My Style: Summer Purchases

June 30, 2017

We are nine days into the official summer season and oops, I went on a shopping spree for all the summer things. Swimsuits, flip flops, and even some "real clothes", too. Who am I? I just found too many good deals and cute things I couldn't say no to, so I'm sharing all my finds! #treatyoself

My style is definitely changing into more of an easy and quick-but-put together style and I hate shopping for "real clothes". Never thought I'd say that. My shopping trips (or online orders) consist of activewear about 97% of the time - however lately I've felt the need to find some new clothes I can't wear to a gym.

Anywho, my latest purchases are all super affordable (even though most I bought were on sale) so you can still have enough funds for summer vacation, to finally try a paddle boarding class, or indulge in a spontaneous ice cream trip. Maybe several. Bruster's coupons for the win!

I seriously am so in love with everything, but wanted to highlight some of my top purchases.

Target one-piece swimsuit - I'm never gonna shut up about this swimsuit because it's that perfect. I wore it last weekend when we went whitewater tubing in Harper's Ferry and it was the perfect suit to wear for a fun (and eventful) afternoon. Even though I got some scrapes from a few encounters with rocks, my suit was untouched, thankfully. ;)

Havaianas black ring flip flops - along with a sporty swimsuit, I've been looking for flip flops that I can wear paddle boarding, or to the beach, that will also last me a while. I bought my first pair of Havaianas and I really love them. They're cute and functional and come in 6 different colors. I wasn't sure if they run true to size, and ended up having to get a 7/8 (I'm usually a size 6 or 7).

LOFT curvy frayed cuff jeans - if you follow me on Instagram, you saw my stories a couple weekends ago when I went to LOFT to find a pair of white jeans. I saw they were having a sale - and I've always loved their jeans - so I decided to see what they had. Trying to find jeans is not fun and I was having fit issues until a sweet employee suggested trying on a straight fit (instead of skinny). You guys - GAME CHANGER! The straight fit gave me enough leg room, weren't too tight and I didn't have that awful bulge in the back. I love them so much I want to get the same pair in a dark denim wash.

If you have size/fit questions about any of my purchases, feel free to email me or leave a comment and I'll be sure to help ya out!

PS: Happy Friday! We made it through another week! I hope everyone has a great weekend/July 4th! After work today, I'm headed home to PA for 4 days and I cannot wait to spend time with my family and celebrate my birthday. #firecracker I even packed my new bicycle! Follow along over on Instastories for all the fun! ;)

What summer purchases have you made so far?



  1. EEK! I don't own any one piece swimsuits but they are just so darn cute I think I need to get one. Target makes the best swimsuits.
