My Summer Wishlist

Even though I’m trying to save my money for this month’s goal, I always have a wishlist full of new products I want to try, clothing pieces I want to add to my wardrobe, and swoon-worthy home decor I dream of one day purchasing. And with the Summer season having started only a few days ago, I thought it necessary to share my Summer wishlist with you!

My 2017 Summer Wishlist | Original Caroline


If you read my monthly goals post for June, then you know that I spent all last month decluttering, reorganizing and rearranging my bedroom/bathroom. And due to the complete overhaul, there are a few pieces that I’ve been lusting after for my new and improved room. One thing I really want is a new bedspread and the Fortuna Duvet ($178-228) from Anthropologie is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I love having a reversible duvet instead of one side being plain. Just gotta save a little moola first.

Another item that I’m really wanting is a sleek desk that can double as a vanity. Something with a little bit of storage but not too clunky. This Meredith Vanity Desk ($599) from Pottery Barn is perfect!


I’ve been doing a lot of research lately on good quality skincare products to help with my stubborn acne-prone combination skin. Although new releases and pretty packaging are exciting, I want to invest in products that actually work and won’t cause my skin to break out. There are so many products I want to try, Tatcha being on of them, and I am dying to get my hands on their Balanced Pore Perfecting Water Gel ($65)!


As with skincare, there are a bunch of cosmetic products that I’ve been researching as well. You really can tell the difference between good quality makeup products and products that you buy at the drugstore. I just wish good quality didn’t have to come with such a steep price tag. Anyway, check out a few of the makeup on my Summer wishlist.


The new season lends the perfect excuse to switch things up. Blush pink, chambray, and embroidered detailing are slowly making their way into my usually monochrome wardrobe. I’m getting rather bored with my go-to pieces and I’ve been drawn to more feminine pieces lately. And the new season is a perfect excuse to switch things up.

Airy casual dresses are forever on my Summer wishlist, but my current dresses are looking a little bit worse for wear. The Hinge Embroidered Caftan ($53.40) from Nordstrom looks like it’ll be making it’s way into my closet very soon . . .
