High Street Hitlist - 75 Items To Choose From!

You are going to have a lot of fun today because this is one big fat hitlist with 75 items for you to choose from!

Summer may be almost fading away as September draws ever closer but we are still bouncing around in our own sunshine when we get our weekly shopping fix from the high street and boy, do we have some loveliness for you today.

Have you been hunting for your must-have winter coat yet? Sam is waiting for the pastel pink M&S coat to hit the shelves, hopefully it will be very soon, but me I bought a fluffy teal boyfriend coat from Topshop earlier this week. AND now I am kicking myself, just you wait and see the frighteningly cool coats from Zara.

Think I may take mine back and swap it, what do you reckon?
