Wishlist for summer!

It would seem that any spare moments I have alone with my laptop, I can be found lusting after clothes, and my obsessions seem to change with the tide, not healthy for my bank balance. At the moment however, I have pretty clear ideas on my summer wardrobe, so I thought I’d do a quick wish list to share some of those ideas!

wish lists final blue

1. ZARA check dress // 2. Nasty Gal playsuit // 3. Lavish Alice scuba skirt // 4. Urban Outfitters glasses // 5. Motel paint strokes dress // 6. Asos chunky sandals // 7. Urban Outfitters jeans // 8. Monki t shirt // 9. Asos Leopard dress

 

wish lists greem 2 numbers

1. Motel Rocks playsuit // 2. ZARA dress // 3. Nelly leopard sandals (new favourite shop!) // 4. Jeepers Peepers sunglasses // 5. Urban Outfitters kimono // 6. Motel Rocks twosie // 7. Weekday Sweater top // 8. Asos midi dress // 9. Topshop playsuit 


All of my thoughts have been mostly centering on three themes:

Anything midi…

I’ve been dreaming of a full white midi skirt for some time. One that’s really poofy and 1950s ish… But nothing seems to quite fit my ideas! However, this ZARA faux leather one comes pretty close in shape, and the interesting material is just an added bonus. Skirts in scuba material, as above and here from boohoo, might also fit the bill, as well as this textured midi from Asos and pleated from Topshop. I just can’t decide. If only you could try on the interenet!

Monochrome

Black and white in check and spots, in swingy dresses and pretty playsuits.. with matching shoes too! Yes please. Oh and not forgetting bright white nails.

Prints!

Summer is tantalisingly close! And summer is always the time for prints. We steer away from the plain black and grey of Winter, and turn to prints that genuinely make us happy. But no classic disty florals, it’s time for the big bold prints! I’m loving anything bright and tropical and am currently obsessed with leopard print (genuinely had a dream about leopard printed sliders).  This recent Instagram basically sums up my feelings…

Hope you’re all doing well and good luck for those with exams round about now!

Speak soon..

High tops and sparkly

So firstly, I’d like to apologize to anyone expecting more outfit posts from me, the ridiculous amount of building work going on in and around my house at the mo (about 5 sweaty men per room and dust, just ev-er-y-where…) has made taking photos away from prying eyes pretty tricky. But I reckon I’ve found a good secret spot, so I promise I’ll get on track soon!

Apparently I am indeed obsessed with bright colours. Check out my shoes!!!

Perhaps a little too bright for my wee camera to handle….  y

m4The top is also pretty exciting, with sparkly appliques and a deep v back..

Top: Zara // Shorts: Levi’s via eBay // High tops: Adidas Sleek Series

The high tops are not hugely comfortable (Sleek series, i.e. made only for people with teeny delicate feet, not monsters like mine), but I love looking down at my feet and going “hey, look at you bright things!”

Anyway, hope you’re all enjoying the sunshine!

Scoop crop and midi..

I reckon I have a slightly mixed up style. There are times where, to my mother’s dismay, baggy jeans a pony tail and my scruffy converses (the ones that have grown with me through my phases aplenty, inc purple haired emo phase) are what I end up throwing on…

There are also times where I want to actually dress like a girl and wear floaty things with flowers in my hair, and others where I just can’t decide. I think is one of those times.

My Mum and I had fun taking these photos, she kept trying to get the garden in! Was definitely more impressed with her roses than my “interesting” outfit.

….and Rodney couldn’t help trying to jump in the photo.. (I feel this may be a regular feature)

I love adding flashes of bright to monochrome too!! Thanks, well-traveled parents for the electric blue necklace..

Crop Top: Urban Outfitters // Skirt: Primark // Trainers: Asos // Turquoise necklace: Gift from Mexico!

It is a little girly, with the low back and tight skirt, but I just couldn’t keep away from my neon trainers.. 🙂
