Lust List Vol. 38

The change of seasons is always difficult, because I love to shop, and when a ton of new things are launched all at once, I just want to buy EVERYTHING! This year, I'm trying to focus on a few basic things that I actually really need.

I bought this skirt, and it's absolutely amazing. It is adorable with the lace detail and fits like a dream, plus its appropriate for work. I highly recommend. Another thing I've been big on this season (and last) is the off the shoulder trend. I'm obsessed with the Tibi tops, but I haven't been able to fork over that much $ yet for one. I love the color and cut of this burgundy version - it's gorgeous! A chunky, block heel has been another thing to-do on my list. I need a cute pair of sandals that aren't sky high that I can wear for work and play. I love this Joie pair, and even though they are a bit high, I think they look comfy and wouldn't be too bad to walk in. 

One piece bathing suits are all the rage this year - we all knew this trend would come back! I ordered this one and this one from J.Crew, and they are both absolutely perfect on. Super flattering and a great more modest option for times when you really don't need to be in a teeny bikini. Lastly... the bucket bag. I've had my eye on them for over a year now. I love the Mansur Gavriel style, but this one by Cuero & Mor is just so unique and beautiful.

PS - I just realized the link for the fringe shawl is wrong. You can find it here!

The Cold Shoulder

As I'm sure most of you have been seeing lately, shoulder baring tops are SO IN. I have to say, I'm not one who jumps on trends normally, but this one is a classic, and baring a little shoulder is so sexy to me. I picked up a few tops last year (here and here), but have my eye on so many more this year, especially dresses - LOVING that look! Below are a few of my top picks. I'd recommend hopping on this bandwagon ladies!
