I had a little nosey in Topshop this week. I wanted to check a couple of items out that I had my eye on.
First one is the cute little top above from Topshop. It reminded me a lot of my CDG Play tee that I love but for a fraction of the price. The fact that the heart is black makes it a little edgier and is perfect to go with black jeans rather than blue (I wore my black jeans a lot last summer). It's a poly viscose mix which might strike fear in to some people's hearts but it actually looks more like a linen mix fabric and is quite light and drapes nicely.
Second thing I was looking for - the grey marl pleat skirt which I'm trying the top on with. I've actually got the midi one on here but it looks like a maxi on me - story of my life, being a shortie. The good thing is if I fold over the waistband once - I do have a midi or else I can leave it as a maxi #winwin
And I'll probably win no awards for styling here but I do think I'm good to go in this ensemble :) The comments on line says there is too much material around the top of the skirt but I didn't find this to be the case as I know some rather full pleated skirts can make you look exactly that - full. But this one seems to drape well without adding extra inches. In addition, I like the fact that I'm not in a pair of jeans - it's like getting the legs out but not really.
The midi version of the skirt is sold out online but the maxi version is available and is probably advisable for the tall ladies out there. There seemed to be plenty in store of the midi though. It came home with me along with the top.
And this is how I'd like to be wearing these pieces if I had all the rest of the pieces ;)
