August Wish List: Low, Mid & High End (& Bonus Sale)

My personal shopping wish list is never-ending and always-changing. Here are my latest wants - from the actual affordable things all the way to the "I wish I could" dream items. As always, links below are not affiliate. Have a lovely week!

Shopbop 1 LOW
The low I-can-actually-afford-these-things end of my wishlist. Actually about to hit "buy" on that cuddly BB Dakota coat right now even though I won't be able to wear it for probably another two months.

Shopbop 2 MID
The mid have-to-really-think-about-whether-I-want-to-spend-all-that-money-on-one-item part of my wishlist. The Tory Burch purse is a gorgeous shade of red though.

Shopbop 3 LUXE
The true "wish" part of my wishlist - the luxe items. I'm a sucker for a nice handbag and MCM has made a few of my recent favorite silhouettes. 

 As a bonus, Shopbop's sale items are on sale! Starting today for three days only, get an additional 20% off special sale styles with code TREAT20. This promotion ends on Thursday at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Shop early to get the best picks!

Wishlist at Every Price Point

We are still deeeeeep into summer right now but thanks for all those tricky retailers out there, part of my brain can't help but to think of fall fashion. So my wishlist of the moment revolve around pieces that I could wear now and into early fall.

I thought it'd be fun to show you my Shopbop wishlist broken out into a few price points - from less-than-$100 goodies to splurges that run closer to the $500 range (see below - the links are non-affiliate). Near the top of my wishlist now? Probably those gorgeous silver mules (under $100! ... having trouble narrowing down just one color), olive-hued anything from Rebecca Minkoff, and the sequinned patched Kate Spade beauty.

Late Summer: Take Five

Online browsing lets me virtually play dress-up and put together wishlist outfits. This gives me ideas on new pieces to add to my closet and inspiration on new ways to wear what I already own. Here are a couple outfit ideas that would work for late summer - all with just five pieces or less. They're all pretty much my style since they're cool but not too revealing ... and of course now I also have a bunch of new bags on my wishlist!

(Of course everything below is from one of my fave retailers, Shopbop, and the links are direct).

Outfit 1:
Joie sandals / Levi's jeans / English Factory tops / Kate Spade bags / Stella + Ruby jewelry

Outfit 2:
LNA tops / WAYF skirts / Sam Edelman sandals / Theia jewelry / Sancia bags

Outfit 3:
Free People jackets / Petit Bateau tops / Zimmermann shorts / Cocobelle sandals / Misa totes

Outfit 4:
Alice + Olivia dresses / Zac Posen bags / Hat Attack hats / Kenneth Jay Lane jewelry / Loeffler Randall sandals
