Every two months or so, I compile a few wishlist items for my wardrobe in an effort to guide my spending. I’d like to think that this strategy helps me shop for items that fulfill a specific “need” in my closet rather than for just pieces that happen to strike my fancy.
For this rendition, I don’t have a whole lot in mind, given that we are still recovering from the excess of the holiday season. That being said, the following are a few accessories that would be nice to have sometime in 2017.
black crossbody bag
We actually traveled quite a bit this past fall: a Labor Day trip to Massachusetts, a wedding weekend in Chicago, and an extended stay in Maryland for Thanksgiving. I didn’t particularly want to lug around my diaper bag everywhere for all those excursions, so I used my tan crossbody bag. I thoroughly enjoyed the convenience, but I kept wishing I had the same bag in black. Enter: this foldover crossbody bag from BP. It comes in a few other fun colors too for those of you who are less boring than I am!
pearl stud earrings
By far, the most worn piece of jewelry in my possession is my pair of pearl stud earrings. Clearly, pearls are pretty timeless, so it’s no wonder that they’re my go-to earrings. I’ve been thinking it might be nice to change it up now and then with a slightly larger pair with a hint of embellishment. I like these Kate Spade ones, so I might grab them the next time there’s a sale going on.
Keds recently sent me a birthday coupon, and I’ve been perusing their site quite a bit as a result. I’m very tempted by these simple, leather sneakers. I kind of love all four colors, but I’m leaning toward the cognac or black. They would be so perfect paired with jeans or even one of my many pairs of ankle pants!
What’s on your wishlist these days?
