What I Bought Wednesday

Hey there - happy hump day!

How is your week going?? I'm hoping that even if it's not been the best week so far, there have been moments of good thrown in. Seriously, if you are having a crappy week, think back to the last couple of days and pull a positive thought or moment out of each day.

My positive moment on Monday was a few hours spent watching my trashy reality TV (RHOC & Bachelorette!). My positive moment yesterday was some extra shopping time gifted as a result of a cancelled deposition that left me stranded in the suburbs with nothing else to do!

So, since I finally got the shopping done that I have been talking about for ages, I am going to do a "What I Bought Wednesday" post for you, vacation style.

I have mentioned on here that I have a trip to Costa Rica coming up. I feel like this is a particularly hard trip to pack for. What I need is a lot of active wear, things that can get wet and dry quickly, and easy breezy outfits for dinners at night.

First Stop: Lululemon

I bought the above top in the "Heathered Pistachio" color (shown) and you need to know that the color is so much better in person. It actually has some hints of blue mixed in (it's not a completely solid green like it looks), which makes it more unique. I would size up in this shirt so it is not skin tight on your midsection and in the arms.

Super boring, I know, but it's my favorite lulu tank and I didn't have it in black yet. I was told they were discontinuing this tank months ago. It's still there and coming out in new colors. So, I think we have put that rumor to bed. This fits true to size.

I am super picky about shorts. I hate wearing shorts that ride up and I also feel like all shorts are super short right now. I loved these shorts because you get extra room in the legs and they are a good length. I tried on SEVERAL different styles at the store and these were my favorite. I went a size up in these shorts (Ace Spot Lullaby Black) which may have helped with the more comfortable fit.

I got this top for cooler mornings and nights. This top fits true to size.

Second Stop: Express

I was so happy with my outfit find at Express. I can't wait to wear this outfit out to dinner on a hot night in Costa Rica!

I bought this top in Black...

To wear with these shorts...

I swear the shorts do not look as diaper-ish in person. The model has them up super high. They actually hit right below the belly button on me and they are so soft. Like buttah! :) Only $29.90 right now. I bought both the top and the shorts in a Medium.

Third Stop: Nordstrom

I needed a different kind of bra to go under a dress I just got for a wedding and this one was perfect. I actually think I will wear it under that Trapeze tank from Express too. It is not as substantial as it looks in the above picture (I think she just has the straps hiked up super high). It is so comfortable, you barely notice you have it on. At $18.00 I was sold. 

So I almost bought this romper and now I am kicking myself that I didn't get it! How CUTE is it? Do I need to run back and get it?!?!? Gahhhhh!! I was a little doubtful because the you can't really wear a bra easily with it, but it does have those built in cups. I felt that it ran super small if you are interesting in picking one up! 

So, those were my finds! What is your favorite?! Mine is probably the Express outfit because it is something so different for me and I cannot wait to wear it on vacation! 

Until next time!
