Fashion Favourites: Topshop

I've always had a bit of an odd relationship with Topshop. Some seasons I go in there and want to buy everything, others I don't see anything I like for months. However, so far this year they seem to have loads of things I'm really loving - I bought two skirts in their post-Christmas sale, and then in the last few months I keep going in there and seeing loads of different things I want to get. Unfortunately my budget won't quite stretch to it all at the moment, so consider this a bit of vicarious shopping...

Occasionally I have to dress smartly for work, and often in the summer that's a bit of a struggle. This dress could be the solution to that. Looking like something Joan would have worn in an episode of Mad Men, its bright colour lifts it from being too wintery and the classic shape works just as well for a bar as it would for a boardroom. I'd wear it with black Mary Janes, a black blazer and a killer lipstick.

I spotted this top on Vivianna Does Makeup and instantly fell in love with it. I'm trying to move away from the rut of retro T-shirts I've been in since I was a student and this top would be great for that. The mesh sleeve detail is subtle, yet lifts it from being an everyday top to one that would work for lots of different occasions. Plus you could wear it with jeans now and with shorts or a skirt on holiday or once (well, if) the weather warms up.

You can't go wrong with a classic denim pencil skirt and this is my favourite. The fact it's black rather than blue makes it a bit more unusual, but equally means you could match it with lots of different things and that it would work across the different seasons depending what you put it with. I think it would work great with the top I posted above and some cool silver Converse, or with a comfy jumper and flat ankle boots in the winter.

Topshop has always had a reputation for good jeans, and these Lucas ones would be a great new addition to any denim wardrobe. The rip in the knee gives them a bit of a rocky edge and the fit is a nice halfway house between being skinny and relaxed. I think they're something I'd get loads of wear out of with various different things and they'd be a wardrobe staple for years.

Finally, I'm a firm believer you can never have enough workout gear (mainly because I am the lazy type who would use having no clean clothes as an excuse not to run), so this Ivy Park T-shirt would be ideal for me. Having seen it in the shop the material is really soft and I like that the print is relatively simple without looking too close to gym-wear, which makes it a good option to wear when not running as well - perhaps with the Lucas jeans. Plus for a celebrity brand the fact it's affordable is always a bonus.

Have you bought anything from Topshop recently?
