June Buys

A relatively restrained month on the shopping front. This Capsule Wardrobe living is helping me contain my shopping habits if nothing else. Here is what I bought in the month of June...

Some sale buys from & Other Stories. Don't you just love it when the items you have been patiently waiting to buy eventually go on sale. These two midi dresses were bought with a glimpse of summer in mind. Basic, standard and very comfortable and cool to wear. I also bought a whole load of other sale buys but most of it I returned, these two woolly jumpers though I really love and know they will get a lot of wear come the Autumn and Winter. I have even been wearing them this month already, instead of a coat when the weather turns cooler. You can see the blue dress and sweater here.

I also hunted high and low for a summer beach cover up. I wanted a natural cotton fabric, knowing it would be much cooler than polyester, which seems to be all you can buy these days. Beach cover.com came up on a Google search after I had been looking for weeks at the usual places, and at a really good price too. I can't wait to wear it when I go on holiday in a few weeks.

Also last month was my Everlane order that you have already seen. These too I think I will get a lot of wear out of in the cooler months, as layering pieces under woollens. But in the meantime, natural silk is very cool to wear when the temperature is warmer.

  1. These are gorgeous pieces Paula. I need to show a bit more restraint when it comes to shopping these days but it's definitely about buying lovely classic pieces you can layer and wear year round - those are my favourite pieces for sure!
