Currently Coveting: Topshop May '12

daisybutter - UK Fashion Blog: topshop wishlist, uk high street

Can't quite decide whether letting myself browse the Topshop website was a good or bad idea in hindsight: on one hand, it's a great little motivator when your basket is filled with potential buys, and on the other, it kinda kills your soul a little when you realise that £196 on five items is a teeny bit out of reach. I have a love/hate relationship of the most extreme sorts with Topshop, I either want everything - keep reading and see below - or shudder at sugar skulls that wouldn't suit me at all. I digress.

I'm in love with these flock spot trousers at the moment. Liv and Aisling both have the green and black pair, which looked awful with my pale olive skintone, but these I can get on with. They'd be perfect with the little lace, sweetheart top and heart trim sandals, no? Although if I did suddenly lose the plot and buy them, in reality I'd be wearing them with my faithful moccassins (also Topshop...) and some form of knitwear with a rainproof something over the top. April showers, I've quite about had enough of you and your outfit ruining ways!

Tried this tweed boyfriend coat on the other week, when I went shopping with my Mum and sister, and it completely swamped me. Going to be brave, leave my purse at home, and try the petite on in store and look at things objectively before I add another jacket to my collection. Sensible shopping, Michelle...

Do you find that Topshop stocks polar opposites of clothes too? What are you coveting for your Spring/Summer wardrobe, if you can see it past all of the drought-infused rain? (I don't understand it either.)

  2. I could really use that coat at the moment for when it's kinda just chilly in the morning, but it looks light enough to wear if it gets a little warmer in the afternoon. Doesn't TopShop have 20% online at the moment for students? I think I tweeted about it earlier today =/ xoxo

  7. Those sandals are lovely aren't they? You're right, they'd go so well with the pretty blue trousers. I've just about had enough of this rain which is enough to flood but not enough to stop Britain's drought.. Haha x

  18. Those jeans are amazing!

    I have the same thing with Topshop - I love looking at all of their gorgeous clothes, but it makes me die inside when I realise my wishlist usually costs more than my rent! x

  19. I am exactly the same with Topshop, depending on the season/range I either hate everything or love everything. I really enjoy that tweed boyfriend coat though, I think that would look gorgeous on you if you find a petite one! I need to get one of those Topshop lipsticks, I love all the shades, just need to find one that suits me!

  20. I love pretty much all of this, but agree with the heart wrenching fantasy shopping experience. That is A LOT for 5 items!! I love the look of that coat too but it'd probably swamp me too at 5'8" - Just looks... big! lol xx
