August flew by for me, and as summer is coming to a close I’m definitely beginning to get excited for football season, pumpkin patches, and all the fall fashion! I bought a lot of dresses in August, and near the end had to stop myself since once the Seattle gloom hits, I will be living in sweaters & booties.. and a rain coat.
If you missed out on my July Top 10 Favorites, check that out here as I’m still loving a lot of those products as well. And I can’t wait to start finding some fall inspired finds for you all in September!

1. Target Off The Shoulder Dress
This has easily become my favorite purchase of the summer, and the dress is so good that I had to get it in two colors. The print and sleeves also make it the perfect dress to transition from summer to fall. This dress fits true to size, and I’m wearing a small for reference.
2. The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
It took me a while to get this product, mainly because it has constantly been sold out online, and I see why. I’m someone who struggles deeply with clogged pores, which is why I’ve been trying to add in more AHA & BHA products into my routine. These products usually contain salicylic acid which helps to exfoliate the skin and keep pores clear. My skin feels really tight and clear after using this product, but please make sure to be careful and do not use for any more than 10 minutes!
3. Kaseme Peaches Phone Case
I got a new phone probably about four months ago and really struggled to find a phone case I liked and that also felt comfortable to hold. I was sent this phone case by KASEME – and have been loving it! They have a lot of super cute designs, and I just really love the way this one feels in my hands.
4. Target Puff sleeve dress
This is officially the last dress I bought this summer, and I was not let down. This dress came in a few different colors and this white one is perfect. This dress would be perfect for any sort of bridal occasion, and I also ordered it in the black since it fit so well. I would say it fits true to size, and I’m wearing a small for reference.
5. Amazon Headband holder
I’ve been loving the headband trend lately, and with so many they were just sitting out on my vanity and I was getting really annoyed at how cluttered it looked. One quick Amazon search and my problems were solved. This holds a lot of headbands and also has storage in the middle that I put my scrunchies, hair scarves, and bandanas in!
6. Abercrombie Straight Leg Jeans
I’ve been wearing skinny jeans for years now and haven’t got on board with any other style. I hold most of my weight in my lower belly so sometimes finding looser fitting jeans to fit my waist can look too baggy on my legs. Abercrombie was having a sale on jeans and so I decided to go for these ones. I was a little hesitant at first, but now they’ve become my go to pair.
7. Target Belt Bag
Another trend that took me a while to get on board with was the belt bag trend, or as I called it growing up.. a fanny pack. I found a cute pink one off Nordstrom a few months ago, and just found this one at Target that goes with almost all of my outfits. I actually think that these bags are the most functional, as someone who doesn’t like to carry a lot around when I go out I love that these hold my phone, keys, hand sanitizer, a face mask, and some chapstick. It also has a zipper spot so you can keep some cards separated out.
8. Amazon Polaroid Picture Printer from Phone
I’m an avid fan of bullet journals, and one of the spreads I always make for the year is a “year in polaroids” where I put one polaroid a month in my journal. Last year I took one each month with my polaroid camera, and this year things have been a bit different since I’m not traveling as much. I’ve also wasted a lot of film in either really bad lighting situations or if my cat moves too quickly. That’s one of the reasons I got one of these, so that I could print anything from my phone. It is a little pricey, but I love polaroids for crafting, putting in cards, and for displaying in the nice polaroid frames.
Also you can checkout my Morning Routine blog post here, where I recommend bullet journaling along with some other creative ideas.
9. Nasty Gal Trousers
I love wide leg pants in the summer, for when it’s a little too hot for jeans but I’m not quite feeling a skirt or dress. I like that this pair has a pretty neutral color so it can be styled many different ways.
10. Lavish Quick Color Switch Dry Brush Cleaner
This was something I got in a Boxy Charm subscription (let me know in the comments if you’d like a blog post reviewing the subscription!). I didn’t think I would use it as much as I do. It’s really great for cleaning your eye shadow brush in between shades, and since I don’t clean my makeup brushes as often as I should this is a great fix for when you’re doing different eye looks. It also comes in such a handy tin for travel, and the sponge is washable so you can keep using it for a while!
I hope you all really enjoyed this month’s roundup! I normally write a post dedicated to all of my Amazon purchases during the month, but the only two things I bought are already on this list!
Hoping everyone had a great summer, and please let me know in the comments what you’re most looking forward to in the fall, and how I can help with all your fall fashion needs!
Also with the release of Instagram Reels I’ve been posting a lot of video reels on Instagram and post daily outfits, sale finds, and a lot of beauty/skincare! Follow me here 🙂
