Weekend Wishlist | Back to Basics 01

Weekend Wishlist Back to Basics
one | two | three | four
five | six | seven | eight 

A weekend wishlist!...On a weekday. A Wednesday. Why? Because alliteration, that's why. 

Wishlists aren't for me. I don't need a lot of things to live but my wishes are endless. Clothes, books, makeup. I can't count them all. I wish for many things but only need few. 

That said, I lack many basic staples needed to make my wardrobe versatile. Since I'll be going off to Singapore next week on a school field trip, I decided that this is the best time to. Yes, I'll be visiting museums and going on workshops for most of the trip. But you should never underestimate the power of people like me. We will always find time to shop. 

I do have a budget to keep to though. So to limit overspending, I decided to make a wishlist. Compile what clothes I need, than the clothes I want. That way I would make use of all the items bought than just one or two. 

I doubt I'll go on an epic shopping spree and buy these all in one trip though. The last time I wanted to go on an epic shopping spree, my frugality got the best of me. Instead, I left with just a nice, cozy sweater with 'Pancakes & Milkshakes' written in cursive.

So what do you think is the best basic piece to have in a closet? I think a chambray shirt and a leather jacket, because they are so versatile and effortless. I'd love to know your thoughts!

  4. I think that having a wishlist actually helps me spend less because it keeps me focused on what I really want instead of buying a bunch of impulse items that I don't really care for or need. A chambray shirt is also one of my staple pieces!

  7. I am in the process of finding a form-fitting mid-budget leather jacket as well. It just complements any outfit so well. :)

  10. I really like your selection, Bash and I also think that basics are the most important things in every closet. Especially, I also love this leather jacket and this floral top <3 Personally I think that the best basics are white/black tees (because they suit to everything) and black shoes (flats or heels).

  19. Love those sunglasses on your wishlist. The essentials for me are a leather jacket, a well fitted black or white t-shirt, a pair of skinny jeans & some basic sneakers.
    Have fun in Singapore :) x

  21. think a pencil skirt is a closet must-have as well as the denim shirt and leather jacket. It can be dressed up with pointed pumps and dressed down with sneakers or loafers.I love those nude flats by the way, I could use a pair like that. Lord knows I need more flats rather than heels in my shoe collection.

  25. I feel like the best basic is just a piece that makes you feel amazing whenever you wear it. It just kind of turns into something that you wear with everything! My current favorite is a pair of flatforms.

  41. I think everything you've got here is a great buy and a wardrobe basic! Except for maybe the chocker necklace, haha. They go in and out of fashion so frequently. I agree that a leather jacket is a good investment, perfect for the cooler weather! :) Hope you have a fun time on your trip!
