Spring Wishlist

Not buying things is a real challenge for me. I see things I want, I think about them, the idea of them shakes around in my brain for a few days, and then I usually pull the trigger. But as I pull my clothes for the warmer months out from under my bed, I've realized I do have a lot of "new" things and I'm making a real attempt at not buying anything new for a little while. Spring is a fun time though. Jackets somedays, bare legs other days. I'm dreaming of a new bathing suit. And I've been itching for a new clutch bag... Trying to stay strong and just admire these things from a far.

Fall Wishlist

In case you missed the memo, it's Fall now. And as much as I didn't want to admit to myself that the seasons were really changing, I'm starting to come around. Change is a great thing. 

Modcloth is one of my favorite shops and they aren't letting me down this season. Plus they have free shipping right now over $50, and let's face it, that's easy to spend. I'm not someone who has winter clothes and summer clothes. I basically just have a lot of clothes, which a few things like a couple pairs of shorts and some sweaters that get put way up in the closet during their off season. Fall to me is all about accessories and layers. I break out my scarf bin, open up my sock drawer for the first time since April and pull out my tights and high socks, and unload my box of boots that lives in the hallway closet in my apartment. I'm all about boots, trying to get into long, oversized sweaters more, living in my denim and leather jacket, and in need of a crossbody bag because I can't handle my usual clutch with a coat on. 

Also, that plaid coat with the fur lapel? Get-On-My-Body-Right-Now-I-Need-You.

This winter has been the winter that never quit. So much snow, so many freezing cold days. Just generally terrible for someone who likes warm weather as much as I do. So now that spring seems finally here to stay, I'm dreaming about sunnies and putting my boots away until the fall. I'm really into dresses with tasteful cutouts recently and I think I might have found the perfect perfume I've been on the hunt for. Even though it's only spring, I've got my heart set on the coming summer. :)

Since we've moved and got a bunch of things settled around the apartment, I've been dreaming of a few new things. Some of these are planned purchases and some of these are just wishlist "maybe-someday" items. Lately I'm loving clean lines with intentional splashes of color here and there. And I'm always on the hunt for new bedding; I just can't seem to find the perfect set. That quilt has been on my mind for months though....
