Window Shopping Wants + October

Welcome to another month of things-Hayley-wants-buy-but-has-no-money-for! Thanks for stopping by! If you read this whole post, I know we would get along really well because there’s just something about discussing clothes with someone that really bonds me with them. I mean, I could go on about clothes for hours, but I’ll spare you the boredom and condense it into this cute little collage.

1. Tory Burch ‘Miller” Flip Flop in ‘Natural Leopard’

I have had my sand patent leather Miller sandals since my junior year of high school. Almost six years, people. I don’t know if I’m more in shock that a pair of shoes lasted that long, or that I was junior in high school six years ago…seriously feels like yesterday, and that freaks me out. Anyways, my Millers are finally starting to get a little too worn out since I wear them almost every day for 8-hour days working retail. This leopard pair is a fun twist on a neutral and might be my replacement pair.

2. Brixton Fiddler Cap in ‘Black/White Tweed’

I used to think hats like this looked so hilarious and early 2000s, but it looks like they’re making a comeback, and my view of them has totally changed. When styled the right way, they look so adorable, and I am definitely thinking about grabbing one. I’m still debating if I can pull it off though.

3. Topshop Balloon Sleeve Turtleneck Sweater

Wow, another sweater that I’m obsessed with! Surprise, surprise! I mean geez, Nordstrom, are you trying to kill me?? Its a turtleneck, has statement sleeves, and is a gorgeous color. Ugh, I’m just gonna let it sit in my cart for the next week and hope it sells out. For my bank account’s benefit, not my heart’s.

4. Lisi Lerch Ginger Earrings in ‘Gold’

I have firm plans to grab myself a pair of these in the next month or so, so you will definitely be seeing them in coming blog posts. A bunch of my friends have them and they are so gorgeous on. They make dressing up an outfit a breeze.

5. Matisse Grove Genuine Calf Hair Bootie

Okay, I don’t know what the deal is with me and leopard lately, either, but I have been finding myself so attracted to it the past couple weeks. I would love these with some black skinny jeans and the red turtleneck that I want so badly too. Basically I just think about outfits all day long, in case y’all were wondering.

 

Window Shopping Wants + September

Hello, friends! I’ve decided to start a new segment on the blog, called Window Shopping Wants. I am an avid online shopper. I probably peruse different clothing sites, fashion blogs, and liketoknow.it, every day when I’m bored or just relaxing at home. Although I rarely actually buy anything, I still see things I want all the time and am always getting outfit inspiration. I’ve always called this “online window shopping,” since I’m not actually buying anything, just browsing. So I was thinking, why not share some of the things I have my eye on? Every month I will bring you my Window Shopping Wants, and share a few of the things I would buy if someone left a giant sack of money on my doorstep (Anyone?…Anyone…? Bueller…?).

WSW1

1. BP. Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan in ‘Green Timber’

I’ve come to notice that a lot of my fall clothes are burgundy, so I would really like to go to the cooler side of the spectrum and start wearing some more green this time of year. I really like this hunter green because it’s the same color as a Christmas Tree, and who doesn’t love to look like a Christmas tree?

2. Baublebar Bone Links Necklace

I really like tortoise patterns, and the blonde tortoise of this necklace is so pretty! I think the necklace is also the perfect size. It’s chunky enough to make a statement, but isn’t super clunky on your neck.

3. Arturo Chiang Hadley Bootie in ‘Iron Leather’

I need these shoes soooooo bad. I am a shoe freak, and when I see a pair I like, I can’t stop thinking about them (wow, obsess much?). I love the shape of them, and especially the chocolate brown color! Maybe I’ll add them to my Christmas list…

4. Nike Free Focus Flyknit 2 Bionic Training Shoe in ‘Sunset Tint/Red Stardust’

I’ve been needing a new pair of tennis shoes for awhile, and by “need,” I mean that the ones I have now are kind of dirty and I don’t care enough to clean them. I really like the color of these and I think they’d be really cute to wear *to the gym.

5. Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Robe in ‘Indigo/White’

For some reason I’ve been on kind of a robe kick the past few months. I’ve been on the lookout for one but have managed to talk myself out of buying one, because I have these things called bills that I have to pay. But if I ever get some spare money or win the lottery, I will have my eye on this one. It looks so soft and cozy and the color gray has really been growing on me recently.

6. Halogen Cashmere Off the Shoulder Sweater in ‘Heather Oatmeal’

Y’all didn’t think I would stop wearing off the shoulder pieces because it’s getting a little chillier did you? Nope, I am still an off the shoulder freak. This sweater is adorable!

7. Kendra Scott Ellie Gold Stud Earrings in ‘Bronze Veined Turquoise’

I don’t know what it is about Kendra Scott, but it is so easy to impulse buy there. I try not to allow myself to go in the store because I just get sucked right in. These earrings are so cute though, and I feel like turquoise is such a stand-out color when paired with so many different neutrals.

April Favorites

April has come and gone, and if I’m being totally honest, I was in summer mode for about 83% of it. But on the bright side, along with April came some new finds and trends that I am enjoying very much, and what better way to get through finals than by writing about things I’m loving, because we all know that final exams will definitely not make this list.


Marc Fisher Shoes

I had been wanting a pair of Marc Fisher wedges for awhile, and a few weeks ago Macy’s was having a huge spring shoe sale, and these two pairs were already on sale, plus had an additional 30% off! When I saw the sale, I lost all will power and snatched them up. I am so so happy that I bought them! They are just great, high quality wedges that I can put with anything, so I can get a ton of use out of them!  They are definitely worth all of the hype they receive, and Marc Fisher is probably my new go-to brand for wedges.

Target’s adorable doormats!

I know, right? This mat is totally, 100%, ridiculously adorable. Target has sooooo many cute doormats out right now, like this pineapple one (perfect for Charleston!), or this tropical one! When my roommate and I saw this cactus mat though, we thought it was just too cute to pass up. I don’t even want to step on it because I don’t want to get it dirty!


CHUCK Baseball Cap by The Nash Collection

For all of you Charleston-lovers out there, I know that you’re digging this Chuck-Town baseball cap. I bought this from Teal Boutique a couple of weeks ago! I was hoping to get it in gray, but they were all sold out, so I settled for the olive, which is still available online (as I’m typing this though, there’s only one left in stock, so if you want it, you better go grab it!)! The Nash Collection also makes hats like this one for other cities as well, so you should definitely check them out. This hat is perfect for when I haven’t washed my hair in three days (which is my hair right now, as I’m typing this) and want to pretend like I actually put in the effort.

Statement Earrings

And finally, I have started to develop a taste for big and vibrant statement earrings. After I bought the earrings for this post, I wanted more, and I’m hoping to grow my collection over the summer! I am drawn to the really chunky, brightly-colored ones, and I think they just pop so nicely with a summer tan. I have my eye on some Lisi Lerch pairs in particular, and Baublebar has some awesome options for statement earrings out right now!

Well, another monthly favorites post down is in the books, and I hope it was just as enjoyable for y’all to read, as it was for me to write (and to buy the stuff for it, let’s be real)! Just a few more days of exams left, and I am finally freeeee!! I am wishing everyone a happy Monday, and check back next week for a new post!
