Hits and Misses

I’ve been trying to keep my wallet on lockdown the last couple months, but the below are a few of the more superfluous purchases that I’ve liked a lot and not so much.

Hits

Nike discontinued my favorite sports bra about a year or so ago. Don’t you hate when that happens? Well, after a long wait, they’ve finally brought back something comparable to my old favorite. I bought it with a little trepidation because I wasn’t sure if it would live up to my previous experiences, but I think it’s great. It doesn’t seem quite as high impact as the previous model but otherwise it fits a whole lot better than their other standard model. It looks like they’ve been adding colors so I hope that means it’s selling well and they keep it around!

I love a professional looking printed pant for work, so these from Banana were right up my ally. I’m not in love with Banana’s typical Sloane pant fabric because it’s kind of thick and doesn’t dry clean very nicely, but these are a lighter weight, closer to standard wool dress pants. They’re a keeper!

I got the above swimsuit in an teal/aqua color, and I think it’s really cute. I like the top a lot more than the bottoms, but that’s find because I can always mix and match with bottoms I like more. I think it’s a great option for water sports because everything stays relatively contained, if you know what I mean.

Misses

I ordered this blazer from Banana on super sale thinking it was home run. Not so. The fabric wasn’t great in person, and the cut was peculiar. Return.

I tried these pants on when I went to Banana to return the blazer. I loved the color and the light fabric. When I tried them on, however, the legs were too wide and the inseam was too short. They made me look short and stout. I don’t think the “Avery” fit is for me.

Gearing Up For the Tony’s

In honor of the Tony’s this weekend, I thought I would post a little throwback video. If this doesn’t make you happy, you might be dead.

My favorite thing is the expression on the faces of the innocent bystanders sitting right next to the cast members singing their hearts out. It’s a combination of bewilderment and happiness. They also did a similar performance on a subway train in New York.

And also, if you haven’t seen the James Corden Carpool Karaoke with Broadway stars– that is your homework assignment.

Let’s go Hamilton!

Last Five

Songs I downloaded on iTunes.

  1. Love in the Dark by Adele. I’m slowly accumulating Adele’s music, and while I love this song, I’m not so crazy about her latest single Send My Love (to your new lover). The verses are fine, the chorus is weird.
  2. Dance in the Graveyards by Delta Rae. I went to an A Capella concert a couple weeks ago in DC and this song was performed quite fabulously. It has a slightly morbid premise, but very joyful at the same time.
  3. Treat You Better by Shawn Mendes. This is a really catchy and sweet new tune from Shawn Mendes. I needed a new song on my playlist, and this fit the bill.
  4. Nothing But Trouble (Instagram Models) by Lil’ Wayne and Charlie Puth. This song is kind of hilarious, and a really good mix of Lil’ Wayne and Charlie Puth’s styles. It’s also just kind of funny to see these two do a song together. Charlie is getting some street cred with all of his fancy duets these days.
  5. Never Be Like You by Flume feat. Kai. This EDM song reminds me of a combination of Ellie Goulding and The Chainsmokers. It’s kind of chill and intense at the same time. I don’t really get the message, I think she cheated and she’s looking for forgiveness. I’ll have to listen again.
