High Street Heroes | H&M Blue Spot Top and Matalan Pencil Skirt

It’s been said many times that the British high street is the best in the world, and who can argue with that? Whistles and River Island have just made their London fashion week debut, while Topshop Unique has been a regular since 2001. H&M will also make their Paris fashion week debut with a show at the Musée Rodin at the end of this month. So with the designer collections hogging the limelight I thought I’d wear some of my favourite high street bargains.

The H&M top was £12 (so I bought it in black too!) and the Matalan skirt was £14. While Matalan may not be the most fashion forward of shops you can find some real gems at fantastic prices there. This skirt is fully lined, doesn’t crease and I love the colours and paisley pattern. The red coat is J by Jasper Conran at Debenhams and the ankle boots are from Office. I’ve finished the outfit with a Temperley London bag, handmade bracelet and a gorgeous chunky silver ring from Pia.

Spring can't come soon enough for me but one of the positives about the cold weather (and let's face it, there aren't many) is wearing a fabulous snuggly faux fur coat. I scored another Matalan bargain with this one – reduced to £22! I absolutely love it – it's so warm and feels really nice on. The shirt and bag were also sale finds – both Mary Portas at House of Fraser. The bag strap is detachable so it can be worn across the body or as a clutch, making it a great bag to use for both the office and a night out. I bought the Kenneth Jay Lane ring in the Net-a-Porter sale at a snip. I love the contrast of the stones against the bright gold. We all need a bit of brightness on a cold and grey day!
