My favourite Spring/Summer wishlist items

The Lusting Life, My favourite spring/summer wishlist items 2019

As we face into a glorious heatwave this Easter weekend, what better time to pull together my round-up of the Spring/ Summer pieces I’ve been eyeing up recently…


My first pick for spring/summer is this gorgeous, jewel-toned kaftan dress from H&M. Thrown on with a pair of chunky sandals & teamed with a round jute bag this is the perfect dressed-up yet casual outfit to see you through the seasons.

Kurt Geiger

A long time favourite of mine, Kurt Geiger is a brand I always find myself gravitating towards when it comes to boot hunting season. And for me, it’s always boot hunting season! Come rain or shine, I always find myself reaching for a good ol’ pair of boots.

And ohh what a pair! I’ve had my eye on these beauties for a while, but I couldn’t quite come to terms with the eye-watering cost. So, these have remained on my wishlist for nearly a year now.

My lusting hasn’t ceased though, so once these come back in stock I think the Carvela Skant boots are the perfect designer dupes that will soon be my new ‘must wear with everything‘ purchase.

& Other Stories

This stunning leopard swimsuit brings a heavy dose of print to any beach or poolside plans this summer. If worn tucked in to a skirt or pair of denim shorts, it doubles up as a great top/ bodysuit option too!


Yep…I’m jumping on the Instagram bandwagon! I don’t know if it’s just the overwhelming amount of online hype & the number of influencers wearing these recently, or if I do just genuinely want a pair?!

Either way, count me in! Subliminally brainwashed or not, there is no denying that these vegan- friendly babies are beautifully simplistic & look oh so cool for spring/summer…even if they’re a tad pricey!

French company Veja pride themselves on being an ethical company who use recyclable materials to make their shoes. Which in turn, helps to tackle the current sustainability & ethical issues in fashion.

My favourites are the Veja campo leather sneakers which feature a neutral colour-scheme which means they can be teamed with any outfit. I plan on wearing these on repeat, teamed with floaty summer dresses and my Topshop military shacket that’s still going strong after 2 years!


Topshop is my ‘go to’ for most things nowadays, from basics to more trend-led pieces. I also think it’s fairly priced for a high-street brand and as for choice, each piece usually comes in a range of colours.

If you’re anything like me, you may have picked up their ‘cult’ satin midi skirt in a fair few colours already throughout the year so far. And with the addition of even more colours & styles for spring/summer, this trend shows no sign of slowing down.

I’ve worn mine with chunky knits & boots all A/W and plan on keeping these in my spring/summer rotation, teaming them instead with trainers & an oversized tee for…well probably all of summer! I’m finding myself torn between buying the ash-toned satin midi skirt above, or the ombre, tiger print dream below. Decisions, decisions… at under £30 each is it so wrong to get both!


Continuing the animal print theme, this stunning printed dress from Oysho is on my ‘must buy’ list too. Teamed with simple white trainers, or given a boho edge with military boots or a trusty pair of Dr Martens, this is the ideal ‘go to’ outfit.

Just add a slouchy jumper on top to see you through spring, or team with chunky sandals for the warmer summer months.

Well, that’s my round up so far of all my spring/summer wishlist items I’m currently drooling over. Let me know which item/s caught your eye in the comments below. Thanks for reading!
