Lust List

I'm on a spending freeze as we're planning a vacation at the beach for this fall/winter, so we're saving up for that all-inclusive time in the sun with another couple. In the mean time, I've been lusting over a few different items, even though I'm being good and not purchasing.

This Kate Spade Composition Notebook phone cover

The "Dirty Shirley" Lilly Pulitzer laptop tote for my new laptop that I get when I start at CSS


And a cute dress from Lilly Pulitzer to go with my new accessories...
Is there anything that you're lusting over? Do you put yourself on a spending freeze when you're saving up for something big?

I go on spending freezes, but only because I don't need materialistic things. I am that strange girl that doesn't really feel the need to shop, and I love seeing the money add up in the bank ;) I have a vacation fund and we pay into it every month. That way we can take vacations whenever we want and not have to feel guilty about it!

Love all of those! That dress is gorgeous. I would be the friend telling you that you totally needed it for the first day at your new job!

But, since having kids. I have totally learned to save and I would say, stash $10-20 a week aside for that special splurge at the end of the month!

Love your lust items!! I have a slight Lilly obsession :)

We have a separate savings account just for our vacation fund, and we set aside a portion of each paycheck. That way we never really notice the money was there in the first place, and it's sitting there waiting for us when we vacation!

I love all of them! We always have intentions of not spending but rarely get away with it, it is our downfall :( Sadly some of it is not our own doing, just life stuff comes up you know? Congrats to you for staying strong :)

That iphone case is SO cute! And it's so you :) Oh a spending freeze would be so hard for me! I don't think I ever go into full blown spending freeze, but now that we have a hefty mortgage payment every month we are just more careful in general I guess. My tendency is to spend and Caleb's is to save so I guess we balance each other out somewhat :)

The phone cover looks pretty cool

I'm on a spending freeze at the moment too, due to wedding expenses and I'm totally lusting over all sorts of fabulous jewelry!
