So it’s only just February but already I’m wishing it was summer. I’m usually much more of a winter person, but the thought of some sunshine and not having to wear multiple pairs of socks is quite appealing right now. I really like the pastels trend that’s going around at the moment but it’s not very “me”, so here are a few of the things I’ve been eyeing up to purchase for wearing in the summer months.

I bought the black version of the Topshop v-neck dress the other day and I love it (even if it is rather boobtastic) but this coral one is a really pretty colour and much more sunshine-friendly than my usual uniform of head-to-toe black. I love the similar shade of the New Look bag too, and adding a bright belt to a summery dress like the H&M striped one is a great way to liven up an outfit a little bit.

I can’t believe I don’t actually own a pair of nice denim shorts, they’re such a wardrobe staple so I think I’ll have to invest in some soon. My favourite jeans are the Kristen high-waisted skinny jeans from Topshop, so I think the shorts version of them would be perfect. They would look great with loose t-shirts, some nice sandals and a pair of aviators for a no-effort summer outfit.

As for jewellery, I always think gold is nicest in the summer when you have a bit of a tan (LOL TAN…I know right, what’s that?!). I’ve had my eye on the Me & Zena rabbit ring for aaages, think it might be time to cave in and finally buy it!

What’s on your summer wishlist at the moment? What style of clothes do you go for in the warmer weather?

    Ah this is giving me spring fever! Lovely picks, I love the peachy colored dress. All these items are stunning. In the summer I usually wear sun dresses, they're so comfy and cute! And perfect because I live on the beach.
