October 2, 2023


Team LIY

And just like that, it’s October! HOW?! WHAT? WHEN!? I don’t know about you, but it feels like this year is flying by! Never mind the fact that it’s still 80 degree weather [long live summer!] Team LIY is gearing up for all things fall. As usual, there was no shortage of packages arriving at the LIY Team’s doorsteps this month. Thank you, delivery drivers! Another month calls for another round of “What We Bought & Loved” – sharing our latest and greatest finds! Get your shopping fingers ready; here’s everything we’re buying and loving lately!

Claire’s Lululemon Jackets

Always Effortless Jacket [size down, runs oversized wearing 12] // Cinched Waist Jacket [size down, runs oversized wearing 10]

I couldn’t decide between these two jackets, so I ordered both with the intention of returning my least favorite. They both run a bit more oversized than I expected, so I’ll be exchanging for smaller sizes! For reference, I’m typically size M/L or 10/12 and will be swapping both for a size smaller!

Sorel Booties [true to size] Taffy/Gum 2 color

I’ve been eyeing these babies for sometime… finally just did it! I have a black pair from last season that I wore the junk out of, so I thought let’s go brown this time around! I love that these just slide on so easy and are super duper comfy to wear all day long! Bonus: WATERPROOF!

Jen’s Tory Burch Miller Sandals

Tory Burch Miller Sandals [size up .5] color: Vintage Vachetta Leather

Funny story, these have been sitting in my cart for almost 2 years now.. I couldn’t ever pull up to checkout because I didn’t want to spend the money, on just “sandals” — but last month I was packing up for vacation and thought, those sandals would go with SO MANY OUTFITS – and I would only have to pack those, lessening up my shoe load for my luggage… so I did it, and I’m hear to report – they are worth it! They go with so many outfits and are comfy as all gets! I can’t believe I waited so long, I know these will last for years!
