Outfits of the Week!

Hi Guys, 

Today is the first post of my new weekly feature 
"Outfit of the Week!" 
Every week I ( and Katie) will do our best fashion spying on the big high street players and pick out one shop who we feel has the best overall outfit from there "new in" section. They could be dressy, smart, casual, but it has to be a complete look from head to toe, now I know we would never wear an outfit made up of completely one shop  
(although I have done that on occasion with Primark!) but this is more to find which shop is offering the most bang on trend items each week. 
Some weeks, like this one, there will probs be more than one shop, but it just gives you more fab fashion to choose from! 

This weeks winners are....

                                                            Miss Selfridge
                      Hat- £16, Top- £32, Leggings- £22, Clutch- £24, 
                          Cuff-£10,Shoes- £40

Metallic's have been huge this season and when I saw these sliver leggings, I knew I had the start of the very cool look, I like to mix styles and trends, so I teamed them with this gorgeous graphic print top, which ticks 3 boxes of being print, pastels and Aztec/tribal. The hat is brand new in stock and will no doubt fly of the shelves, so get it while you can, and how fab are these wedges? Not only do they tie in with the colour of the top, they look perfect with leggings and are great at giving the calves some definition! 

                                                               River Island

   Jacket- £55, Vest- £6, Jeans £35  , Bag- £65, Necklace £12, 
                            Shoes £50

This look was all about the Jacket, how amazing is the bright print, that will literally make any outfit look polished, River Island have been wonderful with prints this season definitely worth checking out.So, I keep it really simple after that and just put it was these light denim ( on trend) jeans and this bargain yellow vest! The shoes were the other main selling pint to this look, who would love to own these this Summer? 

       Dress-£28,Bag- £32, Bracelets- £16.50,Shoes- £65 

I saw this dress, as soon as I hit the Topshop site, I love it, it is the perfect Summer dress, for either day or night.So, I had to style it like I was packing my holiday wardrobe, with big bold wedges and a raffia bag, nothing to structured or bold, this look is all about beach to bar casual! 

I hope you like my picks and this new feature, and if you have any ideas or suggestions for Outfit of the Week, please let me know. 
So, now you can hit the shops and buy them this weekend, after pay day. It is such a great feeling to know you can go shopping again without the post clothes guilt that comes with it towards the end of the month! 

Happy Midweek!
