Friday Favorites: Recent Purchases I Love

Rothys Loafers: I’ve been looking for a comfortable pair of loafers but I hate buying shoes online without trying them on first. I finally took a chance when a coworker sent me a referral that gave me $20 off (I’m happy to send you one if you want to give these a try). These shoes are so comfortable that I’ve worn them every day since they arrived in the mail earlier this week. I have no doubt these will be my go-to shoes on out upcoming trip to the UK & Ireland. Other awesome perks of these shoes: they are machine washable and made out of recycled water bottles.

 

 

Born Derby Shoes: Speaking of our upcoming trip, I wanted a nicer shoe I could wear to dress up an casual outfit but that would also be comfortable enough to walk around and sightsee in. A lot of travel blogs I read recommended oxfords so I went on a hunt for a comfortable pair. These shoes have a really padded sole that will make being on my feet all day much easier and they look great with rolled up jeans, ankle pants, and even some dresses.

 

 

Trench Rain Coat: I’ve wanted a nice trench coat for a while, but since I can’t rationalize buying a Burberry trench, I went on the hunt and found this more affordable option. It has a great fit and has done a great job of keeping me dry so far.

 

 

Honorable mention is this trench that is a little shorter and that I found at Nordstrom Rack. It’s also less expensive.

 

 

Milani Color Statement Lipstick in Naturally Chic: I’m always on the hunt for the perfect pink lipstick and this shade is a winner. It’s fun and flirty but still neutral enough for everyday wear.

 

 

Colour Pop Mar Palette: I’ve wanted to get braver with my eyeshadow for a long time. I usually stick to basic neutral shades but when I saw this palette I fell in love. I ordered it in the hopes that it could push me outside my comfort zone. Unfortunately, I honestly haven’t tried out the bolder colors yet, but I’m loving the neutrals while I work up the courage.

My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

My DIY Gilmore Girls Shirts

 

Today I am heading up to my sister’s house for the week and wanted to surprise her with a Gilmore Girls themed shirt since we are both really excited to watch the new episodes. I’d looked for shirts to buy online but some of the nicer ones were expensive, and I figured I could try to make the shirts myself instead. I’d seen a tutorial on how to screen print at home using a vinyl cutter and had been wanting to give it a try.
