My wishlist so far

Monday, 12 February 2018

I've been a bit quiet on my blog, mainly because I haven't been inspired to post anything (which seems to be the norm around this time of year). However, I thought I'd begin posting with a good ole' roundup of some things I've been liking and have already put on my wish list (so far):

Its still pretty cold here in the UK. In fact last week we had a particularly ferocious blast of arctic air (not that I'm complaining mind you, as it means I can get a bit more wear out of my extensive knitwear collection). To combine those winter and spring vibes, this Cos cashmere yellow sweater fits the bill perfectly. Its a true "egg-yolk" shade and works well with a pair of tailored trousers and loafers, or block heels.

Midi dresses are en vogue and this black and starry number from AndOtherStories is a good example. It's slightly fitted on the waist and is made from a drapey viscose material, which is perfect for now with ankle boots and an oversized cardi, or for spring with flat sandals. The possibilities are endless.

Ok, ok, what would a  wish list from me be without some TOAST: I have to admit I wasn't particularly inspired by their autumn/winter 17 collection, but I'm more optimistic for their new season offerings. This Iya top is a case in point. It did catch my eye on their website, but the print seemed quite intense. However, when I saw it in store and felt the gorgeous silk fabric I was definitely sold. Its quite a loose shape, but should look good with skinny jeans and boots.

My desire to spend an extortionate amount on a designer bag is unabated, but I just can't seem to decide which bag to go far. Nothing has really caught my eye, at least not for long enough for me to spend a months salary on. Loewe is a bag brand which is more discreet then usual suspects (Gucci, Prada, etc.). I've got two on my wish list at the moment, the Puzzle and the Hammock. Both seem spacious, practical and beautiful. Lets see which, if either, I go for. If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know :)

Nothing beats a cute stripey top to inject a little fun into an outfit, so this ASOS Monki purple and white long-sleeved tee is super cute. I've never seen this colour combo before and it makes a change from the usual black/navy/red versions around.

Lastly, a coat which will see you through to Spring: Of course, the UK is known for its temperamental weather and having a light, waterproof, parka/raincoat on standby is a must. I just spotted this khaki parka from ASOS yesterday and I can imagine it will be making its way into my wardrobe sooner (there's only so far I can take my wool coats into spring, without getting odd looks).

Do let me know what you've been loving lately, as I love the idea of depleting my bank balance even further..haha.

Happy Spring everyone!
