Regardless of the actual British weather, i live in hope when it comes to our Summer.
More often than not that means planning lovely summery outfits, that you never get to wear as the weather just doesn't co-operate. But after years of sufferance I've become a bit more British Summer savvy.
With the help of Lyst i have made the most wonderful capsule of pieces that i want to buy for the coming season. It includes items that would make the most versatile, wearable summer wardrobe ever, leaving my disdain for Old Blighty and mother nature a thing of the past.
I've mentioned Lyst before(here), but i just find it such a great shopping/planning tool. If, like me, your budget doesn't allow you to buy your whole summer wardrobe in one go, you can just add it to your Lyst. In my case i am currently collating my Summer Wish Lyst, which i ahve to say i am absolutely loving right now! It has some amazing pices that i am coveting and, yep, i feel i may have made the perfect UK summer capsule wardrobe. There's still a couple of items i may add over the next few weeks, but hopefully i shall be picking off my items piece by piece to purchase.
The other thing i love is that it tells you if your items go on sale.. whats better than finding one of your coveted gems on sale.. Good right?!
So whats on my Summer Wish Lyst?
I feel i've covered off most bases and kept with a very clear colour scheme, making everything inter-changable.
Go take a look, there are some absolute beauties on there, but to give you an idea, here's a few of ma faves from my Lyst.
Denim, stripes and neutrals are all a running theme. Then theres a couple of 'Hero Items' like that bright colour pop bag, or the perfect floral dress, all to make a rather wonderful summer.
I love the New in section too, which is where i've found A LOT of my summer wish Lyst pieces, it knows what i like which is rather handy, rather than having to scour 50 gazillion items.
The other reason i love to Lyst is to hunt for particular items (Lately its been a navy blazer firstly, so handy to have and also a khaki jumpsuit that will satisfy both my love of khaki and jumpsuits!) Lyst enables me to search tons of retailers without having to pull my normal trick of having approx 128 tabs open on my browser (my husband goes mad, He thinks its ridiculous having that many tabs open, and i have to say, the man probably has a point). So verry very useful as i've actually found both!
Have you ever used Lyst to help you shop? I honestly can't recommend it enough.
