Friday's High Street Hitlist


This week, it's all about the summer sales - early, early, early sales, brought on by the miserable weather I'm thinking! It's great if you're yet to buy your summer holiday wardrobe, as there are plenty of bargains to be had (I was especially impressed with the Oasis sale).

But if you're craving something a little bit new, then there are still some gorgeous pieces dropping into the high street right now. There's still plenty of whites (at Zara, Cos and Warehouse - we told you pure white is a big thing this season!), as well as bold, vivid prints - just choose your style and take your pick!

My shop of the week? Zara is the obvious one, but I'm loving Warehouse right now...

Zara

The wave of white to hit Zara this week is making me very happy indeed. It feels fresh and new after the abundance of neons. I especially love this back detailed blazer and the jacquard shorts...

Topshop

Is it just me, or do these kitten heel courts look very Chanel-esque? Either way, they'd make a great addition to cropped black skinnies and an oversized sweater...

Cos

I have to confess, I may have spent a small fortune in the Cos sale this week. Ooops...However, there's plenty of new buys to hit the store. Top of my list? This highlighter pencil skirt - classic enough for the neon to still look bright and interesting.

Silicone t-shirt, 39 Euros
Neon pencil skirt, 69 Euros


ASOS

I have a thing for collars, and so I am definitely going to be snapping up this rhinestone one! Perfect to wear over lace and crochet detailed tops now, it will also jazz up your jumpers a treat come winter...

Polka midi dress, £28

Woven floral t-shirt, £25

Colour block bag, £45

Quite simply my store of the week! Everything looks clean, modern and exciting. I adore the leather full skirt and the cutwork shirt - I reckon they'd be great additions to your autumn wardrobe. Yes, I know - AUTUMN!

Floral silk tee, £46

Leather full skirt, £80
Cutwork shirt, £40
Lace yoke shirt, £45

I love this intricate beaded shirt. It would be great dressed down with skinnies and lo-tops, or up with a tux jacket and super shiny courts.


Floral beaded shirt, £40
Coral colour block tee, £10

I adore this dipped hem dress, although I'm not entirely sure where I'd wear it - I'd definitely be too chicken to wear it to a wedding. Maybe somewhere like Ascot?! On the flipside, this stripe jumper is the perfect summer cover-up - just throw over your denim cut-offs for easy, breezy festival chic!

Dipped sequin dress, £95
Striped jumper, £42
