What We Bought & Loved this Month

And just like that, another month is here and almost gone! As usual, there was no shortage of packages arriving at Team LIY’s doorsteps. Thank you, delivery drivers! Most of us are gearing up for Spring [if you shop for it, it will come.. right?!] and getting packed up for vacation. #SpringBreakFOREVER Another month calls for another round of “What We Bought & Loved” – sharing our latest and greatest finds! Make yourself comfortable; here’s everything we’re buying and loving lately!

Shorts [true to size, wearing in small] // LOFT Tee [oversized fit, wearing in small] // Dolce Vita Sandals [size up .5]

For under $20, you can’t beat these linen-blend shorts from Target! Give me a pull-on waist, a bright fun color for summer, and nice deep pockets and I’m set! Lightweight, airy, and the perfect shorts to pair with a fun statement tee!

Old Navy Linen Pants [true to size, wearing L] // Tube Top [TTS, wearing large]

Claire here! I tried 4 different linen pants to find the perfect pair this season, and this $20 option from Old Navy was my fav! They’re available in several more colors here and come in Petite, Regular, and Tall. For reference, I’m usually between a M-L and wear these in size large regular length for 5’5″!

Button Down Top [sized up for an oversized look, wearing large] // Pull-On Shorts [size down if in between, wearing medium] // Tube Top [TTS, wearing large]

Keeping the easy-breezy linen looks rolling! I picked up this set from Target and wore it on repeat during vacation. You can wear the pieces together, separately, for a casual look or even beach cover-up! Available in a ton of colors & patterns! For reference, I found the shorts to run large. I exchanged my size larges for a medium!

Pullover [Size up if in between, wearing Large] // Green Skort [Size up if in between, wearing Large] // Blue Skort [Size up if in between, wearing Large] // Golf Shoes

Let’s hit the links! It’s almost golf season, which can only mean one thing: new golf outfits! Full disclosure – this is my first year golfing. I’m still learning, so I’ve been playing at pretty casual courses to get the swing of things… see what I did there? 😉 If you’re playing a private course, you might need something a little more formal!

Pixi FortifEYE Eye Patches

This is some raw and reel footage of me just waking up 🤣 My son Denver was born in November and being up every few hours for months starts to take a tollllll 😴 Don’t get me wrong, I am SO SO grateful but also can feel overtired, stressed, and out of it some days! The bags + wrinkles feel like they are starting to add up HA (which is totally okay) but I wanted to do something about it. I heard that these eye patches are a natural “botox” alternative, so I thought HEY worth a try! So far, I truly do feel and see a difference 👏 I tried the firming but Pixi also makes Depuffing and Brightening.

Elf Halo Glow Liquid Filter [shown using this product and mascara only!]

For under $15, I recommend trying this stuff out STAT! It’s gone viral and now I can see why! Now my skin is not the best, but it truly does make the skin look filtered in my opinion (not that we need that to feel good!). I was honestly pretty confused by it before I purchased – is it a primer? Is it a foundation? Is it a highlighter? But it’s honestly kind of all the above! It’s described as, “multi-purpose, liquid glow booster and skincare-makeup hybrid is infused with skin-loving ingredients that work to enhance the overall look of skin while rendering a soft-focus, effortless radiance”. You can put this on by itself to give a little boost and evening to the skin or mix with your foundation for a “glow from within”! I put a littleeee too much confidence in my FL vacay tan (which has already faded in the IN snow LOL) and bought shade medium, but I really need shade 3 light/medium.

Dry Shampoo Powder

I have tried SO MANY dry shampoos, and this one is by far my favorite ever! I was intimidated at first since it’s a loose powder, but it’s so easy to use and my hair lasts longer between washes than it ever has!

Horse Racing Game

Oh my, FUN. We just got this horse racing game in after hearing about it from friends, and wow – it does not disappoint. We busted this out this past weekend when we had a houseful of friends over and we couldn’t stop playing it — to make it even more intense, play with quarters and you’ll be cheering for your horses louder than you do on Derby Day Such a fun gift to give as well!

Handmade Wooden Growth Chart [LIY15 for 15% off]

HOW special is this handmade wooden growth chart?! It will be so fun (and bittersweet) to make marks on this as Denver grows 😭 You can choose to get it with or without personalization! Mine is the medium brown stain, but there are also different stain options available or canvas hanging charts at a lower price point here.
