Spring Wish List

I’m really not much of a shopper but there is something about the start of a new season that does make me feel a little more “spend-y” than usual. Here are a few of the things I have my eye on this season:

  • I love a jumpsuit and this one looks light and comfortable.

  • I pretty much live in my Dansko clogs (these ones) but would love a sandal version—my friend Kristan has these ones and I love them. They’re definitely next on my list.

  • Who doesn’t need a nice tote bag? I’m a fan of this light pink for some reason lately.

  • Is anyone else feeling this paper bag waist trend? I haven’t tried it yet but I love the look.

  • I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this curling wand and I’ve been thinking it might be time for me to upgrade from my drugstore curling iron.

  • More light pink springiness—I’m a sucker for a neutral mani in the spring.

  • I just bought a pair of wedges that look a lot like these ones and I really like them.

  • I got this as an impulse purchase at Target the other day and I can’t stop using it—it seriously feels amazing.

  • Love the look of this romper—like fancy adult pajamas. I’m here for that.

Do you ever shop specifically for a new season?

This is a Post About a Sale
Gap Sale | Freckled Italian

I’m not usually one to get excited about sales online and especially not in stores, but earlier this week I was putting together a very short list of things I might need for fall and winter (a rain jacket, a hat) and realized that Gap was having a pretty awesome sale. Watching Sophie grow so rapidly these past 9 months has me pretty much refusing to pay full-price for any of her clothes, so I decided to buy a few things for her own little fall and winter wardrobe! Now I’m even more excited about autumn’s arrival and daydreaming about what she might wear for her birthday and Thanksgiving.

There’s tons of stuff on sale (I have my eye on these joggers), I just went a little crazy on the baby stuff. Here’s what I got for Sophie (and a couple of things I wish I had grabbed…although there’s still time):

  • The hat that started it all—I kept thinking it would be so cute to get Sophie a pom pom hat for the winter and this is the one I got.

  • I ordered three of these little onesies: the polka dot one you see below, a striped one, and a really pretty yellow color that I loved.

  • I didn’t get this dress because they don’t have the size we need but holy cow did I love it. If one of you has a younger baby please get it and send me a picture so I can live vicariously through you.

  • Sweet little denim joggers. I mean, come on.

  • Sophie has a pair of lighter overalls that she wore this summer, but I love these darker ones for fall and winter (probably paired with one of the long-sleeved onesies!).

  • Another hat—this one I found after I placed my order and am wondering if it’s worth ordering on its own and paying for shipping. What do you think?

The sale goes through the 15th, just make sure to use the code COZY at checkout! Like I said, I don’t usually post about sales like this but I texted enough friends about it that I figured I might as well share on the blog, too!

Fall Wish List: Black + Grey + Light Pink

It's that time of year again! Fall is just a couple weeks away and I'm dreaming of jeans and sweaters and boots as usual. This time, though, I'm also thinking about a few things I'd like to add to my wardrobe that might make life a little easier with a newborn (or, to be honest, just getting excited about fitting into regular pants again soon--fingers crossed)! I have a feeling that I'll be focused a bit more on comfort over style this fall and winter, but that doesn't mean I can't indulge in a few beautiful pieces! My wardrobe is already mostly black and stretchy (hello, leggings) and I haven't had to buy a ton of maternity stuff, so I think I'll be able to cruise right through labor and delivery and bringing home baby without having to splurge on too many new things for my closet this season.

Having said that, here are a few things I've got my eye on:

  • I'm always on the lookout for a classic baseball cap that I can throw on when my hair is crazy but I don't feel like wearing a beanie or a floppy hat. This one looks like it could work, and I kind of love the light pink.
  • I have a sweater that's kind of like this but it's more of a turtleneck than a poncho--I feel like this one would be perfect over a tank top to make nursing in public a little easier (although it would be gorgeous and comfy whether you're breastfeeding or not).
  • I've been flirting with the idea of getting an Apple Watch--I think it would actually help me unplug a bit more and keep my phone in my bag instead of constantly scrolling through social media without a second thought. I like the idea of just knowing when you get messages or calls and responding from there, and now that the new one will have cellular service I feel like going on walks and things without a phone would be much more manageable. I never really felt like they were remarkably beautiful, though, but I'm really loving the metal band on this one.
  • This is a wish list, so I can add $400 sunglasses, right? These are way out of my budget but I love how big they are--perfect for slapping them over a sleep-deprived and makeup-less face on a Saturday morning coffee run!
  • I threw away my post-college skinny jeans a few months ago (they didn't fit me anymore, even before I got pregnant), and I think I owe it to myself to buy a new pair so I'm not constantly in athletic wear or jeggings...I think these are just perfect. (I'm a sucker for a high waist.)
  • Fossil recently sent me this bag in brown and it is the perfect fall piece. It matches everything and is big enough to carry a water bottle, snacks, my wallet, and any other stuff I need on my way out the door--sometimes I even throw a sweater in there! It also has a little clutch that zips up, which I love using for lip balm and to keep my keys from getting lost. 
  • We got a lot of rain in the Bay Area last fall and winter which reminded me that I don't really have a good rain coat. This one is almost perfect, I just wish it were a tiny bit shorter. I'm still looking for the perfect one, but if I don't find something by October or November I may end up ordering this one because it's really lovely and also has a hood, which I definitely need.
  • While we're on the subject of rain, the only rain boots I have are ankle-length, which are cute but not exactly practical. I really love the classic look of these simple black Hunters.
  • Finally, a good pair of casual sneakers. I'm not really a jeans and sneakers girl (I usually opt for Chucks if I'm going in that direction), but I think a comfy but cute pair of tennis shoes would be great for running around town or walking around with Ender and/or the stroller after the baby gets here. These New Balances are so cute and minimal enough that I think they'd go with everything.

What's on your wish list this fall?
