I wore it to the beach on my fiance's mini-beach vacay in Dana Point this Friday. Not only did it pass the test, but it was given an A+! I did not have to adjust it at all (not even once!!!) while I was learning to paddle board in the open waters. That is quite a victory to achieve!

Below is a photo of me wearing the suit (underneath my cover-up) before we went paddle boarding! I posted it on my Instagram. If you aren't following me yet on Instagram, you can do so at @teacupofstyle.

summertime white pencil skirt

June 17, 2016














My Outfit Style: TANK TOP Comfy $20 Tank // SKIRT Side Button Skirt  (as available in stripes!) // SHOES Gladiator Sandals // NECKLACE Layered Bib Necklace & Small Gold Pull-Chain Necklace // EARRINGS Pearl Studs (similar linked, mine are a family heirloom) // BRACELET Alex & Ani 'Initial' Bracelet

You could probably look up 'summertime' in the dictionary, and find this white pencil skirt as the definition. This skirt screams all things summer: comfortable, white, side-buttons . . . honestly, the list could go on. I definitely dressed the look down by pairing it with a tied comfy tank, but you could make the outfit more work appropriate by pairing the skirt with a super classy blouse as well. 
Also, I'm always down with wearing an uberly adorable layered bib necklace, but this one takes the cake on being one of the cutest bib necklaces I have ever laid my eyes upon. How could it not? It's almost too good to be true.

I hope that you have a lovely weekend. I am down in Dana Point today and Saturday vacationing with my fiance {it's still so cool that I get to call him that!!!!} and his family. I definitely am looking forward to some time spent on the beach :) As always, treat yourself to a coffee, cookie, mani/pedi, etc. You definitely deserve it! I love you guys & thank you for all of your support.

printed boho dress

June 15, 2016












My Outfit Details: DRESS Printed Boho Dress (under $42!) // SHOES Gold Lace-Up Sandals // WATCH Michele Watch // BRACELET Tiffany & Co. Charm Bracelet // EARRINGS Kendra Scott 'Elle' Earrings in 'Slate' // NECKLACE Delicate Silver Necklace

There is something so effortless and easy about a billowy dress and a lovely pair of lace-up sandals. Personally, this is definitely the type of look that I crave when the temperatures are skyrocketing. It's easy. It's comfortable. It's airy. I also love that this printed dress was a local boutique find. BUT, I did some searching and was able to find the exact dress, just in a different color (and with slightly longer sleeves) online. *Insert dancing girl in red dress emoji* Honestly, I'm thinking about ordering the other color as well, since this dress is beyond comfortable. 

Also, I wanted to share with you another recent purchase of mine! My engagement photoshoot dress!!!!!! I was searching, and searching, and searching for a white dress with some lace detailing for literally an eternity. I saw so many cute ones, but sadly most were out of my budget. Evidently, you could sense my excitement and shock when I wandered into a store that I hadn't visited since high school and found this flowy lace beauty for under $70. Who would have thought!

I hope you are enjoying some sunshine this week wherever you may be. I sure do love summer, but I'm not the biggest fan of the 100+ degree weather we get here at home. Hopefully, we will get some sub-90 degree weather soon so that I can adventure outside without completely roasting :)
