Here in the UK, we were lucky enough to have one or two days or glorious sunshine. And then it completely disappeared. It’s ranged from warm and balmy, to actually pretty freezing considering it’s now June, and all I can hope is that it sorts itself out in time for proper summer.
I always slightly regret starting a blog post by talking about the weather – it always seems too obviously British and something I should avoid doing. But really the weather plays such a huge part in our lives that it can be a bit unavoidable. Even when it comes to a simple wishlist post. But nonetheless, considering I do live in the UK and I’ve titled this a ‘summer’ wishlist, I felt the need to explain, given that there are quite a few jumpers, woollen ones at that, plus trousers and not one pair of sandals in sight. This is the realistic version of a UK summer wishlist, for people who have to spend Monday-Friday in an office and only get the weekend to rejoice in all things sunny.
Browsing Asos is one of my favourite past times. Their web developers really hit gold when they decided to add a ‘saved items’ feature. Mine is constantly full to the brim, I’m always adding new things and removing things that I’ve gone off slightly. It means I make far more conscious decisions about what I actually buy and I have to really love it to have had it saved for a few weeks or so.
These are a few items that I’m really loving right now. There’s a few bits that will be perfect for summer afternoons in the park or in the pub garden. Some pieces that I will be sure to buy in time for my holiday, plus some more work appropriate items. The things I’m diggin’ the most at the moment are the grey slim fit boyfriend blazer, which will be perfect for the office and for cooler evenings out. The grey jumper with the pug patch elbows, because it’s just too cute not to love. The yellow crop trousers, and the little blue shorts. A high waisted bikini is my swimwear saviour – I was literally glued to my old training costume before these started hitting the shops. The fear of being seen in a standard bare-all bikini was far too much to handle, so keeping things in check with a cute slightly more covering number is just fab. I also really really love the Stan Smith trainers, but I’m just not sure about buying something that literally everyone and their Mum already has in their wardrobe.
I hope you like this slightly different style of post from me. I had so much fun making it! You might have to bear with me as I re-learn the ins-and-outs of Indesign. My uni days seem so long ago now… Anyway the links are all below, and do let me know which pieces you love, or if there are any items you think would be a really great addition to the collection here!
