Editor’s favourite products from May 2019
The last month of autumn is done and dusted, but here's what we picked up along the way.
1. Sol Sana boots
Where to buy: THE ICONIC
Discount: 25% OFF thousands of winter styles
Heading into winter means it's time for a new pair of boots and these Sol Sana Lori boots have completely stolen my heart... and my wallet. While these boots carry a little bit of a heavy price tag, they are absolute quality. The heel height is 10cm, which is on the high side, but they are so incredibly comfortable that I hardly notice. They're also genuine leather with a pointed toe to keep to the style trend this winter.
2. Printed asymmetrical skirt
Where to buy: Glassons
Slip midi skirts have been one of the biggest trends over the last 12 months. Therefore, I own one in pretty much every colour you can think of. But now, a new breed of midi skirts has arrived and I'm obsessed.
Introducing the printed asymmetrical skirt from Glassons – this isn't a skirt I thought I'd fall in love with but alas, here we are. The uneven hemline accompanied with the mixed print is exactly the type of vibe I'm looking for this winter. The slit also breaks up the patterns, so it isn't too overwhelming and makes this product absolute perfection.
3. Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask
Where to buy: Sephora
As someone who suffers from dry skin all season round, I love anything that will give me glowing, fresh, hydrated skin. Enter, the Youth to the People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask.
Everyone suffers from dry skin in winter, and this will honestly be a life saver. I'm the laziest person when it comes to skincare, but this has to be one of the easiest products to use. Simply apply a thin layer to your skin before going to bed and that's it. It not only hydrated my skin but also improved dullness and uneven skin tone.
4. Queen band tee
Where to buy: Missguided
Discount: 50% OFF almost everything
Another month means another graphic tee to purchase. Sometimes these can sit on the expensive side, and I'm not really about that. That's why this Queen tee from Missguided was one of my favourite purchases from the month. The quality of the shirt is surprisingly high given the price point and the graphic just speaks for itself.
5. Bondi Sands Aero Tan
Where to buy: Priceline
If you missed the full review on the Bondi Sands Aero Tan, then let me break it down for you. This product has become my new favourite fake tan. It is one of the most hydrating tans I've ever tried, and it doesn't sacrifice a deep colour for a rich formula. It dries down in a legit second and the shade makes you look like you just got back from a European holiday.
If you're in the market for a new tan or just feel like trying something different, then I would recommend giving it a go.
6. Gold "Baby" necklace choker
Where to buy: Princess Polly
Discount: 20% OFF Sitewide
I'm a big fan of accessories. Necklaces, earrings, hats, sunglasses – you name it. So when I saw this dainty gold choker on the Princess Polly website, it was more of a "need" than a "want" situation.
This is the absolute perfect necklace to layer with other jewellery. It sits higher than all my other necklaces, so it doesn't get tangled but still looks incredibly cute by itself. It does have a lobster clasp fastening with customisable lengths that gives this item another huge tick in my books.
7. Ribbed flare pants
Where to buy: Nasty Gal
Discount: 50% OFF everything
Flares are one of the hottest trends this season, and I am 100% on board. I've already managed to snag two pairs of flare jeans but have been looking for a good pair that is on the more comfortable side.
These ribbed flare pants from Nasty Gal are exactly what my heart desired. They are incredibly comfy and the stretch waist with draw cords just hits the nail on the head. One issue I have with flares is that they are always too long, but these are the perfect length for someone of medium height.
8. Casual check shirt
Where to buy: Cotton On
Discount: 20% OFF your first order
While we're on the topic of comfortable clothing, I think one winter item that every closet should own is a good old oversized check shirt. I lived in one of these bad boys so much last winter that it has definitely seen better days, so it was about time to get a new one.
The long length and loose fit makes it perfect for lounging around the house, but you can also dress it up with a pair of jeans and heeled boots! The style also comes in a range of colours including brown corduroy or plain black and white if that's more up your alley.
9. Square reptile black belt
Where to buy: Dissh
It's no secret that snake print is in fashion at the moment. There are snake skin pants, skirts, tops and accessories. It's why I just HAD to buy this reptile print black belt. It's the perfect belt width and buckle size, so it goes with everything I own.
On top of that, there are a good number of belt holes. This may sound silly, but I often find myself having to drill my own holes into belts because there aren't enough. However, this belt was perfect just the way it was and for a super affordable price too!
