To clarify, the title of this story refers to my shopping for fashion items. I say that because while I’ve been buying way less clothing and fewer shoes and accessories lately, I’ve been spending more money on groceries and household cleaning products than ever.
Nonetheless, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to doing a little extracurricular adding-to-cart here and there. Yes, I’m prioritizing the rational self-quarantine essentials first, but I can’t help but also spend a little on stay-at-home fashion items such as cozy slippers, cute loungewear, and cool-feeling basics that I can wear both now and later, too. As they say—old habits die hard. And since I’ve already shared my picks for the first two, I figured why not round it out with the latter today. To shop all the wearable-but-interesting basics I’m eyeing right now, just keep scrolling.
I can't be the only one who still loves wearing black in spring and summer.
Of course, I'm eyeing the matching sweats, too.
Sporty sandals, meet pink mock croc.
There's no such thing as too many cool tanks.
Long shorts are very important right now.
I love everything about this, from the print to the cut to the color.
I've been wanting a single, chunky gold ring, and this just might be the lucky winner.
Tie-dye print clothing has been a major mood-lifter for me lately. Shop the matching Milan Biker Shorts ($90).
Ripped jeans are in the middle of a comeback, and I'd like to be part of it.
Just so cute.
I think this speaks for itself.
You'll never get sick of these sandals. They'll look good with dresses, jeans, skirts, or anything else.
My spring motto is tanks, tanks, and more tanks.
If there were ever a dress to wear at home, this would be it.
I'll never think of a slip skirt the same again.
I'm very into shackets these days.
From the color to the strap detail, everything about this baguette bag is just better.
I'm a sucker for anything in this color.
Since, as you may have heard, baggy jeans are back.
I've been eyeing these for so long.
Voluminous dresses are going to be a staple this summer.
It's not a regular T-shirt. It's a cool T-shirt.

If you know, you know.
Just add sandals.

I'm taking notes on the styling, too.
Little touches make a big difference.
There's always a goal pick.
I'm not usually that into brown, but this bag really speaks to me.
Low risk, high reward.
