This Spring the UK has been blessed with a lot of sun which is amazing! I had to celebrate, of course, by making a mini Spring/ Summer Topshop order, and let’s just say I’m very much feeling striped clothing right now. I’m trying to work on a capsule wardrobe, so have been cutting down on clothes hauls, but I felt as though both the dress and skirt will be able to carry me through multiple Summers. I’m new to this so my fingers are crossed!
The Shelby Striped Asymmetric Button Dress
I absolutely adore this dress, from the print to the fabric to the fit. It’s such an easy piece to wear and I love that I can dress it down with Converse or dress it up with a nice pair of heels. However, I have one word of warning. You larger chested ladies are going to have to search for a bra with the least amount of padding possible, or you’re going to have to go up a size. I’m wearing a size 8, but the only bra I own that I can wear it with is a Clavin Klein triangle bra, with ZERO padding.
Striped Linen Paperbag Mini Skirt
Although this isn’t the most versatile skirt, it is such a flattering fit. When paired with a simple white tee it screams effortlessly put-together. Of course I love the stripes, but I also love the button down detailing on it. We’ve been seeing a lot of this season and I’m loving it. I’m really trying not to buy everything with this detail and to only invest in the pieces I really love.
