Wish List – New Summer Wardrobe

It’s finally summer again!

I LOVE the autumn/winter months soooooo much! I can’t find anything that makes me more happy than wearing woolly clothes, hats, scarves, having to make no excuses for indulging in a soya hot chocolate, but the last few months I have been really pining for the sun! The feeling of warmth on my skin, that amazing blue coloured sky, free of clouds and full of light, I feel like its been forever since it was warm!

But finally its here and the past few weeks especially have been so lovely. I even bought and wore a pair of shorts to the beach! I haven’t worn shorts in years! But I recently started a new job in a bakery which is a drastic difference from the sit down office job I had been doing for the last 5 years so needless to say I’ve found myself loosing quite a few lbs with all the running around and lifting and bending I’m now doing so nothing I own fits me anymore! Tragic I know! Especially when, with the wedding to pay for, (8 weeks tomorrow!!!!) and Canada to save for, I find myself with very, VERY little disposable income. But I’m creative enough so I am giving myself the challenge of trying to find my wish list items from charity shops, thrift stores or I’m even going to see if I could maybe make something! But enough of that for now, here are my ‘New Summer Wardrobe’ wish list items ❤

Foxgloves and Birds Skater Dress by Apricot


 Tan Multi Strap Ankle Boots


A staple for my dream summer wardrobe this year would have to be a cute floral Skater styledress, one that I could sinch in at the waist with a thin belt, and a pair of Ankle boots. I just think this outfit would look so cute! Coupled with a pair of tights on colder days or bare legged on warm ones. Yes. Definitely a must have look for me.

New York Vest Top


Cream Knitted Kimono Cardigan


Ripped Boyfriend Jeans


Black Chunky Ankle Strap Sandles


I love this outfit as a casual, running errands type outfit. I don’t know why but I am just LOVING this ugly sandle trend! I find it so crazy how much I find myself really wanting a pair and I think my mam finds it even stranger after the years of ribbing I gave her about hers! But yeah. I’m totally feeling it. I also love matching t-shirts and jeans with Chunky cardigans in the summer instead of taking a coat out with me. They’re just so much easier to wear or carry around with you as the weather is so unpredictable, I hate being caught out without a coat or something for if the weather turns.

All of these items can be found at NewLook (the titles are hyperlinked so you can click on them to take you directly to the page to buy them!!)

I’m loving NewLook at the moment. I find their prices very, very fair, their quality very good and their selection varied. They’re great for my budget and I’m always finding something from them to suit my wants and needs!

So that concludes my little wish list for now. It’s certainly not everything on my list but these two outfits are on the top of my ‘to get’ list. If there is anyone reading this, feel free to let me know what your summer wardrobe wish list contains!

Here’s Laura!


Well it has been a while! Honestly life for me has been so crazy since my last post. A lot of ups and downs and I just needed to focus my attention on other things going on in my life which meant my little blog had to take a back seat :0(

But I’m back! Life is still very crazy but I feel I’m in a bit of a better place now to pick this back up. I’m aiming to update once a month. I would love to do more and if I can I will but I need to ease back into things here and I think once a month is a good amount of time to allocate myself so I don’t feel so overwhelmed and to make sure I keep it up as I love writing this blog (even though I know not many people read it) but this is my space. Here I can write what ever I like about whatever fickle fixation I’m obsessed with at any point in time and I like that. I like to write and share my passions even if it is to just one or two people. So this is the beginning….again….I hope you enjoy.

A little update
Things that have been going on since my last post:
– I started my textiles degree (you can follow my progress and coursework on my learning log at www.mytextileslearninglog.wordpress.com
– I got made redundant and got a new job in a bakery
– I dyed my hair from blonde to brown, regretted it immediately so got it out back to blonde, then just today got it dyed to a brown/blonde ombre type thing
– After 8 1/2 years, me and Tom set a date for our wedding! Were getting married August 12th 2015. 59 days!!!!
– The reason were getting married so soon is because we have decided to move to Canada!

Yes you read that right. Canada! I know you’re just dying to know why so I promise to make a post about why, how, our progress etc. very soon! I need a bit of prep before I just dive straight into it.

So yeah. Life is pretty crazy at the moment but its so exciting too!! So many good things happening in the next 12 months and I’m happy I have this space to document them!
