Wednesday Wish List: Celebrating Fashion’s Playful Side

ASOS Cat Shift Dress

We’re fast approaching the most serious month in the fashion calendar. The supersized September issues are currently fighting for space on newsstands, and New York Fashion Week is less than a month away (eek). It’s very easy to suddenly get overexcited by all the newness and lose sight of what fashion should really be about – having fun – so this week I’m celebrating the playful, silly and downright adorable. Because why shouldn’t you wear a cat print dress or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs T-shirt if that’s what makes you happy?

Shoes: Sophia Webster | Necklace: Lanvin | Dress: ASOS | iPad Case: ASOS | Shirtdress: House of Holland | T-Shirt: Uniqlo | Skirt: H&M

H&M’s frilled-hem skirt is currently sitting at the top of my wish list. It’s very Roksanda, and also very affordable at £29.99. Pair it with a novelty T-shirt (the Uniqlo UT collection has a great offering) or a silk shirt and bold necklace. I also have my eye on the ASOS cat shift dress, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to you. I wonder if it would be too much to pair it with Sophia Webster’s flamingo flats… Probably, but sometimes more is more. Right?

  • Oh those sophia webster shoes caught my eye the other day, they are the cutest! xx

  • This is such a cute post. I think we all tend to take fashion/style a little too seriously. Where’s the fun in that?

  • Definitely! More is more sometimes!
    The fashion world sometimes does take itself a bit too seriously, so a bit of tounge in cheek never goes amiss!
    Love the print and the colour combo of the H&M skirt.

    Can just imagine Zooey Deschanel wearing that shirt dress and ballet pumps, being suitably adorkable in New Girl.

      Yes, totally!

      • Laughed so hard at Schmidt this week, had to watch it twice. Have you seen Zooey’ s collection with Tommy Hilfiger?
