River Island are killing it this Summer. Every time I walk in to a store, I see something that I instantly want - whether it's a splash of floral print or a cool pair of ripped jeans - everything is ultra-stylish and on trend. I'e noticed that most products are also quite affordable too, compared to other, high-street retailers. One of the many reasons why River Island are fast becoming my favourite. Shh! Above are just some of the products that I'm lusting after this month, which are all wearable from day-to-night for the long summer ahead. There's something for everyone, that is both on glamorous and comfortable, ranging from the classic 90's cold shoulder dress, to beautiful, boxy blouses. What's not to like?!
1. WHITE GEM STONE EMBELLISHED T BAR SANDALS
Hands down, I am in LOVE with these strappy T-bar sandals, they're perfect for those long Summer walks, whether you're walking the dog down country lanes in the UK or exploring the streets of Rome! For £35, they're a very reasonable price for such a glamorous pair of shoes.
2. LIGHT BLUE COLD SHOULDER T-SHIRT DRESS
This pastel blue number is great for when you just don't know what to wear, and want to throw on something that doesn't look too shabby or, well, thrown on! The cut-out shoulders give off a very cool '90s vibe, and the pastel colour is bang on trend for this season. It's a fabulous catch at just £25!
3. ORANGE FLORAL PEEP TOE PLATFORM SANDALS
What says 'Summer' more than a brand new pair of heels. Especially if they're a comfy chunky heel! These beautiful 'peep toe platform sandals' are immensely bright with printed florals. My kind of shoes! ;) They look ultra-retro and stylish to throw some moves on the dancefloor whilst on a sunny holiday. For £55, I see them as a worthy investment.
I have these exact jeans in the light-wash version - I think I'm becoming slightly obsessed! White jeans are a must for Summer though, almost even a wardrobe staple for those bright, sunny days if you don't want to show off your pins! They're available both online and in-store for £40.
5. WHITE EMBELLISHED BOX CLUTCH BAG
How beautiful is this little clutch?! I love the cute embellishment and detailing on it, which is really brought out by the fresh, white colour. I also really like the fact that it also comes with a detachable chain, so if you're tired of holding it you can just swing it on your shoulder! £35 well spent I'd say.
6. GREY FLORAL PRINT PLEATED MINI SKIRT
Again, probably something that I am completely in love with, and will most likely be stored away in my wardrobe very soon! This cute pleated mini skirt is, well, faultless! The off-grey floral pattern on it is fantastic, as it's not too 'out there' and overly bright, as I'm a little scared of wearing a lot of colour. This, however, is perfect, and as the item description says 'has summer written all over it' - you can pick this up for just £25.
7. BLACK AND WHITE STRIPE BARDOT TOP
Now, I have this in the opposite striped monochrome colour. I didn't explain that well did I? Basically, The black is in the place of the white, and the white is in the place of the black. Did that make any sense?! You can see what I have here. That would of probably been more wise! Anyway, I figured I loved the other one so much, why not get another?! I know what some people would say, 'they're pratically the same thing!' trust me, they're not! £18.
8. BLACK FLORAL PRINT BOXY SHIRT
OK, I will admit, this has been on my wishlist for a couple of weeks now, and just yesterday I took the plunge and bought it! (Review/OOTD coming soon!) My initial thoughts? I wanted it straight away. It was placed right at the front of the shop, and my eye caught it immediately. I just HAD to have it! The reason being, I knew that I would get a lot of wear out of it, as it's a timeless shirt to me, even to carry it through from Summer to Winter. It's available both online and in store for £38.
9. WHITE PANELLED SUITCASE
What better way to look stylish on your travels than this trendy-looking suitcase?! It looks so smart and cool, definitely for a fashionista abroad! I would most likely use this as hand-luggage for my holidays. It's the perfect size, and I personally love the white leather look contrast it has going on. You can wheel this away for £65.
