What I’m wanting in 2017
It has been awhile since I’ve made any type of travel wish list. I made one in 2015, around the time of my Iceland trip and then I spent about 1 year completing the purchases from that list. I take it slow but steady.
This year, I don’t really need anything, but there are a few things I will not turn down if I come across what I am looking for and if it is the right price. So without further ado…
1. Passport Cover - I currently have one, but the pockets are torn and it is older than 10 years! It still looks great but I am always afraid the passport pages will get bent if it falls out because of the ripped pockets. Since turning 35 last year and wanting to take a new career direction this year (more on that later), I have been trying to streamline my warddrobe to look more like a real adult. That has included buying more neutrals and less clothes that are wildly crazy patterns and colors. And I’ve been sticking with colors and shapes that I know work for me, fitted, skinny jeans, flat boots and cool sneakers, grey and black as my main colors, etc. That said, I’d like something cool with a color pop in my accessories and this includes the passport cover!
2. New laptop, something lightweight - Probably a Macbook, my sister has had one forever and it has not failed her. I know I can get support anywhere and that it will be lightweight and compact. I want to be able to do things on the go and not have to worry about lugging around a huge computer.
3. Leather mini-backpack - I honestly can’t believe I’m listing this. My mom bought a Coach mini-backpack and she sold it on ebay and made money. I was coveting it and I should have bought it. I think it would be a great size, portable, and chic for my camera, wallet, etc. and not look dorky, to be honest. I want to blend in and carry my stuff wihout looking like a tourist by being comfortable and stylish. This is a cute option. This is too (not sure if I believe that it is real).
4. White sneakers - I already have black! White just looks a bit more polished with dresses. I already said I wear flat shoes and they must be comfortable because I am going to be walking in them all day and I do like to wear dresses if the weather is appropriate. The sneakers need to be cute and look good with dresses. I like these, these, and these. Yeah those last ones are not white or polished, so shoot me.
That’s it, such a short list! None of them I need, not at all, but that is why this is a wish list.
