2019 Q2 Shopping Log

Trying to switch things up a little here when it comes to shopping logs.

April 2019

I have confessed my sin regarding this purchase on this post. Still very much happy about this. As for someone who dresses casually about 11 times out of 10, I feel like these espadrilles elevate my look without making me feel uncomfortable.

I brought these shoes to my vacation back home and I wore them quite a bit. More than I expected so safe to say that it was a smart purchase.

May 2019

The month when I finally bought my prescription sunglasses from Ace & Tate. I did not go with the one I mentioned on my wishlist post. But it doesn’t matter now because I returned the pair anyway. The new prescription gave me headache and the frame is just too wide and kept on slipping off of my face. I guess I just have to stick with covering my eyes with my hand when it’s too bright outside.

Other than that, I did not buy anything else in May.

June 2019

Prior to my holiday in Indonesia, I panicked buy some clothes to wear during my trip. I find some people there dress less casually than people here and sometimes a t-shirt is not ‘fancy’ enough. So I got myself two cotton shirts from Zara kids. It took me so long to finally took off the tags and wear them though but I’m glad that I did. They’re basic but not boring.

I also bought a new dress to wear when we have lunch/dinner at hotels. My parents tend to do stuff like that and in fact we went to 2 different hotels this year. I wore the dress for one of the trips and I felt really well-dressed. Oh by the way, the dress is from Sissy Boy.

So that’s a wrap for my Q2 shopping log. I guess I’m going to continue with merging a few months together for simplicity.

March 2019 Shopping

Petit Bateau white tank

If there’s one thing people in Brabant are excited about, you can bet your ass it’s carnival. This thing runs from Friday until Tuesday where people just dress up in costumes and drink from dawn to dusk. Halloween, but not creepy. Halloween, but five freaking days. I do tend to join the festivities at the office though. So I had to buy stuff to dress up according to our theme of the year. This year we’re doing Britney Spears. And I went as Britney from “Me Against the Music” music video. Funnily enough, only a white tank top is what’s missing from my ensemble hahaha so I got this to perfect my outfit.

Cashmere turtle neck sweater

Do you believe me if I say I got bullied by Deo to buy the sweater? Hahaha. It’s hard to believe, I know. I was so stubborn to not spend money on shopping during our Copenhagen trip. But the deal was too good to be true. Maybe you remember when I posted that I’m slowly rebuilding my cashmere collection. And I can’t deny that this is a really good addition. I love the neckline so much. For about €40.00 I feel like I can do worse. It’s annoying to admit to him that he’s right about this purchase haha.

H&M sweater

The color of this sweater shouts spring to me. It’s actually quite more green/mint irl. And since I live in this kind of sweater, I really don’t mind stocking up. Hoodies and sweaters are what made up my uniform. The material is soft enough to not have to wear anything underneath. I’m happy I branch out of my neutral zone.

G-Star RAW cargo pants

Last week Deo told me to kick him if he buys another top instead of pants. So I also told him please kick me if I buy another pair of pants instead of tops. But guess what, we went shopping and he bought himself another hoodie whilst I purchased myself these cargo pants. I’ve been looking for a pair though but I thought I had my eye set on the Daily Paper pair. However, their branding on the pants is just too obnoxious. Also I scored these pants for half off.

So yea, March is the month when I shop the most so far. Hopefully April will chill out a bit. But it’s my birthday month so I’m not too optimistic about not treating myself hahaha.

February 2019 Shopping

Not going to lie, the month of February was a very expensive month. Back in 2017, I used to own a small blue cross body bag from Celine. The bag has served me well in terms of functionality. However, the color doesn’t really vibe with me. I wasn’t sure what drove me to purchase the bag in the first place. So I sold the bag and planned to replace it with its black version. It took me about a year to finally replace the said bag. So in February, I bought myself a new Celine bag. Not an affordable purchase by any means, but it’s an item that I know I will use and very much functional for my lifestyle.

Other than the bag, I also bought a new cashmere sweater from H&M. After finding out that three of my cashmere sweaters have developed unreasonable sized holes on them. I just had to replace at least one because it got so cold. Unfortunately I broke my no online shopping rule for 2019 because shopping in store is just a nightmare. How do you even find stuff anymore? Also H&M has this Premium Quality line that they just don’t sell in store. Not to mention, shopping online tends to be cheaper.

Onto the last item was a very much needed pair of 20 denier tights. Bought this also from H&M (in store) since it was needed for a party that I attended. I did not take more than 5 minutes to think about this purchase because I have had enough thinking too much about clothes.
