A Colourful Summer Wishlist

This is a sponsored post

It's summer! Sort of. Scotland keeps going through day-long heatwaves followed by rain and a drop in 10 degrees the next day. However, I've still been compiling a list of summery clothes that I've been lusting after. I like to think my picks are quite sensible - being relatively covered up with trousers and jumpsuits which work for drearier days, but using light materials that are still lovely and breezy when the temperature climbs.

My true love right now is jumpsuits, particularly those with a wide or loose leg. Warehouse are killing it in the jumpsuit department right now (just look at them all!) and I'm particularly obsessed with the yellow! (It went out of stock before I linked everything but it looks equally gorgeous in navy) I can imagine wearing it for summer evening drinks, maybe even dressing it down with my favourite pink trainers for a cool colour clash. For a more casual look I love how the wavy pattern on the navy jumpsuit is super funky while still being quite an understated print. And I think the other love here is pretty obvious - I'm lusting after so many striped trousers! I've had a pair from Zara for about a year now and have worn them to death, so I'm really keen to add one (or a few) more pairs to my wardrobe. I'm a bit smitten with the pink culottes, I can really see them pairing with clothes I already have!

We all know I'm a sucker for a printed or slogan tee, so obviously I want to bring a few summery options into rotation. This striped Warehouse number reminds me of deckchairs - what screams summer more than that?! The same goes for the rainbow stripe Topshop tee, I love how the slogan is quite minimal, and ditto for the little hearts on the pink tee!

When it comes to summer shoes I'm a bit of a novice - I live in ankle boots and trainers 99% of the time. And while trainers can totally be a summer shoe, I really want to branch out into wearing more sandals! I love the look of these blue Topshop sandals, the colour is to die for and I really like a chunky shoe that is still practical. Speaking of chunky, the Topshop trainers I've featured definitely fit that bill. I'm a little dubious that they won't look ridiculous on my size 3 feet, but the colourway is stunning and I'm keen to try them on! I think they'll pair so well with the wide leg clothes I want, elongating the leg a little while still keeping the look casual. I probably have enough coloured bags but... look how cute that yellow bucket bag is. I didn't love the bucket bag trend at first but even I can see myself swinging this one around - I love that it has a cross-body strap!

So there you go - hopefully I shall be donning a lot of colour and stripes this summer! I'm really getting into colour clashing (it's so simple when you use colourful accessories) so it's fair to say I'm going to be placing a couple orders soon. Look below for a full list and links to the items!
