Currently Coveting | May Edition

Pretty Wishlist Collage Fashion Blogger PinkPretty things, pretty pretty things.  Call me frivolous, but I reckon the things we surround ourselves with can alter our entire mood and general outlook.  They can alter our days, weeks, months.  It's why we love fashion, interior design, art etc.  It goes without saying, everything in moderation... but can we just take a moment to swoon over a few 'pretty things' for this beautiful season?  So looking at this wishlist, can you tell I've got a thing for blush/nude shades right now?  Combine them with gentle floral prints and you've got yourself a beautifully feminine, romantic wardrobe prepared for these warmer months of the year...




First of all, you've got to help me.  I've fallen for a bag and can't get up.  Danse Lente is a new brand introduction for me, having discovered them just a few days ago via Net-a-Porter.  The Mia Smooth and textured-leather shoulder bag (top left) is the perfect size for SS18 and features the most gorgeous gold hoop strap attachments.  Chloé also know exactly what they're doing and are continuously bringing out handbags that shoot to the top of everyone's wishlists.  They're quite literally designed to be coveted.  Right now, I've got my eye on the Chloé Nile bracelet bag in blush

Notice the matching floral patterns?  Ted Baker have won me over with their ethereal prints this season, including the Harmony ruffle-neck dress and matching pleated maxi dress.  Do I hear you say wedding guest outfit?  The maxi dress was inspired by the beauty of an English garden.  Now, I don't know which English garden this is, but wow I need to visit...

*

Keeping with the theme of floral prints, if you follow along with my IG Stories, you'll have spotted the most gorgeous Seafolly bikini from Cocobay Swimwear.  Quite possibly my favourite warm-weather gift to have received lately, because it features every flattering element you can imagine: generous soft cups, underwire, extra removable booster pads (oh yes) and hipster pants.  Seriously, take a look at the Seafolly Love Bird range, it tells a 'nostalgic and feminine story consisting of old world charm and romance, reminiscent of a traditional French inspired trend'.  Beautiful. 

*

Can you ever have too many pairs of block-heeled sandals in your wardrobe?  The answer should be obvious and if not, it's time to treat yourself to a new pair!  I'm currently coveting these Carvela Kansas nude studded heels by Kurt Geiger.  Perfect heel height and gorgeously versatile for switching from outfit to outfit.  Plus, it helps they have an obvious Valentino vibe to them!

*

My favourite element of this month's currently coveting edition is undoubtedly the brooches.  They're totally unnecessary in the very best of ways.  Right now, I'm imagining adorning denim jackets and trench vests with the Saint Laurent crocodile brooch and Gucci double G crystal brooch.  Divine.  If you've got a birthday coming up, be sure to hint in this direction.

*

Okay and finally, the itty-bitty prettiest things.  Cosmetics.  Anyone else find themselves falling into the gravitational pull of pink/blush shades right now?  The warmer weather screams for healthy glows and flushed cheeks.  With this in mind, I'm curious about the Hourglass ambient lighting blush - and it's not a wishlist without a mention of Charlotte Tilbury, right?  Hello Filmstar Bronze & Glow.  Not at all surprised this is a bestseller, and the same could be said for their eye lash curlers.  Remind me again why I'm not already using these?!  


What's on your wishlist right now?
Anything catch your eye?

With love,

Gabrielle x

  3. These are beautiful picks Gabrielle! I too am all about the blushes, nudes, and florals this season! They put me in a great mood and enhance the changing seasons and environment. As for my current wish list, I've been obsessed with this Golden Flutter Dress from Zimmermann: https://us.zimmermannwear.com/readytowear/clothing/dresses/golden-flutter-dress-tangerine-vine-floral.html
    Along with a particular pair of Chanel sandals which I couldn't manage to find on line, and as for beauty, the new Marc Jacobs limited edition eyeshadow palette: https://www.marcjacobsbeauty.com/eye-conic/multi-finish-eyeshadow-palette/MJ20016.html?dwvar_MJ20016_color=MJ2102.

  6. Ha! Before I even read the first sentence, I thought "These are very pretty." Of course we should swoon over pretty things. Life is short. Do it. I personally don't know if I'll ever get over that Gucci brooch. It's gorgeous!

  7. "I've fallen for a bag and can't get up" - ah hahaha I love this. And I ADORE that dress. I always struggle to pick something to wear to weddings and that is just perfection. Also, the bathing suit too. These are excellent picks. 100% ready to throw on the 'kini and get some sun!

  26. The dresses are so pretty! I could do with some similar nude shoes too. I am looking forward to the corals/pinks in summer makeup, but hoping my skin calms down first (the weather has thrown it off) x

  27. I do agree with you. Surrounding ourselves with beautiful things can only help our mood. I don't think there is anything wrong in admiring and owning beautiful things. As you say, everything in measure. Those brooches are insanely beautiful. I used to design and make brooches myself in the past, perhaps I need to get into it again. Everything on this list is simply divine. Gorgeous floral dresses, perfect bags! That bikini is so cute.

  28. This is such a lovely post. I love beautiful accessories and for me - handbags are an essential, there's something about handbags that really bring an outfit together and I absolutely love the bracelet bag - it's beautiful!

    Hope you're well lovely!
