I wish I had a better excuse for creating this wishlist, but in all honesty I'm just bored and when I'm bored I like to shop online - its as simple as that! A few of these items are 'necessities', such as the grey Topshop coat and the black handbag, which I've convinced myself I need before heading back to uni at the end of the month. Everything else has just caught my eye and if your interested in the reasons I like these things then please do carry on reading :), apologies for the super word heavy post. 

First of all, I've decided to invest in more silver jewellery as all I seem to wear is gold. I know that this wishlist doesn't consist of any jewellery at all but I've picked out some bits and pieces that would match my new silver collection. These h&m boots have silver hardware on the heel, which caught my eye straight away. I'd wear them paired with the h&m silver detail belt and there we have it! The River island leather look skirt is another piece with silver detailing, which I'd like to pair with loose t-shirts and ankle boots.

Secondly, River Island have been right up my street lately and I have the Elle 25% discount card so its only right that I treat myself to some RI pieces. I love love love the colours of both this purple fedora and these green courts, as it's coming into winter I'll probably start drowning myself in blacks and greys so these will be good to add a bit of colour to an otherwise dull outfit. I've been on the hunt for new black jeans with a twist (leather panelling or ripped knees) for ages, and I love the style of these black two tone jeans with the leather look lower half. I'd pair these with the snake print tshirt which I picked out as I like the idea of the attached metal plate instead of jewellery. 

The last few things to mention include these mom jeans which I've had on my wishlist for months and still haven't got round to buying, and this strap back dress from Topshop which I am obviously head over heels for because of the bright cobalt colour. These strap detail dresses seem to be everywhere at the moment and I've already picked up a few from Boohoo but this one is definitely next on the hit list. I've got my hopes up that Topshop will hold a 20% student discount event soon and then I can go mad and buy everything in sight. 

Last but not least, this MAC lipstick in the shade 'vegas volt'. I've seen this colour on a million and one blogs and love it every time. I've bought thousands of coral coloured lipsticks in the hope that they'd match up to this colour but they always seem to disappoint. Us Aberdeen kids have been deprived of a MAC store for all this time, so I never really got the chance to go in and swatch it, but there is finally one opening up in town. I've got a feeling Vegas Volt will be one of many purchases when the store finally opens its doors!
