A few weeks ago I cleaned out my closet quite rigorously. I spent an entire day going through all my clothes and I got rid of everything I hadn’t worn in a long time. So with all that space, I started browsing online stores to see if I could buy a few items to update my wardrobe. I find myself being drawn to very basic and classic items. So I hope you enjoy these items which I picked out. Unfortunately there are a few items that are by now sold out, but I’m sure you’re still able to find most of these.
Acid wash Leigh jeans & Grey ripped Jamie jeans (Topshop)
Black coated Leigh jeans & Black petite Leigh jeans (Topshop)
One section of my closet that got a drastic clean out is my jeans/ pants/ shorts drawer. And where to find some cool, well fitting jeans again? Topshop! For 2 years now, all I’ve been wearing are Topshop jeans and I want no other. My main reason for loving Topshop jeans is that they sell jeans in a leg size that actually fit me. I am short and so I love the fact that Topshop’s main jeans line offers a length size 30 and their petite line even runs shorter at a 28 inch leg. The Jamie and Leigh jeans are my favorites so I’m looking to buy a few to revamp my jeans selection. The acid wash and coated jeans have sold out in my size, so I hope they’ll bring them back soon.
Black & white stripe shift dress (Asos) & Gingham print flannel blouse (Forever 21)
Black & white prints are also high on my wishlist. A t-shirt dress is a classic piece to have, but I am always afraid they won’t fit. This one from Asos isn’t that expensive since it is on sale and Asos now has free returns from The Netherlands, so I think it may be worth a shot. Flannel probably isn’t the first fabric that you would think of when buying spring clothes, but I think it’s a classic which is good to own. I actually don’t own that many printed blouses and I definitely do not own a gingham print one, so this will be a good addition.
Nautical stripe shirt with sheer panel (Urban Outfitters) & Boxy navy & white striped tee (Forever 21)
White embroidered blouse with short sleeves (Asos) & Grey and white stripe tee (Forever 21)
So I can no longer find both of these items on the websites, but if you do a search for a white shirt or browse the t-shirt section on Forever 21, you will be able to find many similar items. The first shirt is a short sleeved white blouse with an interesting design. I have many blouses already, but a clean white short sleeved blouse is not something I own. Well, I bought one from H&M, but that is cropped and plain. But I would like to have one that is a bit more interesting. The shirt would be a great basic to own: a grey striped t-shirt on a pair of jeans is a great go to outfit any time of year.
White short sleeved blouse with crochet detail (Forever 21) & White pleated blouse (Urban Outfitters)
Staying with the white blouse theme. I also don’t own a long sleeved white blouse that is clean and simple. The one from Urban Outfitters is now on sale for 14 euros, so I think that will be something I will be purchasing soon. The other blouse is no longer available from the Forever 21 website which is a shame. I love the boxy shape and the crochet detail along the buttons. I hope they will bring this back or that I can find it when I happen to have time to find a physical Forever 21 store.
Tan sandals (Asos)
A pair of tan sandals is high on my wishlist. Not these ones in particular, because I don’t think these would fit, but just a pair of tan sandals in general is a must have for summer. I have a hard time finding sandals that actually fit my feet. I have a high arch and wide feet. So anything strappy is usually a no go. And most sandals are just that: strappy. I found a pair of black ones from Forever 21 three years ago, so I haven’t given up hope yet, but yeah finding a good pair of tan sandals is something I hope to do within the next few months.
Black ankle boots (H&M)
Last but not least are these boots by H&M. These have been on my wishlist since they launched. They are real leather and part of the premium line. I even tried them on last month in Rotterdam and didn’t buy them. Not because they didn’t fit, but because I couldn’t justify buying them just yet. They are 80 euros and for a pair of H&M shoes, I find that to be quite expensive. I saw that they are on sale now at 30% off so I may have to cave any way. These are so cool! From the curved heel to the pointed toe: these shoes are so classy and when I tried them on they were very comfortable too.
What is on your spring fashion wishlist?
