Wardrobe Wishes

Hey, y’all!  Thank you for showing up to see what we have for you today.  We would ordinarily post our outfits here for you on Wednesdays, but life happens and sometimes other things really need our attention…sometimes it’s me, this time it’s Ashley.  To be honest, I haven’t been getting dressed lately anyway.  I am taking this day to post about the things I am wanting and needing for my wardrobe.

I think we all have those moments when we look at our closets and think, “Are you kidding me?  I have nothing to wear.  Ever.”  It has reached a crisis level in my closet, though.  I am losing weight and some stuff is too big, but for the most part, it’s all just worn and tired and not really my current style.  However, I am not in a position at the moment to just go out and buy new stuff.  Besides, I am losing weight and that’s never the right time to invest in new clothes.

So, I have started a list for things I want AND need to fill in the wardrobe gaps or just refresh the old stuff – mostly all-season.  To keep it simple, I will only be showing tops and bottoms and ALL can be mixed and worn together!  If I got started with accessories and dresses, we would be here all week.

Midrise distressed skinnies, in black and medium blue.  I have several pairs, but are all either worn out, getting that way, or almost too big.  I definitely like my jeans snug, so it’s time.  I love Rockstar jeans from Old Navy.  They just work for my body type and are super affordable.

High waist black leggings.  If these aren’t a staple, I don’t know what is.  I need a new pair because my favorites have a hole in the booty from excessive wear since becoming a work-from-home mom.  I am liking the 90 Degree by Reflex, but haven’t tried them yet!

A perfect white tee.  Slouchy, v-neck, pocket.  A staple in every wardrobe.  I am digging this one from Hazel and Olive.

Flowy black tank.  I have lots of great fitted tanks, but need something that is good layered or alone and can be dressed up or down.  This one fits the bill.

Leopard cardigan.  Look, I know there are leopard cardigans everywhere.  I just REALLY wanted the one pictured above from Target and I missed that boat – it’s sold out everywhere.  I have found similar ones, but they don’t have a touch of pink like this one.  I suppose I will have to settle for something close.

Stripe-ish cardigan.  I had been looking for awhile for a black and white cardigan that had big graphic stripes, so big that they would almost not appear to be stripes when in motion.  Then Hope’s Snapchat showed this one and I died!  It’s a must!  Perfect silhouette and pattern.

 

Are any of these items on your wish list?  Or do you have everything you need?

 

 

 

Holiday Wish List 2017: Rhonda

It’s that time of year, when Christmas and my birthday are here and I daydream about what I might get if people still bought me gifts.  I could probably list 500 things, so I imposed a 5-item limit.

Hope’s Gift Card – I have loved literally EVERYTHING this shop stocks.  I need a gift card in the worst way, since I spend every day on Snapchat stalking the new arrivals.  Gimme all the trendy and sexy attire, thanks.

Apple AirPods – Since the day I got my iPhone 7, which has a port that powers both headphones and charger, I have wanted the AirPods.  Yes, I know that I can buy cheaper and probably better Bluetooth earbuds.  First of all, I am a brand snob.  But also, they charge right in the case and can last 24 hours on a full charge.  And I just like them, okay?

Velvet Robe – I love my short satin robe, but when it’s cold as the motherfuckin’ Dickens, I need a little more.  This robe looks like something that could cause me to never leave bed, but I am willing to take that chance.

Heating Pad – I get some serious aches and pains, y’all.  Mostly for a week out of the month.  Stupid unforgiving biology and all.  My heating pad finally died a couple years ago, after a LOT of use over 13 years.  Funny story about that heating pad, actually.  Stuart bought it for me when we first met and were just friends.  He dropped it off at my apartment after I hurt my ribs.

 

Turntable and Speakers – Once upon a time I had a turntable and was into vinyl, then I walked away from a lot of my possessions when I left an abusive relationship.  I miss the sound of vinyl and am ready to start over.

Do you have or want any of these things?  What’s on your wish list this year?
