I love online shopping, but it can be dangerous – I’ve somehow managed to click the “submit order” button several times without even realizing it! But it’s so convenient – it’s much easier trying on clothing in the comfort of your home – and pairing it with accessories you already own, to see if a new piece really belongs in your wardrobe.

When it comes to summer fashion – I want my clothes to be casual, trendy, stylish and cute! And or course, I’m always hunting for the best deals and prices. I’ve recently placed orders with Chicwish, Shein, Forever21 and Old Navy – and have taken pics of my favourite items.
By the way, I always get a lot of questions about ordering from Chinese clothing sites (i.e. Chicwish and Shein) – which is why I wrote this post with all of my best tips!
And now on to my clothing haul:
I talked about wanting this Chicwish Embroidered Maxi Dress in my Florida post – and I’m so glad it’s finally mine. It’s so pretty with the embroidered roses plus the pink pom pom trim – it’s the perfect holiday dress! I posted it on my IG and received many DMs about ordering it – so I know you guys love it too!

This pink tunic is the same design as the grey striped one I shared in this 2018 trends post. It’s a comfy top to pair with jeans or leggings.

I am in love with this pink ruffle top – it’s so feminine and pretty. I wore this on our recent weekend away in Muskoka (blog post coming soon!) The pink is currently out of stock, but it also comes in a gorgeous cream version – I discovered it when I was looking for a link for this post, and now I’m so tempted to order it too!

This is a classic white blouse with pretty ruffled sleeves – I’ve been wearing it with jeans, but I also think it will look pretty paired with a flared midi skirt! I love the quality and can’t believe that it costs $16 – it feels like it’s worth a lot more!

This dress is pure love BUT I played it safe and ordered a Medium rather than my usual Small – and as it turns out, it’s a little baggy. So I immediately went online and ordered it in the correct size, and will be mailing this one back. Don’t you love the florals and the soft pink and all the ruffles?

Me and my white lace dresses…I can never have enough – especially when they come with fancy sleeve details like on this dress! It’s a classic summer dress, and I’ve already worn it to an event at the Island Yacht Club. The round pixie bag dupe might look familiar – I shared it in green in this post – and I loved it so much, I ordered the tan version too!

I didn’t really have a plan for this lace kimono – but it was only $19 and I feel like it’s something that is handy to have around. Maybe I’ll try wearing it over a slip dress, or use it as a swimsuit cover-up.

By the way – I didn’t buy all of these SHEIN clothes at once – they are from several orders over the last few months. This eyelet shirt was an earlier purchase – I wore it to an event in May!

I don’t have any try-on pictures of these, but I also ordered a bunch of swimsuits and this tassel cover-up for my upcoming beach holiday birthday trip!

I have a major weakness for “tea dresses” – they’re feminine dresses with pretty prints and a midi length. I often check out the new arrivals section of Forever21, because they get REALLY cute and inexpensive pieces. This pink butterfly sleeve dress was under $30! Oh – and this Chloe-inspired tassel backpack is such an adorable style…I’ve actually ordered a grey version from Amazon, so I’m going to decide which one to keep once I have both in front of me.

This white ruffle blouse has quite a low neckline, so I’ve paired it with a tank. It’s very lightweight and looks great with jeans.

This maxi dress is THE dress of the summer from Old Navy – it’s VERY popular, so pick it up if you get the chance! I ordered mine online, then ended up receiving it at an Old Navy event I went to – so it was definitely meant to be mine!

My final summer order for this post is this lace dress from Chicwish. I love that Chicwish releases different colours of their most classic pieces. I featured this dress in red in a post last year, and I knew I’d get a lot of wear out of this white version. I’ve paired it with the cutest pink circle bag, gifted to me by Poppy & Peonies – it feels so glam and vintage. They also sent me the teeny green crossbody bag featured in the pic above!
I loved sharing this post – it felt good to put all of my recent purchases together in one place. Hope it helped you find some summer shopping inspiration too!
What’s your favourite summer purchase this year?
Everything looks so amazing on you! We really are so similar in the prints, colors, and silhouettes we are drawn to. I’d wear all of this! So far, I think my fave summer purchases include espadrilles and a couple tea dresses 🙂
It's so true – we totally love the same things, which is why I love getting inspo from your outfit posts! And I could SO see you in these outfits 🙂
SO many great pieces! I'm not really a tunic girl, but that pink one is probably my favorite piece here. Maybe because you style it so well. I usually love your style, so feminine, romantic.. awesome! my wallet will hate you now, but I think I need some new pieces in my closet hahaxo Honey – blog Royal Lifestyle – Twitter – Instagram
Awwww you're too sweet! I'm surprised at how much I've been enjoying tunics recently too – this is my 3rd for the summer (and I think that's enough for me for now ha ha).
Old Navy has some darling prints this season. I just received their palm-print khaki Pixie pants and I LOVE them! They're even nicer than they look on the website, remarkably sleek for what is described as "utility pants."
You are absolutely right – I adore their prints – they're so classic and cheerful. Will have to look out for those khakis – they sound cute!
Your outfits are awesome! I love the white lace dress!
Thank you – it's so nice owning a "wear anywhere" lace dress. Always great when you're not sure what to pack!
