Wishlist: Basics

There are SO many things I want to get my paws on at the moment it was hard to whittle them all down into one post but these are some of the things on my list. They're all staple items, I'm trying to invest more into basics that are timeless rather than too many trend type pieces. I really want a nice, crisp white shirt and this one from Whistles is perfect for daytime as I don't think it looks to formal or office like. I say these are all 'staples' but I suppose the phone case is more of a want than a need haha, I think it's really cool though. There's some other ones too that have just landed on ASOS so if you're a Markus Lupfer fan check them out! 

I've finally managed to break my skinny jean habit as I've been living in my Glamorous boyfriend jeans (featured here). I think it's time to invest in another similar style, these new Topshop 'Hayden' jeans are just what I'm after. I think they'd look fab with the Bertie sliders! I've nearly convinced myself that I need everything on here, whats your favourite?

Outfit: Pastel Blue Coat

IMG_1485 IMG_1473 IMG_1497 IMG_1475 IMG_1490

Helloo, I took these on Sunday when it was a dull and dreary day but my only chance to snap any photos this week. I've been after a pastel blue coat for absolutely ages, I could never find the right one or when I did they sold out. I came across this on the Dorothy Perkins site but it had sold out in nearly every size, typical. I thought I'd try BHS (cringe!) as I know they stock some DP's bits, and there it was the last one on the site in a 10! I'm over the moon with it. So considering I never wore these trousers I'm wearing them a lot recently, they're still in the sale on ASOS for just £11. My top is new from H&M, I picked it up in the Oxford Circus store, they had a pair of matching jersey culottes that I keep thinking about too. I don't think I'd wear them together but they look nice as separates. Hope everyone has a great rest of their week!

New In: Triangl Marshmallow Underwear Set

IMG_1432 IMG_1448

Hello! Today I thought I'd post about the amazing swimwear/underwear brand Triangl. They caught my eye a while back when I saw their gorgeous sets on Instragram, so I was more than thrilled when they got in touch asking if I'd like to receive a set. I opted for the Lucie set in 'Marshmallow'. I was torn between this and the plain black but I thought this would be cute under mesh tops as you can see the detail better. They don't come in particular bra sizes so I went for the small in both, they fit me fine but they do have a size guide if you're unsure. What do you think? Are you a fan of Triangl?

So a little life update, I just completed my first week interning in the press office of Dune, so many gorgeous shoes! I'm there for three more weeks and then it's back to uni assignments and exams *boo*. After uni is out the way I'm heading back to Oh My Love (I interned for them last summer) for a few weeks, and then I'm off to Barcelona! A VERY busy couple of months ahead but I'm loving it, I think this summer will be a gooden!

Outfit: Wildfox Couture Tee

What a fabulous day of weather its been today! I thought I'd steer away from black for once and wear some lighter shades. I have this trench in black too but it's so cheap I thought I'd pick up the cream as well, I've also spied a navy version but I'm trying to ignore that. I sorted through a load of summer clothing the other day and came across this Oh My Love skirt, I forgot how much I like it, it's so comfortable. My shoes are a new purchase, they're from ASOS and were only £35 which I thought was really good, I wanted a pair that I could wear in the day and these are perfect. Last but not least, my tee from Wildfox, I've adored this brand for years so I was thrilled to be able to choose a piece from the website. Their tee's, sweatshirts and knits are the perfect california-cool look - slouchy but cute!

This week has been pretty manic, my project for uni (we opened a pop up shop in the town) took off on Monday so I was in Northampton for a couple of days at the start of the week. I've then been getting as much work done on my assignments as I can, I start my internship at Dune on Monday so I want to be on top of things. I'm getting really excited for summer now, and I booked a trip to Barcelona with Charlie for June time so I'm counting down the days!

Outfit: She Likes Gladiator Sandals

IMG_1290 IMG_1330 IMG_1354 IMG_1311 IMG_1349

Apologies for my slightly dishevelled look going on here, me and mum decided to go on a 3 mile round walk to Tesco to get a bit of exercise. Of course it was sunny until a freak hailstorm came along for a good 10 minutes! Thankfully the sun appeared again so I thought I would take a few snaps. A pretty simple outfit today, I adore this mint green coat from Sheinside and it's such a bargain too! If you're going to order I'd recommend express delivery as it comes a lot quicker, this came in just over a week which isn't bad for China. These gladiator shoes are just what I've been looking for, perfect for this awkward spring/but sometimes still cold weather! They're a really great fit as well as sometimes I find shoes awkward with sizing. 

I bought these trousers from Asos ages ago and sort of forget about them (sign I have too much stuff), I rediscovered them and have been wearing them quite a bit recently. They make a nice change from denim and they're also only £15 in the sale at the mo if you fancy a pair too! My cropped sweat top is a Missguided buy, it looks like they've sold out of the white but they've introduced a few cute pastel colours which I've linked to above. I hope everyone has a fab start to their week!
