march wishlist

1. Spiral Notebook - J.Crew
5. Frayed Utility Vest - Forever 21

Because money is so very, very tight around these parts, I'm not even interested in pieces that wouldn't be staples in my life. I'm loving the utility vest trend, especially with a touch of neon, and think it would last much longer than the trend-setters intend. I'm always on the lookout for boyfriend jeans that fit just right and this Gap pair has been on my list to try on for some time. And what better way to accessorize them than a leopard print belt? If there is a more useful accessory out there, I don't know about it. Animal print is classic and my favorite neutral. A yellow dress would get so much wear in the spring and summer, especially if it was tailor-made for my body. Finally, I'm looking for a rad notebook to use for Here Comes the Brand, as well as for this blog and for all the other things I do. A place to jot down outfit ideas, take notes at client meetings, and make many to do lists. I saw this notebook at J.Crew a few weeks ago when Dago dragged me there to purchase his dream shoes and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it.

Besides these closet staples, I'm searching hard for my dream overalls and the perfect maxi skirt. If I knew where to find either of these things, they would surely appear in my wishlist and later in my closet, but I'm still a-huntin'. After Bridget of Deer Circus picked up this pair of overalls in the little boys' section of a thrift store, I'm convinced I can do the same. Do you have a go-to store to buy overalls or maxis? I'd love to know where!

  1. I love all the items you picked! I've also been on the hunt for some BF jeans!

  2. Hey Nicole! I love, LOVE your style! I have been following your blog for a while and I just started one of my own (yay!) I absolutely adore your 'love letters' series! It is such a wonderful idea and I love reading what everyone has to say. My little blog is just a baby still but I'm proud of her and I would love for you to stop by and see me sometime!

  4. I want to wear boyfriend jeans so bad but I just can't find a pair that works on my body type. I think I'm doomed in that regard, but I'm all about notebooks and things. They just have to fit well in my hands and I can always find one that works... I may or may not have purchased 2 yesterday.

  5. I have a pair of boyfriend jeans from the Gap Outlet that I pretty much love, except that I hate that Gap jeans have such big butt pockets because they make your butt look bigger. They do fit really nice though (not sure if they're the same model). Find yourself a Gap Outlet if you haven't already; prices tend to already be cheaper, and I stocked up on jeans and sweaters at one point when they were having a storewide sale plus there was a web coupon for like 20 percent off everything.
