Summer Essentials

Recently I went to Atlanta (read about it here) and did a little summer shopping. Yes--I know I was technically on a "shopping ban," but I couldn't go to a shopping wonderland and NOT buy a couple of pieces! The shopping ban did last 17 days which was pretty fabulous for me if I do say so myself.

Long story short, the shopping ban was broken but I got some great pieces. Plus, I'm initiating the ban again starting today (that makes it ok, right?).

Onto my purchases. The pictures above are not the exact items/brands I bought, but they are extremely close.

  • I bought two pairs of chinos from Gap in hot pink and white. I'm super excited about these because they are a great fit and a really light material
  • Gap also had some great fitting v-neck t shirts. I bought one in mint (of course) and lavender - a new favorite. With some jewelry, I think these will make cute combos with the chinos.
  • This is NOT the maxi dress I bought, mine actually came from the loft outlet. It's a navy/paisley combo and I love. I'm also loving this old navy maxi dress shown above. 
  • I bought a skirt similar to the one shown above from old navy. It was on clearance for $11 and  perfect fit. I couldn't pass it up!
  • Finally, I'm in love with these sandals. The ones pictured above are from target. Mine are very similar, but I bought them from Marshall's for $19.99. 
I'm super excited about my summer staples, now I'm ready for some 70 degree weather to wear them!

What summer staples are you loving?

  2. Old Navy clearance is seriously great! And I totally couldn't go to Atlanta and not get something!!

    1. Yes it is! I felt it was just wrong to not buy a few essentials in Atlanta :)

  3. I love white pants and the skirt is adorable. What's even great is the price! :) Where do you live by the way? I can't remember. Oh and by the way, I used the TJ Maxx gift card for some awesome running gear so thank you!! :)

    1. I know, you can't beat $12! I live in Kentucky. Glad you got some good gear :)
