{recap} Wardrobe Update - July

  Monday, July 31, 2017 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,,,,,,, 
Happy Monday! Here's my wardrobe update for July! Technically two of the items were bought in June but I bought them before I went on a trip and didn't know if I would be keeping them. It was July by the time I got to try them on.

I was also super bad and bought a new camera on Amazon Prime day. I got the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000. So there goes $500. But now I don't have to be nervous about using my Dad's Nikon anymore and can have a better camera on vacations. I don't take his Nikon because I'm afraid it will break on the plane and it's a bit too large to carry around when I sight-see. But this new camera should be a good mix between my small Nikon and my Dad's DSLR.

Then I did a few sponsored posts and instead of being responsible and using the money for my camera I bought one more thing in the Net-a-Porter sale, haha! Oh was an extra 20% off thanks to their Sale Must Have discount and it's a basic.

I almost made it the rest of the month but Lydia and I decided to check out Roundabout's clearance sale on Saturday and I walked out with a cashmere sweater and Proenza Schouler shorts. I had actually posted about the shorts on here back in June 2011, so it was fate!
