Birthday Wish List

 So the countdown has begun.. In one week exactly I will be the grand old age of 24 and still feel as hopeless as a two year old. Help me? The one thing that I'm not dreading about this birthday however, is the opportunity to treat myself on some '24 year old worthy' clothes. (Note: This may not be a thing and may just have been something I've made up to make it okay to spend all of of the pounds on beautiful items for myself without any guilt but that's okay.)
Over the last year or so, I've found that I'm more interested in investing in timeless high quality pieces, rather than having to repurchase ALL of my shoes at the same time because the sole has disappeared on every single one of them. Don't get me wrong here, I'm still all about the bargains and high street prices but, sometimes, it just feels good to get that real leather jacket.. that you know will last your life.. am I right?
I've created this wishlist in collaboration with Avenue 32 and am hoping that some of the fam pop by for some birthday present related inspo as I'm basically in love with everything on this wish list post. It was important to me to create a wearable outfit, and to pick things that are really versatile. I've found that where I used to buy one random item that didn't go with anything else in my wardrobe, I've now taken to buying with outfits and style ideas in mind.. Maybe I am growing up after all? Whilst browsing lustfully through Avenue 32, I came across the designer BLK DNM and basically fell in love. Black leather jackets, effortlessly flowing tee's, suede, and a bit of ribbed knee action...The clothing just screams out to my inner 'rock goddess' and makes me think I should buy everything they offer and then ride off into the sunset on a motorbike with a guitar strapped to my back.
 I've been after the perfect leather jacked for what feels like a lifetime,and when browsing the web, I opted for the cropped version instead of the full length. It was a tough decision, but I just think that it's super flattering, and let's be honest. It's just cool, isn't it? I was also significantly won over by the suede jacket so y'know, I wouldn't say no to either (or both). I swatched the CT blush on a recent trip into town and just feel like it would bring a perfect pop of colour to an otherwise monochrome outfit, and don't even get me started on those AW boots: Swoon.

 Do you like this style of post? I'm always adding to my lust lists over on pinterest so it would be easy for me to blog them if you like it!
