OBSESSIONS: Stripes and 70s

Hello lovelies! I can't believe it's already coming up on Spring... it seems like just a month ago, it was Fall, school had just started, I turned 16, and got my driver's license. Now I'm less than 50 school days away from finishing 11th grade (ah!!!!!) and already well into the college process (again - ah!!!!!).

I've spent a lot of my free time lately online shopping, so I thought I'd compile a little visual of what I'm loving (and trying to find some way to afford) this season.

Stripes (and KENZO in general)
I am in love with striped tops right now. They're so classic, and go with nearly every style of bottom! Long sleeve stripes (either sweaters or tops) are making me super happy. Also, I'm loving all of Kenzo's graphic sweaters. Anyone wanna give me $300 so I can actually own one instead of searching them up on the internet daily?

Chunky Sandals
I've been in love with chunky shoes since the trend started a few years ago, but I reaaaaaally want a pair of big heeled sandals like these. I don't need more shoes... I have way too many!!!

Button Up Skirts
Although I spent all of my money on the adorable denim button-up skirt that Alexa Chung designed for her AC x AG line, I'm still pining after similar styles - like button ups in suede and corduroy. I love the light brown and tan colors; they make me think of the 70s. In reality, I'm loving anything 70s right now. As of today, we're learning about the 60s/70s in my AP United States History class, so that may be influencing me? 

Celine Sunglasses
I remember taking a trip to Paris with my mother a few years ago, and seeing these adorable sunglasses at the Celine store in the city. I wanted them then, and I still want them now. Hmm... $300, anyone?

Leather Mini Skirts
Cool, detailed leather mini skirts seem so versatile and stylish. Also, they're a classic piece, and definitely worth investing in. I've been looking for the perfect one for ages.

What is everyone lusting after for this upcoming season?!
