What I Need Now...June Edition

I'll be the first to admit that my mind is on my upcoming vacation.  I still have about two months to go, and I am having lots of fun shopping for it.  I may have also started my Christmas list.  It's never too early, right?

I have been searching for a very low-heeled pair of sandals that would allow me to dress up an outfit, but still be comfortable enough to do some walking in.  It was pretty much love at first sight when I discovered these, a rare mix of super-cute and practical.  
The Whistlestop Sandals by Madewell  $138
 I don't necessarily want this for my trip, but I would love to have it to wear with my rose gold watch.
Roseland Disco Wrap Bracelet  $28
I have come to the conclusion that this will make a great travel bag.  The best part is, it folds into a very compact square that makes it easy to slip into my suitcase if I don't need it.  

Longchamp Le Pliage Large Tote  $145
Anthropologie had a similar jacket to this last year, and I missed out on it.  When I found this version at Nordstrom, I stalked it until it went on sale, and then I pounced.  It is all about the business in the front and party in the back.   The crocheting adds so much uniqueness, and makes it stand out from the pack of surplus green jackets that are just about everywhere today.  It really is a fun piece.

Gibson Crochet Back Surplus Jacket  $70.80 (on sale!)
Obviously, this isn't for my vacation.  I need a new place to store my jewelry, and I love the way this armoire is organized.  I may need to put this on my Christmas list.

Hayworth Jewelry Armoire  $399.95

Of course, I need to commemorate my upcoming trip with new charms for my Pandora bracelet.

Hubby won't like it when I share your post with him, since I would want every item shown.. the sandals, the bag, the armoir!

I admire your pretty but practical choices as I'm feeling like my wish list is wildly impractical, but after a winter of black I'm in the mood for some bright things :) How fun to look forward to a trip--it always makes shopping more fun!

I have WAYYYY too many things on my wish list - I like to think most of them are practical. Like work clothes. I mean, that counts right??

I've been really wanting new sandals as well. All of them are ugly or uncomfortable too me but I feel like I still really want a new pair.
