Spring Fashion Shopping List

Something that helps me a lot is making a type of Master Shopping List. I do it when I decorate a room, and I do it for my wardrobe!
It helps me save money. I know what I'm looking for when I go shopping. It forces me to take a look at what I have already and decide what will seamlessly fit in and makes sure I don't keep buying the same thing over and over (how many grey sweaters does a girl need?).
I have 7 pieces I'm looking for this spring, I probably won't find them all (hopefully not because I can't afford them all) but I'll be looking:
1. A yellow scarf: This one is from Kate Spade (so it might not be this one exactly at $105).
2. A great pair of super wide leg jeans. I can't do the skinny jeans thing, I blame my hips. These ones are from Levi and are $50!
3.Some great Yellow Nail Polish.
4. A new Clutch, I love this one from BCBG and at $78 I might be able to afford it this spring.
5. A new pair of flats in a color! I have lots of flats but I'd like something BRIGHT . . . maybe they match my new clutch. These ones are from H&M and are around $13!
6. Oh MY! These earrings, I would pierce my own ears with a rusty nail to wear these (thankfully my ears are already pierced so I won't have to). They are from Stella and Dot and are just under $50.
And Lastly,
7. A New Plaid Shirt! Something in a really light weight! This one is from Old Navy and is $25!

You might be wondering why there are no tank tops and shorts? Short Answer: I live in Canada. The mildest part of Canada, but it's still Canada and Spring is not shorts weather, not for me anyways.

I hope you like it! I make all of my Fashion Boards using Polyvore, Love them. Here's a link to my Polyvore page, it should have links to all of the cool stuff on my list.

  1. Great idea! I cleaned my closet out big time last year, and so need to go back through a see what truly needs to be added in. Target had some great striped scarfs this spring, not sure if they had yellow though.

  2. I impulse bought a pair of yellow flats and now I wear them all. the. time. Surprisingly they go with everything (yellow is a neutral apparently!) Then it opened the flood gates, and now I own a pair of coral flats and turquoise. I also feel the need to find a skinny yellow belt to go with them....

  4. JCPenney has some plaid shirts from the A.N.A. brand that are cute and affordable. Good luck in your search.

  6. Ooooh I love love love your selections! Those flats seem so fun! I wish there were more places to shop in this small town of mine :( On a plus note it's been reaching 15-20 degree weather lately!

  7. That is a great idea! I like to do something similar & I go a bit further after I make my decisions. I put outfits together, usually 2 weeks at a time. I do have a large closet, so I have a special area for this. I keep all my jewelry sets in little nylon bags (Michael's wedding aisle), so I grab a top, bottom, scarf, & sweater (or jacket), loop my jewelry bag around the hangers & sometimes a purse, too. I try to do lots of casual with just a couple of dressy casual thrown in. I do lots of mixing and matching & this method keeps me from wearing the same combo of pieces all the time. It's also great if we decide to take a little trip. I literally just lay my grouped sets (hangers & all) into my suitcase, then simply hang them when I get to my destination. Less wrinkles this way, & hotels never have enough hangers....lol!

    I love those tangerine flats!

  8. This inspired me to look through my Style board on Pinterest and make a list of ten items I would like to acquire in the near future....

  13. LOVE that scarf. And how wide leg jeans hide a multitude of the sins that skinny jeans totally expose with me.
