There are so many things I miss about living in London. My mum’s cooking, public transport (yes, really!), saying hello to strangers… But high-street shopping is one of the things I miss the most. Most of these brands are now available online (thank goodness), but you can’t beat the process of walking into a shop, having a good sort through the racks and then trying everything on and discovering a real bargain.
The high street is my favourite way to tap into trends that I don’t think will necessarily stand the test of time or I that I don’t feel are worth investing large amounts of money into at this point. And now, more than ever, the high street quickly jumps onto booming, must-have trends and makes them more accessible, meaning that all budgets can get their fashion fix. I love you, Great British High Street!
Go through the gallery to see which key pieces I've got on my shopping list right now…
The temperature drops at night here in L.A., so I often keep a moto jacket with me to drape over my shoulders. I love that this one is navy blue—it's less harsh and little more interesting than your usual black.
