Wanting for Spring Time

This Spring I have really been aware of pieces I want. Pieces that are versatile, timeless, and awesome. Since I would get in a lot of trouble if I went out and bought all these things, I thought I would share them all here and hopefully satisfy my superficial needs. Are you coveting any of these?


The denim shorts I'll probably get - I have a pair that I'm not crazy about the shape or wash, so I'm thinking of doing a DIY. But aren't all of these items fabulous? Solid and patterned maxi dresses, a classic trench (I have one, but it's too big - I'll probably sell it - email me if you're interested), white skinnys and oxford flats! Bangles - they are everywhere! A quilted, chain-strap purse! Red Hunter wellies! Classically shaped tortoise shades! Ah, I feel better already. 

*A lot of these items are priced way out of my price-range, but I wasn't posting actual items I wanted, 
just an item to represent what I want. Does that make sense?

The oxfords, green jacket, and white skinnies are all on my spring must have list as well. I can't decide if the green jacket will be springy enough to purchase...Perhaps in 3/4 sleeve.

Ashley said...

The oxfords I have and I love them. I have also had my eye on the chain-strap purse but it's hard to find one affordable and nice.

Jesse said...

i've been wanting the hunter rain boots for awhile, i need to just get over myself and get them! and yes to the maxi dresses, i always need more:)

The Suburb Experiment said...

Each year is THE year I'm going to buy white jeans and then I never end up getting them. Maybe this will finallyb be it! Great list - you're right, a lot of them are classics.

Want some Hunters so bad!! Also it would help if you listed where each of the items is from and how much they are :)

Gertrude said...

I *really* need wellies. I bought some great winter boots two years ago for our unending winter snow and frigid temps up here. Those were a wonderful investment. Now onto some spring wellies...!! :)

Take care, Linley!

Laura said...

Bethany said...

Man oh man, those white skinnies are hot! I feel like I will look super awkward in them though, hmm, I'd have to try those on first :) Also BANGLES hello! I need those.

Eclectic Flair said...

Erica said...

Oh, I want oxfords so bad! I keep hoping to see them at the thrift store but to no avail. And even my husband knows I want a maxi dress, that's how much I've been talking about it.

Hannah said...

Hunter rain boots are on my list, just wish they weren't so expensive. I need to thrift a pair!

Classy Chassy said...

White skinny jeans, denim shorts, oxfords, and maxi dresses! ALL on the top of my want list. Love!

Lydia Marie said...

I love the wellies and the trench! Unfortunately I live in the desert so it'd be pretty silly for me to get those.

sarah said...

i want oxford flats like those! :)

Mel said...

LOVE IT!!
I am coveting a pair of white skinny jeans and a maxi dress!

I got a nice pair of oxfords from Steve Madden. They are really comfortable and cute. I love them!

Amy said...

I clicked on the printed maxi because I thought it was soo pretty, then immediately exited the tab when I saw the price tag. Darn. Cute choices, though!

Linley,

I think that we were meant to be friends. First, I was thinking of doing a similar post this afternoon. Second, I love your style. Third, I am pretty sure that I have been searching for all of those same pieces--minus the maxi dress. I am just too short.

My friend Emily & I just started a fashion blog called 20 Somethings. You should check it out. 20somethingfashion.blogspot.com

Happy Friday!

Melody said...

the white skinnys, watch and maxis are all on my list!

I was on a mission to find oxfords and I finally bought similar ones! My bf has Ray Bans so I just borrow his. lol

Grace Marie said...

Lauren said...

Too funny - I JUST got a pair of red Hunters this week! And I am dying for some white skinny jeans - great minds think alike! :)

Natalie said...

Natasha said...

I'm on the look out for a few of the same things...cute maxis, white pants that fit and aren't too see through...and I love the bangles!

Ginger said...

I neeeeeeed oxfords. Seriously, I am prepared to go without food to get them. Great spring wish list - and if you did happen to go out and buy them all at once, your secret would be safe with me.

Bekah: Matters of Merrymaking said...

I am definitely leaning more towards purchasing a quilted purse... probably of the F21 variety.

I do want white jeans though!

The Pretty Life Anonymous said...

Those dang wellies kill me. I love. And I can't resist a fab trench, so yes, I am in love with your picks. Not that I'm surprised.

I love your Spring Wish list! I love the white pants trend, and would get a pair if I found a pair that were flattering... as for the rest of your picks, I would scoop them up in a heartbeat if I had the cash to go on a shopping spree... darn those budgets!

Linley,
I recently purchased some of these items and for cheap! I wanted to share. I got white skinnys at Target for $24, oxfords at forever21.com (they have every color) and a gold watch on amazon.com. I don't know if you happen to see it on our blog, but it was sold out for a while and they just got more. I love everything you have posted, especially the bangles, bangles and bangles!! Here is the watch in case you would like to get one for yourself! I got one, my little sis got one and my cousin got one. There is another on overstock, if you like that one, also featured in this post. http://styledby3.blogspot.com/2011/03/gold-watches-for-natalie.html Can't wait to see what you get and how you outfit it!!

For Goodrich(er) or Poorer said...

In regards to the oxfords, I have a pair that I LOVEEE and they're not expensive at all. I've had them since around September and have yet to wear them out! Just make sure and read the reader reviews in regards to size-I ordered half a size bigger.
