I'm a good two months behind on my clothing budget. I haven't had much time or desire to go shopping lately, and I prefer not to force it. I can save up for a bigger purchase that way (my one handbag per year, perhaps?) or at the very least wait until I find items I truly love. I did manage to pick up a couple fun pieces along the way though. Dresses, fun prints and casual boho, plus a hat for an event. What items are you shopping for this spring/summer?

Also - I'm still shopping for engagement photos, but this is my current outfit plan.

Also up for consideration: some things I loved in the fitting room recently. First two photos are from J.Crew Factory, last is BR Factory.
