Here we are in the last week of June. I can’t believe how fast the warmer months always seem to fly by! I’ve been meaning to do a roundup of some of my favorite purchases for quite some time. I always love to see what other people buy, and enjoy when other bloggers do these, so I thought I’d give it a go here. Half way through the year seems like a good time to try out a new series – and this month had a nice mix of fashion, beauty and home, so here goes- my June favorite purchases and best buys.
Starting with these white hi-rise jeans from Madewell. I’m obsessed with them right now! At first, I wasn’t sure if the higher rise was going to work for me. I have a short torso, so I typically don’t like how most high rise jeans look. The 10″ rise on these jeans seems to go just high enough to banish the dreaded muffin top, which is exactly what I was after. They’re super stretchy, but don’t look baggy at the end of the day. Most importantly, these jeans are not at all see through- which is key for white jeans. The jeans fit true to size. Love them so much I might try to find a non-cropped, non frayed version at Madewell, for dressier looks.
My obsession with pale pink is partly driven by these platform wedge sandals. I typically don’t wear a lot of high heels, but these are only 3″ high, giving me height and comfort in one cute shoe. The pale pink works like a neutral and I’ve already paired them with both white jeans and black pants. I can’t think of a summer outfit these wedges wouldn’t work with!
I’m a sucker for chic packaging – so of course this lovely little bottle of soap caught my eye. It’s all natural and smells so good! I put one in our guest bathroom upstairs, but now I think I might pick up a few more to give as gifts.
I have to admit, I have a bit of a “problem” when it comes to lip glosses, balms and tints. I’m always looking for “the” perfect product, one which combines a little color with a little balm and doesn’t taste or smell weird. Bobbi Brown lip glosses are a personal favorite as they always come in the most flattering shades, so I decided to try this lip tint out. Went with the bare pink, and I’m already thinking I need another one. LOVE this!
Lastly, we needed to replace our outdoor umbrellas as they were all broken after years of wear and tear. When I saw these cute scalloped versions over on Wayfair, I went ahead and ordered three to place around our pool. One arrived broken and we had to replace it. The customer service at Wayfair exceeded my expectations and made the whole experience a breeze! Seriously, love the umbrellas, the price and the ease of dealing with a defective return makes this purchase an absolute win/win!
