A Late January Wish List

As much as I'm trying to avoid browsing online as my finances still haven't recovered from Christmas, I still can't stop myself from online window shopping, and there are quite a few pieces I wish I could buy. At the moment I just can't afford to treat myself, but it doesn't hurt to dream, does it?

These are some of my favourite picks of the moment. Hopefully I'll find a way to make a couple of them mine eventually...

1. New Look Inspire Rabbit Specs T-shirt £7.99
This rabbit t-shirt is one of the cutest tops I've seen in a long time. It's not the most fashionable of pieces, but it's won me over because it's so adorable. Well, I'm sure some of you now me and rabbits by now... I love 'em! I'd wear it tucked in to a skirt, or dressed down with a pair of jeans.

2. New Look Apricot Voile Maxi Skirt £14.99
After seeing Hannah rocking this lovely skirt on her blog recently, I fell in love with it. I've been wanting to add some new maxi skirts in to my wardrobe for a while as it's something I'm lacking. I really love this one. It's so floaty and versatile, and the colour is a little different than others I've seen. Apricot is quite an unusual colour for Winter, but it's great to see some Spring lines beginning to filter through in to shops again. It's definitely a skirt that would work throughout the year.

Since making the collage last night, a couple of new variations of this skirt have popped up online in a deep raspberry and navy. I'm now leaning towards those two colours a little bit more than the apricot.

3. ASOS Curve Shirt in Pug Print £36.00

The print is actually of French Bulldogs, not pugs, but isn't it adorable? I love the print, the lovely pale blue colour, and the pretty pink collar tips. I think it would be a great piece to transition from Winter in to Spring, and would look great with jeans, under dresses, or tucked in to skirts.

4. Stila via ASOS All Is Bright Lipglaze set £12.50
I've had this set in my ASOS saved list since Christmas, and I'm dying to make a purchase. The set includes eight Stila lip glosses in beautiful shades. Ordinarily Stila lip glosses retail around the £15 mark (each), but this set of EIGHT not only retailed for just £18.50, but is now on sale for just £12.50! Now if this isn't a bargain I don't know what is!

5. Models Own via ASOS Beetle Juice Nail Polish in Indian Ocean £5.00
I've been wanting to try this nail polish for about a year, but I still haven't committed! The colours are amazing.

6. Models Own Via ASOS Beetle Juice Nail Polish in Emerald Black Beetle £5.00

I'm also drawn to this dark green nail polish. I'm loving dark green nails right now.

7. ASOS Scallop Double Buckle Across Body Bag £25.00
I know I already have several satchels, but this one appeals to me because it's a little different to the rest. Most scalloped edging you see on clothes and accessories are very delicate and dainty, but this one is big and bold- it reminds me of a cloud. I think it would be a perfect bag for spring time. Especially with my yellow polka dot dress.

8. Cath Kidston Wild Strawberry Skirt £35.00

One of Cath Kidston's new season patterns is a very English strawberry print. It's lovely! And this skirt is something I'd consider 'very me'. Cath Kidston clothes go up to a size 16, and while the skirts are marked from XS to L (large being a 14-16), I'm curious to see if I could make it work for me as it's elasticated. Perhaps something I'll look in to soon...

9. River Island Green Belted Jersey Maxi Skirt £25.00
I've wanted this teal skirt for months and I still haven't lost hope. I've always wanted to try maxi skirts in A/W and still haven't, but I think this would look great with a biker jacket and a band tee (tucked in), or some sort of lacy top, for Winter.

10. ASOS Curve Teal Leggings £10.00
I could really do with some new leggings, and I'm particularly craving some new coloured ones. The only coloured pair I currently own are purple and I absolutely love them. I'm drawn to ASOS's teal leggings, and also their oxblood ones of the same design. Can anyone tell me what ASOS's sizing is like when it comes to leggings?

11. Ruby's Closet via New Look Inspire Navy Cat Print Bow Dress £35.00
I love how cute and quirky this dress is. I don't own a single cat print anything, and this print really is amazing, and I also love the bow detail. This dress also comes in black, but it's the navy one which I'm particularly coveting.

12. Dorothy Perkins Blue Paisley Print Jeggings £25.00
Jeggings make a great, comfortable alternative to jeans. They're particularly great if you want to create a sleek look and for ladies who find jeans uncomfortable on the stomach. These jeggings have a subtle paisley pattern all over them, and they're so beautiful. I'd wear them under a pretty tunic with a pair of boots or ballet pumps.
