“Wendy’s Weekly Picks,” is a feature in which I highlight stuff I like or recommend in the worlds of fashion, gift ideas, home decor, makeup, websites, entertainment, and recipes. Of course, much of the stuff I link to will be affiliate products, which means I’ll receive a commission on any click-throughs or purchases you make through the affiliate links. As always, I appreciate your support! Here are my favorite finds this week:
It’s getting summertime-hot out and, since my due date is still six weeks away, I thought I better get a couple new maternity sundresses as the ones I wore with Jackson four years ago are pretty stretched out and faded and cannot contain my enormous rack (although, really, what can?). I ordered four dresses from Target that were on sale but returned three of them. This is the one I’m keeping and I love it — the color, the cut, and the style are all flattering, and I bet I’ll probably continue wearing it for a few weeks after I give birth.
Anthropologie is also having a sale (20% off through the end of the day) on shorts, and tops, too. I would never pay full price for this, but 20% off makes it, I don’t know, kind of doable? (Though, honestly, I’d probably wait ’til it was marked down 50%). Same with this one (in blue). Ooh, and I love this one. And if I were rich and skinny and young (maybe you are these things?), I would wear this (with lots of gold jewelry and high heels) to pre-dinner drinks on my vacation in St. Tropez. (Once, when I was skinny and young, I did vacation in St. Tropez. I was not rich, but I had a credit card and a free place to stay. I went out for pre-dinner drinks, but I did not wear an outfit like this — I think I wore a jean skirt and a t-shirt — and that’s too bad. Youth really is wasted on the young. Or, at least it was on young me).
Related to an article I shared in last week’s Friday Links, I’m thinking about getting these period panties (is there a worse product name?), especially for use in the days after baby comes. Has anyone tried them?
Bath and Body Works is having a 75% off sale on certain products (plus $10 off purchases of $40 with code TEN4U). I stopped by the store after I returned my dresses at Target yesterday and it was a mad house — a line literally out the door. Needless to say, I will make any purchases online.
I wish I had an excuse (and the body and the extra $259) to wear this because it’s beautiful and I love it.
This swimsuit is so cute. Also, what do you guys think of the long-sleeve swimsuit look? I’m seeing it all over (and in a fashion-y way, not a surfer way). On one hand, I think it’s sort of ugly? But, on the other hand, sun protection! And, actually, I do like this one.
