Friday's High Street Hitlist

This week's high street edit is a bit of a bumper one because a) there are a lot of fabulous clothes instore this week, and b) it's the bank holiday - it's made for shopping!

The stores seem to be bursting with bold colours and graphic prints this week, which are both perfect for lifting your mood in this damp and dreary weather. So, my top buys? Well, H+M is one of my particular favourites this week, as is the tangerine maxi. Although, I think I'll also be snapping up the neon yellow bag from Zara too.

Enjoy shopping!

You may remember all the fuss that Teresa and I made about the plain black version of Zara's studded blazer. So much so, that we both went out and bought it...I LOVE this new, updated version. With its multi-coloured pattern, it's a lot brighter and perfect for Spring.

Multi-coloured studded blazer, £119

Tangerine pleated maxi skirt, £59.99
White lace dress, £69.99
Clutch bag with chain bracelet, £59.99

Cowhide messenger bag, £22.99, TRF


Topshop is brimming with bright, graphic prints right now - and I love it! They're not for the fainthearted, but if you really want to update your SS12 wardrobe, try this dress below. Topshop Emerge has also hit the web this week, with a series of up and coming designers featured on the site.

Oasis are having a bit of a moment right now, with their perfect balance between ultra girly (think floral prints, 50s-style dresses and full circle skirts) and rocker. I love love love these leopard print skinnies, but then I'm just a fan with anything leopard print...

Black embellished flapper dress, £75


ASOS is the perfect place to stock up your summer wardrobe. At the moment, it's crammed with colourful items and unique pieces - just take a look at the book clutch below! A great copy of the celeb favourite Olympia Le Tan. I also adore the River Island shopper - it's studded, it's tote-shaped, it's nude! What more do you want?
