Summer inspiration.

So, as I wrote in my last post, the shopping bug seems to have bitten me badly. My eyes are popping at all kinds of things – mainly bits for the new house and accessories. Because I'm still nowhere near my pre-preg shape so it's just easier to accessorize than diet. Sigh.

Here's what I've got my eye on at the moment.

1 – I love these string bulb lights from Swedish company Granit. We're biding our time to see if any big work needs doing before splashing out on the house but these will be high on my list.

2Still loving Swedish Hasbeens after all this time. These are the Peeptoe Super High and are apparently the most comfortable style. Currently on sale at 30% off from the Sweden Calling shop in The Old Truman Brewery, E1.

3Love this book by Cerys Matthews, Hook, Line and Singer– songs she's collected on her travels from Tennessee to Truro. Songs you know, songs you'd forgotten you know, and old shanties to sing to your little one. Lovely to read, too.

4This one's on the dream list. Gorgeous slivers of silk and lace from Myla. Just need to shed those few (!) pregnancy pounds first. (sponsored)

5No need to diet for these. Satomi Kawakita tiny gold bar earrings with diamonds. I'm obsessed with New York Adorned and the delicate piercings by J Colby Smith. These would just do the trick.

6Essie's Clambake is still doing it for me. The colour and texture of orange jelly, it's perfect with golden summer skin.

7We have got so much still to unpack. There is...stuff...everywhere. At least Ikea has these amazing boxes for us to put it all in. 

8 My friend posted these badass Nike x Liberty Virtual Light pixel print Air Max 1s on her Instagram. Just lusty.

What have you got your eye on at the moment? 


  1. Great list! And I keep eyeing those lovely Swedish Hasbeens; I want them in red. MK

  2. I only just got the Swedish Hasbeens Papillot sandals but sadly they were not that comfortable, fingers crossed a larger size fits better because I am not willing to let them go!

  3. We used these lights for our wedding and have since been a main garden feature. I love how they can be 'styled' for both rustic-taverna parties as well as a more industrial-chic look.
