Summer Shopping Wishlist


So I might have mentioned earlier on my blog that I am unseasonably glum these days. Books haven’t been the mental escape that they usually have been and so these days I have turned to more visual distractions – fashion and home decor magazines, and pretty websites.

Here are a few things I saw online and liked a lot.

My summer shopping wishlist

My summer shopping wishlist

I don’t know for how long I have adored this dress from afar, but it seems perfect for summer. I love the polka dots, the colors, and I also love that it’s not bodycon, which means that even though I’m thoroughly out of shape this summer I can still look half-way decent in something like this.

Snubnose has so far not requested for a new swimsuit this summer, but I am pretty sure if I did get her this one, she would love it to bits. Those ruffles at the neckline are just her style.

And of course some casual kicks for Snubnose and me. Snubnose has been wanting laced shoes for some time now, and I can easily see her loving this pair with a heart on it, and pretty flip-flops could motivate me to just take a little more care of my scabby feet.

So these are what I am wishing for now. And why am I putting up my wishlist on my blog? I have absolutely no idea. Like I said, I am bored, unmotivated, and depressed.

It’s not even like I am planning to buy any of the stuff I have put up here 🙁 .

Do you do this? Make random collages off stuff you find on the web? I don’t. I see something, like something, forget about it within the next 2 minutes.

But these are sticking to my head somehow. Like I said I am bored. Money is tight so retail therapy is not an option, and the best escape now is looking at, pinning, and dreaming about aspirational stuff.

How do you beat the blues?

      @dreamzandclouds: Oh, yes. It seems the moment I start complaining on my blog, things start to look up. Fingers are still crossed that what we are hoping will work out will work out the way we want but we are more hopeful now.

      Thanks for asking 🙂

    Do you ever do retail therapy by proxy? When I’m depressed, it cheers me up immensely to go shopping with someone else and help them pick out things to buy. Especially if they’re shopping of presents! That’s the best of all. Just thinking about going shopping for presents is cheering me right up.

    If that’s not an option, I am weirdly cheered up by looking through (you’re going to think I’m so weird) the National Portrait Gallery’s collection online. Or any museum really! The Tate’s got quite a good website that lets you scroll through loads of pictures — cheers me up immensely.

      @readingtheend:disqus I’m not big on window shopping through shopping malls and stuff, but the National Portrait Galler collection, or museum websites sound divine 🙂

    Same here… it is been a long time that I have read books and they don’t seem to help me anymore. I love your choices and I hope you are out of the gloom soon.

      @veens:disqus I think my last big reading slump was after my son’s birthday. It took me almost 8-9 months to read anything so I can understand your state. It will pass 🙂

        3+ years and counting. *sigh*
