I thought it would be appropriate to share what is currently on my shopping list in terms of clothing since I’ve shared my reading list and beauty list this month. Like most seasons, I have a lot of things I want to add to my wardrobe, but I am trying to only add things that I don’t have, or that are more seasonally appropriate. I’ve narrowed it down to the following five items.
Skirts. I have a good collection of skirts, from the basic black pencil skirt to a beautiful pink lace one with tulle (my nephew says I look like a princess every time I wear it), but one thing I am currently missing is a good black and white striped one. Thankfully this is on trend right now, so I can likely find one in any store. Currently my favourites are this one, this one or this one (which I mentioned in my Spring Fashion post a while ago).
Dresses. When it comes to spring and summer, I love wearing dresses. I’m a big fan of maxi dresses, and have quite a few that I wear on the regular, but I am looking to add some pretty floral or other patterned midi dresses to my closet. I really love this one from Modcloth and feel like it could definitely be a great one past spring and summer — with tights and a cute cardigan it would be perfect for fall. I also love this beauty and this one too.
Pants. I’ve decided that this will be the year that I step out of my comfort zone when it comes to my pants. I usually just stick to my jeans and black pants and assume that any of the pretty colours or patterned denim wouldn’t look great on me. But, this time I am on a mission to find a fun pair that will liven up my casual looks. I’m a big fan of these polka dot ones, these blush toned ones and these floral print jeans.
Shoes. Although my husband would disagree, I could definitely use a new pair of shoes. I have been gravitating towards a nice pair of white chucks because I’ve been seeing them everywhere, and they would give any outfit that cool, fresh spring vibe. I have my standard nude wedges that I wear basically every week to church, but I would definitely love either a black pair, or just a pretty pair of sandals for every day.
Tops. Finally, I need some new tops. I recently did a clear out of our closet and got rid of a lot of tops that either didn’t fit my style, didn’t fit in general, or I hadn’t worn in ages. This spring and summer I’ll be looking to add some fun tops, like this one with a bicycle print or this macaron graphic tank, and pretty ones like this crêpe top.
