Greetings from Marbella! Although I wouldn't be too jealous...the weather isn't great here this morning. I managed to burn one side of my face yesterday so I'm out of the sun for today anyway! I planned to do an outfit post today but as you can imagine, half a red face is not a good look. Once the weather brightens up and my face calms down a bit I will bring one your way!

There are so many lovely pieces hitting the shops at the moment that I am very frequently posting these 'Lusting After' style posts. I love bright colours at the moment so this Topshop Knitted Vest and River Island Yellow Jumper are right up my street. I think the knitted vest may be the same as the pink and mint cropped ones I already own. I have been wearing these religiously with my Topshop Joni jeans so a new addition to my collection would be great. The River Island jumper is also available in white, cream, pastel blue and neon orange so I may purchase more than one. I also love this Topshop Daisy Cami for pairing with plain black jeans or denim shorts in the Summer. I can imagine this looking lovely with a large statement necklace and bright orange lip such as Mac 'Morange'.

I'm not really a 'shorts girl' but these River Island Monochrome city shorts are adorable and would go perfectly with a chunky knit and some platform heels. I'm not sure I have the legs to pull them off but I might try them on if I come across them in store. I saw this H&M Tiger Face dress in store the other week and I'm kicking myself for not buying it. I had already bought the tiger face jumper which I would post a link to but can't find it on the website. I've been buying a few midi skirts at the moment to wear on nights out with crop tops or cami vests. At the top of my list is this All Saints Leather skirt featuring a zip up the centre back. This skirt is wayyy out of my price range at a mighty £188 but I will keep my fingers crossed that it eventually hits the sales!

I nearly purchased this Zara Lunch Bag clutch over the weekend but again, I couldn't justify the price tag of £69.99. The colour and style of the bag is gorgeous and I can already imagine so many ways to style it up but I think it is over-priced. I picked it up expecting it to be around £29.99 which is what made me even more reluctant to purchase it. I also love this Topshop Unique Leather bag which is even more expensive at a whopping £275. I don't think I would ever purchase such a simplistic bag for that price when similar and cheaper alternatives could be found. 

Lastly, I've had my eye on these Zara Hologram Sandals for a while now but can't seem to find them in any store. I'm awkward in the feet department as I can be a size 5 or 6 so I like to try them on before I purchase. These would be so cute for the Summer months and could be worn with a casual pair of skinny jeans or jazz up a plain Summer dress. I also love this Ottoman Hands Pendant necklace which I cam across whilst doing my daily browse across Asos. I have seen this brand in Topshop Oxford Circus before but never really bothered to look around it. I think turquoise jewellery always looks great worn with Summer maxi dresses on holiday and really help to add colour to an outfit.
