John and I are heading to Seattle at the end of May for a week, and I am so excited. It’s a city I’ve always wanted to visit, and I’m so glad we’re getting the chance to go! As with any trip, I desperately want to go on a shopping spree beforehand to make sure I have everything I’ll need. I’m trying to hold back, but no one can stop me from creating a wishlist! (Well, I bought two things on this list already. Oops.)
Old Navy Mid-Rise Rockstar Skinny Jeans
I have the hardest time finding jeans that fit well, and these are perfect. Thank God they’re affordable. I own one pair, but I’d like to grab one or two more before we leave. My favorite part about them is that they don’t stretch out throughout the day (especially around the knees) like most cheap skinnies do.
Forever 21 Square Frame Sunglasses
Because you can never have too many sunglasses.
Mophie Juice Pack Air for iPhone 6
Being out on the town from sun-up to sun-down = dead phone. I need juice for all my Instagrammin’, people!
Toms Del Rey Sneakers
I just ordered these. They’re a little expensive, but as they say, you should always invest in the things under you: shoes, tires, and mattresses. All I have in the way of comfy shoes is a grungy pair of running sneakers, but I wanted a cute pair to wear on days when we’ll be walking all day, because flats and sandals kill, guys. As my dad says, “flip flops are the downfall of America.” -_-
Forever 21 Multi-Compartment Crossbody
I’d love this in black. I saw it in store today and I’m kicking myself for not grabbing it because you know Forever 21 products disappears in two seconds. The reviews are great, it seemed super roomy but not too big, and I love a crossbody so I can have both hands free for frolicking through the streets of Seattle.
Alba Botanica Very Emollient Facial Sunscreen SPF 30
I just found this at TJ Maxx last week. I’ve been using a moisturizer with SPF, but I want to step up my skincare game and use a stronger SPF every day. This skin is gonna be wrinkle-free forevah. I’ve been layering this over my face lotion and it’s great! Non-greasy, absorbs quickly, doesn’t irritate, and it does not have that weird sunscreen smell. My TJ Maxx has a ton of Alba and Yes To products right now, so stop in if you’re looking for some! I found this for $6.
Timex Easy Reader Leather Strap Watch
Yes, real leather, but I’m shopping around for an alternative. But I want it to look just like this! Please send me your recommendations.
Seattle friends, please tell me all about your favorite food and fun in the city!
