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. i want that H&M dress! so cute!

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