My Spring/Summer Wish-list

I am a huge fan of having a fashion wish-list. My Fall/Winter wish-list from last year helped tremendously. I find that wish-list helps me focus on what I need and stops me from making impulse purchases. It’s important to figure out what your personal style is. Once you have a strong sense of what you like and what suits you, you’re less likely to spend money following trends that don't work for you.

I started my Spring/Summer wish-list a few months ago but had to make a few changes. I am halfway done finding and purchasing items on my wish-list so I thought I’ll share the list with you.

1. Pastel skinny jeans (American Eagle skinnies in yellow zest - see them here)
2. A new work bag (J.Crew Tillary tote - see it here)
3. A pair of cap-toe flats (purchased - see my review here)
4. A pair of pointy pumps (purchased - review is coming soon)

{Wish-list item # 5 - H&M denim jacket, Wish-list item # 6 - Kate Spade Gayla sunglasses}

5. A denim jacket (purchased- review is coming soon)
6. A new pair of sunglasses (purchased - review is coming soon)
7. Maxi dresses
8. Something polka dots
9. Longchamp Planete Large Tote
10. Some new (chunky) jewelry

As you can see, items on my wish-list aren’t something out of the ordinary. These are items that I don’t already have in my closet. Of course, money can't buy you style, it’s not what you wear sometimes but the way you wear it.

Readers, what do you wish for this season?

Great wish-list for Spring/Summer. I need to make a wish-list and stick to my wish-list. Unfortunately I always find something else I like that is not on my wish-list.

Great list! I love the shoes!

I got the longchamp planete large tote during bloomingdale's F&F sale and I'm loving it as an everyday bag. Those cap toe flats are really cute! This season, I'm wishing for a pair of colored pants/denim and lots of pretty easy-to-wear sundresses =)

I love your reasons for a wishlist. It's so true- it does help focus your spending. On my list is a pencil dress, aviator glasses, and cigarette jeans.

@Tina I remember your purchase during the Bloomingdale's F&F sale. I hope to be able to score this bag at a decent price during the Nordstrom's half-yearly sale this month.

OH! I didn't know I wanted those sunglasses but now I must have them! They are so cute! Can't wait to see your review.

I'd love to compile a list too. So right that money can't buy you style. Though I'd love to buy a stylist ;). Good luck on the rest of the items!

Great idea to keep a running list through the seasons to avoid buying unnecessary things! Love your finds so far!

Great recap of what you've found so far! Looking forward to seeing your new denim jacket!

I got my denim jacket from H&M's LOGG line 2-3 years ago. I love it! wear it all the time thru spring/summer.

the 1 thing i didn't like about it is that it doesn't have pockets.
