Something For The Weekend

27 June 2014

New balls please! Or new garmz, at the very least. Yep, Wimbledon has started and with that comes my desire to wear white, yellow and green at every opportunity.

I've never been to Wimbledon and last time I played tennis I was beaten by someone who hadn't even started their GCSEs, but I'll happily watch the action from the sofa with a mountain of cream covered strawberries and a dress that I've declared 'tennis appropriate'.

Now all I need to figure out is how to get a blow-dry as good as Kim Sears'.

Happy shopping.....and keep off the grass.


1. Satin Dress by Topshop - £70

This sumptuous structured A-line dress has been a celeb hit (and therefore a sell-out) and it's finally back in stock in this new fabby colourway. Perfect for Centre Court spectating.

Buy it here.

2. Sliders by River Island - £28

They're chunky, they're bright and they're practically wearing jewellery. That's three good reasons to buy them, right there.

Buy them here.

3. Cardigan by Kenzo - £160 (reduced from £320)

Neon knitwear is underrated.

Buy it here.

4. leather Skirt by Joseph - £321 (reduced from £535) 

This skirt is very special indeed. The wrap detailing makes it dreamy, but it's the fact it's *perforated* leather that makes it so desirable. The very definition of sports luxe.

Buy it here.

5. Clutch by Milly - £93 (reduced from £185)

I have this clutch so I can truly attest to its brilliance. It is the exact colour of a tennis ball. Not big enough to actually carry any tennis balls mind you, but that's what other people are for.

Buy it here.

6. Dress by LemLem - £126 (reduced from £210)

A waist tie belt will always make a dress more flattering as you can make it truly fit YOU. We wanna be wearing this in a beach bar right about now. 

Buy it here.

7. Tee by River Island - £16

Let's cut to the chase, most of our tennis based excitement is based around strawberries and champagne. And there's no shame in that.

Buy it here.

8. Polo Shirt by Ralph Lauren - £120

Make like a real life ball girl in one of the official Wimbledon tees by Ralph Lauren. If you buy yours at the New Bond Street store then you can get it monogrammed with your initials for free.

Buy it here.

9. Wristband by Shourouk - £150

Money no object? Then why not wipe away your sweat with crystals?

Buy it here.

10. Dress by Reiss - £125 (reduced from £159)

You probably can't tell from the picture, but this dress acts like an optical illusion when on thanks to the clever chevron details and side panel placements. Killer curves guaranteed.

Buy it here.
