July and August Purchases

Here are my July and August purchases... you may remember from this post, I was thinking a lot about my behaviour as a consumer in the past few weeks (also in the past few years but more intense in the past few weeks) and I decided to change my shopping behaviour. I want to shop from organic and fair shops only OR second hand. That is because everything else is not sustainable, is promoting child labor, exploitation etc etc. look at this post for more information. 

ANYWAY, in July and early August I bought a few things from "bad brands"... hopefully the last ones of the year. I really hope that I will remain true to myself and adhere to my new principles and I think the blog will help me since it puts some pressure on me - imagine I will post H&M clothes again in my new "My Purchases" post... you guys will never believe in me again then (and I do not want that to happen!)

But now back to my deals:

This one is my favorite one! A really really wonderful super pretty jacket/blazer/kimono/whatever from ZARA which I got on sale for 40€
I love it! I only wore it twice so far because its still too warm to wear it more often - but Fall is around the corner and I will wear it every day as soon as it gets colder :)

This Kimono is from H&M and I got it on sale for 10€. I wore it on the blog here and I wore it a couple of times with jeans or even with my chinos. Its a great basic and I am really happy that I found it (before I decided not to buy H&M any more ;))

These yoga pants are from Amisu and I got them for 10€ I love to pair them with the shirt I was wearing here and I mainly wear them at home :)

These shorts were another H&M sale find. I got them for 5€ and I wore them here and a couple of times during my vacation :) 

I spent a total of 65€ which is a lot less than I did in the previous months.

Well yes, this one has hopefully been my last "My Purchases" Post ever which included sale frinds from H&M, Zara, etc.! From now on I will show you second hand finds and new ethical brands :) 

How do you like these items? And how do you like the fact that I am no longer going to support the "bad brands"? Do you think this will change my style? I am curious if it going to do so :)

Sending much love and wishing you a wonderful week ahead!


  1. really liked the pants

  2. The kimono is really cute! I am hoping to be able to stay away from stores like that as well. I usually spend more time shopping in thrift stores anyway so hopefully it won't be too difficult. I am looking forward to seeing what kinds of ethical brands you find! I need to start that search myself.

  3. I love the kimono!! Great purchases dear, even if they are from "bad stores" ahah ^-^
    Have a lovely day! :*

  15. Great haul, Larissa, love the striped jacket, cool.

  16. I love the yoga pants, but I fully support seeking out ethical companies. If anything, it makes you way more aware of what you're buying so that when you DO buy, you're only spending money on things you truly love from companies you truly support!


  17. I love the white and black kimono, so cool:) I think it's a very big thing to commit somthing like that to yourself - good for you and I think you will look great and your style will be as good as it was before, who knows, maybe even better, cos you will feel better about yourself in good brand clothes:) I think I should go shopping to my fav second hands - I need some reward for tiring days in kindergarten:P It;s going great though, kids are adorable:) Have a great evening, hugs:)))

  18. Love it and at this time I would like to thank you for all your support!
    Hope you had an amazing week!!

  19. Such great purchases!
    Loving the prints :)

  20. look at those amazing prints! :D

    Have a great day!
