Apologies for the lack of posts recently, I've been at home for the past week and my daily routine of blogging always gets a bit messed up when I'm not working in London. I also didn't bring many clothes back with me, or at least items I would like to feature, so I haven't been in the mood for taking photographs anyway. Hopefully the outfit posts will be back up and running by tomorrow as I have a day out planned and want to wear something new :-)
I thought I'd kick-start the month with a wish list of all the lovely things I have my eye on for the upcoming Summer season. H&M has really impressed me lately and I've bought soo many items from there which I don't feel guilty about as the pricing is so reasonable. I especially love these mirror embellished shorts which look so relaxed and comfortable, easily worn during the day when it's acceptable weather for legs out! H&M have also just released a new Concious collection and I came across this black jumpsuit which is a really nice shape. I don't think I can pull off the jumpsuit look as I'm too short but it won't stop me wishing I could!
I bought a nude pair of jeans from Zara last week but ended up returning them as they weren't too flattering. However, I think this Blondie pair by Topshop look much better as they are a slightly darker shade and are part of the 'Leigh' collection so the fabric will be stretchy and feel more like a legging. I would absolutely pair them with these gorgeous glittery sole buckle shoes by Acne which are literally my dream come true in shoe-form! I love the glitter sole, it reminds me of my childhood addiction to jelly shoes, and the heel adds a grown-up edge.
I've been booking a few Summer holidays this week so this has got me in the beachwear shopping mood. I'm loving this black and lime green embellished kaftan which is part of the Pacha collection featured in River Island. This will look so dazzling in the sunshine and could be worn around the pool or over a plain Summer dress. I also love this Kenzo wrap-around bracelet, the lime snakeskin would go so well with the kaftan and it's the perfect Summer accessory.
I've been a busy little bee organising all of my items to list on eBay and I have finally got round to actually listing them, yay! I've included lots of lovely dresses which are in perfect condition as they have never been worn so be sure to take a look.
