It’s been a busy week and I’m so happy the weekend is finally here!
I’ve been dreaming of spring and summer fashion already because in NC all of the winter stuff is clearing out already. But, I’m not quite ready for tank tops and flip flops. So I rounded up a few classic items (that I’m wishing for hence the title) that I think will help ease the transition from winter to early spring.
This poncho is probably my favorite item and I know it’s super popular but you can wear it with a long sleeve or short sleeve shirt under it and it’s perfect for the transition.
When I do shop this year I’m trying to be more intentional about my wardrobe and buy classic pieces instead of just grabbing anything that’s on sale. The blazer and peplum top are perfect.
I always seem to have a bag problem and I’ve been coveting a sturdy back that doesn’t fall over when it sits on the ground. It also needs to carry my 8 1/2 x 11 inch day planner and this bag from the Gap could be the perfect fit. I love the cognac color too!
Three words for you: Chic. Jogging. Pants. I mean who came up with this brilliant idea? I’m dying to try a pair and I love these sequin ones!
The striped jersey dress is a no brainer. Wear it with tights and tall boots now or just with ankle booties and a scarf in the early days of spring.
These slouchy ankle booties are too cute and I love them because my longer skinny jeans fit down in them without having to roll them up. I found a pair on clearance at Off Broadway but missed out on my size :(
And, I can’t help but love a pom pom beanie to get me through the end of winter…I say that hopefully! I think the beanie is the new scarf…at least for me!
Oh and who knows, Weekend Wishing may turn into a weekly series! I guess it fits because I usually do more wishing than actually buying but I can’t pass up a great deal from time to time!
