Happy Monday!

If you follow me on Instagram then you saw where I was raving about this dress from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s hands down my fav pick so far and I want it in every color. I bought it last week and have already worn it three times haha! If you haven’t already, go check out my blog post before this one. I shared everything I tried on at Nordstrom the other day. My wedges are major dupes for the Marc Fisher ones and only $32.

Dressing Room Diaries

top picks:

(L to R): 1// 2 // 3 // 4 // 5

Body Con Dress (wearing size small)

This is my fav purchase from the sale so far! As soon as I put it on, I fell in love. It’s so comfy and also comes in 2 other colors! Love that I’ll be able to wear it with a cardi for fall and after the baby. It’s the perfect length as well!

Raw Hem Pocket Tee (wearing a medium)

This will be an item that sells out so quick! It’s under $20 and comes in several colors. I got it in two. It will go great by itself or paired with a cardi for fall. 

Back Zip Pullover (wearing a medium)

I’m obsessed with the back detail, so cute! This is very comfy and the material is so soft. It comes in a couple of other colors as well and is under $50!

Comfy Tee (wearing a medium)

I promise this will be the softest tee you ever own. I wanted to grab it in every color! It’s under $20.

Lace Dress (wearing a small)

The detail of this dress is absolutely gorgeous! It will be perfect for summer wedding or a baby shower if you are having a little girl! I didn’t wanna take it off.

Plaid Shirt (wearing a medium) // white V-neck (wearing a medium)

If I wasn’t preggo then I would have grabbed a small in this instead of a medium. Seriously will live in this during the fall season! Comes in several colors as well.

Chunky Sweater (wearing a large)

I forgot to save this photo on my phone so I had to use one from my insta story! I grabbed this two sizes up from what I’d regularly wearing to make it cover my bump lol. This is super soft and I love the color.

Front Tie Sweater (wearing a small)

Distressed Sweater (wearing a small)

Sweater Tank (wearing a Large for the bump)

How fun is this back detail!? I’m such a fan of sweater tanks. The front is plain and material is so so soft!

Bell Sleeve Sweater (wearing a L for the bump)

Long Sleeve Pocket Tee (wearing a medium)

This is another item that will sell out very quick! I got this color but wanted them all. 

Ribbed Cardigan (wearing an extra small)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s almost time for the best sale of the year, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Above I’ve shared the dates for early access and public access. For early access, you do need to be a Nordstrom cardholder and I definitely think this is worth having! You get to shop the sale before soo many people and trust me, things sell out so so fast. They do restock some things so you’ll still have plenty of pick from on the 21st when the sale is open to everyone.

So what is so special about the sale? There are so many great fall markdown from designer to non. BP is one of my fav brands from Nordstrom and they have great basics for fall. Staples from the sale are boots, denim, and jackets. In my experience with shopping at Nordstrom, a lot of things run bigger so don’t be afraid to size down or up if you like oversized stuff.

I plan on hitting the sale in store on July 13th so follow along on Instagram! I’m going to do a little dressing room diaries series on my insta stories. Instagram: @simplybethany.

Pool Day with Francesca’s

*Thank you Francescas for sponsoring this post.

bikini top // bikini bottoms // cover up // shoes // earrings // sunnies

Hope you all had a great 4th yesterday! Unfortunately, it rained all day in KY so I spent most of the day inside, online shopping in my pjs. In honor of sunny & warm weather, I’m sharing this adorable ruffle bikini from Francescas with you! FYI- the bottoms are on sale for under $10, such a good deal! This tie-dye cover up also comes in pink too. Right now it’s so hard for me to shop online because everything fits so different lol. Everything is growing so fast so I wish I would have sized up in this bikini!

On another note, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is right around the corner ya’ll! I’m so so excited and can’t wait to share my finds with you all. Early access starts July 13th and open to the public on July 21st so mark your calendars!

enjoy,

Gender Reveal


dress // shoes // earrings

Happy Thursday ya’ll!

If you follow on Instagram then you know Levi and I finally had our gender reveal this past weekend! We’ve had the ultrasound photos in an envelope for 5 weeks and nobody knew but my sister and brother-in-law. As you can see in the picture below all of the wives tales said girl but my gut said boy since day one! Clearly Levi was extremely excited that it was a boy, haha. It was such a great day full of friends, family and good food. I’m linking my dress above. Alex Antle from Cowan and Co. did my fun braided updo.

Year 3 of Blogging

dress // shoes // sunnies

Doesn’t seem like I published my first blog post 3 years ago today! I remember when I pushed publish I was so so nervous but excited all at the same time. What a lot of people don’t know is that I kept my blog a secret from my friends and family for the longest time. I guess I was just scared of what people would think! I’m from a very small town and I don’t even know if people knew what blogging even meant. I finally built up enough courage to start sharing my blog posts/photos on my personal accounts and I was surprised to see how supportive people were! Don’t get me wrong, there were definitely people who made fun of me and still do but I’ve learned to just deal with it. Not everyone is accepting. The only thing that matters is that I love blogging, who cares about anyone else!

How did you grow your blog?

I wish there was a secret answer to this. Just last week I hit 10K followers on Instagram which took me 3 years. It wasn’t until the past year or so I’ve really tried to focus on my photos and creating great content. Find your niche, build blogger relationships, and love what you do!

Is blogging time consuming?

YES! It’s basically like having a full time job. You have to plan outfits, plan photoshoots, edit photos, write up blog posts, link all your outfit details, etc…..the list goes on and on. Even though it’s super time consuming, I love it! You just have to plan ahead and be organized.

What kind of camera do you use?

Canon EOS Rebel T5 with a 50mm lens. Right now, it does the job but I’m looking to upgrade soon.

How do you get to work with companies?

I reach out to companies with post ideas or they reach out to me if they like my content.

Who takes your pictures?

For the longest time my mom took them. Now that I’ve moved I’m teaching Levi how to take them! I also hire photographers from time to time.

 

Let me know if you have any questions,

xoxo

TGIF!

I’m heading to Kentucky this weekend because IT’S GENDER REVEAL WEEKEND! I’ve had the envelope containing the gender of our baby for FOUR weeks and I finally will know tomorrow. I honestly can’t believe neither Levi or I peeked lol. I’ll try to be posting on insta stories/snap throughout the day to update you guys. You can follow me on snap (bmclean839) or my personal Instagram account (bethmmclean)!

Now back to the purpose of this post, the luggage! This adorable pink carry-on is perfect for my weekend trips to KY. Makes it so easy to organize everything and it’s the cutest luggage I’ve ever owned! You can get 20% off your own luggage by shopping here and using my code: SimplyBethanyxo20. I have been wearing this Georgia Babe tee like every day because it’s so comfortable, especially for my growing bump! I’m wearing an XL for an oversized look. Also, if you’re looking for a great pair of slip ons that go with everything, these nude pair are only $24. BTW- I would size down half a size!

enjoy,

xoxo

Wedding Season with Filly Flair


c/o:dress (same print here) // shoes // bag(SOLD OUT) // sunnies // watch // bracelet


c/o:dress(SOLD OUT) // shoes // earrings // sunnies // watch // bracelet

In honor of wedding season being in full swing, I’m partnering with Filly Flair to bring you two fun wedding looks! Whether it’s a casual wedding or formal wedding, these two looks will work for you! I’m a huge fan of floral prints for summer. Although that exact dress is sold out, a similar style of the same print is still available. I paired it with sandals for more of a casual look. The black lace dress is amazing! I love the high neck.

enjoy,

xoxo
