Weekly Wishlist

Click to Shop!

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!

Happy Monday! Here’s some of the things I’m currently coveting. I really need a new wallet, and this little Saint Laurent number is basically calling my name. I’m also mulling over getting this wallet, as it’s a little more realistic price-wise, like…$500 more realistic.

Happy Monday! Right now, the main thing I want (need!) is a pair of jean shorts. I don’t know if any of y’all have had a similar quest for an acceptable pair of jorts, but it’s near impossible! They’re either Bermudas fit for church camp, or like seriously trailer-park-short. Part of the problem is that I have this idyllic picture of the perfect shorts in my head, and I’m beginning to think they just don’t exist. Several other bloggers have recommended One Teaspoon for denim cut-offs and I think I’m going to give the above pair a spin! If any of y’all have suggestions on the subject, let me know! Be sure to check out all the other goodies on this little list, because several things are on sale. As you can tell, I’m trying to amp up my summer wardrobe, and everything here would be right at home. Plus, the camera is for documenting it all. I hope your Monday is going well so far, and if not, even more reason to shop.

My New Fave Animal Print

Click to Shop!

Hi y’all, happy Friday! I’m headed to Chicago later this afternoon to see my best friend from college and spend the weekend sketching around the Windy City! If y’all have any suggestions on places to eat/drink/shop let me know! For now, I’ll leave you with this little trend I’ve been into lately. I love most animal prints (except zebra, say no to zebra), but especially this speckled dalmatian/cheetah print. I’ve not been sure of what to call it, as it’s more abstract than straight-up cheetah, but not quite reminiscent of 101 Dalmatians either. Regardless, being a natural design, it’ll fit in with almost any look, plus, it’s a fun way to add some interest and texture to an outfit. What patterns and prints do you gravitate toward? I hope everyone has a great weekend, I’ll meet you back here on Monday! Until then, follow along on Instagram!

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?

Saturday Sales

Hi everyone, welcome back to some great #SaturdaySales. First, I have to talk about this Vineyard Vines maxi dress, which fits in perfectly with this post. Score it for 25% off along with everything else VV, thanks to their Friends & Family sale! Now is also a good time to stock up on t-shirts (college forever). This RAILS LA button down is seasonless and SUCH a great deal right now. You can wear it on chillier nights with white jeans and it can carry you through fall as well. Speaking of white jeans, I’m obsessed with this pair from J.Crew. They fit comfortably and wash SO well. Everyone needs some white denim in their life. These are 25% off and so is this amazing bangle. I’m really into anything marble right now, from entire kitchens to accessories. Don’t forget to check out J.Crew’s regular sale section, too! It’s an extra 50% off. Who doesn’t love a cheeky phone case? I’ve been eyeing this Kate Spade case for a while and just might snap it up due to this deal at Bloomie’s. I’m loving these simple heart earrings from Shopbop, really sweet and easy for everyday wear. Lastly, this coral MBMJ wallet is a great little summer buy. Plus, you can subtly capitalize on the perforated trend. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and happy graduation to so many! Tomorrow, I’ll have a post up on the best grad gifts.
