Things I'm Craving (But Can't Afford)

Musings Dress

Musings Dress in Red   $98 (Anthropologie)

I tried on this dress in gray in a medium and it fit like a dream.  If I had seen the red in the store, I probably would have broken my budget.  I’m exercising so much restraint to not buy this right now.

Catalina Bolero

Catalina Bolero  $118 (Anthropologie)

This little wool jacket is so gorgeous, and it looked great when I tried it on.  But I wonder at the practicality of buying a 3/4 sleeve wool jacket when I live in Florida.  It would still be awesome to have this for the few cold days we do get here.

Silk Cotton DressSilk Cotton Dress  $128 (Boden)

I’m really craving some 3/4 sleeve dresses lately, and this is by far my favorite one.  The materials are good, the colors are nice, and I know Boden has good quality.

Leather Gloves

Leather Gloves  $49.50  (J Crew)

Technically I could afford this by spending one month’s $50 free day on them.  But it only gets cold enough for gloves about five days a year here.  Still, they make me swoon.  And they’re lined with silk.

Cashmere Shawl Popover

While we’re at it, I really want a cashmere sweater.  Sigh.

    That bolero is DIVINE. I’m sure you could find a way to work it around Christmas … or whenever it dips below 50 degrees down Florida way!

    I absolutely love that little wool jacket! It’s funny, I was thinking of how it wouldn’t work in my wardrobe because it’s too COLD for 3/4 length sleeves- guess that happens with polar opposite climates!
