Liberty Print Blazers: Nike; Kimono: Topshop; Silk Skirt: COS; Kate Moss for Topshop Dress: Topshop; Sandals: Birkenstock
Welcome to my first ever I Want That post… As of next week it will be on a Monday but I didn’t want you to miss out this week. Essentially it’ll be a place where I can share what’s been languishing in my online shopping baskets for the past week, whispering that I buy it…
When the Liberty Print Nikes came out last year, I pined and pined for them. I did not think so much yearning could exist for a shoe but hey, whaddayaknow? This year’s offerings are not QUITE as spectacular but these fairly low-key ones would snuggle up quite nicely with my already-quite-large trainer collection.
The kimono trend is something I attempt to dip in to every summer and usually end up failing at… I’ve never found one that’s the perfect length for my short torso and dinky legs (I’m being kind to my body here). This Topshop beauty from the petite range comes pretty close though and makes me want to wear it whilst lounging by the pool, sipping on pina coladas.
Kate Moss’ much anticipated Topshop collection hasn’t disappointed once again. Can Mossy do no wrong?! This dress was without a doubt my fav. It’s perfect for lazy picnics in the sunshine. (As a side note, I think if I actually attempted any picnics in it, there’d be Fanta stains and Hobnob crumbs down it within seconds but let’s keep up the pretence, shall we?)
I love Cos for the simple fact that they do ‘hiding a jelly belly’ style to perfection. Just eaten a full Nandos platter to yourself? No problem. Couldn’t decide between cake or ice cream so had both? That’s ok! Their forgiving silhouettes mean I’m always drawn to them and, as an avid Nandos/cake/ice cream lover, this silk skater skirt has all my summer-time munching needs covered.
The leopard-print Birkies are probably the epitome of ugly-shoe-wearing that’s sweeping the fash world right now. I do not care. I do not care so much that I’ve actually already purchased these and am eagerly awaiting their arrival. Join the ugly-shoe revolution with me! (Or not… I hear gladiators are back this summer)
What have you been lusting after this week?
