November Haul + So Many Coats

Image
I’ve been doing a ton of holiday shopping after a long hiatus of not shopping much. Here is this month's haul of things - all coats, shoes, and a bag! My mom actually decided to clear out her closet, which was full of coats that she’s never worn before and I’m lucky enough that they all fit me and are so cute.




And these were all from my mom!





Some of the coats my mom gave me are a little big in the shoulders and throughout but they are still cute as a little over-sized on :)
I did write about finding the Canada Goose Victoria Fusion Fit, which fit me perfectly here, but I unfortunately still did not feel warm enough in it. My coworker recommended Mackge girls to me and when I tried her unisex version on, it didn't look good on me because it was too boxy but then I tried on a version of the popular adult one and I loved it! I don't know how warm it is yet but the website claims it is good for -4 degrees F and it feels promising so far with double zippers with the interior zip…

October Haul + Amelia Island!

This month's haul is all from shopping at the outlets on my trip to Amelia Island/Jacksonville/St. Augustine in Florida and Uniqlo, where I bought some shirts since I was buying some jackets for my mom.




Here are some snaps from the trip:

September Haul + AE Reviews

Image
September's haul are shoes from Toms and Nine West and a top from H&M.




Over the summer, I ordered from American Eagle Outfitters and I’m impressed with how many cute dresses, rompers, and jumpsuits there are at AE that both fit me perfectly and are work appropriate. Also, note I have to sport a headband now because of all the baby hairs coming in after my hair fell out after the pregnancy.



I also love that I got this from A's daycare :)

August Haul + Toronto/Niagara Falls!

Image
August’s purchases were all from AE, Nordstrom, and from my Toronto/Niagara Falls trip. I also decided to keep the Canada Goose Victoria Fusion Fit, which I reviewed in my last post. :)




Here are a few snaps from my Toronto/Niagara Falls trip from August:

July Haul + Canada Goose Victoria Fusion Fit Review

Image
In July, I picked up a pair of high-waisted bikini bottoms since I am in no shape to wear my regular bikinis this summer after baby #2 and also picked up two cute pairs of shorts that were on sale at H&M.

Thanks to a comment from a reader here, I found out the Canada Goose Victoria now comes in Fusion Fit, which I'm excited about since I did like the Victoria best but it didn't come in Fusion Fit, which I wrote about here. I quickly ordered it and actually like it a lot! It's very slimming and fits well, though I wouldn't be able to wear any bulky sweaters underneath, which I am okay with. The sleeves are also a tad long but again, I am okay with that as well since it will keep my hands warm. The hood also isn't overwhelming like it was with many of the other ones I had tried on. I think I've found a keeper! I just hope it proves to be warm enough this coming winter.

June Haul + Tokyo/Bali/Hong Kong Trip!

Image
I didn't purchase anything the month of May and all I purchased in June was what I bought on vacation when I took my once-in-a-lifetime first class airfare to Tokyo, Japan and business class to Bali, Indonesia and Hong Kong. A and I left the kids behind (it was hard but we really needed it!) and had a quick trip to those three places. Below is what I purchased, which was all from Hong Kong, which is my favorite place to shop, except for the bags, which were from Bali.







And here are some snaps from this trip :)
