Prime Purchases: September 2021

Hello! How was your weekend? I love a three day weekend, and this one was much needed! Back to school has felt like a big adjustment, so it was nice to have yesterday off. Now, I just need to conquer this four day week 😉

Today, I’m linking up with Tanya to share this month’s Prime Purchases.

I saw these meme recently, and they certainly apply to me over the past month (6 weeks?):


I feel like I have lots of purchases this month BUT a few were from July as well. Also, honestly, if I didn’t buy them from Amazon, I would have made multiple trips to Target and other stores, so Prime definitely continues to be a life saver!

Here are my purchases:

I’ve shared some of these items in previous posts this month, but now I’m putting everything in one Amazon post…

I mentioned that I got these sandals before our trip to California, and I wear them almost every day to school. Also, I’ve paired them with shorts, jeans, and white pants.

These sandals are one of my favorite purchases of the summer.


I also shared this dress in my California trip recap, and I’ve worn it to church and to school as well.

Here I am as we were about to head to the track…

…and a better look at the split collar.

Plaid Dress

Hadley continues to love her back to school shorts. She has them in the rose color as well as gray and black.

We got her a women’s xs, and here they are in gray.

Linen Ruffle Shorts

This shirt has been a perfect transition piece because it’s lightweight and comfy.

This dress was perfect for summer,

vacation, and…

school! I paired it with my sandals, and I’ve also worn the gray version of this dress and paired it with sneakers and a cardigan for school.

The light weight sweater and short sleeve sweatshirt have been perfect for cooler summer days. I’ve worn both with shorts, jeans, and even my favorite Matilda Jane ruffle pants.

This waffle batwing sleeve cardigan has been a favorite of mine to throw over sleeveless dresses.

So, I had lots of clothing purchases over the past six weeks, but I knew that we were headed on our trip and then school would be starting back right after we returned. I was intentional about buying items that I knew I could wear casually and for school. Also, August 2020, for back to school, I was still wearing leggings and sweatshirts! It’s been since August 2019 that I needed to buy a few school clothing items. #makingupforlosttime

I shared a post about finally taking the time to purge my makeup bag and start fresh. I’d had the same bag, brushes, and products for far too long.

Prime Purchases: August 2021

Hello! How’s it going? We are holding on tight to summer over here! Yesterday, the kids helped me set up my classroom for year number 20! I can’t even believe that I am 2/3 of the way finished with my teaching career. Time sure does fly by! Then, we spent the afternoon at the pool followed by lots of neighborhood kids playing outside and an impromptu decision to pick up some carry out pizzas for dinner. We had a perfect summer Monday, that’s for sure.

Today, I’m linking up with Tanya for this month’s Prime Purchases.

Here’s what I bought this month:

First up is the mini massage gun for Travis. Travis is a runner, and he always takes the time to stretch and cool down. The massage gun was the perfect birthday gift for him!

Massage Gun

I wanted to add in a Vitamin C serum to my routine to help brighten up my skin. I’ve been using this serum once a day, and it’s been a good addition to my skin care routine.

Vitamin C Serum

I recently shared that I bought a messenger bag, and I turned to Amazon to find the perfect strap for summer. I thought this black, pink, and rose gold one was fun. There are lots of cute color and pattern options.

Purse Strap

I actually have another one ordered that will be here in a couple weeks. I love being able to change out the straps for different seasons.

I purchased this dress for an upcoming occasion, and I was pleasantly surprised with the blue and white pattern and how easy breezy it is for summer.

Plaid Tunic Dress

I love this pink top because it can be paired with my white jeans or denim shorts. It’s a great summer option that I can also wear to school.

Flowy Blouse

Hayden was in need of a new back pack, and chose this Under Armour one. It arrived, is great quality, and there are lots of color options.

Under Armour Backpack

As I prep for our back to school celebration, I continued the book tradition and picked this one up for Hadley:

Middle School book

…and this one for Hayden:

6th Grade Ninja book

As expected, this month’s purchases included some things for back to school as well as a few things for myself 😉 (+ a gift for Trav!)

Tanya’s next link up is September 7th.

Well, my kids are off to get their middle school schedules and meet their teachers today. I don’t know what’s harder to believe…the fact that summer is almost over or that I’m about to have two kids in middle school!

What have you been Priming lately?

See you back here tomorrow!
