As you know, I started doing a Currently Craving series last month in May (you can see May’s list here) and I enjoyed it so much, I couldn’t wait to do one for this month of June. I’ve selected 20 items again, from across the web, which are currently on my wish list and I would love to own! While I was working on this post, I actually scooped up that floral Topshop dress as it was too gorgeous to pass on! I also recently acquired the AG Adriano Goldschmied jeans below too, but they are so gorgeous, I just had to include them in the wish list!

If I could recommend two lip products to you then it definitely would be the Baby Lips and the Pixi Lip Balms. Both of those are amazing! The Baby Lips is like a lip balm that hydrates, but it gives a subtle pink tone to your lips while the Pixi products are actually stains in a balm. They hydrate and moisturise your lips while staining them and it seriously lasts a long time! I know some of you might be wondering about that engagement ring up there too. I’m not getting married, it’s just a ring I have always wanted, as in the princess cut diamond on a platinum band. It’s so pretty! So here is my June guide! Which items do you like the most?

The Camo Print Jacket With Skinny Jeans

(Jeans – Exact & Similar, Jacket – Exact & Similar, Shoes – Similar, Bag – Similar, Watch – Similar)

It’s been pretty chilly and wet this weekend, so I opted for something a little more casual and comfortable for my usual Saturday out with my boyfriend routine. I went with my new favourite Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans in Sonoma and paired them with a simple white Zara Tee and a Topshop Camo Jacket layered over the top. I was addicted to this jacket last year, but I haven’t really worn it much this year so far, that’s why I thought it was about time I wore it again! It runs huge and if you are interested in buying it on eBay, I’m usually a UK 6-8 in Topshop, however this one ended up being a UK 4 due to it running big. For those interested in my jeans too, I took a size 27 and they run quite tight, but that’s how I like them to fit. For my shoes, I went with my Topshop Hidden Heel Trainers in Tan and then wore my Olivia Burton Butterfly Watch on my wrist and carried my Mulberry Mini Taylor in Deer Brown.

PLEASE VOTE FOR ME! I put that in bold so I hope you will read it! I have been shortlisted by Company magazine for ‘Best Designed Blog’ and that means so much to me! I work so hard on making sure my layout is pretty, neat and interactive, so to be shortlisted for an award is wonderful! I’m on page 3 with 9 other shortlisted bloggers, so if you could vote for me, that would be amazing. Click here to vote. If you could let me know when you vote, that would be wonderful! You only have to click a few buttons, it’s super easy! Thank you to Company magazine for shortlisting me too, it’s a major publication! Going back to my outfit though, what do you think?

A lot of people often ask me what’s on my wish list or what I’m hoping to buy at the moment. With that in mind, I thought it might be a good idea to do a currently craving post each month! This is going to feature 20 items that I have added to my wish list and would love to own. Ranging from anything like jeans and jackets to bags, watches and make-up! This post can also double up as a monthly gift guide though for anyone with a special occasion coming up! If you like any of these items too, they are numbered and you just click the corresponding number below the collage to purchase. It’s really simple! Which do you like the most? I do actually have 3 of these items in the mail, can you guess which those might be?

Pastel Blue & Pollen Buff

(Jeans – Exact & Similar, Coat – Exact & Similar, Top – Similar, Bag – Exact, Boots – Similar)

I wore this outfit over the weekend while I was out with my boyfriend. You may recognise this coat as it’s almost identical to my yellow Zara coat, just without the pocket! It fits the same and I love pastel blue at the moment as I’m sure you have already noticed! I decided that one thing I needed to stock up on was some pretty coats as being a UK fashion blogger often means they are what I have to wear on a daily basis!

I layered my new blue Zara zippered coat over my Topshop cream peplum top as I love how peplum fits! It’s so flattering to the figure in my opinion! For my jeans, I went with my new dream jeans which I am in love with! My Rag & Bone The Skinny in Sonoma! I got these a couple of weeks ago and have been living in them as they are so perfectly fitted! I originally fell for the wash when I saw it in Harvey Nichols 2 months or so ago. They really are incredible and I recommend them to anyone! They always have such great washes and fits.

I tucked them into my old River Island boots and then, for my bag, I wore something brand new that you haven’t yet seen! My 3.1 Phillip Lim Mini Pashli in Pollen Buff! Isn’t it beautiful? I got it on Shopbop when they had a discount code as I had always wanted a Mini Pashli. I wasn’t 100% sure on the colour at first though as it’s a yellow with brushed orange over the grain, so it’s fairly unique, but I really like it now and have grown to love the colour. It’s pretty heavy for me, but it’s such a great bag! What do you think of the bag, the jeans or the outfit in general?
