The sun is shining, I repeat the sun is shining and this week’s Want It Wednesday is all about the summer – yes I’m completely aware that this week of heat could be all we have but I’m excited nonetheless.
Kicking us off is this striped ruffle dress by Mango, I’d like to say that with summer comes dresses but the truth is that I’m a big fan of dresses all year round and the warm weather allows me to widen my scope when it comes to shopping for dresses. The classic combo of white and light blue screams relaxed summer vibes and the ruffles add just enough luxe to this otherwise understated outfit in one.
It’s important to remember that your skin needs love all year round and a recent trip to Chanel’s beauty counter introduced me to the AMAZING Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Crème – it contains camellia micro droplets preserving the extract in its purest forma and it didn’t disappoint, I could feel a noticeable difference on my skin all day, can you tell that I’m 90% of the way to convincing myself that I need to buy this!
Once you’ve shown your skin some Chanel love it’s time to show it off with Huda Beauty 3D Highlight Palette – the oh so anticipated secret to a perfectly highlighted face has finally launched and I’m so excited for another product to be added to Huda’s collection. The pigments are insane and the queen herself of highlighted to perfection skin is the one to go to for flawless summer skin.
You don’t need to be down with the kids to recognise that sliders and statement tees are enjoying a popularity unseen since the 90s and my view is if you’re going to try to keep up with the young and their street style then you’ve got to big or go home. By big I mean Gucci and their washed t-shirt with Gucci print. Yes it’s ridiculously expensive (the first thing I did when seeing it cost £285 if mentally calculate how many weekly shops that equated to!)
Talking of trends and back to the reality of high street fashion, River Island are on fire this season with translating catwalk trends into wearable and just importantly affordable pieces. I am absolutely in love with this White Long Sleeve Embroidered Top – the detailing is insane and at less than half price I’m adding it to my basket as we speak, No sooner had I fallen in love with the top did I spot the River Island Pom Pom Sliders, come one just the name tells you they’re everything – finally a pair of sliders that don’t scream white sock, ha!
They say make hay while the sun shines but I prefer to shop shop for weather appropriate fashion…
