It is definitely summer here in Perth now, the last two days got up to 35°C and 37°C respectively, it’s heating up!
Although, I did wake to the news that it snowed in Tasmania overnight and Melbourne is flooding… so I guess the rest of Australia is still a little confused! It’s okay though guys, Trump says global warming ain’t real (*face palm*)!
Anyway, I can’t dwell on Trump for too long or I will implode, so I’ll change the subject.
Last weekend I was lucky enough to be invited along to the Perth Upmarket at UWA’s Winthrop Hall. I seriously underestimated the amount of time I would need to view all the stalls, and I’m sure I missed large portions of the event, but it was amazing and massive anyway.
I bought myself a few little goodies, but mostly I just collected a lot of business cards from all the gorgeous stalls, found my favourite products online and compiled them into this (and my Christmas) wishlist.
You all know how nutty I am for local/handmade/artisan products, and this Perth Upmarket contained close to 200 West Australian creatives! It was my ultimate dream.
This wishlist contains a lot of small business/artisan products which are available online, but it also has a few bigger brand products as well, and I’m going to be honest, almost everything is either fashion or accessory related!
This summer’s wishlist contains;
Towel with Strap in Marigold Floral from Cotton On Body: I saw this marigold print in store and I absolutely fell in love with it! I love that it is bright and colourful, but not over the top. Coming into summer I’ll be needing a new set of bathers, and naturally, a matching towel as well!
Tie Up Bralette Bikini Top and Bottom in Marigold Floral from Cotton On Body: This bikini set matches the towel above, and of course I’ll need a new bikini for summer. I just adore the bright yellow, yet delicate floral print, and its cute knot features.
Star Gazer Hair Pendant from Kela: I recently stumbled upon this new, Perth based business, Kela, which is taking the world by storm with their silicon, non-slip, hair charms. As soon as I saw this boho pendant online I knew it would be the perfect accessory for summer!
Prickly Pear Cactus Brooch and Cactus Brooch from One Happy Leaf: One Happy Leaf was one of the gorgeous stalls I discovered at the Perth Upmarket last weekend. You could tell from a quick perusal of the stall that the cactus products were very popular since they were almost all sold out! I’m still working towards filling my vintage Sportsgirl denim vest with brooches, and I thought some wooden cacti would be perfect!
Baby Basic Clutch in Dusty Rose from Hobo and Hatch: Hobo and Hatch were another of the amazing stalls at the Perth Upmarket. I was instantly in love with several of their pieces, and once I saw their complete range online I added a few more items to my wishlist, such as this divine clutch. Hobo and Hutch carry a wide range of their selection in a brick and mortar store in Busselton, or you can visit their studio in Dunsborough, where all the magic happens! I think this dusty rose leather clutch has such a smooth, luxurious and boho vibe to it, perfect for summer.
Mischka Matte Hair Charms in Platinum from Kela: While I think that the Kela Star Gazer Pendant above has the perfect summer boho vibe to it, I’m also in love with this triple set of platinum hair charms. While they aren’t quite as bold as the pendant, these charms have a simple elegance that will complete any outfit.
Ava and Ever Macey Beach Pants from City Beach: I’m just smitten with flowy beach pants right now. There is something so elegant and sophisticated, yet carefree and chic that makes these the ultimate piece to add to your wardrobe this summer. This pair from Ava and Ever certainly deliver all the goods!
Ava and Ever Nadine Top in Hazelnut from City Beach: Who doesn’t love a cute little crop top for summer? It’s made twice as good since it has smocking and frills on the sleeves! Best of all it is on sale at the moment too!
Delilah Frill Maxi Dress in Delilah Bloom Natural from Hobo and Hatch: A strong boho vibe has been coming through in this post, and it isn’t about to stop now! This maxi dress from Hobo and Hatch (currently sold out! *weeps softly*) is the ultimate boho gown. It is absolutely perfect in every way, I love the cut, colour, pattern, details, and I know that it would be perfect for a sunny Perth summer.
Bronze Gum Leaf Necklace from Eden Dreams: You all know I love my Aussie flora, so it won’t be much of a surprise that my heart skipped a beat when I saw Eden Dreams Woodland Collection at the Perth Upmarket. There were definitely a lot of beautiful pieces to choose from, but I think this Gum Leaf Necklace might just be my favourite.
Footloose Beach Towel in Feather from Mr Poppins + Co: I’ve always been fascinated by those beach towels which say they don’t hold sand, and they are super absorbent, and at this Perth Upmarket I saw some from West Australian designers! Their towels were so large and plush, and I completely fell in love with their Feather design.
Kahoots Oversized Bag in Feather from Mr Poppins + Co: This Kahoots Oversized Bag really does it all! It’s a one bag wonder, or perhaps even Mary Poppins own bag! It is a huge 60cm (L) X 40cm (W) X 35cm (H), so it is perfect for the beach, a picnic, the gym or even a weekend away! As a little something extra it is also made from water resistant canvas and lined with waterproof fabric.
Tassel Bag Charm in Black from Mr Poppins + Co: Since I appear to be incapable of owning a bag without a tassel on it, I thought the black Tassel Bag Charm would be the perfect way for me to dress up the Kahoots Bag, and really make it my own!
Skindinavia The Makeup Finishing Spray from Adore Beauty: I’m preparing myself for a hot summer ahead, and I’m practically out of finishing spray… I’ll need another large bottle of my favourite Skindinavia Finishing Spray if I want my makeup to last through all this sweaty weather!
Bissell BarkBath Portable Dog Bath Tool from JB HI-FI: I almost feel like this won’t work as well on my dogs, as it says it will work… but it just looks so good I’m finding it hard to resist! A portable bathing tool, where your dog practically walks away clean and dry is what my dreams are made of! Bath time in my house is absolute chaos, and the house requires even more cleaning once the dogs have dried… This would be amazing after our summertime beach swims!
RRP: Sold Out
