5 on Friday | What to buy this week

Happy Friday, everyone! Here’s some shopping inspiration to get you through the weekend!

pink trench coat

Pink trenchcoat

I’ve wanted a pale pink trenchcoat all year, but the Boden one I wanted was out of my price range, and all of the other versions I’ve found so far have sold out before I could get to them: boo! I really like this one from ChicWish, however, which looks to be the right shade of pink, and also the right shape – I really like that waterfall shape, which is something a little different from the many other trenchcoats I currently own!

Sugarhill Boutique Maya dress

Sugarhill Boutique Maya dress

This might just be the dress I’ve been looking for. I’ve been searching for dresses that can be worn casually for such a long time now (and TALKING about it for even longer, it seems…), but so far I’ve not been having a whole lot of luck with that search. This dress, however, looks like exactly the kind of quirky/casual mix I’ve been looking for: maybe.

green jersey dress

Boden ‘Rosalie’ jersey dress

Still on the subject of casual dresses (I’ll change that subject one of these days, I promise. Or… not.), I also love Boden’s Rosalie jersey dress. This comes in three different colours, and I really like the knot-front detail, which I find really flattering to wear.

chevron print midi skirt

Dorothy Perkins chevron print scuba skirt 

This black and white chevron print skirt is also available in black, and, to be perfectly honest, that’s the colour I’d probably buy it in, purely because I know I’d get much more use out of it. This print version, however, is a little more interesting, and should still be pretty versatile, so I wouldn’t kick it out of the closet, either!


red ponte pencil skirt

Red belted ponte pencil skirt

I recently got rid of a red pencil skirt, having been finally forced to admit that the fit wasn’t right for me, and I just wasn’t wearing it because of that. Aside from the issues with fit, however, I loved that skirt, and would have worn it much more often if it had worked for my shape: which makes me wonder if this one might be worth a shot instead?

Have a great weekend!
