APRIL WISH LIST: LOFT EDITION

The weather is getting warmer & I’ve been looking for some pretty Spring/Summer clothes and accessories. I love this time of year! I really gravitate towards neutral colors, but I’d like to add some more color to my wardrobe! One thing I really need is shorts. I hope to find some pairs that will fit right, and flatter my body.

Here are some things on my wish list:

I am officially down 41 pounds since giving birth & I’ve been looking for a new swimsuit! I’m going out of my comfort zone and I ordered a two-piece bikini. I purchased these bikini bottoms and this bikini top. I hope they look good on me!

This Lou & Grey pom pom v-neck midi dress.

PACKING FOR PARIS.

I’m leaving for Paris in about a week, and I already have everything packed for my trip. I will be in Paris for a full academic year (which is about 11 months). How am I going to make almost a year of clothing, shoes, toiletries, etc fit into a few suitcases? Well, I am taking 3 suitcases FULL of stuff. 1 carry on, and 2 suitcases that I’ll have to check in. I really thought ONE carry on, and ONE checked luggage would be enough……. NOT AT ALL.

Remember: I’m taking sweaters, jackets, shoes, pajamas, underwear, shirts, pants, dresses, skirts, socks, etc; and the sweaters alone took up so much space. My only concern is lugging around 3 suitcases, but my sister reminded me that they do have trolleys at the airport, so I should be fine.

I want to show you guys some of the things I’m taking with me on the trip, and I’ll try to include links in case you were interested.

 

BAGS:

I’m taking a standard bag which will function as my school bag, and a purse. I used it last semester, and I just love it so much. It’s roomy, functional, and super adorable. If you’re thinking of getting this Transport Tote from Madewell, I say: DO IT. FOUND HERE.

I also recently bought this suede fringe one! Two bags is perfect! I’ll stuff this in my luggage, because I’m taking the transport tote with me on the plane. FOUND HERE.

 

SHOES:

I’m taking so many shoes, only because I need variety for the different seasons! Boots, flats, sandals. Here are a few that I’m taking:

These loafers from Madewell, in this cheetah print is so fun! I also got them in plain brown leather. So cute. ON SALE HERE.

I need a good pair of sneakers to take with me! These are on sale too, at Madewell. They also come in a pretty burgundy shade. FOUND HERE.

 

SKIRTS:

This velvet skirt is from Loft (and on sale!) Found here.

This adorable sweater skirt, from Madewell, also on sale! So cute on! FOUND HERE.

 

SWEATERS:

JEANS:

I’m a huge fan of J.CREW denim! They fit amazing, and are so flattering. If you go to their website, they have a lot on sale right now. I only get their jeans, on sale! FOUND HERE.

 

I’m so excited! I can’t believe my trip is right around the corner!
