Over the past week the Great British Summer has seemingly arrived. We have had glorious sunshine, I’ve picked up my first dose of sunburn of the year and as I’m sat here writing this the birds are singing their sweet song.
Plus I now have my holidays booked it at work, a trip to Gran Canaria and several events in my diary over the next month to look forward to. But now that the sun has got it’s hat on and I am very much in Summer mode I thought that I would put together ‘The Summer Edit’ of ‘My Heart Desires’.
(Clockwise from top left)
Victoria’s Secret – Flirt Bandeau & Knockout Bikini – £18.17 / £13.64 I don’t need much more in the way of swimwear this year to be honest, my wardrobe is packed full of bikinis, but I think I have a soft spot for them. I love the fit of the VS ones as the cling to me in the right places and don’t dig in. Their sets are mix and match so you can create a style you love and my heart is set on this Goa Stripe top.
Superdry – Navigator Sunglasses – £24.99 Another thing that I don’t need is sunglasses, I already have my Ray-Bans and a pair of wayfarer style ones from Superdry that I picked up last year but I love the orange lenses on here, they make a real statement and scream Summer.
Tarte – Tartelette in Bloom – £33.00 I have a real thing for Tarte Cosmetics at the minute, I’m slightly hooked after getting the ‘Lights, Camera, Party’ palette for Christmas last year. I can see this little palette being my next addition thanks to its mix of matte & luster shades. I can see ‘Firecracker’ being a favourite.
Essie – Lounge Lover – £7.99When it comes to nail varnish I am not brand loyal in the slightest and will pick up whatever is pretty on the shelf! Lounge Lover is a muted peach pink that actually made me think of Nars’ Orgasm blusher when I first saw it – that’s a good thing surely?
Sundripped – The Cali – £50.00Said to have been inspired by Santorini, this circular beach towel deserves to see the world doesn’t it? It’s so pretty and I have seen these on so many blogs and vlogs lately. The question is do I do it or is it too cliche?
Roxy – Wheelie Case – £85.00 I have a Roxy Wheelie for about the last 10 years or so. But these days the trolley handle doesn’t always work, the material is a little messed up in places and it may almost be time to retire my trusty case to the loft for good (what, I can’t part with the memories) and so I have been looking at what they have on offer at the minute and this Maui inspired case is so pretty!
Superdry – Isabelle Espadrille Wedge Sandals – £34.99These espadrille style wedges from Superdry could have been made for me. First of all tan is my favourite colour footwear in Summer because it goes with everything and secondly the wedge style makes them comfy enough for a Sunset stroll along the seafront.
New Look – Straw Bucket Hat – £5.99I love my straw hat (even if someone in my life doesn’t but so far it has been to Cyprus, Sorrento & it will be going to Gran Canaria) because I do not want a burnt head – we often forget to cover our heads in the sun and it is just as important as protecting our skin when out enjoying the heat. This New Look one is so cute too!
And there you have it – a very Summer edition of ‘My Heart Desires’ I’d love to hear what you guys have your eyes on this month.
Let me know below and I’ll catch up with you again soon, until then though x
