Fantasy Spring Shopping Spree

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 Smile As much as I try to get away from black and gray, I always gravitate back toward them even in summer.

Do you like to shop? What is on your spring fashion wish list?

    I love sleeveless tops too. Can’t wait until it is warm enough to wear them! You are making me want to go shopping. (And I buy too much black and gray too.)

    I love dresses and skirts too! Whenever it is warm out, you’ll see me in a dress almost every day!

    I absolutely love that dress and I also completely agree that dresses are awesome to wear. I can’t wait until it’s dress season again!

    I’m not much of a shopper, but I do love fashion. I’ve seen those hairpieces in places like Ann Taylor Loft, The Limited, and Forever 21. They’re also much cheaper on Etsy. You just have to be patient and search for them.

    I love shopping. I took a brief peak in H&M today and fell in love with a cute nautical striped shirt. And Anthropologie is the store I would LOVE to have a shopping spree at. I love their dresses, sweaters, accessories, EVERYTHING!

    Cannot wait to break out the flowy sundresses. I also love that black top. Oy, I need to go shopping.

    I feel the same way about dresses in the spring/summer. It’s just so easy to throw one on and go – and no worries about coordinating.

    I need new sandals, my gold ones broke and my shoe-guy said he can’t fix them. I’m coveting a pair of gladiators sandals too..

    embrace short!!
