WEEKLY WISHLIST

Click to Shop!

Hi! Today, I thought I’d share another #weeklywishlist because, well, I haven’t done one in a while. Also, with the holidays justtt around the corner [eyeroll], my wishlist is getting quite lengthy.

Booties: I’m kind of on a bootie kick right now (wow that sounds like a Zumba move, I hate myself). I’m definitely gravitating towards a bootie/chelsea boot moreso than ballet flats these days. Maybe this means that for once in my life I can say I’m practical. I love leopard details, especially when peppered into an all black ensemble, it adds a pop of something while still being neutral. They’re Madewell, but I was only able to find them at Shopbop. Sizes are dwindling, so I might need to just bite the bullet and snap them up.

Earrings: These Loren Hope statement studs are such a fun little addition for fall. I like how they pack a punch, but aren’t giant boulders weighing down my head. Win-win if you ask me. Really though, I don’t have a pair like them and that rich merlot color is just the best.

Sweater: Don’t mind me, I’m just continuing my current obsession with cable-knit. Carry on.

Primer: This line-item is up for debate because I’m not quite sure what to look for in an eyeshadow primer. I just emerged from another decade, apparently, and don’t have one. I’ve heard great things about this one, from Urban Decay, plus it has some anti-aging magic. If anyone has any other recommendations I’d love to hear them!

Loafers: If a ballet flat and a driving moc had a baby, it might kinda look like these little gems from Kate Spade. What more could I ask for?

PJs: I feel really aggressive wanting these Christmas-y pajamas, like yes – it’s barely November, but think of all the lounging! Loungewear is important y’all, and how can you not love those little Santa gnomes? Also, this plaid pair is a must!

Pants: These Victoria Beckham pants are fabulous. I’m always a fan of gingham, especially in black and white. It’s so chic and stands in a definite contrast to the classic picnic table print. I would love these topped by a chunky knit or all buttoned-up. Also here.

Watch: Not to be trendy, but I’ve been eyeing this Daniel Wellington watch for a while now. Though I love a good “boyfriend watch,” sometimes those oversized timepieces look gaudy as hell. Not to mention, I feel like they overpower my wrist. I like how this watch has that really large face, but the thinner band tones it down.

Sunglasses: I tried these Prada beauties on at the airport Sunglass Hut a week or so ago and I can’t stop thinking about them. I don’t have a pair of sunnies in this light tortoiseshell, which means they’re an obvious necessity. I’m like kidding but also not…

Tray: Who doesn’t love a little crown motif?

Take the edge of your Monday like I did, with a little online shopping. I hope y’all had a great Halloweekend!

Hi babes! Back in action with another weekly wishlist, of course. Once again, fall/transitional pieces have taken over. I’ll miss you, summer. It’s actually been sort of chilly the past couple days and I’m getting anxiety for winter. Cue another jacket and cozy knit (men’s) tee for my troubles.

I keep hearing rave reviews about the Beauty Blender and I really want to try it out for myself. Have any of y’all used one? Last night, I spent a considerable amount of time watching Youtube tutorials, so I’m pretty much an expert now (no). It’s probably best I just take the plunge and order it, plus, Amazon has a nice little deal right now ($16!). I’m also in the market for a decent lip pencil. I’ve never worn lip liner before, but with red lipstick and my super fair skin, I can’t really get away without it. Does anyone have a good recommendation? Charlotte Tilbury seems to be the “it” make-up right now, but I really have no idea what I’m doing. Not tryna look like Kylie or anything, so tell me what’s up in the realm of lip pencils.

Recently, I discovered a void in my life (wardrobe) and realized a pretty, ladylike handbag was the only thing that could fill it. Seriously though, I really don’t have a structured, “formal” handbag, dah-ling. When looking for a new bag, I always head towards cavernous totes or little crossbodies, but nothing in between. This Zac Zac Posen bag is what dreams are made of, seriously. It just looks so proper and expensive but it really isn’t too pricey for a bag of it’s size/quality. That said, it’s absolutely still an investment piece. I’m also obsessed with this version, but didn’t feature it above because there’s only one left. Someone snap it up! Tortoiseshell heaven y’all. This similar shopper is on MAJOR sale and would be great for the office!

For fall, I’m renewing my obsession with Del Toro smoking slippers and just how…obnoxious they are? The pair above are obviously very tongue-in-cheek but I think it’s fun and if anything else, a conversation piece. This pair is a tad more reserved, and who doesn’t love a good emoji? Another fall fave on my radar is the classic (read: basic, I’ll own it) Burberry quilted jacket. I picked one up on sale in high school and it’s been on repeat ever since. So yeah, six years later, you could say I want an upgrade, please. This red delivers, so I better start saving haha.

What have you been eyeing lately? I hope you’ve had a great day so far, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Friday! So maybe I should rename this the “biweekly” or “monthly” wishlist, but that just doesn’t have the same ring to it. First on my priority list is a pair of Nike Roshes. I used to be fundamentally opposed to black sneakers (sneakers…? I literally don’t know what to call them…tennis shoes? Everything looks weird typed out), but I’m going to branch out for these babies. I like how Roshes in particular have been adopted by the stylish set and are more often seen dressed up rather than at the gym. I plan to pair them with leggings and a Rails flannel or [if I was edgy] a leather moto jacket. I’m also particularly obsessed with Chanel Eau Vive. Normally, I shy away from Chanel perfumes as they’re too flowery/powdery, but this new scent is really light and citrusy. I’m also dying for this Cupcakes and Cashmere pink coat. It reminds me of Jackie O or Barbie (similar icons, no?), and I think it would be so fun to bring a pop of color to my fall wardrobe. I hope y’all have a fab Friday! I’ll be back tomorrow with a nice little roundup of #SaturdaySales!

So I’m clearly in a very Fall mood these days. Sweaters, coats, and comfy tees for layering are definitely all on my radar right now. I’ve mostly been “window shopping” or I’ll fill my shopping bag online and then just leave it after realizing the total is into the thousands. I did, however, purchase a couple things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I linked them in the little widget below if you’re curious. The red Tory flats above are included in the sale as well, so if you’re in the market, go grab these (they come in black and gold, too!). I hope everyone’s week is starting on a high note! Check back here tomorrow!

Weekly Wishlist: #NSale

Long time no see, ya’ll! I took a week or so off after July 4th to just kind of enjoy summer a bit. I’ve been frolicking around Madison, shopping, and working this past week, but I’m back with some fun things planned for the next few days. First up is the Weekly Wishlist, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale edition! Everyone touts this sale as the best of the year and that’s no joke, plus it’s prime time to stock up on fall essentials (jeans, boots, coats). The sale is open only to cardholders until the 16th, but I would definitely recommend applying for a card if you don’t already have one. You can even be a peasant, like me, and get a Nordstrom debit card. Apply here. Anyway, here are my sale picks! It’s seriously all I can do not to snap up all of this stuff right now, but I think my bank account would audibly cry out in pain…whoops. Happy shopping!

Hi! Here’s what’s on my wishlist this week, you know the drill. While most of this stuff has to go on the back burner (aka I’ll just dream of it for a while and then concede working retail doesn’t pay for Chloe bags…), the wallet and Chelsea boots are more realistic/practical. I’ve been in the market for a simple yet interesting wallet. I like that this one from Marc by Marc Jacobs almost has a clutch-like appeal, setting it apart from the basic zip-around continental wallet I’ve been schlepping around. As of late, I’ve also been in the market for some black flat booties. Sure, it’s barely summer, but you could say I’m pregaming for fall. What have y’all been eyeing lately? Stop back here tomorrow for some July Fourth inspiration!

Hi! I hope everyone is surviving Monday! Lately, I’ve been in a really spend-y mood and I’ve been online shopping a little (a lot). Most recently, I purchased this basic black cross body, and finally: a Tory for Fitbit wrap bracelet. Add my Chicago weekend to the tab and yeah, I need to stop spending. I’m trying to keep my wishlist light, but here’s a few things that have caught my eye this past week!

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine in Chicago, and I’ll be recapping that in tomorrow’s post. For now, unwind before bed with some retail therapy. Several of these things were inspired by what I couldn’t afford to buy while shopping around the past few days. Life is expensive y’all, and so is Italian leather. I’m wrapping up my evening with some tea, as it takes some time to recover from such a great weekend, so I’ll meet y’all back here tomorrow!

Welcome back y’all, happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday weekend! The Weekly Wishlist is a day late, you could say I took Memorial Day off too. I’ve been a little romper-crazed lately. As y’all know, I recently acquired a floral Yumi Kim and I also recently just bought a plain black little number from BCBG. The Hawaiian shirt inspired romper above is next on my list, though I should probably chill out because really, how many rompers does one need? Moving on, I love horn-y (lol) jewelry, it’s so easy to incorporate into any wardrobe, and the price is definitely right on this necklace. The navy dress is from Elaine Turner and it will be mine once I secure funding. It’s so simple and easy, I love dresses that you can just throw on and go. I’ve been truly obsessed with these Aquazzura lace-up flats for too long, but the price tag is a bit of a deterrent for someone who just works retail. These flats from Boden offer a similar look plus they’re a color ripe for summer. They’d pair quite nicely with the Rory Beca print dress that I’ve also been eyeing. As you can probably tell, anything bright and summer-y is right up my alley these days. I actually pulled the trigger and ordered these Lisi Lerch tassel earrings. They’re huge and ridiculous and I cannot wait until they arrive at my doorstep! They’ll be a great addition to any outfit, as turquoise is basically a neutral this time of year. Lastly, I’ve been on the hunt for a simple, black cross-body. All my years of life and I never found one that was to my liking until now. It’s only $198 so I’ll probably end up taking the plunge with this guy (cue the wedding bells). I love the envelope style, plus it’s actually quite roomy for a cross-body bag! What’s on your wishlist this week?

Weekly Wishlist: Pink Slip

Click to Shop!

Happy Monday! This week’s edition of the #WeeklyWishlist is sort of themed around pink/blush-y tones, I guess. Basically, throughout each week, I write down/bookmark things I want and then put them together on Sundays. Sometimes a theme surfaces and I run with it, random or otherwise. Anyway, I was feelin’ a lot of pink stuff this time around. I’ve wanted this Jonathan Adler pillow for sometime, because pretty much anything with an “E” on it gets me going. Plus, in life, you can never have too many throw pillows. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. I know I’m super late to the party on this one, but I’ve also been wanting the Urban Decay Naked3 palette forever. With summer just around the corner, I’ve been gravitating towards natural, effortless makeup, and I think this would fit the bill. If any of y’all have it, I’d love to hear some reviews! Now, this giant inflatable flamingo might seem superfluous, but I think it’s the cutest thing. Since last summer, we’ve all seen the inflatable swans floating all over Instagram, but the flamingo takes the cake in my book. I don’t even have a pool, so I shouldn’t be allowed to want this as much as I do, but if you have a pool, this is a summer must have! Another must have, just for life, is a pair of Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals. I’ve featured this shoe before in another pattern, but I keep coming back to this easy nude color. There’s literally nothing they wont go with. I’m definitely saving up for these beauties. As always, click to shop the items I mentioned, and everything else. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
