Summer Fashion Wishlist

I used to be allll about the winter months but now I get so excited over what little summer we do get - I've loved these freaky heatwaves we've had over the past few years! I think I've got my summer wardrobe pretty much sorted but that's not to say there's no room for a few more additions ;) 


Summer Wishlist

Dress - River Island | Sunglasses - H&M | Earrings - Isabel Marant | Sandals - Clarks | Jacket - Topshop

This kimono dress is one of those things that looks rank on the hanger but a whole lot chicer once it's actually on. You can probably guess that River Island isn't usually my kind of shop but one thing I think they're great for are cute little summer dresses in really nice, lightweight fabrics - I got one of my all time favourites from there a couple of years ago!

I used to never wear sunglasses but since being lucky enough to receive these two pairs I'm definitely a convert and wear them all the time (even indoors, ahem.) I would love to add something different to my collection, I think these cat eye H&M bargains would look super cool!

Now these earrings are staying firmly on the wishlist but aren't they beautiful? I tend to go for dainty gold jewellery and never really wear earrings but I'm 100% blaming Jeanne Damas for this craving! They just add instant Parisian chic to simple outfits, I'm hoping I'll find something nice on Etsy.

I've also really been into the idea of white sandals recently, I know Clarks is supposedly one of those 'granny' brands (my own nan loves them!) but my cousin revealed *in hushed tones* that her sandals are from the brand and I honestly would never have guessed! My feet are so used to trainers I sometimes struggle to wear other shoes but you don't get comfier than Clarks and I guess I need something smarter than my Birkie-alikes!

Finally a denim jacket, a summer staple but I've yet to find the perfect one! Such a mission. I do really like this Topshop one though, it has a good, oversized fit without looking too vintage/charity shop. 

What's on your summer wishlist? Are you more of a summer or winter person?

  14. I recognise that River Island dress, good choice ;) I also love those sunglasses and sandals! I absolutely love summer but when it comes to shopping I have to say I'm more of a winter person, I love to shop for coats and boots xx
