what i wish i was wearing

If you've visited my blog in the past month, you may remember that I'm not buying any new clothes this month and I'm reevaluating my wardrobe to figure out what is working and what isn't. I've decided that I need to shop more consciously instead of going into stores and browsing mindlessly without a clear idea of what I want/need. There are so many items in my wardrobe that I hate or just "like"and not love, and I want to prevent that from happening in the future. Since I can't go actual shopping, I decided to go online window shopping and put together a wish list of pieces I wanted. 

cream crochet shorts from Zara
How lovely are these shorts? Perfect for hot summer days and I love how they can easily be dressed up or down for day or night.

macrame and chiffon sweater from Zara
I think that this sweater would transition from summer to fall and winter nicely. It seems like it is an airy knit and it has some great detailing.
ByCORPUS jacket
byCorpus denim jacket from Urban Outfitters
I absolutely love this jacket! It is so edgy and cool. The only thing I'm worried about is how much wear I could get out of it since it is so trendy! But I really, really want it :)
dotted peter pan dress from Forever 21
I saw this dress in the latest issue of Lucky and thought is was adorable. They had it styled numerous ways that showed the versatility of the dress. I think it would be perfect for work paired with a cardigan or sweater over top of it. It could also easily transition to the Southern California fall with some knee high boots or tights.
leopard print belt from Old Navy
I have been wearing my blouses tucked into my black skinny cropped work pants the past few weeks in an attempt to look more polished and I have been wishing I had a fun belt that would fit my hips. All of my belts are too small because I usually belt my sweaters around my ribcage and waist. I saw this one in Old Navy this past weekend for $15 and I have a $10 off coupon for there. I may need to go buy it this week. Can't beat a stylish, cute belt for $5!
Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Karlie bag from Nordstrom
This bag is truly a "wish list" item. I have been admiring the Classic Q collection of handbags from Marc by Marc Jacobs for a while now. I like this one because it is classy, can be worn day or night, isn't too trendy where I couldn't wear it for more than one season and best of all, it is a relatively affordable option from that line.

  1. I probably need to do this too. Such a smart idea! Think before you shop. ;)
    And I'm definitely wanting to get my hands on some cute shorts too like those Zara ones!
