My high street picks…

The children went back to school today (HURRAH!) so naturally I hit the shops once I had dropped them off. I thought I would share my picks from Topshop, Mango, M&S and Next with you.

Starting with Topshop.

This is really pretty but it is well above the knee (and I am 5’4) so would be great for a summer holiday, or worn over jeans in the city. It has a belt, but I preferred it without. This is a size 8, I would advise sizing up one. I don’t think this is online yet.

I also really loved this pink top, but it’s very short in the body, so would need to be worn with high waisted trousers. Very designer looking and selling fast *they didn’t have my size.

Floral Choker Bouse – £34

This top is finally online. And for those who watch Loose Women, my lovely friend Christine Lampard is wearing it today!

Next, onto Mango.

This is a lovely dress for the summer. This was a size 8. Again, fairly short, so wear with jeans (as below) if you are not keen on your knees…

If you like prints, this is a really lovely dress for summer. But SIZE UP. I am usually an XS in Mango and I needed a medium.

Printed Bow Dress – £49.99

A lovely little jumpsuit, BUT, I would want to wear a little black vest underneath to avoid stomach peeping through.

Tropical Print Jumpsuit – £35.99

Onto M&S

I had spotted this on the gorgeous Kat (@doesmybumlook40) so I went to try it on. This was a size 10 and a snug fit. I felt the white slip underneath cheapened the dress, but thought it would look beautiful with a nude slip underneath instead. Or without a slip over a bikini on holiday. It’s called a ‘Midi’ Dress, but as you can see it is full length on me. Story of my life!

Floral Print Bardot Midi Dress – £49.50

If anyone is in need of a swimsuit – this is a really lovely shape and reminds me of an Eres swimsuit at a fraction of the cost.

Swimsculpt Bandeau Swimsuit – £35
Shopper – £29.50

Just one more thing I spotted this morning, this gorgeous duvet set which is incredibly soft and looks like something you’d find in a very expensive boutique selling beautiful Indian wares.

Moving onto Next…

Black Embroidered Dress – £50

Great quality, but I felt it was missing pockets!

I also have my eye on this, which is due to arrive early May.

Happy Shopping!

  1. The marks and Spencer’s bag is online, I ordered it last week, but having arrived I found the handles to look and feel a bit cheap. This is a shame as the pattern and tassels are nice. Did you not find this?
