Charlotte’s Magic Night Cream – Stuart Weitzman Alllegs Boots – Dodo Bar Or Top – Étoile Isabel Marant Skirt – Gucci Horse-Bit Loafers – Frends Mother of Pearl Headphones – No 21 Bow Sandals – Isabel Marant Bracelet – Pierre Hardy Marble Sandals
A girl can dream, right? While it’s highly unlikely that more than one or two of these things will make it into my wardrobe this spring, I love putting wishlists together as it’s a great way to suss out and outline what I want to be wearing for the season ahead. I’m certainly leaning towards more whimsical items to spice up my wardrobe, which is mostly (but not entirely) made up of simple and classic pieces.
Having received a tester in the Charlotte Tilbury advent calender, I am keen to get my hands on Charlotte’s Magic Night Cream. My sister bought me a full size Magic Day Cream for Christmas and my skin is really thanking me for using them both religiously, but that tester is just about finished, and I’m not ready to stop using it!
I drive, so I don’t use headphones anywhere near as much as I used to, but that doesn’t make me any less in love with these Frends mother of pearl headphones. They’d be great for flying and train journeys into London, and they’re certainly a lot more stylish than the grubby Apple pair that live in a tangled mess at the bottom of my handbag… I don’t know if I could bring myself to use them at the gym, but they’d definitely boost your cool factor on or off the treadmill.
Isabel Marant jewellery is one of my favourite ways to treat myself, dainty high quality pieces at seriously good price points. A lot of designer jewellery comes with a pretty hefty price tag, but these pieces are far more reasonable. This bracelet would be the perfect addition to any arm party, or would even look pretty by itself!
The two clothing items on my wish list are certainly more summer orientated, but I hate winter with a passion so I tend to get ahead of myself when spring summer is on the horizon. I really want to start dipping my toes back into pattern (I’ve been on the all-black-everything bandwagon for a little too long now) and as much as I love it, it can get a little boring. These monochrome patterned pieces are the perfect way to add a bit more fun into my wardrobe without straying too far from my aesthetic. It’s likely you’ll never see me in a bright multi-coloured ensemble, but one of these pieces with an otherwise simple outfit and maybe some interesting shoes would add a certain something extra to my look next season.
Shoes, shoes, shoes… If you know me, you know I love shoes. Shoes are my thing. This would explain why there are 4 pairs of shoes and no bags in my wish list. I do love bags, there’s a Fendi peekaboo, an embroidered Gucci Dionysus, a couple more Gucci’s, some Louis Vuitton’s and one or two Chanel’s that I’d quite like to get my hands on, but bags are a far pricier habit to maintain than shoes, so I don’t tend to get quite as excited, as I know the likelihood of me actually being able to afford them is significantly less than the shoes. These Stuart Weitzman Alllegs boots are the Highland’s cousin and come a few inches higher up the leg. I tried them on when I bought my leather Highlands, but went for the leather as I was buying them just before winter and suede didn’t seem like the smart choice, but going into spring I think these boots would be a lot of fun to style with skirts and dresses. The Pierre Hardy blue marble print sandals are beautiful from every angle, they really need no explanation. I love a bright, fun sandal year round, and I’m beginning to realise I have a bit of a “thing” for blue shoes. On the flats front, ever since buying my No 21 khaki mules I haven’t been able to get the flats off my mind. Of all the items on my wish list, these and the Gucci loafers are the two most likely things to make it into my wardrobe. I ignored flats for a while and focused mainly on heels, but in recent months I’ve acquired a few seriously cool pairs and realised just how important it is to have good flats in your arsenal.
So there you have it, my spring wishlist, I feel thoroughly inspired for the season ahead! Try making a wishlist or a mood board for the coming months, it’s great for providing a bit of direction and helping you fill in the gaps in your wardrobe.
