 Boots - Primark £18.00 (Last Summer)

My first experience with Yours Clothing has been a very pleasant one and I think I have now found a new addition to my favourite online shopping destinations, my bank account is in trouble.  The top I am wearing above was just one of my purchases from my first order.  I have a couple of other things which you will see soon in a future post.

The first time I wore this top I was unsure what to wear it with as I don't wear trousers a lot so styling tops is uncertain territory to me.  I decided because of the shape of the top, that a pair of jeggings would be fitted enough to let the top sit nicely and allow my boots to sit over the top.  I have since worn it with my skinny jeans because in all honesty jeggings make me feel less put together, you know what I mean? 

This is definitely one of those tops that look better on, because when I first took it out of the packaging I wasn't sure I was going to like it, but as soon as I put it on I loved it.  The material has a generous stretch to it so hugs the curves I want it to but because of the shape it skims over the ones I would rather disguise. There was a black waist tie to sit at the back, I didn't like the way the top looked when this was tied, so I cut it off.

These frill sleeves are so flattering!  Technically named Angel Sleeves and I now completely understand why, invented in clothes heaven, these are the sleeves I need on every single top I own! The top of my arms is an area I am really conscious of so the fact that these sleeves are not fitted is lovely, it means I can wear short sleeves without feeling the need to re-adjust all day and feel uncomfortable. 

Lets just take a minute to appreciate the dip side mesh panels, these are what turn this simple top into something a little more interesting.  These are also what I think turns it into a piece that can be worn casual or slightly more dressy if you wanted, very versatile.  Sitting just on my hips this cut makes me feel very feminine when they sway from the movement as I walk.

I will definitely be looking at more tops in this style from now on, I love the way they look and make me feel, I wish they had this is white, imagine how that would look with some denim shorts and cute sandles in the summer!

What would you style this top with?
