Everything Our Editors Are Buying Online This Month

There’s this random scene in Gilmore Girls where Loralai and Rory are telling Emily that they love shopping online — but then Emily reminds them of the ~magic~ of shopping in-store, and they take back their statement and declare that online shopping is overrated.

That was the day I realized I will never be a Gilmore Girl.

Truth is, I looooove online shopping. I love picking out a new wardrobe, reading up on skincare trends, and stocking up on home essentials — all from the comfort of my rattiest sweatpants with a plate of enough cauliflower pizza to negate the fact that it’s cauliflower pizza. And I’m not alone — shopping online has become so popular that you can get just about aaanything from the push of a few buttons.

Here, we share everything our own editors are buying online this month — from Amazon Prime and Target to Abercrombie and Sephora (and everywhere in between).

 

Summer Fridays

Jet Lag Mask in Mini

My sister became a mom this year, so I wanted to give her something small but luxurious for her first Mother's Day. I was so excited to find the smaller size of this cult favorite mask — it's a more affordable way to give the mask a try for the first time!

Abercrombie

Ripped High Rise Ankle Jeans

I'm always looking for distressed jeans that don't look sloppy. These fit the bill!

Express

Cut-Out Side Jumpsuit

I'm cheating a little bit because I bought this last month, but I think you'll forgive me when you hear why — this is the most AMAZING jumpsuit. It's insanely flattering, made of thick, quality material, and is super super sexy. I wore it to see Kinky Boots on Broadway, and I felt like a smokeshow! I'm excited to wear it next to a wedding over Memorial Day weekend.

Leatherology

Junior Zippered Portfolio

There are a few college graduates in my life this year, and I think this could be a really cool gift for either a guy or girl transitioning into the ~real world~. It comes in several colors and two different sizes — and you can personalize/monogram it.

 

 

Replica

"Beach Walk" Travel Spray

I love travel perfumes — the best way to try ~ fancy ~ scents without spending your rent money. This one is called "Beach Walk" and I can't wait to buy it and live out my Diane-Keaton-at-a-lake-house-in-a-Nancy-Myers-movie persona.

Christina Lauren

"The Unhoneymooners" novel

I pre-ordered this because there is nothing I love more than laying in a patch of glorious sunshine and reading about two hot people in love. GIMME.

 

 

CupSHE

Lilies Print Tank Top One-Piece Swimsuit

After having two babies, I, for one, am thrilled that one-pieces are in. This one’s super affordable, fits well, and is cute enough that I bought it in two colors.

Kndio

Floor Bike Pump

We ~think~ spring has hit Chicago, and that means finally dusting off those bicycles collecting dust in our garage for the last eight months — this affordable pump is perfect for filling flat tires and is small and easy to store.

Origins

Original Skin Retexturizing Mask With Rose Clay

This rose clay mask is my ultimate fave — all the benefits of clay, but in a formula that dries quickly and is easy to wash off in the sink without scrubbing my face raw.

BareMinerals

BareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer

I've tried every major concealer but I always come back to this one — good coverage for those mom undereye circles, but light and easy to blend in a shade that actually matches my skin.

 

Sam Edelman

Krissy Espadrille Flat

These are the perfect wear-everywhere shoes for summer. My friend recently got them and told me they’re the most comfortable espadrilles she’s ever worn, so they’ve been on my list since.

Charlotte Tilbury

Hollywood Flawless Filter

Everyone says this is the Instagram pretty filter in a jar, so I figured it’s time to finally take the plunge and buy it (for extra glowy skin this summer). Our makeup expert Beth Gillette said it’s the best makeup product she’s ever gotten, so this will be my first summer makeup buy!

Abercrombie

Belted Wide-Leg Pants

These pants are perfect for work and I love the tan color. They’ll be a perfect alternative to tight jeans on a hot summer day, and are an effortless way to take a “jeans and tee” look up a notch.

 

 

dpHue

Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse

Now that winter is over and I'm dying for long, luscious locks for summer, I'm relying on this miracle product to get rid of buildup, repair damage, and promote shine. I'm ready for nothing but good hair days!

Caterina Bertini

Woven Clutch With Polished Beads

If you haven't heard, I'm obsessed with all-things-straw, but this stylish clutch is a little bit more unique than your average straw purse. It's big enough for your phone, head phones, and sunscreen during a beach day, and chic enough for a night out on the town. I'm going to be wearing this clutch everywhere this summer!

Love Wellness

Bye Bye Bloat Digestive Enzymes

So no one wants bloat year-round, but especially during summer time — when you're slurping on salty margaritas in skimpy bathing suits, bloat can seem more brutal. I'm stocking up on these chic little "Bye, Bye Bloat" pills that contain digestive enzymes and natural ingredients that not only help your body break down food and absorb proper nutrients, but also improve your overall digestive health (plus, they'll fit discreetly in your pool bag!)

Topshop

Coco Linen Blazer

I've been dying for a linen blazer since it dropped below 50 degrees last October. A linen blazer just screams "summer in the Hamptons" or a really chic tropical vacay (even if I am just staying here in Chicago!). Pair it with a sundress and sneakers or denim cut-offs and sandals for an immediate outfit update.

 

 

A New Day

Michaela Pumps in Orchid

I own these strappy Target pumps in black and they're SO comfortable and cute — I just had to buy them in a cute color for spring and summer!

Cuyana

Travel Case Set

I bought a monogrammed set of these in black for my mom for Mother's Day and now they're No. 1 on my birthday wish list!

OPI

Lisbon Wants Moor OPI

I had to buy this nail polish after it was recommended to me by a friend. I think it'll be the perfect pale pink shade for spring!

 

 

Gray Malin

"Italy" book

We went to the Amalfi Coast on our honeymoon six years ago and then went back again this past summer. It is my most favorite place in the world and am so excited to see one of my favorite photographers capture the beauty of the area.

Lake Pajamas

Desert Sky Long Sleeve Nightgown

This brand is my favorite way to splurge on myself. I am all about cozy clothes and I live in this nightgown and their pjs. Totally worth treating yourself.

LIAO Jewelry

Weave Straw Double Disc Drop Earrings

These earrings are so lightweight and adorable for summer. They add some great texture and interest to the most simple outfits for $11!

LOFT

Scalloped Romper

I am really loving all of the preppy details on this romper and the blue and white color combo is my favorite #blueandwhiteforever

 

 

Madewell

Knot-Front Tee

I bought this in black last month and have worn it so much that I have a white one sitting in my cart. It's fitted without being too fitted and looks great with jeans or flowy pants.

Makeup Eraser

Black Makeup Eraser

I was a little skeptical when I first tried the MakeUp Eraser last summer, but it's legit magic. It makes the makeup removal process so much easier and there's no longer a need for eye makeup remover. Just follow with your favorite cleanser and skincare routine!

 

 

IGK

2-in-1 Shampoo/Texturizer

I have very fine hair that always looks flat. One night, I was perusing the Sephora app before bed (a daily occurrence honestly) and found this shampoo, and I can't stop thinking about it. It's basically supposed to give the look of second day hair immediately after you wash it. I just have a feeling this is about to change my hair life.

What Do You Meme?

"Buzzed" Game

I'll be real, I'm not one for board games. I didn't play all the popular games until they were basically out of style. However, I saw this on Twitter, and I think this is exactly what I need to make me a game person. It has everything I love — you get to roast your friends (in a healthy way!) and drink at the same time! Bonus points for that two-day Prime delivery because I'll probably spontaneously pick this up for a night with friends.

    Beth can you report back on the shampoo/ texturizer!
