Spring and Summer Shopping Wish List

April 02, 2016

It's been a while since I last went shopping.  The last time I bought clothes was in early January after Christmas.  I made a promise to my husband that I would slow up on my shopping.  Having a new baby isn't cheap, plus I'm not receiving my full pay while I'm on maternity leave, so that has definitely taken a toll on my spending.  However, with the weather warming up, I'm definitely getting the itch to do a little shopping. 

Since spring feels more like summer in Las Vegas, I put together a list of clothes and accessories that I'm interested in buying this spring/summer season.  I always feel like it's helpful to put a list together before you go shopping.  This way you can know exactly what you want to buy.  When I don't have an idea of what I want, I tend to spend more money buying unnecessary things.

Here is my spring/summer list...

During the summer months, I spend a lot of time at the pool.  I love to have some kind of cute cover up to throw on over my bathing suit.  Each year I pass up buying one, but this year I'm going to keep my eye out for one.  This one I found at Old Navy for $15.  

I love light weight tops in the spring.  I love this black jersey top from H&M for $9.99.  H&M is one of my favorite stores to find great prices on basic items like this. 

Even though the hot weather is right around the corner, I'm in the market for a new pair of jeans.  I'm going to be very picky when it comes to buying a pair of jeans.  I'm looking for something with a soft stretchy material that is faded a bit and is no more than $25.  These jeans are a great price at T.J.Maxx for $16.99, but I'd have to try them on in person.  Jeans are just too hard to buy online. 

I love to accessorize with a belt.  Belts are a great way to switch up how you wear an outfit.  You can accessorize it with a long top or a dress, however you want to wear it.  Accessorizing in different ways is a great way to keep you satisfied with your wardrobe.  This braided belt is from H&M is only $5.99.  I'd love to buy this one or find a belt for a similar price some where else.  

Five | Tankini Swimsuit Old Navy $32.94 (50% off right now)
This summer, I'm on the search for a new tankini swimsuit.  I highly doubt that my stomach will be in shape enough to wear my bikinis this summer, especially because our pool season here in Vegas has already started.  I might be a mom now, but I'm not going to be wearing a mom looking bathing suit yet.  That's why I'm on the hunt for a stylish youthful tankini suit.  I like to stick with something classic like a black or navy suit, maybe something with stripes.  I like this black bathing suit from Old Navy.  It's super simple, just what I'm looking for.  

I love pastel colors in the spring and summer.  My wardrobe is full of neutral colors, that's why I would like to find myself a colorful sundress.  This yellow sundress from H&M is perfect for spring.  I'm loving the color yellow right now, because it's so bright and sunny. 

I'm definitely in need of a new pair of sandals.  I keep going back to these braided sandals from Target.  I have a similar pair that I bought a few years ago in white.  I love how comfortable they are and they can be worn with just about anything.  I thought that this conac color would be nice and versatile with the rest of my wardrobe. 

I love having a big purse.  Especially with a baby, it would be nice to not always have to take my diaper bag out with me as my purse.  I really love this Navy color.  You don't often see navy purses, that's why this bag really caught my eye. 

As time goes on my list will change, but as of right now, I'll be keeping an eye out for these items.  I'm hoping to hold out for some great sales this season.  

P.S. When I was researching this post a lot of the items were on sale.  Prices might be different now, but I'm sure it's not the last time that you will see these items on sale this season. 

Happy Shopping!
