Top Picks #56

Here’s what I’ve had my eye on recently. It’s weird to think that I can actually afford a few of these things now. What a novelty!

Jumper, £65 – Cath Kidston*

Top Picks #56 - jumper

This jumper is so twee but I love it so much. It would go with everything. Perfect for both work and just hanging out.

Pinafore, £30 – Monki @ ASOS*

Top Picks #56 - pinafore

It’s a pinafore. It’s polka dot print. How could I not want this? I’d wear it with brightly coloured t-shirts.

Headphones, £25 – Urban Outfitters*

Top Picks #56 - headphones

I desperately need some wireless headphones for the gym. These are both stylish and functional. Plus they’re in the sale – score!

Cushion, £35 – Bombay Duck

Top Picks #56 - cushion

We definitely have enough cushions right now but how cute is this one? I love things that say hello.

Necklace, £37.14 – Wanderlust + Co

Top Picks #56 - necklace

This necklace is just so pretty. Shame it’s currently sold out. Though it looks like it might get restocked at some point so fingers crossed. It is still available in silver however.

Dress, £118 – Anthropologie*

Top Picks #56 - dress

I’m living for this dress. The detailing is perfect – I love the shape, the print, the button down front and the two-tiered skirt. Shame about the price though!

Poster, £25.08 – Posters Garage @ Etsy*

Top Picks #56 - poster

Topher and I are starting to consider what posters to buy and frame for our living room gallery wall. We’ve both agreed, Disnerds that we are, we want a Disney park map poster. This one is gorgeous – the close up detail is so pretty.

Lunch Bag, £11 – ASOS*

Top Picks #56 - lunch bag

So at the moment, I bring my lunch in a plastic bag. Classy, no? I think this would be a reasonable replacement. It doesn’t even look like a lunch bag which I love.

Top, £19.99 – New Look*

Top Picks #56 - top

I’m really feeling the colour yellow at the moment. How pretty is this top? It would be perfect for work.

Bag, £340 – Kate Spade*

Top Picks #56 - bag

I was so sad to hear about the death of Kate Spade recently. I always loved her style and always aspired to own some of her pieces. So far I’ve only managed a watch and her book. I need a black bag for work. This bag is expensive. But it sure is pretty. Maybe if I went to an outlet I’d have a chance at finding something similar at a cheaper price?

Here’s what’s on my lust list this month.

Backpack, $79.90 – Boxlunch

top picks #55 - backpack

I seriously need this backpack in my life. I’m loving the whole Harry Potter collection from Danielle Nicole but this one is by far my favourite. As soon I saw it on Instagram I was hooked.

Shirt, £45 – Cath Kidston

top picks #55 - shirt

I want this print on everything I own. In fact, Cath Kidston do have this print on quite a few things in store at the moment. Walking round their store yesterday I wanted them all. This shirt may have to be on my birthday list though. I just wish they had a short sleeve version too.

Dress, £38 – Joanie

top picks #55 - dress

This dress is super cute and versatile. It makes me want to go on a picnic.

Dress, $108 – Shop Disney

top picks #55 - small world dress

This dress is everything! Fans of It’s a Small World might recognise the print. I actually tried on a dress with this same fabric in Disneyland on my honeymoon but it just didn’t suit me. This silhouette however is definitely more my style. The price tag is the only downer. Birthday present perhaps?

Earrings, £32 – Laura Jane Cullen @ Etsy

top picks #55 - earrings

I’ve grown tired of earrings recently but I do want to wear something. Preferably gold ones that I can wear in the shower and not have to bother putting in and out all the time. These triangle ones fit the bill.

Dress, £22.99 – New Look

top picks #55 - sundress

This dress is just perfect for summer. If the sun makes an appearance that is!

Socks, $9 – Modcloth

top picks #55 - socks

Who says socks have to be boring?

Highlighter, £7 – Paperchase

top picks #55 - highlighter
I’m always a fan of novelty stationery and this highlighter is bonkers!

Metal Drink Bottle, £20 – Typo

top picks #55 - water bottle

I’ve been on the hunt for a metal water bottle for a while and this one is perfect.

Vest, $28.90 – Boxlunch

top picks #55 - vest

This vest is so cute! I loved the Aristocats when I was a kid.

So I’m trying something new for my top picks. Instead of putting them all in one graphic, I thought you’d like to get up close and personal with each item. I actually prefer that when I’m reading other people’s wish list posts so I thought I’d see if you guys liked it too. Let me know what you think!

Mug, £5.99 – New Look

top picks - llama mug

I love this mug so much! Everything about it is so cute. And you can’t argue with that price…though my already stuffed mug cupboard might.

Necklace, $29 – Modcloth

top picks - necklace

How gorgeous is this necklace? It just screams spring to me. Now if only it could tell the weather outside!

Earrings, £15 – Loubijoux @ Etsy 

top picks - earrings

I love the shape of these earrings. They’re so simple but very chic. I could wear them all day, everyday. This Etsy shop also has a load of other beautiful items that you can browse at your own risk. Definitely a payday destination.

Bag, £25 – Accessorize top picks - heart bag

I love a good novelty bag and this one is just quirky enough without going overboard. The heart shape is sweet and I love the stud detail. Perfect for adding a bit of fun to your outfit.

Instax Camera, £85 – Urban Outfitters

top picks - hello kitty camera

So this camera is on my list purely for the kawaii factor. How amazing is this? I’ve never had an Instax camera but I’ve always wanted one and this one is just too cute.

Cushion Cover, £1.90 – ROMWE

top picks - cushion cover

This cushion cover is beautiful. I think it would look great on our grey sofa. Plus you can’t beat that price!

T-shirt, $29 – Modcloth

top picks - t-shirt

I’ve been craving a lot of ramen recently. Does it show?

Bag, £22.87 – Milicancrelat @ Etsy

top picks - bag

So this bag might just remind me of Luna a little bit…

Shirt, £17.99 – H&M

top picks - shirt

It’s Mickey! And stripes! Double win.

Dress, £54 – Sugarhill Boutique

top picks - dress

This print is adorable – Enough said.

Top Picks #53

 

1.Jumper, £45 – Yumi*

I remember Yumi did a very similar jumper a few years ago. I coveted it then and once again I want one. Though I still prefer it without the camera straps.

2. Necklace, £19.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

Love this so much.

3. Jumper, £38 – Oasis*

Of course it’s another striped jumper but this one has cute little bows on the hips. A fun twist on a classic.

4. Top, £25 – Joanie*

Joanie really need to stop doing this to me. First the dinosaur striped tee I wrote about here and now this.

5. Earrings, £19.42 – Jamber Jewels @ Etsy*

Since a lot of my earring collection is past it’s best – I’m on the hunt for suitable replacements. This pair of mismatched earrings is simple but quirky.

6. Bookends, $69 – Modcloth*

I don’t really have a need for bookends, at least not at the moment but there was just something about these. They remind me of the Golden Gate Bridge and Topher’s and my honeymoon.

7. Necklace, £12.50 – Eclectic Eccentricity

I could stare at this necklace all day; it’s just so pretty. I’ve always had a fascination with the moon so this accessory would definitely fit right into my look.

8. Swimsuit, £60 – Boden*

So first of all, it’s nowhere near swimsuit season. And second of all – I rarely go swimming. Finally third, I’m happy with the swimsuit I have. However you can’t deny how awesome this one is. It looks like something a 1950s bombshell would wear. Plus it comes in loads of patterns and I want them all.

9. T-shirt, £18.67 – Redbubble

I’ve fallen in love with Redbubble over the last couple of months. It’s the perfect place for gifts as you can really niche it to what you’re interested in. Great for my nerdy crew and I. I’ve found loads of Disney, Harry Potter and other stuff but this t-shirt was just so cool. I feel more at home in t-shirts these days so this is ideal.

10. Dress, $89 – Modcloth*

Again, summer is a long way off but this dress looks like the perfect thing to see out those too warm days. Because there were a lot of them last year! I don’t know why everyone is so shocked every time summer eventually arrives – we do get good weather sometimes on our little island.

Top Picks #51

  1. Bag, £65 – Accessorize*

More stars I know! But look how pretty and it’s leather so you know it’ll last.

  1. Jumper, £40 – Oasis*

How amazing is this collar? I love it so much. I’ve seen slightly similar ones in the past but it’s usually something like cats, never seen it done with zebras. I can easily see this as something you could dress up or down and would go with skirts, trousers and jeans. Get in my wardrobe.

  1. T-shirt, £12 – Dorothy Perkins*

I used to say this phrase sarcastically when people asked me how life was but these days (especially not working in an office), I actually am. Sure things aren’t perfect but they sure as hell are a whole lot better.

  1. Dress, £24.50 – Joy

I spy a pretty dress! This kind of reminds me of a striped dress I used to have a few years ago. Best thing is that this is on sale!

  1. Skirt, £35 – Joanie

I really seem to be drawn to this style of skirt recently. I really like how summery this one is. And it has pockets – bonus!

  1. Print, £11.59 – We Are Extinct @ Etsy

This print is so true! My furbabies definitely keep things chipper around this house. How can I be sad with those two looking at me? Topher definitely agrees.

  1. Trainers, £34.99 – ASOS*

I suddenly find myself drawn to seeking out a pair of comfy but cute lace up trainers. I have my high top converse which I love but I just want something to act as an in between those and my ballet pumps. Still dithering over what colour but these ASOS ones are nice. Plus I do love a bit of glitter.

  1. Bedding, £27.99 – New Look

I love love love this bedding set! Unfortunately Topher does not. So it can never be mine *sobs. Though in actual fact it can never be mine because they only do it in a double.

  1. Pin, £14.08 – Bottle of Clouds @ Etsy

This pin just makes me smile. Love it. Describes both my cats! Sadly it only ships within the USA – boo.

  1. Blouse, $49.99 – Modcloth*

A blouse with dinosaurs on and a bow at the collar – what more could I ask for?
