This post is taken pretty much directly from Jessica! I saw her post on items that she’s looking for in her own wardrobe and have been thinking about it ever since. Mine are all short-term goals, as I haven’t evaluated my wardrobe well enough to know what items I should be looking for long-term. I’m not quite that organized.
Recently, I’ve begun my search for plain shirts that are good quality. Until now, I’ve always gone for Victoria’s Secret’s plain vee neck shirts, because they are very flattering and soft. But I no longer live in a place where getting those shirts are feasible. Also, the shirts were very, very thin, so I would hope for something a bit sturdier. I recently bought a plain green shirt from Penney’s (Primark) and so far am in love with it. But I doubt it will last very long – for €3.50, I don’t expect much!
I bought myself new ankle boots in December while I was back in the States for Christmas. I’m very picky about my boots – no heel (or a very minimal heel), black, pointed toe, only up to my ankle, no fringe, no laces, simple design….a lot of boots do not meet my requirements. However, my old boots are very rundown from my recent travels and a hole has recently begun developing on the side of the boot. This is a bit more of a pressing issue that I will need to fix fairly soon.
Now that spring is on its way, I am finding that my winter coat is no longer as comfortable. I simply get too hot. It is also not super waterproof. I am on the hunt for a lightweight, waterproof jacket with a hood. I have not been looking very hard, to be fair, so I’m sure something will show in the near future.
That’s pretty much all I’ve been looking for recently. What about you? Are there holes in your wardrobe that you need to fill?
Or if you know any shops that would be an ideal place to find any of these items, please let me know! 🙂
Technically, this isn’t my outfit today. I actually wore this last Sunday, but I thought it was cute and wanted to share it with you guys!!!
I went to help my friend with his bees last Sunday and so this felt appropriate. 😛
Jumper: Target // Jeans: Old Navy // Flats: Payless
I’m not usually one to do Outfits of the Day, but I thought I looked especially cute and really had to share with you guys!
I hope that’s a good enough picture so that you can see the outfit!! It was a bit of a dreary Monday and I felt like looking cute! I hope everyone had a nice Monday!
Top: Walmart // Cardigan: Penney’s (Primark) // Skirt: Ross // Tights: Target
And it’s a beautiful day out! So I put on an old (but fun) tank I have and suddenly, I’m playing with makeup again! It’s fun to play with bright colours that I don’t get to wear to work! This is also my first look where I’ve successfully incorporated blue eyeshadow. (Blue eyeshadow is a bit intimidating, to be honest.) I sent a selfie to my lovely friend Jessica and she immediately suggested a style post! Not a bad idea, especially since I’ve been so terrible at posting.
In other news, work is slowly becoming less crazy for me, so I’m hoping that means I’ll be able to post more. Hopefully. I have a lot of ideas for posts, but never seem to make the time to write them up. I really should work on that. 😛
Anyway, on to my style!
The whole outfit. (Excuse the house slippers!)
Hopefully a good look at the colours.
