Weekends tend to be a little busier and don’t leave a lot of time to blog. I wanted to choose a couple of “themes” for weekends to keep things interesting.
On Sundays, I thought I’d start with a rendition of a “wish list” of items I’ve been coveting, but maybe are too expensive or I’m waiting on a sale to pull the plug and purchase (always wait for the sale).
On Saturdays, I want to work on “what I wish I was wearing” posts. I’ve been purchasing things here and there to get ready for spring, but haven’t worn anything yet since it’s still the Polar Arctic where I’m currently living. But, how can you resist all the pretty spring colors in stores right now?! (I can’t!). I’ve also got a long, HOT, summer ahead of me (basically forever), so I haven’t felt quite as guilty stocking up on shorts and summer dresses when I see things I love. 🙂
So here goes, Sunday Wish List #1! (links to each item below)
1. Navy blue handbag:
Since I’ve been back in school, I really haven’t kept many handbags in my closet. I would buy a one or two expensive versions a year, and then sell them for a new one each season. It worked nicely since I rarely carried one since my time was spent studying and in class the last few years. Since I’ve recently been traveling more often and time is finally coming to graduate, I’ve been lurking around the handbag section more frequently. I’ve got a few cognac, ivory, black, and now a pink purse added to my collection. But what about navy? It’s definitely a neutral in my book. So, here I am looking for my next handbag!
2. Pink pants:
They speak for themselves.
3. D’Orsay flats:
I have tons of ballet flats and loafers. But, not one d’Orsay flat. ((I’m a late bloomer?))
4. Essie cashmere nail polish
I kinda love Essie. And this new line will be mine!….. eventually. 🙂
5. Striped dress
Just because you can never, ever have enough stripes in your closet.
6. Spring colored vest
J. Crew just released a new lightweight vest to their collection. This one also comes in mint and a light blush color.
7. Maxi dress
Maxi dresses are so perfect in the spring layered with a jean jacket and sandals. Spring around here starts (or never happens) around June 1st, so I will probably hold off on this purchase for a little while.
