Weekend Wish List

weekend wish list with classic fashionable and colorful finds for women for spring and summer
Shop the Wish List:
Well it's certainly a colorful wish list this go round, that's for sure! We made it to Friday once again and we had some pretty rainy and dreary weather yesterday and this morning and so I think that's what has me craving all things color!! If you are new here, I publish a weekend wish list every Friday morning. It's filled with things that have caught my eye from this week and I'm very discerning as to what goes on this list! 

Some notes...

Thinking about getting a pair of these Double Arm Sconces to flank our living room TV! They're stunning, don't you think? 

I think I am going to order this one piece Green Textured Swimsuit. I'm undecided on the color. This green is speaking to me right now, but I know a 'boring' color like black may be more versatile in the long run. I just feel like the green is special, you know? I love the classic cut of this suit and also love the texture of the fabric... you may have to click through and zoom to really see the pretty texture. I think texture adds interest to an otherwise simple swimsuit and makes it look elevated. 

These Espadrille Heels are a bit trendy for my personal style but I'm truly considering them. I think platforms can be a little tacky but when done right look really great. I also find them to be more comfortable since you get a little more cushion up front. I don't know... what do you all think about these?!

This Blue and white floral dress is stunning. Not only do I love the print but I think the cut is simple and classic. As summery as the dress looks, I could even see it in the fall with a navy turtleneck underneath paired with tall riding boots. I could also see this with ballet flats and a classic navy blazer.

These Green Marbled Leggings are inexpensive and adorable! 

This Golf Cardigan is a bit of a splurge for a novelty but wow is it fun! I know my husband would appreciate it. If we were hosting a Master's party, I would totally splurge on this and wear with a white dress or white top and white jeans! 

A Few Past Weekend Wish Lists:

One reason I like to share past wish lists with you all is so that you can easily access them in case you missed them but also see if things you may have had your eye on gave gone on sale since it was posted!

This has been a pretty low-key/normal week and I've really enjoyed it. I am a creature of habit and love routine so I felt good about staying right on track! I can't believe we are already nearing the end of March.

This weekend I plan to tackle my closet/spring cleaning. I like to clean out my closet each season and I don't feel like I did a very good job of that in the fall when I was switching from spring/summer to fall/winter. I need to be more discerning this time and really narrow things down! It's always a big project but it feels so good once it is all done. I actually tackled my shoes over the week between Christmas and New Year's so at least that's already done! 

We are off to Cleveland later this weekend to catch a Cavaliers game. That's their NBA team for those of you who don't know... I didn't either before meeting my husband, ha!! We don't have an NBA team here in Pittsburgh so I never paid attention to it really. My husband is from Ohio and is a big fan of the team so it will be fun! 

I actually filled out a March Madness bracket this year! Did anyone else? 3 out of 4 of my final 4 teams are already out...LOL. Even though my bracket is pretty much garbage now, I still think it's so fun! 

New Atlantic Pacific x Lake collab PJ's that they sent to me in the photo at the top of this post. The entire collab is SO good.

Reading: I just started digging into this book. I was sent it in a PR package and have been enjoying it so far. I'm a big J.Crew fan and have been forever so the references are all so good and interesting! 

Sale: Wella fusionplex is one of my fave shampoo/conditioner combos and right now it is 50% off. 

 I feel like there has been no good TV lately! My husband and I like to watch Summer House and that's currently on a new season but I think the season is lackluster. Other than that, we are watching nothing! If you all have any suggestions, let me know. There are a few seasons we never got into that maybe we need to give another chance... like Yellowstone and Succession. Those are two off the top of my head that I know so many people rave about. I've also been hearing that Shrinking on Apple TV is good so maybe we will give that a go. 

Loving: I snagged this dress at Target for $35. It runs big so size down, I am wearing an XS. I think it looks very Roller Rabbitor something that Shopbop would sell for $250!

 I really love these shoes. They are a little trendier for me but I think they are fun! 

Amazon Rec: On Monday I shared my finds from March, have you seen that yet? You can find more of my Amazon favorites, here!

Smelling: This candle is adorable. Gives me Serena and Lily vibes for less!

Brand Crush: Trovata

Trovata is a new-to-me brand that I am absolutely loving. The brand offers classic silhouettes with punchy prints and color and a handful of simple wardrobe staples. 

The brand sent me this beautiful floral print navy dress, and I was excited to have an opportunity to wear it while in Charleson! It's the perfect spring piece since it has sleeves and is fully lined but lightweight. It runs true to size; I am wearing a size small. 

This is so specific, but growing up, my great-grammie sewed us American girl doll clothes, and she sewed something in a print so similar to this that it fills me with nostalgia. It's a very small print, so you have to zoom in to really see the colors and pattern, but it's a floral pattern in different hues of blue with a hint of green for the stem, and the centers of the flowers are yellow and brown. It's subtle in the best way. 

The Dress I am wearing in the photos above comes in several different colors/patterns, but if you work in a casual office, the black version will be the perfect summer office staple. It looks so nice with flats but could be dressed up with heels if needed. 

I'm eyeing this adorable ricrac trim shift dress, this stunning eyelet top, and this bright and cheery yellow dress

Blue Sundress in Charleston

Looking back at these photos from our trip to Charleston a few weeks ago is like a warm hug considering it has been in the 20s here in Pittsburgh this week! Not exactly the spring welcome I was hoping for, but I know the warmer weather will be here before we know it! For now, I'll just reminisce about these photos! 

I couldn't believe how in bloom everything was in early March in Charleston. Here in Pittsburgh, we can't even start planting things outdoors until around Mother's Day! I sometimes try to plant things a little earlier and always have to bring things inside or cover them because it gets too cold at night! 

Do you all know the brand CK Bradley? Well, Sail to Sable, and CK Bradley collaborated on a whole collection! You get the punchy CK Bradley prints in the classic Sail to Sable silhouettes we all know and love. It's the perfect coupling! 

They sent me this cute little Dress which is just the perfect errands to cocktails dress. You can wear it bopping around town with sneakers as you see me styling it above, and then dress it up with a clutch, fun earrings, and espadrille wedges for dinner! It runs true to size. Sometimes I find STS to run a little big but this is pretty true to size! I am wearing a small! 

Also, the Sunglasses that I am wearing are under $20, and they are probably the most trendy/stylish sunglasses that I own. Every time I wear them, I feel younger and cool, ha!
