A Thrifty Wishlist For Spring

Now that spring cleaning is out of the way, I have a thrifty wishlist to add some essential pieces back into your wardrobe!

Now that spring cleaning is out of the way it’s all about getting clothes back in that closet.

Just kidding.

But spring cleaning tends to bring out my shopping craving (which really doesn’t happen often because shopping can be very painful okay) because now I have a good idea of what I already have and what I need. And of course, I like to save money wherever I can, so I decided to make this short, thrifty wishlist!

Now that spring cleaning is out of the way, I have a thrifty wishlist to add some essential pieces back into your wardrobe!


I’ve been looking for a good bomber jacket, but this sports one works out pretty well too!


Anyone have Coachella on their minds? I’m not going, but that doesn’t stop me from eyeing pieces that I would definitely wear if I got the chance! I feel like the white one is something you’d see at Free People because it’s more boho, but the blue one is really cute for summertime as well! What I really like about these pieces is that even though I’d probably wear them to any music festival with the right vibes, you can also wear these more casually everyday, especially here in Southern California. Although it does get cooler in the winter months, for the most part we’re blue skies and sun.  


Lace up shirts or bodysuits or anything really with that detail in the front are such a huge thing nowadays. And I have to admit, I really wasn’t a fan of the style until recently just because I felt it was over-hyped almost considering that I didn’t really like the whole look of it. However, my opinion has changed. Not sure what tipped me over, but I’m really digging that trend! I don’t like when they’re toooo low because how am I supposed to wear that? But this one doesn’t look that low, plus I have the perfect skirt I think I can wear with it!


Casual tops are my comfort zone, and I couldn’t resist the cut out detailing at the top. Although I’m not sure whether I’m a huge fan of the fact that it’s longer in the back that in the front, there’s still a part of me that really wants this shirt. 


Something not in my comfort zone is this floral piece, just because I’m not sure how it would look on my body type but it’s so cute how can I not? Besides, now that we’re moving into springtime and slightly warmer weather (which is good because I’m tired of wearing sweaters allll the time) I do want to start wearing cute dresses and rompers because I feel like I stick to shorts and pants way too often!

And that’s about it! I’m slowly figuring out it’s not good to have a ton of things on your wishlist (but I do it all the time, especially for beauty/skincare related items) just because they tend to stay there. I want to actually purchase some things and get to updating my wardrobe!

What’s on your thrifty wishlist? Do any of these items catch your eye?



  • I agree, this sporty bomber alternative looks amazing! I’m 100% on board for lace-up shirts too, I can’t stop adding options to my wardrobe haha.

    • Yay, thanks Gabrielle! Haha and yeah, seems the bomber and the lace up shirts are quite popular – and I reeeally need to add them to my wardrobe haha

  • I am 100% with you on the bomber. I saw a really nice peachy-salmon-y-pink one the other day at Scotch & Soda (Dutch brand?) but alas $$$$ ain’t fo free… I’m heading back to asia in like 2 months so will have to scout for some cheep ones there hahaha. I love how your opinon changed on the lace up tops – actually I feel the same, at first I was like nah but now I have two tops like it! Though the more insane thing is that my mum went crazy for it she has SO MANY of those tops in the same style… it’s hilarious.

    I wish it would just warm up here instead of playing mood swings. The weekend was 16C and today it’s just rainy and cold ugh -___-

    • omg yes I saw one on ig with peachy pink sleeves (the rest was black) with a colorful scene sewn on the back and I was dying I was so in love with it lol. And I can’t even imagine how much it cost. But yesss, there have been quite a few trends where at first I was quuuiteee iffy about but now I’m VERY into them. Glad I’m not the only one who’s opinion has changed for lace ups! Haha and aww, your mom sounds so cute! Yeaah, my mom just sticks to flannels mostly unless it’s for work, but it’s okay it’s her shoe collection I really want 😉

  • I love outfit number 4! I love lace up tops!! Lovely selection of clothes!

    • Oh thanks Mica! I love the back too, I wish I could have featured it but there was no more space lol.

  • The bomber jacket is so cute! I’ve also been looking for a great one! Literally I’m obsessed! Love all your other picks too!

    • Right? I’ve been looking for one but they’re all REALLY expensive haha which is why I’m glad I found this one!

  • I love outfit four! I see so many tops like that but haven’t found one I loved! I was wondering what to wear them with except from jeans and shorts, a beige skirt like that is super cute!

    • I know, I always see lace up shirts (or bodysuits) with jeans, but this picture reminded me that I have a similar skirt so that’s nice haha 🙂

  • Floral print and off-the-shoulder tops are perfect for spring-summer season! I like the bomber jacket too, I bought a similar one last year 🙂 xx


    • I agree! I’ve always been a little iffy about off-the-shoulder tops because I kinda have broader shoulders, but it’s perfect for the season!

  • Definitely love off the shoulder everything!

    • The off the shoulder style is definitely very cute!

  • Rachel Vogt (Rachel Vogt Trend

    Love them all.

  • These are great, I love #2 & #4 the most. Very vintage and festival-chic.

    • That’s what I thought! And since I’m all for festival fashion I had to include them haha

  • These are all such great picks! I’m totally digging that dress. It’s always such a battle inside when I think something looks amazing on the hanger, but I’m not sure how it’ll translate to real life, haha.

    • Yes! Especially with online shopping, it can be a real pain with wondering if it looks that way in real life, or if the sizes are correct.

    Great picks! Thanks for sharing!
