Greetings on this icy Tuesday morning! Our schools have another 2-hour delay today so I’m getting a slow start this morning. How are you faring so far?
Today I decided to go window shopping and take you along. I haven’t done a post like this in a while, but I thought you might like to see what I’m shopping for right now. If we ever defrost around here, I’ll head to the mall for a Shop With Me post, but for now, this will have to do!
P.S. I’m open to suggestions for the rest of the week! I do want to bring Fight The Frump back, but I haven’t come up with a good FTF topic to address. I can do more 5 Favorites… anyone got requests for that? And let’s see, what other topics are always popular? Let me know what you want to see!
Meanwhile, here’s what’s on my wish list at the moment.
My Current Wish List
#1. white loafers // I think I’m going to bypass the white booties trend this year, although I’ve been drooling over these for weeks. They’re more than I want to spend on what may be a passing trend, so I’ll keep looking and maybe try a pair next year.
I do want white loafers for spring, however, so I’m trying to decide which ones to try. I love how Helena pairs them with shades of grey and blush pink in this chic outfit. Hers are well out of my price range, but I’m looking at this Sam Edelman pair, and Free People has an under $100 version that is cute too.
I’m actually debating ordering my beloved Mika Mules in the white leather because I already know I love them and can walk in them. My no duplicates rule doesn’t extend to shoes, although I still would rather have a different style than what I already have in my closet if at all possible, so I ordered the Sam Edelmans to see how they look and feel on.
#2. leopard mules // Because I don’t have enough leopard shoes already. Ha! But seriously, how fun are these leopard mules? If I thought for a second I could keep them on my feet, I’d order them. They would be so cute with skinny jeans and black or blush tops this spring. I’m going to keep my eye out for something that looks more walkable.
#3. sock booties // I have my eye on these booties or something similar because they pair well with the cropped straight jeans that are trending (see below.) I just can’t decide between the grey and the black.
#4. Madewell Surplus Jacket // I need another utility jacket like I need a hole in the head, but this one is really calling my name for some reason. Maybe it’s just because it makes me think spring might be around the corner somewhere… I know, dream on!
#5. colorful trench // Speaking of spring, I have a classic grey trench that I like a lot, and I have a bright pink one that is fun but sometimes it’s a little much, so I’m thinking this red trench at Talbots would be a classy addition to my spring coat wardrobe.
I’ve really been trying to upgrade my outerwear lately. I’ve always seen coats as more of a necessary evil than a great fashion accessory, but now I’m realizing that I was seriously missing out! Having a couple of pretty spring jackets to rotate may be the way to survive March and April — two of the most fickle months of the year in these parts.
I’m also really drawn to these red driving moccasins, but they don’t get the best review. Of course, it’s only one so who knows… does anyone have these?
#6. Urban Decay Eye Shadow Primer Potion // I’ve been wanting to try this since Kelly listed it among her Favorite Things, so today I ordered it. I’ll let you know how I like it!
#7. Tweed Button Tab Skirt // I actually already ordered this but I haven’t tried it on yet. I have high hopes that I can figure out a way to style it because I think it’s super cute. Skirts are hard, though, and I’m too short-waisted to tuck in my top, so we’ll see what I can come up with.
#8. Levi’s 501 Skinny Jeans // Levi’s is making some sort of heroic comeback because every fashion blogger seems to be wearing them. I keep scratching my head because while Levi’s are always something of a classic, they haven’t exactly been cutting edge for a very long time, but somehow they’ve done it. Someone in their marketing department should get a serious end of year bonus, that’s all I’m sayin’.
I want to try some of the straight cropped denim styles with ankle boots and loafers, and this pair of jeans in particular caught my eye. Unfortunately they don’t have my size. Boo to the hoo. I’m going to keep looking. Oooh, here’s another option. In fact, I just ordered those. I’ll keep you posted!
#9. LOFT Refined V-Neck Tunic Sweater // Somehow this didn’t get into my graphic. Oooops! I’m interested to see how this tunic looks on. I love a good v-neck, and this one seems like it would be flattering. I’m not always a fan of tunics, but if they’re slenderizing, they can be cute with jeans or leggings. The side slits are always helpful, and this one has that feature.
I’m waiting for this to go on sale, and then I’ll order it. Or better yet, I’ll head over to the mall one day and do a LOFT try-on sesh and look for this. I’m liking the grey or navy in particular, but the yellow is kind of fun for a change.
