August Wish List

I can't believe it's August already, seriously how fast is this summer going? It’ll be Christmas before we know it (yay)… Anyways, with a new month comes a brand new list of things that I am 'wishing' for. August is one of my favourite months because the A/W lines start to appear in stores. So, I do get rather excited/dangerously close to buying everything in the store when this happens (only joking...). These are the items that have made my August wish list:

Zara-Striped Dress- £39.99

I love Zara this month. Okay,  I love Zara every month, but there’s just something extra special about the new collection. The first item on my wishlist is this striped dress. I love how simple and understated it is. I adore the cut of this dress; it’s right on trend. It’s just the epitome of Zara: sophisticated simplicity. 

Zara- Loose-Fit Trench Coat-£79.99

How gorgeous is this loose-fit trench coat from Zara? I’ve previously mentioned how much I love the Autumn/Winter season. But seriously, A/W trends are amazing and this coat is no exception. I think I may be in love with it. I love the tailoring trend and the trench coat is the perfect way to be effortlessly chic. It’s the detailing on this coat that makes it so incredible- the over-sized cut and the shirt-style collar.  I love the stone colour, too. My coats are usually in black and I just think this would make a refreshing change. I definitely think this is the perfect coat for the transition from summer to autumn. 

Zara- Crepe Blazer- £49.99

Okay, so yet another item from Zara (what a surprise, I really should have just called this post my Zara wish list!). As I’ve said like a million times (slight exaggeration) I love the tailoring trend. So, I am lusting over this blazer. A simple yet elegant black blazer is an absolute must-have in my wardrobe. It goes with anything and just adds so much to an outfit. Again, like all Zara clothes, it is the cut of this blazer that makes it stand out. I love that the sleeves are long but the blazer itself is slightly cropped, cut just below the waist. It’s these small but effective details that really make the difference.
Topshop- KLARA Snaffle Loafers- £58.00

Now onto Topshop… I love the look of these loafers. The colour is really unique and the snaffle detail is so cute.  They are versatile and would add the perfect pop of colour to any outfit. 

Jo Malone™ Wild Fig & Cassis Home Candle- £40

I love candles. I actually have a slight obsession with them. I’ve always wanted a Jo Malone candle and after smelling the Wild Fig and Cassis candle- I now really want one. It smells absolutely amazing- a gorgeous, indulgent and relaxing smell. It reminds me of Christmas (you can tell I'm in a really wintery mood already!). I love the packaging of Jo Malone candles, so elegant. I think I might just have to treat myself to this beautiful candle.

What are you loving this August?
