I really enjoyed putting together my August wishlist, so I’ve decided to make this more of a weekly thing – the hardest bit will be not throwing my credit card after everything on the lists! Got to admit I already splurged on the Essie polish on my last wishlist, I’ll show you it sometime soon!
This week I’ve gone for things I think would work well together – I’d totally wear these items on a date night with the boyfriend or for drinks with the girls.
The Whistles clutch has been on my dream wishlist for what seems like ever. I love the simple style of it, it’s subtle and classy. The only thing better than a LBD is a LBB – little black bag! And the slim profile of it means thinking about what you’re throwing in there; this is a phone/cards/keys/lipgloss only kind of bag!
I saw these ASOS shoes in the sale a while back and ummed and aahed for so long that they sold out in my size (if you have baby size 4 feet, though, go go go!! There’s still a few pairs left!). There’s way too much foot on show for me to wear these to ‘work’, but if you work in any kind of office job these would be fab, and they can totally pull off an evening out too. I love the grey faux-suede – my shoe closet is never without a good grey, they’re the ultimate in pairing with anything.
And my first choice for that anything item would be Topshop’s amazing forest tube skirt. Look at the colours! Look at the print! Are you already typing in your delivery address on their website too? Or is that just me? I think the print makes it a bit more forgiving if you wouldn’t normally think of squeezing into a tube skirt, so this is a great first foray into that look. And they’re actually really comfy – I have Topshop’s liquorice allsort tube skirt and wore it to a dinner where I knew I was gonna be walking out with the food baby of the century. Elasticated waistband ftw.
Ok, away from food babies and on to something more mature – Clarins make up. Yet these eye pencils are almost anything but mature; check out that turquoise. Demure it is not. It’s the purple I’ve really got my eye on, though, as I think it goes with such a variety of eye colours, not to mention picking out the purpleish tree trunks on that skirt.
To finish off that outfit, a little drop of silver in the form of this Oliver Bonas heart ring. Just a bit more interesting than a plain band, that tiny heart adds a touch of cuteness. And it’s under £20 – what more could you want?
What did you think to today’s wishlist?
