I'm finding that my style is changing again, summer is finally here and i'm lusting after clean shapes, bright colours and darker tones. In a desperate bid to embrace my age (Gone are my levi shorts, spiked shoes and Jack Daniels tee a la tumblr teen) i've experimenting with different shapes and colours lately. I've found that the midi skirt or midi dress is and will probably always be my BFF, and i've discovered that strappy sandals may look beautiful but are deathly painful to actually walk in.
So through my 'trying-to-be-a-lady' trial and fashion error's, i've compiled a mini wish list of the things I am almost having an asthma attack over (in the best of ways i assure you). I discovered Need Supply Co through Erin's blog and I am smitten! Why do all the best clothing sites have to be based in America? Darn shipping charges! This may sound odd, but i love the sites layout, how the products are photographed and just how clean and i guess effortless everything looks. The only downside? The prices. For my student budget, the sometimes $200+ prices give me heart palpitations.
Number two on my lust list is the H&M kimono everyone has been after, Jen put a little heads up on twitter regarding it finally being in store and for a mere £15 it's a steal! Granted, i think it's supposed to be worn on a picturesque grecian beach, I still want it as i think it will look fab with an all black or all white ensemble.
I'm in dire need of a new every day handbag. Something sturdy that i can fit my laptop and camera in, along with the other odd bits and bobs i usually carry around. My dear Primark handbag has recently passed (The handle gave way on a busy high street sob sob) and i've been looking for a better quality replacement and the ZARA one as pictured above has won my heart. I like it because it doesn't look too ZARA if you know what I mean. The design is perfectly classic, sleek and simple.
Lastly, the shoes that I would probably choose over Pizza. And that says a hell of a lot. Again, I need a good pair of black every day shoes that go with dresses and trousers and can be worn during summer through to winter without any hassle and these fit the bill.
Now for the most important question.... What is on your wish list?!
P.S. I'm starting a new illustrated project called the Investment Closet inspired by Rachel over at Notes From My Closet. I'll have more details in the future, but watch out for it!
