Holiday Lust List

The month has come, I’m finally off to the land where dreams are made and most definitely shattered… LA!  In a few days I’ll be sitting on the plane on my way to LAX to meet a few of my friends who have been off travelling for the last few months.  Then six of us will be embarking on a Cali road trip, Santa Barabara to San Diego with a little trip to Coachella Festival in between.  I CANNOT WAIT.

In prep for this little trip ( OK so I’ve been prepping for this for a few months, I have a problem) I’ve maybe done a bit of internet shopping as well as a lot of internet browsing for outfit inspiration.  Here’s a little lust list I’ve put together of bits I’ve bought or really must buy before I go.

Any Cali tips are welcoming, especially shopping recommendations for when we are out there!


1. Black Ribbon Trim Shaker Hat, River Island 

Black River Island Summer Hat

I’ve been looking for a summer hat for ages, and I wasn’t really sure if hats suited me – you have to have an air of confidence to pull the look off.  However I’ve just purchased this one in the hope that once I’m out in the sun rocking a tan I’ll pull the hat look off with ease.  I hope.

2. New Look Shoreditch Monochrome Heeled Sandals, ASOS

So these beauties are actually in the sale on ASOS, I really need to sort myself out and order them.  It’s pretty tricky ordering shoes online but I think these look great as the monochrome look will really go with anything, day or night.

3. Key West Triangle Bikini, Melissa Odabash

Key West Triangle Bikini

Melissa Odabash Biknis are the dream.  Look how pretty this one is, shame right now I really cannot justify buying an expensive piece of swimwear especially as you don’t get a lot of material for your $$. Maybe I’ll go crazy and buy an amazing one in America – better start saving my money.

4. Bottle Green Perspex Embellished Clutch, Skinny Dip London

Perspex Jewel Clutch Bag Coachella

The trend this summer is all about perspex bags, and I love these Skinny Dip London embellished bags.  They make such a statement and are so fun.  They also make iPhone cases, not sure how practical they are but they look damn sexy.

5. A-Morir Gold-Tone Pave Lana Sunglasses, Liberty

Flower embellished cat eye sunglasses

I absolutely love every single pair of A-Morir sunglasses that I’ve found, and it is a really difficult decision having to choose one pair as realistically I would love about ten pairs.  However I’m determined to buy some for this summer as they are so freaking cool.  All of the designs are embellished and amazing, they are a must have holiday piece.
