Wednesday Wish List

Well, hello there!

This week I have dozens of gems to share with you; in fact there's more than sixty pieces in this week's wish list and it's probably the largest wish list I've ever put together! Yep, I got a little carried away... oops! I just couldn't leave any of these beauties out. 

1 // 2 // 3 // 4

Let's start with the polka dot dresses, because it's a well known fact that a girl can never have too many polka dot dresses in her wardrobe. I've got my beady little eyes on two beautiful swing dresses by Bea and Dot at Modcloth; aren't they just stunning?! The red one also has ladybirds on it!!

I really like the simplicity of the two button down sun dresses from Evans. It's not often that Evans' clothes appeal to me, but these two are lovely and would be ideal for throwing on over a pair of leggings and wearing with sandals for a casual summer look.

The fabulous skater dresses just keep on coming, and that makes me happy because they are one of my favourite styles to wear. They're so effortlessly stylish and comfortable, too. I love the pretty daisy print dresses from Koko, and the heart print dress from Evans is a classic. One of each, please!

These billowing bold patterned midi and maxi dresses from ASOS Curve and New Look Inspire are all so fun and eye catching. They would be perfect for keeping cool on those stifling hot summer days, and for wearing to festivals, on holiday, and to the beach. I particularly love the unusual scarf dress (3) which is a mixture of animal print and florals. Amazing! I need more maxi dresses in my life.

I'm a little bit obsessed with fruit themed fashion at the moment; especially pineapple prints and motifs, for some reason. The good thing is, they're everywhere right now! I love these three novelty tees from New Look Inspire, especially the white tee.

I rarely wear jeans these days, but I can't resist denim dresses and skirts during the summer. I love the button down denim dress from ASOS Curve; I'm sure I had a dress just like it in the nineties! It's perfection. The denim midi skirts from Dorothy Perkins have also caught my eye; they're a great alternative to jeans and they could be dressed so many different ways. 99% of my top collection could easily be styled with them. I can't decide which wash I like best, though.

I'm loving all the rose prints which are around at the moment, and have a soft spot for crochet and lace detailing,  so naturally the bubble hem top and the crochet floral maxi dress from Dotty P's have both caught my eye... along with dozens more!

These novelty bags are probably my favourite finds of the week. I'm amazed by all of the wacky designs that I keep finding. I've found a pineapple, a lemon wedge (which is definitely not hanging on my bedroom door as I type...), a cat, a giant teacup, and some fabulous clutches with pineapple, flamingo, and ice cream prints. I adore them all! What will they think of next?

My love of handbags isn't just restricted to novelties; I love all kinds of bags. I've been lusting after the mint green envelope cross body bag from Accessorize for a few weeks now and I know it would go perfectly with my yellow polka dot dress. The gingham bag is adorable, and I love the tan Marc b. Hudson shopper.

I recently realised that all of my summer sandals are falling apart, and I have nothing suitable to wear on my feet on hot days, so I've been hunting for new sandals. (It's been three years since I last bought any!) I find it difficult to find sandals to fit my very wide feet, and it's frustrating that it's even harder to find pretty wide fit sandals. I usually have to look to Evans for sandals, but nothing had been catching my eye until last week when the above designs appeared online. They're not as pretty as most standard fit sandals, but I do like them, and I think they'll be great with everything from dresses to jeans during the summer. I've ordered a selection to try on and choose from, so fingers crossed a couple of pairs will look cute on my ugly feet.

I'm also quite taken with this selection of shoes. Yes, even the ugly Birkenstocks with the pretty Liberty print. The grey pumps with the scalloped edging are my favourite, but the ice cream cone heels, and the polka dot cat and mouse slippers are equally gorgeous.

And then there's the accessories. I've been coveting so many lately. I made the mistake of browsing Rockafrilly's website, after Char featured one of their grapefruit necklaces in an outfit post, and it caught my eye. Big mistake. I now want one of everything! I adore the strawberries, the cameos, the Russian dolls, the swans and shells. They're all so quirky and exactly my style. It's time to start saving, I think!

ASOS also have a great selection of accessories right now, and their hair bands, scarves and crowns keep capturing my heart. 

Of course, I would never be able to purchase all the pieces which make it on to these wish lists, but I don't think it hurts to dream. I enjoy sharing my favourite finds with you here, and showing you some of the gems that are out there. It would be selfish to keep them to myself now, wouldn't it?! 

I hope you enjoy reading them!

What's on your wish list this week? Has anything in my wish list caught your eye?

  3. Love all your picks as usual! Especially that DP maxi dress, ohmygoodness it's perfect. :D I ordered the New Look pineapple shirt and it runs both a bit sheer and small. I had to order a size up, but I don't care. It's fab. And yes, I'm obsessed with tropical prints at the moment, particularly pineapples and palm trees, lol! :)

    1. Thanks, Dani! I think you need that maxi dress! It's so pretty. Thanks for the info about the pineapple shirt. I don't mind about sizing up these days. (There was a time when I was horrified by the thought and wouldn't do it but I got over that fear). Tropical prints are fabulous, and pineapple prints are the best! xx

  4. Oh my God, I think this is the best one yet! I'm on a shopping ban until July as I'm paying megabucks for a blog rebrand, so expect a LOT of these things to feature in a wishlist on my blog soon.

    I'm trying so SO hard not to look, but ugh the fruit bags, and all the necklaces. You're a bad, bad girl Louise! x x

    1. Aw, thanks Leah. I'm glad you like it. It's a shame you're on a ban, but a bit of online window shopping doesn't hurt! Your rebrand sounds exciting.

      Haha, guilty! I just can't help myself! xx
