Recent Purchases

Even though it's been difficult, I've been really trying to make fewer, smarter purchases this year. Instead of mindlessly purchasing things I think I'm going to wear, I have been really thinking about how I'm going to wear things and realistically, how often. Below are a couple fun things I've picked up recently!

Remember this post about wanting new sunglasses? Well, I gave that some thought too. After thinking about it, I came to the realization that I am not exactly the most careful person in the world (#oops) and that I will most likely end up breaking, smashing, losing, etc. an expensive pair. Then, when I took a trip to the J.Crew Factory store, I spotted these literally identical men's glasses that look exactly like the Rayban clubmasters! And for only $14, you could definitely call it the deal of the century. I also bought this super pretty white lace top there as well and think it is the most perfect thing for my upcoming trip to Florida. 

I also stopped in Old Navy after seeing so many cute pieces on Pinterest. Oh my goodness, I came across the most precious coral vest on sale and knew I had to have it. It looks perfect with navy, white and even the neon pink workout top I had on when I bought it! Additionally, I ran to Gap a few weeks ago as well and bought this fun baseball inspired tee. I had been looking for something like it for a long time and am in love with the one I chose. 

Have you bought anything worth chatting about lately?


  1. I totally had those sunglasses! ...but I broke them. Haha, I may need to pick up another pair. I got a pair of Ray-Ban aviators for Christmas and have been protecting them with my life because I have the worst luck with sunglasses too! I would (will be) sick if I lose or break mine.

  2. I just bought some new sunnies too and I cannot wait for them to arrive! Definitely a worth while purchase!

    Prep on a Budget

  3. I always try and save money on sunglasses, too, because they are super easy to lose! And I snagged a vest at Old Navy recently, too - I love your coral one.

  4. I looove everything in this post, especially the vest. I think that I am going to purchase a lace shirt - it would make a great end of winter to spring transition piece. I would love to see how you style it.


  5. This post is to die for! I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of tortoise sunnies and the ray-ban club masters are so expensive! I hope I can find a great deal like you!


  6. Love the baseball inspired tee! Awesome finds, I need to get out shopping!

  7. Have fun coming on down the Sunshine State! (; Can't wait to see how you like it, we don't get any snow like Winsconsin but we get rain (if that counts lol)


Thank you so much for your fabulous comment! xx
