Weekend Wishlist - Littlewoods Ireland

OK, this weather is really getting me down! Snow at the end of March? Sigh. In an effort to focus on better weather ahead, I was happy to take up the offer from Littlewoods to create a Pinterest Wishlist Board for sunnier days, based on items from the their website. Here's what I've pinned so far..

First up, a stunning 'Russian doll' print top? A great transitional piece as it will work well with black,denim and white. Meanwhile, every girl should have a spiked statement necklace this season (jewellery & weapon in one!). Summer footwear wise, I'm seeing lots of stores stocking block heel, ankle strap sandals. Comfy, easy to walk in and great with skinnies or boyfriend/cropped trousers.

Clarks Sharna Balcony Leather Sandal
Next up, my coat of choice this SS13 (and you do know, we'll need a coat this summer!) is a parka. Littlewoods have this  great lightweight one in a wide range of sizes. Fabulous sunnies are a must - I love a neutral shade so these Marc Jacobs ones are perfect and co-ordinate well with a blush cross-body handbag.

Mischa Barton Crossbody Bag
 The wedge is back and is bigger than ever this year. Pick a neutral shade like these Clarks ones and they will be more wearable day and night during the warmer weather. Cropped trousers are everywhere and these hot pink ones would work well styled with a lace top like this one from Fearne Cotton.

Then....as I was browsing, I found something wonderful. Remember my holy grail of handbags, my black Fossil bag from this post? Well, it comes in a light tan colour too! Seriously tempting...

If you're on Pinterest, do drop by and say hi and you can re-pin any of these pieces if you have a SS13 wishlist board yourself. I should say, all items are also available on the UK website too by clicking on this link. Any favourites for you amongst this lot? 
Have a good weekend and stay safe and warm if you're in the parts of the country affected by the snow x

  5. Wow - I am so loving all those combos my head is spinning! I am so into this new global thing - that necklace is really cool.. . but also I love the honey coloured board and the fushia. You might see in my outfit post photo today that my standard Marc Jacobs bag is a bit slumpy and everything tips out - must take a look at that Fossil one, so pretty

  7. Hi there! Yes I went into Fossil on Friday and thought of you-the bags are so covetable and I adored them, but can't justify three figures really ;-( Love your picks, especially the Clarks sandals! Have a good Sunday xxx

  12. Warning re the fossil bag - I have the Tote version in this colour, and it is terrible for picking up colour transfer from clothes. Do NOT let it rub against jeans!!!

    1. Thanks for the tip off. It's the super soft leather in them I think. I have a similar issue with an LK Bennett bag. Just need to be careful with them I guess! Worth it for the fabulousness..says she justifying the purchase!! Ax
