Spring Wish List

I am getting so excited about Spring! Picnics, courtyard drinks, reading outdoors, fruit salads, longer daylight hours, bright colours ♥ If only the weather would hurry up and bring on the sunshine. I have put together a bit of a retro-inspired wish list below, although I am trying to save some pennies so sadly I will only be picking up a few of these things. The Mimmi bow heels are on the top of my list! What's on your wish list? x

♥ Emily and Fin floral dress
♥ Chrome Hearts retro sunglasses
♥ Modcloth 'Game Set Thatch' shoulder bag
♥ River Island apple print dress
♥ Swedish Hasbeens 'Mimmi' bow heels
♥ Ferragamo patent red bow flats
♥ River Island tie-front shirt
♥ Emily and Fin red 50s skirt
♥ Topshop gingham high waisted retro bikini
♥ Aldo beach tote
♥ American Apparel wide brim hat
♥ Fosse white espadrilles

missklicious said...

Those floral dresses are gorgeous. I'm looking forward to warmer weather, longer daylight hours and picnics too, Love spring!

Joan said...

Pretty dresses! I keep eyeing the dresses on Modcloth but sadly the shipping cost keeps deterring me from ordering. :(

Oh my goodness: want, want, and WANT! Oh, why does it have to be turning fall here instead of turning spring...?

Bonsai said...

This is all so YOU! I think you should get the apple print dress, bikini and cute basket.

gee said...

that apple print dress is amazing.
i want EVERYTHING on your wish list. :P

Marisa Noelle said...

Oh my, I really want that apple print dress...actually, I want your whole list! I had the Mimmi bow Hasbeens on my list to buy all summer, but I had to keep reminding myself that buying a house came first. I almost broke in when I found them on eBay for a significantly reduced price. Can't wait to see more of your spring outfits:) xx

Monica and Whitney said...

Ah! I want that lemon dress! Loving your blog, so glad I found it.

Ashley said...

Oh boy am I jealous! We're almost on the verge of winter here. This makes me so happy and anxious for spring! Only 6+ months to go...hehe.

I love the idea of that white blouse with the red & white gingham skirt! Too cute.

P.S. I'm still in the process of loving my body too, on most days. It's difficult, isn't it?! Hope to see your post!

The apple dress it super cute! Where did you spot it? It's not on their website...

Lisa said...

Oh I love everything!!! Hmmm, maybe I should just plan to win powerball tonight and that would solve my dilemmas. In the meantime, I think that Aldo bag and I have a date with destiny.

On a different note, I'm very down on Modcloth. I'm finding the fabric so poor on many of the things there, it is fast falling off my favourites list.

Sonya Harris said...

These are perfect Elyse! Gorgeous frocks! Amazing taste. You've inspired me to buy a pair of espadrilles this Spring. Thanks for voting for me lovely. <3

Elyse (Give Me Bows) said...

Thanks ladies ♥

Aelie – it is so sad that the ebay seller with the vintage red ferragamos would not ship to Australia for me :(

Joan – I know! I wish shipping was cheaper. They do have the 10% discount code for international shoppers which helps a little!

Marisa – good on you for staying strong! I have been watching ebay for them for MONTHS but they haven’t come up in my size.

Monica and Whitney – thanks ♥

Jodesja – I spotted the apple print dress on ASOS, it’s on sale too! :)

Lisa – that’s such a shame! I do find that you have to be super careful and look and the brand and material quite closely. I have been having a bit of bad luck lately with online purchases not fitting properly. Need to learn how to alter clothing, like taking up the waist on dresses as I am quite short! :)

Jo said...

The second dress is oh-so gorgeous! <3 I am crazy about fruit print! Want want want!

I have had that apple dress in my asos cart for a while but I am trying to stay strong and save!

Great picks!


Roisin said...

Oops Elyse, sorry if this comes through twice or anything but my computer is being a bit funny. I'm wearing that Emily and Fin dress right now, and I really like it - even in our autumnal weather, it works really well with tights! I also have that River Island dress and I adore it, you should give into temptation and treat yourself :)

Amber Rose, Laughing With Broken Eyes said...

Your wishlist is the wishlist of my dreams. xo

Elyse (Give Me Bows) said...

Thanks girls!

Amber Rose - thanks darling! ♥

Roisin - you are the reason I fell in love with the apple print dress! I saw it on your blog and you looked gorgeous in it ♥ It's on sale so I think I might treat myself ;)

Roisin Muldoon said...

Elyse, you should definitely go for the River Island dress, it's perfect for the spring :) As for the Emily and Fin dress, if you'd be interested in getting it I could post it to you from the UK (if that's cheaper for you) x

Ashley S said...
