January Wishlist

So this month I've started to save money (new years resolutions 'n'all). I think currently this month I've spent money on bottles of water every morning before college (55p each), a Subway cookie (50p), 2 pasties at Greggs (£2) and I think that's it! However, it's my mum's birthday next week and she's 50 so I'm going to have to fork out about £20 (a lot for me) for her present and buy cards etc. I'm also going to go into Manchester tomorrow which will cost me a large sum of £4.50 (I hate having to be an 'adult' now). 
Never-the-less I think I'm doing pretty well at saving this month, I would've usually bought at least a MAC lipstick and some form of clothing by now, but nope...still going strong. 

During my measly 10 days of a spending ban I have thrived over wanting a few things and I thought I'd share them to you...you never know my boyfriend or my mum might read this and treat me to something. Unlikely.

This months wants but can't haves.

1. ASOS PETITE Fluffy Cocoon Coat in Mint. The good ol' boyfriend coat is definitely my temptress this month, and last month. After seeing Tanya Burr buy a pink number in Vlogmas I have been wanting one extremely badly and after making the mistake of spending all of my Christmas money, I am now penny-less and coat-less. This coat is gorgeous and in a pastel shade which is in this spring. I feel like a pop of colour would brighten up all of my monochrome outfits and this particular coat is from the petite section so it won't look too over-sized and wash me out. This coat is £85 and although that's a lot of money, it's bloody good for a coat. 

2. Chella Long Sleeve Collared Boxy Top In Baby Pink.  Missguided is definitely my favourite website to shop from at the moment. Their clothes are fashionable and affordable. Baby Pink is definitely in for Spring and I love the colour as it's girly but add a pair of washed out denim jeans or disco pants and bam, you look fab! I'm also a fan of collars because they look great with jumpers, cardigans, jackets but also without anything. This top is for an affordable £19.99 and I think it would be a great started for a few outfits. 

3. Petite Blackwatch Check Leggings in Green. How have I not bought these yet? Tartan has definitely been my favourite trend for Autumn/Winter, although I was a late starter at it. Topshop do the best quality leggings I have ever bought, they're not too sheer, they're figure flattering and they're so comfortable! I love the petite section for my leggings and jeans as I'm quite small so it's hard to find bottoms that aren't too long, but the petite section is just right. These leggings are only £20 and I'm so close to purchasing a pair. 

4. Pink Chunky Buckle Cut Out Boots. Oh my god. I saw these in River Island just after new year when I went in to find a new purse and they caught my eye straight away. How cute are they? I love cut out boots but I still don't own any and I think these were pretty much made for me. I think they'd look great with a pair of jeans, a plain white t-shirt and frilly socks. These are £45, which I think for a high-street brand is really good compared to the prices of Topshop boots. 

5. Marcia. Fully Loaded Cross Necklace from Regal Rose. This is currently sold out but maybe if I pray it'll come back and maybe have a sale on it? I dream! I love grungy jewelry like this one and I'm a huge fan of silver. 

6. Motel Sapphire Playsuit in Tonal Floral Maroon.  I have always loved Motel clothing but I can never afford it! How beautiful is this playsuit? All the cuts are in the right places and it looks extremely figure flattering. Paired with some black opaque tights and some grungy boots this would look amazing. It's currently £45 but lets pray, for my sake that it goes down in price and then I can purchase it. 

I hope this post interested you. Maybe I gave you a few ideas of what to buy. If I have, buy me some too! I kid. What are you wanting but not able to have this month? Comment below and tell me!

Lots of Love
