W I S H L I S T /// Wardrobe Ideas for a New Year

Happy Humpday!

I am not one for new year's resolutions, but I always make a couple mental check lists for things I would like to focus on or improve over the next year. I guess that sounds exactly what a resolution is, but I don't share it with anyone and quietly tick things off over the year. Well, this year, and in this post, I am going to share a few things I would like to add to my wardrobe over the next year. These are almost
all inspired by other women, and I will share the photos that made me decidedly add them to my list.

This year, I want to buy less, but buy better quality. Let's see how this goes :P 

1. White Converse shoes
Who'da thunk? I just like how they can ground an outfit and keep it casual.

2. Casual nude pumps
These are worn by none other than Arielle of Something Navy. She is the shoe-and-outfit-blogger queen, and she makes a convincing argument that you can't go wrong with classic, nude, patent pumps. So chic and effortless, non? Her color story in the photo also helps.

3. Good quality, ankle length jeans
I am 5'4 and frugal (kind of cheap). I hate having to spend more than $30 on jeans, so I dont. That doesn't mean I can't tell that I would be more confortable in a better grade of denim. And infact, it is not so much the denim itself that I want: it is the cut and the construction. Waistbands that fold and don't have strength drive me nuts!

4. A leather bag
Truthfully, I already have one. But it is more on the utilitarian side. I want something chic that will be a statement in itself. This is easier said than done, because I have been looking for about a year now. And I don't want a Michael Kors. Call me crazy

5. Leather trouser, or good quality PU trousers
Pants like this can just tie any look together and will never go out of style. See what I am going for here? 


6. Comfortable, cross front blouses .... to go with said leather pants
I think the below image sums up these two desires perfectly. The blouse makes any outfit more feminine and put together.
