This year, I’ve promised to step out of my comfort zone and embrace the Spring Summer with open arms with regards to my wardrobe. I always automatically opt for dark colours, but these are the first few pieces online that I’ve decided would belong in my wardrobe and not in a stuffy warehouse. I really like the icy blue of the Topshop sheer shirt: it’d make a welcome change from that peachy/nude one that I’m forever wearing. The other tunic from Topshop is covered in the sweetest, subtle polka dot pattern which I love, and would wear with my RI jeans, and the black (I cheated) sheer, longline shirt from River Island will look amazing with a bralet, leggings and a boyish jacket. Need the Yesstyle shorts and Ever Ours tunic in my wardrobe ASAP as well.
The new Harriet collection at Mulberry is absolutely perfect, and this clutch is no exception. I think I’m falling out of love with the repetitive satchel shape, which is why the Harriet clutch and leather totes stood out to me a little more! Depending on how well my dissertation progress goes – you all know that I work on a word count reward basis – I might treat myself to some new nail colours for the new season, and a Tangle Teezer to sort out my hair. Beauty bloggers, coughcough Corrie!, are too persuasive for their own good!
Finally, I’m probably going to spend some of my Waterstones points on this novel by Haruki Murakami. It sounds completely different from what I like to read, which are classics, historical literature and fantasy/manga for the record, but I did say I wanted to explore new books this year! Any book recommendations for me while we’re here?
