Currently Coveting


After an eternal winter, it seems like we've nosedived straight into summer which has been a little disconcerting because it's not natural (hello global warming) and also a little disappointing because it means I haven't been able to wear much of my transitional wardrobe which includes some of my favorite jackets and trench coats. Well there's nothing I can do about that so I've been looking at things I'd like to wear when it's hot.

1. NYC Underground Frayed Edge Floppy Straw Hat
My face can never get enough sun protection and if I'm not using my UV umbrella, I'm all about a good stylish wide brimmed hat.

2. SEA Ruffled Broderie Anglaise Cotton Top 
The boho meets retro vibe of this breezy top is so appealing and it'll look equally cute paired with jeans, shorts or skirts.

3. Rebecca Minkoff Mixed Floral Silk Square Scarf
I always carry a scarf in my bag during the summer so I have something to throw over my shoulders wherever the air conditioning is cranked up to frigid. Loving the vintage chic styling of this one and it happens to be on sale!

4.  J. Crew Wide Leg Cropped Chambray Pant
I'm really into the ease of culotte style pants and I can't believe I still don't have a pair in chambray yet.

5. Soludos Ciao Bella Espadrille Flat
Charming and cheeky and the blush pink color is so pretty.

6. Warby Parker Nancy Sunglasses
Tiny sunglasses may be on trend now but I'm all about the coverage oversized sunnies.

7. Monica Vinader Linear Bead Friendship Bracelet
I'm such a fan of elegant and timeless jewelry like this.

8. BaubleBar Elysian Hoop Earrings
These embellished  hoop earrings are such an effortless way to add sparkle to any outfit.

9. See by Chloé Polina Scalloped Wallet
Scallops are one of my favorite design details and this compact wallet is perfect for smaller purses.

10. H&M Tasseled Shopper
This cute and roomy tote looks ideal for summer.

  1. I want those pants. They look so comfortable.

  2. Morning Rowena! I know what you mean, is the same also here in Cagliari and you think today rains lol! Btw, this stuff is all so adorable and now I just want everything too! The top would be so nice on you together with the pants, the espadrilles and the sunnies. Have a good day dear! xo

  3. Stunning selection!
    Have a nice week!

  7. I love that wide brim hat, I've recently read that every additional inch of a brim hat minimalism the risk of skin cancer significantly. I'm all in when it comes to wide brim straw hats, I even plan to write a whole post about why I love them so much. I have quite a few of them, they can cost practically nothing and they can look so stylish!

    The second blouse is so beautiful and romantic.

    That scarf looks wonderful and I also like to carry a scarf in my bag. They are light and they can often come in handy.

    Those cropped wide pants look so stylish. I really like the sunnies, the bracelets, the shoes and the bag as well. Excellent choices! Have a great day!

  8. Oh you knoooow I always love your Currently Coveting edits! A couple of standouts for me from this one include the embroidered top (SO pretty) and the Monica Vinader friendship bracelet. Literally my favourite British jewellery brand :)

  9. I'm loving that shopper bag from H&M

  10. The tot bag excites me, dear! xoxo

  11. So hard to pick just one they entire selection rocks have a lovely weekend.

  12. Nice list Rowena! Love the square neck top and cute sunglasses! I noticed the small sunglasses trend, but I'm all about oversized sunglasses too! Have a great weekend!

  13. I love a good hat and really need to upgrade mine. I never thought I'd like culottes but they're growing on me. A chambray pair sounds great!

  14. I know very frustrating that there is no transitional weather any more and yes scary. Wow all these items together would be a great outfit! And that tassel bag is gorgeous looks too expensive for H&M.

  17. Oooh I love the cushion and the espadrilles in particular - I would love to decorate my house with items like the former, and need the latter for when I go to live in Spain for three months lol.

    Have a great weekend!
