Recent Purchases You Should Know About

Happy Friday! I’m ending the week by sharing some of my recent purchases I think you should know about. Some I’ve have and have been using and others I just snagged on sale. Lately, I’ve been all about comfort, so if you’re pregnant or just like some good ole comfort pieces, be sure to read on.

August's recent purchases

Commando Mini Cami Slip s/m – I had been needing a nude slip for all my white dresses for a while. I wasn’t sure how to go about finding one, but I was pretty desperate right before we left for California and ordered this one on a whim. Way more than I would have like to spend on a slip, but it does the job and is super comfortable. It’s thicker than your normal slip that usually comes with dresses, so keep that in mind. It’s short enough on me to work with all my dresses. I will say, if your dress has slits on the sides, your slip may end up showing a little bit. I went with a s/m and it fits perfectly.

Zella Moonlight leggings xs – I’ve been raving about these since Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, so I figured I’d share them again since they came back in-stock… or so at least I thought, lol. I just checked the site and the black have sold out again. But, they do come in a new teal color for those of you who like a little color to workout our lounge around in. The Live In midi leggings have the same exact fit, which I also happen to have. If you’re short like me, these will hit you right at the ankle.

Madewell Whisper crewneck tee xs – I have been living in Madewell’s Whisper cotton tees ever since I’ve been pregnant. The neckline is high enough, so I don’t have to worry about my big boobs popping out. I ordered a size up from my normal size and it fits comfortably without looking sloppy. I have it in the ivory stripe color as well as gray. Thinking about adding a couple other colors to my collection.

Gap Iconic denim jacket petite xs – I tried the regular xs on in person and loved the soft denim, so I ended up ordering the petite xs online. My other denim jackets are officially too tight, so I had been searching for a couple options that were both affordable and comfortable. I don’t own a light wash denim jacket like this, so I’m excited to change things up. Gap tends to run big on me, so I’m assuming my normal size will fit perfectly. Stay tuned to see how I style this one.

Anthropologie Swing dress petite xxs – I ordered this dress right before we left for California and I can’t say enough good things. Reviews mentioned the petite sizes ran super short, but for me, that’s always good news. The xxs petite hits me at the perfect length and since it’s such a flowy dress, I didn’t have to size down. I love the embroidered details and easy vibes it has. For those not petite, this dress also comes in white. Honestly, it’s one of the easiest pieces in my closet right now that I can just throw on.

AGOLDE slim boyfriend jeans 24 – I have had these jeans for a while now, but I wasn’t able to wear them because they were too big. Luckily I saved them because they’re one of the only pairs of jeans I’ve been reaching for lately. Not only do they still have room in the waist, but the denim is SO soft. The wash also happens to be super flattering and perfect. Pregnant or not, I couldn’t recommend these more. If you’re not pregnant, I would size down.

Madewell ribbed tank dress s – Another piece I’ve been living in, which I’ll talk more about next week. This has been my go-to piece, especially since we’re still experiencing a major heat wave. It seems like I throw this one anytime I leave the house. It’s comfortable and easy, which is all I’ve been wearing lately. I sized up to a small, but I think I would have even if I wasn’t pregnant. With more form fitted things (which I normally don’t wear), I always size up. My favorite pregnancy dress so far! And it’s on sale!

Calpak 20 inch carry-on – We had been needing to update our luggage, so we snagged this carry-on right before our trip to the Bay Area. Can I just say, I love Nordstrom’s fast shipping. We waited until the last minute and did two day shipping for this guy. It arrived a couple days before we left, without any issues. We have an Away carry-on as well, so we knew we wanted the similar hard shell style. We got the all black for Mike and he loves it. It’s roomy and fits all your essentials. Mike’s so obsessed with it, he wants to get the whole collection, lol. We also love that Calpak is fairly affordable. If you’re in the market for luggage or carry-on’s I would highly suggest checking out Calpak. An assortment of colors and even come in these fun marble prints.

Abercrombie & Fitch ribbed tank dress petite xs – Since I love my madewell ribbed tank dress so much, I’ve been searching for more easy pieces like it to get me through the rest of summer. I checked the A&F site the other day and hit pregnancy jackpot. Not technically maternity clothes, but they had so many easy, comfortable pieces that could work for me and on sale! I ended up ordering this dress in stripe and gray, this pocket tank dress in black and gray, the ruffle sleeve knit dress in stripes, and this pocket tee dress in navy stripe. Everything should be arriving today, so I’ll keep you posted on how everything fits. If you’re in need of some easy basics you can get 30% off your entire purchase this weekend!
