15 Feel-Good Items I'm Loving This Summer

Emma Spedding

It's Who What Wear's Editor, Emma Spedding, here and for this latest shopping story I wanted to bring you something a little more personal—offering an insight into my routine and wardrobe as we all adapt to a new rhythm at home. Typically my shopping galleries are filled with strictly fashion buys, however for my feel-good edit this month I've expanded things slightly to include the other things that are making me happy at home. Having recently moved house I've been looking at homeware more than shoes, and like many, have been trying new beauty products in an attempt to recreate my own makeshift spa. We all know no material possession will change the situation we are in, but the 16 items below have been small mood boosters to me that have either helped to give me a sense of routine (hello new coffee machine) or put a smile on my face when I get dressed. Keep scrolling for my feel-good edit.
