Cabot Circus challenged three fashion bloggers last weekend to style a summer outfit of their choice as part of their current 'Home of the High Street' campaign. I was lucky enough to be one of the three asked to take part and was given a fantastic budget of £150 to style my choice of a 'Summer Chic' outfit using all the amazing shops in Cabot Circus in Bristol!

I wanted to mix it up a bit so I had a range of pieces from different high street stores at Cabots and here is my result. 
Firstly,I love these bird printed Zara shorts! I just couldn't resist them. As soon as I tried them on the fabric made me feel chic and summery. I also love the pockets giving more of a relaxed look. I have been after a short sleeve, white, knit jumper for a little while now and love white and red worn together, so I just had to team the two. Stick to a light weight jumper for the summer though. This one is great from Monsoon and has a flattering bateau neck line.
I wanted to accessorise with a chunky statement necklace to lift the outfit. New Look do an amazing range at the moment and you are spoilt for choice, but the colours of this one really stood out for me. I only had one shoe destination in mind and that was Zara as I am obsessed with their current collection. I especially love these white ankle strappy heels! Very on trend this summer and great to compliment the look. 
So the style was nearly finished, I just had to find the bag and I found this cream clutch from H&M which I liked for it's simplicity and subtle detailing, so not to take the emphasis away from the shorts. 
To finish off I couldn't resist these round sunglasses from Topshop to add a bit of fun to the look. Everyone needs a pair!

I had such a fun time styling my 'Summer Chic' outfit and would like to say a big thank you to Cabot Circus!
