Summer Wishlist || Life as a Petite

Boo! 

Hope you're all having a wonderful wonderful week and have had a chance to enjoy the gorgeous weather! 

As part of the Summer 'Closet Swap' campaign ran by Raise.com (a little bit more about the campaign below) this week I am sharing with you all my summer wishlist. I love reading wishlist posts, but I actually find them quite hard to make. Not just because I'm still unsure which programme to use, but also because my lists are never-ending and ever-growing:p Does anyone else have this same problem?:p

Clothes
I am a massive pastel lover, I think I've mentioned that too many times, but I just am. I just can't get enough of it! Especially with mint. And my obsession is evident from my wishlist. I did say I'd attempt more bold colours in my previous pastel outfit post (here) didn't I?...Well that might just have to wait because it's not happening any time soon:p Although, I have ventured into looking for floral prints, which a hot trend perfect for this summer! I'm not usually a floral fan as they don't really suit me I don't think. But I'm being a little brave here by choosing this dress (7) mainly because of the pastel colour, chiffon material and cute peter pan collar - my favourite things!

I've seen a lot of people wear dungarees lately and am debating whether to get some. I think they look really cool but am unsure whether they'd be so cool on myself...I'm too worried I'll look silly and look even more childish...In any event it's on my summer wishlist :)

Finally I just wanted to briefly mention the leather jacket (10). I first saw it in one of Zoe from Zoella's vlog and really liked it until I googled how much it was...£358!!! That's crazy! As much as I really like that style there's no way I could or would spend that much. I definitely want a leather jacket similar to this though, minus the huge price tag. If any of you know where best to find bargain leather jackets I'd love to know :)

 Accessories/Others
I haven't got much on this list and it's really just a mixture of random things. 


I really need to stop buying shoes as I have far too many...:p But I just fell in love with these wedges whilst browsing Amazon. They are so perfect for summer especially for a petite to give you a little bit of height. I'm actually doing a guest post for Becky from This is Me My Blog for her Petite Series on 'Petite Summer Must Haves' so do keep your eye out on that and her other posts :)



The fairy lights are extremely random and have nothing to do with summer but I just really wanted some star shaped fairy lights so thought I'd add it to my wishlist.

So Raise.com are running an interactive 'Closet Swap' campaign where they are looking to hear about your wardrobe changes as we enter into the summer months. Do you get gift cards for birthdays etc to stores that you never shop at? If so, Raise.com might just be for you as it is a marketplace where you can buy discounted gift cards to your favourite brands, and sell your unused gift cards for cash! I thought it'd be interesting to take part in this campaign as I'd love to see how other bloggers switch to summer mode.

***
Love Song by Sara Bareilles --> This song for some reason reminds me of summer...even though it has nothing to do with it;p But it's just an amazing song - when I was stressed I used to play this on the piano, it's very therapeutic ;p I'm yet to master how people sing and play at the same time...my brain doesn't work that way, and for those who can I am so jealous:p:) I can't believe this was released 7 years ago...time has flown by so quickly!


I hope you enjoyed this summer wish list - what are you lusting for this summer? :)

Enjoy the rest of your week :D Take care and speak soon!

  1. Lovely wishlist, I can remember seeing the leather jacket in Zoe's vlog too, its beautiful but quite pricey too, I'm sure there would be a cheaper high street alternative :)

  5. This wish list is right up my street, I'm really loving the pastel trend at the moment and just adding a hint of pastel can really make an outfit look summery! Too much white for me tho as I'm a serial spiller and end up looking splattered lol! I absolutely love the star fairy lights! I've spend a fortune on all different types for my wedding reception. Thanks for the shout out lovely :) appreciate it! Can't wait to publish your post :)

  23. fashion (freeonlinetypinggames.com) is more than checking out magazines or
    blogs. Typically quite a few dry cleaning places have sewers.
    This style of dress started the straighter-waist outfit.
