If you’ve read this post here, you’ll know that I’m on a spending ban (ok more like a spending limit) and so I can’t really buy a lot. However, that doesn’t stop me from dreaming. So here are the 12 items I would love to splurge on to prepare for the weather getting cooler.
Alright so Gucci slides aren’t really a cold weather item but these are adorable (and leather-free) so I’m still dreaming of them. Perhaps if slides are still cool for next summer I’ll treat myself to them at some point. I’ve also wanted a pair of Doc Martens for YEARS, I’m talking since high school, but for some reason though I’ve just never invested in them, and I don’t actually own a pair of flat, totally comfy boots. Now these are surprisingly the most affordable item on the list, but these Topshop mules are absolutely killer. Can’t you just picture them with a blue jeans, black shirt and a coat for a totally chic winters day out?
Another Topshop item, this jumper is from the Unique runway collection and I am so obsessed with it. I feel like it is so different from my usual style but theres something about it that I just think is awesome. The Atmos & Here cold shoulder top is the perfect way to bring the off the shoulder trend of summer into a more winter appropriate way. Love it paired with the gingham too! And yeah, I am just as Gucci obsessed as the rest of the world seems to be at the moment. At $570 for a t-shirt though, this is definitely staying in my dreams.
A few months ago I compiled the 12 Leather Free Bags I’m Lusting After and I still want all of those, but here have an extra 3! I am so in love with the designs by Stella McCartney and Love Moschino at the moment. The Stella McCartney Falabella Box Handbag would be the perfect hold all for day to day and the Love Moschino Shoulder Bag is just way too cute. The Mi-Pac backpack would also be great for throwing everything in for work.
My watch broke recently and I have been missing it like crazy! It was actually very similar to the Fossil one above but with a blush pink leather strap. Now that I don’t buy leather I’ve been after a good quality, silver watch that’s quite small so this one is perfect. I am OBSESSED with this Topshop jacket, but not only is it leather, I can’t even find it on the new Australian website so I’ve been looking for a fake leather version. This Missguided one is not nearly the same but it’s pretty cute. What I like about this one is the Gucci inspired animal designs. Speaking of gucci, here’s another item! Sorry, not sorry, I’m just in love with their current aesthetic.
If anyone feels the need to splurge on a present for me, I would be ok with that but for now I’m just going to have to sit and drool from behind my laptop at all these items.
Thanks for reading!
