Purchases Lately

I always forget to share the recent purchases I have made more in real time, so often when I end up sharing they are no longer available. In an attempt to be better about that, I am going to periodically share my recent purchases on here that I truly love and would recommend. Not everything I buy is a win, so I like to give reviews on pieces I link or add to my blog round ups when I actually buy them for myself. Lately I have been purchasing less home pieces and more beauty and closet staples to use time and time again.

Handmade Wool Coat

I had been on the hunt for a classic black coat for a while, so when I finally found this piece for under $250, I was elated – bonus it is currently 30% off with code EXTRA30. Since it doesn’t get extremely cold here, I love a lighter weight unlined coat that is perfect for layering with sweaters. This is SO soft and feels extremely well made. I love the oversized look – I am 5’4″ and went with a small, but probably could have done an XS for less of a boxy fit. Even though it has been warm I have been wearing this on early morning errand runs over sweats and can’t get enough!

Pumpkin Spice Candle

Every fall, I become like a seasonal candle tester – trying out new scents wherever I can get my hands on them. Pumpkin is always one of those hit or major miss scents, so I was very pleased when I tried this budget friendly Target pillar. The scent is super light and more of a spice than artificially sweet pumpkin. Orange isn’t typically my color, but I actually love this in a hurricane and the pretty ribbed design is great. Many of my other favorites are linked in this post.

Mother Denim

Another favorite purchase that is now on sale! The Mother Denim Insider Crop is my go to jean. I now have these in four or five different washes because they are so comfortable and flattering. This medium wash looks really nice dressed up or down and has the right amount of stretch!

Westman Atelier Foundation Stick

I love Westman Atelier products, but I was waiting until I finished my previous foundation to go for this. I honestly wish I didn’t wait so long because this is so much better. It is incredibly easy to layer and since I tend to like lighter coverage, this feels like a second skin that somehow lasts. I love layering it with her bronzer and cream blush.

Black Blazer

Much like my hunt for the perfect black coat, I had the hardest time finding a black blazer that I liked. I wanted something more on the causal side that didn’t feel like a suit jacket and because I am busty I am so particular on cut. Right when I tried this on, I was impressed with the comfort level. The cropped arm, single button and classic lapel made this feel perfect to pair with a t shirt or over a slip dress.

 DÔEN Tablecloth

So technically this is on my wishlist, but I have not purchased a single piece from DÔEN that I didn’t love. I have yet to buy something from their home collection and I keep coming back to this stunning tablecloth that would be pretty year round. The trim and pattern combination is just so good!
