Spring/Summer 2019 Wardrobe Planning

Drafting this post, I’m quite glad that I pretty much have everything that I’m planning to wear in the S/S. Or rather, I plan to just wear the stuff that I already own because it’s not sustainable to revamp the wardrobe every season. As much as I like to spend my time thinking about clothes, it’s hardly justifiable to restart my wardrobe twice a year.

What I’m trying to do this time is to pack all other clothes that I don’t plan on wearing in the Spring and Summer. And only grab from the storage if really necessary. So I can have less crowded wardrobe and I can actually remember which clothes I currently have on rotation.

Tops

  • Linen t-shirt
  • Camisole
  • Cotton long-sleeve t-shirt
  • Cotton t-shirt
  • Lightweight sweater

Bottoms/Dresses

  • White jeans
  • Cargo pants
  • Tailored pants
  • Cropped jeans
  • Midi dress

Blazers/Jackets

  • Leather jacket
  • Worker jacket
  • Suit blazer
  • Lightweight puffer

Shoes

  • Ankle boots
  • White sneakers
  • Espadrilles
  • Flat sandals

Accessorize

  • Black cross body bag
  • Scarf
  • Leather belt

I’m so excited to start wearing more of my Carhartt jacket, Isabel Marant Dicker boots, and my Zara midi dress. Because I stopped wearing some of my clothes during the colder seasons, I always feel like I get to wear ‘new’ clothes without buying more stuff when it’s warmer.

Do you have any piece of clothing that you can’t wait to wear again once the weather gets warmer?

On My Wishlist

After tallying how much money I spent so far in 2019, I feel like I’m regaining control in terms of shopping impulse. Okay, I did spend €850 for a bag. I know it’s an exorbitant amount of money to spend on a small cross body bag. But it was somewhat a planned purchase. I knew 2019 is going to be the year that I bring that bag back to my life. I also feel like 2019 is the year that I finally buy the things I have been meaning to get for yonks. Some of them are below.

Ace & Tate Allen Sunnies

I have been wearing glasses since I was 8, so give or take 18 years. Yet I still don’t have prescription sunglasses. It’s quite bonkers, isn’t it? (Yes). I have been putting off buying prescription sunglasses for years. Not quite sure why. I guess I grew tired of either having to wear contacts if I want to wear sunglasses or I grew tired of wearing my sunglasses over my normal glasses. It’s time to stop being weird.

Black Zipped Hoodie

I’m still not 100% sure which hoodie I’ll buy to be honest. Those two options are the ones currently on sale on Zalando. So thats why they’re there. I’m still trying to not buy things online if I can help it. So I might visit the shops or an outlet soonish to look for a hoodie. Pro tip, I’ll start looking on the kids section because they tend to be cheaper. Just to put into context why I want a zipped hoodie is because I only have one right now that I bought 7 years ago. I want a bit of variety.

Balenciaga Cap

I need a new cap that fits. Does it need to be Balenciaga? No of course not hahaha. Do I want it to be Balenciaga? Yea, kinda. I’m 95% I won’t be buying this, although I’m 100% I’ll be buying a new cap. Do you sense the dilemma here?

3-Tier Stainless Steel Indian-Tiffin

I’ve been trying to bring my own lunch to work. My company does provide lunch so it’s not necessary for me to do this. But sometimes I just want to eat some warm meal. We do have the salad bar and a selection ingredients to make sandwich. But yea, nothing can beat chicken with rice sometimes so I want a lunchbox to bring the rice, the chicken, the hot sauce, and the veggies separately. I hate plastic containers because they’re hard to wash. Let’s see how this one fares. Although it’s gonna be Ramadan next week, so there’s no need for me to bring lunch LMAO.

Apple Watch Leather Strap

This is definitely not a need because it’s not like I can’t wear my watch without buying leather strap. I just feel like sometimes my outfit is way too dressy to wear the sport band that comes with the watch. But I haven’t decided which one I’ll go for in terms of texture, color, and finish. I have the tendency to overthink my purchases and this one is no different.
