Spring/Summer 15 – What’s on the High Street

I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult to go Spring/Summer shopping when there is still snow on the ground outside! However, as a Scottish lass, I am used to four seasons in one day so it shouldn’t be such a struggle. To get me in the mind frame of wearing light jackets and open toed shoes again, I have been looking online to see what there is and I have picked my top 8 items…

123

1. Black Stripe Print Tie Waist Slim Fit Trousers, £19.99, New Look

2. Biker jacket, £60.00, Next

3. Cream fringe heels, £39.00, Dorothy Perkins4 5

4. Pink Jacquard Full Skirt, £120.00, Untold at House of Fraser

5. Blue lace back jumper, £22.00, Miss Selfridge6 7 8

6. Floral handbag, £55.00, Star by Julien Macdonald at Debenhams

7. Yellow floral print top, £42.00, M&Co.

8. Floral scuba coat, £23.00, Primark.


I would love to hear your thoughts on my picks! Do you have any of the items I have included? How do you style them, or how would you if you did? Comment below I would love to hear your ideas… 🙂 xx

My Favourite Shops in Dunedin: Shopping Haul!

I have to admit, this post is way overdue… as I am now back home in Scotland. However, it was a pretty hectic trip as with my brother being the main focus for being there, my blogging took a temporary back seat… but I’m back! I wanted to share with you my top places to hit for shopping in Dunedin. It is safe to say that Dunedin is nothing like Glasgow when it comes to shops (no Primark, H&M, River Island, Forever 21, New Look…) but the beauty of shopping abroad is that you pick up pieces that you can’t get at home.

So, for sole purpose of my blog (kind of) I hit the shops and picked out my favourite finds in Dunedin…

Glassons

This is the NZ equivalent of New Look/ River Island and is the best place for high-street fashion.

Factorie

Factorie is another high street shop, similar to New Look or Forever 21, with more casual high street pieces.

Lovisa

Every time I visit Dunedin I make sure I visit Lovisa, a jewellery shop with designer style pieces, without the price tag. Again, a great place for gifts. They have something for everyone and they wrap up your goodies beautifully!

 Lovisa don’t have an online store unfortunately! Some of their products can be viewed here.

The Warehouse

Now, the Warehouse gets a pretty bad name from what I’ve heard. It is more like Primark budget but it has everything from clothes to garden furniture. I was in and spotted this super cheap gorgeous nude quilted bag , and even better it was on sale!

The Warehouse don’t ship internationally.
