I am so ready for spring! It's still absolutely frigid here in the mitten, and all I can think about is warm weather, dresses with no tights, pastels, bright colors, taking more photos, ice-cream cones, and wearing flats. I guess for now I'll just have to dream! I feel like we are still so far off before I can indulge in any of those things! I recently fell in love with this new line called Fidji Shoes from PlanetShoes. I just adore the colors, unique detailing and retro vibe they have! For my "wishlist" this month, I thought it'd be fun to plan an outfit around them. I paired a bright blue tunic dress from Dynamite Clothing with it, along with some cute and playful accessories. I'm also signed up for ABM's DSLR class, and I'm really excited to start getting more passionate and creative with taking photos. I've felt totally uninspired lately, so I'm hoping that will help! But for now, I'll just think spring! xo
Hey guys! I'm just popping in quick to share my wish list right now. I'm so ready for spring! It's pretty obvious in my choices right now. Actually as I was putting this together, I was like… I've successfully already nabbed four of these items! I got my amazing water candle (that reminds me of a tropic paradise while it's a blizzard outside). I also finally ordered the Madewell Transport Tote I've been lusting over for almost a year. I got these adorable PJ polka dot jammies (to look like Jess from New Girl, of course) and some classic Ray Bans that I can't wait to wear every single day this summer. Other than that, I really want a new bike for spring/summer this year. I haven't had a bike in years, and I think it'd be so much fun to hop off and take a ride with Eric for a picnic or ride downtown to work. This teal one from Public is on the TOP of my list, with an adorable little basket! I also love mint for spring (of course), and florals (duh.) What's new, right? ;) I'll be back tomorrow to share a little bit of news and why I've been so spotty here on Selective Potential. In the meantime, enjoy! xo
I'm obviously still in the autumn vibe! I should be preparing for the holidays, the holiday dresses, the winter coats, and the mittens and scarves to prepare us for the upcoming snow. But, I'm stuck in autumn! Burnt orange, cranberry, chunky socks, fun textures and patterns, ankle boots. This month, I want to warm up in this darling orange coat from SheInside, cuddle on the sofa with this quilt from Secret Ships and stomp around in these amazing new boots from the Samantha Pleet x Wolverine 1000 Mile Collection. I'm hoping to purchase a new couch soon, and would love a funky quilt and more random throw pillows for it! As for clothes, I'm still all about plaid, autumn colors, and neutrals. I'm also loving western elements lately and this little pistol necklace from Freshtrends is so cute! Happy November! xo
When I was making up my wishlist this month, I thought my board felt a little bare! But honestly, right now - I'm about the "little things". Not just in terms of what I want closet-wise, but in life too. The little things can really pull everything together. Great accessories can make an outfit. A new coffee cup can brighten your morning. A swing on the porch at night can put away the day's stresses. I'm a huge believer of "it's the little things that count" and I'll just end summer on that note! As for closet wants, I want a new red cardigan and this one from London W11 Limited is simple + perfect. This drop-waist Madewell dress is the one I'm lusting after. It's so cute! Other than that, I'm loving mustard - eyeshadow, accessories, shoes. It's the perfect color to transition from summer into autumn. Happy August, everyone!
Happy 4th of July, everyone! I'm so excited because this is one of my favorite holidays. I absolutely love July (of course, it's my birthday month) and I'm excited for the long weekend. I'm actually taking the entire weekend off to relax and clear my head - no internet at all. Unless I sneak in a little bit of Instagram, but that's it. It'll be good for me to disconnect! But in the meantime, here are some of my favorite styles for the month. I thought I'd go with a fun 4th of July theme, but many of these pieces I'd wear throughout the rest of summer. I'm looking for a great oil reducing lotion, and Beautique UK was recommended to me, so I need to try that out! Other than that, I'm loving this polka dot dress, gold earrings, wedges, navy/denim and red. I hope you all have a great weekend! xo
I'm kind of all over the place in terms of what I want for June! All we've had so far is June gloom weather, so I'm feeling pretty neutral. I'm looking for more tops/bottoms to remix in my outfits. This flounce back top is too cute, and I love this chevron pattern tank. These would look cute with a floral skirt, for sure. I've been looking for a cute nude/pink clutch or purse and this one from Red Clover is too adorable. Plus, a classic pair of Clubmaster Ray Bans would be perfect for summer too. I'm also excited to feature a tank from Nude Voice. Nude Voice is an apparel company that designs clothing that helps spread awareness for causes, and social issues. Be sure to check them out! What are you guys in the mood for this month?
