From about June 28 until about July 9, I didn’t see anyone except my immediate family and I didn’t go anywhere other than out to buy supplies because 75% of my house had Covid. I was the only one who had had Covid back in the winter, but still I was a bit worried I would get it again, so I did lay low and wear a mask.
I actually think the fact that I have a closet full of clothes and I was only wearing lounge wear and active wear helped me to look away from all the Nordstrom sale talk and the Amazon Prime talk. Is it just me or does Nordstrom’s sale offerings look exactly the same as they have for years? The booties are the same, the jackets are the same, the sweaters are the same…I know it would be great to buy one investment piece at a lower price, but there has not been anything that tempted me. It’s a great way to get a tried and true beauty product, I think, but I am using up what I have right now. I am going to see if the Wit and Wisdom Itty Bitty Bootcut jeans are available in my size tomorrow.
Loved this from one of my IG follows!
From Prime Days, I did buy a headband, some straws, and some of the Deep Sleep pillow spray.
I am a bit disgruntled with the blogging/influencer community right now. I need more blogs that help me stay satisfied with my own wardrobe and give me new ways to wear old things. I guess there is no money to be made that way, right? It just all looks the same on every blog I read. Maybe I’m the problem!
Anyway, I did get “dressed” to have a date night last Saturday. I wore my Walmart black cut offs, a black tank, and my new Kohl’s super soft button down. I wore my last year’s Mark Fisher sandals that I love. I wanted to use my black Amazon purse but my friend took it to Paris and London (with my blessing!) so I did my clear purse.
I was comfortable and I was trying out the open shirt look. By keeping the colors the same – black shorts with black tank – it can give off a slimming effect, in my opinion.
So, my friend said that this Amazon purse was the perfect size for her Paris and London trip. She proceeded to order both colors for herself and I proceeded to add “beige” to my collection. I think it looks more cream, but Amazon calls it “beige” in the listing. Here is that purse if you are interested.
It has a side pocket for your phone and an inside pocket, too. I think they look super cute with the wider guitar straps, too. I decided to get the lighter color because I have wished for it so many times this summer as I was deciding which purse to carry. I think it will be great to have! The tassel is super cute, too.
I still love my ON shoes and I love that fact that you don’t have to tie them, but I was in the market for a new exercise shoe.
I ordered some Hokas from Zappos after trying them on in a store to see how I liked them. I would have bought them from the store, but they only had a really dark purple and I just didn’t want that color.
I took my first walk in them yesterday and they are so cushiony!
What have you been wearing lately?
