I couldn't resist posting another wishlist today - there are just so many things I am lusting after at the moment, it's actually becoming quite the problem. If you're a lover of all things pastel, cute and candy-coloured, spring is definitely the season for you, and for me usually involves a desperate desire to own, well, everything in the shops. 

I'm trying to save money so you can see my predicament here - spring is my favourite season for clothing but I also know I need to be careful about my spending. I tend to find doing wishlist posts helps me with my spending habits - instead of clicking 'buy', I can place the things I want into a blog post on here and kind of have them in a really weird way, if that makes sense? Probably not... anyway, on with the wishlist! 

First up, I spied these mint green sneaker-type affairs on the Forever 21 site and immediately fell in love. The fact they are cut out and pastel makes them girly enough to wear with cute frilly socks and dresses. I think they're fairly reasonable at just under £30 too. Next up, the bargain of this wishlist has got to be this beautiful top from River Island, which is reduced to a mere £15 in the sale. They also have it in mint and yellow, but the pink version gets my vote. Speaking of which, I also spotted this GORGEOUS candy-pink handbag on Instagram a few days ago and haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. It's like, the Elle Woods of the handbag world - it just needs a blonde-haired, tanned moi to complete the look. It'd be rude not to, right? 

Moving on, I had to put this bralet from Forever 21 in there as it's just too pretty to ignore. Whilst it's supposed to be underwear, I think this would look really cute under a big shirt with something high-waisted. It's a steal at £12.15 too. As the sun has been toying with the idea of showing itself over the past few weeks, it's time to start thinking about sunglasses. I've been wanting some round pastel pink ones for ages and these beauties from ASOS are perfection. I think they would look amazing paired with the gingham crop top from Topshop. Whilst I originally thought it was a bit too 'Little House on the Prairie' it's grown on me and I think my spring/summer wardrobe needs it. Finally, my favourite thing from this wishlist has got to be these beautiful heels from Zara. Everything from the shade of pink to the pointy toe, to the thick block heel has me drawn in. I would buy these in a heartbeat if it wasn't for the price - I just don't think I can justify spending £60 on a pair of shoes I might not wear that much... can I?
