Topshop and Anthropologie sale buys

 PHOTOGRAPHS BY SILVIA OLSEN

This Topshop top is a recent sale buy. Ditto the Anthropologie sunglasses. And I've blogged about my Alex Monroe horseshoe necklace already.

Did you see the Topshop colour burst tunic in store? I got it for £25 in the sale, reduced from £45, but it's now just £15 on the Topshop website. Hurry, as there's only size 10 left. However, it is very generously sized, so you're in luck if you're a size 12-14, too.

I was impressed that the Topshop tunic came in both petite and tall options, as well as regular. I did search for the tall version as I wanted to wear it as a dress; the regular one that I ended up with isn't quite long enough as it's shorter at the front than the back, but I still love it.

The graphic pattern reminds me of Jonathan Saunders' brilliant use of colour and of my Cos dress, too. Made of a silky lightweight polyester, the top is cool to wear, especially with the oversized armholes. They give a sexy glimpse of underwear, so make sure you've got your best on show!

As for my Anthropologie sunglasses, I was drawn by their retro design. The grey-green frames, outlined with white and transparent olive on the outside edges are a little bit Marni – without the price tag. In fact, £15.95, reduced from £34.95.

What have you been wearing and buying in the sales this summer? See how Team ELLE have been dressing at the What ELLE Wears blog at ELLEuk.com.
