Friday's High Street Hitlist

I am writing this week's high street hitlist through gritted teeth since, as I'm now up the duff, I can no longer buy all these pretty things...

So, I'm trusting that you will do me proud and spend lots of money in my honour!

Enjoy this week's picks - and please don't gloat too much if you do happen to buy something lovely. Remember this poor, frumpy pregnant lady. ;)

P.S In a moment of self-pity, I added a section of cool maternity wear at the bottom of this post for all you fabulous mums-to-be!


As always, I'm starting with Zara, for no particular reason, except I love it. I LOVE the trench coat with contrasting cuff - so much so that I may order it in a larger size...they also do a leopard print version too.

zara black platform heels
Gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwood / Charlotte Olympia-worthy platforms, £59.99

Zara trenchcoat
Trench with contrasting yellow cuffs, £59.99
neon blazer
I LOVE this blazer (£59.99). In fact, I even tried it on...sadly, with my blonde hair, I looked like a giant highlighter. But it's perfect for darker skins or brunettes!

Zara layered dress
Panelled metallic dress, £39.99

Since there's 25% off with Grazia (enter the code GRAZIA25) this week, it would be rude NOT to do a round-up, right? Here's what's on our KG wish list...

KG spiked shoe
European studded court, £240
neon yellow shoe
Class neon court shoe, £210...these really would stop traffic!

sam edelman flats
I LOVE Sam Edelman shoes and I LOVE studded slippers...handy that he's just released some then! £140
pink sunglasses
Sarah sunnies, £60...super super pretty, super cool, super perfect for spring!
striped clutch
Striped canvas pouch, £30

I am having a mini love affair with Topshop's blazers right now. I want them in every single colour, worn with a slouchy tee, tuxedo trousers or skinny jeans and brogues...gorgeous.

P.S Since originally writing this post, I may (just may) have ordered this an extra large size, for bump. Obviously...

topshop blazer
Watermelon boyfriend blazer, £'s the black contrast lining which I love!
pastel skinnies
Mint green crops, £32
topshop monochrome
Monochrome blazer, £75
studded accessories
Studded bracelet, £12

I usually shop on ASOS for accessories, but I LOVE the colour of both of these pairs of trousers...

bright yellow jeans
Mango trousers, £29.99

kookai trousers
Kookai tailored trousers, £59...I adore this colour!

spotty sneakers
Converse polka dot trainers, £45...I CAN wear these!

neon stripe scarf
Yellow striped scarf, £75...perfect for rocking the neon trend in a subtle way

I so wish I hadn't got a blossoming bump so that I could rock this whole pleated leather skirt outfit! It is just my style...I love the lemon with the blue. Gorgeous!

pleated mini skirt
Pleated leather mini skirt, £98
pastel pleats
I'm going mad for pleats again...but how Prada-worthy is this?! £45
bird print jeans
Swallow print crop jeans, £48

pastel colourblock
Ice cream holdall, £45...I love these colours. They seem fresh, yet elegant and retro all at the same time!


I usually shop at Reiss for occasion wear only, since I find it tends to be fairly expensive. However, I had a quick browse and there are some fab pieces on there! I love this printed midi especially...
reiss midi dress,
I want to swish about and twirl around in this pretty midi! £235
reiss high waist trousers
I love this whole outfit, but I have a thing for high-waisted trousers...they remind me of Audrey Hepburn. £120


This is my newest, newest discovery and I am SO glad I found this website! It is jam-packed with gorgeous jewellery, all at affordable prices - plus the lady who runs it is rather lovely too. Bonus!

mozzypop ring, YSL replica,
I love this YSL-esque gold and turquoise ring...I love it so much that I bought it. And it also comes in two other colours! Bonus...

And as a special treat, I've done a round-up of stylish maternity wear for all you trendy mums-to-be! Enjoy...

Gorgeous white striped sundress...perfect blinged up with gold jewellery and soft waves! £28, Topshop
