If I Could I Would

So I’m not currently shopping, I did way too much emotional purchasing of everything I wanted like 6 months ago, but that doesn’t stop the emails from my favorite stores from inundating my inbox everyday. So let’s play, “Things I would buy if I wasn’t broke and my rent wasn’t about to go up by $383 a month.” Just to make things easier, these pics all came from the J.Crew website. Basically that store is my kryptonite.





How obsessed am I with those mint eyelet cafe capris? It’s probably unhealthy. The purple, mint, and aqua plaid shirt is also incredibly adorable. I have two of the Tippi sweaters currently, and they are wonderful, so obviously I wouldn’t mind adding a few more colors of it to my collection. I’ve worn my Cece flats to death, and I love the green color.





I don’t really own a lot of pink, but I did buy those bright pink shorts at the top last summer and I wouldn’t mind adding a few of these pieces to the closet. Specifically the pink and white check shirt, and that pink mini. I’d say those Sperry’s but I own Toms already that are pretty much the exact same colors.



navy2I am loving all things Nautical right now, my scarf today has anchors and boat wheels on it, so when I saw this stuff I about died. The navy dress at the top right, the navy and white striped blazer, the pencil skirt (which also comes in shorts in that pattern) and silver shoes, want it all. Minus the hat, I don’t do giant hats, I’ll stick to my worn in salt stained Lacoste baseball cap thanks.

Unfortunately the only thing I’ll be adding to my wardrobe in the near future is a new pair of jeans. You see, as I was pulling on my favorite pair of skinny 7’s on Saturday (straight from the wash mind you) I heard the terrible sound of denim ripping. Right, down, the thigh. I knew it was coming, as my go-to jeans off and on for the past 5 years the fabric was thinning, and they were totally worn out. I still mourned the loss of them however, and it became very apparent this morning as I tried on no less than 5 pairs of jeans to find ones that were neither too big nor too small that I need to replace them ASAP. I don’t even like the jeans I had to wear today.



They’re old, and flared, and have weird whiskering, and I have the giant True Religion “U” on my ass. No bueno. So until I win the lottery, I’ll just window shop and mark all the things I would buy if I could. The end.



And I’m Set

So, just as I predicted, I spent yesterday virtually packing on Polyvore.  This is what I’ve come up with so far, except that white sweater with the zippers, I have it in a dark green, not white.

Long Weekend Away
Now, I just need to actually wash said articles of clothing and put them in a suitcase.
Yesterday was abs and shoulders day, and I hate that day because my shoulders are by far the weakest area of my body.  Phase two starts on Monday, get excited everyone!  Once I got home from work the majority of my evening was occupied by shoveling dinner in my face as fast as possible, some wine, and my favorite night of television; Vampire Diaries, Greys, and Private Practice.  I was also trying to decide if I need a new pair of riding boots in my life.  I still haven’t decided if I should pull the trigger and spend way too much money.  We’ll see what happens.
I really have no plans for the weekend, which as of lately isn’t shocking I know, but I don’t want to sit inside doing completely nothing.  Maybe I’ll figure something out, if not it will probably include a lot of Redbox again.  Oh well.  Happy Friday!
