For Christmas this year, I was kindly bestowed with a Topshop voucher as one of my gifts; always a much welcome present in my eyes, due to my sheer inability to make suggestions for presents to my family. In despair, and if all else fails, credit in Topshop is very likely to make me beam with anticipation and thankfulness.
So I thought I would scour their site and earmark some certain pieces I would very much like to purchase in the coming weeks. I have held off spending my vouchers yet as the words “carnage” and “sale” best represent my local store at the moment. Sale racks are great and I have actually sampled some hidden gems amongst the odd-sized bikinis and buttonless shirts, but I am holding out for the season’s fresh stock to be exposed, and then I can really be let lose. In the meantime, I have satiated my shopping urge and concocted a visual prompt to best illustrate the items and styles I am harbouring after this season. Key colours I am yearning for: rusty browns and burnt oranges, creams, camel and navy with a hint of print and a glimmer of gold.
From left to right, top to bottom:
★ Cream Butterfly Print Fluted One Sleeve Dress £50: I saw this a while ago and love the floaty femininity of the piece.
★ Knitted Apricot Cotton Cable Jumper £38: I am severely lacking in the knitwear department and am always cold, hence the need for some warmth and cable knit in my life.
★ Leaf Wrap Ring £5: I could quite contently indulge in all of Topshop’s rings. They are awesome, but I particularly like this one. I’d wear it on my little finger.
★ Whipstitch Aztec Blanket Cape £38: Simply stunning. I love capes and the Mayan-inspired design is gorgeous.
★ Tiered Peterpan Blouse £36: I was first attracted to the bold mustard hue of this blouse, and the tiered detailing is lovely too. This is my must-have.
★ Ashanti Taupe Shearling Ankle Boots £95: I haven’t yet toyed with any shearling in my wardrobe, but these boots are just perfect.
★ Matelot Co-ord Shorts £35: I find high-waisted shorts are very flattering on my figure and I love how I could dress these up or down, dependant on the occasion, with tucked in tees or fancy heels.
★ Petite Toffee Lace Panel Smock £40: I am attracted like a magpie to anything lace-detailed, and the colour of this smock is really unique.
★ Rust Faux Fur Pom Pom Cable Knit Headband £12: Just wonderful and completely necessary.
★ Cream Faux Fur Gilet £65: I think I may be jumping on this bandwagon a little too late in the season, but I really want a fur gilet and I am positive our UK weather will allow me a few more months to revel in this winter warmer.
★ Sail Boat Brooch £8.50: Reminded me of Jennie.
★ Snake Print Waterfall Blouse £50: Maybe a bit Bet Lynch ?
★ Brick Crepe Fold Over Hareem Trousers £38: These structured hareems will be perfect with my brogues and the peterpan blouse. Another absolute must.
So there we have it. I really enjoyed constructing this post, if only for my visual pleasure.
Which are your favourite pieces?
