{fashion} wardrobe wishlist

I haven't bought a single article of clothing, makeup, nail polish, or any other beauty item in almost three entire months. This is probably a record for the (not so subtle) shopaholic in me!

I'm not going to lie... I'm starting to have withdrawals. I just simply don't have the room for any more clothes in my living abroad closet, as everything I own must fit into two large suitcases and one small one when I eventually move back to the US. I'm not complaining though... the extra money I've saved not shopping has gone towards trips to Amsterdam, Salamanca, and Prague!

But.. a girl can dream of new pretty things, right?!

So without further ado, here is my totally unnecessary online shopping wishlist. Enjoy!

Practical Outerwear:

[1] Canvas Military-Style Anorak, $54.94 - This style coat is alllll the rage in Madrid right now. I know I'll start seeing them disappear as it gets colder, but that isn't stopping me from lusting after one!
[2] Quilted Tweed Puffa Vest, $39.00 - It is totally the southern girl inside of this city girl transplant (hey, I went to college in the south!) that is in love with this adorable vest. Nothing is cozier than a good vest over a comfy sweater.
[3] Leopard-Print Blanket Coat, $49.00 - Europeans loooooove wearing black in the winter. I am usually a fan of pretty statement-making coats, because let's be real... it is all you ever see in the cold, dreary months, but you tend to stick out like a sore thumb if you are wearing a coat with a little personality. This coat is the perfect in-between, with its neutral colors and fun print. Plus, leopard is everything... ammmiright?!

Pretty Sweaters:

[1] Monogram Pop Color Crew-Neck Sweater, $29.94: Once again, the southern college girl is coming out in me! I love this adorable initial sweater! I'm imagining it layered over a chambray button up with a statement necklace. Yep. Done.
[2] Embellished-Raglan Sweatshirt, $19.97: What could be better than waking up late on a cold morning and throwing on a sweatshirt that looks like this? Comfortable but put-together - my perfect combination.
[3] Printed Crew-Neck Sweater, $27.00: On this list simply because the print is really pretty! I think it is the perfect sweater to dress up or dress down.
[4] Graphic Crew-Neck Sweater, $10.97: Yep, I'm jumping on the cute printed animal sweater trend! Plus, how adorable is this pup wearing a bow tie? Layered over a flannel button up with boots, skinny jeans, and a beanie? Hi new favorite outfit!
[5] Fair Isle Cardi Coat, $44.00: I looove oversized sweaters so much! I have to wear a thousand layers during the winter in Madrid because I'm constantly going in and out of freezing and sweating when walking around and then getting on the metro. SO, this style sweater is perfect for me to take off and throw back on when needed. Easy peasy.
[6] Zip-Front Boyfriend Cardi, $39.94: I am a total girly girl. I like to curl my hair and wear lipstick and pretty dresses, and just don't pull off the "sporty" look well. However, I realllly like this sweater. I think it is just fitted enough to still fit my style, but looks totally comfortable as well.

Perfect Layers:

[1] Plaid Flannel Shirt, $26.94: I have to get my hands on a flannel shirt while I'm home! It is the perfect pop of color under a neutral sweater during the winter months. I hope this one is soft and warm!
[2] Scoop-Neck Dolman-Sleeve Top, $12.00: I love dolman-sleeve tops because they are so darn comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. I'm thinking of this one tucked into a skirt with tights, ankle boots, and a leather jacket.
[3] Classic Chambray, $15.00: Classic. Comfortable. Versatile. No more words needed.

Warm Dresses:

[1] Crew-Neck Sweater Dress, $42.94: It has polka dots on it. Need I say more?
[2] Fair Isle Sweater Dress, $46.94: I'm not sure if I would want to spend almost $50 on a white dress, because I'm the clumsiest, messiest person everrrrrr but it is so cute I couldn't resist adding it to the list.
[3] Button-Sleeve Ponte Knit Dress, $29.94: It's a proven fact that ponte knit looks good on EVERYONE! I love the neutral color-blocking on this dress, which leaves room for a fun scarf or colorful coat.

Cozy Accessories:

[1] Honeycomb Stitch Infinity Scarf, $19.94: I actually love every single color offered on Old Navy's website for this scarf. They all look so cozy and inviting. Scarves make suuuuch a difference in my life in the winter months.

[2] Sparkle Knit Hat, $14.94: I've never been interested in wearing cold weather hats before. But that's because I had never needed them before this year! Florida girls wearing beanies? Yeah... not so much. I finally broke down and bought one while in Prague last weekend for like 6 euros. It is just a plain grey one, and gets the job done, but this one is so much cuter!
[3] Monogram Graphic Mittens, $12.94: Just another dose of monogram lovin'!

More Shoes Please:

[1] Glittery Textured Ballet Flats, $26.95: Even though ballet flats typically killlll my feet, I still wear them because... they're pretty. Fashion is pain people! No, but really.. these probably would be super uncomfortable and have no support whatsoever, but they are sparkly. So. There you have it.
[2] Textured Animal Print Flats, $15.00: I love how popular this style of shoe has become. They look great with everything - ankle pants, jeans, skirts, and dresses!
[3] Faux-Leather Ankle Booties, $36.94: As much as I adooore my Frye riding boots, and my black ankle boot heels from Bershka, they just don't go with everything. I want an in-between shoe. Something I can wear out without having to worry about breaking an ankle on the cobblestone.
[4] Laced Short Boots, $38.00: Even though I do not need these shoes in the slightest bit, they are still cute for a casual but put together outfit.

So, there you have it! 24 items that I'm eyeing on Old Navy's website all the way from Madrid. What's on your fashion wishlist these days?

All items are from Old Navy because I always adore their affordable autumn and winter collections and miss that store terribly, not because this post is sponsored (although I wish I were that cool)!

xx, Jen
