Lusting After #51

I've been away from my beloved British high street for 2 weeks now so as you can imagine there are lots of things I want! Since Autumn/ Winter is only just round the corner (sorry for the reminder!), I need to stock up on some warm clothes. First up is this Topshop camel cropped jumper which is just a really simple style that will go with so many things. I've always been a big fan of neutral shades so this will slot into my wardrobe quite nicely. I wear my Topshop Mom jeans in the bleach blue shade all the time so this lighter blue shade have also caught my eye. They're actually really flattering on most figures and I wear mine all the time with crop tops, jumpers, vests or even bodies. Speaking of bodies...I also really like this Topshop sweetheart orange body and wish I'd bought it before my holiday! I'm off to Mallorca in a few weeks time so this needs to be in my suitcase when I go!

Out of the blue, River Island have actually become one of my favourite shops at the moment. I love so many things in there that I've featured a fair few items on here. Firstly we have this cropped tiger vest which really caught my eye. I think it would look great paired with the River Island mid-wash denim skirt and some chunky boots. I don't actually own a denim skirt so this would be a first for me! I also love this lime marl jumper dress which would be so easy to wear during the day with a statement necklace and some boots. I'm not sure what the sizing will be like for this so I'm reluctant to purchase it online without trying it on. Lastly from River Island, I need these hologram gold sandals and I'm actually purchasing them as we speak! I love the gladiator sandal style of the shoe and the hologram gold makes them stand out so well. I can't wait to wear these with some pastel skinny jeans when I get home!

I've been wearing sandals and flats for the past 2 weeks so I can't wait to wear some Winter boots soon. I really like these Asos gold plated ankle boots and for £45 they're quite a bargain. I have some similar studded Zara boots but these are much nicer and more pointed. They would go perfectly with this Zara white clutch bag which I've seen in Marbella and I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy it! The bag is actually quite long so I wasn't sure it would be easy to carry on an evening but it does come with a shoulder strap. I'm also lusting after the Sophie Hulme cross body bag in camel, the style and shape is so simple and would make a great every day bag. 

I have enough statement necklaces to last me a life time but I've still got my eye on this Topshop chunky black chain one. It's not as colourful or jazzy as most of my necklaces so it would make a great addition to my upcoming Autumn/ Winter wardrobe. I'm also after a new watch as I'm bored of mine and I recently found this Michael Kors tortoise face watch. I find tortoise shell and gold to be a great combination and it would definitely be nice change from my usual rose gold. Now I just need to find a spare £180 and it's mine!
