The Wishlist…[Fashion]

The Wish List

As some of you may know, I am trying to refine my wardrobe and beauty collection.

I want to have a smaller quantity of better quality items. As part of this process, I decided to sit down and think about what my wardrobe is missing.

At the moment there are 5 key items that I think would really improve my wardrobe and they are;

One | Long formal coat

If you are unfamiliar with Irish weather, it can be accurately described as grey, cold and wet with approximately 10 days of sunshine yearly. (A favorite phrase of Irish people is ‘you wouldn’t bother leaving it if we got the weather’).

At the moment, my wardrobe is definitely lacking a nice black formal coat that I can wear for multiple occasions… and I have my eye on the one above!

Two | Simple everyday bracelet

I love simple chic jewelry and I think a bracelet like the one above is a perfect example of a piece that you could wear everyday. It will help to make any outfit a little more luxurious.

Three | Sharp white blazer

I’ve been looking out for a a sharp white blazer for some time. As I am only 5’2″, it can be difficult to find something that fits and hits the right places. I am going to blame Pinterest for this particular lust as I have a board dedicated to ‘work wear‘ and white blazers are a regular feature!

Four | Black work bag

On my last trip to Kildare Village I found what I think will be my next big purchase, a work tote bag. I try not to carry too many things around with me but inevitably I end up with more than my bag can facilitate. I want to have a bag that can carry a laptop and folders.

When I look for bags, one of the first things I consider is how secure the closure is. I want a zip closure that runs the full length of the bag and doesn’t have open sides.

The bag included in the link is not the exact bag I am considering, but it’s very similar. As I hope to purchase it from Kildare Village, it will also be a good bit cheaper, (thankfully!).

Five | Nude heels

As I am paler than milk, finding the perfect pair of nude heels is a challenge. I have worn cream heels previously and someone has asked if I am wearing white tights…No, I am just that pale! I think I might have to look closer to a stone colour or potentially a very light tan, so this one is still very much a work in progress.

What are your wardrobe essentials?
