I've been cheering myself up, through the gloomier moments of February, with a little look at all the new season loveliness drifting into my favourite shops. I'll probably not be buying any of this any time soon - there are holidays and trips away to be saved for, kiddos that need new shoes (why, oh why do they all grow at once??!) and a dodgy warning light that keeps flashing on in our car.
Is it really girly of me to calculate how much damage I could do in Topshop with those mechanics fees?
I weep a little every time another dashboard light goes on, I really do!
Anyway, it's always handy to have a wishlist, isn't it? My Christmas one was very successful. Mr M loves a bit of 'guided' shopping, and I got exactly what I wanted without buying it myself.
Everyone's a winner! :)
I do realise, in the grand scheme of things, that this is a bit of a frivolous post, but I think we are allowed it, just for today. It's been a long Winter.
High fives on making it through that one!
This Spring I wish for...
one & Other Stories Flower Lace Dress
Floaty, white, midi-length and lace. This is my perfect dress! How pretty would it be with tan sandals and braided hair? I've always been a bit of a boho girl at heart!
two Lotta Peeptoe Clogs
I have these already in the natural shade, but I love the idea of a bright colour update and this yellow is so Springlike. I can imagine them with a floaty blouse and my denim dungarees - easy breezy 70s style.
three Topshop Limited Edition Daisy Airtex Dress
A pricey frock, but such a pretty one. I'd love this for a special occasion. Actually, if I had it, I think I'd wear it all the time - maybe even in bed and whilst cleaning the bathroom too! ;)
four Saddlebag Trading bag in London Tan
There are so many pretty colour combinations in these British made bags, but I love the classic feel of the original tan. And such a brilliant price for genuine leather as well!
five Zara Dot Print Layered Top
Because floaty and white just sum up Spring/Summer for me, especially paired with...
six M&S Limited Edition Pocket Skinny Jeans
Yellow! I'm obsessed with it at the moment, and whilst I'm not so sure I have the right colouring to carry it off on my top half, bottoms will always be a winner!
seven Solillas Benirras Sandals
I got these sandals in a tan colour last year, and after a bit of wearing in, they were honestly my best buy of the Summer. I wore them with everything. I'd really love a bright shade this year, to wear with Breton dresses and brightly coloured trousers.
If you are a dedicated lover of flats, I can't recommend these highly enough!
eight Astrid and Miyu Tangled Star Midi Ring
If you follow me over on Instagram, you'll know that I'm having a total love-in at the moment with delicate, layered jewellery. I love statement pieces too of course, but pretty, light ones are much more practical for my everyday, busy mum lifestyle. Astrid and Miyu make the sweetest little layering rings, and I adore this star one.
nine ASOS High Shine Rain Mac
It's always tricky getting the outerwear right at this time of year, isn't it? When the weather gets a bit milder, but you're still likely to get soaked in a downpour on the school run.
I think this gorgeous rain mac would keep me dry whilst suiting the season perfectly.
Such a Springlike colour too!
ten Hush 3 Star Stud Earrings
I don't wear earrings often (I really must try harder! ;) ) but these gorgeous star ones might just become a permanent fixture. Classically pretty and in my favourite soft gold.
I reckon that this little lot would see me through Spring and beyond, and all the pieces would mix and match to make lots of different outfit combinations too. Perfect sunny weather combinations!
Now, how long do you reckon before we have some weather to match??
