Summer Wish List

I am on a shopping moratorium, and I really mean it this time. With us closing on our new house in late July, beginning payments on Miss E.’s new school next month and other general debt, I really have to put a halt on the spending. Because, you know, there always seems to be more month at the end of the money.

Any hoo, if I didn’t have a self-imposed (okay, Hubby may be pushing hard for this as well) moratorium on shopping right now, here are a few summer items that the UPS man would likely be delivering to my doorstep.




New polos from Vineyard Vines – VV is currently having a Family & Friends sale for up to 25 percent off any purchase. Just enter the discount code FFSUMMER10 at checkout (Believe me, it shows great restraint on my part to have a discount code in hand, yet not make a purchase). I love the Five-button Fiona polo, as well as the sleeveless polo. Too cute! My MSL, Ms. A., recently purchased the Gold Coast Halter Polo in Sailor’s Red. Adorable!


Blue Waters Patchwork Shorts – Another piece of VV apparel. Sensing a theme here?


Balance Runners – Title Nine offers these running shoes that are good for the road, as well as trail running. If I had a pair of these babies, I'm sure I would be more inclined to run each day. You don't believe me? Yeah, me neither.


A new Life is Good T-shirt – How about this one for the Fourth of July?


Nantucket Basket Purse – This version of the Nantucket Basket Purse is available on etsy by the Up My Sleeve Boutique. Pricey, but such beautiful work. Wouldn’t Miss E. and I look adorable sporting Mommy & Daughter versions? (Uh, don’t worry, I won’t be doing that.)

So, dear readers, what items are on your summer retail wish list?

Main Line, believe me, if UPS delivered the models along with the clothes, I'd have a closet full of J.Crew boys. But, alas, it doesn't seem to work that way...and Bevy, yes, I love the Lilly tunics, too. Wish I could have a different one for each day of the week!

I'll take each of those items in every color...
No pricey items this summer for me either... except paint and a painter, and maybe a window washer, possibly a couch and a small piece of furniture...
Ugh, it adds up, huh?!
Hope to see you all at the 4th parade!

I hear you on the moratorium! I am enjoying them from afar as well.

I am working hard to become a "minimalist" -My Summer wish list is to live with less, to edit and to enjoy life more. I find that all I want are books, art supplies and clean t-s and cool shorts.
