My shopping wish list this month is a little bit of everything—a mixture of wardrobe staples, interesting accessories and fun pieces in bold colours. I think the combination of styling race day looks and building up my spring/summer wardrobe, along with considering a few new additions for the festive season has taken me in all different directions and I’ve discovered a few beauties along the way.
Double-Breasted Satin-Trimmed Wool-Blend Twill Blazer, Givenchy
I have a soft spot for black blazers and as such I’m always looking out for one to add to my collection. I love this Givenchy blazer for the double breasted cut, the satin lapel and the flattering nipped in waist. A definite winner.
Hexagon-Frame Acetate Sunglasses, Loewe
Sunglasses in interesting, not so common shapes always catch my eye. I love this for the hexagon shape — classic but edgy.
Striped Ribbed-Knit Midi Dress, Kenzo
I can’t look past the fun colours of this knitted dress. Such a great option for spring and perfect to wear with sneakers for casual days but it can easily be dressed up with flats or ankle boots when I want to look a little more dressed up.
Iside Micro Textured-Leather Tote, Valextra
White accessories are perfect as they’re so versatile and can work back with multiple pieces. I love the old school, elegant feel of this style.
Rexy Ruffled Lamé Mini Dress, Maje
This mini dress is a touch disco and a whole lot of fun and I can see us attending many an event together. Such a gorgeous colour too.
Alloy Cropped Ribbed Stretch-Knit Top, The Range
Cropped tops might seem a bit scary to wear on their own but I think they work beautifully with a high waisted pant. You still get all the coverage and the silhouette looks fresh and modern.
Hexagon-frame acetate sunglasses, Loewe
Fashion rule to live by: when you really love something considering getting it in all colours. These sunnies in brown is also amazing.
Crystal-embellished Satin Pumps, Miu Miu
These pumps are a little extra and I love them for it. The crystal embellishments and the pink satin work together to create a little shoe magic.
Cropped Canvas-Trimmed Cotton-Jersey Bustier Top, Dion Lee
A sleek top that certainly makes a statement. This will be a great little addition to my wardrobe as we start to head into party season.
Bernadette Cady and Embroidered Tulle Jumpsuit, Saloni
I’m a huge fan of jumpsuits and this is one has a classic silhouette that is elevated by elegant finishes, particularly the embroidered tulle sleeves.
Furoshiki Mini Leather Tote, The Sant
We tend to have bags that fall into certain families, whether it’s a tote, a clutch or crossbody bag which is why I love this style—it’s so different to the styles we often see. The handles, the structure, the beautiful silhouette…it’s such an interesting piece.
Belissa 100 Feather-Trimmed Suede Sandals, Jimmy Choo
Elegant heels are a must for the festive season and this style, with its feathered trim is all kinds of gorgeous.
Arc Two-Tone Lizard-Effect Leather Tote, Rejina PYO
I’m all for a soft, roomy tote of the buttery leather variety but I can’t go past the sleek silhouette of this particular Rejina Pyo number. It’s just so polished.
Square-Frame Marbled Acetate Sunglasses, Loewe
There’s scope for summer sunglasses to be a little more bold, and a little more fun, and this marbled pair will make the ideal finishing touch to many a warm weather look.
Frayed Linen Hairclip, Lelet, NY
Relaxed linen is made for this time of year and as a hair accessory, it makes for a sweet touch to any ‘do.
Faux Leather Midi Skirt, Stella Mccartney
I often wear leather pieces in black but I’m definitely all for dabbling in a little colour when a vibrant yellow leather skirt like this is involved. It’s the very definition of sunshine!
