Stuff I Want To Add To Cart
The Internet is tempting me hard this week.
I’m currently on a shopping diet, but I have half a dozen Safari tabs open on my iPhone with things I want to buy. Here’s a quick rundown…
BAGGU just announced a collection with Laura Ashley, the iconic brand that splashed bold floral prints across our childhood bedrooms and wardrobes, and it’s really scratching a nostalgia itch for me. Particularly this mini puffer tote with clusters of flowers floating on cheery gingham. It looks just like a comforter I had on my daybed as a kid. (The packable sun hat is also adorable!)
I absolutely do not need another cream blush in my makeup collection, but Merit’s Flush Balm is one of my favorite swipe-and-go formulas for minimal “clean” makeup days. They released four new seasonal shades, and it took true willpower to pass on this chic set of minis.
These orange sherbet sneakers are still sitting in my Amazon cart. I asked in an IG poll if I should tap ‘buy now’ and 87% of y’all said yes. I like the vintage style, and think they’ll be a fun pop of color for easy neutral spring/summer outfits.
Alice + Olivia’s spring 2023 denim collection sparks all the joy. Grownup versions of my beloved wide-leg skater jeans + a jacket made of giant pom poms?! The jacket is out of stock all over the Internet, and it’s a good thing; I can’t throw down a car payment on novelty outerwear. I will, however, stalk The Real Real to try to score one secondhand.
A Mansur Gavriel bucket bag has been on my wish list since the dawn of Pinterest, and at this very moment there’s a white croc embossed mini bucket bag for 30% off in their spring sale. I never thought I’d want a white leather handbag, but I can’t stop imagining summer outfits with this slung over my shoulder.
And finally, Dermstore is having a beauty refresh sale, featuring popular brands at up to 20% off. If you need to update your skin care or makeup stash, now’s the time. You can shop my top shelf picks from the sale here.
