things i love lately

March 2, 2016

Before I went on my spending freeze for Lent, I acquired a few new things that I’m really loving, so today I want to share those with you, if you’re curious!

things i love lately

Banana Republic Margeaux sunglasses – I had a gift card to BR but none of the clothes were fitting me right. On a whim I tried on these sunglasses and they fit me perfectly. I have a hard time finding sunglasses that aren’t too tight or too loose, and that don’t leave marks on my nose. These feel great and look classic.

Threshold percale sheet set – I am so glad I discovered percale sheets. They are crisp and cool (a big deal if you live in Houston) but at the same time soft and cozy. In my experience (we have this same set in the kids’ room in the blue dots) they stay brighter and cleaner longer. This set found at Target is super affordable, too.

Threshold basket – Another Target find that I almost bought several times before I finally pulled the trigger. We’ve been using it for dirty towels in our bedroom and it looks pretty doing that job. :)

Banana Republic cubic zirconia round stud earring – These are the perfect everyday earrings. I love wearing studs, and these feel really solid, not like you might lose the backing to them at any moment (not that that’s happened to me with, oh, every other pair of earrings I’ve owned). I chose cubic zirconia because they go with silver or gold jewelry, and I think they make even my scrubs look a little classier. ;)

Soma vanishing edge underwear – This is possibly awkward, but these underwear are amazing and I can’t not share with you. They are soft, comfy, and stay in place due to a plastic lining on the edge. I bought eight – half in black, half in nude – and I’m good to go.

Margaret M Emer high waisted trousers – I don’t have a photo or a direct link to these because I got them through Stitch Fix. The link here goes to the Google page where you can see a ton of pictures and reviews. I don’t have an office job and I don’t get dressed up much, but these can be dressed down easily and they are perfect on the days where I have meetings.

I’d love to hear what you’re loving lately!

    From JB:

    Love this post :) and thanks for the pants recommendation! I’m loving stitch fix right now, even though I want ALL of the things my stylist sends. My obsession right now: Rodan & Fields skin care!

    From Nicole S.:

    I honestly love when people share underwear they love! It can be hard to choose, so I’m always up for recommendations! Love that basket. I may have to upgrade from my plastic college dorm laundry basket here soon… ;)

    From Kathleen:

    It was a little awkward when I was pulling a picture of the underwear in the cafe I was working in, but I persevered for my fellow women! ;)

    From Nora:

    Nothing wrong with finding and loving a good pair of underwear! I need to get some new ones now that my freezing spend is over! I love DKNY ones that are invisible/vanishing because a) no panty lines b) so comfortable and c) I forget they are there. I get them at Nordstrom Rack for decent prices so that may be on the list/agenda for this weekend!
