I returned from Menorca two weeks ago, and I’m already craving another beach holiday. But this has nothing to do with wanting to relax – I’m simply seeking an excuse to wear all of the treasures featured in this week’s wish list. Monsoon’s Mexican print floral dress immediately caught my eye, and it’s the perfect companion for Isabel Marant’s beautiful embroidered sandals. Both designs live outside the world of fad fashion trends and will continue to look great summer after summer, so they’re worthy investments.
The same can be said for the Mango cactus straw bag, even though it’s become a bit of an ‘It’ SS16 purchase. I believe every woman should own a straw tote bag, and the cheerful pattern on this beauty will liven-up even the most basic of warm-weather outfits. Get yours before the style completely sells out or live to regret it!
And, of course, you can’t jet off on a beach holiday without a great pair of denim shorts. These light-wash Topshop boyfriend shorts are a great length and the lose fit feels more current than the tight hotpants of yesteryear.
Are you tempted to purchase any of these style buys for your summer vacation? Which designs have caught your eye?
