Wednesday Wish List

Even though it’s January, the weather in the Midwest lately has felt like spring, spring and more spring! While it’s still a bit on the chilly side in the mornings with lows around 30 degrees, the afternoon highs have been in the 60s. That means I’ve been ditching my plaid shirts, sweaters and boots for cardigans, ankle pants and ballet flats. While I know this weather won’t be around much longer, it’s been so nice to enjoy it!

While I’ve been loving this weather, I’m still wishing for warmer temperatures. Hello pedicures, sandals and dresses! The other day the husband and I decided we need a winter getaway because we need a little r and r in the sun together. We’re going to head to Palm Springs for a quick weekend next month and I’m so looking forward to sleeping in, laying by the pool and golfing with my man.

With vacation on my mind, I can’t help but think that I need some new essentials to pack in my suitcase. Here’s just a few of the things I’m currently lusting over…and trying to restrain myself from buying.

Swimsuit Cover Ups

I always struggle with finding cute swimsuit cover ups because by the time I find one I like, they’re out go stock. I’m so glad I started looking early on this year because this one from Old Navy is so bright and cheery that it makes it perfect for the pool. I’m also digging this striped one from Target because, well, I’m addicted to wearing stripes! This also looks like it good double as a cute dress when you pair it with a jean jacket.


Shoes are a major weakness of mine. I love these Target espadrilles because they remind me of a Chanel pair I’ve always wanted, but obviously these are a much more affordable option. I also stumbled across these floral Sperry Top-Siders and I can’t stop thinking about them. Sperry’s are such a comfortable and stylish shoe option and this would make a great traveling shoe. And how adorable is the floral print on it? It reminds me of Lily Pulitzer. And, as always, I love me some Tory Burch so I think these sandals need to make themselves a home in my closet asap.


While I don’t own any jumpsuits, I think this one from Lilly Pulitzer just screams vacation and I’d love to sport this out in Palm Springs. It’s the perfect outfit to wear for a dinner out on a patio. I also have my eye on this dress. The bright colors in it make me so excited for the warmer months ahead. And while this isn’t a cute dress, I just love these bright floral capri pants from Athleta. Since I don’t work out on vacation, these would make my 5:30 am Pure Barre classes a bit more cheery.


A bag is the last thing that I need but this one from Kate Spade is too cute to pass up! The hubs and I decided we’ll be spending our anniversary in London and Paris and I think this Parisian inspired bag is just the perfect tote for traveling to see the Eiffel Tower! And last but not least, since I love all things nautical, I’m really digging this scarf from Charming Charlie. I love how it has orange in it which is a nice surprise from the typical red, white and blue nautical.
