I've been holding myself back on the shopping front recently. No more taking a detour through the City Centre on the way home from Uni! But I did have a really quick, purchase-less snoop around the shops yesterday, and nothing caught my eye anyway! Always the way... A few things I am currently lusting after, and secretly hoping my mother treats me to when I visit home this weekend.

Oh yes, more Topshop on the blog. I have realised that the Topshop side of my wardrobe has been making more of an appearance recently, not really sure why this is, I tend to go through phases! Something I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with are the Topshop basics range. The quality is pretty good in my opinion, usually lovely, soft jersey fabrics, amazing cuts for my shape but the prices always put me off. However(!!!): Topshop have definitely come up trumps with these Scallop Edged Vests! At £15, and in really on-trend colours, these are SO pretty and reminiscent of Chloe pieces. Wantneedmayget.

I'm after a new purse at the moment. I'm such a purse compartment geek though, I want one that is pretty and has nice sections for everything haha! At the moment, the Chloe Marcie leather wallet has caught my eye, and is right at the top of my Christmas list (which is coming to my blog in about 2 weeks!) I also spied these Team Sleep pyjamas when on my annual Christmas pyjama hunt. Not that these are Xmassy, just really cute!

I also saw this cardigan coat in River Island, which is a bit hit-and-miss. It looks lovely and cosy, with an on-trend 'waterproof' quilted lining. I think this is a strictly wish not want item as I'd never wear it! What do you think? Finally, a Daisybutter Wednesday Want wouldn't be complete without a pair of tights: bow chain patterned tights from River Island anyone?! I love the look of these, as well as their Fairisle tights and tattoo effect tights!

(P.S. Thank you so much for helping me reach 500 followers tonight, aren't you all amazing? I am currently organising a giveaway, I'm hoping for it to go live next week as I'm away this weekend to see my family at home! ♥♥♥)
