Sometimes I put off purchasing the things I know I really need to update in my closet or I’ll have been wanting for a long time to buy something because I’ll find something that I know may not be around in a few weeks or months, and I will buy that instead. These past few weeks though, I’ve finally picked up a few of the things I’ve had on my list for awhile.
The J.Crew “Kiss” t-shirt was just a lucky find. It came out almost a year ago, I think, but it was gone by the time I got to the store to get mine – it sold out fast and I was so bummed. A couple weeks ago, I stopped by the J.Crew Factory store north of Seattle, and there it was. It is so soft and perfectly slouchy – plus, graphic tees are no where near going out of style anytime soon.
Bobbi Brown Beach Shower Gel was just a fun “treat yo-self” purchase I picked up at the Bluemercury store opening in Seattle’s University Village last week. If you haven’t been yet, you have to go! They only carry the best of the best, and the displays are gorgeous – not to mention, tempting. They also have a spa on the premises. I love love love the smell of Bobbi Brown’s Beach scent. It smells like my childhood summers – sunscreen but also a bit floral. I’ve never had the shower gel before, and figured, why not add it to the collection? Clearly, I am CRAVING summer in Seattle.
The Ban.do tote is one of my favorite recent purchases – it is so me. Stripes and a neon pink heart. I use it as my tote bag for work – filled to bursting with my lunch, notebooks and a good book for my lunch break.
The mirrored Ray Ban Aviators have been on my most coveted list for a long time. They went on sale at Nordstrom last week, and I just couldn’t resist any longer. Another example of my yearning for summer around these parts…plus, the mirrored lenses are just too cool for school. I like the added flash they give to this classic style.
The Kendra Scott earrings have also been a highly coveted item for me for awhile. I have just never been able to pick which color. She has so many bright, fun colors I’ve always had a hard time picking which ones I would get. I regularly would visit the Nordstrom counter and try on at least four different colors and hem and haw over which ones were best. (Note: they ALL were the best). I finally picked the turquoise with the help of my fiance.
Lastly, it was high time for me to replace my white Converse All Stars this month. They are my favorite sneaks of all time, and in white, need to be replaced somewhat regularly since they get dingy. This year, the sales guy at Nordstrom pointed out the new slip on version and I was instantly sold. Just when I thought they couldn’t get more comfortable…
Needless to say, I’ve given my credit card a workout at Nordstrom in the past couple months. And my closet is delighted with it. As am I.
