Five Friday Favorites - Quarantine Buys

For this week's Five Friday Favorites, I wanted to share some of my favorite quarantine buys. Most of them are household things because we spent A LOT of time at home and that has my brain going on how can we reorganize, improve or make prettier. :)

#1 - Bike
shirt / shorts (similar) / flip flops

This bike has been the BEST purchase! Now I can ride around the neighborhood with my girls...especially now that little Mini is off her training wheels. It was very affordable ($99) which was a must because I wasn't sure how much I was going to use it. I added the cute basket to help transport stuff on our adventures.

#2 - Outdoor Trash Can
This trash can was a must since we are spending SO much time outside during quarantine. There's a lot less in an out of the house while we are outside. While this one is sold out, I found a similar one here and here.

#3 - Stuff to Organize

I've had A LOT of time on my hands these last 11 (almost 12) weeks of quarantine so I've gotten around to organizing projects that have been on my list for a few years now. And of the rooms/drawers I've tackled, these three items have been my favorites because they are affordable and really got the job done to help keep things neat, in order but still allowing for me to see everything we have. I've got another blog post coming after I tackled under my bathroom sink, the minis bathroom closet and the guest room closet (where I store our extra sheets/towels). Stay tuned.

#4 - New Kitchen Sink Set Up 

I wish I had a picture of the before of my kitchen sink set up so you can see how I simplified the space. I used to have a sponge/brush holder, dish soap, all purpose cleaner, hand soap, lotion and other random stuff. Now it's simplified to soap/lotion in one area and a simple sponge in the other. The other things I need like all purpose spray and dish soap are all under the sink in my new organized cabinet.

#5 - Olaplex #3 and Briogeo

I haven't gotten a haircut in more than four months...maybe five and my ends are hanging on for dear life. Until I can get my hair done these two products have been helping keep y ends on life support. I rotate using them every week or sometimes do both in one washing. If you haven't tried them I highly recommend you do.

Dressing Room Diaries - Red Dress Boutique

Several of the bloggers I love and follow are big fans of Red Dress Boutique so I finally bit the bullet and tried them out. They have a great variety of dressier looks balanced with lots of casual and lounge wear. I ordered four pieces and LOVED all of them. It's rare these days that I keep everything from an online order. Check out what I got...

This is an adorable dress/romper combo (think skort but much more fashionable). I love the eyelet detail on this number and the ruffle sleeve detail is so cute. As I mentioned it looks like a dress but technically it is a romper which is nice because it is on the shorter side. Comes in a bunch of colors. Fit is true to size. I'm in a small (no XS available).

This top is SO swoon-worthy. The red/orange color is a fun pop. I absolutely love the eyelet lace detail on the blouson sleeves. Works with with shorts but you could also pair with jeans/white pants. Fit is true to size.  It also comes in white. 
shirt / shorts (similar)

I am obsessed with this basic white top. It is SO versatile and will be an every season staple for sure. Pair it with pants or shorts. Comes in a few colors. Fit is true to size. 

top / shorts

I'm a big fan of Z Supply and their tees. The material is SO soft and comfortable. I like this particular one because it's a different take on a basic white tee with the blue detail on the neckline and sleeves. went with my usual XS but size up if you want a looser fit. 
shirt / shorts

Dressing Room Diaries - Amazon May Try On

I LOVE eyelet and this top is SO cute for the spring/summer months. Cute ruffle sleeve detail. Works great with jeans or shorts. Fit is true to size and comes in a bunch of colors. You may remember this top from my OOTD when I was "dressing" up on the weekends. :)

I don't know about you but I've always on the hunt for the perfect white v-neck tee and I think I found one (and it's under $20). It is from Amazon's The Drop brand and I love it. Perfect deep (but not too deep) v-neck, length isn't too long and it has just the right amount of baggy to form fitting ration. I'm obsessed with it and want to get it in more colors. Highly recommend! 

It's hard to believe that this sweatshirt is from the Amazon Essentials line. The quality feel like it could be from GAP. I love that it's a little longer in length to wear with leggings. Super cozy and comfortable. Several colors to pick from. Fit is true to size. It has already gotten some use this month since we've had some cooler days. 

When we get back to going out and about and back into the office, this leopard dress is perfect. It's very flattering and very comfortable. Great for the transitioning weather. There are other animal print color options available. Fit is true to size. 

I love a good romper and this one is PERFECT for the spring/summer weather. It's made of a soft cotton which makes it super comfortable. Thick enough straps so your bra doesn't show. Dress it up or down. Pair with a jean jacket for cooler days. Comes in a bunch of color options. Fit is true to size. 
I never thought I'd be one for white leggings but I'm living in leggings these days so might as well change it with a white pair. Love the fit of these...nice high waist and the length is perfect for my height. If white isn't your thing, don't worry they have all different colors.

Target Tuesday - Quarantine Try On Session #2

This is my go-to color for spring and summer so I had to snag this top from the Who What Wear brand.  I love the bright and vibrant color and the ruffle detail is perfect. You can dress it up or down...pair with pants or shorts. Also comes in a chambray color. Fit is true to size.

This is the perfect sweatshirt to add to your comfy clothes collection. And let's face it we are all basically living in comfy clothes these days. Pairs great with leggings, jeans or shorts. I size up for a larger fit. Other colors and prints available. Highly recommend.

I love eyelet for spring/summer and this three-quarter sleeve top from Target's A New Day line is SO cute. Very comfortable and looks great with jeans or shorts. Comes in a pretty red color too. Fit is true to size.

I'm trying to change up my athleisure wear a bit and not always wear leggings and these joggers are PERFECT. Very comfortable and the length isn't an issue. Come in a few colors but I went with the blue because I already have a similar black pair. Fit is true to size. I definitely recommend checking them out.
