First up is a classic camel trench coat. This type of coat is something that comes back into style every year around this time and it looks just as good over jeans and a top as it does over your favourite summer dresses. I’ve ummed and ahhed over buying a trench coat for ages and I think this year I’ll take the plunge. Aquascutum has some incredible options. These types of purchases are pricey, but I prefer a wardrobe that’s made up of quality, timeless pieces and this coat fits the bill. It’s an investment piece for sure, but it’s the perfect transitional wardrobe staple for spring.
Next up is the ultimate summer dress. You know the one that you can wear to almost anything that you can’t wait to show off. This is it! Layer it with a cosy cardigan and style it with suede knee-high boots when the weather is a little cooler or wear it alone during the summer months. Going away somewhere fabulous? Have an abroad wedding? This is the dress you need in your life. I’m obsessed with Zimmermann and it’s a label I’m going to add to my repertoire this season. I may just have to remortgage my house to do so.
My nude Valentino courts didn’t survive my last trip to the races (always wear heel stoppers ladies) so I’m looking for a replacement. These Jimmy Choo courts are in the shade ballet pink and they’ll go with pretty much everything.
Speaking of footwear, I’ve also got my eye on the Chloe Susanna studded ankle boot (although Topshop does a pretty great dupe) but I don’t have the best luck with footwear especially pastel pink suede. Every blogger in the world has these but I can feel myself being lured in. Perhaps a really really early birthday present?
Ok, on to day bags. I want one that is versatile, not back-breakingly large but still substantial to carry the weight of my many many essentials. Also delicate enough to wear with summer dresses on holiday but not ultra girly. I don’t ask for much, do I? This one is by Mansur Gavriel. Look at the bow detail. SOLD.
