On Thursday I will be publishing one of my longest posts ever and it is one I have been working on for weeks, how to start a blog. In writing this I have taken a look back at the evolution of Sparkles and Shoes over the last three years and came across a series I used to do eons ago, my monthly purchases (October 2012, November 2012, and January 2013). These posts are fun to critique now to see how much my photography and blog aesthetics have improved, but they also reminded me of the fun I had in putting them together so, monthly purchase recaps, welcome back.
Considering that I have shifted my shopping philosophy to one of quality items over quantity, June was a big shopping month for me. There were some things I actually needed, like the new workout tank, and others items that were just nice additions to my wardrobe. This month I have purchased the following items and note, the prices below are what I paid and online they might differ:
Roxy Shore Thing Printed Dress
Tory Burch Thea Zip Continental Wallet in Silver
And I thought about not including these items, but compared to my purchases two years ago I would like to think they add an element of maturity, thank you notes via snail mail are always a good idea and thick socks that sit well above my ankle? Well, those have proven essential on my fitness journey.
These four items of clothing, pair of shoes, and two assorted items were great additions for June and look for a new post in this series at the end of next month to see what I pick up in the month of July! I hope everyone had a great month, and believe it or not, great first half of 2015!
