My Favorite August Purchases

Happy Thursday! Today, I'm narrowing down some of my favorite purchases from the month of August here on the blog. Being a life and style blogger, I definitely purchase more items in a month than I would if I wasn't running a blog. So, I wanted to share what I purchased last month that I really think is worth your money because I've used it first hand and I can honestly report back on the quality/style/fit of these items. 

During the month of August, it's still definitely summer weather but fall is on the horizon so buying things can sometimes be tricky. You don't want to buy something that you won't get a lot of use out of but it's also hard to buy a sweater when it's ninety degrees out! So for me, I buy items that I can wear now and later. Everything I'm sharing in today's list of favorites are things that I am currently wearing but that I also plan to wear later. I love buying items that I can get a lot of use out of! Also, I always try to buy items that work together. That's why I love neutrals so much! They always work together and creating outfits is a lot more simple when you work within a similar color palette. I'm all about simplicity while still remaining put together (and comfortable, of course)!

L E O P A R D  M U L E S | I bought a pair of cheap leopard mules last fall and I literally wore them out so I felt good investing in a good quality pair. This pair is so beautiful! I have already worn them with dresses and shorts but they will also be so perfect with skinny jeans in the fall. They run just a little small so definitely size up a half size for the best fit.

L A C E  T O P | I'm pretty sure I have worn this top every time it was clean again! It's so pretty! It does require a cami underneath. I have worn it with shorts, a skirt, and underneath my overalls. It will transition into fall perfectly layered with a utility jacket! The fit is true to size.

D I S T R E S S E D  D E N I M | I just got these jeans last week and I've already worn them twice. They are a high rise mom jean and the denim is stiff, so it does require breaking in. I bought my regular size and they were definitely snug when I put them on but they get even better with wear! I really love a true denim. These jeans suck you in and instantly make you look slimmer! I also really love the unique distressing on this pair.

L A C E  T R I M  C A M I | I wore this cami the same day it came in the mail and again a week later. It's the perfect layering piece! I loved it under a camo jacket but it would also be great on it's own or with a cozy cardigan during the fall. The fit is true to size and even prettier in person!

S U N G L A S S E S | I was really loving the round Ray Bans but I wasn't loving the price tag at all. I have a really bad habit of loosing, scratching, or breaking my sunglasses so I don't usually spend a ton of money on them. I found this great pair for $15 and I love them! The exact look I was going for at a fraction of the price.

M O C K  N E C K  T A N K | This $10 tank was worth every penny! I always love black and white stripes so this tank caught my eye as soon as I saw it in the store. The quality is also amazing for the super low price tag. I love it with high rise denim since it is a shorter tank (but not cropped at all). The fit is true to size and it's definitely a must have.

N E C K L A C E | This pendant necklace has been one of my most worn pieces of jewelry this month. I love that it makes a statement without being too overpowering. It also pretty much goes with everything! I love wearing it with a basic tee to make the outfit more fun.

L A C E  S W I N G  D R E S S | I have been hunting for a dress like this for so long. Honestly, it was after I saw Joanna Gaines wearing something similar on an old episode of Fixer Upper. She has a similar tunic/dress with skinny jeans and I just loved the look! So of course, I'm planning to style it with jeans and heels when it cools off. I love it and it's a bargain, too!
