Wednesday Wants

Want #1
{Shoe Clips}

{Via Etsy}
Aren't these little plaid bow clips just the cutest? I'd love to buy a pair to dress up my ballet flats!

I wouldn't be surprised though if Justin is heaving a long sigh and rolling his eyes right now in Afghanistan. "Honey," he would say. "Why must you have bows on all of your shoes? It's not practical, my darling wife!"

To which I'd reply: PRACTICAL SCHMACTICAL!

And then I'd say: YES, BOWS ARE NECESSARY FOR ALL SHOES.



Want #2
{Polka Dot Pants}

{Via Anthropologie}
All right, I don't think I would look good in these pants AT ALL but I still sort of love them. 'Cause I'm a sucker for yellow! And polka dots! 

As for Justin's reaction, he'd probably say: "Oh, dear God." 

Ah, my sweet honest husband! 



Want #3
{Bubble Gum Necklace}

{Via Etsy}
This necklace is light and bubbly and perfect for spring, methinks! 

As for Justin, I've already bought this little beauty so I'll be sure to gauge his reaction in person when I see him in a couple weeks. :)



Want #4
{Book Lust}


This is what I want the most! The mostest! 

I seriously can't wait to read Kristin Cashore's latest novel, Bitterblue, which publishes in early May. I'm so goshdarn excited to dig into Bitterblue's story and I'm already in love with the book's prologue and first chapter. (Read those here.) 

May can't come soon enough! 

So what are you craving this fine Wednesday afternoon?

  1. Sounds lame, but what I MOST want is just a month of doing nothing but reading and writing. Is that too much to ask?

    1. Haha, that doesn't sound lame AT ALL! I think one of my perfect vacations would be to relax by a beautiful beach or lake, reading and eating and writing. If only!

  2. All of these things are adorable and want-able! I don't think I could pull off the polka dot pants. I'm iffy about colored pants in general!

    And YES on Bitterblue! I wants it! *grabby hands*

    1. Ditto on the colored pants! As much as I love the look, I don't know if I should buy a pair if this is just a fleeting fad. Still, I'm quite tempted to buy some kelly green ones!

  4. Ooh, those shoe clips are so cute! WANT.

    I want to finish this ms? And stop feeling like I suck? And have more time to read. But hopefully I'll have LOADS of time to read on the cruise!

    1. Yes, I'm in love with those shoe clips! Love the plaid.

      I can't wait to hear all about your cruise! I'm so envious--the food and the lounging around! And you're totally going to rock this draft, Jess! :)
