This month I actually made a lot of purchases, but for one reason or another, many of them did not work out so I did a lot of returns, too! After exchanging camo pants from LOFT for a size down, they still stretched out after wearing them around the house so I ordered a pair from Old Navy. These were perfect (and $10 cheaper, too) so it all worked out. Last summer I had a pair of maternity olive green shorts I wore a lot. I was able to find a nonmaternity pair from Old Navy for quite the deal. If you are looking for some shorts, Old Navy is a great place to start, especially if you are on a budget. There are so many colors available!

As I mentioned in this post, the LOFT jumpsuit was a bit of an impulse purchase, but I am now completely on the jumpsuit bandwagon. They are so cute and easy to wear. I prefer them over dresses right now because they are easier to nurse or pump when you have them on which is important to me. I just ordered 2 more jumpsuits from SheIn that I will be sharing in a couple of weeks. If you are looking to try out the jumpsuit trend and are on a budget, I put together a few of them (including the two I ordered) that caught my eye:
For next month I am looking for some distressed jean shorts. I ordered a pair from Old Navy last month, but they were just a little short for my taste. I am also looking at buying a pair of sandals or slides. I have quite a few wedges and I would like a few more flat sandal options. What are you looking to buy in June?


  1. I wouldn't have guessed that I would like jumpsuits but now I own two and want lots more! They are so fun! I love that there are so many different ones so they really fit everyone's style.

  2. These posts are so fun! I can't wait to see you style your new jumpsuits. That seersucker option from SheIn is adorable.

  3. You did well this month! The eyelet top is really cute!

  4. You have the BEST tastes! Happy weekend babe!

  5. You got so many nice pieces! While I'm not a jumpsuit fan, I think anything that make breastfeeding / pumping easier is a good option, especially when it's pieces you can continue to wear afterwards. i still love all the wrap tops i bought for breastfeeding, haha!

    I'm a little annoyed one of the things I bought this month still hasn't shown up yet, so this months' post will be a little incomplete!

    Hope that you have been having a lovely week and you have a great weekend ahead of you! :)

  6. For some reason I've been loving jumpsuits lately too!! And I don't even have your excuse---LOL!! But maybe it's because they are easy??
    In fact, that orange floral jumpsuit is perfection!! Gosh, I'm going to be dreaming of that one all night!!

  7. I have not embraced the jumpsuit trend but I love the last floral orange one! So cute! I might have to try them out! Loft has plus size ones now so I might give it a whirl! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great weekend! =)

  8. My camo pants needed to be a size down too, wish I had returned them and checked ON! I really like the black jumpsuit from Shein near the bottom, not sure I need it but I like the cut so much. Hope you have a great weekend!

  9. That flower print jumpsuit looks so similar to the one I purchased from PinkBlush! I just LOVE those paper bag pants you bought. I so need a pair!


  10. Even though you received less items this month, I love every single piece! These jumpsuits are all amazing!

  11. You picked up some nice items for summertime. Got to love a good jumpsuits. I find one years go at the gap outlet that I love but sadly I can't fit in to my size small clothes yet. I'm holding off on buying to many clothes right now in bigger sizes. In hope I will be able to wear whats in my closet.

  12. I adore jumpsuits, these are beautiful Laura!
    but over the weekend I had part of one fall into the toilet. I don't even want to remember.

  13. Lovely picks dear! I love the cami and pajama combo! Such a chic and cool look for summer! Really comfy too.
