We're clinging onto everything that feels normal and comforting and sometimes that comes in the form of an online order delivered straight to your door.
We might still be hibernating in lockdown 3.0 but a little scroll of ASOS never hurt anyone, right?! A new year means new trends and new intentions, so a haul that dips into the latest lust-worthy items or a couple of old favourites (yes we STILL can’t stop buying loungewear) might be just the ticket for brightening up this dull ol’ month.
No matter the circumstances, there can still be happiness found in putting on an outfit you feel 10/10 in, blow-drying your hair and drinking some bubbles on the weekend.
Lockdown has shown us the items we really can’t live without and the small joys that can come from indulging in some retail therapy every now and again. No matter the circumstances, there can still be happiness found in putting on an outfit you feel 10/10 in, blow-drying your hair and drinking some bubbles on the weekend- we refuse to give up the feel-good rush that signifies the end of the working week and time to relax, albeit it still sat on the sofa. And why not spice up with the day with a brief interaction with your DPD driver and faux haul unboxing with your flatmate or unwilling S/O?!

Don’t mind me, I’m just over here trying to fill a gaping void called lockdown 15.0. Forgive me, emotions are high and therefore I need a notepad with croissants on it. I’m dedicating this round of Weekly Wants to anything that puts a smile on my face so I’ve gone for a right ol’ mix of fancy PJs (I just got deja vu from like, the whole of 2020), fancy face stuff and fancy stationery. All to be seen and appreciated by no one other than the living room. What a flaming liberty.
Lockdown 3.0 has definitely sent me on a spending spree, packages arriving at my door are the most exciting thing in my life right now. I am loving neutral tones (as per), so I’ve picked up a few sweatshirts and long-sleeved tops in brown/beige shades. I also found the cutest bag on Zara and just had to buy it! Gives me Balenciaga on a budget vibes. Tik Tok heavily influences my shopping habits and there’s a cloud jumper I’ve seen doing the rounds so I purchased that baby once I tracked it down on ASOS.
I love this little set by & Other Stories and after buying some lovely jumpers from there before Christmas, you just can’t argue with the quality of their garments. Super cute but also cosy, ready for when we MIGHT leave the house and see people in the next three months….
Like most of us, I am still living in knitwear and loungewear and I must say have been really tempted to buy a few new pieces I’ve spotted recently, especially as it’s been SO chilly lately. I’m trying not to go too crazy though as by the time we’re let out in the real world it will probably be Spring and we will be shedding our layers again!
I’m not normally one for spending money in the New Year, but I’ve got nothing else to spend my money on this January so let’s go wild. I still need to buy some furnishings for my new home and sort out my spring wardrobe so there’s a few things I’ve got my eye on! This cloud coat from skinnydip, I have the strawberry one already and it is the warmest thing ever. You can’t have too many statement coats, can you?! Vase because I’m manifesting being brought loads of flowers in 2021. And lots of clothes and accessories for all the fun places I’m going to be going.
I’ve barely been shopping at all during the pandemic but on the occasions when something does catch my eye, I like to make sure there’s longevity to it and that I’ll immediately get my wear out of it! Slippers, socks and comfy underwear definitely fit into that category and are much appreciated as we carry on working from home. Nice top half items are also justifiable in my eyes as you can never have enough Zoom appropriate items to hand!
