Happy bank holiday weekend, everyone! Hope you have all had a good one. The weather actually held up really well despite dire thunderstorm warnings, which was a welcome surprise!
Today’s post is part two of my collaboration with Zaful. If you’d like to see part one, please click here. They very kindly sent over a couple of their summer pieces for me to try out, so that’s exactly what I’m doing! Before we begin, I’d like to tell you that while I received these clothes for free, all thoughts and opinions are my own. So let’s jump in!
Striped ruffles rib top
When I first saw this top on the website, I was NOT expecting a crop top. The product pictures make it seem like a regular top, but luckily I saw the pictures that accompanied the product reviews so I knew what I expect. It is only available in one size at the moment, although it is super stretchy so I imagine there is some flexibility either way. The fact that it is stretchy also means that you’re able to pull the sleeves down if you want to wear it off shoulder, which is a bonus.
I pretty much never wear crop tops, but I have to say, I really like this one. It’s comfortable, the fabric is soft and breathable, and you can’t really go wrong with black and white stripes. It is also very flattering, and it looks good with a skirt or with high-waisted jeans or even dungaree shorts. It retails for £10.66 which is a fair price for something that is so versatile and stylish. It is also available in red and white stripes.
Tiered bowknot cutout mini dress
If you’ve been following my last few style posts, you will see that I am having quite a moment with yellow. It seems like everyone is, but for me, it’s a way to get out of a clothing rut. Don’t get me wrong – I love colour – but when it comes to buying clothes I always seem to revert to white, black or navy.
This mustard coloured dress is unlike anything I have in my wardrobe. The colour is so deliciously retro, but the cut and wrap style make it current. The dress is 100% polyester so it doesn’t feel especially high quality, but for a little over £13.00, you can’t really expect it to be. Having said that though, this doesn’t feel cheap. It’s just more picnic in the park than it is summer wedding. So if you’re looking for an inexpensive, feel-good buy, I will 100% recommend this little number.
My favourite thing about the dress is the back, where it comes together in a little bow. It just adds that extra something to the whole outfit, and I found myself constantly twirling every I passed the mirror just so I could catch a glimpse.
I’m a size 10, and I bought this dress in a medium. You can check it out here.
Thanks for reading, I would love to know what you think! Do you have any favourites that you’re loving? Also, a special thank to you my husband, Darius, who took all these pictures of me flouncing around in our garden. 😀
