Window Shopping

One good thing about spending so much time at home is that I don’t really have a need to buy things. There has been no special work event to dress up for, no jeans that have started falling apart from being worn so much and no vacation that needs a new swimsuit.

I mean, I still buy things… but the ‘reasons’ for buying things have been scarce. Now I pretty much just buy comfy sweaters and joggers for my work-from-home lewks.

So, I thought it would be fun to visit a bunch of my former favorite websites. I mean, they probably miss me by now!

Let’s pretend together and do a little window shopping…

What I would buy if I were going on vacation and wanted something pretty to wear to dinner:


Anthropologie Farm Rio Soleil Embroidered Maxi Dress, $218

Although I am just pretending, even in my pretend world I would need to wear a bra with this dress. Or a bikini top – even though I’m not at the point where I’d wear a bikini top in public, I feel like it could totally work under this sundress. Or a comfy exercise bra with a super strappy back would be fun too. This dress is so pretty and I love the little ruffles at the bottom and I’d totally feel like an absolute princess wearing this on a vacation date night. Oh and even ‘dream Joules’ would wait until this dress went on sale.

A new top that I would wear with jeans to go and spend the weekend at my besties house:


Anthropologie Tiger Love Graphic Sweatshirt, $78

I mean, come on… how cute is this sweatshirt?! It’s perfect for layering over a tee shirt to escape to my besties house for the weekend. It can go from antique stores, to thrift stores, out to drinks where we intend to just have a drink and an appetizer, but then end up closing the place down. I actually have a couple Good HYOUman sweatshirts that I’ve gotten off Poshmark and they are the perfect combo of slouchy and lightweight, so I’ll be keeping this one on my radar for any upcoming sales!

A swimsuit that looks adorable for jetting away to an AirB&B in Florida:


Boden Kefalonia Swimsuit in Fire Colourblock, $98

I love Boden swimsuits so much. Not only are they made super well, but they somehow design them to be sexy while still holding your butt in. This one with the colorblocking is so cool and effortless and while I wouldn’t typically go for red, I’m thinking that this would clash wonderfully with my orange hair. Especially when topped with a pair of distressed jean shorts on a walk to a private beach on a beautiful 85-degree sunny day. Sigh.

Shoes that are so cute that I’d want to leave the house to show them off:


Modcloth True to Platform Leather Clog, $120

There is a woman I follow on Instagram and she wears the most gorgeous pair of Hasbeen Swedish clogs. I saw this mustard yellow pair on Modcloth and I can’t help but ignore the fact that I haven’t walked in heels for over a year. I mean, how CUTE would these looks with basically every dress, skirt or jeans ever made?! They are like literally walking on sunshine and I would need to retrain myself not to look like a baby deer trying to walk in stilts in order to wear them proudly.

It’s probably good that I’m stuck at home for awhile longer. Returning to real life is starting to look a little expensive!

One thought on “Window Shopping”

  1. Oh, that was fun! I think that swimsuit deserves a very ritzy vacation. I have a pair of similar dhoes, but not in that great color. I have not worn them for a year and a half! I have a never been used purse that is just sitting around on a chair in the corner. She really wants to go out, I can tell. Some day…
    We should do this shopping again, it was fun.
