I would first off like to thank Find the Beauty for allowing me guest post on her blog! I am the creator of the Lifestyle blog, Irresistibly Petite and I am a lover of all things fashion and beauty! I would like to share with you all a wishlist that I make for occasions such as Valentine’s Day and my birthday! It’s a thing my fiancé and I do for one another so that we know what to buy each other as gifts for these occasions without having to specifically ask the other person what they want. I’m telling you, it is a life saver!
What’s funny about these wish lists is that I usually give them to Jesus (my fiancé) about a month ahead and he will buy items from the list about two weeks before my birthday. Then, when he receives them in the mail, he’s way too excited to wait until my actual birthday to give them to me and he ends up letting me have the gifts about a week before! *insert face palm emoji here* Isn’t he adorable? Usually I’m the one trying to convince him not to give me the gift ahead of time because I love the surprise/excitement of opening a gift on my birthday!
Now, onto the wish list:
ONE. Since I live in Texas, the sun is out most of the year and I really wanted to add a pair of sunglasses to my wish list. (A girl can never have too many sunglasses, Amiright?) Well, a little over a month ago Jesus and I were at North Park Mall just looking around and we stopped at the Kate Spade store. I went to their sunglasses section and saw these beauties in ‘black gold’! I tried them on and instantly fell in love with them! I loved the girly shape to them and they actually fit on my face well (usually it’s hard to find sunglasses that fit my face!) so I knew they were going to make my Birthday wish list!
TWO. My Tory Burch obsession requires me to add a TB item to all of my wish lists so this is my one item on this list thats Tory Burch. Like I mentioned earlier, Jesus and I were at North Park Mall and we also stopped at the new Tory Sport store they have. I begged Jesus to take me there for the longest because, hello, Tory obsessed over here! The store was nothing short of amazing! I actually ended up getting these leggings, which I had been eyeing for the LONGEST! (If you’d like to get a look of how they fit, go look at my Instagram feed to see an example!) So now, I would like a cute matching top! So this Tory Sport Performance Graphic Top made it to my birthday wish list and since I’ve been running regularly, I know this top would get some good use!
THREE. Even though warmer temperatures will soon be a part of our everyday weather, I still put these AG jeans on my list because Texas weather is so random and I know I will still use these jeans for those odd 50 degree days that we’ll get in the middle of Spring! I currently own these AG jeans and could literally wear them every. single. day. Jesus even told me I needed to stop wearing them because I wore them so much. They are seriously the best jeans I’ve ever owned. This brand isn’t cheap but you’re investing in a GREAT pair of jeans if you buy from them!
FOUR. Dresses are my favorite to wear in the Spring and Summer! They’re just so easy to style and you don’t have to think too much about how to put together a look! I decided to include this Soprano Lace-up Shift Dress on my wish list due to the beautiful spring color it comes in, but also because I love the bell sleeves it has! If you haven’t noticed yet, bell sleeves are in and I love how the bell sleeves on this dress aren’t over-exaggerated like I’ve seen on other dresses and shirts! This dress is also versatile, in which it can be dressed up or down. You can dress it down with a utility jacket and some booties, or you can wear an open-toe strap heel to make it feel more dressy!
FIVE. I have been looking for some white distressed jeans that don’t cost an arm and a leg and I finally came across these Articles of Society Jeans! I read on another bloggers website that these jeans are great for petite women like me and I want to try them out because they’re also VERY affordable! White jeans are also so great for spring because it is so easy to pair it up with any top and heels or wedges because white pretty much goes with EVERYTHING!
SIX. When I originally wrote this post (about a month ago) I found these Steve Madden ‘Christey’ sandal heels and fell in love with them! But while I was shopping for some new heels for my birthday outfit, I tried these on in-store and found that I didn’t like the look on me. The reason being was because my feet are really skinny, so any shoes, sandals, or heels that don’t have adjustable widths, are usually too wide for my feet and these weren’t adjustable. Although I could adjust the width around my ankle, I wasn’t able to adjust it around the top of my foot, which made the sandal look large on my foot. I decided to still include these sandals in this post because I mean, c’mon, they’re completely adorable! The light pink color they come in is also perfect for Spring! So if you don’t have awkwardly skinny feet like me, these would look amazing on you!
SEVEN. Another trend that I am currently obsessed with, is the off-the-shoulder one! What better way to combine your favorite trend and your love for dresses, than with this beautiful off-the-shoulder dress! And look, it even comes in a very Spring-ish color! (I guess I’m obsessed with everything pink as well right now!) What’s even better is that this dress is also under $60! It’s been so long since I’ve bought a dress under $60, that I think this price is such a steal for this adorable dress!
EIGHT. What’s funny is that I used to HATE baseball caps. I just didn’t like the way they looked on me so I used to never own a baseball cap, or any hat, as a matter of fact. Now-a-days, I love baseball caps because they are so great for bad hair days! I stumbled across this awesome baseball cap on Francesca’s website (once again) and couldn’t help but think how great of a bad-hair-day baseball cap it would be! Even better, it has the text “SQUADGOALS” on the front and thought it was even more amazing!
NINE. Over the past 6 months, I have fallen more and more in love with the Sam Edelman brand. Their heels are just the cutest and their prices are affordable, especially compared to other competing brands! And the quality of their items are also amazing! I had to include this oatmeal suede Yaro Ankle Strap Sandal from them because you can never have to many nude sandals AND it will pretty much go with anything as well! It’s pretty much a staple to have in your closet! This specific sandal also comes in a variety of colors so go check them out!
TEN. Another great trend (which is probably the best trend of all) is the athleisure trend! What’s better than being able to wear your work out clothes in the real world and it being totally acceptable? Nothing! This athleisure trend has me looking at these lovely New Balance Sneakers! Yes, I did just say New Balance! They’re coming back in style y’all and Jesus even has a pair that he wears almost everyday! I love this shoe in black because I wear a lot of black athleisure clothes and because it comes with their logo in a sparkly metallic which gives it that cute girly touch! Another huge plus is that they are under $80. If you want these shoes, you better grab them fast though because about a week ago, they were sold out in my exact size and I was originally going to take them off this wish list until I realized they were back in stock!
The last item I wanted to add onto my list was this vibrant top from Goodnight Macaroon! This
‘Katalin’ Floral Print Flare Sleeve off the shoulder top
would look beautiful paired up with some white jeans and cute heels or wedges for Spring. It also has the cute bell sleeves and I just love the colors on this blouse! And then it is also off the shoulder, which makes it look ten times better! (Sorry about the odd formatting on this last item, not sure how to fix it!) Plus, nothing shouts Spring like flowers!
