Two Topshop Treats





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 ;)

    1. Well ... only if you want to? But you probably already have something tucked away in your wardrobe already. Everyone has a stripe lurking in there don't they?

  2. You are rockin' that skirt Sue! I love it! The top is such amazing dupe for the CDG one and following the success of my UO baseball top this is another fab little take on a Breton! There is one in my virtual basket as we speak! ;0) xx

    1. It's such a cute little top especially with the little black heart otherwise it wouldn't be anything that special. But it's a nice fit and actually works quite well with the skirt. Now that skirt I'm hoping is going to be a lynchpin piece this spring/summer.

  3. The dressing and the first two images were really wonderful and awesome to see. Especially the second image has been awesome with the full image as body has been outstanding and marvelous one. The dressing too has been fine, the location just added an extra beauty to you. I love to take such pictures like this in order to use such pictured for my research paper writing website which will be able to reach more number of audience worldwide. Willing to see such more images from you.

    1. I don't mind at all Frances - I would be more than flattered. It's a very you look especially with the trainers. And that pin was the starting point for the grey skirt - it's fab.
