Lust List: River Island

(click for larger image)

Happy Monday guys!
Today I thought I'd share with you some of my absolute favourites from River Islands new Spring range.
You may have seen me tweet about it yesterday, as I popped into their Bullring store whilst on my travels and it got me sooo excited for spring and getting out of my winter wardrobe!
Also, I decided there is no better time to share all these lovely things with you, as tonight for two hours only- 7-9pm, River Island are offering an amazing 20% off online, HOW GOOD! Definitely a good way to perk up a Monday don't you think?!

My two favourites from the first look are the fedora and the over sized blazer, which I think are amazing bold statement pieces that can jazz up even the dullest of outfits. Here I have teamed it with just a cool graphic tee, and their Amelie jeans, which I own a pair of, and let me say, they are amazing. Such a great colour and fit, I'm going to be getting a 2nd pair without a doubt. I've toughened this up with some chunky boots here. but this can be worn with a more feminine practical shoe like a ballet flat.

The second look I've created is definitely one for the summer, but this jacket got me in the mood for the warmer months! The white trousers are an absolute staple when the weather gets hotter as they are classic and look great just teamed with all white or just some black basics and a red lip for something classy but easy. The feather bag, I thought was just the absolute cutest, here I've chosen the lemon, however it is available in some other colours.

Look three's favourites are the blouse and the wide brimmed hat. I was completely in love with the colour and I think it works best with lower key pieces like these ripped jeans and chunky boots. The polka dot blouse, for me, is one of those things you can just wear over and over to create different looks. It would look just a cool tucked into a skirt with a heavily embellished necklace for an evening look, or with some black leather pants and a colour pop heel.

Finally, look four is my favourite, and if my bank balance would allow it, I would get the entire outfit. This embellished jacket is absolutely gorgeous, and because it's mainly monochrome will look great dressed with just some skinny jeans, however here I have chosen to team it with some leather look pants- as they are always my lifesavers when I'm feeling lazy or have last minute plans. I've picked out the fluoro yellow in the collar embellishment and carried it through with the bag and the slippers to keep it all tied together. A crisp white shirt is perfect for this look, as it leaves the jacket and the accessories to do the talking.

Okay, it is now 7pm, so I'm hitting the post button!
Happy shopping, and let me know what you guys buy! :)
