The £12 Top You Need

This top is £12 my friends. OK, it’s £12.60 but “the £12 top you need” is a lot more catchy than “the £12.60 top you need” no?

I’ve been eyeing up tops like this for a while since they’ve been all over the insta girls who live somewhere weather appropriate for a while. At £12.60 I’m tempted to go back for every colour . .

Why you need the £12 top

Because I say so.

  1. who doesn’t love a bit of shoulder? It’s so understatedly sexy it hurts
  2. The bow sleeves. Do I need to explain?
  3. This top will go with anything
  4. The elasticated neckline stays. This is hard to find in an off the shoulder top – particularly one for £12.60
  5. Did I mention it was £12.60
  6. Buy it.

Layering Your Jewels

We all know I’m a big fan of layering when it comes to my clothes, but layering jewellery is something I’ve only really just started doing.

I love those ready made necklaces from the likes of Zara with a few readily layered, but I honestly cannot be bothered with green fingers and stained tops. I feel like the older I’ve got the more I appreciate metals that won’t go ‘off’.

I was sent a selection of pieces from Jewellery Box to choose from and I kind of had a Eureka moment and thought, “what if I put them all on. . at the same time?” and I did, and it was good. Sometimes I feel like these little dainty necklaces can get lost if you’re not wearing a low necked top so layering them helps them to stand out more.

I feel the same with dainty rings, I’m generally a lanky person and that applies to everything, including my fingers. As a lanky fingered gal I find dainty rings can sometimes accentuate the lanky-ness and get a tad lost. Enter layering. These two rings on the same finger have way more of an impact than if they were on separate fingers –see what I mean?

Jewellery box has the biggest range of pieces like this for such affordable prices, I honestly didn’t know when to start when I was looking. It’s so nice to have such a great range for affordable prices and better still it won’t turn your skin green. When it’s only £7.35 for a sterling silver necklace dipped in 18t gold you can afford to layer!

    Oh my god those sleeves are absolutely heavenly. I really want to start wearing more off the shoulder tops this summer, they’re so subtly sexy and pretty

    Love the photos and your style (as always). I just got the same top in white and denim. Will soon have to make more space in my wardrobe for all the off-the-shoulder tops 🙂

    Off the shoulder tops are just my favourite at the moment! Already stocked up on a fair few and I can’t see myself stopping just yet!
