I’m a big fan of these transitional times of the year when season’s slowly start to change and you start to look at your wardrobe as though anything goes. Granted, we haven’t had much of a summer at all, but now that the sun is shining and it’s warm even when it rains, I’m really enjoying throwing cosy knits over skirts and bare legs!
I’ve not done a Wishlist Wednesday post for a few weeks now so my wants and needs have been piling high and I’ve seen some gorgeous pieces, the first of which follows on from what I was just saying about transitional dressing (not to be confused with transgender, pah).

Girls, I give you the ultimate in cosy knits: the soft, slouchy cable knit jumper in yummy powder puff pink from Monki. Throw it over denim cut offs and tees, ankle grazing trousers with a blouse peeping out at the collar/cuffs or floaty tea dresses, it’ll be a best friend to practically everything you own! Personally, I’d like to pair it with a tailored skirt a lot like this minty boucle one from Topshop, bare legs, lacey socks and a pair of tan ankle boots. A perfect weekend outfit, come rain or shine!

I’ve also been verging on the edge of disco pant temptation the past few weeks, though I really don’t want to pay £70 for a pair from Urban Outfitters as I think it’s a trend that’ll probably die a lot sooner than I get my money’s worth – So I was a little excited to see River Island had a copycat style which comes in lots of bright colours such as this electric blue pair for £30, a real alternative to the regularly worn skinny jeans in my wardrobe and effortlessly cool teamed with a bold pattern or print like the shell top blouse with hearts from Topshop.

Now, the thing I’m most excited to have seen whilst obsessively surfing the net this week is the revamped version of the plaited shopper from Zara. Covered in studs and looking ever so stunning in black, I’m convinced the fact that the original was sold out in most stores for months was for one reason only: Clearly I was destined to have this one instead! It’s a little expensive at £129, and I don’t think I’m ready to stop using my Mulberry just yet but I really don’t want to miss out again so I’ve decided, it will just have to be.

Heart Print Shell Top @ Topshop £34
Plaitted Shopper w/Studs @ Zara £129
Bee Pendant Necklace @ Hobbs £29
High Shine Tube Pants @ River Island £30
Oversized Jumper @ Monki 40EUR
Tailored Boucle Skirt @ Topshop £38

P.S. This little bee pendant necklace is my fave accessory of the week, I saw a girl on holiday wearing a similar one and have managed to stalk it down to Hobbs for £29, not bad for the cute vintage feel and quirky design!xo
