April Wish List & Purchases

Now that it’s April all I want to do is wear cute spring clothes.  There are so many fun options right now, and I may have bought a few non-maternity things recently even though I won’t be able to wear them for a while.  I finally bit the bullet and ordered these navy wedge espadrilles, that I’ve had in cream, olive and bright blue for years.  They are pretty much the only heel I wear when it’s warm out (as seen in this blog post here), and they are so comfortable and go with everything from dresses to jeans to shorts.  I tried Target’s version of these shoes a few years ago, but they just weren’t as comfortable so I donated them after one or two wears.  I’m excited to try them out once I get back home to Kansas.  They should be waiting for me when I get there 🙂

This striped one-shoulder swimsuit looks so classic and perfect for after I have a baby and am living in Hawaii (although now that I think about it nursing will be super easy on one side and a bit more difficult on the other…guess I’ll cross that bridge when I get there).  I saw Carly of The College Prepster wearing the red version of it on Instagram (see pic here) and knew I needed the blue one.  

This simple straw sunhat with a striped ribbon was a super great deal and I can’t wait to wear it on the beach.  Baseball caps are a bit easier to wear when you’re wrangling a toddler, but maybe I can wear this on a day that isn’t very windy.

These cream lace-up espadrilles are on my wish list, although the price is a bit high for me.  I’ve seen Julia of Gal Meets Glam (one of my favorite fashion bloggers) wear them in a lot of her Instagram posts, and would love to give them a shot.    

The white tassel off the shoulder dress looks perfect for a beachy date night.  Hopefully I can squeeze a few of those in with Tom before baby #2 arrives!  I don’t have this dress but know I would love it since I have this navy one that is really similar.     

I just bought these navy scalloped shorts…in a size I certainly don’t fit in right now.  I went to Belk on Monday with my mom because I had a gift card (it’s a Southern department store for y’all non-southerners).  They have an adorable clothing line called Crown & Ivy and everything was so cute!  It looks pretty similar to Lilly Pulitzer and is very colorful and preppy (but way cheaper than Lilly).  I got these shorts for just $22.25!  I also love this flounce sleeve dress and this striped off the shoulder dress.

    Question for you about J.Crew stores. I'm thinking about making my first purchase online from J.Crew Factory. It seems that returns can be made to a J.Crew Factory store (as opposed to mailing them back…I'm cheap!). How do I know what store is a J.Crew Factory store? We have a J.Crew Mercantile and a J.Crew at the outlet mall. Is one of those considered a factory store?

    Hi! J.Crew Factory is J.Crew's outlet store, so if you have an outlet mall near you then you can return the J.Crew Factory orders there. Don't worry, I'm cheap too 🙂 I hope you like your purchases! J.Crew Factory is easily my favorite store, and once you find out your size it's pretty easy to always know what size you'll be. Hope that helps!
