What’s on my shopping wish list

12th July, 2019

I’ve been shopping around for investment pieces of late so this month’s round up features a few designer buys that I’ve had my eye on. Bags and shoes are usually what I splurge on because of how versatile they are so I’ve been scouring my fave brands such as Chanel and Louis Vuitton for new designs. That said, the rest of my list involves some practical wardrobe updates that I know I’ll wear to death. It’s all about a high-low mix when it comes to my wardrobe.

O!mega Shadow Gel Powder Eyeshadow, Marc Jacobs Beauty

My makeup artist Michael Brown used a selection of products from the Marc Jacobs Beauty range on me for Fashion Week and ever since them I’ve been obsessed. This particular shade has such a rich colour and achieves a natural flushed effect.

Boyfriend V Neck, Skin and Threads

Skin and Threads have always been a fave brand for jumpers and I come back to them every winter. Oversized knits are great as they’re comfy and cosy. I like the baggy look of this and the gorgeous pink shade.

Cannes, Louis Vuitton

Structured, dainty bags are hugely popular right now and I like the compact size of this and its elegant feel.

Sling Back in Neutral and Black, Chanel

I can’t go past the classic look of these Chanel pumps. The iconic beige/black combination is a versatile colour pairing and the comfy heel make them great for wearing during busy work days.

Chanel’s Gabrielle Backpack, Chanel

I saw the bubblegum pink shade of this bag and immediately fell in love. Even in such a striking colour I don’t think you can ever really go wrong with a Chanel bag — it’ll hold up well and have longevity, not to mention the bucket style is a classic.

U Crew Neck short Sleeve T-Shirt, Uniqlo

These white t-shirts are a new fave of mine. I’ve actually been wanting to stock up on them because they’re just the right shape, they’re a really thick fabric and they don’t look worn just after a few washes.

Mom Jean, Levi’s

Can’t get enough of “mom” jeans. I like the slightly relaxed fit and they work really well with a tee, sneakers and a cute coat.

Black Belt Bag, TDE

If you’re like me and are a fan of going handsfree when it comes to your bags then this is a great, affordable option by The Daily Edited. And I’m always on board with any kind of monogramming.

Bare Leather Sandals, The Row

The only difficult thing when it comes to these shoes is deciding which colour to get. I like the rust tone of this pair and its minimalist style makes it extremely versatile.

What’s on my shopping wish list this month

14th June, 2019

I am heading off to Daydream Island for a family holiday which has got me in a serious resort wear vibe. And whilst it’s been fun playing with lots of layering now that winter’s here, I’ve always got a soft spot for easy breezy summer dressing. There’s just something about effortless, laidback looks that’s always so great to shop for. So here’s a peek at what I’ve been wanting to snap up for my trip—and for a head start on my summer wardrobe.

Bare Leather Sandals, The Row

These shoes are everywhere at the moment and I’ve been stuck for which colour to get. I’m leaning towards this beautiful pink shade to add a hint of playfulness to a look. And let’s face it, a comfy heel is always a good idea.

Solitaire Belted Ribbed Seersucker Swimsuit, Hunza G

I am really loving one piece swimsuits and this brand does some gorgeous seersucker styles which look classic and modern. Also show me swimwear with a cute belt and I’m there.

Penny Earrings, Amber Sceats

These shell earrings are perfect for my holiday. I think they’re quite fun and are just the thing to dress up a day look or add an element of interest for an after dark outfit.

Outta Love Sunglasses, Le Specs

You know I’ve got a weak spot for great sunglasses and this oval pair by Le Specs are an affordable way to accessorise a summery look.

Paula’s Ibiza Medium Leather-Trimmed Woven Raffia Tote, Loewe

Straw bags are very much having a moment and are made for beach holidays. Love the size and the interesting asymmetrical handle of this particular piece.

Mika off-the-shoulder Tencel and Linen-Blend Midi Dress, Mara Hoffman

Off the shoulder styles are super flattering so I’m always drawn to them whenever I’m trying to pull together a holiday wardrobe. Love the cut and voluminous sleeves on this particular dress. I can see myself wearing this from the beach to the bar.

After Fil Coupe Silk-Blend Georgette Pareo, Eres

Wrap skirts are perfect for vacation wear and I love how sophisticated this particular piece is. The elegant draping and moss green shade work beautifully together and would be a dream with a cami or even a relaxed tee.

Honour Belted Linen Wide-Leg Pants, Zimmermann

Wide leg pants are just the right vibe for resort wear. I love anything in a crisp white when it comes to great beach attire and linen is made for days spent enjoying the sun.

Verity Cropped Grosgrain-trimmed Floral Print Linen Top, Zimmermann

The sleeves, the print, the cut—I love it all! This is great piece that can be worn with the simplest of items whether its denim or a neutral pant and work together to create a look that has impact.

What’s on my shopping wish list this month

1st March, 2019

It’s time to officially farewell summer and say hello to autumn but that doesn’t mean I’m not trying to squeeze in a few last summery purchases. That said it’s the also the perfect time to start prepping my new season wardrobe. I’m embracing warm, earthy tones of tan and beige along with vibrant shades of burgundy and red. If you’re on the hunt for some great new pieces, check out my wish list for a little inspo…

Chloe Faye medium leather and suede shoulder bag

I love the warm tones of this bag plus it’s just the right size for carrying all my daily essentials.

1064 Studio gold plated cuff

Fun costume jewellery that has a bit of extra personality is one thing that’s made elevating my looks that much easier.

Victoria Beckham waffle knit midi dress

I love dresses with a simple silhouette that can be dressed up or down. This dress will work now with heels but I can also transition it to autumn/winter with a jacket and boots.

TDE taupe Samsung Note 8 case

I like changing up phone cases and this one is a beautifully sleek design.

Sandro Lila belt

Statement belts are always a great way to elevate a look especially in such a bold shade.

Nina Armando Taylor shoe

This is a great shoe that will help lift an outfit by adding a bright pop of colour.

Paloma Barcelo Auriane wedges

I always gravitate towards wedges as they’re the ideal shoe for wearing to events like the polo or the races where I don’t want to be sinking in grass with stilettos!

Maggie Marilyn Far Far Away sweater

The simple design and colour palette of this sweater makes it the ideal versatile piece for the cooler months.

Eugenia Kim Mallory silk hair tie

Scrunchies are having a moment and this is a fun option that’s both decorative and functional.

Rebecca Vallance Harlow mini dress

How cute is this dress? Love the shape and the colour and I can see myself getting plenty of wear out of this.

Rejina Pyo wide leg chambray pants

This chic pair of wide leg pants has an effortless vibe that I really like.

Eres metallic trimmed swimsuit

A totally glam swimsuit option I know, but how gorgeous is the gold detail?

Johanna Ortiz gold toned earrings

I can see myself wearing this to multiple occasions. It’s just the right design to be versatile but interesting enough to stand out.

Ray Ban Clubmaster tortoiseshell sunglasses

A classic shape and brand, these glasses are perfect for weekends spent relaxing and enjoying the sun.

Dolce & Gabbana The Only One perfume

I’ve been on the hunt for a new scent and this one is so dreamy.

What’s on my shopping wish list

11th January, 2019

It’s always refreshing to compile my wish list at the start of each year. I’ve done my big wardrobe purge, have scoped out all my fave stores having just emerged from Christmas shopping and checking out the sales and I’m in the right mood for a big style update. So what’s caught my eye this month?

Mimco Acid Dream drop earrings

I’m trying to dabble with a few more bold accessories this year, most especially statement earrings. I love this style for the colours and sleek shape.

Rebecca Minkoff Bree Circle bag

A classic neutral bag that’s made a little more interesting by its circle shape. This is a good one for weekends when I just need to go hands-free as I am busy running errands.

Isabel Marant gold-tone earrings

Another beauty that I’d really love to add to my collection. These have a great silhouette and hammered finish.

Helen Kaminski raffia visor

I’m so conscious of protecting myself in the sun these days that I’ve been drawn to shopping for an assortment of different hat styles. This is a great visor to have on hand when I’m just quickly popping out for coffee or picking up something from the shops.

Zimmermann printed linen shorts

Linen in summer is always a winner and these shorts with their printed finish and bold colour are just the thing to elevate my wardrobe.

Frame embellished mini denim skirt

I’m really gravitating towards denim skirts this season, especially when it features a little embellishment.

Ulla Johnson chambray wide-leg pants

I’ve always liked the look of wide leg pants especially, especially in such a beautiful lightweight chambray. These would be perfect for dressing up or down.

Adriana Degreas bikini

I don’t really do prints when it comes to swimwear and much prefer block colours so these get a definite thumbs up from me. The emerald green shade and the tortoiseshell ring detail make this a fun, yet elegant option for the beach.

Ginger & Smart anchor peplum top

With its simple silhouette, this top is ideal for refreshing my work wardrobe.

Camilla and Marc Bronte top

I don’t wear much brown but I have to say, this crop top with its crossover neckline and ruching is perfect for pairing with everything from shorts to skirts and pants.
