Bardot Top & Coral Jeans (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)

Sometimes i find an outfit or a piece that i put on and it instantly feels fun. In a world that's gone to pot quite frankly, its nice to feel a little fun now and again, and taking it from the simple pleasures in life, like this outfit, is no bad thing in my books.

This fun, flirty and fluted bardot top is from Bows Boutiques and i absolutely adore it on. The soft fabric makes it light and airy, but the cut and fit made me feel fabulous. The swing of the sleeves the, cut across the shoulders and the draping to the front quickly made this my new favourite top to wear. And yes it does ping off the shoulders sometimes, but not horrendously so, you'll be pleased to know. It was actually far more comfy to wear than i thought it would be, with its thick sturdy elasticated top it made the fabric sit nicely across the shoulders.

For a cool spring day I paired it with these coral jeans that i have had for an actual age, but still love them. I went through a coloured jeans thing a few years ago, collecting them in as many colours as i could get my grubby little mitts on, but then i grew out of that fickle phase and passed all of the jeans, bar these, on to charity.
These i take out year on year and still really love to wear. They aren't really my usual colour scheme, i'm more of  a red than a coral kind of girl, but there's something endearing about them that just makes me keep them and keep reaching for them.

The simple 3 piece outfit (4 if you count the clutch bag) was finished with my creamy-nude wedges, the neutral shoe of choice that will simply work hard for you all summer long. They're almond toe and wedge heel make them really comfy and i absolutely love the weaved detailing on the heel.
Royal Fashionista Princess Kate has a very similar pair that she seems to wear very often, and i can totally see why, they just go so, so well with just about everything! Demure and classy. Me likey!

  10. Sometimes we forget how important it is to just feel excited out our clothes! I love the fun sleeves and off the shoulder style. Glad it doesn't ping off the shoulders too much.

  12. Ah you have those Lotus wedges that I've seen on another blogger (What Lizzy Loves), they're particularly nice. I'm gutted that Lotus shoes don't fit me actually, as they don't do half sizes. Boo! Such a nice colour combo here, it's like you should be in St Lucia or something rather than The Vale!! xx
