June Goals

June Goals

First, let’s take a look at my May Goals and see how I did. I’m warning you, it’s sad. I’m rationalizing by telling my self real-world May was only 22 days for me, since everything after was wedding weekend and honeymoon.

+Get Married. (Probably? I’m writing this post BEFORE the wedding so I can schedule it ahead of time, so I can’t say for sure. I guess, let’s go with yes.)

+Create to-do lists for wedding planning so I’m not saving it all for the last minute. (I actually think I did okay here. All the big things I had left to do were finished at least a week before, so the final week was just little things).

+Follow a meal plan. (Nope. Failed so bad.)

+Finish new blog design. (I didn’t finish it, but I made a TON of progress! It was hard to get to it much because my priorities had to be wedding, then blog, then new design. And obviously my real job squeezed somewhere in there.)

+Schedule posts and social media for two weeks I’ll be gone. (Yes! I was really worried it was going to go dark for two weeks, which is like two years in social media time. Thanks goodness that didn’t happen).

+Take more frequent walks. (Sadly, this one is a no as well. But definitely next month!)

June Goals

+Follow a meal plan for real. I’m serious this time. I actually wrote the meal plan and shopping list before leaving for the wedding/honeymoon so I can just go grocery shopping without much preparation when we get back. That way we don’t have a week of fast food while we transition back into the real world.

+Take more frequent walks and take Leia to the dog park! My best friend is getting a puppy, so he/she will obviously be best friends with Leia and they can play together at the dog park 🙂

+Relaunch the blog with a new design. I’ve been talking about this relaunch forever, but it’s really happening this month!

+Unpack and do honeymoon laundry in a timely manner. I’m not saying it has to be done the day we get back, but it better not still be there by the time I’m writing my July goals

Hopefully I do a little better this month! What are some of your goals for June?

Fashion Wishlist

These fashion wishlist posts are some of my favorite to write. Each time I find pieces that I absolutely fall in love with. It’s always fun to browse the online stores. Plus, you readers seem to really like them as well! Here are a few items I’m lusting over right now.

Fashion Wishlist 5-7-15

1. You might remember, I used this lace dress in my color crush post a few weeks ago. Dorothy Perkins makes absolutely stunning dresses, and this one is no exception. One of the best parts is that they are always such a reasonable price. This one is just $70.

2. Black blazers become so dark and boring during the summer, so a white blazer like this one would be a great way to brighten up an outfit. This is especially great if you work in a professional setting but want to get away from the stereotypical black.

3. Guys, I’ve been obsessing over this bag for months. I might have even included it in a previous one of these wishlists. The Target near my house has it displayed on one of the first racks when you walk in the store, just taunting me. I actually almost finally bit the bulled and bought it the other day, since I still needed a carry-on for the honeymoon. Unfortunately, there was a more practical and affordable option next to it that I grabbed instead, but someday this beauty will be mine. Really though, it’s only like $35. I’m just stingy.

4. I normally don’t take the plunge into light colored jeans. Really this is just because during the warmer months I virtually never wear pants. Okay, don’t get any funny ideas. I much prefer skirts and dresses when the weather allows. But this pair from H&M might change my mind!

5. For some reason navy and white striped tops like this one keep catching my eye lately. If I’m being honest, I actually almost included like three different ones in this post. Then I thought that would be silly and just included the one. But there are so many cute ones out there!

6. So often on this blog I find a cute item to feature in a fashion post, and then end up featuring it in my next wishlist post because I just can’t get it out of my head. That’s totally what happened with these wedge sandals. What’s even better is that Target has a super similar pair for less than half the price!

7. I find myself featuring sunglasses in a lot of these posts lately. What’s funny is that I don’t really buy sunglasses. I have one pair of aviators that I keep in my car for the drive to work and another pair that I wear out and about that I got…for free…in a cocktail at a bar. But this pair is super fun!

What’s on your fashion wishlist these days?
