If I Had $1,000 to Blow: August

Welcome back to one of my favorite blog series, If I Had $1,000 to Blow! We paused for a few months, but today we are back in action 🙂

With fall just around the corner and the pandemic still affecting our day to day life, even this fantasy shopping post will be a reflection of our current reality: cozy things, my favorite candles, and of course, some pieces just for fun!

To shop this image, click on the item you’re interested in to be directed to the retailer’s website.

Burberry Bucket Hat

This is the most impractical thing ever but I love Burberry for fall (as evidenced by how frequently I wear my scarf and boots) and this just is fun to me. Likelihood of me ever owning it is 1% but had to throw it in!

Diptyque Baies Candle

One of my favorite candles of all time that I usually buy with giftcards or get for presents because who spends $36 on a tiny candle? Or $70 on the big one??? However, it makes me feel very bougie and smells amazing, so I’d def grab one with my imaginary $1K.

Vote Bracelet

In contrast to the bucket hat, likelihood of me buying this is 100%. Cute. Current. Rather reasonable pricewise at $20.

Waffle Knit PJ Pants

These look absolutely comfy and I want a pair!! I feel like I will need lots more comfy pants to make it through this fall/winter with the pandemic.

Evil Eye Bracelet

I think this is such a cute addition to any wrist stack! I love

Topshop Stitch Sweater

I am so ready for sweater weather! This one looks cozy and I like the unique stitching.

Sleep Shirt

Considering I spend about 50% of my days working from home in my pajamas, this one looked super comfy!

Ruffle Sock Pack

These are so freaking fall meets cottagecore and I am HERE FOR IT.


A classic shoe in so many colors. I am partial to the tan, though!

Knit Throw

We need something to cozy up with on fall nights watching movies and burning candles… this seems like it would do the job just fine.

Spiced Pumpkin Soy Candle

I am a sucker for any fall candles, especially any with the words “spice” and “pumpkin” in them!!!
