Current Fashion Wishlist

Having just thrown a wedding and gone on a honeymoon in Ireland, we aren’t exactly rolling in the dough to go on a shopping spree. I suspect I’ll be taking quite the shopping hiatus for a couple of months so we can recover, but that doesn’t stop be from looking! I figured I’d skip the shopping for a couple of months, clean out the closet and sell a few things I don’t wear anymore, and then be ready to hit the sales in no time!

Fashion Wishlist

1. These shorts caught my eye as soon as I saw them! I’m almost strictly a blue jean-short kind of girl, but these are definitely on my list to purchase this year. Another plus is that I love the fit of American Eagle shorts, so I know these would be some of my favorites! Plus they’re only $30 AND buy one, get one half off.

2. These pants just look insanely comfortable. They would be great for slightly cooler summer days when shorts or a skirt can’t cut it. They look light weight enough that they’d even be able to work in the summer heat. They’re a little more than a like to pay for pants (around $100), but I can budge for something I know I’ll wear a lot.

3. I featured this top from Maurices in my last color crush post, and I just had to share it in this one as well. Maurices has been one of my favorite stores for years, so it’s no surprise that my favorite top right now is there!

4. I love this dress! To be honest, it’s not that practical for me. For me dresses need to be either professional enough to wear to work or casual enough to wear for a lazy summer day. This one doesn’t fit either of those, but I had to add it to the list nonetheless. The price is decent at $50, so I’ll keep it in mind in case we have any events come up!

5. I was never a huge shoe girl. Through high school and college I wore tennis shoes daily when the weather was cold enough to force me to (so like 9 months per year in Wisconsin) and cheap Old Navy flip flops the rest of the year. Then I had one dressier pair of pumps that I would wear to formals, etc. That was about it. It wasn’t until I got my first real job that I started to purchase practical footwear that could be worn in the workplace. I’ve finally built my staple collection enough that I can start to buy shoes that are a little more fun, but less appropriate for daily wear. These shoes are seriously awesome, and I love the color! You also can’t beat that $35 price point!

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!

With the wedding coming up next month (what?!), I’ve been really limiting my shopping. That doesn’t stop me from (online) window shopping though! With all the spring lines out there are so many amazing new pieces and so many sales! Some of my favorite stores have taken their spring lines to a whole new level, and I’m absolutely obsessed. If I weren’t on a mandatory shopping hiatus, here’s what I would probably be buying.

Current Fashion Wishlist

1. I love love love how feminine and summery this dress is! The color and neckline are both amazing. If you’re going to be a guest at any weddings this summer, it would be a perfect option. Plus it’s from ModCloth, so it’s only $65!

2. Pretty much every year I buy one new pair of sandals and then wear the heck out of them all summer. These sandals from Target would be perfect for that. The heel is low enough that they would be comfortable to walk around in, but still obviously gorgeous!

3. I pretty much solidly believe that the best and most stylish work pants come from The Limited. These skinny printed pants are cute and fun for spring, but still professional for an office environment. I am in love.

4. If you’re shopping for office-appropriate clothing on a serious budget, H&M is pretty much the best place to go. They have great professional pieces that are good quality, but easy on the credit card. This top is light and summery and would go great with a skirt or pair of work pants.

5. I’m not a huge statement-jewelry person, but this necklace is gorgeous! If I could have this guy in every color, that would be the only statement necklace I would need.

6. These day it seems like small handbags just don’t cut it for me. I’m constantly having to carry around something bigger to fit everything I need from blogging supplies to extra shoes. This polka dot bag from Target is perfect for just that! It’s perfect for carrying around on the weekend for any extras you might need.

What have you been window shopping lately?

It’s been awhile since I did my last fashion wishlist, almost a month, so I thought I would share some items I’ve been seeing online lately that I’ve been loving. I’ve been limiting my clothes shopping lately since we’re getting close to the wedding, but that certainly doesn’t stop me from looking!

Current Fashion Wishlist

1. Maurices always has a great selection of maxi dresses. This one is perfect for summer for just about any casual occasion. It could be for casual dates, days of running errands, or a backyard BBQ with friends

2. I love this skirt! I would absolutely love to have this in my wardrobe for work. It has a great spring and summer vibe and is definitely professional enough to be worn in the office.

3. These shoes would be a classic for a professional wardrobe. They would go with so many outfits.

4. Could this bag be any more cute?! Target has absolutely stepped up its handbag game lately. Definitely worth checking out.

5. I’ve been staring at this dress a LOT lately. I’ve been thinking of getting it for my bachelorette party. What do you think?

6. I’m finding myself more and more in love with The Limited lately. I think they’ve got the absolute perfect professional wardrobe. This top is simple, but it’s classic and chic.

7. These booties! I’m in love. They’re gorgeous. I must have them.

When it comes to beauty versus fashion, my obsession is definitely with fashion. Yes, I wear makeup everyday. I like learning new makeup tricks and seeing new makeup looks. Yes, I adore lipstick. But it’s not like my love for clothing. I can’t bring myself to by anything more than drugstore makeup, but I’ll devote far more money than I should to clothing. I’ll occasionally browse Pinterest and YouTube for makeup ideas, but I can spend all day online shopping and lusting over outfits on Pinterest. I always have a running wishlist, both in my phone and on a Pinterest board, of clothes that are on my to-buy list.

Today I threw together a few pieces that I’m loving right now and that are definitely on my wishlist!

  • I love sheath dresses. I wish the weather in Wisconsin were more mild all year so I could wear them without having to deal with the not-so-attractive additions of tights and winter boots. This one from H&M is gorgeous and only $25. I’m always happy with the pieces I get at H&M, so I’m definitely excited about this dress.
  • LOVE this jacket! This might be my favorite piece on this wishlist. It’s edgy, but still so chic and stylish and totally work appropriate. I think the peplum is what clinches this one for me.
  • This top from Maurices puts me in a good mood just looking at it. It’s bright and summery and makes me think of warm weather. I could wear it with a skirt or nice pants for work, or pair it with a pair of jeans and rock it on the weekends.
  • These shoes from Top Shop are gorgeous, and at a fantastic price! If you’re in the market for a new pair of pumps, check these out! Then send me a picture so I can seethe with jealousy.
  • I have a problem when it comes to scarves. I love looking at them on other people. I think they’re a great accessory. I love shopping for them and buying them. But I never wear them! At least, not very often. I seriously have to stop buying them. But I’m including this one on my wishlist anyways.
  • Last, but certainly not least! I literally almost bought this jacket at Maurices last weekend. I had it in my hand in the correct size and I was staring at it. But, I didn’t. I decided to hold off. I still have a Maurices gift card in my wallet, so this bad boy may be making it’s way to my closet soon enough anyways.
