Wednesday Wishing: Easter Special

Happy Wednesday all and Happy Easter in advance for this weekend! I hope you and your families have a lovely weekend and make the most of the first of the bank holiday Mondays. Enjoy the Wish List this week, I've gone for an Easter theme with sugary colours and sweet details so treat yourself, less calories than chocolate!

1. First up this week is this fairytale lemon dress from Monsoon. There's a touch of the ballerina about this dress and it would look lovely at a bank holiday wedding or formal garden party. Sweet and girly, wear with feminine accessories. Monsoon, £75.

2. Pleats are the key detail this season and can be worn on tops as well as skirts, just take this Topshop top for example. Love the sugary colour, a great top to dress up or down depending on your bank holiday plans. Topshop, £34.

3. Fringing is a prevalent detail on bags this season and the soft cream shade of this Aldo bag takes the Navajo look out of the equation and makes it a soft, versatile accessory. Aldo, £36.

4. Now a white skirt may scare a few of you but never fear, this is a highly wearable look if done right. Tuck in a top in another light shade and don't over accessorise, a subtle bangle or a delicate necklace will do. Miss Selfridge, £36.

5. Last up is the most sugary item on my list, these baby pink silk shorts from Topshop Boutique. A great way to wear shorts in the heat, the material is light and is perfect for the Sports Luxe look. Topshop Boutique, £40.

Brighten Up

Apologies for the lack of blog entries recently, in particular the absence of last week's Wednesday Wish List. I've been a lazy blogger recently but am looking to do better in the coming months. Have been to a fair few exciting press events recently and am starting to see AW11 collections on the high street, trust me there is a lot to look forward to!

But putting the thought of Winter clothing aside for now and focusing on the present, how amazing is the weather?! The sun in London has been lovely today, definitely a mood brightener and the perfect opportunity to wear some bright outfits. So with all that in mind, I bring you a round-up of the best colour block shoes in stores now that you NEED to buy asap. Think of it as owing it the good weather!

Blue and coral platform sandals, Miss Selfridge, £50

Cream and orange wedges, Topshop, £70

Red, pink and cork wedges, Carvela at Kurt Geiger, £140

Yellow and beige wedges, Aldo, £80

Purple platform heels, Carvela at Kurt Geiger, £140

Raffia and green platform sandals, ASOS, £50

If you only buy one pair of colour block shoes this season then snap up these Primark beauties for just £14! Also comes in pink, get them before they sell out.

More Wednesday Wishing

Happy Wednesday to you all, hope the weather is as good where you are as it is in London! I'm dusting off my Summer clothes (yes it's only April but why not!) and digging out my shades, even if the good weather only lasts for the rest of this week.

1. Starting us off this week is THE outfit I want to be wearing when Summer really kicks in - this beautiful mint green jumpsuit from Dorothy Perkins, £55. Also comes in blue but I think this minty shade would look perfect in the sun with a sunkissed glow and some sandals.

2. Continuing with the pastel theme, I bring you these baby blue Nike hi-tops. Sports luxe is having a bit of a fashion moment and I am seriously considering investing in a pair, perfect partner to jeans, a t-shirt and Ray Bans on a relaxed day in the sun. £81.99 at Office.

3. Pretty accessories have been catching my eye recently, one of which being this yellow gingham hairband from Topshop, £7. Would look very D&G-chic paired with a denim playsuit and perfectly disguises a bad hair day.

4. Aldo are well known for their lovely shoes but not so much for their accessories so I feel its only fair for me to put this right! They have a great selection of handbags online and in store now, my favourite being this tan fold over clutch with eye-catching floral detail. Snap it up for £36.

5. Last item up this week comes from one of my favourite SS collections: Miu Miu. Loved the neon shades paired with black but particularly loved the star detail on bags, shoes and other accessories. This star belt is probably the most affordable of the range, tie it round colour block shift dresses for most impact. £175 at Net-a-Porter.
