{recap} Wardrobe Update - January

A new year, a fresh wardrobe update. I did pretty well last year thanks to a bunch of Shopbop gift cards through my partnership with them from the end of 2019 and the first couple months of 2020. That partnership was paused because of the virus and I don't know if/when it will come back but I do still have some gift cards to spend! Hopefully that means I won't be spending as much of my "real" money.


I wasn't planning on making any purchases this month but my blog friend of over 10 years, Jamie-Lee of Mademoiselle, finally launched her clothing line - mīere the label! It's a children's line but she also made a few sweaters for mom's to match their little ones! Obviously I had to buy one of the women's sweaters to 1. Support a friend and 2. Because they're going to be a perfect basic!


It won't arrive until next month, but I'll be sure to do a post to let you all know what I think! But with Jamie behind it I know it will be perfect. She is obsessed with finding perfect basics so I have no doubt in her ability to create her own line.


Then the next day I got an eBay notification that a pair of mules I've been following for over a year were discounted heavily down to $26 so I pounced (pun intended) on those bad boys! They're - new in box! - half tiger print and half cheetah print mules by Splendid. I had them on my Shopbop wishlist for a long time but they never got cheap enough for me to buy them (once they did my size was sold out.)

  1. I really like that red knit, I hope you love it when it arrives! It would look perfect with your new shoes too! :)

    I ended up buying more than I expected in the boxing day sales and I just picked up a couple more tees this week, I seem to have a problem continually buying more tees! I have been wearing them almost non-stop lately!

    Hope that you are having a good weekend :) Another hot one here, we had to leave the park as it was just too warm!

  2. Love your new shoes!

  3. The mules were a steal, glad you snapped them up!
    Wish I were as good as you, but I'm a shopping trainwreck these days.
