Bralettes to Life Saving Jewelry- What I’m Obsessed with Right Now

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin

Call me picky, but it actually takes quite a bit for something to reach ‘obsession’ level with me. I’ve seen a lot of fashion trends and, while I like some of them, I usually don’t get super excited.

Every once in a while, however, something pops up out of the blue like a pleasant little surprise. I must be having a good month or two, because three of those ‘little surprises’ manifested themselves over the past couple weeks. So, without further ado, here’s the low down on what I’m loving right now.

  1. This specific bralette from Victoria’s Secret.

Bralettes aren’t new. In fact, I own a couple and they weren’t even on my radar when I walked into my local VS the other day. The last couple bras I bought were either online, or I didn’t try them on, which led to less than great fit. Determined not to make the same mistake, I stopped by the VS store to try stuff on in person. You know, like a normal person and not the online buying millennial I am. This turned out to be a great idea because I came across this bralette that was perfect in every way. It fit great, it was unbelievably comfortable, AND it didn’t have underwire or clips in the back (it pulls over the head). I literally could sleep in this thing it was so comfy. The nail in the coffin was that they were 2/$30. That’s a freaking steal. Obviously I bought two, and I seriously thought about getting multiples as back ups. I loved it so much I literally took a half naked selfie in the bra to show to my two best friends…”You need one of these!!!” I think that qualifies as obsession level.

  1. This jewelry company that helps save women from human trafficking

I came across the Starfish Project on Instagram and immediately fell in love with their business idea and their jewelry. This jewelry company helps women in Asia gain independence and break free from exploitation (usually sexual). The best part is, that the jewelry is really pretty (I like simple pieces, and they have plenty of them!) and it’s affordable. On their Instagram and website (starfish_project) they even say what each piece can fund. For example, one necklace can pay for health care costs for one woman, or housing for a week, etc. It’s really cool knowing that you can help out in that way and still only pay less than $50 for most of the jewelry. Here are a couple of my favorite pieces:

Shop the Tori Necklace (this is a choker <3 <3 <3) and the Carter Earrings.

Shop the Madelyn and  Kerry Necklace. (They have silver jewelry too, but I love all the gold)

  1.  Compression socks

Okay, you really weren’t expected that were you? Of all the fun fashion out there, my current obsession is…compression socks? Like, what old people and pregnant women wear? Yes, yes, and yes. I’m not even ashamed. My doctor had recommended CS (for POTS) so, I borrowed a pair of my husband’s compression socks that he had purchased because of a past knee surgery. LIFE CHANGED. My legs had been aching constantly and the socks immediately relieved all pain. It was crazy and I never want to take them off. I also proceeded to buy another pair from Amazon. This is the exact pair that he (and I) purchased:

And here’s the link. I’m not saying that they’re going to cure all your pain issues, but if you have blood pooling in the legs you may want to seriously consider trying a pair!

 

In short-

All I want to do is wear my new bralette, compression socks, and gold necklaces. Nothing else matches the greatness of that outfit. Although, I may put on some pants if I decide to leave the house (you’re welcome). 

 

What are you obsessed with right now? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
