Spring Wish List

11

Sorry for all the silence over here...life has been busy, busy, busy! This past weekend, Ben and I went on a mini-vacay and I didn't touch my laptop all weekend long. It was awesome...but of course, now the house is a huge mess and I feel like I'm way behind on the week. I'll be honest, sometimes I feel like my plate is way too full, and I wonder if I should let go of the blog and just live a "normal" life where I can take a weekend off, stress-free. But I don't want to give up this blog! In fact, whenever I skip a few days, I always miss blogging, which is a sign to me that it's something worth keeping up. So anyways...that's where I'm at. Besides being super busy and a little overwhelmed, I've also been itching to get some new things for spring. The weather changing always triggers that urge to shop! How are you all doing??? Tell me about your wish lists, both the stuff you can actually buy and the stuff you can't. Because while I do really want everything on this list, let's be honest...my real wish list has more to do with life goals than it does with dresses and shoes.

Spring Wish List

1. A floral phone case: I still like my current phone case, but I'm feeling like I want another option to switch it up with. I love how this one is partially transparent, so you can still see the phone itself (and of course, anything Rifle Paper Co. does is on point).
2. The cutest white lace dress: I was looking for a dress to wear to Ben's sister's wedding in April when I stumbled across this beauty. Obviously, I can't wear it to the wedding (white lace?! that would be bad)...but I still kind of want it. I feel like this would be perfect for our Europe trip!
3. New sandals: Every summer I wear my sandals to death, so I definitely need a new pair this year. These ones would go with lots of different outfits!
4. A watermelon bag: Umm, TOTES ADORBS, right? Plus, it's a cooler so it's pretty much perfect for summer.
5. A cute striped tee: I can't decide if I like this color better or the ivory/navy version. Maybe I need both! It looks like the perfect tee.
6. Slip-on sneakers: I've been loving shoes without laces lately, and these sneakers are sooo cute. I kind of want the leopard ones too.
7. Another cute dress: This one, I could actually wear to the wedding...and I feel like it's versatile enough to wear to work or on the weekends, and in any season. Should I get it?
8. Bright Bazaar book: Last but not least, I've been meaning to get this book for awhile. I saw it in a store the other day and flipped through a few pages...it looks GOOD! I definitely need to add it to my collection.

That's my list! I know, there's not a lot of "home" things on there (basically none, unless you count the book). But don't worry, I have more home inspiration and projects coming atcha soon!

What would you get from this list, if you were me?

    Don't worry it's really good and extremely healthy
    to have a blog-off every once in awhile ;)
    And what a great spring wish list! Loving the
    sandals and of course the watermelon bag!!

    I hear you....I was blogging daily for a while, and made a decision at the new year to go for more of a slow blog. As I'm growing and learning and starting new projects, I found that it just made sense to blog a little less. Instead of 4-5 posts per week, it's more like 2-3, and maybe I lost some readers, probably not, it just feels less stressful. But the thought of stopping altogether just isn't what I want either. I think you're doing great! You need to take that time to truly unplug. I'm planning a trip in May and usually I would have a bunch of scheduled posts, but I'm planning on NO scheduled posts, no email, no nothing. Just truly living in the moment of the trip and not worrying about anything else! Oh! by the way, love your spring picks! I'm antsy for new dresses and strappy sandals myself! other than things I can buy, I have some spring goals to get better at my new fave hobby: modern calligraphy! it's all I want to do anymore after I put my daughter to bed! practice makes awesome, right?

      YES, love that. I agree, it's so good to truly unplug and just enjoy life sometimes (especially on vacations!). Modern calligraphy sounds like such a fun new hobby!

    The Pina dress is on my wish list too! I'm waiting (impatiently) for it to go on sale. :)
    • Posted by Aileen on Wednesday, March 11th, 2015

      Totally! They had dresses 20% off last week, but I think that might be over. I'm sure there will be another sale soon!

    I would say definitely get the dress :). That phone case is also lovely.
    • Posted by Aileen on Monday, March 16th, 2015

      Yay!!! I'm keeping an eye out...as soon as it goes on sale, I'm going to snap it up :)

    I got a new phone + rifle case for my birthday...floral lace (transparent) I'm in love! I'm with you on blogging, I've slowed things down a bit but can't imagine stopping completely. xo

      Yay! Maybe we'll be case twins soon :) And I'm glad to hear that, regarding blogging...it's always nice to hear from other people who are in the same boat. I think slow blogging (and enjoying it), is much better than trying to crank out content and losing the love for it. It's a good sign that we don't want to stop!
