Greetings! How is everyone’s week going so far? Ours is off to a good start. I did a bunch of try-ons yesterday that I’d been saving up, and I even shared some on my Instagram Story, if you want to check them out. If you aren’t on Instagram, no worries! I’ll be posting all of those plus more to the blog on Friday.
And today I rounded up my August Favorites to share with you. These are some new finds and old favorites I’m particularly loving right now.
one // (also at Nordstrom) // I feel like I’m cheating on my beloved Mother Insiders, but these jeans have been on constant repeat since I got them a few weeks ago. They are as soft and comfortable as the Mothers, and they have a similar wash and silhouette but without the chewed step hem and all the distressing. While those are fun details, these are more polished and just as easy to wear.
The only drawback to these is that they’re super spendy, but if you have the budget and wear jeans often (and if you like a cropped flare), I highly recommend trying them.
two // I ordered these 14K gold earrings during the Saks OFF 5TH Jewelry Event, but they’re actually on a better sale now than they were then! I love the simple elegance, and they’re very nice quality too. They’re a really nice everyday earring.
three // I’ve been talking about this personal microdermabrasion device for a while, and I’m still using it, so I thought I’d include it here. I love how my skin feels after, and I’m hoping the longterm results are all they’re cracked up to be.
four // We just remodeled our master bath, and instead of putting a built-in bench in our shower, I kept it simple and purchased this teak bench in the corner. I like how it adds a natural element to our decor, and it’s pretty as well as functional.
five (save version here) // I’ve worn this cable knit sweater tank a few times already, usually out to dinner with Paul. I love the luxe/casual vibe, and it’s a little unexpected, which makes it fun. I also linked up a similar for less version on Amazon, although mine is now on a really good sale.
six // My current foundation/powder combo. This foundation is actually based on a serum, so it’s part skincare, part makeup. And the powder is great for toning down redness and discoloration.
eight // This dress turned out to be a great little summer closet staple. I reach for it a lot — it’s perfect for church and meeting friends for lunch. It’s on sale, and still well stocked in both the pink and olive green. Size up in this one!
nine & thirteen // This is one of my favorite swimsuits, post-surgery. I love the soft almost knit fabric, and the print is really pretty too. It’s reversible, but I never wear it on the other side. I believe I have a small in both pieces, for size reference.
ten // These sandals are perfect for the summer to fall transition. I love the wood grain platform and the mix of suede and leather, and this cognac color goes with everything. They’re true to size (I have the 8) and a lot of sizes just came back in stock!
eleven // I bought this little soap dish for our shower. I love how it picks up on the black and teak elements from the rest of the room, and it keeps the soap from getting wet and soggy.
twelve // I ordered this set of drawer organizers from Amazon, but the jury is still out on if I like them or not. I realize this post is supposed to be my “favorites” but I was hoping it would be!
I just finally got around to working on it last night, and I don’t know…. it’s a pain to get everything folded up just right. Does anyone have something better to recommend?
fourteen (similar for less) // I have talked about these shorts ad nauseam, but they had to be included in this list because I wear them about five times a week. I have seriously worn them for the past 4 days straight… And yes, they’re going in the wash!
But anyway! They are so soft and comfortable, and the length is perfect. They also look with a single cuff.
fifteen // This simple tank is also on repeat. It’s soft and comfortable and comes in tons of colors. It does shrink up some in the wash, so be prepared for that, but the small still fits me perfectly. (So it’s true to size.)
