Lusting After #55

I'm taking advantage of the one lazy Sunday I've had in weeks which only means one thing - internet shopping! I've been going through a bit of a spell lately where I haven't wanted to buy anything in the shops but now I'm on the opposite end of the scale and want everything! First up, this Topshop mesh panel knitted top which would be such a good staple item for the Winter paired with casual jeans or a smart midi skirt on the evenings. From Topshop, I also really love this sheepskin coat which is wayyy out my price range but a girl can dream! The matching sheepskin handbag is also to die for but I just can't justify the £280 price tag. Hopefully some cheaper alternatives will hit the high street soon. I'm after a new pair of evening heels and these Topshop Stockholm heels really remind me of the classic Miu Miu heels with the flared heel. They're pretty plain and simple but they would go with everything and the chunky heel makes them easy to walk in.

I hadn't actually ever bought anything off Boohoo until last week and now it's become one of my new favourites. I love this Boohoo tartan smock dress just for wearing during the daytime with some chunky boots and a fedora hat. I think this Boohoo statement necklace is also really lovely as I haven't been keen on any statement necklaces in such a long time. Another necklace I found is this River Island gold chain necklace which has taken my fancy, especially as it's only priced at £18. I don't usually like chunky chains as I find they can look quite cheap but the combination of pearl stones make it look more expensive. I've also been lusting after these amaaaazing River Island mongolian fur bag which I absolutely have to have! I loved the ombré version which I featured on my last 'Lusting After' post but this one is so much better. It's pretty loud and vibrant but it would definitely stand out on these dull Winter days.

River Island have also got some really lovely shoes in at the moment including these nude and black chunky heels which need to be my new going out shoes! I've completely wrecked my favourite Kurt Geiger's so these would be the perfect replacements. I also love these River Island zip patent boots for the day time with some ripped skinny jeans and an oversized jumper. They're also available in black but I think this taupe shade is more unique and stands out. I think this Asos leather backpack would also go so perfectly with these boots as I'm really into mixing leather and textures at the moment. I've never used a backpack as I'm more of a handbag girl but I think I could work this!

I'm after a new watch and as always, a new Michael Kors beauty has stolen my attention. I think this wrap around style is so simplistic and different from my usual rose gold sparkler. It would be perfect for the Winter season so this is definitely going at the top of my Christmas wish list. I'm also loving these Whistles Rivington clutch bags which I've been lusting after for a while now. This shade of peachy pink is my all time favourite colour and would go perfectly with so many evening outfits I have. Lastly, I'm after this H&M crop top just as a staple item for my wardrobe to be worn with a fitted midi skirt or some high-waisted trousers. I seem to be wearing the same outfits every time I go out at the moment so this might help me switch things up a little!
