Money May Not Bring Happiness, But This Shopping List Is Making Me Feel Things

Sometimes, I get so caught up in searching products for particular details of a story—like the best basics or certain trends—that I forget to just peruse through sites and pick out what I like, no strings attached. As the weather gets warmer, I've been on the lookout for fun items that simply make me happy and ones that I know I'll get major wear out of simply for that reason. After months of halting my spending and only investing in loungewear, I'm ready to add a dose of extra to my wardrobe, and my shopping list below reflects exactly that. Of course, I don't have the funds to buy everything, so I'm relaying all the items I've been eyeing in case something piques your interest. Sharing is caring, right?

Keep on scrolling for funky prints, glass jewelry, beaded handbags, and plenty more items that will be bringing in the compliments like there's no tomorrow. Simply creating this list brought joy to my fashion-loving heart, so I hope it brings the same to you reading it. 

I dream about this bag on a daily basis.

It's hard to find affordable printed dresses that don't look cheesy, but H&M has you covered.

Like every other pair of printed pants from Reformation, these are sure to sell out.

I promise I'm not biased when I say we've made the perfect mule.

The crisscross detail will forever make me smile.

I know it's spring, but I have these on the way in the mail. I think I'll petition to make it boot season year-round. 

You can't tell me this isn't cute.

I recently bought a color-block Nanushka leather skirt on sale, and it's the best thing I own. This one is next on my wish list. 

There's something about beach hats that just makes me dream of summer. This one will match any outfit.

The name is right—I want to wear these on vacation.

I'm surprised these are still in stock.

Everyone on the internet is quite literally obsessed with this bag, and I don't blame them.

At this point, I consider green a neutral.

This gives me "grandma dollhouse" vibes in the best way possible.

I love how well the pearls pair with the jade.

I have way too many Rixo dresses on my wishlist and this one is at the top, along with this mermaid one.
