Wishlist | How to be Parisian



So it's that time of month again, payday slowly looming which means the mental wishlist is rapidly increasing. After reading #girlboss I now feel more inclined to try and save my money as opposed to wearing it, but that doesn't mean i can't still lust after everything. Parisian has always been my favourite trend to style and it seems everything i have popped together fits within that category. I love my Olivia Burton paisley watch Liam bought me for my birthday last year, however I didn't expect the dial to be quite so small. Luckily OB do a range with larger faces and the winter floral design is stunning. It would be a great accessory to go with white bohemian pieces when the sun is shining, don't you think?

I'm starting to dream of a summer holiday on an almost hourly basis, I am seriously regretting not booking one earlier in the year. There is still potential of a trip away to constant sunshine, sandy beaches and cocktails on tap and what better than a new summer fragrance? Esteé Lauder bronzed goddess is described by some as essentially being 'holiday' compressed into a bottle. The only positive would be if I did buy the perfume but didn't get the holiday at least I can pretend I'm away by drowning myself in the scent... Every cloud (I say whilst crying into my bikinis)? Even though I'm preparing for warmer weather, that's not to say I don't need another coat. I already have a paler pink coat but this beauty I've found on mango (the link is an alternative as it since has sold out) would just be the cheese to my cracker; the cracker being the breton t-shirt to the right. A steal at £22 I think I will be definitely buying as I think it'll be perfect with denim shorts, white midi skirts, skinny jeans or even dungarees. The possibilities of combinations are endless.

Finally, with Coachella looming in the background of everyone's mind who isn't there what better that to add a couple of boho inspired fringed pieces. The boots aren't going to be everyone's cup of tea but to me they are an absolute staple piece. Paired with bare legs and summer dresses,  it would look amazing. Festival inspired pieces are my favourite go-to looks over summer. What do you think of my picks come payday? Let me know!


  1. I looked at that wish list, nodding my head the entire time! No matter how warm it gets my coat obsession will still remain...after all, we live in the UK with such temperamental weather that you have to be prepared for anything! I love the stripe tee and agree that the Parisian style will always be a favourite one :). Though, you have reminded me that I still need to read Girl Boss, I've heard so many good things about it!
