Before I discuss this months wishlist with you all I have some news for my readers. Those of you who follow my blog on any of my social networking sites will already know but I also want to share my great news with my Bloglovin‘ readers. I am thrilled, and still overwhelmed, as Penny and Polaroids has been shortlisted in the top three blogs for Best Fashion Blog for OohLaLa Magazine’s Blog Awards. OohLaLa is a thriving magazine here in Ireland and the award nominations saw many of Irelands amazing blogs compete for shortlisting. The shortlisted 12 (three per category, mine being Best Fashion Blog) were chosen by both public nominations and a judging panel. I also want to take this opportunity to thank all my readers who nominated me, I cannot thank you all enough nor can I express how much this means to me, I could never have imagined that in less than year I would be up against Ireland’s leading bloggers for Best Fashion Blog. Thank you all kindly! The awards take place on the 13th of August so keep an eye on my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts for snaps from the night. And now for my Wishlist..

Bright colours do not usually secure residence in my monthly Wishlists. However, it being August and all that jazz, my affinity for leather and neutral colours has been overridden by teal and yellow. I must admit, as someone who wears very little colour, I love yellow clothes. Yellow is definitely a hot colour this AW’13. I have ordered a gorgeous yellow dress that I cannot wait to receive and I am lusting after this yellow cami top from Asos, a steal at €13. Topshop also have a very similar one. This teal leather fold over clutch from Topshop is also a favourite of mine at the moment, a colourful clutch is a great addition to a neutral outfit.

Speaking of what I love most (I can’t stray too much), I of course also have an affinity for both Tshirt dresses and white, particularly white dresses but any white clothes really. I spotted this Warehouse dress on Asos and immediately fell in love. It is the perfect style dress for me. I picked mine up in Warehouse during the week but for those of you who are from Ireland and wishing to order one you can order from Asos as Warehouse do not seem to post to Ireland. I love the silhouette of this dress but what I adore most is the material and patterned detail columns which are not easily visible in the picture. You really must see the dress itself to appreciate it but it is really beautiful.

Sigerson Morrison is a recently discovered favourite of mine, I had heard of the brand before but had never really looked at the collection until I discovered their Instagram when Anouska Proetta Brandon wore a pair of these Brielle heels in Black. I love the style and they are quite unique. The nude colour pictured above is my favourite. I can already think of so many outfits to wear them with, they’re beautiful. Astrid & Miyu is yet another brand I recently discovered and I really like. I have an old wishbone chain that is slightly tarnished at the moment but I still love it I love the idea of a wishbone for jewellery, which is why I was so excited to find this really cute wishbone ring from Astrid & Miyu, it’s a gorgeous pale gold.

I hope you all have a great long weekend..
