I haven’t been too well this weekend so unfortunately I haven’t been able to go into Newcastle and see what is on the high street for my lovely readers.  I have however managed to check out the ASOS sale from the confines of my bed, and I’ve picked out my favourite pieces for you; this was no easy task as I’ve had to stop myself from buying so much, well, other than one dress (I couldn’t not) and as I am having a rare night out on Friday I even had an excuse to buy it.

ASOS Floral Watercolour Bodycon Dress - Was £30, now £21

As you might have gathered by now I am slightly obsessed by florals so when I came across this gem, a midi bodycon dress, I couldn’t resist.  I do love bodycon dresses and I have owned more than my fair share, however as I am now heading towards 30 I prefer the hem length to go past my knee.  My accessories will be kept to a minimum as I think the dress speaks for itself.  I really hope that once this arrives I am not disappointed.

ASOS Shirt with Bow Back Details - Was £36, now £18

I am a huge fan of white shirts; they have such a polished feel to them and can smarten up almost any pair of jeans.   The bow back detail on this shirt is amazing and puts this white shirt on a whole other level.  This would look great with a jeans and a pair of stiletto heels, I’m thinking neon to add a dash of colour.

ASOS Culottes with Pleated Front - Was £45, now £22.50

I seem to have a new fascination with shorts which I’ve never usually bothered with before, probably because I am a bit self conscious about my legs, shorts just seem to make them look a bit chunky, but luckily these culottes will hide a multitude of sins; high waisted and wide leg, always a winner. 

ASOS Oversized Shirt in Spot Print - Was £25, now £15

This oversized blouse is amazing; I absolutely adore the sleeves and it would work well with so much.  It could be worn loose with skinny jeans or white cigerette pants, keeping bang on the monochrome trend, or tucked into a skater or full midi skirt.  I have a leather skater skirt from Topshop that would be perfect for this.  Black or white wide leg trousers would also look great with this either tucking the blouse in, or nipping the blouse in with an oversized belt.

ASOS Full Midi Skirt - Was £38, now £26.50

Full skirts are huge at the moment and I they are great for all seasons, worn with a cami vest and sandals in the summer or a jumper and knee high boots in the winter.  I’m loving the length again, there is something very prim and proper about a full midi skirt.

ASOS Midi Skirt in Check Print - Was £40, now £20

Yes another full midi skirt and reminiscent of Little House on the Prairie.  I would definitely take inspiration from the model and rock it up with a pair of biker boots.

Sam Edelman Sacha Demin Wedge Sandals - Was £175, now £87.50

Wedges really are a girl’s best friend, added height without the pain of heels.  The Aztec print on the wedge is another huge summer trend just keep the rest of your outfit simple; pastel block colours would be perfect.

ASOS Maxi Skirt in Scarf and Spot Print - Was £35, now £24.50

Maxi skirts go hand in hand with the summer and there is still some sun left, hopefully.  The slits give the maxi skirt a new lease of life and show just enough leg, unlike the black skirt I bought from Primark, my own fault I should have tried it on I just couldn’t face the queue; nothing that a thread and needle won’t fix though.


  1. Your comment about white shirts reminded me of something Gok Wan said when being interviewed.

    He was asked, "what one item of clothing should a woman have in her wardrobe?"
    He replied, "A smart white shirt."

    Great minds. :) x

  2. I love a bargain! There is so much on the high street that you should never have to pay full price I reckon! I found you on blogger bunch's blog hop. I'm at Hannah x
