It feels sort of weird writing about things I want instead of stuff I already own, but here we go. I’ve been dressing like a potato sack all winter to keep warm, and now it’s finally about time to shed all those oversize sweaters. It’s shopping time!
Black skinny jeans with knee cutouts
I own a pair of black skinny jeans already, but they fit horribly. When I first tried them on after ordering them online, I was okay with the fit. But as I wore them, they turned out to be tight along the legs, loose at the hips, and tight at the waist. It’s a problem I imagine plenty of tall and slim girls have with finding good pants.
Anyways, I need another pair of jeans and decided I’ll try out the ones with knee cutouts so I won’t have two of the same thing.
Despite being between 5’6 and 5’7, I love heels. But heels aren’t the best shoe if you’re moving around or on your feet all day.
I fell in love with Stella McCartney platform sneakers when I was working at Nordstrom. To be honest with you, I’m definitely going to find a cheaper alternative. A versatile platform sneaker would definitely add some oomph to your outfit on a day when you actually have to walk.
Sheer top and bralette
I find the style of wearing a bralette (or even a tank top) under a sheer top so cute. I used to think it would only work on mannequins and models, but after I saw it on an actual human being on the street, I decided I have to try it out. I feel like a black bralette is another one of those wardrobe pieces that every fashion gal has to own. It works with a sheer top if just wearing a bra under it is too much. And they look great under oversize tops as well.
It’s such a flirty style to wear on a night out. Plus, it’d keep me motivated to maintain a flat stomach!
Dresses with sleeves
I have a ton of dresses- maybe around 12?? But I only have two dresses that actually have sleeves. My logic is that dresses without sleeves are easier to layer with. But then again, there are days I want to wear a dress without the need for something over it.
I really don’t operate on “summer” or “winter” colors. If I like a certain color, I’d wear it all year round. Clearly I deserve to be burned at the stake in the name of companies selling more clothes.
Faux leather skirt
My love for leather knows no bounds! I do have one faux leather skater skirt, and it isn’t the greatest quality material. For the spring, I’m thinking of a pencil skirt that can be dressed fierce or dressed more professional.
Can we have a moment to send wishes that I’ll find a pencil skirt that won’t turn into a mini-skirt?
Any suggestions or alternatives?
