This time of year is when I particularly find myself spending more than I should. The Spring season is fast approaching which calls for a complete wardrobe re-vamp as well as having many birthday vouchers burning a hole in my pocket. Since returning from Marrakech, I've found myself lusting after Summer pieces, pastel and neon shades and eccentric jewellery.

I've never really shopped in Reiss as I've always considered it to be pricey and a slightly older style. However, after browsing their website I found this gorgeous boyfriend style jacket which looks uber comfortable and a salmon pink blouse that I liked the colour of. Similarly, I really adore this pastel and neon pink blouse by Ted Baker. The cute shape of the collar and short capped sleeves make it perfect for Spring. I'd consider pairing this with some leather skinnies to add contrast with a grungy vibe.

Some pieces I have featured will never make their way into my wardrobe unless I win the lottery or marry a very rich man. One of these being the Givenchy shopper which would make the perfect day bag if I had a spare £600 flying around. I love the simplicity of the style and the shape which is something Givenchy always nails so well. I'm also lusting after the Chloe bangle and YSL rings which are quite affordable but still a lot to dish out. The YSL ring would make a great statement piece whereas the bangle is more simple and chic.

Sophie Hulme accessories have become incredibly popular lately with her minimalistic but colour popping designs. I absolutely love the fuchsia shade of this envelope clutch against the gold plating. A neon orange version of this bag is also available which will be gorgeous for the holiday season too. I have drooled over these bags many a time whilst wandering around Selfridge's but they shall remain on the shelf for now!
