Prime Purchases: June 2021

Hello! Happy June 1st. I can’t believe that it’s already the first day of June! We spent our weekend at a baseball tournament, and yesterday Travis and Hayden went to the Cincinnati Reds game with some friends while Hadley and I spent some time at the pool.

Of course, the significance of Memorial Day isn’t lost on us. We will always remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

I’m linking up with Tanya to share my Amazon purchases from this past month.

I feel like I have bigger purchase months in preparation for things like holidays or certain seasons. I try to plan ahead, so whenever the time comes, I have what I “need.” So, throughout the month, I purchased a few things in preparation for summer.

This meme made me smile 😉

This month’s purchases were definitely all about summer:

Summer Style:

I shared this top and sandals a few weeks ago. I purchased them as something to wear to finish up the school year with warmer days. The top is perfect with jeans or white pants for going out to dinner, and the sandals are very comfortable.

Babydoll Blouse

Slide Sandals

I purchased this dress in black and in the blue wavy stripe, and it’s the perfect summer dress. Both can be dressed up or down and are very comfy!

Tunic Dress

Summer Swim:

In a recent post, I shared about this swim cover up that I’ve worn through the years. I own it in a few colors (blue, black, and plaid), and have added a new one to the rotation the past few summers.

Swim Cover Up

Here I am a couple of summers ago in the blue version at the lake!

I purchased this similar cover up for this summer. I like that it’s the high/low style of my tried and true cover up, but I like that it has the button detail. I’ve already worn this to the pool a couple of times, and it’s a keeper.

Swim Cover Up

**When I wash these two cover ups, I hang dry them rather than putting them in the dryer. The black one that was my first one that I purchased a few summers ago, shrunk a bit after some time in the dryer. So, I hang dry them now.

Ok, y’all….I purchased this swimsuit in the “big leopard” print, and I love it. I do not look like this model ;), but honestly, I’ve never felt more comfortable in a swimsuit in my life. It’s cute, supportive, and flattering. Hadley said, “Mom! That’s a cuuuute swimsuit!”

So…with that kind of approval, I did what any mother in her early 40’s would do…I ordered it in another pattern (leopard, but smaller print) ! Truly, this swimsuit is the best purchase I’ve made in a while.

Crisscross One Piece Swimsuit

Pre-pool with leopard suit & navy coverup

Speaking of swimsuits, I ordered this one for Hadley. She’s back doing swim team for the summer and needed an extra one piece athletic swimsuit to rotate into the mix for daily practices.

I’m kind of freaked out that I’m at the point where I purchased a women’s swimsuit for my daughter, but it was the same sizing as her team suit (26, 28, 30, etc.), so I felt confident we wouldn’t have to return it. It fit her just fine, and she loves it.

Athletic Swimsuit

Andrea shared about this shampoo and conditioner that she has her daughter use to help with all the chlorine from so many pool days. The chlorine wreaked havoc on Hadley’s hair two summers ago, so I was glad when Andrea shared this recently. Hadley used it last week after only a couple of pool days, and her hair felt amazing after her shower.

Shampoo and Conditioner

I’ve also heard that hair masks can be helpful, so we are going to try this as well for Hadley’s hair every once in a while.

Pre-Swim Hair Defense

Summer Reading:

This book was one of Hayden’s picks from his summer reading list, and library didn’t have the young reader’s edition of the book, so I purchased it from Amazon. Hayden’s excited to start reading it!

Strong Inside Book

So, that’s what I’ve primed recently. What about you?!

The next link up is July 6!

I hope your week is off to a great start!

Thanks so much for reading.

  1. Ok I am going to order the suit! I wore my Aerie bright pink tank suit and loved it and was thinking I need another no frills black or with black in it. Tank suits are liberating and always chic and classic! I love the blue chambray looking coverup but worried about it fitting me. I have a new sun hat coming but I love my western looking one. Great purchases!

    1. When I posted about the cover ups, I noticed that the one I’ve purchased over many summers comes in more sizes than my recent purchase. I know what you mean though- I prefer a flowy coverup! I just ordered a wide brimmed visor. I hope it works for my pool days. I’m out of practice from not going last summer 😂

      1. I want the light blue and it won’t arrive until August! Maybe I can find a different brand. I loved my hot pink under my new Target white coverup. It made me happy. I’m so into white right now! I was just thinking I need a visor but I hate getting my scalp burned! Ouch!

      2. Well, that’s always fun 🙂 I think I would try harder to match suit if I was wearing a kimono but a cover up covers up my suit, so I guess that’s why I don’t think much about it.
