My Latest Fashion Wishlist (Fashion Friday)

This weeks Fashion Friday post is going to be my latest fashion wishlist because I've noticed quite a few items that I'd absolutely love to have in my wardrobe. 

The first item on my wishlist is the ASOS Cardigan With Kimono Sleeves. I utterly adore both the colour and the shape, it's something that you can get a lot of wear out of and style in many different ways. I only just got into the kimono trend last year and I thought it was more of a summertime piece but this item has a lot of potential in terms of creating many different looks focusing on one feature. You can either get this kimono in burgundy or khaki but I think that this colour is the more flattering of the two. I would personally style this with either black leggings and a light grey cami or with 'mom jeans' and a black crop top but the possibilities are endless.

Next up in my wishlist is the Milk It Vintage High Waisted Mom Jeans With Ripped Knees And Roll Hem. I mentioned mom jeans whilst I was explaining how I would style the kimono and I just thought I'd add a pair to my wishlist because I utterly adore. There was a similar pair by Milk It on the same site but they were black and not ripped, I love them too but these look amazing. Mom jeans are just so relaxed looking and casual so they can be worn for meeting with friends or running errands, either way they are easy to style. Crop tops or baggy t-shirts, as simple as they are, can look fantastic with a pair of these jeans. I also love how the jeans look with Converses, it's just such a brilliant way to play up the relaxed look.

I've been admiring the Sun Moon and Stars dress for a LONG time, I didn't realise that they do a jumpsuit version. The dress version seemed a little bit short for my taste but I suppose I could wear thicker tights. The Motel Unitard Jumpsuit in Sun Moon and Stars is probably my favourite item on the Motel Rocks site and I say that even though I've checked out all of their stock. I have a leather jacket that would compliment this look, it's not something I would wear at work but it would be great for a night out. I would also love to pair this with a cute skinny belt, in either black, silver, green or burgundy. Also, this item has a scoop neck and a plunge back style, I've been wanting to buy something with that sort of style for some time now so I think this piece would be great to add to my wardrobe. There is one issue with this item though, the fact that it's plunge back means that finding a bra that works would be difficult.

Another thing from Motel Rocks that I adore is the Motel Sally Mae Shift Dress in Green Irridescent. It's a glitzy take on the t-shirt dress which I love anyway but the addition of sequins makes this item look party ready with minimal effort. There are three colour options; black, burgundy and green. I prefer the green version but all three look great so I'd probaly love to have all three. You don't really have to style this look up, it just requires black shoes and perhaps a simple necklace. The MOTEL DELUXE Gabby Sequin Plunge Back Dress in Iridescent Green is very similar only it has a plunge back and long sleeves. That choice also has the three colour options so really it just depends on taste but the sequined look is fantastic for parties. I wouldn't recommend wearing anything too light as a jacket though because the sequins would probably click the material.

Any items you have your eye on?
