How was everyone's week? Mine was pretty uneventful other than a fun BBQ with friends on the 4th of July, oh and also playing a new board game with friends (we played Puerto Rico, have you played it before? It was fun if not a tad long). Anyway it was very weird not to post all week on either this blog or on Instagram. I thought I might catch-up on posts during this hiatus but nope, I hardly wrote anything and it felt kind of nice. Also it was nice to take a break from Insta (though I did a couple Insta stories, but that's fun for me).
So one week into No Buy July, and I already want to buy stuff (*facepalm*) but instead of buying it I will just talk about it here. First up is the new line of cropped tees from Everlane. I know I don't need any of these, nor does Everlane have the best quality tees. But they would look so cute with my high-waisted Elizabeth Suzann (ES) Clydes, my linen skirts and even my new Dune pants from Only Child. But I will resist. If there's any available in August I might think about it (though I originally planned for a no buy July and August, I'm rethinking that August bit). I also want to get Everlane's Day Heel Mules in this natural suede color. I really love my cognac Day Heel Mules (reviewed here) and I've worn them a ton now (okay well 23 days so far to be exact, and they are now at $6.73/ per wear). But I don't like how the cognac color is a tad too warm to go with my ES linen Clyde skirt or my notPerfectLinen skirt. So I think this natural suede color would be the perfect cool-toned neutral to go with my other cool-toned clothes. And lastly I just saw this cute belt bag from a Parisian brand named celine lefebure and I really love it. The brand is a small one and their site doesn't go into their ethics too much except to say the bags are made in Italy. I probably won't get it since I'm not sure how practical such a small bag is, but I can still admire it from afar, lol. But these are all things I don't need so I will wait and see if I still want them at the end of the month. Anyone else doing a No Buy July and how's it going?
Also anyone planning to do the summer 10x10 challenge? I usually skip the summer version because in the past I've pretty much worn just a tee and jean shorts all summer (plus it's peak season for the Airstream biz). But this year I've got my ES linen clyde pants and skirt, my notPerfectLinen skirt, my Only Child alta top and ES petra top so I feel like I've got a ton of fun options. So it's about time I finally participated in the summer one. It starts July 27. Anyone else with me?
