Lusting After #56

I'm back in my usual shopping mode after my dry spell and now there's a ridiculous amount of things I want at the moment! Lets start off with a few items from River Island... first up is this wet look lace crop top which has just come onto the website. I'm loving lace at the moment and the fact this has a wet look effect makes it even more appealing! This could be worn layered over a nude crop top with a pencil skirt for an evening look or layered over a casual dress. I'm also loving this River Island check mini skirt which is so Clueless! I've seen a similar style in Topshop but I much prefer the pastel shades within this one. River Island are also producing some really lovely mongolian fur items at the moment including this pastel pink mongolian fur collar. Although these items are slightly pricey, they're great for Winter and add that extra chic factor to an outfit.

I haven't bought much from Topshop lately, but I'm really liking this cute striped crop top with a high neck. I've been wearing lots of high neck items lately and this would be great paired with high-waisted jeans or a high-waisted leather skirt. Similarly, this Topshop floral crop top could be worn in the same way. I'm not a huge fan of florals but I love love love Winter florals. The dark tones and subtle prints are definitely more my style. I'm also dying to buy these Topshop fluffy nude heels but I can imagine totally wrecking them within 5 minutes of wearing them!

Next up, from Boohoo I really love these zip front leather trousers as I've been wearing lots of leather at the moment whilst braving the cold weather. I'm not sure what these would look like in person so I'm slightly wary about ordering them as sending them back is such a faff! I also love this H&M jumper for the colder weather at the moment, it looks so cosy and warm and would look great contrasted against my Topshop vinyl mini skirt or some leather trousers.

I've been looking for some new necklaces lately and this Asos vintage gold plated necklace has really caught my eye. I don't often wear long necklaces but I think they are much more suitable and subtle for during the day time. For the evening, I love this bright fuchsia pony skin clutch bag which is an exact dupe of the Zara one which is no longer available. This would really pop against any outfit and would be great for clashing against prints and creating texture. 

Lastly, I've always been a big fan of Kurt Geiger and these black cleated sole boots are no exception! They're incredibly pricey for what is quite a simple black boot but the quality of the designs are always so good. I'm also in love with this Kurt Geiger knitted scarf with a little fur pocket on the front. I don't actually own many Winter scarves so this could be a really good investment!
