Warby Parker WishlistI have been wearing glasses since I was in the 5th grade. I have had hot pink ones, light pink ones, wired ones, red ones and currently I am wearing black ones. BUT, when I stumbled across Warby Parker through Carly on The College Prepster Blog, I finally fell in love with buying glasses. You see, glasses are a pain in the butt: I need them to see but they are that thing you really don’t want to spend money on. Warby Parker are affordable, modern and cute. Plus, they will send you a trial frame set that you can try on and then send back when you figured out which one you look your absolute best in. These are the 5 I have picked to try on and even though I would love all of them, my budget is set for one. I’m thinking the Crane frame will be the most versatile and adorable; what do you think?

Dreaming of a new bedroom

1.8.13 Wednesday Wishlist- New BedroomZach and I haven’t bought new bedroom anything since we moved in together 3 years ago. Well, that might be a bit of an exaggeration… We did buy a dresser to match his, for me, and a bookcase to match both, but for the most part nothing else. We have been using the duvet cover I have had for over 5 years. Yes, I think it is time to redecorate.

I am so in love with the comfortable tranquility of blue, gray, brown and gold even though I had never really thought of it before. These images are a starting point for my inspiration. The best part is our furniture is already a modern dark wood so it will really be the accents that will have an overall. But it will be better than nothing, right? Xo.

J Crew Wishlist
For Christmas I received a gift card to J. Crew and was pretty ecstatic about it. The only problem is I want almost everything and I have an extreme fear of spending a gift card on the wrong item. I also want to get the most bang for my buck so I tend to stick to the factory store (which just so happens to have amazing sales almost everytime I visit the site) and can spend hours trying to pick out which piece I actually want. I have narrowed it down and hopefully will decide by the end of the week:

1. Collection Embellished Raglan Sweatshirt

2. Classic Crewneck Cardigan in Stripe

3. Polka-dot Popover

4. Chambray Tunic

5. Winnie Pant in Stretch Twill

6. 3″ Embroidered Chino Short

7. Stripe Sleeveless Popover Blouse

8. Whittier Purse

9. Suede Lace Up Wedge

My obsession with bows (for a twenty-six year old) has become almost embarrassing; yet, for some reason, I cannot stay away. A bow could be on a headband, a sweater, incorporated in jewelry, on a purse, on anything and I will want to own it.  I have started to wonder if this need for bows will ever die down but then I think, no way – I am in love. Here are a few pieces that I would love to add to my collection.

1. Forever 21 // 2. RED Valentino // 3. Vickers’ Bow Collection // 4. Forever 21 // 5. Lilly Pulitzer // 6. Kate Spade // 7. J. Crew // 8. J. Crew Factory
