Wishful Spring thinking

Sunglasses: mimco// wedges: boohoo// hat: sportsgirl// satchel & heels: modcloth// rainbow & nautical dress: loveclothing // white stripe dress: ASOS

I am finding it really hard to resist all the sales that are currently taking place on northern hemisphere websites. It just seems to make sense to buy summer stuff now that it’s on sale as were only a skip, hop and a jump away from Spring.
Nearly everything in this collage is on sale but I am staying strong and trying to wait to spend my money when I am actually in the US.  This Spring I want to be surrounded by bright colours, florals and stripes. The weather is actually forecasted to be in the late teens for the next week so it actually already feels as though Spring is in the air.
This weekend I am heading to Sydney to stay with my sister and go to Mary Poppins on Saturday night for my mum’s birthday. I think a weekend away is exactly what the doctor ordered – what are you up to this weekend?
Oh and a quick ps – apparently people haven’t been able to comment on my blog lately but hopefully the problem is now resolved.


  1. Oh boy..trying to save your dollars and not spend them before vacation is the hardest part! I always find myself wanting to be "vacation clothes"...which sounds great, but usually leaves me with no money in my account come vacation time!

    Those dresses are so cute--so I can see your dilemma! :)

  2. I love that red sunhat.

    Have a lovely time in Sydney! Enjoy Mary Poppins- what fun!

  3. I love that blue and white striped dress! I'm obsessed with the nautical themed stuff that's out at the moment. I'm struggling to stay away from stores too. I see all the sales and get excited ... and then remember I'm poor, haha.

    I went on a bit of a shopping spree today. And I want to buy so much on the websites too.

  5. Ooh I certainly love your wishlist!
