What a lovely pair of clavicles.
I'm so excited about this top.
I don't know if it's the colour, the exposed shoulders or the unusual billowing shape….something about it got me going as soon as I saw it on the website.
The only seed of doubt was regarding the length as this sits just past waist height - not cropped per se but not my usual long length either.
Having worn this a couple of times the length is actually a good call. It's quite a voluminous top and so having it any longer would only serve to make me look round - having it a little shorter balances the proportions out. It does however mean that high waisted jeans or soft trousers are the safe option - nobody needs to see my muffin top in the area of real estate between the meeting of top and bottom.
I like to wear it with more casual bottoms/shoes. You could dress it up and march around in heels but it's such an intensely feminine and exposed neckline that I just don't feel comfortable going all the way.
I am quite tempted to get the navy but also trying to be sensible and just enjoy this one…yes, I'm really trying to be sensible these days!
I wore this out to breakfast with Simone this morning. We like to try new spots and today it was Park House in Jumeirah. The interior ticks all the Instagram-worthy boxes, the coffee was good, service relaxed and friendly but the food ranked as "just okay". It's a pet peeve when a dish is marketed as coming with turkey and yet what turns up looks like it's from a processed packet. Still the location is fantastic - right on the beach and with the weather starting to cool down, I'll definitely head back and try something else on the menu.
Trousers: so-old-they're-vintage from Zara
Shoes: Miu Miu
Have a lovely Thursday all!
