Shopping ListSaturday, February 04, 2017
Over the course of last year I compiled a list of things that I felt were missing from my wardrobe. This was most definitely helped along by having a capsule wardrobe, which highlighted some gaps. As a result I purchased a pair of black court shoes, a basic grey tee, a black t shirt, a new winter coat last year, and most recently a denim jacket with long sleeves.
I'm slowly but surely whittling down my wardrobe to be one that my dreams are made of, and I think the addition of a few specific items will complete it.
I'm going on a mission to find as many of these items as I can, with luck by the end of the year I'll have found most of them, and I'm hoping that having this list will help stop any purchases I later regret.
In no particular order the items are;
Slightly distressed looking, boyfriend or lose skinny, turns up maybe? I hate shopping for jeans but the perfect pair is out there...
Black knee boots
Mid heel, smart. I have some I love but they're not particularly comfortable after years of wear, I want to find another pair, and will happily invest a little more than I usually do now that I know how much I'll wear them.
Small heel, leather, semi smart, Chelsea boot or brogue style, possibly burgundy. I ordered a few pairs last year but all they were all returned, I haven't given up hope of finding the perfect pair though.
Pink or coral, chunky knit, round collar, raglan sleeves. This thought came on a particularly grey day, I wanted to inject some colour, and once the thought was there it didn't go away. It brought to mind this pin from my Looks I Love Pinterest board. I think it'll be a nice change from my normal muted hues.
Semi fitted, soft fabric, rounded hem. I can't believe I don't own one!
Basic white t-shirt
A white version of the black t-shirt I purchased in the summer would be perfect.
Black jacketSemi fitted, smart, lightweight - something to wear in the evenings to go out - you know, out out.
Something unusual, simple in shape and style but in an interesting material, perhaps with some sort of embellishment.
Slouchy, comfy to wear in lieu of a cardigan.
Floaty floral skirt
I'm thinking a maxi, light fabric with muted toned flowers.
Black mini skirt
Not tiny mini, mid thigh mini to wear in the cooler months, probably a tweedy or textured fabric.
Floaty maxi or midi dress
Something with a cap sleeve, v neck, loose fitting
With a high waist, a wide leg. If I can't find a black pair a navy pinstripe or tweed will do.
I have images in my mind of how all of these items should look, which of course will make it much harder to find something that fits the bill, but hunting for the right things is half the fun of clothes shopping.
Do you have a list like this?
