June Haul + Bug Tips

I'm trying to shop less after that big bag purchase and stick to basics. However, I've still been trying more sandals, dresses, and rompers in anticipation of our first trip out on a plane since 2020!





I continued the Open Edit sandal obsession by trying another Remmy Twist Sandal in gold and some lace-up flat sandals:

As well as a super cute vest:

As always, here's this month's Target finds:

Tops left to right: Striped Short Sleeve Linen T-Shirt, Long Sleeve Boyfriend Fit Linen Button-Down Shirt, Jaguar Color Block Sweatshirt, Patchwork Hooded Sweatshirt


Left to right: Short Sleeve T-Shirt DressEasy Linen Tank DressPuff Short Sleeve DressSleeveless Button-Front Romper, Muscle Tank Dress, Extended Shoulder Dress.

I love switching up the straps of bags to give it a new feel so picked up two cute striped options from Amazon - this is one of them on my new XS Hourglass bag:

Dress: Old Navy Smocked Dress. Bag: Balenciaga XS Hourglass Bag. Strap: Replacement Purse Strap.

I also think I finally found my denim jacket to keep with this one from Amazon - the sleeves are too long but look cute rolled up:

And my sweetest ex-assistant who went to work for Kate Spade gifted me a bag during a recent lunch, which is so cute! I also love how the straps are detachable so I can use my new straps with it too. :)

I needed to meet minimum shipping to repurchase the windbreaker I got from Kohl's since it was 50% off but was too late for price adjustment so picked up some clearance tops:

My mom has also been wanting a knit striped blazer so here are some try-ons from Banana Republic Factory:

Left to right: Sweater Tank, Pique Knit Blazer, Colorblock Midi Dress.

Left to right: Ribbed Tank, Pique Knit Jacket, Utility Knit Jacket

Lastly, I tried some things that caught my eye from Old Navy but didn't work out in person:

Left to right: Girls' Dynamic Fleece Zip Hoodie, Girls' Textured Jogger Knit Sweatpants, Sleeveless V-Neck EveryWear T-shirt 

Here are some handy bug tips now that summer is here:

1.   1. Goodbye Fruit Flies: To get rid of pesky fruit flies, take a small glass, fill it 1/2 full with Apple Cider Vinegar and mix in 2 drops of dish washing liquid. You will find those flies drawn to the cup and gone forever!

2.   2. Get Rid of Ants: Put small piles of cornmeal where you see ants. They eat it, take it 'home,' can't digest it so it kills them. It may take a week or so, especially if it rains, but it works, and you don't have the worry about pets or small children being harmed!

3.  3.  No More Mosquitoes: Place a dryer sheet in your pocket. It will keep the mosquitoes away.
