WISHLIST // "give me a break"

Sunday, 2 August 2015

(Clockwise to from left hand corner to centre)

Scallop triangle bikini set // £32 // Topshop
The last time I bought myself new swimwear and went on a holiday abroad was 5 years ago! For this reason I feel I am due both a break (ideally one where I can leave this country) as well as a gorgeous new bikini especially for the occasion. This one is super pretty with its scallop detail and petite stripe pattern.

Lace Bardot top // £28 // Topshop
I'm a big fan of ultra-feminine Bardot style necklines, so luckily for me they're bang on trend at the minute. I really love the shade of blue and also the lace fabric used in this top. I'm sure it's very flattering on too. I can imagine myself wearing this in the sunshine with denim shorts, a pair of sandals and a big floppy hat.

Le Pliage backpack in poppy // £61 // Longchamp
Longchamp bags have served me well over the past few years. So much so that I once had it pointed out to me during a date that I, yet again, had my trusty Longchamp tote in tow (Major props to this boy for knowing the brand of my handbag). I'd really like to get my hands on one of the cute backpack style Longchamps some day, and I'm particularly drawn to the vibrant colour of this one. A practical bag, ideal for carrying the everyday holiday essentials.

Braided sky high sandal in antique gold // £165 // Swedish Hasbeens
Swedish Hasbeens are a shoe I find myself forever lusting over. I once bought a pair but unfortunately had to return them since I couldn't afford to spend that amount of money on a pair of shoes - Especially not when I was in the middle of sourcing fabrics for my graduate collection! I opted for the Topshop equivalent instead, but since I've worn those so much, I think I could justify forking out for the real deal some day. I simply love this braided style in gorgeous gold, and they'd make a perfect day-to-night shoe.

CITIx60 Amsterdam city guide // £8.99 // Viction:ary
Why Amsterdam? Because it's somewhere I've always wanted to visit, yet I keep missing out on the chance. I'd actually been hoping to go there this Summer, but sometimes life has it's cruel ways of ruining plans and breaking hearts. Thankfully I have genuinely supportive friends that understand how much my mind would benefit from some time away, and are up for doing this with me some other time instead. When I finally make it to Amsterdam, I'll have to bring this awesome little city guide, compiled by 60 local creatives.
