No, I’m sadly not giving one away or even going on one, but a girl can dream, right? I am at the point in the Boston winter where I am fed up with the very same sweaters and boots that I couldn’t wait to wear in October. After months of sitting around, a couple of illnesses, and marathon training, my pants don’t fit, and I am eyeing up all sorts of fresh new styles.
Unfortunately as someone who’s been working only part time for a few months, I can’t buy any of these things, but I thought it would be fun to take you through my dream list.
1) Dresses. If I could have my way and my weather, I would wear cute dresses every day of the week. Not only are they easy to put on and go, but they are generally a lot more forgiving of a big meal or lack of gym time.
I generally buy my dresses at Marshalls and TJ Maxx; I have gotten plenty of things that I later saw on Newbury Street for way low prices. But if I won the lotto, I would spend a lot more time at Anthropologie buying things like this.
2) Flat sandals. I like heels, but let’s face it. I live in the city and spend a lot of time traveling on foot. Last summer I embraced my shortness and the flat sandal and ended up much happier than if I was trying to hobble around in cute strappy heels. I am loving these gladiator style sandals that I am seeing in stores now.
3) Accessories. Kate Middleton is making hairpieces and fascinators all the rage, but having spent so much time in Ireland, I have been coveting these pieces of wearable art for years. And let me tell you, they are pricey! I check out fascinators and hats every time I visit Ireland and still have not found one under $80 that I like.
4) Sleeveless tops. I generally like my arms, and I love buying lots of sleeveless tops to mix and mingle with jeans and jackets. I especially like finding very inexpensive sleeveless tops at H & M, Target, and the like. It’s a cheap and easy way to have an interesting summer wardrobe!
5) Sweaters. Lots and lots of sweaters to go over above sleeveless tops because somehow I manage to be cold in August.
Looking back at my imaginary shopping spree, I definitely see a theme with the colors I chose As much as I try to get away from black and gray, I always gravitate back toward them even in summer.
