a spring wishlist

Hi guys!

Have you missed my wishlists? I posted a couple of them last year, then I needed a break from compensating my shopping lust into thousands of wishlists and now I feel like posting another one again, especially because spring has sprung. This warmer weather makes me wanna live in jeggings and loose shirts.
Here are some of the pretty pieces I came across in different online shops. It's my birthday next month, so maybe I'll even get one or two of these...

I fell in love with this at first sight! When I turned the page of the H&M spring/summer catalogue and glimpsed this adorable checkered dress for the first time I knew I had to have it! But unfortunately H&M has not established the price in my favor. 29,95€ is a bit much for H&M standards isn't it? So now I'm hoping for a pre-summer sale or something...

The "Misty Sequoias Tunic" landed on my wishlist immediately. I've said it before: I want to live in jeggings and loose shirts, especially if the shirt is as pretty as this one here! I love the simplicity and the change from moss green to beige-white.

Of course I also have to mention at least one Modcloth dress on my wishlist (secretly I wish I could afford a dozen of their beautiful dresses or more...). So here it is, the perfect bird print dress called "Aviary Enthusiast" that totally enchants me with it's lovely colours and vintage vibe. I also saw it on Rebecca of The Clothes Horse today and was simply amazed. What a perfect dress!

I've always wanted a darkblue handbag. A pretty one. Now Zara has it: a perfect shade of darkblue, a good size for uni and work (DIN A4-suitable), made of genuine leather, what more can I ask for? I love it. And even although I'm a chintzy person I have to say that 79,95€ is still okay for a leather bag. Not ideal but okay.

Okay, this is something that will probably stay on this wishlist because I'm too chintzy to spend 98,40€ on a simple coat. But I want to be able to keep it in mind in case I ever happen to have enough money left, so I post it here. I adore the classic timeless caramel-brown and the clean and chic look with a touch of 60s mod feel. Plus I think this might be very flattering for my bodyshape.

Furthermore when I browsed Asos I got stuck on these Diesel boots. I don't really know why because I hate cowboy boots, they make most people look like dorks (remember Ted's red cowboy boots in "How I Met Your Mother"?)... but this modern flat streetwear version of classic cowboy boots is different. I really like these and I bet they would look lovely with skinny jeans and a cozy oversized sweater or poncho.


Both necklaces and other gorgeous designs can be found at Verabel.
I found this shop via a link at Tumblr or so and I was so stunned by the beautiful designs that I clicked around in the shop for at least 30 minutes. They sell mostly lockets, painted with ethnic patterns, birds, ships... I really adore them!

Another awesome Etsy shop I found is I Heart Norwegian Wood, a Canadian shop that sells pieces with lovely prints and patterns. Their range goes from tops and skirts over harnesses and jewelry to colourful crazy pants and leggings. I especially love the two pieces above: the "Landscape t Dress" and the "Abstract Mesh Luxe Collection Leggings". Everything in the shop is self-designed, made with love and looks a tad vintage-wise.

Hm the world is full of pretty things, no? :)
I hope you liked this little trip through some of my favourite online shops.

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Ah um das H&M Kleidchen laufe ich schon knappe vier Wochen drum herum. Das mit dem Vogelprint ist auch süß. Ich finde aber H&M mittlerweile fast qualitativ besser als Zara, was die Klamotten angeht. Bei Zara habe ich oft Sachen gesehen, die schon Fäden gezogen hatten bzw. Löcher an den Nähten aufwiesen.

  2. Great picks! My favourites are the Zara bag and the I Heart Norwegian Wood t-dress!

    M xo

  3. I love those Etsy necklaces! And I adore everything Modcloth!
