Wish List | Spring & Summer Buys

I don't know about you, all this wonderful weather always reminds me that I need new pieces of clothing in my wardrobe. Am I the only one? I'm not much of a girly girl, so you won't find me in loads of dresses... though I do love owning them.. I rarely wear them. I'm odd like that. Anywho, there is need for a couple of more dresses... and other items, so I came up with a spring and summer buy.

Simple Dresses

Wait, wait. I will admit. I really put an effort in wearing more dresses or skirts during the summer. It can become so warm that you really don't want to be walking around in jeans. Jeesh. That is why I do like thinking about pretty spring and summer dresses (not so much the trying on.. that can be depressing). I am especially looking for prints.. I wear loads of basics without a print, so for now I'm thinking pretty floral designs or something just as cute. However, I came across this pretty and simple dress online by H&M that is made of the right fabric for warm weather and has a nice summery color.

Jacquard Print

So I just mentioned buying more prints and I am really digging the jacquard print. Ever since I bought my nice Esprit vest with a jacquard pattern I decided I want more like it! That is why this black and white skirt is on the list! It might be a good buy! But I will have to try it first, of course. Do you prefer to buy online? Or try before you buy? Speaking of skirts.. I am thinking of buying a quilted A-line skirt! Or a poofy skirt? What do you think of those? And I said I am not girly ;-)

Rose Golden Rings

I love jewelry. I don't always wear them (are you noticing a pattern?) but I love them oh so much. There is one type of jewelry I almost always wear: rings. Some rings I never take off unless I am switching them with other rings.. so yeah, with rings I am easygoing. I just put them on and don't have to think about them anymore. I also like wearing those big and bold statement rings, but those I obviously don't wear 24/7! For this spring and summer I am thinking more rose gold/pink floral rings!

Redness Relief Face Cream

Spring and summertime don't just mean more sunshine and feeling happier. Unfortunately, it also means taking better care of my face (especially cheeks) because they will have to endure more sunshine. Sunshine and heat are one of the fastest ways my rosacea grows and my redness intensifies, so I will definitely be using a redness-relief face cream by Avene! How are you taking care of your face?

Dry Sunscreen Oil

I am considering getting a dry sunscreen oil, rather than a cream. I have been reading up on it and it seems interesting enough. I imagine it gives you the nourishment and protection a regular sunscreen cream would.. but, perhaps, without the stickiness and white stripes/spots. What do you think?

Sunglasses

Just as important as sunscreen is a good pair of sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun. I really love the cat eye designs, but they don't have to be very dramatic (I think I've got plenty of those) so I will be on the lookout for more subtle designs in a nudish brown color. Perhaps this pretty one by Vogue Eyewear. Do you like the shape?

Well, there is so much more I could think of.. but I will start out with this first. The only thing that is a real must for me, right now, is the face cream by Avene because I need a new one. The rest I already have in some form, shape, whatnot.. so those are not necessities.. just wants. What about you? Have you already wishlisted clothing items or beauty products with spring and summertime in mind?

  8. I love the dress! En een hele mooie wishlist.

    Ik snap wat je bedoelt met cat eye zonnebrillen. Ik heb er laatst een besteld, is onderweg (yay!) ven heel benieuwd.

  9. I vote yes on more dresses, this color will look great against your skintone. I am a girly girl and I love wearing dresses (although until 2 years ago I hated them). I couldn't wear a puffy skirt but you have a body for that- so I say yes too!

    I like the idea of dry sunscrren. I just bought a dry body lotion and I love it! And as far as sunglasses, I need to wear prescription glasses so I can't just go out and buy any pair I like, unfortunately!

    1. Interesting! Maybe I'll make a similar transformation over the years to come? Hm. Well, not sure I could pull it off... but no harm in trying it on, right? :D

      Ah, yeah! I love buying all kinds of -inexpensive- sunglasses.. but with prescription glasses that becomes a bit harder and way more expensive.

  12. Yay for more dresses, they are so easy to throw on and run out of the door. That mustard color would look lovely against your skin.

  17. Leuke wishlist en dat jurkje van H&M is super cute! Ik heb al teveel zomerkleding, dus ik probeer me echt in te houden, in NL kan je nou eenmaal je zomerkleding niet veel/lang dragen. Vaak toch te koud.. :( Maar ik zoek nog wel zo'n 'casual/comfy' broek met wijde pijpen, ze lijken een beetje hippie-achtig, maar zijn o-zo leuk als je ze goed styled. Tot nu toe nog geen goede tegen gekomen, ik ben vaak te klein waardoor ik over de pijpen struikel..
