I never thought I’d wear such a bright top, I don’t even remember how it landed in my basket… must have been a good offer or a pretty Boden advert – are you as suckered by those as I am?! It seems to be a popular choice and is sold out in some size/colourway combos. I have a few similar silk or silk-mix tops now and they are great to throw on in the evening with a pair of dark jeans and look smart but not overly so.
This Eliza top is a viscose-silk mix, and has a lovely chunky zip detail on the back although I haven’t opened it yet, fits over my head with ease as it is. Its 3/4 length sleeves are just the length I like, in fact wearing some full length sleeves the other day felt odd and uncomfortable, I am so used to this shorter style now.
I picked up these Indigo by Clarks Women’s Heath Harrier Ankle Boots the other day but I am struggling with them. They’re extremely comfortable, a very good height to walk around in but the opening is quite wide as there is no zip, and I can’t get skinny jeans to stop bunching up, or straightleg jeans to go wide enough over the opening. Will try them with tights and a dress/skirt and see how they look.
