May Purchases

The month of May was a great month for traveling and shopping while ringing in the spring season. I've been hunting down perfect sandals, dresses, and swimwear for the coming I just gotta wait for the Rocky Mountain weather to cooperate! We still have visible snow and you can still ski at one of the local resorts! Madness! Either way, I'm 100% prepared for warmer temperatures and sunshine all day, everyday! 

While I was at home in Ohio, my mom gave me her $65 credit to DSW she received and a $10 coupon. I was able to find the black Steve Madden sandals and the gold Calvin Klein sandals on super sale and also picked up a cute tan cross body bag (I can't seem to find it on their online shop anywhere though). Now I'm all set for summer fun!

I don't normally shop at Forever 21, but I do really like their accessories section. I found this dainty tooth pendant necklace while shopping around Houston. While it is dainty, I've found that it adds just a touch of edge to any outfit.

You know on those monthly subscriptions there's normally a 'skip the month' option? Well, I typically utilize that every.single.month. I accidently forgot to hit that button on my ShoeDazzle subscription, and not wanting to call their customer service line (I love ShoeDazzle, but their customer service is horrendous) I just decided to stick it out and see if I could apply the $39.95 credit during a sale event. Low and behold, a few days later, I received a $20 off coupon in my inbox. I picked out the Jaf Weekender Bag (now sold out) and the Embroidered Cami Dress in navy. The weekender bag is larger than I expected but seems of good quality and I can't wait to take it on my next trip. I love the embroidery on the dress. I ordered it in size small and it seems to run a little big but it still works and fits well. I kind of want to order it in white now, too...

Over Memorial Day weekend, Adore Me had one of their buy one get one free sales and I just had to take advantage. I LOVE Adore Me. I  cannot express that enough. Since joining their subscription, my bra collection has multiplied but I don't even care. Their bras fit perfect, are comfortable, and are so stylish! I ordered Lucia Bra Set in red and the Fannie Swimsuit in lavender (previously purchased the Dana Swimsuit, which I LOVE).

All in all, I picked up 7 items for a little less than $120. Not too bad, I'd say!

What fun items did you pick up this past month?

With Love,


  1. Great choices! I really love the dress and the weekender bag. Super cute! Have a great weekend!


  2. Congrats on those awesome purchases! I especially love the necklace and bag! Both will be beautiful staples for this summer :)

  3. How did I not know you're an Adore Me fan!? I look at their site daily when I get their email and have been too nervous to buy because I wasn't convinced the quality was going to be any good. I think you just convinced me to pull the trigger after our next pay check
