May Wardrobe Updates & June Planning


I was frivolous this month - and went a little overboard on the shoes. I do love the ones that I bought, but let's be honest, I don't need anymore shoes. I'm on a shoe no-buy from now until the Fall. As always, linking up with Fran from franish :)

MAY PURCHASES

1. Aritzia Kent Blazer - $85 - on sale now for $80
2. Sperry Harlow booties - $60, but paid $0 because of credit card rewards :)
3. Old Navy Gladiator Wedge Sandals - $24
4. Old Navy T-Strap Sandals - $5 on sale!

TOTAL: $114 
Still under budget, but more than I would have liked to spend ideally! 

I'm really enjoying the Aritzia blazer. It's a longer, looser fitting blazer than something I'd normally wear to an interview. This might sound silly, but I feel really edgy when wearing it! I wasn't sure about the purchase when I received it though. The sleeves are really wide, and I would never wear it without the sleeves rolled up.

As for the shoes - like I said, I love them. Really, I love any pair of shoes that I buy, but I really shouldn't be buying shoes. The t-strap sandals are really lightweight and great for when I'm running out of the house since they're so easy to slip on. They're also perfect for throwing in my bag for a day that I need to wear heels.

The strappy gladiator sandals are another love. I've worn them in several outfits so far, and they're proving to be quite versatile. I love that they've got a slight heel to them, which lengthen my short legs. It's a touch more grown up than if I had purchased a flat sandal.

The desert style wedge boot I bought from Amazon were really just a purchase I had been mulling for a while. I really like the style, even though I think (?) they were trendy a year ago? They were tough on the feet the first day I wore them, but they're quite comfortable now and perfect for colder days. They'll be a workhorse this Fall. I'm glad I got them in the grey, since I think they'll show less dirt and go along with more of the clothes that I have.

JUNE WANTS

I'm listing them here as wants because I definitely don't need these things. But I've been thinking about Everlane all month and they've come out with so many different lines of clothing lately. I don't particularly want any of the new lines, but having come to the site for them, I browsed and have my eye on a few things. These will probably be spread over two months and spill over to July as well.

  2. My vote goes to the silk tank dress in gray. If you do end up getting it let us know how sheer it is! I'm always a bit worried about that with silk and linen (having bought a linen shirtdress lately.) It sucks when you have to buy extra clothes to not flash people! :P

    1. That's what I'm afraid of with that dress - I own zero slips and I really don't want to buy one either haha.

  3. I've been intrigued by the Everlane silk tank dresses too, though I don't think a purchase will be in the cards for me. I actually bought a fairly similar dress from Club Monaco last December during the Xmas sales. The Ryan tanks are nice, i like those a lot (the Small is a little bit low-cut on me, but is definitely the right size).

    1. How tall are you? Is it loose fitting for you, or more fitted?

  4. Great picks! I know what you mean about shoes, I can NOT buy any more. I barely have enough storage for the ones I have now!

    1. Ugh I know - I'm in the process of moving, and shoes consist of almost an entire box.

  5. I like the blazer! I'm still hunting for my perfect one. It's probably a good thing Everlane doesn't ship direct to Australia, I would've spent so much money on them otherwise...

    1. What are you looking for in a blazer? I've just got two - the one here, and a shorter more structured one for interviews. And haha, yes. I stop myself on the daily from shopping at Everlane. Their price points are just a little bit high for an impulse purchase for me.

    2. Hm a lot of the blazers I come across (in my price range) are more feminine/fitted ones, I'm looking for one that's a bit more relaxed boyfriend style. I'm also hoping for a stiffer wool/cotton/linen blend instead of 100% polyester.

  6. I love all the shoes you got, they're perfect for the summer!

    1. Yes! Both the sandals have been in heavy rotation, along with a flat pair of gladiators that I have from years ago lately!
