High Street Picks...

Whether you got paid just before the Bank Holiday weekend (lucky you!) or your due your earnings this week, it's the perfect excuse to check out my picks of the AW12 drops on the high street! From vintage inspired tapestry through to quirky footwear, you're going to be spoilt for choice. I heart the British high street - temptation in every store!

Tapestry Dress
 How adorable is this Tapestry Dress from Warehouse? Truly inspired by cute 50's vintage dresses, this would look perfect with tan ankle boots and mini satchel handbag.

Peplum Top
An update on the season's ultimate shape 'the peplum', Warehouse update theirs for the new season by adding some key studs and embellishment at a flattering position on the hips.

The Who Tee
Forever 21

After a truly awesome performance at this year's London Olympics Closing Party, The Who are slowly but surely appearing on cropped tees and jersey tops across the high street. Snap this one up for just £12.75 from Forever21 to get in on the action early!
Drummer Boy Trainers
 Following on from the Olympic trend are these amazing Drummer Boy athletic sneaker wedges from Topshop. I could see these on the likes of Rihanna or Rita Ora - adding a boyish twist to an LBD or funking up a staple blazer and jeans combo...
Cross Tee
Label Lab, House of Fraser
 Whilst crosses and other religious icons continue to decorate our high street stores, House of Fraser's sub brand Label Lab have decided to paint their Autumn collection in the cult trend too. Wear with converse and distressed denim to complete the look.

The Vaccines Tee
Miss Selfridge
 I am obsessed with The Vaccines at the moment so imagine my delight when I came across this ultra cool tee from Miss Selfridge with the band's new album cover. Perfect to team with a leather jacket - rock out!

Faux Leather Jacket

Leather jackets are a must-have wardrobe staple, but with genuine leather ones being so expensive (although very worth it!) I've been in search of a faux one that still replicates the same look. H&M have an amazing collection and I especially love the colour of this jacket for just £29.99 (also available in black). Try it with some grey animal printed jeans like me!
