Somehow it's already time for another monthly wish list post! I'll share a dedicated post on my shopping strategies sometime soon, but I am such a planner when it comes to shopping! I plan out what I'm going to buy each month based on my budget and things I need and want (I try to balance the two). I love doing these posts because they're a great format to show things I've recently purchased, am about to buy, or am simply loving! I can always see themes emerge from these posts and the ones this month are: denim + white, and soft neutrals with subtle prints and details.
Most of you know that I've been on the hunt for the perfect distressed skinny jeans for ages. I finally the great pair pictured above and they'll be on the blog soon (I needed to exchange for a smaller size, hence the delay on an outfit post)! I've also tried a bunch of denim jackets the last few months, all trying to stay under the J.Crew price tag but having the same look. I just purchased this jacket from LOFT and absolutely love it! It's extremely flattering, and has some stretch so you don't feel like you're stuck in a straightjacket. The only piece left: finding the perfect cutoff shorts! I want a higher-waisted pair that has a bit of an inseam (no booty please). I've found a couple of ideal pairs at a higher price point (like these), but nothing at a lower price point yet. The hunt continues...
I'm actually trying my hardest not to buy any shoes this month (quite a difficult task). However if I were to buy some, I would buy some leather peep-toe mules and/or some chic lace-up sandals.
Rompers, Coverups, etc.
I used to wear rompers all the time before they were super mainstream, and then haven't bought many the past few years. But, I'm loving them again and am looking for a couple of effortless rompers for our upcoming vacation! I love this super affordable H&M option in both the solid black and black/white print! I've also been casually looking for some coverup options! This little tassel dress would be adorable over a bikini, and I'm loving the idea of beach/lounge pants.
I've already made the above scarf mine and it's fantastic. So soft and light with subtle tassel details and an interesting print - making it the perfect summer scarf! I've been trying to decide on a new straw beach/pool bag (my current pool bag is old and embarrassing - ha), and naturally fell in love with this one and this one, which are both out of the budget right now. I actually really love this simple woven bag from H&M (and the $15 price tag), so I think I'm going to pull the trigger! Jewelry-wise... I discovered The Fifth Watches recently, and am obsessing over this blush + rose gold watch on a daily basis. I will make it mine by the fall. I also discovered Lydell NYC last week, and am loving their jewels! This stone bracelet is on its way to me and I can't wait to wear it!
