After my recent ‘brands to inspire’ post, I got lots of messages asking about other brands that I admire, particularly on the high street. As many of you will know by now, I love my vintage clothing and my outfits are usually a mix of high street, vintage, and the odd higher end piece. I don’t like spending a crazy amount on my outfits, but I do like to invest in those luxury items now and then, usually the pieces that I know I’ll wear and love forever. With that in mind, I thought I’d give you a little insight into the high street brands I’m loving at the moment, and the pieces that have been catching my eye…

ZARA

And Other Stories

ASOS

So there you have it – all my recent top picks from my favourite high street brands! I’d definitely recommend making wish lists if you’re feeling in a bit of a rut with your wardrobe. This was actually really helpful for me to analyse once I’d finished because I could look back and pick out the pieces that were similar and compare which I liked best. I prefer to shop like this online rather than just adding a load of things to my basket and ending up with lots of things I don’t need. There’s definitely some strong/unintentional themes here too – lots of pastel blues, polka dots, gingham, and ruffle blouses it would seem. I’m really into mules at the moment too – I think they are the perfect Spring/Summer shoe, and instantly make a look more put-together and stylish. The Urban Outfitters (by Vagabond) ones above are also a great dupe for some ByFar ones that I’ve had my eye on, but for a fraction of the price! Anyway, I hope this was helpful in some way – what are your thoughts on the pieces I picked out? Would love to know which ones you are lusting after most in the comments below…

    You should definitely do a summer/holiday piece! I’d love to see the kind of outfits you’d wear with a few good days of sun!

      It might be because they are on the EU store – just checked and it’s working okay for me! xx
