Stuff in My Shopping Cart

When you’re shopping around online, do you leave things in your “shopping cart” just in case? Or am I the only one that does that? Sometimes I use it as a mechanism to earmark it for later if I have something else to buy from that store, or if I can finally justify the purchase.

I’m honestly not too impressed with the early fall clothes that the stores have started releasing so far, but this is a roundup of what is currently in my shopping carts:

Ann Taylor

This dress is so cute, but it’s online only so I’m suspicious about the fabric (I don’t love all of AT’s fabric choices). Also, at this point, it’s a little on the summery side, so it wouldn’t be great in the fall and winter. They have some good new flats and pumps too.

Loft

Crisp royal blue and white stripes seems to be trendy right now. I think this shirt would be fun with navy pants or pink pants, or even underneath a sleeveless dress. It also has some interesting back detail (It doesn’t have to be tied like in the picture). Just hanging on for a sale.

Banana Republic

 

They had me at faux leather pants. And also at faux leather skirt. I had a faux leather skirt a couple years ago and I loved it, but it’s too big on me so I donated it. I have faux leather Spanx leggings, but why have one pair of faux leather pants…

Nordstrom

My friend at work was wearing these shoes the other day, and I’ve had my eye on them for a while. I think they’re so cool, but also pricey at about $200. I’m taking a beat on them to see if I really need them. But also, I want these Vince Camuto shoes.

Boden

How pretty is this color? It’s the perfect silhouette for work, but the color makes it a little special. We’ll see if I can justify it.

JCrew

I tried this style on in the store a few months ago and I thought it was cute. I just wasn’t sure how I would wear it. I’m still thinking about it, especially because it’s on sale now.

August is the Best Month

August is my favorite month for many reasons. Here are a few things I’m up to right now:

What I’m Reading

Sadie Dishes: August is the Best Month

I only seem to find time to read during the summer when I’m sitting by the pool or the ocean. So far I’ve finished an interesting biography of Jackie O; read the latest memoir from one of my faves- Jen Lancaster; and now I’m working on an interesting book about hosting meetings and events. The Art of Gathering¬†goes through the various steps of planning a get together and preaches grounding every decision (invite list, venue, activities, etc.) to align with the true purpose of the gathering. So often we rely on convenience, defer to precedent, or focus on logistics when planning meetings and events when it should be about encouraging interaction and human connection to get the intended result. My favorite part so far is “don’t be a chill host.”

What I’m Watching

TV has been pretty good this summer. My TV life is basically Bravo, plus a couple other shows. I just finished the latest season of Younger. I enjoyed the latest season of Southern Charm a lot, and now I’m all in on Southern Charm Savannah. I’m keeping up with the some Housewives. The only Bravo show that didn’t do it for me this summer was Below Deck Med. I didn’t really like the cast at all. And I wasn’t going to watch it, but I just got sucked into Very Cavallari. I only really watch stupid TV. Sue me.

What I’m Wearing

I’m wearing anything that keeps me cool in this heat and humidity. At work that means lightweight, washable dresses. At the gym it’s breezy Adidas tanks, and on the trail, it’s my latest running sneaks. On the weekend, I’m loving the last couple things I’ve gotten from Lou & Grey. The fabric is like butta. I’ve totally lost interest in all the huge sales going on right now. I’m waiting for the new fall stuff!

How is August treating you so far?
