World, meet my dream pay-day purchases. It’s almost the holidays, so I should technically be saving money for all the beach-side beers I plan on drinking in just over a month’s time. However, as a fashion fundi (and fashion assistant at MC who spends a lot of time looking at the nicest things available), I can’t stop myself wanting to buy a whole lot of gorgeous new things as soon as the dosh appears in my bank account.

Whilst it’s unlikely I’ll actually get them all, here’s a few of the things on my (ever-growing) wishlist..

1.This skirt

This skirt is not only the latest in SA design as it was shown last week at the Style by SA collections at SA Fashion Week. (ICYMI, look here.) It’s also absolutely perfect for summer styling, and appeals to all my stripey desires.

2.This adorable basket bag 

I haven’t shut up about basket bags, for good reason, as they’re going to be a total hit this summer. Why not start early and grab this wooden one from our old faithful, Zara?

3.These earrings

Local jewellery is peaking in all the right ways this year. These earrings combine mixed metals (win!) and an elegant shape for everyday and occasion-wear.

4. These sneakers

If these aren’t the best sneakers around at the moment, well then I don’t know which ones are. A fantastic colour combo of cream and navy mixed with subtle logo and clean lines.

5. These sunnies

For hiding your face in the best way possible, I’m all about these shades.

6. Bonus:  This cute pot

Lastly, for all the gorgeous blooms I’ll be picking, this flower pot is a fun and cheeky way to display them!
