Summer wishlist

I thought I would show you a few of the things that have caught my eye lately, first up is fashion items, then it'll be jewellery and accessories then lastly it'll be beauty items.

Miss Selfridge lime green maxi dress


This dress stood out to me straight away when I was on the holiday shop part on Miss Selfridge. Its beautiful, it looks figure hugging in all the right places. The cut outs are amazing, and although it doesn't show on here there's a cut out on the back which I really love. The monochrome floral print is so beautiful as the lime is quite a bright colour then the plain print is just such a nice contrast and tones it down slightly.  I can just imagine wearing it along the beach with sandals or with heels and gold jewellery in the evening. This dress is definitely very versatile which I love when it comes to summer dresses when I don't feel like wearing a complete new outfit.

Summer top


This kimono is gorgeous. I love that its actually got the oriental print on it which helps remember the original culture when the kimono came from. The colour is beautiful, this matched with a black bikini during a day by the pool would be beautiful, or to wear it with a plain playsuit and heels to dress it up. I love kimonos purely because of how versatile they are, they are most defiantly a staple item to put in the suitcase for holiday.

Miss Selfridge top


I am loving these 90's inspired crop tops. The fact that its got a really high neck but a reasonably low back in comparison to the front I love because I don't really like have my chest, back and stomach out so these tops are perfect. I've seen a few places sell these lately but Miss Selfridge's seem to have the nicest summery colours. This neon orange is amazing, I could pair it with some high waisted denim shorts and wellies for a festival, or with a high waisted skort and heels. This top just has so much potential.

Now I know this is quite Miley Cyrus-esque.. but I love it. I would defiantly have to pair it with a high waisted midi skirt (Miss Selfridge actually have a matching high waisted skirt to match which I do love also) The opaque sections at the top and middle interest me so much and I don't really know why, but I love it. I'm not one for getting a lot of my body out however I think this top would look really nice with high waisted shorts and jelly shoes, I just have a perfect image of that outfit in my head.

River Island high waisted shorts


Denim shorts are a must for every girl, everyone must own at least one pair. I'm all about high waisted ones especially with all the crop tops floating around, it just makes for such an easy outfit, I love it. I think I prefer these sort of shorts where they have more fabric around the bum area, it certainly makes me feel more confident. The acid wash look is so in every summer which I love because I don't really like having shorts in just one plain colour, I think having the acid wash adds more dimension to the overall look. I've already paired these shorts with the crop tops above, but they go with everything. They're perfect to shove on at a festival, or on holiday for sightseeing or just walking around, or even for a party or night out with heels. They are just an item every girl needs in their wardrobe.

Top £16
Bottoms £12

This neon bikini screams to me. The colour itself is just summery and I love it, then the black piping around is so beautiful and adds shape to the bikini. Now I know the bottoms are slightly high waisted but they're still so beautiful. I've been looking at this bikini for so long now I may just have to invest., so perfect for lounging by the pool.

River Island block-heel shoes


I'm all for bright shoes, especially when they are as beautiful as these. I love that they aren't just a bright blue they have some pastel blue in there which I think makes them more wearable. These actually look so ridiculously comfy to walk around in because of the chunky heel and sole, there's nothing worse than having beautiful shoes that are so uncomfy that you can't actually wear them. I would definitely pair these shoes with some denim shorts and a white crop top or a jumpsuit. So beautiful.

River Island chunky high heel sandals


I need these shoes. I actually don't own any patterned shoes purely because I'm scared that I would never wear them, but these are so beautiful I could defiantly get away with wearing these. The floral print looks so retro, I love it. The colours are so summery and I've always thought orange goes well with blue and green. The size of those heels are amazing they look so chunky and comfy. They would go beautifully with a black jumpsuit and gold jewellery.

Boohoo chunky shoes


I'm very strangely attracted to these, I don't usually like sandals, I don't know whether its me not liking them because I don't like the design or because I just don't like getting my feet out on show? They look like they could give a few blisters the first few times wearing them but I could put up with that. These shoes are so versatile, I could wear them on the beach or at a party, I think its the small chunky heel that changes the look of them. They would go perfect with denim shorts and the orange crop top above.

Hope you all enjoyed a few of my favourites! Keep an eye out for the accessories and beauty favourites!

Accessories wishlist

Accessories wishlist

Read post

This is my accessories wish list (all things are linked through polyvore) and as you may or not be able to tell they are mainly expensive items, I would love even one of these items but it isn't likely!

Chanel handbag


This handbag just makes me feel so happy and warm inside! The fact that its just the classic flap bag but it bright red! I would so use this on a daily basis, it would look awesome with denim jeans, boots, a baggy tee and leather jacket.

What Goes Around Comes Around leather purse


This is literally my dream bag, I think the day I buy one of these will be the day I realise I've achieve something massive. Its just so freaking beautiful! Chanel can do no wrong when it comes to handbags in my eyes. This would be my pride and joy if I ever got one. I would make it work with every outfit and probably would sleep with it by my side.. that's really sad but my guilty pleasures are bags of any sort and this one is just so beautiful.

Leather purse


I love how adorable this little satchel is, its perfect for spring/summer with it being in such a cute baby pink. I love satchels mainly because they look so old school. This would be one for small things, I doubt I could use it everyday.

CHARLES KEITH green handbag


I can't even comprehend how much I want this little bag, it is so adorable in just the size and colour. A perfect spring/summer colour, plus mint green is one of my favourite colours. Then the size is just adorable. 

Infinity jewelry


I love all things with the infinity symbol on it, I don't really know why but the symbol itself just makes me feel happy. This small gold ring adorable, I can imagine it on my little finger now.

ERICKSON BEAMON blue earrings


These earrings just scream festival season too me. The range of colours amazes me, so many bright but a few neutral colours to tone it down. The fact that its built up with small little beads amazes me, I love small intricate pieces of jewellery, they facinate me. I would love to know if these are hand crafted or not.

Michael kors bracelet


Who doesn't want a Michael Kors watch? I know I sure do. I picked this one out because of the pop of colour on the clock. Most people just get the solid gold coloured watch but this one is so unique, I've never seen anyone wear it before. I love that a simple watch can recreate your entire look, purely because of that small amount of colour.

Post earrings


These are the best looking earrings ever. Who doesn't want a pineapple in their ear? They are so summery and the fruit itself actually tastes amazing. I've gotta give it to pineapples, they're one of the best looking fruits out there (does that make me weird for labelling a fruit good looking?) 

Statement necklace


I'm all about statement necklaces with a plain shirt or dress, I think it changes a look totally. This one with the coral flowers reminds me of summer when you see all the flowers and when coral pink becomes an acceptable colour to wear again. I want it.

Daisy Jewellery stud earrings


Daisies are just a summer flower, every girl must of made a daisy chain at least once in their life right? These earrings just bring back childhood memories and they won't dry up and die, they'll stay nice and pretty in your ear, so cute.

Boohoo friendship bracelet


These are just festival bracelets. I love stacking fabric bracelets up in summer and rarely taking them off. I have a ridiculous amount of these type of bracelets as it is and these tempt me more. I'm not an overly proper bracelet sort of girl, I prefer these, mainly because they're just so easy to wear and just cute. 

Teal earrings


Like I said with the mint green bag I love this colour, they have a slight teal look about them but they're still adorable, these would look amazing with a plain outfit and just jewellery in tis colour to give it an edge.

Statement necklace


Statement necklace, need I say more? This is a summer colour, I can imagine it on a white shirt now its just beautiful.

Frette hat


I am unfortunately yet to own a fedora, I think its because I see myself as a hat person, I don't really know why but hats and me don't usually go, however I've seen these on a lot of people and I very much want to give it a go, I'm going to keep my eyes peeled and see if I can pick one up.

CHARLES & KEITH cat eye glasses


I don't know why but I've never tried cat eyed sunglasses? I seem to always reach for the traditional rayban style and stick with them because they go with my face shape. But I do really like cat eyed sunglasses at the moment, they're so chic and girly, I honestly think I may have to pick a pair up.

Miss Selfridge flower headband


Every girl needs to own a flower headband. I love them. I got a real daisy one made when I was on holiday a few years ago and it was beautiful. They look amazing at festivals when your hair is looking a bit worse for wear or when its beautifully clean and you just want something different. I'm all about flower headbands, give me one for every day of the year.

Hope you enjoyed this one.

Here are my top 4 favourites this week.

First off is June's vogue, (which this month is half price so only £2) I try my hardest to get vogue every month but I was out today and luckily managed to remember to pick it up. I love using the ads for inspiration whether it be when designing, choosing an outfit or experimenting with hair and makeup. I also love the small little samples you get, this month we got Chanel Les Beiges- all in one healthy glow fluid with and SPF of 15. I'm excited to try this, I'll most likely do a review once I've tried it.

Next up are peanut m&m's. I've rediscovered these after only eating the biscuit ones for years but for some reason picked these up and decided that I am in LOVE

I live for summer when Costa bring in their Creamy Coolers. I discovered these last year and have just been waiting since! In the photo at the top I have the vanilla creamy cooler and in this one here I have the strawberries and cream creamy cooler. They both taste amazing and are just essentially ice blended with cream and flavourings.

Last but not least is the Rimmel London 086 Sugar Plum lipstick. I've been wearing this everyday this week and just love it. I have wrote about it in my spring/summer lipsticks so I won't go into too much detail. I just love how well this lipstick goes with my skintone and how long it lasts.
