Top Picks #46

  1. Dress, £55 – Yumi*

I love this print and the shape of the dress. It looks perfect for a summer holiday somewhere sunny in Europe. Italy, Portugal, somewhere like that.

2. Bag, £55 – Vendula London

Embarrassingly when I stumbled across this bag, I let out a little squeak! I love anything with hot air balloons so this is absolutely perfect. Shame about the price though. I don’t see myself spending that much on a small bag.

3. Sandals, £10 – ASOS*

Since it’s April, you know what time it is; sandal season on the high street. I realised I’d better do my honeymoon wardrobe shopping soon. Because by the time I start thinking about it in August there will probably be winter coats in stock and not a pair of sandals in sight! These are a bargain and because they’re jelly sandals, I’m hoping they will be comfortable.

4. Bag, £18 – Topshop*

I love this bag! It’s so sweet.

5. Earrings, £6 – Accessorize

Now that I’ve got my ears pierced again I’m counting down the weeks until they’re healed and I can wear whatever I want in them. I love the simple design of these.

6. Plate, £22.50 – Jim Bob Art @ Etsy

I already own a plate from this shop and I love it. And after spotting this one I need it in my life. It’s perfectly me. I love pancakes and I’m a Hufflepuff so the badger is a perfect fit. Need!

7. Blouse, £25 – Joanie

Another great print! I haven’t bought many blouses since leaving office life but I’d definitely be tempted with this one. It would look great with skinny jeans!

8. Ear cuff set, £5.99 – New Look

I’ve been wanting to try out ear cuffs for awhile now and this one fits the bill.

9. Sunglasses, £8 – ASOS*

Since my favourite sunglasses broke, I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement. These ASOS set are perfect!

10. Sundress, £55 – Sugarhill Boutique

The length of this dress is perfect! And the print is so summery. Looks like I’m gravitating towards sundresses at the moment. Now if only the weather would match what’s in the shops!

Top Picks #45

  1. Dress, £60 – Oasis*

I love everything about this dress. It’s simple but the jacquard material makes it interesting. The colour and cut are gorgeous too! Definitely something you can wear again and again by changing up your accessories.

  1. Book, £11.89 – Amazon*

I’ve heard good things about this book. It would be ideal for when I eventually create my capsule wardrobe.

  1. Sundress, £40 – Joanie

Hello sundress of dreams! Gorgeous colour, fabric and it has pockets! Another I spotted on Instagram and fell for. This also comes in navy.

  1. Earrings, £10 – Beadish Delight @ Etsy

I just can’t wait to have pierced ears again. These pretties just scream spring to me. And they would be a great way of introducing some long missing colour in my wardrobe.

  1. Throw, £15.99 – Dunelm

We’ve had the throws in our house for a number of years now (all of them samples from my previous job) and they’re getting pretty worn so when we decorate the living room, it would be nice to have some throws that match.

  1. Pin, £7.50 – Anita Ivancenko @ Etsy

I love the detail on this pin! Would totally wear it all year round.

  1. Bag, £18 – ASOS*

More cat lady things! I’m still after a black cross body bag so this may be a contender. Plus, look at it’s little face!

  1. Pj bottoms, £26 – Cath Kidston

I think I originally saw these on Instagram and I immediately fell in love. My only problem with them is that they don’t have a matching top. They have a pj t-shirt that is for mixing and matching but I love my Bridget Jones style pjs. It’s so annoying as I would totally get these otherwise. They even have pockets dammit!

  1. Earring Set, £12 – ASOS*

More celestial stuff! All the celestial stuff!

10. Shoes, $114.99 – Modcloth

Aren’t these shoes a dream? Completely ignoring the price of course! These would be awesome for summer. I love a novelty accessory I do.

Top Picks #44

1.Dress, £50 – Dorothy Perkins*

Doesn’t this dress just scream spring? It would be perfect for one of the weddings I’m going to.

2. Earrings, £5 – ASOS*

These earrings are too cute! I can’t wait to have pierced ears again.

3. Shoes, £25 – ASOS*

These shoes definitely appeal to my cat lady side! Though I’d probably prefer them as a pump with no strap around the ankle.

4. Dress, £58 – Sugarhill Boutique

This dress is perfect! Ideal for summer and I love the map print. Plus the length is great too.

5. Jumpsuit, £28.80 – Joanie

I’m not usually one for jumpsuits but I am in love with this one. More stars I’m afraid. It looks super comfy. And it’s on sale too!

6. Backpack, £29 – Accessorize

This backpack is even better than the one I found for my last top picks. Sold. So looking forward to my honeymoon!

7. Beauty and the Beast Soundtrack, £9.99 – Amazon*

It’s not even been out a week yet and I’ve already seen Beauty and the Beast twice. Topher and I have been singing the songs constantly and are definitely going to be getting the soundtrack to play in the car.

8. Pillow, £75 – Urban Outfitters*

I need one of these pillows in my life! Perfect for working in bed. My current situation of just using my regular pillows ends up hurting my back. This looks so comfy!

9. Notebook, £10 – Paperchase

My current bullet journal is filling up fast and with a £5 treat voucher due from Paperchase, I’m on the hunt for a new one. This one is really pretty and quite similar to my current journal.

10. Top, $54.99 – Modcloth*

This top is so cute. I love the ladybirds on the collar. It looks really versatile – I could wear it with both skinny jeans and tucked into skirts.

Top Picks #43

  1. Blue pjs, £45 – Emily and Fin

Be still my heart! Aren’t these the cutest? I like the shape of them too and especially since the shorts look like a decent length. One of my pet hates with pj shorts are that more often than not they are always way too shorts. I really don’t see the point in booty shorts – you may as well just wear knickers to bed! I love the colour. My only annoyance is with the price.

  1. Harry Potter T-shirt, £19.99 – Truffle Shuffle

And speaking of t-shirts – how perfect is this Harry Potter one? I saw it on Becky Bedbug’s blog and immediately had to have it. I’m pretty sure I’ve also seen this image as a poster.

  1. Navy pjs, £45 – Emily and Fin

These are exactly the same as the other pj set only the print is different. I love the contrasting piping detail on this one especially!

  1. Necklace, £20 – Onetenzeroseven @Etsy

This necklace is so fun and pretty. Perfect for summer. I almost had this kind of bunting for my wedding so the necklace would be a nice reminder!

  1. Card, £4.23 – Lucky Horse Press @Etsy

Topher and I seriously need this card for our gallery wall collection. It describes our relationship perfectly!

  1. Backback, £20 – ASOS*

I’ve been looking for a smallish backback to use for our honeymoon this year and this fits the bill.

  1. T-shirt, £22.84 – Two String Jane @Etsy

I feel like I need more t-shirts in my wardrobe and this one fits the bill perfectly. It looks so comfy!

  1. Dress, £90 – Boden*

How pretty is the print on this dress? And the shape looks great too. It’s been awhile since I got a dress.

  1. Necklace, £10 – Accessorize

I’m not usually one for simplistic necklaces but this one is something different. Accessorize now have a range of Arabic letter jewellery including necklaces and bracelets and it’s pretty cool to see my initial in my family’s language. Plus I definitely know that this is right as my name is the only thing I can write in Arabic!

  1. Top, £32 – Miss Selfridge*

I don’t usually go for cold shoulder style tops but there’s something about this top that really appeals to me. I’d pair this with skinny jeans and my yellow peep toe flats. Great for spring.

Top Picks #42

1.Laptop Case, £42.50 – Dessi Designs @Etsy

Because I don’t have enough polkadots in my life apparently. I’ve been wanting a laptop case for years now but never found the right one. This one is awesome.

2. Dungaree dress, £24.99 – H&M*

I like the idea of having something like this for my capsule wardrobe that I’ll eventually be having. Imagine how many different things you could wear it with! And the fact that you could wear it all year round depending on tights, t-shirts, jumpers etc. So versatile.

3. Vase, £18 – Oliver Bonas*

This seems like quite a grown up choice for me. I’m not entirely sure where I’d put it in my house but I’d love to put some bright yellow flowers in it wherever it goes. It looks so summery and happy.

4. Top, £15 – Dorothy Perkins*

Yep, still attracted to the monochrome. I love colour but there doesn’t appear to be much of it in the shops at the moment. Just me? Ah well, I still like the detail on this scalloped lace top.

5. Shoes, $54.99 – Modcloth*

I love these shoes! They’re not exactly what I would usually go for but there’s just something about them that I like. The pattern is fun and summery and I can totally see myself wearing them with a sleeveless top and jeggings. They also come in blue!

6. Skirt, £95 – ASOS*

This skirt is insane! I love it. Absolutely no idea where I’d wear it but isn’t it cool? I’d probably wear it like the model does and just wear a plain top to balance things out. Though I’d wear sandals, not trainers! I’m definitely not down with the kids enough for that!

7. Scissors, £5.95 – Ohh Deer

These may be a bit ridiculous and indulgent but I love them. Everyone needs pretty scissors right?

8. Pen, £3 – Accessorize

This pen makes me giggle. That’s all. It’s just so fluffy!
