My Favorite Purchases from May

Giving you a peek into my favorite purchases from last month!

My biggest purchase of the month was this foldable bike. As NYC starts to ramp back up, I wanted a way to commute to the office while avoiding the crowded subways, but needed something compact enough to fit in our basement storage unit. I’m so happy with it! On the weekend it arrived, I biked all the way to Central Park to visit my friend Tracy and have been using to get around ever since. Of course, I bought a cute helmet, bicycle bell, bike lock and this phone holder to go with it!

Around the house, I bought these gold hooks and hanging baskets for entryway storage. We have them hanging next to our front door where we have our dog’s leash in one basket and our face masks and sunglasses in the other. I’m on a big organization kick and I love this set up,because it’s both functional and perfect with our modern coastal aesthetic.

For clothes, I turned to my favorite brand LOFT because their sales are too good right now and they’re killing it with the spring/summer lineup. I picked up this floral top and pleated shorts and will be sharing a post on how to create different outfits next week (check out my Instagram Story Highlight under “Outfit Ideas” if you can’t wait until then).

James and I celebrated our five year anniversary at the end of the month and we’re both obsessed with the blue floral short sleeve shirt he’s wearing in the photo we took together (here’s the white eyelet dress that I’m wearing). His shirt is from Abercrombie and I have a few more men’s shirts in my shopping cart for him (like this one and this one).

Lastly, in the kitchen, we bought this 3-piece blue casserole dish set (which we use several times a week now!) , a rolling pin (we’ve got big baker aspirations – ha!), chopsticks (believe it or not, we’re Asian and didn’t own any!) and a new pair of oven mitts.

There you have it – a weird hodgepodge of purchases from last month, but I have to say, I’m getting good use out of everything already! Is there anything you purchased recently that you’re loving right now? Let me know in the comments below!
