{recap} Wardrobe Update - September

  Monday, September 30, 2019 at 7:30 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,,, 
Easing back into the blog after getting back from our honeymoon with my September wardrobe update.  I was gone half the month on our honeymoon so it was pretty easy to not shop - apart from the couple things on my list to buy in Europe.  Luckily I had a surge in blog revenue before we left so that covered what I bought on the trip!

I only intended to buy one pair of Ancient Greek Sandals on my trip but ended up with 2. I bought the first pair in Santorini for 30% off (WOO!) and still had to visit the new Ancient Greek Sandals flagship store in Athens and ended up with a pair there too. But this is the only actual AGS dedicated store so how could I not?  The first pair is part of their yearly limited edition collaboration. This year it was with GAS Bijoux so the sandals have cute little charms on them! The second pair is totally different from what I usually buy because they're slides instead of ones with clasps (I prefer those for walking)

I almost broke down and bought my Gucci Marmont purse in Florence because they had the color I want still in stock (no other stores did.) But I don't have enough saved up yet so I'll keep saving and buy it used once I can. To heal the pain I bought a cute little leather purse at one of those leather shops. Probably not the best quality but it's adorable!
