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.
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.
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.
