New Year, New Wardrobe: The Pieces We're Shopping For in 2018

By Carmel Dunne

Header Image

Fresh starts, resolutions and motivational quotes, yes I think we all know what time of year it is! While you may be busy refining your 2018 goals, we’ve been busy shopping because there’s nothing that says “new year” quite like an entirely new wardrobe.

As the summer break comes to a close we’re capitalising on all things floral to ease the pain. Then for business hours we’re looking to integrate some romantic blouses, 90’s shoulder bags and a new favourite - resin jewellery.

Scroll on to see all the pieces we’re shopping for in 2018:
