Loving Wishing Sold - Confessions of a Shopaholic



In between the 'Things to do in Tokyo with children part 2', I thought I would share my latest loving, wishing, sold installment - don't tell S ...

1. Yannika (and Mister Zimi) dresses. I came across these recently thanks to a friend's recommendation and I'm hooked! Such an easy style of dress to wear and so comfortable! Loving the bright colours and patterns and I'm a huge fan of the dropped back hem. Warning, the Yannika dresses run short and do shrink a little in the wash so size up whereas the Zimi dresses are pretty true to size I've found.

2.  Mister Zimi Swim. I love their dresses and thanks to my beloved J Crew one piece needing to be binned last week and Zimi's their recent Australia Day sale, I snapped up these Bora Bora bathers after umming and ahing for awhile. I was initially put off by the style as I thought they wouldn't be suitable for a D cup chest until I actually read the description and discovered they have a built in shelf bra. They haven't arrived yet but I'm hoping they will be here in time for our pool day on Australia Day.

3. Monogram anything and everything, give me all the monogrammed accessories! I need a decent phone cover so really this is a necessity and I will no doubt pull the trigger and buy it in the next week or so. Loving the navy with blind initials from The Daily Edited.

4. And still on the monogram love, how gorgeous are these key rings from Neue Blvd! Planning to buy one for a girlfriend for her birthday (ideal for the person who has everything) and I'm pretty sure there will also be one in the order for me as the tassel one I have from Country Road has seen better days.

5. Lilybod pink lemonade tights  are definitely my next purchase... after I stick to my treadmill commitment for a few more weeks to make them worthwhile. My sister swears by Lilybod tights for comfort and no bunching/rising. Helps they have some cute prints/styles too.

6. Miann & Co grey cross hatch foot pouf (bean bag). I love the style and versatility of these poufs and have been wanting one for awhile to use in our lounge room as both a foot pouf and for the boys to sit on. They are huge - it comfortably holds both boys. The grey cross hatch one I bought was half price and is sold out but they still have a navy/grey or blush/grey option.

7. State of Escape neoprene bag. I've been on the lookout for a 'mum bag' after doing a huge clearout of my heavy leather Oroton bags that just don't get used anymore with my entourage of two little boys. A few friends have bought and love them and SSG's (Sydney Shop Girl) bag comparison here really sold me on its practicality. I like the look of the navy and grey and am planning a self gift of it soon - stay tuned.

8. More monogram ... this pouch is everything! I bought it in the limited peony pink with blind initials from The Daily Edited for myself for Christmas and haven't looked back since ditching a huge wallet for it. I love I can grab it out of my bag on the go and it holds cards, cash, phone, car key, pen and lipstick. Perfect for kindy drop off and quick errands when I don't need to lug everything else with me.

9. Neue Blvd again. These Celebrate white glasses are on my homewares list ... once the laundry is done - could be waiting awhile.
