High Street Surprises...

I don't know about you, but there are definitely a few high street shops I'm a little wary of - you know the kind of place - where you'll pop in every so often and find the odd gem, but otherwise, it's not really "your" shop. Anyway, River Island has always been one of those places to me - I've always found great accessorise and nice work clothes, but everything else seems to be a little overdone - too many sequins, stitching and shimmer. So it came as quite a surprise when I popped in to buy some leggings over the weekend (on my mum's recommendation!) and found some real gems - without an unnecessary sequin in site...I'm impressed. Whatever their design team are doing - they really should keep doing it, there are some great simple nautical pieces, quirky military style jackets and some gorgeous shoes, with a wearable heel. Perfect. Here are some of my favourites :)
