Friday Feature: My Summer Wish List


It’s no secret that I love to shop, and my personal style changes from day to day depending on the season, the weather, my mood, what time I wake up…Seriously, if someone asked me to describe my personal style, there’s no way I could narrow it down to anything specific.  That’s okay!  I mean, that’s what makes fashion fun for me, but it also means I end up bringing stuff home that I might just wear a handful of times before it gets pushed aside to the back of my closet and forgotten.

I have discovered over the past year, that creating a seasonal list helps me tremendously in keeping my shopping in check.  I try to limit my list to items that will go with several different things already in my closet and that can be styled both for work and casually.  It’s really a great tool to weed out those impulse buys, and to be on purpose about watching for sales.

So without further ado, here is my current top 10 list in no particular order (click image for full view):

#1: Via Pinterest-ALWAYS at the top of my wish list!  Maybe next year:)

#2: 6pm.comMint heels because, if you hadn’t noticed, this is my favorite color, and I would wear them with everything!

#3: Charlotte RusseI’m a little obsessed with the wedge heel right now and would love to have a nice pair in cognac; a neutral color, in my opinion, that can be worn with brown or black.

#4: Amazon-See above comment:)  I love the neutral tone to these, but the stripes make them stand out.  Very classy.

Why all the blazers? At my work, capri pants are allowed as long as worn with a jacket, blazer, or cardigan so as to give it a “suit-like” appearance.  I nearly have the cardigan end of things covered, but sometimes I want something with a little more structure, such as a blazer.

#5: Charlotte Russe-Plus, they are a super easy addition to tank tops or dresses that I couldn’t wear to work otherwise.  I love this one with the black and white shown, or I would also wear it with red or orange.

#6: Forever 21-I would wear this navy blazer with khaki or white and gold accessories.

#7: Forever 21-Might as well have a pink one too, am I right?  These definitely come to mind to pair it with.

#8: Kohl’sI have been searching for the perfect pair of white capri pants for about 5 years.  Hopefully, this is my year!

#9: Old Navy-Why do I not have one of these yet!?!  A chambray shirt goes with anything from a sequin skirt and heels to khaki shorts and flip flops.  Love!

#10: Macy’s-a white denim jacket is in the same category with the blazers.  I’ve wished I had one several times recently to wear over a dress or with a skirt.

I have now added at least 5 items in my head that should also be included in this list… What items are you currently craving for summer?  Do you create shopping lists for your closet?
