Top 5 things in my wardrobe...right now.

I'm a pretty fickle person when it comes to my wardrobe, but I definitely have a few pieces I always want to grab each weekend - and these are what they are...for now.

Topshop tunic - I bought this last summer and pick it up constantly. I tend to wear it with jeans and stacks of gold jewellery, I love the beaded neckline detail. After I bought this Topshop came up with it in several different colours, though this combination is still my favourite :)

Topshop dress - this is my favourite sales buy - I'd been eyeing up this dress for months but couldn't quite bring myself to spend £80 on it, so imagine my joy when I found just one (in my size) half price in the sales. The detailing around the neck is so pretty and I think it can be dresed up or down - with leggings and heels or tights and a chunky cardigan. Really versatile and really pretty.

Warehouse skirt - I got this in the sales and despite being a bargain - I've got more than my money's worth from it. I've been teaming it with casual t-shirts and vests to dress them up, and stop the sequins looking too OTT. I also like that unlike most sequinned skirts out there, the sequins are matt and therefore much less obvious.

H&M dress - This is a bit of a cheat as I only bought it last week but it has quickly risen up the charts. I really like the baggy off the shoulder fit and the embellishment - in case you haven't noticed I'm a bit of a fan of sparkle :)

I popped into the Bullring whilst waiting to meet a friend in Birmingham - it was one of the armful of items I hauled into the dresing room, I was really impressed by the range in H&M right now and had to stop myself buying anything else! I think I may have to pop in after my next payday to pick up some new work clothes...there are lots of lovely neutral dresses and seperates that are perfect for the office, without being too stuffy.

Topshop cardigan - this may not look too special on the hanger but I wear this constantly and love it. It's hard to see but the cardigan has shoulder pads which give it a great shape without being too 'eighties'. As I'm pretty conscious of my hips I find this really helps to balance out my shape and it works well to smarten up more casual outfits and add a bit of edge to a bit of a boring cardie.

Topshop tee - finally, my favourite t-shirt right now. First time this appeared online it sold out almost straight away so when I saw it in Westfields I had to get it. It's silly but I love it - and it looks great with leggings, jeans or tucked into a smarter skirt. And who doesn't love a hairy chest? :) I'm handing it over to you. What are your top 5 items in your wardrobe right now? Clothes only - acccessories will come later. I'd love to see what you're coveting right now...want to show me?
