Can you believe it’s already February 7th?! That means there are only 20 more days left until my plane leaves for Australia. Just think, three weeks from now I’ll be on a plane in the Pacific wondering what time it is. Once you leave Los Angeles and head west your internal clock gets all kinds of messed up.
Sorry for the delay on this month’s Wish List, I’ll try to keep it short and sweet. I have decided to not purchase anything on this list strictly because I purchased a Golden Tote (or two) and spent my clothing budget for the month on that. In the event I should fall into lots of money within the next three weeks, come on Mega Millions, these are the items I will have my eyes on this month.
Loft Maxi Dress: Who doesn’t love a good maxi dress? Even short girls can pull this off. LOFT has petite sizes just for us! To me this dress screams, “wear me while you are walking down the beach in Australia!” Well don’t mind if I do.
J.Crew Factory Scallop Dress: If only I had a job…. The scalloped neckline and hem take this from a simple dress to extra girly and feminine. I imagine pairing this with a pearl necklace, earrings, and nude heels for an office appropriate outfit. J.Crew Factory sells this dress two other colors, yellow and poppy (a bright coral). I also found a similar dress at Ann Taylor LOFT under the JCF price point in lavender.
AE Halter Dress: I am stuck in this weird crazy limbo place where I keep looking at clothes in America for spring knowing that it’s going to be fall in Australia next month. Side note, changing of seasons also makes it incredibly hard to pack. This dress would be perfect for spring in America and later summer in Australia. I love the pattern on it and the fit and flare style.
Athleta Bikini: Ben loves surfing, and is determined to get me on a board. Haha, yeah right! But if I did try surfing the thing I would be more worried about than anything is falling out. Ladies you know what I mean! Out of the top, or taking a spill and losing my bottoms. Athleta is made for athletes and I feel like with this top and cute shorts over grey bottoms I could probably keep on my clothes while taking a spill off a board.
Aerie Lace Bra: Typically I wouldn’t post something like this on my site, that’s getting a little too personal here don’t ya think? But after reading an article on MSNBC I found myself exploring the Aerie website looking for something to purchase to support this company.
So why Aerie? Aerie recently made the decision to stop photo shopping their models, something I wish many brands would do. Although their models are still thin, they have decided to leave in the imperfections and tattoos and showcase the models natural beauty. This is definitely a positive message to the teens and young adults who shop their store and online. I personally think it’s a fantastic idea, and will stand behind this company.
I also love this Aerie Floppy Hat for the beach!
VS Sports Bra: I wouldn’t put this into the same category as the lacy bra from Aerie because this is something that I would wear to the gym. Has anyone tried he VS sports bras? From what I’ve seen these seem to offer support for us bustier girls. I’m hesitant to try, but I’m also intrigued.
Banana Republic: I love, love, love, the look of this jacket with metallic details, perfect spring jacket to be paired with a light colored dress, a nautical stripe shirt and skinnies, or dress it up with a pencil skirt for work. And for all my Alpha Kappa Psi brothers, this jacket is navy blue and gold.
Anthropologie Maxi Dress: Like I said, I love the maxi’s and the stripes on this are just perfect. The vertical stripes will elongate any body shape, paired with the diagonal stripes on top to make your upper body smaller in the waist and larger in the chest. Just gorgeous.
