Visualising all of the wonderfully attractive summer dresses and basket bags there are to buy at the moment and realising that the state of my bank account simply does not allow for me to have them at the moment has made me sad. Hence, I have decided that the most productive way to amuse my extremely dangerous online window-shopping habit would be to turn it into a blog post. Hopefully one of you reading this is in a less financially tragic situation than me and can actually afford to enjoy these lovely things? If not, I can only apologise for bringing you to my level of sadness. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy looking at all of the things I’ve been lusting over in the last month.
Dress – £49.00
Top – £55.00
Blouse – £36.00
I’ve been really obsessed with everything that Topshop have been bringing to the table recently, including this fab stripey dress, how cool is it?! With its long sleeves and practical length is perfect for unpredictable summer weather, and is so smart yet very cool. I’d love to pair this dress with a pair of clean white trainers and a basket bag – perfect summer dressing. The top is by a brand called Lace & Beads, I’ve been really into these glam, embellished tops recently, especially in this champagne colour, it makes everything feel so much more luxe. As for the leopard print blouse, leopard print is about to be huuuge not just for this summer but right into winter as well. I love how loose and flowy this blouse is, the ruffles are a very cute feature too, this will be such an easy piece to wear with jeans and dress up or down!
Shoes – £49.99
Jacket – £49.99
Jumpsuit – £49.99
To say that I’m a little bit obsessed with constantly scrolling down Zara’s website would be a total under-exaggeration, they just always have what I want. Speaking of, these kitten heels are just everything. I’ve been looking for a pair of kitten heels for the longest time but have found all of the ones I’ve seen a little bit too flashy, these ones are so simple and elegant, and to top it all off they’re pink! They’d look so perfect with a pair of straight leg jeans and a simple white tee. Since I’m loving the ‘more is less’ kind of vibe recently, this jacket is next on my wish list. It’s the kind of jacket that is so toned down, yet the beige colour is enough to make it very chic. This jumpsuit is also something that I love, the pyjama trend is back in full force but this time in the form of a jumpsuit! It’s so chic and looks so comfortable too!
I know there’s a lot of white here but please bare with! This off shoulder dress would look so gorgeous with a tan (mine will be fake as sister will not be jetting off to anywhere hot once again this summer) and just screams summer party to me, now I suppose all I need is an invite to one? I love this white T-shirt with frilled crochet sleeves too, perfect with a pair of straight leg jeans and espadrille wedges. Lastly, this little set is so cute. If you are going on holiday, unlike me, it would be the perfect casual outfit for dinner and a moonlit walk on the beach. Sigh.
Blouse – £34.99
This blouse needed it’s own space! Is it not just the prettiest thing you’ve ever seen?! I have admired these jacquard-weave styles for so long, I’m always borrowing a similar red blouse that my mum has! I love the subtlety of this style, so nice with a pared-down jean and kitten heels.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what I’ve been lusting over in the past month and maybe it even gave you some shopping inspiration! I’m sure I’ll have more to show you next month so keep your eyes peeled for more!
