Fashion Haul|July 2018

I LOVE shopping. I shop all the time. Constantly. Ever since the idea of online shopping became a thing for me, I now have the luxury of shopping at home, in my pjs, every day.

If only there was some sort of fund that allowed me to follow through and make all these purchases a reality.

Pocket change.

Until that happens, I’ll continue to be frugal with my coins and engage in fabulous thrift store finds (comment below if you’d like to see a post on thrifting fashion).

Ok, let’s get down to my favourite part of this blog – the part where I tell you that my husband, Brian actually did the leg work for this haul!

Yes, that’s right. I was at home working on filming a video while Brian took our son to his soccer tournament. In between the games, he went shopping. Unsolicited and unknown to me.

You know what? I loved what he bought me!

So, without further ado, here is what he bought.

Bench
Track Jacket in Black

Sweaters/jackets like this are a fall/winter staple in my wardrobe. I don’t even think Brian knew that I broke the zipper on my only other black sweater, so this was a great purchase. I think my favourite part of this sweater is the raised logo written across the back of the collar.

Hooded Workout Jacket in Grey

The zipper on this one goes slightly into the hood, so it will be great for chilly evening activities outside – like driving with the top off my Jeep. It also has reflective strips around the pockets and on the arms. The best part? Thumb holes. Yes, for some reason I just love thumb holes. I’m not entirely sure why since my arm length matched with my finger length usually prevents me from being able to utilize these features.

Puma
Workout Top in Soft Teal

For those who know Brian, you know that shopping at Puma is nothing new. We should probably own stock in the company because he loves it that much. No joke. So, this was no surprise. However, this is my favourite colour and the fit is what I like to wear – not too tight, but light and flowy. How does he know me so well?

Workout Tights in Grey/Soft Teal/Blue

Ok, once again, Puma. Shocker, I know. Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been wearing the same 2 pairs of workout pants for the last 2 years, or maybe he just saw them and thought about how much I would not only use them, but absolutely love them because they are 100% me. I don’t know. Kudos to him though, because wow. People might not even recognize me at the gym now that I’ll be wearing something new (or colour for that matter).

When Brian came home and showed me his finds, my heart was tickled. Gifts are fun and always welcome from him, but that wasn’t even what I loved about this. I love the fact that he thinks of me, that he knows me and that he gets excited when he surprises me.
