Recent Purchases

It seems I have a hodge podge of recent purchases to share with you, so today’s the day. Some things don’t necessarily require a post of their own but when combined it makes for a nice little round up. This exercise has also caused me to take a look at my shopping habits of late – Amazon is most definitely getting my attention (and money) these days.

Amazon has become a favorite place to grab cute and inexpensive accessories. My green tassel earrings, my coral pair, and my new pink ones are all perfect for this time of year. Each pair was under $15, definitely a steal. They’d make a great Mother’s Day gift or end of the year teacher gift.

My bell sleeve chiffon blouse is just so darn fabulous, I am considering ordering it in another color. In addition to that my OTS palm print top and caftan are favorites as well. We are spending Mother’s Day weekend at the beach and I will be wearing that caftan non-stop, it’s so chic! It’s also a little long so knotting it may be a good idea – I am 5’5″ for reference.Chiffon Bell Sleeve Blouse

Target has caught my attention as well. The striped blazer I saw in store eventually was ordered online and arrived. I decided against the matching shorts because I own so many shorts already. I ordered a size 6 and the fit is spot on. This blazer is well made and lined. Target does it again!Striped Blazer

I also ordered this striped blouse. The back is knit. I like the colors – perfect for work or play – under a jacket, with denim, you name it! I am wearing small but would prefer a medium. I returned this. Right now Target has BOGO half price on all tops and shorts.Striped Blouse

At the time I ordered the jacket and the blouse I finally ordered the striped top. It is the very same top as my new favorite white tee so it was a no brainer. The fit is great – I am wearing a small and the fabric is thicker than a regular tee so it drapes nicely and does not cling.

Since we are traveling to Europe later this year I have been on the hunt for a pair of sneakers that are not only comfortable but somewhat fashionable. They’ll need to go with the majority of what I am packing. I ordered these from Nordstrom and I am happy to report they are comfortable. I’ll be trying them on with a few pieces to make sure they’ll work but so far I plan on keeping them.

This striped jacket (plus) caught my eye at Nordstrom as well. I ordered it in a small and the size is fine. I shared it on IG and did a poll on my stories – the results were a strong no on keeping this one instead of the striped one from Target. I really love the boho vibe of this one and it’s lighter in weight since it’s not lined. It is still in my closet because I’m not sure I am ready to part with it! Boho Striped Jacket
