Can you believe another month has gone by? August is a weird one for me. It was the month of my birthday and even though that was at the beginning, it still feels like it was months ago in a really weird way, however the year as a whole has flown by. It was only Christmas not long ago, I’m sure! I’m thinking that it’s even weirder that I’m going to be 30 in 11 months time! That’s insane! It’s relevant though as every year that goes by, my personal style evolves a lot more and it’s interesting to see how much it’s changed since I started blogging (which you can see here if you missed it). So, with that in mind, what’s on my Currently Craving Wish List for August then? A lot of things!
As you can see from the collage above, my mentality is happily transitioning into the Autumn with the pieces that I’m craving and loving. I can’t wait for the weather to cool down so that I can start wearing layers again! Gosh, layers, remember those? I’m loving floral and embellishments at the moment, so that Rebecca Minkoff bag and the two Gucci options are so gorgeous! I’m happy just to stare at them. With regards to denim, I’m feeling the two tone look a lot, still loving embroidery, and I’m sure you all know I love to bring out the burgundy and velvet in the cooler months, so that’s why those jeans are on the list.
Then I have a quilted jacket from Joules which I think is stunning. It didn’t suit me too well in person as it was too big, but I am contemplating the smaller size. I’ve also ordered the check shirt as I think it’s ideal to wear casually with skinny jeans and ankle boots. The phone case and the nail polish don’t need any explanation, they’re just beautiful colours, but the Gucci belt? Who couldn’t love the classic Gucci Double GG Belt in a lilac shade as well! It’s so pretty! Do you have a favourtie from my collage above? I’m not finished though as there’s still some pieces below!
Now ALLSAINTS isn’t a brand that I have mentioned in quite some time. I’ve got numerous jackets and knitted tops of theirs as you know, but they didn’t seem to bring anything out for the SS17 season that I was into, so I lost a bit of interest. For me, I find they’re always an AW brand anyway, so it’s no surprise that I’m loving these new pieces! How stylish and sleek is that trench coat? And the knitwear looks dreamy with the asymmetrical style and muted colour palettes! Then can we talk about the white oversized leather jacket? I saw that and fell in love! I don’t think it would suit me at all though as my chest is too big for oversized items like that, but it looks incredible on the model and the styling is perfect! What do you think?
Then finally, we have three pieces from the Iceberg shop online (which is part of GilmarLab) that I was recently introduced to! It’s a new online boutique where luxury fashion and high-end sportswear bond, with the headquarters in Italy. I’m always a huge fan of Italian fashion. Now these three pieces are a little more quirky, but I adore them. I’m in love with printed shirts and colours like that, so that blouse is stunning! But the long maxi dress has the most unique print on it, I don’t even know how to explain it. And then, of course we have a raincoat! How can I not include one of those? White with prints on it is something you can’t deny looks elegant and fun, embracing my childhood at the same time as looking stylish. What do you think? And of course, tell me what’s on your wish list this month!
