On the Wish List: Last Minute High Summer Buys

Beach Style Mara Hoffman

I always forget how difficult it is to compile shopping features and wish lists during the summer. Monday afternoon was spent circling the best online stores searching for something – anything – worth showing you. And let me tell you, it’s slim pickings out there at the moment! Obviously no one is going to turn their nose up at a great bargain, but 90% of the end-of-season sale stock isn’t even worth a second look. And there’s not a lot going in on the “new in” sections either.

But it’s not all bad news. If you’re in the mood to shop I’ve managed to track down eight buys perfect for high summer…

Swimsuit: Mara Hoffman (40% off)
Hat: Accessorize
Dress: J.Crew
Bracelet: I Am by Ileana Makri
Sweatshirt: Topshop
Skirt: MICHAEL Michael Kors (55% off)
Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti

J.Crew’s navy broderie anglaise dress has jumped straight to the top of my wish list. During the day you could wear it with Accessorize’s straw hat and ASOS’s pom pom bag, and then for the evening add gold jewellery and a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti fishbone sandals (which, by the way, I think are insanely cool). Leave a comment to let me know how you’d style it…

FYI: ASOS is now back up and running after a fire in their warehouse over the weekend. And their summer sale officially started yesterday. Shop here.

    These are the must-haves things for your summer. I really liked the hat and bag. This looks trendy and cool for the summer.
