Gestuz Summer Wishlist

I first came across this brand on Freja Wewer’s Instagram account, and whilst I don’t love everything they do, they now and again bring out some really amazing collections or pieces that mix easily into your wardrobe but provide an on-trend update. Their high summer pieces for this year will do just that and here I have gathered a few of the best bits and the shopping links are below.

Where I get the basics

Whilst shopping around can be fun to discover new brands and styles, for some staples it’s good to know some fail safe brands that just nail those pieces. Below area few examples of these which I wanted to share:

T-Shirts = Sunspel

Why? Well they don’t become misshapen over time, they’re super soft and I buy the mens tees as they have a higher crew neck which I prefer.

Jeans= Re/Done

You know Levis styles which you dream of coming across in vintage stores, but in reality they never fit quite how you imagined? Well Re/Done takes those jeans and repurpose them so they do fit just right in that 90s inspired style. On the pricey side, but a good pair of jeans will last you many years to come!

Fine Knits= Uniqlo

Really soft knits in all the colours you could wish for, and at a price you can’t complain about. I choose the mens extra fine merino wool sweaters because again I prefer the high crew neck style.

Undies= COS

If like me, you hate underwired bras with heavy padding then COS underwear might be for you. They mix from really pretty, delicate lace undies to just super comfy, everyday cotton sets, so all is taken care of.

There’s a sale at Reformation!!!!!

Here are some of the best pieces that have now become up to 50% off.

Reformation do increase the reductions almost week on week, so if you willing to risk waiting I think some things will be further reduced to 70% off- but as a warning the sale sells pretty rapidly so your favourite pieces may be gone by the final sale!

Preparing for Autumn with new pieces…

I’m back in Manchester ready for another year of uni, and whilst Autumn is still a month away I’m ready to start looking at clothes for my favourite time of year. In this post I’ve rounded up some of my favourite pieces from across the high street. I’m taking a trip to Amsterdam at the beginning of September so I’ve included pieces I’d love to be packing for my trip. All the shopping links are below.

Ganni New Season

Ganni is a new favourite of mine, I bought one of their dresses in a deep green print just before Christmas last year after coming across the brand in Liberty and I’ve been an admirer since then. Their clothes are easy to wear everyday, but have a quirkiness either in their structure or print that makes them altogether distinctive from anywhere else. Their new season looks to be just as good as the last, with plenty of leopard print- a big yes as far as I’m concerned- and cute sweats and tees that slip so easily into your wardrobe.

Here are a few of my favourite pieces all available at Ganni.com

Brand Discovery: SIR the label

This Australian brand has a contemporary feel, making quite minimal yet interesting pieces that create understated, cool looks. A selection of dresses, separates and a staple leather jacket is the brands formula. Each season’s collection is normally quite small which I really like because it creates quite an exclusive, small designer feel. The colour palette tends to be in quite muted tones, which works well for me as these make up most of my wardrobe so the pieces easily mix into outfits. It is quite a high price range, but the fabrics are beautiful and the designs true to the brands own aesthetic which makes the clothes feel special. I have the Brooke wrap skirt and long sleeve top, as well as the Gigi dress which are favourites to wear on holiday and to parties in the summer. Here a few of my favourite pieces and the link to the site is below.
