so i guess it’s almost fall. are we buying things for fall yet? here’s a mix of the two, because i’m not ready for it to be straight up sweater buying time yet.
another batch of favorites, clearly i’m feeling a little monochromatic right now. i’m stoked on literally all of these picks, and seriously about to buy that perfectly simple LBD — but my absolute favorite is the purse. i bought it for our trip to paris because my bucket bag gets super heavy and i knew i wouldn’t want to walk around with it all day. so i got this simple little bag and i am obsessed. not only is it the perfect size, but it doesn’t get heavy feeling and it’s also so cute and really doesn’t look at all cheap. i bought it like three weeks ago and have had a dozen compliments followed by “that’s from forever 21?! i want” so go buy it right now if you trust me.
eeee. i am so excited to be leaving for paris today! i’m getting ready to eat as much unpasterized butter as i can hold in my stomach and walk and drink and take lots of photos and clearly i’m thrilled. if you guys have any can’t miss spots in paris, let me know!
…here’s what i’m [fantasy] packing.
01. hell yeah a selfie stick. no shame. ok probably a lot of shame, but it was super hard to get a good eiffel tower shot last time i was in paris (we were literally trying for an hour) so this time i’m coming prepared.
02. i always end up throwing on the same things on vacations, this simple blousey white tank is a perfect easy staple.
03. i don’t know… to me, these sunglasses look hot french girl. am i totally wrong on this?
04. because when in paris, eat lots and lots of croissants.
05. i always prefer a backpack when i’m walking around on trips, love how this doubles as a purse.
06. and when you’re walking, you need some walking shoes.
ok so while i usually wear black, it’s warm outside, so i’m ok wearing lighter colors. well, neutrals. the word color is a stretch, but this will do! here are some neutral faves to complete your summer wardrobe.
gauze dress / backpack / dress / linen tank / cuff / shorts / kimono / sandals
so like, spring is here. yeah yeah i suppose it’s been here, but it seems like the time we should stock up on summer stuff, right? ok. good. i’m glad we’re all in agreement on this. and most importantly… how cute is the swimsuit? it might look horrible on my larger chest but i am buying it anyway because yolo.
with the summer coming — i’m thinking all my clothes are too confining and tight and black. so if i’m buying clothes for the new season, i’m going to focus on loose and lightweight materials. you can kind of see that’s where my head is at with these picks.
as promised, i’m going to start doing semi regular roundups of my favorite items at forever 21!
i want to start this column by saying i am not associated with the store, i just have an addiction. i also want to say that i am aware that there are many options for shopping small, sustainably + ethically. but i enjoy F21 and that’s about it. this blog is about fun + pretty things. and not much more than that. real talk!
it’s wedding season! which means i start looking around obsessively at dresses, because i have a problem. once i wear a fancy dress, i don’t want to wear it ever again. this makes me sound so shallow or normal, but the time in between the time i wear a fancy dress to the next — i usually don’t really like it anymore. so i tend to buy inexpensive ones if i can.
here are some of my favorites, some casual + some more formal.
also, i have a question for you guys. you may or may not know i have a big thing for forever 21. i tried to cut it cold turkey, but i can’t seem to. i was thinking it could be fun to round up the good finds every so often – would you be into that? let me know.
