Summer Wishlist

4/07/2011


Just a few things I've been drooling over after the sun decided to make an appearance this week. I’m really not feeling the whole colour blocking that seems to be taking over everywhere at the moment, I’ve never been a fan of in your face clashes. I think summer is all about mixing colours using prints and textures, and of course, the summer staple, a pair of cut off denim shorts. I absolutely adore these paint splattered ones. To me they look so cosmic. I’m thinking of digging out a few old pairs of jeans and going to town on them with a paint brush. Pair those with a sheer top and a lacy bralet and I’m in love. Another one of my favourite summer pairings is a slouchy tee tucked into a flowy skirt. I love all the midi styles around this year, but unfortunately they end up making me look like an 80 year old woman. Not so great. This Topshop one is the perfect length though, falling just above the knee.

I’ve also become obsessed with Aztec everything. Clothes, shoes, nails, you name it. I saw these adorable little beaded moccasins in H&M a few weeks ago, but as always, they didn’t have my size. A UK 7 shouldn’t be too hard to find, surely? Is it just me, or does anyone else think H&M could really do with investing a bit more in their footwear? I hate how they’re all dotted around the store (in my local one anyway), never more than two of each style, and always in ridiculously small sizes. Who even wears a size 3?!
