Seasons change and I
need want alltheclothes.
While I love all the brights and fun patterns that will start popping up soon in all the stores, I am pulling back on spending because Eric and I are re-doing a house after all. BUT...there are a few items on the list that have been on the list for more than a year that I've given myself a pass to purchase if I find...haha.. (I'm an attorney. I can make a rational case for most things. It is what it is.)
So what am I looking for that I feel like I look for every year?
1. Two words: white.jeans.
I refuse to spend an arm and a leg on a clothing item that I (1) can't wear to work except casual Fridays and (2) can't wear for a super long time because of the silly rules about white but also b/c Tulsa gets HOT in the summer. Nobody wants to be in jeans in mid July. Trust me.
So I remain on my jeans quest. White skinny jeans...preferably under $100...that are thick enough to not see the pockets through them (blech) and long enough to be sort of ankle length on my 5'7 frame. Picky? Maybe. Oh and they need to be cut so they don't make me look 40lbs heavier than I am. What is it with poorly cut white jeans that can make you look so bad?! Eek.
2. A cobalt blue dress. Easy enough right? WRONG.
I love blue so much! I want a cute, classy cocktail type dress that's cobalt. But honestly... this is probably more about finding the dress itself. I feel like it's hard to find a cute, classy age appropriate dress in your early 30s...for like a wedding event or professional cocktail party. I feel like I see tons of stuff that's too frumpy or too skimpy. Meet me in the middle, designers! And make it blue. K thanks.
And what else am I keeping an eye out for?
1. Cropped fitted chinos in fun colors.
2. Mara Hoffman's swim line. Why are her adorable suits so expensive?! I feel like other brands are starting to copy her styles and I'm more than happy to pay less for a copied version...haha..
3. Pretty maxi dresses. I mean, I always want pretty maxi dresses so this isn't exactly news.
Anyway...random rants on this hump day. Anything anyone else is watching for this spring?
