I am without doubt the kind of neurotic person who writes a list about the things they want, in fact I actually start to feel a bit anxious when I haven't got a list of things I want! If I just go shopping without anything in mind I completely fall apart and just buy everything, so it's probably for the best really that I have these lists! At the moment I am completely in love with everything in Topshop, which is why I decided to make Februarys Wishlist 100% Topshop! I don't know whether it's the time of year or whether the Bristol Topshop just has fantastic Visual Merchandisers, but either way the past few times i've been in there I seem to want everything in the window or on the inside mannequins.
1- Red Lace Crop Top - £15. This seems like a real Summer staple, it comes in several colours and is the type of essential you could wear with high waisted skirts, disco pants, and underneath pinafores. At only £15 i'm definitely going to get one just not 100% certain of which colour yet.
2- Denim Pinafore Dress - £38. This is my current number one. I bought the black crepe pinafore and totally fell in love with the style and the shape, and this denim one seems like the kind of thing I will live in during the summer. I can think of a million different ways to wear it; with shirts, crop tops, jumpers, black, white, or with just a bikini underneath on holiday. I need to take it to Glastonbury and am just too excited about it for words!
3- Cream Lace Collar Top - £16. Another summer staple, an item you can wear with lots of high waisted skirt, shorts or jeans. A great price and just something that i'll wear constantly. It also comes in several other colours, the difficulty is picking which one!
4- Bonded Short Parka - £65. I saw this in store the other day and loved it straight away, it's a great Summer jacket, especially as I wear my big Winter parka constantly in the cold so thought this could be a great alternative for warmer nights. I like the navy colour with the grey underneath, but I do think it is far too expensive, its should be £45.
5- Dip Dye Oversized Tee - £20. I have already bought this item, but wanted to include it in the wishlist because it's only been mine for less than 24 hours! I really like wearing oversized tees with my AA shiny leggings, it will also look great with denim shorts or jeans. Dip Dye is a big trend and this is quite a casual way of wearing it due to the neutral colours.
6- MILL Toe Cap Slippers - £26. How cute are these shoes! I do love a good black flat shoe and tend to live in patent black loafers, but I like how these are a basic shoe which will go with everything yet have the added detail of the patent toe.
7- Lace Collar Playsuit - £50. This is quite possibly the most beautiful item of clothing I have ever laid eyes on! I saw it in store and it is just amazing! It feels like it's really good quality, and I just love the lace shoulders. It's something I can imagine myself wearing a lot as it's quite a simple item with an extra detail, something I tend to go for a lot. Although it is the best playsuit i've seen, it is quite expensive and I will need to have a think about whether I can justify it!
What do you guys think of these picks, do you have any of them that you can recommend?
In other news yesterday I joined and gym and went for a 45 minute work out, it was quite hard but I really enjoyed it. As some of you know I have hypothyroidism which tends to leave me feeling very tired and lethargic, but i'm hoping that regular gym exercise will help to boost my energy levels and make me feel a bit better.
