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

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!

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

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!

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 :)

April Haul + Cartier Santos-Dumont Watch

It's been very quiet here because of my return to work from maternity leave and trying to juggle work and a newborn baby along with a demanding toddler. Then there were the vacations, birthday parties, and baby showers to plan and attend so there will be four consecutive posts showing what I purchased these last few months.

All I purchased in April was a top and dress from Forever 21 since it was closing down and had an amazing clearance sale.

Though I didn't purchase anything in the month of May, I did pick out my 10 year work gift, which had to be a watch. I got the newly released Cartier Santos-Dumont Watch in small 19K pink gold and steel with black leather and though I'm not used to wearing a watch, I love it! :)

March Haul + Target Dresses

Target has so many pretty dresses, which are perfect for the Spring weather we have now. It seems winter is finally over and pleasant weather is here. :)

Out of all the ones I bought, I only decided to keep one but they were all really cute - I wish I had more space in my closet! The material of the two striped one and the black one are definitely wrinkle-prone as you can see in the photos but I liked the neutral stripes enough to keep it.
