Today's post is a little different, for me at least, as it focuses on fashion! Having had a snoop around the shops in town today with a friend, I was inspired to make a little high-street wishlist. Everything on my wishlist is under £25 (!)
Apologies for the poor quality images - I just had to make this into a collage quickly using iPiccy.com as I'm not really up to date with photo editing and blog layouts yet!
1. Turqoise Chiffon Split Maxi Dress, £19.99, New Look
I've been looking for a maxi dress for ages and I've finally found one that I really love. The colour of this dress is beautiful, so fresh and summery, and the chiffon fabric is light and cool. A must-have, teamed with a denim jacket, for a meal out or a few drinks in a beer garden.
2. Blue Polka Dot Midi Skirt, £24, Dorothy Perkins
Having tried this skirt on in-store today, I have fallen in love with this 50's style skirt! I'm not a big fan of polka dots but this skirt is such a lovely shape & style that the print doesn't faze me! This could be worn with a plain vest and some strappy sandals for a laid-back summer look.
3. Cutwork Detailed Sunglasses, £7, F+F @ Tesco
There's nothing worse than having to walk around squinting or constantly having the mirror down when you're in the car, so sunglasses are a must-have for this time of year! I don't really suit glasses but rounder shaped ones are better for me and I love these retro-style sunglasses from Tesco, of all places!
4. Limited Gold Geo Cut Out Chain Necklace, £14.99, New Look
I'm a huge fan of the art deco period and this gorgeous necklace definitely has an air of 1920s glamour to me! It's a statement necklace so I'd team it with a low-cut dress to draw attention upwards.
5. Graphica Shopper, £7, Dorothy Perkins
I love this quirky shopper bag; the print is gorgeous and it would go with most outfits. The price is also a major benefit as it's so cheap! Perfect for carrying around picnic food or towels for the beach, along with all your other summer-time essentials.
6. Black Tribal Print Stud Pocket Trousers, £16.99, New Look
I'm not really a trousers kind of girl, I tend to live in skirts, dresses and - occasionally - jeans, but I've been looking for some printed trousers for a while now and I stumbled across this striking pair on New Look's website. I love the print and think they'd look fab teamed with a white vest, sunglasses and some sandals, or dressed up with a black vest and heels for a night out!
7. Light Wash Denim Shirt, £20, Dorothy Perkins
I tried this casual shirt on in-store today and loved it immediately. It's a really flattering shape whether it's fastened or left open over a vest. I think it'd be great for days out in the sun as it's nice and casual, yet stylish, and very light-weight.
8. Gold Leaf Head Band, £2.99, New Look
Headbands are all the range right now and personally I'm loving the flowery garlands, however, I couldn't find one for a sensible price so I was over the moon when I spotted this dainty, golden head band online. It's beautiful with intricate details too, gorgeous.
9. Purple and Orange Double Dip Dye Vest, £9.99, New Look
I'm loving the dip-dye trend and the bright, summery colours in this vest make it absolute perfect! I think this colourful top would look brill with denim shorts or, on a colder day, a pair of jeans and a jacket! Ideal for any occasion.
What do you think of my wishlist?
Is there anything you own/want?
Lots of love,
