Wish List Wednesday

What a conundrum.  I start to stock up on pieces for my autumn wardrobe and the weather finally heats up, relegating my long sleeved dresses, trousers and knitwear to the back of my wardrobe.

So this week's wishlist is all about transitional items, that can be taken from the humid 30 degree heat we're expecting today, to the cooler climes of September and October....

Sailor blouse, £39, Miss Selfridge

Perfect teamed with jeans or tucked into a skirt, this blouse is light enough for the summer months and the long sleeves and soft colour ensure it will 'work' well into the autumn.

Pink chunky knit sweater, £35.99, Zara
 Ok, so this may not be suitable for the 30 degree daytime heat, but I think it would be the perfect sweater to chuck over a delicate summer dress for those evenings spent lounging in a beer garden.  And as it gets cooler, how lovely would it look over a little skirt and black opaques, or teamed with jeans and pumps?  Definite must buy for me.

Burgundy jersey maxi skirt, £25, River Island
The maxi skirt is one of the best transitional pieces you can get.  Worn with sandals and a vest when it's scorching, or teamed with a leather jacket and ankle boots when it's cool.  And I love the colour (and price) of this River Island number.

Silk printed midi dress, £80, Warehouse
This midi dress is stunning, and would look just as good teamed with sandals as with ankle boots and a leather jacket. 

What's on your wishlist this week?


  1. Ooh my, that blouse is TO DIE FOR. But £39??!!

  2. It's crazy how much it is for just a blouse these days isn't it?!!

  3. I love that skirt, it's such a nice colour x


I love your comments x
