Whistles Helena crepe trousers

Have to admit I'm kind of relieved this heatwave is pretty much over. Don't get me wrong, I love the heat when I'm in a bikini on a beach. Working in an office without air con, however, leaves me craving rain. Plus as a minimalist dresser it gets difficult to find different creative ways of wearing loose-fitting black dresses. Pretty glad to be back in my trusty Whistles trousers, albeit pepped up with a little bit of asymmetry via this reduced & Other Stories top (winner).

today i love... the saturday wish list



If you still haven't got the perfect classic leather biker in your wardrobe, then this Topshop beauty is a great inexpensive option. I particularly love the rusty orange silk lining.

I've heard great things about this perfume, and if the scent is as sophisticated and complex as the Byredo candles I have, then the hype is justified. It's certainly not cheap, but surely the lure of having that beautiful bottle on your dressing table alone is worth it.

In this heatwave a loose silky slip dress is just what the doctor ordered (especially if you're of the minimalist persuasion like me and recoil in horror from flouncy floral frocks). This & Other Stories beauty fits the bill perfectly and what's more, it's not actually silk so is machine washable = always a winner.

The only problem with decorating your flat entirely in white is that white curtains don't really block out the light. To be honest it doesn't bother me that much, but occasionally if I wake up early I need to put an eye mask on to fall back asleep. At the moment I'm using a navy British Airways one which unfortunately leaves blue marks on my pillows, so I can't wait for this lovely white silk version to arrive on my doorstep instead.

5. French Connection large pillar candle holder / £12.50 (reduced from £25)
There's little more chic than marble when it comes to interiors. This beautiful candle holder would look divine in any room and is especially attractive at half price...

You can always rely on Whistles to create the best bags on the high street. This buckled satchel looks way above its price tag and would pep up any summer outfit.
