It has been surprisingly warm and sunny the last few days which has made me want to go shopping for summer clothes. Normally my summer clothes are more or less the same as my winter clothes, but with less layers of tights and cardigans. This year, however, I’m in the mood for a whole new wardrobe filled with floaty dresses and ice-cream coloured accessories. I’m determined to break my habit of wearing black all the time!
I’m a little bit in love with the mint bowling bag from Topshop, it looks like such a pretty colour and the perfect size/shape for an every day bag. I do actually need a new bag, so this is probably the thing from this wishlist which I’m most likely to buy soon. I also think it would be best to start introducing pastels to my wardrobe in the form of accessories first, I’m not ready to abandon my black dresses and opaque tights just yet!
The white shirt from Miss Selfridge doesn’t look particularly exciting, but I don’t have a slouchy white shirt in my wardrobe and I think it would be perfect for summer to wear with some bright jeans or shorts. I really like the tie front detail as well, a bit of a hint of 50s style without looking like you’re off to a fancy dress party! The shirt would look great with long layered necklaces, like this silver triange one from Bad Passion.
I really like the aqua wrap dress from LOVE but I’m disappointed to see the biggest size they do is a 10/12. Seriously?! Especially as they’re becoming a bit more of a ‘mainstream’ brand who are stocked in Topshop, I’m surprised they don’t have any bigger sizes. (And I wouldn’t exactly say 14/16 is ‘big’, anyway!) Very annoying.
What have you got your eye on at the moment? Are you a fan of the pastel trend?
