With the official start of fall around the corner, I thought I’d give a proper goodbye to the heat by sharing the best summer purchases I’ve made this year.
Pavé Wide Hinge Huggie Earrings – For just under $30, these lightweight huggie earrings add the perfect amount of sparkle to my work and play outfits all summer!
I got the rose gold pair and have found myself reaching for them on a daily basis. They’re affordable yet look expensive!
DL1961 x Marianna Hewitt Instasculpt Farrow High Waist Ankle Coated Skinny Jeans – I purchased my first-ever designer jeans seven years ago from DL1961 and still have them. They’re that good. So, when Marianna’s collab with them dropped, I had to get myself another pair!
I hadn’t purchased new jeans in several years because I’ve had a hard time finding a flattering pair for my “new legs” I’ve gained. Ladies, if you have pretty thick thighs from lifting like I do, you won’t be disappointed! I know the description says ‘skinny jeans’. However, these skinny jeans are made for women who work out! Warning, you will be seeing me style these jeans over and over again this fall and winter. #SorryNotSorry
The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution – As a sufferer of milia, I’ve been on the search for the perfect peel. However, purchasing skincare products to test can get expensive so I decided to give The Ordinary a try. I’ve only used this peel twice and I’m LOVING the results so far! Full glowing review (see what I did there?) coming next month so stay tuned!
Neulash Lash Enhancing Serum – Back in 2017, I shared a small review of my experience with this lash serum. And since I missed it while it was on sale last year, it was the first thing I nabbed for myself when the sale came back this year.
If you don’t want to do lash extensions or wear falsies, try this serum! The key is to stay consistent (which I’m not good at yet, lol) and you’ll see results. Did I mention that they’re currently price-matched? It’s okay. You can do the “Yay, it’s on sale!” dance.
CARBON38 Takara Action Leopard Bra – When this collection from Carbon38 dropped, I knew I had to get the black leopard sports bra and matching black leopard leggings (I got the 7/8 length). If you’re small-chested and sweat a ton, I promise you, this bra will NOT feel sticky after your sweat session!
The material is thin, but don’t let it fool you. My sports bra has been through several months of washes, at least once a week and it still looks new! FYI, this bra is NOT supportive for women with bigger chests.
I know high-quality workout clothes can get expensive. But I must say a sale happened right before I pulled the trigger so I was lucky to save some dough!
TRIDEER Weight Lifting Gloves – I researched for several weeks on the best weight lifting gloves after getting callouses from my workouts. After seeing the reviews match the kind of gloves I was looking for, I added it to my cart and put them to the test right away.
Ladies and gentlemen, these gloves fit the bill if you lift and lift often. If it says anything, I use them for weighted HITT circuits, machine workouts, barbell complexes, and they’ve even withstood trap bar deadlifts!
However, even with good ventilation, I’ve poured sweat through these gloves. I will say that they wash very well. I just put them in a zipped pillowcase to keep them extra protected when washing. Note, I work out four times a week at minimum.
And that’s it for my 2019 best summer purchases!
Let me know if you end up getting anything from my list. I’d love to know what you think!
