It's boxing day - let the craziness begin! As people flock to the stores and the online shopping sites looking for the best deal I'm looking for deals too. The big difference? I go in with a wishlist and a budget.
This year, these are my top wishlist items to add to my wardrobe this year....
1) Great Sweaters
It's winter and I love a great cozy sweater. I can easily live all winter in my hoodies so I have high demands of a sweater - it must be warm, comfy, well fitted, and easy to care for. I mean, I want to look good!
2) Little Black Dress
Who doesn't love a great little black dress. This year I'm looking for something cute but with a touch of elegance and sophistication. I love the one included above - It's a great length, I love the inclusion of the lace on the top half, and I can think of half a dozen or more occasions it's perfect for right off the top of my head. Look for something with an interesting detail instead of the basic black dress.
3) Bright Wrap Dress
What can I say? Wrap dresses are flattering on just about every body type and a bold pop of colour helps to bring the outfit alive. A dress like this purple number is just as at home in the office as it is on a date night or night out on the town.
4) Long A-Line Topper
I love, love, LOVE jackets so they always end up on my wish list. Last year I picked up a great shorter jacket with super wide lapels, this year I'm looking for an elegant longer (knee length) a-line topper (Think Kate Middleton style) for dressier occasions. Anything that keeps me warm and nips in the waist is always a good choice.
5) Teal Blazer
I'm totally crushing on teal and 2013's Pantone Colour of the Year emerald - I know I will be adding these colours to my layering pieces but I'm also on the hunt for a great tailored blazer in a beautiful teal or emerald shade to add some wow factor to work outfits and jeans alike!
6) Long Pencil Skirt
Everyone knows a pencil skirt is flattering on just about anybody but I'm loving the longer style (just below the knee) pencil skirt. I've had a heck of a time finding one in person but if I can score one of these I will be a happy woman.
