Friday's High Street Hitlist

How is it Friday already?! This week has been something of a tornado and really seems to have flown by.

Anyhow, since it's the end of the week, you know what that means - it's time for our round-up of the hottest bits and pieces to hit the high street this week.

Writing this piece has become extremely bad for my purse, but I can't help but love it anyway... 

Happy shopping

Zara

As you all know by now, Zara is our FAVOURITE high street shop. You might call it a mental addiction, I like to call it...um...a healthy obsession (it isn't). Anyway, here are some gorgeous pieces to hit Zara this week. Someone, PLEASE buy me this bracelet clutch bag

Bracelet clutch, £59.99
Coated trousers with zips, £29.99, Zara

The perfect summer dress, £49.99, Zara 
Fringed mini skirt, £22.99, TRF

Waxed leather trousers, £39.99, TRF
Printed skirt, £29.99

Strappy sandal, £59.99


Cos


I once read that Cos  is the choice high street stores for fashion editors, and I can see why. It's great for staple wardrobe purchases, but with a twist. The flippy skirt below, for example, is apparently lined with neon - great if you have a Marilyn moment like I always seem to! Just don't forget your knickers...

Flippy skirt, 59 Euros
Chain tube necklace, 29 Euros
Cropped mustard chinos, 69 Euros


ASOS


I can find ASOS a little bit hit and miss. I will often fall in love with a piece on the site, only to find that it's fairly poor quality when it arrives. However, it is fantastic for accessories and handbags! These are some of my faves...

Spike knuckleduster ring, £8

Chunky link bracelet, £15


Neoprene clutch, £35

I also happen to love dresses with pockets...£30


Whistles

Oh, how I love Whistles! It's rare that I find a store where clothes fit me like a glove, but Whistles is one of those places. I have a mini obsession with pineapples right now (don't ask why!) and so I've fallen for this jumper...

Whistles golden pineapple jumper, £125
Warehouse


Given our obsession for flamingos, it's no surprise that we've fallen for this Warehouse flamingo-print tee...


Flamingo tee, £28

Topshop

After months and months of wanting pretty much everything on Topshop, this week's new arrivals are a little disappointing. However, I am CRAZY for this studded bag and patent pastel brogues...oh, and how cool is the zip ring?!

Leather studded bag, £85
Mint green brogues, £60

Zip ring, £5

Metallic and grey sandals, £78


Oasis

I love colour-blocking and I ADORE pleated skirts (see here). So, these buys from Oasis really are no-brainers...

Colour-block shirt, £45
Pleated midi skirt, £45

Forever 21


Forever 21 is one of my favourite places to go for amazing, yet cheap, jewellery. Check out some of these accessories...the studded necklace is fab!

Woven chain bracelet, £3.90

Spiked leather cuff, £4.90

Tribal spiked choker, £8.40
