Spring Wish List: Needs

Happy Thursday friends!

I've mentioned it a lot lately, but I am giddy for spring...and spring shopping! After very little shopping all fall and winter, I am dying for some fun bright, new pieces for the warmer weather.

That being said, between now having a car payment, being a bridesmaid in two upcoming weddings, and heading to the Southern C Summit next month, I am definitely having to stick to a budget! I decided to divide my spring wish list this year into two categories: Needs & Wants. This way I can prioritize my shopping and stick to a budget! Today I am sharing my Spring Needs with you!

NEEDS
New Tan Wedges

Y'all know I've been dreaming about these Tory Burch wedges for over a year now. I'm hoping for a Friends & Family sale in April, but I have found 2 similar pairs, at much lower, price points, too (here and here). I am debating if I should get one of those pairs instead? If I do that, I'll be able to justify buying something (or maybe even a few things) off my wants list. What do y'all think?

Light Blazer

Blazers have never really been my thing. I love them on others, but feel like they just never quite work on my body. I have a black blazer that I think I've only worn once all fall and winter. That being said, with warmer temperatures coming, I have a feeling I'll be wearing sleeveless dresses more frequently, and having a great light blazer will be necessary to wear with those dresses for important meetings, or in cold spaces! I am really loving some of J. Crew's sleek options, particularly this one. I think they would make for a more flattering fit on me. 

New Nude Heels

I've had my current nude heels for over 5 years now, and it's safe to say, they've seen better days! My current pair are Franco Sarto with a round toe, slight platform, and matte leather. I love them and really like this similar Franco Sarto pair! I bought mine for a bargain at Marshall's. I'll likely look there again, but have found some other great pairs online, in case their selection isn't up to par. AND, if I'm really going to call this a "wish" list, I'll admit that the L.K. Bennetts are the pair I really want!

What are your current wardrobe needs?

Have you done any spring shopping lately?

I'll have a more fun wish list post coming soon with my spring wants!

Have a great day!

  1. You know I agree with the blazer need! :) LOVE those tan Tory wedges - gorgeous. I'm really trying to hold off on buying many things until June, but it's so hard. All of the spring stuff is the cutest!

  2. I grabbed the Tracy wedges from Target the other week along with another pair of black espidrille wedges when they had the buy one get one 50% off. I plan to wear them this weekend to a bridal shower.

  3. Being a bridesmaid really eats into a budget!! I'm with you on blazers- love how polished they look on others, but not so much on me. I think it's because I had to wear a suit or blazer to work every day when I practiced law full-time. Bad associations, ha!

  4. Such good picks! I love the TB wedges but they were too high for me :( and I love those LK Bennett ones--same as Kate Middleton!

  5. I've feel the same way about blazers- they just aren't that fab on me, but I'm totally loving the J Crew Regent ones in the pictures!

  6. Lusting over LK Bennets a la the Duchess over here, as well. I went with Cole Haan instead, and actually I'm quite pleased (as is my husband/our bank account).

  7. I love all your needs! I think I would buy a cheaper version of the sandals and splurge on your wants! I have been doing a little spring shopping too!

  11. I've been on the look out for tan wedges too!!! I've had my eye on some Michael Kors ones but we shall see ... TGIF! Have a great weekend!

  12. It can be so hard to find a pair of nude pumps. I don't know why this is such a difficult task but it is! Mine are Ivanka Trump from Nordstrom and they are several years old but I still love them. Love the TB wedges. I have a pair of tan wedges from last year (I cannot remember who makes them, MK maybe?) and they are so comfy and go great with everything. They are a must for sure.

  13. I say go for the Target wedges so you can tap into some of your other needs! I'm seriously loving them, I feel like people at work think I only own one pair of shoes now. Let me know what you end up going for blazer wise, I'm on the hunt for that too and have the same problem with them just not looking right.

  14. Go for the Target wedges! Funny you posted about the nude pumps, I literally just ordered a pair from Nordstrom right before reading this post. I ordered the Charles Charles David nude pumps. Have a great weekend, lady! xo, Champagne&Suburbs

  15. Great basic staples! I love the Tory wedges too, but I don't think anyone would know the difference between them and a Target pair. I have the Cole Haan nude heels that look like the L.K Bennetts but have "Nike Air Technology" and they are soo comfortable!
