Friday's High Street Hitlist

So, another week has flown by - and, oh, what a gorgeous week it's been! Whenever the sunshine comes out (well, actually, whatever the weather) I always want to go shopping to top up my summer wardrobe.

If I wasn't pregnant, I would DEFINITELY be buying the Oasis pineapple-print skirt, the polka camp to wear under my blazers, the Zara appliqué shirt, fringed jacket and the ASOS midi dress. Well, maybe everything...

Enjoy this week's picks!

I am in love with this fringed suede jacket - to me, it screams 'Kate Moss at a festival.' The only problem is, it's suede...and I am clumsy. The two don't mix all that well.

The colour yellow makes me very, very happy indeed! I was always told that blondes shouldn't wear yellow, yet I've always been drawn to it. And, in fact, when I wear the colour (usually a bright, in-your-face shade, or a mustard - never lemon) I always receive compliments. I think it's because it makes people smile! So, get set to make the world happy with this gorgeous blazer...

For me, Oasis are having a bit of a moment. The store is packed full of retro-style prints, 50s floral dresses and gorgeous full-circle skirts. They're great for fellow curvy girls wanting to show off that waist, and for any Mad Men fans! My favourite of all is this pineapple skirt. I LOVE the print!

I love these pretty lilac cropped trousers - I think the stripe detailing along the side is fab! Better still, I -think- Warehouse has a 25% off offer with Grazia right now. Ready, set, GO!

ASOS is usually my first stop for holiday finds because they have some fantastic prints which won't blow the bank. I also love that you can view all of the items on a catwalk before you buy - it's a great way of seeing how the material and outfits fall! I especially love this stripe midi dress (oh, the pockets! The rope detailing!)...

River Island

Last summer, I loved pretty much every item in River Island - I crammed my wardrobe with their Betty Draper-esque midi dresses. This year, however, I'm finding it a little disappointing. I still love these hi-tops, though...perfect for working the sports luxe trend!

I'm always ready for a bit of shoe lust...and these gorgeous heels really make me drool! I love the caged detailing on them. Perfect for adding a fierce edge to cropped trousers!
