Autumnal Bardot | FASHION

8 Oct 2017

I am that cliche blogger that loves everything Autumnal, crunchy leaves and seasonal changes in the environment make me giddy and I practically wet myself at the proposal of a coffee date where I can get my pumpkin spiced latte (disclaimer: I've already had three this week).  It's also the time of year my wardrobe becomes more exciting to me, warmer weather is not my friend and I often find myself irritated by being too hot - didn't quite think that one through when I picked Florida as my wedding destination, eh?

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Curve Fashion Festival and picked up a few items for my capsule wardrobe for the A/W fashion cycle, making a conscious effort to pick clothes I enjoyed rather than keeping on trend as such.  Now, I'll always enjoy the catwalks and keeping up with my super trendy follow bloggers on Instagram, but there comes a point where you can't keep up financially and ultimately those on trend pieces gather dust in the wardrobe after you've done your blog photos.  So when I hit the Lovedrobe/Topsy Curvy stand to catch up with the wonderful ladies there, I checked out what they had in their ever affordable lines and came away with two bardot tops. 

This one is the 3D embroidered floral bardot top and is a massive bargain at just £9 in the sale.  I teamed it with a pair of my favourite skinny jeans and this last season Elvi biker jacket, popped on some boots and painted on a deep berry lip. The sleeves on the bardot top have this fantastic tie detailing and the top is a generous fit, it's slighty too big on the top but if you have a larger chest then this works in your favour.

I think this top will work really nicely with the jackets and layers I have in the wardrobe, it's a really versatile piece and I've had so many compliments on it.  It washes a dream as well, having worn this bad boy a fair few times I can honestly say the quality of fabric for the price point is superb.  Not bad for £9!
