all that's missing are a few pretty tops!

I realise I may be being slightly optimistic here as as I sit here writing this post you could be mistaken for thinking it was November and not March! However as we should be heading towards being able to disregard our coats and knits sometime soon, I decided it might be a good time to review my recent purchases and see what's missing. I've stocked up on jeans, added a few jackets, even a couple of dresses but the one area I haven't made too many purchases is tops and blouses.
As I popped into my local River Island over the weekend to try on the duster coat from my last post (though alas they didn't have it! 😞) I did happen across some more very tempting things....resulting in a new top purchase! Voila!

(Uhh...yes that is a fiver in my phone cover....the DD put it in there for safe keeping!)

It's a beaut isn't it! A whiff of Chloe about it me-thinks! It's hard to tell from the pic but it has gold flecks all over it. The front is lined but the back and arms are very sheer. I'll being wearing a cami under it. I'm wearing a size UK 10.

As I went in search of the above top online, this also caught my eye. I can see myself placing a cheeky little order for this!

Elsewhere on the High Street I found this! I probably should stay away from black but I just can't help myself.....I couldn't resist including this in my findings from Mango.

One colour I really could do with adding a bit more to my wardrobe is navy. This Topshop blouse would fill that hole nicely!

Now here's another I actually purchased last week....I immediately thought how brilliantly it would work under my dungarees. It did not disappoint....the evidence can be found here on my Instagram feed!

And last but not least.....I have succumbed to the trumpet sleeve! I'm now a fully fledged member of the *watch your sleeves in the soup* club 😆

So with my recent additions I think I've bolstered the pretty top collection in my wardrobe....next time I think I'll take a look at some more casual options......sweatshirts, tee's and shirts! Leave me a comment if there are other parts of the wardrobe you would like me to cover!

  1. Oh wow that blue fluted stripe one in your second picture is lovely! My sister also keeps a £5 note in her phone case, it's a good idea.
