Hello lovelies! First of all, apologies for the lack of outfit posts last week; I don't want to go into too much detail but I've had a bit of a rough patch going on in my personal life to do with my health and because of that shooting blog photos had to take a backseat. However regular programming should return later on this week so stay with me - I'm still here! Secondly, can we believe it's already May?! I feel like Christmas was only yesterday but it's almost been half a year, how insane. There's a definitive summery vibe to this month's wishlist, possibly spurred on in part by the gorgeous sunny weather England has had and also because I've finally started planning this year's holiday! We want to try and travel mainland Europe and see as many countries as we can within ten days to a week, so if anyone has any experience or tips in doing this kind of holiday then let me know.
No summer wishlist can be complete without some sort of swimwear and I've been lusting after this Minga London bathing suit since last year, it's so cute and sassy and could even be worn as a bodysuit with shorts or a skirt which I love! There's definitely a bit of theme going on here with mermaid inspired pieces - I recently discovered the brand Valfre via Instagram which is an LA based label who make amazing sassy clothing, accessories and art which quite often pay homage to everyone's favourite kind of undersea siren. I'm totally and utterly obsessed with everything on the site but this shell phone case and the pink satin mermaid bomber are my favourites I think. Another US brand that I've recently found out about and L-O-V-E is Colourpop Cosmetics, whose gorgeous selection of lip colours need no introduction on the blogosphere. Unfortunately you can't get them here in the UK *sob* but a girl can dream - if they ever expand overseas, you'd better believe I'm grabbing Tootsi. Now you all know my love for Lazy Oaf by now but I had to feature another of their recent drops on this wishlist - how cute is this tee? Perfect for wearing when you're not in the mood to be dealing with life, but still want to look super sassy. Backpacks are my favourite kind of bag by far and I'm building up quite a collection of cute ones, however I've been looking out for a baby pink number to add to it; there's a huge range out there at the moment but I love the Japanese street style/kawaii vibes of this Dreamer backpack.
What do you think of this month's wishlist? What items have you been lusting after this month? I'd love to know!
