I don't know about you lovely readers, but I am so ready for the sun to come back! As much as I love winter and the showers in spring, it is May tomorrow and I think it's about time we had some (lasting) sunshine!
Saying that, I do need to upgrade my summer wardrobe; I feel like I have nothing (although I probably, more than likely do!) Myself and Coddy are planning a trip to Meadowhall, in Sheffield, very soon and *hopefully*, by then, I will have some pennies left to spend... but just in case, I have found lovely pieces of clothing online which are on my wishlist.
|Raffi Asymmetric Jersey Skirt - |
I have been dying for an asymmetric skirt for months now; I think they are a bit more dressy than your average skirt but still casual enough to wear in the daytime with a nice, summery top. Coral is the perfect summer colour and is great for the neon trend... and £14.99 - bargain!
|Disco trousers - £70, American Apparel at ASOS|
These are slightly expensive, but for me, they are ideal for a last minute night out when you need a quick but chic outfit - and look incredibly sexy for date night! Until I can get these, I am upcycling my old wetlook leggings which do the trick just fine! They would also last through to the winter season too and can be dressed down with a chunky-knit jumper, now where to find that £70...
|Cream Boxy Slub knit top - £19.99, New Look|
I saw a similar top to this in the New Look store in Grimsby a while back; it is so easy to throw on with jeans on a lazy day or shorts for a cool, casual look. I think a simple, cream vest top would look just as nice as well as a splash of colour like in the image above.
|White & mint chiffon blouse - £25, Lavish Alice|
(Please excuse the arrows on the pic!)
Oh Lavish Alice, where have you been all my life? Their site is full of pretty, on trend pieces - and all at great prices too! This ticks all the boxes; contrasting pastel colours, light and floaty fabric, dress down or dress up! The collar is really feminine and is just that little bit different to the usual Peter Pan collars, which I really like.
|Tanya sleeveless floral crepe de chine playsuit - |
Adorable! I must admit, I haven't always been a fan of playsuits but there has been some lovely designs about! I loved this one which I bought a couple of months ago but unfortunately it didn't suit my body shape, but I saw this one on boohoo.com and now it has made my way onto my wishlist!
|Sequin Flash in coral leather women's smart sandals - |
Shoes, shoes, shoes - it has been a while! Clarks as a brand has really grown over recent years from nunty to real high-street contenders - and with the likes of Mary Portas on board, it is easy to see why! These are from Clarks' 'Urban Safari' range and look incredibly yet very fashionable! Again, these would be great for the neon trend and would brighten up any outfit. One of my favourite wedges I think!
|Lisabeth - £18, Linzi Shoes|
Linzi shoes may be my new favourite shoe brand! They have some fab shoe boots and I absolutely love these sandals - not too plain, not too fussy, full of colour but yet still wearable with practically anything! And for £18, it won't matter if you completely wear them out!
|Navy chiffon cross bust maxi dress - |
Not your average seasonal outfit but you may have the opportunity to go to an event, and my special occasion this summer will be one of my best friends' wedding! I love the colour navy and this asymmetrical dress is like a dream! I have some beautiful rose gold heeled sandals waiting in their box; I'm very excited!
