POM POM



So pom pom trimming. That’s my new thing.

It started last week. I went to see my friend Nikki’s new clothing line and the majority of her tops, shorts and playsuits come bedecked with pom pom trimming. That was it. I was captivated. Literally. I bought this pair, a playsuit and the pair I am wearing today...

How big does my hair look? It's apparently taking over my head.

And now I cannot stop. No really. Consider this a revolution of sorts!

I like the fact that it adds that "something". It’s the kind of detail that is made for summer days and everything I have acquired to date will be making it into my suitcase for my August holiday.  Oh god, I cannot wait for that time!

Anyway, here are my picks!
pompoms
1. Urban Outfitters kaftan – Link! – this is the most expensive pick but I like the idea of getting a kaftan for beach situations. I think this is also pretty enough to wear out in the evening.

2. New Look top – Link! – A cheap number from New Look, here the detail is very subtle across the top edge but it’s there. I also like the flow on this one.

3. Missguided top – Link! – I am 100% going to buy this. It will be great to wear with shorts/jeans. It’s just a good basic with a twist.

4. ASOS shorts – Link! – Elephant print? Sure! As long as pom poms are involved.

5. Topshop top – Link! – This looks like a good basic in a versatile olive colour. My only concern here is what would happen with the boobage situation within this style but let’s not worry about that now.

6. Boohoo shorts – Link! – Possibly my first ever boohoo purchase? I have never ordered anything from that site because the quality scares me but I’m going to take a risk here. This is especially the case because I think these may reveal a little more arse than I would like. At the very least they will make excellent jim-jam bottoms J

7. Boohoo kimono – Link! – I like the idea of this but I wonder if it will translate as a nylon sheet. Maybe I can order it and if horrific can add it to the items for a forthcoming “When online orders go bad” post J

So that’s where I am with pom poms. Oh and if you like Nikki’s stuff then send her a message on Instagram – here’s her profile page. All fabrics are sourced/made in Bali. The floral pattern is my personal favourite!

See you guys tomorrow!
