Wish List Wednesday

I'm starting to have to think hard and fast about my wishlists as my birthday is only a couple of weeks away (1st August people, mark it in your calendars 'kay?) and I am getting those inevitable groans of "what do you actually want then?".

Frustratingly, my birthday always comes at an awkward time, with the dregs of the sale still floating around the high street and only the first few items of the new season starting to as much as I would love  new clothes, I have to work hard to find what I think will become my autumn staples.

But they are starting to show...and these are some of the things that have been catching my eye so far...

Blue boxy jacket, £55, Warehouse
Ultramarine is a huge colour for the new season and this jacket is not only the perfect hue, but is also a great way to incorporate the masculine tailoring that dominated many a catwalk. 

Black lace dress, £87, French Connection
Black lace is an autumn/winter classic and this dress is a lovely way to get it into your wardrobe - it also comes in a soft pale pink and navy - and is a great update of the Erdem inspired red lace numbers that have been everywhere this summer.
Embroidered leather clutch, £25, Topshop
 This clutch is the perfect nod to the arts and crafts trend I picked up on in my A/W Round Up back in March and also works perfectly for summer (yes that abstract concept of sunshine and warm weather) - and for 25 quid? A positive bargain.

Leopard print leather boots, £35, Topshop

Chelsea Boots.  Leopard Print.  Ponyskin.  I'm there.

Have you picked up anything for your new season wardrobe yet? Spotted any must haves?


  1. Nice blog you have here. Do visit my new lil blog
