I don't know about you guys, but in every two seasons I will refresh my wardrobe for the next half year or so. Today, I've come up with a little 'Spring Wish List' of mine. Can't wait for more sunshine to come, so that I can get myself covered up with all the lovely pieces that I've been eyeing on.

#Rise of the 70s: Fringe.

Everything so far for the spring is really going into that BOHO direction. Fringe is everywhere! Dresses, jackets, pants, and of course.. BAGS! I laid out 3 different options. Personally, I love the Meli Melo Messenger! A mini black strap shoulder bag goes perfectly well with a simple springy outfit.

With the 70's back in the game, many designers has taken the inspiration from industry uniforms and brought back the jumpsuit trend! I've always loved jumpsuits (Though I'm not very tall, many of my jumpsuits can only be worn after alteration), I like the loosen up feeling, and how it looks like a well matched top and trouser. All you need is a pair of heels and some statement accessories! I've drawn out some jumpsuits from the shows, and picked out an alternative & budget version from J.Crew.

 

#Rise of the 70's  partIII: Flare Pants/ Jeans.

If you tell me a year ago that flare pants are in trend, I would probably laugh. But this year, not only fringe travelled back from the 70s, so did flare.  And they did the come back BIG! I'm still a little insecure about wearing them, since I can't remember the last time I put a pair on. However, the white flare pants from Alice +Olivia certainly look really stylish! what do you guys think about flares? Share your thoughts in the comment below.

The best thing about spring/summer is that I can wear as many shirt dresses I want. It's classic and refined. And they go so easy with sandals and espadrilles! Don't worry if you think a plain button up shirtdress is too boring, just add a belt or any other accessories, then you'll be all layered up, and ready to go! I've been eyeing on the Halston Heritage shirtdress  for a while, it is actually still in my shopping basket, finger crossed for some online sale soon!

#Jo Malone Red Roses Cologne.

First of all, the colour of this fragrance itself already calls for spring. The Red Roses Cologne has a subtle gentle floral scent, simple, fresh & elegant, just like spring!

When I first saw the Balenciaga Spring ad on the Internet, I had this really HUGE grin on my face. I love the airy stye and the off white & lavenderish colour combination. And especially, those WEDGES! I searched almost every Balenciaga store in Taipei, but apparently they don't have it. So here I am, trying to find some alternatives on the Internet. It turns out, some are just as beautiful as those on the campaign.

 

Okay, this is my top 7 spring wish list! What are your wish list for the coming warm weather? share it in the comments :)
