This time I have chosen Warehouse. I absolutely love Warehouse but I am afraid it is sometimes out of my price range (damn the saving for a mortgage!), so for me there is no better time to shop there than during their sales. You are guaranteed to pick up something that you can carry through into next season rather than picking up clothes that have always been stored in the back of the shop, and are only brought out to make shoppers feel like they are getting a bargain.
I adore sleeveless jackets, I bought a sleeveless mac a couple of years ago from Primark and I still love it; I know they don't seem practical but we are talking about fashion, not function. This jacket would go with absolutely anything; a summer dress, jeans, t-shirt and a coloured pair of heels, or if you want to be really daring jeans and only the jack buttoned up. This would ooze sophistication and sex appeal on a night out. I think I've talked myself into buying it even though I've got zero cash.

No summer wardrobe would be complete without a floral print dress but what I love most about floral dresses is that they can also brighten up a dull winter wardrobe, either with a pair of knee high boots or biker boots and one of my favourite styles, chunky knits. As for the summer, this dress would look cute with chunky wedges and a denim shirt for a cool cover up. You could even team it with the sleeveless jacket above.

I am starting to notice that I have a new fascination with blouses. Maybe it's as I'm getting older I am looking for sophisticated looks but fear not, I'm not completely over the hill yet. I would wear this shirt with a pair of orange shorts that I recently picked up at Zara, or even my trustworthy denim shorts and one of my staple hats.

I have always been a bit wary of paisley; the fear of resembling my Grandmothers bedding is just too much to bear, but as the saying goes we must face our fears and this is another summer pattern that appears every year. I think these are the trousers to help me overcome my fears but I would play safe with a black or white top; either a shirt, or in this glorious heat, a crop top.

I will warn you now this is the second of three sleeveless items I've picked out; I told you I'm obsessed with them. This sleeveless biker shirt combines two of my favourite trends, white and sleeveless. This shirt would be great with a pair of denim shorts and a pair of biker boots if you can stand to wear them in this heat.

You can't beat a maxi dress for effortless summer style, they even have the added bonus of covering your legs in the summer if you haven't managed to tan or shave them (not that many of us girls would admit to that). This dress has such a flattering cut to it; nipped in at the waist, halter neck and a keyhole cutout so save this dress for that special summer occasion.

This jumpsuit might appear a bit simple on first glance but that's the beauty. It can be so easy to copy what the mannequin in the window is wearing or what is in the latest fashion magazine, but you could really put your own stamp on this. Personally I would accessorise this with bright and bold prints, over sized bags and jewellery or a bright customised belt with a large flower.

Last but definitely not least; my third and final sleeveless blouse. This shirt is bang on trend sleeveless, monochrome and colour block. This shirt would look amazing with my white cigarette trousers, as long as they are the same shade of white.
Which is your favourite piece? What would you wear them with? Which sales do you love?
