I was supposed to be on a shopping ban through mid July but after about two weeks I gave up. Also the number one motivation for my ban was because I was supposed to be saving up for a trip to Chicago but we decided not to go anymore so I just threw the ban out the window. So of course in my typical shopping fashion, here are my buys for the month of July. I had to break up the haul into two parts, fashion & beauty. First up is Fashion and Jewelry.
I picked up this lace type top from a local boutique
I’ve actually been looking for more of a white damask top but everytime I find one it’s a cropped style so I went with this one because it doesn’t quite look like lace so its still nice and summery.
And that’s it for the fashion part of the haul. It seems like a lot but I got almost all of it on sale or for really good prices!
I’ve also been collecting outfit and look pictures on my phone for the month of July. I don’t really like to do collective look posts like this but I’ve discovered it’s harder to blog from my phone than I thought. I’ll try to remember what I wore in each set.
This past weekend was my boyfriends birthday so we ate a lot! But more on that later. We planned a full day out at the zoo and lake.
We woke up early to go the zoo to beat the rush and I’m so glad we did! I’ve never been to this zoo before so I was really excited to see what the hype was all about. It cost us $42 to get in which is probably why I’ve never been there before. My normal zoo is free.
We grabbed breakfast at MCDs which I hadn’t done in the longest time. It felt like a mini road trip eating mcd breakfast and driving out there with the wind in my hair!
Here’s what I wore.
top f21 | shorts AE | shoes LA | bag h&m
On my face I used all waterproof/swim stuff so that it wont melt off or come off after swimming later. I used loreal volumnous, etude waterproof liner, stila lip stain, stila bronzing gel.
Last week I dyed my hair but it didn’t turn out light enough so I’m going to try again this week. Here’s a shot of it, you can’t tell so well.
After it didn’t work out I did some googling and found this one which I will be using this week.
It’s supposed to be high lift so it should get my hair a lot lighter.
Last week there were two major storms and a lot of fallen trees. Here’s one I saw on my way to work.
That’s not even the worst cause it was in someone’s yard. The worst are the ones on the street that you can’t drive around.
This weekend I was out all weekend and so I did get into the spirit of snapping shots but I did forget to do an outfit post. I got a lot of food pictures though!
First we tried this newish burger chain called five guys.
It reminded me a lot of in and out because the kitchen is open and you can see what’s going on. The menu is also a non nonsense one and fairly basic. The difference is that it doesn’t taste as good as in and out. I feel like in and out burgers are very crisp and not greasy. These are juicy but not super fresh or great tasting.
I also went french toast crazy this week.
This this Saturday I spent all day at my boyfriends basketball tournament.
And finally some arm candy and wild shoes!
