Love at first sight

I’ve actually been super good at the whole ‘not-going-into-shops-and-dropping-cash-then-and-there’ thing, recently. That doesn’t exactly stop me going into shops and instantly falling in love with some of the stuff available this season, though. It’s tragic, but my finances have been allocated ‘elsewhere’ in the coming months (oooh exciting), and so there is not much for me to splash out without a pretty hefty discount. Doesn’t stop a girl from wishing though, does it. 

spring wishlist || new look topshop river island

river island white square geo placement print shorts  – £30
river island pink split design tote bag – £40

new look black box zip top metal trim backpack  – £22.99
new look pink watermelon zip top purse  – £3.99
new look orange zip top purse  – £3.99

topshop crochet floppy hat £22
topshop striped pinafore front sundress£46

Admittedly, most of these do not look their best on a website layout. BUT they’re super cute instore, I promise! As it’s now spring (ish, touch wood), I’m ~trying~ to inject some more colour into my wardrobe, and I think these pieces do that pretty effectively. Also I am not usually a bag girl, at all, but something about owning ALL THE BAGS appeals to me right now.

What do you think of these items? Have you had any instances where you’ve seen something and instantly fell in love??? Let me know! And I hope you’ve all had a super fab weekend ~

    You know what they say, first you have to want something, than visualise it and then you'll get it! So you are on a right path! Love the prints of that bag and skirt!

    I was so close to buying those shorts the other day – no joke. Seriously contemplating forking out the money and just denying myself make-up for a month…Chantel Dione: fashion, beauty, music & lifexo

    The black New Look backpack is totally you! I can see you wearing it all summer long 🙂 Oh an item I fell in love instantly…hm…would probably be a pair of Valentino studded flats (which are too expensive for me). If only the High Street would produce some affordable dupes. Hope you're well and we'll speak soon. Happy weekend xxxCaz | Style Lingua
