Summer wish list

I can’t seem to discuss summer dressing with friends and colleagues without using quote fingers. As in: I’ve packed away my winter clothes, and got my ‘summer’ things out of storage. But that’s okay with me – having left days of the dangerous heat index behind me (in Virginia you get warnings on the news not to engage in physical exertion outdoors on days when the heat and humidity are high). I like the fact that in Glasgow there are only subtle differences between autumn and winter, winter and spring, spring and summer. I like being able to simply replace cashmere cardigans with cotton ones.

However, there is enough of a difference between the seasons that one must go shopping for new season clothing, so here’s my wish list for summer 2009:

Ignes Handbag
I’ve had my eye on this ethical bag maker for a while, and the new Josephine hobo is just what I’m looking for. They make it in a lovely aqua colour, perfect for summer.

Black linen trousers
I could spend £45 on these at Long Tall Sally, or I could get some from New Look for £15. Or be greedy and buy them both, which means less ironing.

White pintuck blouse
Again, I’m faced with a choice: White Company or Wallis – the white company version is on sale at the moment, so they’re both the same price. Being a lover of bargains, I’ll probably go with the former.

Kenneth Jay Lane apple pendant
I only recently discovered the ASOS outlet – I love this apple pendant, available in pretty pastel colours.

French Sole travel slippers
My favourite maker of ballet slippers has just introduced a line of travel slippers that fold in half, perfect for tucking into a handbag.

Short sleeve cardigan
This cardigan from the Pure Collection is a perfect example of how cashmere just makes everything more lovely.

Pedro Garcia sandals
I’m looking for sandals that will be both attractive and comfortable, as I’ll be wearing them to walk around Glasgow all summer, and when we go on our holiday to Morocco, the dusty streets of Fes. These sandals from Yoox will fit the bill perfectly.
