Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: november wishlist, orla kiely, zoe karssen, coat, autumn essentials, nexus 5 release

For my November wishlist instalment, I wanted to keep things down to the essentials - whatever that means. Essential wishes, now there’s a force to be reckoned with! Basically, imminent guilt for wanting to shop when the season of giving is upon is has happened. Nevertheless, here’s a smattering of things that simply need to be mine this month.

Top of my list is actually semi-essential and wholly practical for once. My MacBook is feeling a little unloved as of late, and with more clients being added to the portfolio, I’m going to be lugging the Pro around with me a whole lot more. At £48, I have a feeling that this Orla Kiely choice is going to be shimmied into the Christmas list, but just look how pretty it is! In the same vein, I’ve been eyeing up the Lancome DreamTone Serum (£69). I’ve recently sifted through my skincare stash and have noticed a gap in the serum department - but again, another for the Christmas list.

River Island are at the top of my high street list right now. Most of my wardrobe favourites are from their hallowed stores, and this coat looks like an amazing, better quality version of my current winter coat. I also think these heeled boots will make an appearance in the ol’ shoe collection soon: why do all shoes and boots break at the same time, huh?! Riddle me this, fashion world.

In the slogan tee and sweater department, I can’t stop thinking about the Zara varsity sweater and Zoe Karssen Unicorn Stolen tee. Perfect to throw on with a thicker legging and a pair of Converse for sweet weekend looks. And finally, it’s phone upgrade time! The Nexus 5 comes out today and I’ve earmarked it for a purchase after my weekend in Southampton (commencing at 5pm tonight). Watch this space…

I’m off for a weekend away in my beloved Southampton tonight. Catching a post-work train at 5pm and I’m really looking forward to no emails, some stress relief and generally not doing much. Bliss. x

  2. I've needed a laptop case for a really long time now, I'm so anxious taking it into college and knocking it around in my bag- that case looks really sweet and is of course a really practical buy :) and oh man my friend has a nexus 4 and I'm already super jealous of that, there's going to be an even better one?!

  9. Intrigued to find out what you think of the Nexus 5. Since I've been using their tablet I've been pretty impressed with them in general! Wish I could upgrade - stupid 2 yr contracts!
