An autumnal mini-wishlist

17.10.14

Remember a time when my wishlists were of epic proportions?  Well no more, my friends!

Shopping is no longer a weekend-ly ritual.  In fact, I ventured into my local Topshop this weekend and stood, struck by how much I didn't want to buy anything.  Life is cluttered enough as it is, without my wardrobe being equally as overflowing!

That said, there are certain things I just can't say no to.  Like a new (p)leather jacket.  I don't think I've updated my jacket stash in at least 18 months and I fell in love with this buttery soft Zara offering.  Listed above is its Sheinside equivalent.  I'm torn - it's £35 cheaper, but will it be as soft??

With a £25 Whistles voucher burning a hole in my pocket, this lilac Rivington Chain Pouch is looking more and more like a possibility.  £50 is still expensive, but I'm telling myself it'll be an investment and fit in with the sleeker, more minimalistic wardrobe I'm trying to cultivate.

I have three pairs of taupe ankle boots sitting upstairs, but none of them are peep toe with cut-out ankle detail.  As I write that I realise how impractical and unnecessary they are for the upcoming 6 months of winter that we're bound to have, but look how pretty these ones from Miss Guided are!  I hate the inevitable stains that these sorts of boots get, so for now I think they'll stay as something to lust after.

To finish, something much less expensive and a whole lot more guilt-free... a lipstick!  I already own a L'Oreal Collection Privee nude lipstick and love its smooth parma violet-scented formula.  The release of a reds collection has got me all excited, and I think that when I do finally get round to buying one I'll step away from the norm and go for a pink-toned red instead.  Orangey-reds are usually my thing, but I'm intrigued to see how Julianne's Pure Red will look in real life.

Is there anything on your wishlist at the moment?
