It’s easy to fall down the rabbit-hole of online shopping. One minute you decide you need a new pair of earrings, two hours later you have 32 tabs open on your browser while deep scrolling Instagram trying to find a set you spotted last week.
There are so many brands and sites to scour that sometimes it’s hard to know where to start and even harder to keep track of your favourite items once you have.
If you’re in need of a little inspiration, let the marie claire team guide you with their own personal wish-list purchases of the month.
8 Items We’re Shopping This Month
Agolde Clara Baggy Jean, $571, Net-A-Porter
I have plenty of lovely dresses and skirts sitting in my wardrobe, but most of it doesn’t get worn (I’m not alone – women wear only 20% of their wardrobe 80% of the time). I wear the same thing time and again and flared jeans with a white tee and flats is a failsafe outfit for me.
I discovered Agolde jeans a few years ago and they’re pretty much all I wear now. Perfectly cut jeans are so hard to find, but Agolde seems to work on my body type. They’re expensive, but worth the investment given I wear them several times a week!

Papa Salt Gin, $89, from alcohol stockists everywhere
Did you know that Margot Robbie (plus her husband and three of their best friends) made a gin? It’s called Papa Salt, and it sold out within 48 hours of launching in Australia earlier this year. Well, it’s back in stock — and this time, I’m not missing out. The story goes that the group of friends — Robbie, husband Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Charlie Maas and Regan Riskas — had the idea to create a gin over boozy lunches when they all lived in London. Quite frankly, that’s a founder story I can get around.

Miu Miu Sunglasses, $534, Sunglass Hut
Oval sunglasses synonymous with the ‘90s are shaping up to be the style of the summer. Heavily influenced by TikTok’s obsession with the Celine Triomphe Metal 01 frames, I’ve been eyeing this similar style from Miu Miu.
I’m obsessed with the lilac lenses and side profile logo, plus, with a birthday and summer looming there’s never been a better time to justify the splurge.

Longchamp Le Panier Pliage S Basket Bag In Brown/Canvas, $495, Longchamp
There’s nothing better than a summer bag that can take you from a seaside picnic to a cold glass of vino with friends at sunset.
This Longchamp Le Panier bag is the perfect accompaniment to your warm-weather wardrobe, making you look put together and stylish while still being understated. I love that it’s small but can actually fit a lot in it (sunglasses, sunscreen, drink bottle etc), and the canvas style goes with almost everything. A must-have in any good bag collection, I’d say.

Beloved Slip Dress by Ginger & Smart, $449 at The Iconic
I’m of the opinion you can never have too many slip dresses. With party season upon us, I’m searching for the perfect cocktail dress I can wear again, and again.

Assembly Label Maeve Trousers, $250, The Iconic
I’ve relied on the same pair of white trousers for the last few summers but it’s officially time for an upgrade. This year, I’m going for this wide leg pair from Assembly Label. I like that I can add a belt or wear just as is.

Fussbett Leather Slingback Sandals, $795, Net-a-Porter
If you know me, you know I love a good sandal. After wearing my last pair to death, and with the weather getting warmer every day, I was in the market for a new style.
I finally settled on a black pair by Marni in their classic Fussbett, and have already worn them with just about everything.

Mid Rise Tailored Maxi Skirt, $59.99, Glassons
I’m loving tailored maxi skirts now that the weather is warming up! I wear my black tailored maxi weekly and think it’s time for a refresh with a white version.
This one from Glassons won’t break the budget and I love that the split is at the back. Perfect for the Spring Wardrobe!
