What I Wanted
Within the first week of June, I was clicking around and somehow came upon these mules from Jenni Kayne (pictured above). Looove this new neutral color they have for the summer and I reeeaaally wanted them. But alas, I again did not buy them because $395 is just too much to spend on shoes for me right now. I guess I’ll continue to stalk The RealReal for a pair of these.
Also wanted but not purchased was this Mansur Gavriel Protea bag in a new color called Biscotti with a cream interior. So dreamy!
What I Wanted & Bought
I bought a new foundation for the first time in a long time. I was tired of my super matte powder foundation (so old that it’s no longer being sold) and my super shiny Suntegrity tinted sunscreen (which I’ve been using for 2 years). So I went to look for something that could provide coverage but not be too matte nor too shiny. And I think I found it in this Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation. It goes on well with a beauty blender and doesn’t break me out.
I bought quite a few things for the baby this month including the Lovevery Play Kit for 3-4 month olds as well as the Lovevery Play Gym. I hadn’t purchased any toys for Emi yet and now at 3 months she’s starting to play with things (so fun!). So I thought I’d try out the things from Lovevery (dang their Instagram marketing got me *facepalm*). My review of their Play Kit was posted just 2 days ago.
As for what I clothes I bought myself this month: I saw the Esby Duffy Jumper on Brianna here and loved it so much I immediately scoured the internet for a used one. I was lucky to snag a denim blue version of the Duffy Jumper on eBay. I’ll be doing a review of it soon, but let me just say this one is not going to be sticking around my wardrobe for very long.
And summer dresses from Everlane are my weakness (along with their shoes, bags, and button-down shirts) so I couldn’t resist trying out this year’s version, which includes a new version of the collarless shirt dress (their 2017 version has been one of my favorite dresses from Everlane). Love that this year’s version has 3/4 length sleeves! Also decided to try their picnic dress just to see. Oh and I got the easy shorts because I looove love love my easy Chinos that these are modeled after. Also I no longer fit into any of my shorts from pre-pregnancy so there’s that. Will let you know how I liked them all in a review soon!
And finally I’ve been craving some summery straw accessories but I’ve been buying enough new stuff so I decided to hit up eBay, the RealReal and some thrift stores in town to satisfy these cravings. I was able to find an old Ralph Lauren straw bucket bag on eBay and a cheapo straw hat at a thrift store. I also had tried a Janessa Leone straw hat that was gorgeous, but also $140 used (retails for $275 new!) and decided I didn’t wear hats enough to justify buying a hat that expensive. So I returned it. If I end up wearing this thrifted one a lot then I might think about getting a Janessa Leone one in the future.
I’m planning to do a No Buy July, so I hope next month’s post will be about all the things I wanted but did not buy :)
