Friday's High Street Hitlist


So, it may not be a four day weekend and the weather forecast may be dreary, but we're not letting that stop us from shopping til we drop!

This week, the stores have some fab summer jackets in, all of which are perfect for this hideous in-between weather. I especially adore Zara's studded linen biker, as well as Mango's baseball-esque jacket - I need them both!

Topshop also have some great accessories in this week. The pineapple stud earrings are delicious, and cost only £6.50 - who says you can't treat yourself before pay day?

Zara continues to impress this week with this fabulous studded biker (also available in pale blue, or a non-studded metallic version), while the pretty sequinned top is perfect for pepping up your favourite skinnies.

Topshop

I'm loving Topshop's jewellery right now. Top of my list are these fruity pineapple studs and the semi-precious knuckleduster ring - they make the perfect mid-month treats!

Printed swimsuit, £35
Aztec dip-dye skirt, £32
Fluro metallic sandals, £40
Neon crop jeans, £30

Cross studs, £6
Knuckleduster ring, £10

ASOS

I adore these floral skinny jeans. The colour doesn't scream "pretty" and the lack of pastels seems refreshing right now. You can use them to either channel Betty Draper, or rock them up with slouchy sweats and slipper shoes.

Floral skinny jeans, £35
Sister Jane lace crop blouse with collar, £52
Midi dress with pockets, £60
Printed torq necklace, £8

Cos

This perforated clutch is the easy, peasy, breezy way to nail this summer's sports luxe trend. Just team with a pair of cropped black trousers, courts, a bomber jacket and, of course, a sleek, high pony tail. Simple!
Perforated bag, 49 Euros
Leather sandals, 89 Euros
Flared cotton top, 45 Euros
River Island

This is verging on tacky, which is perhaps why I love it so much! It would look great with my skinny cropped black trousers (see above) and minimal make-up.

Silver and black bomber jacket, £40
Urban Outfitters 

The perfect summer knit to snuggle into on days like these! The slouchy shape makes this the ideal cover-up for those festivals - I love it with the denim hot pants (if only I had the legs!)
Sparkle and Fade geo cardigan, £48
Animal post earrings, £10
Mango

I simply love this baseball jacket, and I think I may just have to order it...the only downside is, I'm kicking myself that I threw my old baseball jackets out when we moved house last year. It's always the way, right?!
Tie-dye denim shirt, £39.99
Baseball jacket, £44.99
Kurt Geiger

If you're after the perfect, fail-safe summer wedge, then this is it. It will go with absolutely everything, but the laser lace detailing stops it from being dull. I would also bet my life that it's super comfy...deceptively so...

Hydrangea wedge, £160
