Well, hello May! So I went a bit crazy this month and took advantage of the Memorial Day sales and stocked up. A few thoughts:
-About a month post-baby, many of my clothes don’t fit quite yet, so I need some “in between” items to hold me over. I feel like this month’s purchases make for a great capsule wardrobe– especially the J.Crew pieces- very remixable! (Speaking of, did you enter the $200 J. Crew gift card giveaway yet?)
-I did a major closet purge this month. As a result, I realized I was missing casual wear. I have plenty of blazers and pencil skirts, but nothing practical for my current lifestyle. Very pleased with the casual pieces I picked up this month.
-Because of said closet purge, I sold lots of pieces on eBay and at consignment store. Between those sales, gift cards and some blogging income, all of my purchases were “covered” so to speak. Woo hoo!
-I scored some great deals on eBay that were half off or more: Athleta tops- wear them ALL the time, Citizens of Humanity jeans, J.Crew field jacket. I blame it on the downtime I have while pumping :-) To be fair, these are great investment pieces that will get tons of wear.
-In terms of c/o or sponsored items, I grabbed some cute & comfy pajama pants from Shopbop. Let’s face it- I wear pajamas half the day anyways!
J.Crew Factory Boardwalk Shorts (navy, ivory, red): $20ish each via gift card
Not pictured: J. Crew Field Jacket in navy: $60 via eBay, including shipping –sweet deal, considering they retail for $148!
