I wore the shorts version of this outfit for a shopping trip on Thursday! I like the skirt even more, but I went for comfort with shorts, even though I don't love the inseam length on this particular pair. It can be really helpful to determine your ideal inseam length(s) before you shop. For reference, the pair I'm wearing is about 2 inches. Over time I have figured out that my ideal inseam length is 4 inches. Inseams range from .5 inch to 2 inch daisy dukes, to a mid-range of 4-6 inches, and then the next step is generally a bermuda measuring 11-15 inches. Figuring out what inseams you prefer and looking for that length on the tag before you try shorts on can save time. What inseam length do you prefer?

Also... this might be my favorite shopping list of all time, because I want all of it!! I only own two items so far (the LOFT and Limited tops), however, I am on a hunt for all of these or similar dupes very soon. I'm loving tops with a bohemian feel that have scarf print, crochet details and paisley prints, as seen in the top row. Crochet skirts are also on my wish list (I'm way late to this party) as well as the perfect yellow sheath top (peplum optional). I loved the Limited striped top when I tried it on so much, I had to have it!
Last but not least, I'm loving these Calvin Klein shoes but not the price tag so I will keep looking, and I've had my eye on this emerald graphic tee for a couple weeks and after this week's events, well, I just might take the plunge. (I spent four years living in the North End, Central Square and Belmont.) What items are on your wish list this month?
