FM40 STYLE | MY A/W 2015 WISHLIST
I love the change over in seasons, sorting your wardrobe out and deciding what hits the charity bag, what goes on eBay and then looking at the holes (quite literally sometimes in your jumpers) left and deciding what you need to fill those holes and then the whole other ball game of what you would really like..... more things hit my eBay pile.
Again, I am going to try and stick to my new year resolution of trying to buy less and invest in things only that I really love.
I have a small list of requirements, it must be warm, it must have a hood and it must cover my bum and keep me warm in all weathers, dog walking along a beach in the North West of England. I have been researching this all summer, call me crazy, but I don't want to make a mistake. My favourite is the Woolrich Arctic Parka, if it is good enough for Olivia Palermo to walk her dog in wintry NYC then I think it's a safe bet.
This is something that I would like rather than I need and I may have to do a little ebaying to fund this. I enjoyed wearing my Isabel Marant Glenn jacket so much this summer, having big boobs, a well cut jacket can have a slimming effect. I adore Clara from the old working girl blog on Instagram still and she has this jacket in grey ......simply I am a #copycat.
This was on my summer wish, but I never got around to purchasing it. Plus, they are quite thick and far more suitable for autumn/winter.
Hands down my favourite skinny jeans. My dark pair that I have had for about 2 years have faded on the knees slightly, too much kneeling with little ones, so a new pair is required. I also quite like them in black cord. Isabel Marant has done some skinny cords this autumn, but £42 I think I will opt for the Topshop ones.
Michelle from Myfashionable40s rocked these last winter and looked totally cool in them and I am tempted to try a pair after loving my white low tops.
I have longed for this jumper for a few years, it can be worn casually or dressed up with a lace pencil skirt. My birthday is in September, fingers crossed a few pennies or vouchers come my way to purchase one.
A new piece of cashmere each winter is a luxury I like to indulge in and the piece of cashmere that has caught my eye so far is this hooded one from Hush.
I would also like a grey long boyfriend cardigan. This very versatile piece of clothing is one I don't really own, I have an old Whistles cashmere one from when I was pregnant 6 1/2 years ago, but it has short sleeves and I tend to wear it now only over my PJ's in the winter. I will be looking to Uniqlo for this item, I really rate their cashmere for the money or again the Hush Nina Cardigan appeals due to its likeness to the Acne cardigans.
I love this brand, it has made serious waves across Instagram with Tash from Theyallhateus wearing it and one of my style crushes Louise Redknapp has the midi skirt I want. However, I am also quite taken with this drop waist style dress, perfect styled with my leather Marant jacket. The good news is that this brand is easier on the purse strings than that of Isabel Marant.
10. A PAIR OF ISABEL MARANT DICKER BOOTS
Yes, I know I have already purchased these in June in the sale (available here, now), but when I was changing over my wardrobes at the end of last winter, I made a mental note that I wanted them for this winter. Being sales savvy has allowed me to tick my first wish list item off..... yippee.
Have you noticed apart from the dickers there isn't much Isabel Marant on my list? There isn't anything I am really craving, apart from these shoes and this skirt , the shoes are out of my budget and the skirt I have nowhere really to wear it. Maybe something will catch my eye later on, I am always checking Vestiaire Collective for things that I loved from previous seasons that I regret not buying.... so we wait to see if I get any more Izzy pieces to add to my collection. But, then again the Fiona Skirt from hush may satisfy my addiction.
What do you think of my wish list? It is seriously lacking some colour, maybe I might indulge in what appears to be the colour of the season berry, with a little cheeky high street number. Do you know what you would like this autumn/winter?
