It's Your Legendary High Street Hitlist

Over 50 (yes, 50!!) of our favourite picks from the new drops to hit the high street this week...

Hello! I'm back! Boy have I missed you lot. I would like to say a massive THANK YOU for all of the thoughtful messages and gifts. I was truly touched by your kindness and generosity. I have got a very long way to go before I recover, but hey, I'll rock my crutches in the meantime!

Poor Sam has had to work her socks off these past three weeks, I couldn't have timed my hospital stay at a more busier time. She has been an absolute darling. You know all the lovely recipes she shares on Saintly Tuesdays and Sinner Thursdays? Well, she has been delivering her culinary delights to me and I can vouch they are incredible; what that girl can create in the kitchen is ruddy ace!

Anyway, onto this week's hitlist… has been somewhat difficult looking at all the new drops to hit the high street this week. Why? Because the sheer thought of trying on a leather jacket, jeans with a stomping big pair of boots is rather off-putting in this heat no matter how cool we think they will look once our colder climes return.

I have tried to keep this week's hitlist as cool as possible for you, but there may be a few items which I love so much you will need to stand inside a chest freezer to try them on.

Check out the grey mesh dress, it's an absolute bargain and you will wear it a lot. Sam bought the orange one of these dresses last month and she loves it, so comfortable and light.
