birkenstocks and bip + bop giveaway!

i so wish i had a picture of my old man in his birkenstocks to kick off this what i wore post. because he's the ultimate example of wearing whatever you want, no matter the trend. he's worn his birks for, oh i don't know, the past 20 years probably, whether they were in or out of style. and this time, his persistence has paid off! birkenstocks, my friends, are back in.

i'm not gonna lie, i'm actually pretty excited about these suckers making a comeback. in case you've been deprived and have never stepped foot into a birkenstock, they are THE most comfortable sandal on the planet earth. they conform to your feet and give you comfort that no other sandal, not even my favorite flip-flop rainbow, can offer. and i am obsessed with my rainbows! but i digress.

if you're gonna jump on the birkenstock bandwagon, now's the time. really, if you're gonna buy ANYTHING at nordstrom, now's the time. because starting today, through march 23, you'll earn triple points on all your purchases at nordstrom if you use your nordstrom debit or credit card. these birkenstocks, they're an investment. not exactly cheap. BUT, one that you'll be so SO glad you made.

now that we've talked about my shoes for 3 straight paragraphs, it's time to move onto the rest! floral is so hot right now, and these pants will make you feel like you're walkin around in your jammies. nothing  better, right? how about when they're from forever 21 and only $17.80. that'll make anyone's day. my basic v-neck is from target and so soft and stretchy. perfect for underneath flowy pants like these.

last but absolutely not least, let's just talk about my gold bar necklace. it's from this darling little etsy shop called bip and bop and i've had about a dozen requests from readers to know where my new darling necklace is from. well, not only am i telling you BUT bip and bop is going to spoil you today. they're giving you 15% off anything in their shop with code MINTARROW at checkout, and, AND as if that wasn't great enough! you can enter to win $100 store credit in the giveaway widget below. good luck!

Never Miss a Deal
Hi, I’m Corrine and it’s pretty simple. I think you deserve to buy the things you want at a price you can afford. Here you can find the best deals and steals on high end fashion, as well as beauty and wellness tutorials.


  1. So cute!! Think I may still have my birks…I’ll have to dig them out! What self-tanner do you use or is it a spray tan?! Looks amazing!!

    P.S. Love your blog!! I’ve gotten so many good deals thanks to you! Pretty much check it daily!

    1. thanks so much crystal! i have traditionally always used and loved st tropez self-tanner, but i just barely switched to tanwise after my friend cara recommended it on her blog and i’m loving that even more! it’s a lot less expensive and works just as well, if not better! here’s where you can get it:

    1. so sorry melanie! i’m trying out a few different ways for people to enter giveaways, so i’ll be sure to do a different one next time!

  2. Gorgeous pics of you, Corrine!! Love these floral pants and have been a major fan of Bip and Bop forever! That bar necklace is super cute!!

  3. You are seriously gorgeous! I love that you post affordable and yet ADORABLE outfits. I just found your blog and was looking at older entries, one in particular about your eyelash extensions. Do you still go to Mandy Durr and Taylor Andrews?

  4. How funny, my husband found some birks online last summer and just HAD to have them. I thought it was hilarious at first but they didn’t look half bad once they came in! I’ll have to tell him that he’s “in style” now, along with his “naturally distressed” pants (I try to explain that Gap’s distressed pants don’t sport grease stains and frayed hems from the spurs on his boots, but he says to give it some time and they will!). I have a pending post for summer essentials for the whole family and I had the Birkenstocks listen for the “him” category. Makes it even better knowing that it’s trending! Thanks for the tip! Now I might need a pair…
