…you just have to look and not buy

I never used to be a fan of window shopping.  I mean, what’s more depressing than looking at things you can’t buy?

But, I’ve come to see that it does have it’s place.  If you can’t (or shouldn’t) buy anything at the moment, for whatever reason, it’s kinda fun to fantasize about what you wish you had in your closet.

Just look at these pretties from Anthropologie.  I would like one, or all, of these please!  If I had to pick just one, it would be a tie between the dot blouse and the camo chinos.  Only because our cold weather won’t be around for long and I can wear both of those when the weather is warmer.  The dress would be gorgeous for a spring wedding, but sadly, I have no weddings coming up.

And while I’m at Anthro, I’ll also take this layered lace tank, this top in yellow, this blue blouse,
these distressed boyfriend jeans and maybe these open toe booties too!

You know, since I’m already dreaming, I’ll just add all of this to my imaginary closet.  I’m not even sure it would all flatter me, but it’s just so pretty I can’t help myself.

Okay, moving on from Anthropologie…

I’ve seen this combo of black & white with green (technically the dress below is navy/white, but it looks black) a few times and I absolutely LOVE it.

I desperately need a new green cardigan.  I love my dark green one, but it doesn’t quite fit all occasions and my other green one is off a shade or two so I rarely even wear it.  I need one like the color above!  I’ve been looking on and off for probably a year without any luck, but I guess I need to look harder since they are apparently out there somewhere!

I found these two online today.  The JC Penney one (on right) looks pretty good for the price.

Then of course I had to go looking for a black & white dress too.
