The sun has truly shone on British shores this last week and, while I more than welcome such beautiful weather, it only served to highlight to me how thoroughly unprepared my wardrobe is for the warmer months. Given that I have also just booked a holiday, it's high time that I started purchasing some key pieces for summer.

Today, I want to talk to you about one particular online retailer with such a beautiful selection of clothing that I can't help but drool over. That retailer, is Farfetch. 

If you aren't familiar with them, allow me. Farfetch  is the fashion one stop shop, where you can browse designer products from as many as 400 boutiques around the world. José Neves, the Portuguese entrepreneur who founded Farfetch, created the site having a need for independent boutiques to establish a greater online presence in order to boost business. 

It's easy to see why Farfetch is so popular for those looking to purchase some snazzy new designer togs. I set about creating my ultimate wish list for you, from various boutiques, below;

I had to physically tear myself away from looking at this boutique's wares.
I fell in love with the Dsquared2 Sleeveless Dress below. It comes in black and white and fits in all of the right places - a perfect number to dress up for summer evenings. 

They also had a really cute Diane Von Furstenberg skirt and Michael Kors top - both with the cutest detailing (below).

Clothing aside, a girl has got to have some accessories too. I have listed after a Chloé Faye bag for some time (you can find these on the Farfetch site too), but when I was scrolling through I found their Indy bag.

It's a really great size for summer, which is the one time of the year I actually downsize my handbag, and I love the combination of the tan with gold-tone hardware.

am all about floaty fabrics when it gets a bit warmer and I found a gorgeous Chloé top here. 

I just adore this; the off shoulder cut, the tassels, different patterns and the swingy 70's esque sleeves. It's a definite yes from me. 

Noticing a pattern at all with this wish list...? I found another delightful off the shoulder blouse from Rosetta Getty. It would look great with tailored shorts (as seen below) or a nice skirt.

This boutique had a great selection of denim and I was especially drawn to some distressed skinny jeans, again from DSquared2. 

They can be dressed up a little with heels as above, or you could take a more casual approach and pair them with flats for a cool daytime look.

For all of you UK readers, I've included a map below of all of the Farfetch boutiques in London, showing which designers you can expect to find at which store. 

If you don't fancy leaving the comfort of your own home but want to treat yourself to that special item, however, head over to the Farfetch website. It's so fantastic to be able to have fashion from all different corners of the world right at your finger tips. 

You can bag also 10% off your first order and I happen to have spotted some great stuff in the sale section if you were hoping to bag a bargain. 

Have you picked up any great Farfetch goodies? Tell me all about them in the comments below...
