Greeting my fellow wanters and welcome to this week’s Want It Wednesday – let’s get started on what’s caught my eye this week…
It’s no secret that I’ve taken to slider life like a teenager to mood swings, I keep trying to pair my black adidas adilette slides in black with every single outfit, but my street style knows no bounds as I want to add the red ones to my collection – plus I’m hoping by next year Boo’s feet will be big enough to wear a matching pair.
Hopping over forms street style to floral with the yellow floral print shorts form New Look – they remind me of so many pairs of shorts from when I was younger in the nineties and it’s great to see the grunge festival vibe back with a bang. Plus they look like they may withstand the delights that are British summer gales!
Ignoring the clouds and rain of this week are these oh so Rosie round-frame metal sunglasses by Gucci – I love their fun yet uber chic vibe and they remind us that sunglasses as good as these are for life and not just for British summers 😉
As I come to the realisation that I have aged fifteen years in the past six (parenting is hard and the equivalent of a youth sucking ghoul) maintaining a great skincare routine; micellar water isn’t a brand new concept in the British market, however it’s long been a face care staple in France and Bioderma is the brand that is industry leading and for me it’s a sign I should try it.
Floaty versatile shirts are the name of the game with this unpredictable weather and the many hats I have to wear throughout the day. From school run to heading into the city for work I want to look and feel my best. The baby blue tones of the Nuru Schiffley Striped Peplum Shirt by French Connection give the nearly always bland office shirt a feminine twist with knobs on.
I’m a fan of clean stripes (see above the never ending appreciation of Adidas stripes!) this cotton dress by Mango is perfect for satisfying one of my long standing style obsessions and at nearly 50% off it would seem silly to not add to my growing collection.
If there’s one shoe that symbolises the style offering of SS17 it would have to be heeled mule. For me it’s the perfect fusion of seventies and nineties fashion that is super wearable plus the heel high doesn’t tend to be ridiculously high so I have a chance of wearing them for more than eight minutes! I tend to favour the cinderella-esque bling as opposed to the boho look and it doesn’t get better than the Jimmy Choo Myla 35 – ballet pink satin mule with crystal piece – words that cannot fail to bring a smile to my face; because why shouldn’t I feel like Cinderella when I’m running for the 8.51 to London Bridge!
