This month I am fully immersed in all things summer and holidays, therefore my latest #shwishlist follows the same theme.

Because I travel alot throughout the year, especially during show months, I like to spend my summer holidays visiting different parts of the UK. My holiday wardrobe always contains a loose knit, a straw hat and a cashmere scarf, all items which see me through our unpredictable British weather.  

For UK breaks I like to travel in style, allowing me to take luggage I wouldn't normally when travelling abroad. With many of my friends losing much loved designer cases from flight to flight, I leave the luxury for the UK.  This beautiful structured briefcase tote from AG by Anoesjcka Gianotti, is made from Italian leather and  obviously designed with the business traveller in mind as the bag is guaranteed to take you from the office to your hotel in style.

I am thrilled to have discovered knitwear brand, Needle completely by accident while I was searching for a birthday present for a friend who is a tailor. I wanted to find a pair of needle and thread earrings and instead at the top of my search was the Needle Boutique. I couldn't resist perusing the website and I found beautiful wearable pieces with a minimal and timeless feel. The Kos jumper is an easy to wear casual summer knit, perfect for days when you need a lighter layer.

Every summer wardrobe needs a pair of Aspiga sandals. Designed in the UK and handmade in Africa and India, the Aspiga collection includes fabulous leather sandals, bags and flip-flops. My favourite pair are these elegant White embellished sandals.

Sunscreen is a vital holiday essential and the benefits of opting for an Aloe Vera base are for the natural qualities it possesses. The Egyptians called Aloe Vera the "plant of immortality" and since then it has been used to target a variety of skin concerns from sunburn to psoriasis and eczema. With Forever Living's sunscreen it not only protects the skin from the ageing and damaging effects of the sun's UVA and UVB rays, it also acts as a protective layer on the skin, helping to replenish moisture. 

Vinnie Day's collection is free spirited, understated and chic. One of my friends posted a picture of their Vinnie Day piece on instagram and I immediately went to check out the website.  One of my favourite collections is aptly named 'On Holiday', full of designs including shells, leaves, flowers and butterflies. These piece are designed to work with a kaftan on the beach or finish the bikini look for added poolside glam. I have many favourites but the Square Interlinked Bangles caught my eye. If I was on a shoot I would style them with a black plunge neckline one-piece, hair up in a loose chignon, natural make-up and a pair of gold rimmed aviators. Keeping the look flirtatious yet elegant, contemporary and original, words that also describe all of Vinnie Day's jewellery.

I love the retro-inspired beachwear from Pistol Panties with flattering cuts and streamlined swimwear.  This is swimwear with an edge.  
I am currently coveting the 'Chantelle' a cropped bustier bikini. With it's sharp style it can easily double as a top. Wear with capri pants or high waisted shorts.

To allow you a closer view of these covetable pieces, I have pinned everything I have featured to my #shwishlist pinterest board. If you would like to recommend a brand or item, email: or tweet me with the hashtag #shwishlist.
