A Very Wearable Friday's High Street Hitlist

I don't know about you guys, but Teresa and I are finding it ridiculously hard to find clothes on the high street which we actually like right now. No, scrap that - clothes which we can actually wear.

We are tired of the 90s fashion which the stores are chock-full of at the moment (check out Teresa's fab Not Into This post here), especially since I live by the rule that if you wore it the first time round, you don't wear it again! It's depressing as this is the first time it's happened to me, and I'm feeling OLD. Consigned to the scrap heap at the age of 27.

Anyway, the other shops are simply stocked with pretty floral camisoles and flippy mini skirts. How do I wear them in minus temperatures?!

With that in mind, I have scoured the high street to bring you some wonderful, wearable pieces. It means that this week's list is a little more pared-back than usual, but I guarantee that pretty much everyone can work these pieces into their wardrobes.

My picks of the week? Everything at H+M and French Connection's divine spring bloom collection. I hope you like them just as much as I do!

Usually my favourite shop of them all, Topshop has been number one enemy with its 90s-inspired gear. Here are my favourite picks that you can wear, and you can style them up however you like.

MOTO Blonde Leigh skinny jeans, £38

Kylie Strippy shoes, £75
Lightweight duster coat, £79
Three colour block shirt, £34
Silk Cami, £42 by Boutique 

I must admit, it's been a long time since I fell head over heels for anything in Zara. But I am loving this green satchel bag - and what a bargain it is too! Perfect for pepping up those boyfriend jeans.
Round neck coat, £69.99
Halter neck dress, £25.99

Concertina messenger bag, £25.99
Silk kimono, £29.99

Flat metal sandal, £22.99

ASOS is massively trend-led, so perhaps it's no surprise that they are one of the worst for 90s-inspired street style. However, I adore this Marc by Marc Jacobs watch, and the Whistles maxi skirt is a must for my holiday wardrobe...

Whistles Charlie skinny jean, £80
Vero Moda drawstring waist dress, £14

High waisted skinny trousers, £25
