today i bought... h&m leopard jacket


H&M leopard jacket /

Ever since I saw this padded leopard beauty on Andyheart's blog back in March (in fact, while I was in Australia), I've been desperate to get my hands on it. I've written before about H&M's poor stock control in only putting their most fashion-forward items in a few select stores (and not on their website), so needless to say this has proven frustratingly hard to track down. I've checked my local H&M every week since then, as well as several London stores and even one in Belgium. But it was to no avail; I feared I'd missed out on the jacket and had all but given up on it. However, when I was in Edinburgh at the weekend I thought I'd just check in the H&M there anyway, not holding out much hope, and lo and behold there it was. I nearly shrieked in delight. I snapped it up pronto and even got £5 off, thanks to a voucher I was given when I brought in a bagful of old clothes to my local H&M. And it's safe to say it was well worth waiting for.

Saturday's outfit from a surprisingly warm and sunny Edinburgh. Spent the day strolling around taking in some of the sights, and after a mere three hours' sleep my new Clubmasters proved perfect for hiding my somewhat worse for wear eyes...

today i want... marc by marc jacobs techno holographic clutch



I know, I know... Another holographic accessory. But this is blue. Plus, it's Marc by Marc Jacobs. Plus, it's only £85, which for a slice of shiny designer wrist candy is pretty darned good. Did I mention it's shiny and blue? I am envisaging it paired simply with a white skirt and nude tank top in the summer for an eye-catching yet totally simple cocktail look. Or with an all-black outfit on cooler days to add a little bit of shine. Heck, it'll look good with anything and everything. Go forth and purchase!

today i bought... ray-ban clubmasters



I adore my black Ray-Ban Wayfarers, but since I pretty much wear them to death I figured it might be time to get a little company for them in my list of go-to sunglasses. I'm not sure why, but I really think it's worth splashing out for the real deal when it comes to sunglasses rather than settling for a knock-off pair. Anyway, Ray-Bans are pretty reasonably priced compared to some designer shades and have the very important bonus that the styles don't date, making them a worthy investment in my opinion. I'd had my eye on a pair of Clubmasters for a while now, so when I got a Boots money off voucher I knew I couldn't resist. I'm in Edinburgh this weekend so here's hoping for a little Scottish sunshine to try them out on!

Maison Scotch jumper /
Topshop jeans /
Topshop shoes /

I almost didn't buy these shoes because I already owned them in nude, but when they were reduced from £85 to £25 last summer I couldn't resist snapping them up. And I'm so glad I did, because they're definitely one of my absolute favourite pairs. Surprisingly comfortable and easy to walk in and just oh so beautiful.

today i bought... zara nude sandals



I posted about the black version of these beautiful sandals a while ago (here), proclaiming them to be quite possibly the perfect shoe. The only drawback was that I already owned a very similar pair. So when I saw that Zara had introduced a nude colour way of said perfect shoe, it took me all of 30 seconds to add them to my basket and click them home. My only deliberation was between two sizes; I find that sandals like this often require you to take a smaller size than usual because if they're slightly too big the ankle strap has to work twice as hard, meaning they're much more difficult to walk in. Anyway, suffice it to say that I love them wholeheartedly. Now I just have to beg Zara to please stop producing such beautiful shoes, because there's only so much my bank balance can take...

today i want... may wish list


A little bit late on the wish list this month, but that's not to say there aren't a whole host of lovely clothes and accessories that my debit card is just itching to shell out for. This month's crop includes some beautiful blue crepe trousers from (where else?) Whistles, Reiss' answer to the perfect black day bag, an electric blue bikini that's making me wish for warmer climes and some kind of crazy but utterly beautiful rose gold safety pin earrings which I've fallen for 100%. Given that I'm trying to be good this month, I'm sort of hoping none of these things make it into my wardrobe, but on the other hand... I totally hope they do.

today i want... zara holographic sandals



This morning I was just casually browsing Zara's "new in" section (both a wonderful and a torturous activity, since I inevitably want everything I see) when I came across these beauties and genuinely said out loud "Oh my god!" I mean, have you ever seen such an amazing pair of shoes in all your life? I don't know about you, but I'm still ridiculously obsessed with all things holographic (it's like metallic but better, right?) When I was putting together my holographic accessories post, I struggled to find any shoes which weren't a) heart-stoppingly expensive or b) horribly tacky. But of course Zara have done it again and managed to create something which is brilliantly cheap but absolutely does not look it. I mean, dream shoes for less than £30? Now I just need to contain my excitement long enough to click them home...

This weather is incredibly hard to dress for. I go from freezing in the morning to boiling during the day and never seem to be quite the right temperature... Still, that's what layers are for, right?

today i want... reiss 1971 dijon quilted sweatshirt





In the last couple of months I've been reacquainting myself with Reiss and remembering just how much I love their clothes. Yes, for the most part they are out of my budget, but some items are worth paying a little more for. The designs seem to get better and better each season and right now I'm pretty much in love with everything on the site. This quilted sweatshirt is top of my wish list for its fresh white colour and versatility: it's ideal for this confused weather we're having at the moment, and will look just as good with jeans under a coat now as it will with black silk shorts and sandals in a few weeks' time. And it's not just me who appreciates this high end high street stalwart: when I went along to the Reiss sample sale a couple of weeks ago, the snaking queue (yes, queue!) was made up of the best dressed women and men I've seen in a long time. Sadly, they all snapped up everything good before I could, so I'll have to settle for the full-priced merchandise...

I'm too short to wear flats; or, at least, I'm too short to look as good in flats as I do in heels. As I'm sure many of you will know, once you get used to wearing heels (and how your legs look in them), it's fairly horrifying how short and stumpy you feel in flats. For this reason I barely ever wear them (2 or 3 inch heeled boots like my Marant Dickers are my equivalent). However, every now and then I make an exception for these Zara velvet slippers. It was love at first sight when I bought them at the end of last year and although they gave me epic blisters for a while (not ideal when your flats are less comfortable than your heels), I've now worn them in and they're just perfect. I mainly wear them for commuting (there's nothing I hate more than women ruining their lovely work outfits with ugly trainers on public transport, so I love that my comfortable shoes are still beautiful). Occasionally, though, I'll wear them just because I love them and put up with feeling short. Sometimes they're worth it.
