Birthday Wishlist

Is this a wishlist or a summer mood board? Maybe a little of both?
I know the raffia bag is basically a reimagining of the Japanese bamboo bag, which I have and therefore do not need another similar bag, but still, isn't she gorgeous?

When it comes to perfume I'm terribly picky, and I ordered a sample of Le Labo's Ylang 49 over six months ago. I apply it sparingly, and after much deliberation, I think I'm ready to commit. I don't need a size that large, which would probably last me for the rest of my life considering how little perfume I wear, that was just the better image - you know how it is.

The raffia slides popped up in a google image search for something entirely different, and you can imagine I was quickly distracted by them. My size isn't available online, but they might be in the store. I might want to go look for them. I'm not supposed to be shopping.

Thirty-three is now just two weeks away.

  1. Ooh so pretty! This is a perfect Summer outfit, haha. I'm so bad at wearing perfume these days I have a ton but I just never put it on.

  2. OMG...those slides would totally go with some jeans I just got!!

  3. Ok, I'm dying over that jumpsuit! So cute for spring.

  4. Love EVERYTHING on your list. Super cute and versatile.


  5. So many cute pieces! I have a pair of hoops like that from Madewell and I find myself wearing them ALL the time!

  6. That bag is to die for! So cute and I love the detail!


  7. Oooo I say yes to all of this! Definitely fit for a birthday queen <3

  8. My 39th is coming up in a couple of weeks and you've inspired me to make my own list!

  10. Great choices Lydia, the slides are something i could easily fall for.
    I had not idea you were not into perfumes.

  11. This would be the perfect summer outfit! And you know me, I'll always suggest buying another bag, haha! I think that one is pretty, although admittedly it is similar the the bamboo one you already have. Birthdays are the perfect time to treat yourself ;)

    Hope you're having a lovely week with a nice weekend ahead of you :) We have a busy but fun one planned!

  13. Ummmm I definitely wouldn't mind having any of these for myself as well! Gorgeous taste, girlfriend. Can't wait to see how you celebrate your birthday!

  14. So exciting that your birthday is coming up! And I'm loving your birthday wishlist! The jumpsuit and bag is my favorite!

  15. That jumpsuit is so pretty! Definitely perfect for the spring/summer season. Happy Early Birthday! xo

  16. I think thirty-three is worth celebrating, but that is perhaps because I hit that milestone six months ago and have, for the most part, enjoyed this age far more than I enjoyed thirty-two. And really, if summer clothes are in stores by the time your birthday comes around, why not use it as an excuse to add to your summer wardrobe. Personally, I'd happy wear this whole outfit an evening out :)

  17. That handbag is EVERYTHING! I am completely obsessed with it. Also, adore this full look you have created!

  20. This fellow April baby needs to make a wishlist too! Ha! I love your picks, and I can see why you were distracted by those slides, they really are so pretty. And birthday gifts (even if they're for yourself) don't count as shopping, right? ;)

  21. This whole outfit is so vacation-ready! I would love to see you wear them!
