I have indulged a little bit too much on new clothes and shoes this summer. I wanted a whole new wardrobe revamp and I think that I’m eventually getting somewhere.
For a while now I’ve been wanting to purchase a raincoat of some sort. It’s hard to predict what the weather is going to do and even when it’s raining at the moment it’s still quite warm. So a raincoat seemed to be the perfect fit for the climate!
I’ve been keeping my eyes out for a yellow Mackintosh style coat and haven’t been able to find one anywhere! The ones online seem to be really high priced and with it being quite bold, I didn’t want to order something that expensive when I couldn’t try it on. So I’ve been building my wardrobe up waiting for a yellow raincoat to pop up in stores.
Then the other day I was shopping with my mum and there it was in the window of TopShop. THE coat. I quickly went inside to snatch one up and among the few that were left there was one in my size.
It is great. With being quite tall I find that TopShop coats are never long enough in the sleeve. But with this raincoat it has the option to roll the sleeves up so that they’re three quarter length as it is lined with this really cute blue gingham style fabric, making it a perfect fit!
I wore it all around my Scotland holiday and found out that it keeps the rain out amazingly.
If you’re looking for something bright, bold and beautiful, this is definitely the coat for you.
I’ve been meaning to purchase some DropDead clothing for a long time now. They have had some pretty cute things on their website that I’ve had my eyes on for a while, and well… when this jumper hit the sale I couldn’t resist.
The clothes are quite pricey and I wouldn’t be able to purchase from the shop whenever I wanted too, but that’s what makes getting something from there so special. I have been dead excited for the parcel to arrive!
I initially just bought the yellow jumper but on purchase the website offered to throw in a tank top for free which was a no brainer. I quickly accepted thinking it was too good to be true, but it wasn’t! Both items arrived today and I love them equally.
I am super impressed with the quality of the jumper, I was worried that it was going to be a bit coarse but it’s completely the opposite. The fabric is so soft and light which makes it easy to wear in the summer and equally perfect to layer up in the winter. I absolutely love the design and the tears in the sleeves and body of the piece makes the item really unique. The shade of yellow used is also great. Sometimes yellows can look too bright that they take the colour out of you, or insanely neon which I really didn’t want. But this is subtle and almost pastel like. I think it compliments my skin tone quite well. I imagine I’ll be wearing this a lot in the summer!
The freebee is also amazing. I mean, when do you ever get an awesome free top thrown into the mix? Again, the quality is great. It’s kind of tshirt material but really soft and comfy. The seams look like they’re inside out which is something that I really love about the design of the top. It makes it that bit different. Last summer I went through a craze of cutting out sleeves in my band tshirts pretty much like this DropDead one so the design is really down my street. The cuts in the arms are quite low which is absolutely fine for me as I think they look super cute if you wear a nice bra underneath, but some people might feel a little too exposed. I’m sure it would look just as good with a vest top though!
All in all I’m really impressed with DropDead and might have to start saving up for another spending spree!
