Harvey Nichols and the High Street-Aiding and Abetting gets the better of me!!


Our long awaited lunch date at Harvey Nichols finally came round and it was really great to catch up with the gorgeous Kate of Make Do Style once again.

We both had a very decadent and delicious lunch-I had a golden beetroot salad with figs and walnuts, followed by a passionfruit creme brulee whilst Kate opted for a rare (as in she rarely eats them) Harvey Nicks burger followed by a refreshing sorbet.

We had a lovely laugh and chat and the topic of 'High Street' style came up-well what better way of walking off lunch than having a little browse-no harm can come of that surely!!

Well Kate had to show me the much debated pleated skirt she found at Topshop and when it fitted like a glove I had to nudge her in the right direction-the cash till that is!!

Onwards to Zara, where we found a gorgeous pair of tan leather courts reduced to £14.99-oh they fitted like a glove too, so after pondering the rest of Zaras offerings, she was nudged in the the direction of the cash till yet again.

The reason I didn't indulge in some High Street therapy as I so want the wide legged trousers we both tried on in Topshop, but have seen another print variation online-oh dear, decisions decisions huh!!


All in all, I'm guilty as charged-but had real good fun in the process and I'm sure you'll agree, she broke her High Street rules but it was worth it-doesn't she look fabulous!!

She certainly does! Those courts are totally gorgeous and the skirt very chic. You did well to nudge her towards the till!

Well if I came away looking like Kate does after you'd nudged me towards the till, I'd be very happy! Thought-out purchases are very different from a high street binge! Sounds like a lovely afternoon.

Sometimes rules are made to be broken! Especially if there's a bargain to be had and it looks fab!
