Gilly Hicks is my new favourite store crush. Now, hear me out – I swear I can hear some of you tutting! I can understand why a lot of people avoid the Abercrombie & Fitch conglomerate like the plague, but while I don’t shop in A&F myself (mainly because of how expensive it is), it’s little siblings Hollister and Gilly Hicks have become two of my favourite shops. Their clothes are super good quality, and the price points are just right. Actually, they’re often a lot cheaper than you’d expect, especially Gilly Hicks. I went for a little shop in their Regent Street store and came away with two bras which were only £15 or so each! Another thing I love about them is their use of colour. Their clothes come in the most gorgeous array of colour combos and prints, and I always pop on one of their pieces if I’m needing a little pick me up that day.
You might have seen me styling a Gilly Hicks top a few weeks back with jeans and a pair of silver stilletos, but today’s outfit is all about easy breezy casualness for every day summer and holiday wear. There’s nothing more you want when exploring a Mediterranean city (these pics were shot at Plaza de Espana in Seville on mine and Callum’s mini break there) than something light to keep you cool in the heat. Plus, how can you not smile when wearing a pair of neon shorts and a bright green top? When I’m on holiday I also layer a few bracelets for that festival style, and here I’ve got on my Cinderela B Liberty wrap bracelet and a chunky rope Bimba and Lola number. My mum bought it as a present for me and I love it – it’s so unusual but super cute. x
