Why is it that when the seasons change, all the clothes in my closet suddenly become unwearable? I know that I must have worn something this time last year, but with the weather getting warmer I find it almost impossible to dress myself these days. My wardrobe is filled with pieces that aren't quite right — the wrong colours, the wrong shapes, the wrong hemlines, the wrong prints, the wrong everything. Spring has finally sprung — hallelujah! — and all I want to do is shop. Here's my wish list for the season:
Every year I hunt for a few perfect, easy dresses that will get me through the hotter months looking effortlessly put-together. The ruffle-hip tank dress and shadow-print smocked dress (both by Thakoon Addition) are top contenders.
I'd wear this nude sequined silk-georgette top by Chloe to brunch with rolled-cuff boyfriend jeans and cute flats — I love an unexpected touch of sparkle for day.
I don't do shorts — ever — but if I did, these army-green cotton shorts from Juicy Couture would be making their way into my spring/summer wardrobe.
Hmm, can you tell I'm loving nude and khaki and sequins at the moment? This 3.1 Phillip Lim sequined silk chiffon top is the perfect amalgamation of all three.
It's definitely not my usual style, but I find myself drawn to the simplicity of this By Malene Birger cotton shirtdress — just add heels and you're done.
I'm in dire need of some new spring skirts, and this grey and yellow printed Rag & Bone Rose skirt feels sweet and fresh.
Love the fun, juicy colours on this Marc by Marc Jacobs Jacquetta striped miniskirt.
This Jason Wu fan-pleat silk skirt would be gorgeous for alfresco dinner dates.
How cool is this Opening Ceremony cape-sleeve trench? Wannnnnnnt.
I'm really loving teensy tiny bags at the moment, and this 3.1 Phillip Lim Adin purse pretty much epitomizes pint-sized utilitarian perfection.
Spring means finally getting to wear sandals again, yay! I'm seriously lusting after these Sigerson Morrison asymmetric python sandals. You can never, ever have too many pairs of flat sandals.
And since sandals require a flawless pedicure, what better excuse to stock up on new nail polish colours? My favourite for spring is Lapis of Luxury, a rich cornflower blue from Essie's new resort collection. Can't wait until this one comes out.
What's on your spring wish list?
