Recent Spring Purchases
I share so much on Instagram, Stories and the LTK app that I forget to share it here on the blog (um hello!). I recently bought a few things for spring that I’m super pumped about, so I wanted to share them with you. I normally order a ton of things I’ve been eyeing and nearly 90% gets returned because I either don’t like it, it doesn’t fit, or I realize I don’t need it. But this time, I liked nearly everything – this NEVER happens! These outfits make me so excited for warmer weather – hurry up Portland!
Sol Angeles sweatshirt xs – I’ve been a sweatshirt person my whole life. I could literally wear a hoodie or pullover everyday, especially now that I’m a mom and I just want comfort and ease. As if I needed another gray pullover, but the second I saw this one, I had to have it! It just looked so cozy and I love the simple graphic. Best part, it’s so cozy – like so soft and perfectly oversized. I will live in this at home and even out running around with Harper.
Madewell button-front sweater xs – I’m a big fan of button-front sweaters and this one is so perfect for spring. It’s more fitted, so I went up 1 size. The neckline is not too low, which I love. Honestly, this is just such a great basic to be tucked into cropped jeans.
Nobody Denim wide legged jeans 24 – I took a chance on these and I’m so happy I did because I’m obsessed! They’re really high-waisted, which I LOVE. I cut the hems and shared it in this post here. They attract some lint (as all white jeans do), but not as bad as some other jeans I have and definitely tolerable. Thick, stretchy, and super comfortable.
St. Agni mules 35 – These mules have been on my wishlist since last spring. I waited and waited because they’re quite pricey, but decided to pull the trigger. If something still catches my eye a year later, I would say they’re worth it. When I pulled them out of the box, they looked big, but I think the pointed toe is deceiving. When I put them on, they fit really well. They aren’t overly comfortable right now, but since they’re leather, I have a feeling they take some breaking in. I will keep you posted on comfort level once I wear them more.
Madewell Kimono xxs -I was initially thinking this kimono would be cute worn tied with cropped flare or skinny jeans, but I actually love it open. It’s very boxy, but works, at least on my petite frame. I love the idea of collecting classic pieces in different and fun silhouettes and this kimono is just that. A great layer that’s different from a cardigan or a jacket.
Anine Bing Larchmont sunglasses – These sunglasses have been on my wishlist since last year and I’m so glad I pulled the trigger because I’m obsessed! I was only buying metal sunglasses for the longest time, but my Quay After Hours sunglasses kinda changed my mind. I used to wear oversized sunglasses when I was younger and looking back, I hated the way they looked on me. But, my style has completely changed, I’m digging this style so much. I love the tortoise color for spring and summer, too!
J.Crew Stripe Top xxs – I know I wear stripes A LOT once the weather warms up, so I wanted to stock up on some before everything sells out. I was hesitant to buy this top because it looks so thick online. But, I was pleasantly surprised. Yes, it’s thick, but I love the fit. It’s oversized and boxy, but it drapes so nicely. The arms are tailored, which makes this style flattering. I think once I wash and dry it, I will be perfect. If you’re thinking about buying it, I would size down at least one size.
J.Crew Stripe Top xxs – And because I loved this top in the classic navy and white color, I had to get the red, white, and blue. This top is so quintessential summer to me. I love the all American vibes and can’t wait to wear it with shorts and jeans.
Loewe Tote Medium – I wanted to be mindful of my shoe and bag purchases this year. I used to buy a lot of cute inexpensive bags and shoes during the summer only to wear a couple. In the last year or so, I decided to make investment purchases in my accessories, buy less, and really wear and love them. Instead of buying a handful of summer bags that I will end up not using over the years or selling, I bought this classic Loewe raffia tote and I love it. The tan leather details pair so well with my neutral wardrobe and the color matches my Hermes sandals perfectly. The medium is a great size to throw all my crap including a few of Harper’s things. My only complaint – the straps don’t fit over my shoulders. I wish there was another hole to move the straps up a little.
Madewell Denim Shirt Jacket xxs – I honestly didn’t expect this to fit. Even the xxs at Madewell tends to run large especially when it comes to outerwear. But, I love this shirt jacket. I have always wanted a shirt/jacket hybrid and this is just that. It runs slightly oversized, but in the best way possible. This is a great layer for spring and summer.
Michael Stars sweater xs – I might have a problem collecting white sweaters. But, I can’t get enough, they’re so good! I know I will live in this sweater all spring and summer. The waffle texture is the perfect detail and I love the oversized fit.
Abercrombie & Fitch top xs – This top is so soft and comfortable. I wasn’t sure how it would fit, so I didn’t get the xxs, but it does run oversized, so I could have easily gone with the xxs. It’s a little bit cropped but you can easily tuck it into high-waisted jeans or shorts. Another great basic and just so darn comfortable.
Abercrombie & Fitch jeans 24 short – These jeans are actually very similar to the GRLFRND Karolina jeans, but more affordable. The 24 petite (my normal size) runs slightly tight, but I think they will stretch (so not going to size up) after some wear. The length hits right at the ankle, so I will need to the cut the hems a bit for a cropped fit. If you’re 5’2′, these will fit cropped on your without cutting. These have a mom style fit (not straight leg) and they’re a true high-rise.
Abercrombie & Fitch top xs – I don’t think I’m going to keep this top, but it’s super adorable. I don’t do really cropped tops and this one is pretty short. I can barely tuck it into my high-rise shorts. But, it’s really cute and affordable. The embroidery is nice for warm weather and the puff sleeves are a nice detail.
