This Week's High Street Hitlist

HAPPY FRIDAY you lovely readers!

In the week where I finally lost my patience at the endless, interminable snow, I am all for revamping my spring wardrobe. In fact, I've been on a mini spree this week (my fave buy has to be my neon yellow biker jacket). I think that when the weather seems so dull and dreary, the time is right for treating ourselves. It needs to be done, no?

So. What will you be getting?

P.S If you're a fan of the designer / high street collabs, get your virtual elbows at the ready - J.W Anderson's latest collection for Topshop has just landed. On your marks...


I am head over heels in love with these first two jackets. I am just struggling to pick out which I order first...Hmm. Or maybe I go for both?


There's a lot of "in-your-face" slogans and garish prints landing in Topshop this week, which I think you can only get away with if you're below the age of 18 or Katy Perry. But these buys...well, these I can do!

Also in this week is J W Anderson's latest collab for Topshop - we particularly love the Argyle skirts, the Mustang sweater and the patent leather midis.


In a few weeks' time (or at least I hope so, anyway) it's going to be that pesky transitional fashion time - you know, where it's not quite warm enough to dig out your tea dresses and finer knits, but not quite cold enough to snuggle into a fur. This printed coat is the perfect item for that tricky in-between season wardrobe!


OH! I am a little in love with this whole flamingo jumper / midi skirt combo. You know how obsessed we are with the long-legged birds. I think I may well be ordering this outfit. The clutch is also a fab, versatile way to help you rock S/S13's holographic trend. Snap it up...

River Island

I generally feel incredibly old whenever I step into River Island - to me, it has the opposite effect of wandering into a branch of M+S. But if you're prepared to wade through the sea of neon leggings, body con peekaboo dresses and the tweenies in their midriff-baring tops, they genuinely have some real gems. I particularly adore RI's shoes.


Oasis is a sea of pretty, delicate dresses at the moment - think perfect pastels, prim florals and lots of 50s-style shapes. If you have a wedding coming up this spring, I think these would do just the trick. I also love their powder puff tux jackets. They would be great for brightening up your beloved jeans this season.
