A Transitional Wishlist

From Left to Right: Espirit leo print ankle boot with strap, EOS strawberry sorbet lip balm,  Espirit colour block blouse in flowing viscose, Espirit boxy T-shirt ,Espirit lyocell shirt dress with a belt, Olivia Burton Ladies ‘woodland’ moulded bee watch, Espirit Vintage Look Stretch Jeans,Espirit imitation leather bucket bag, Espirit Textured Dress in 100% cotton, Ray-Ban Havana foldable square sunglasses rb2176, Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, NCLA Nudes Volume 1

If you're anything like me, you'll be forever dressing inappropriately for the weather, and this is made infinitely harder by being in that awkward transition between winter and spring. What even is that? I think it needs a name. Anyway, I put together a little wishlist of items that I think would fit perfectly for this kind of weather. The first being these awesome leopard print boots from Espirit. I've recently become a fan of leopard print (in small doses) and the fact that these are all black makes it more of a minimal statement, and I think they would transfer easily through to summer as I can definitely picture them with some high wasted denim shorts and my sleeveless Ramone's top.
 Lip balm is a must at this time of year with the constant changes in the weather and anything that's called 'strawberry sorbet' pretty much has my vote. So there's that.
As always, you can't go wrong with a stripey tee and I'm yet to really try the 'boyfriend jean' trend but it looks so awesome on other people. I think that spring is a time for relaxed dressing and what's more relaxed than baggy jeans and a classic tee? Oh, and Ray-Bans.. a must.. right?
I've been after the perfect watch for what feels like a million years and this one from Olivia Burton is just SO lovely. The moulded bee makes it that little bit more spring worthy, as I just love it when you start to see all of the bumble bees and flowers, but it's not so much of a 'spring statement' that it wouldn't be wearable all year round. I'm definitely going to be needing to get my hands on this.
As you can see, I didn't actually go for any jackets as I'm kind of edging towards the idea that pretty soon we won't be needing them. If you think that's unrealistic, I did at one point actually have a bikini on this wishlist but thought that we weren't quite there yet! Still.. one can dream right?
Something I'm really into right now is the bucket bag. I've always been one of those people that just chucks everything into a bag and has to frantically fumble for about ten minutes whilst trying to find my house keys (I'm usually desperate for the toilet at this point too.. tmi?) but that's okay.. and in this situation I fully embrace that fact. This imitation leather one is perfect for this kind of weather, and will be perfect come summer time too. It's just so easy to style with so many different outfits and perfect for all seasons too.
When it comes to beauty, I'm still yet to go over to the NARS side but I'm certainly tempted by a bit of a 'sheer glow' for the face. It seems that I may as well welcome my natural 'dewy' complexion as it's coming to that time of year again where it's actually something that people want, so why not enhance that a little? I've also been eyeing up all of the new NCLA polishes that have launched for S/S 15. Their nudes collection is basically the dream and the polishes are lovely to work with. I'll take them all please!

How are you dressing for the transitional weather?
Any tips for a girl that keeps getting it wrong?




  1. I am in love with that bucket bag. I have no tips for you! I keep wearing my black winter coat with fur lining every day, so that's definitely not very transitional!
