Because the weather here has been soul-suckingly-cold lately, I thought I'd bring a little warmth to my blog by posting some lovely spring items that have made their way onto my wishlist. I like to pay attention to the new arrivals around this time because they're probably the options that will be hitting sale around birthday-discount-time for me (Dear June, please arrive faster, love, Katie). Here are a few things I have my eye on:
Make A Wish Skirt
This beauty sure is pretty, and I think it would be a great skirt for spring and summer (and knowing me, fall and winter, ahem). I love the shape, but over $120 for polyester? No thank you. On second cut I'd consider this.
Ria, you are a horrible person for showing me this top! Ruffles, flowers, girliness, and a vintage vibe? I'm in love. The price is too rich for my blood, but maybe with a good sale and a birthday discount I could make this happen. It's backordered till JUNE online, so I'm taking that as a sign and having hope. Foolish, foolish hope.
This just in: I
Oh dress, how you continue to haunt me. I still haven't tried this one on yet. I know that a lot of people don't like it, but Roxy gave it a favorable review, so I'm still holding out hope. I'm crossing my fingers I won't be sized out of this one! (And that it'll stick around for a second cut!)
Also on my wishlist but as-yet undiscovered:
Spring/summer shoes! I have a horrible lack of these in my closet, guys. I really need some flats and heels that I can wear without my tights and that will look cute without killing my feet. If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them! I'm on the hunt particularly for simple but cute, solid color flats, gold or brown sandals, and round toe medium-to-low heels. Comfort is a must; I can't do the zero-support piece-of-cardboard flats or the toe-murdering heels. I want to find something that feels like something you'd wear to walk around a nursing home but looks like something a young scientist might want to wear a few decades before she needs help with her hearing aid. Impossible? Maybe, but hope springs eternal! I'm particularly hoping for these to hit sale! Did I mention I love Mary Janes?
What's on your wishlist for spring and summer?
