WISHLIST: Dresses, bags and food for Spring

Spring Summer 2017 wishlist fit and flare dresses

Remember, back in the day, when I'd post regularly about clothes and shoes and bags and whatnot, and basically be a fashion blogger type person? Yeah, me too. I don't really see me going back to my ways completely (I never quite got over the awkwardness of taking outfit photos), but lately I've found myself falling in love with clothes again.

The problem of late has been that my kind of clothes simply haven't been in the shops. Honestly, my style hasn't changed all that much during the many, many, many years that I've had this blog (I actually wore a dress to a wedding on Saturday that I featured in an outfit post on here in 2012!) but what's deemed trendy has changed. I've been turning to online-only brands like Emily & Fin, Sugarhill Boutique and Collectif as my lunchtime wanders through my old favourites like New Look and Topshop have just turned up unflattering smock dresses, bodycon skirts that wouldn't go over my hips and midi frocks that would come down to the floor on me. Boo.

BUT! Suddenly, the shops are improving. I'm putting the blame at the feet of some of this year's most successful films - Emma Stone's wardrobe in La La Land was to die for (I now have a yellow flowered dress winging its way to me) and the dresses in Hidden Figures... oh, be still my heart. So here, for the first time in a long time, is a wishlist of some of the things I'm loving in the shops right now. Plus some food, because a girl's gotta eat, obvs.



Dresses!
Now is the season - at least nearly - for bare legs, weekend weddings, park picnics and all the cute prints and bright colours. Hooray!

Bags!
I have no idea if novelty bags are still a thing or not (this lobster one is amazing) but if not, at least we know embroidery is still trendy. Also, do we care what's trendy? Nah. Not gonna lie, I've already ordered that blue scallop number from Spartoo.

Food!
BBQs and ice cream and picky dinners, oh my! FYI the Movenpick ice cream tastes like the inside of a Solero, the Oreo eggs are joy incarnate and I haven't tried the crisps yet but am SO INTRIGUED.
