This was a total impulse buy. I was in no way looking to buy a new tunic but it just happened! I love shopping in Hull with my mum although she is very good at persuading me to buy stuff (not that much persuasion is usually required!) This isn't the kind of style I would usually go for I tend to like closer fitting arms I'm not a kimono top gal, It looks like I made an exception!
(The styling on this is a little thrown together-would love to have a necklace- but I was determined to get a review out before it actually sells out!)
The neck line looks a little big here but it's part of the style and sits quite nicely when I'm not posing! The fabric is quite shiny and feels pretty synthetic although this is part of the draw for this top, It's an unusual heavy weight crisp synthetic. One caution with this top is that a thread was pulling in the belt which I will have to sew up (to her credit the sales lass did take 10% off for me). This fabric is a little unforgiving in bright light and I would recommend a smooth pair of leggings underneath, it still feels pretty nice to wear tho.
I'm actually quite proud of my legsies at the moment. I'm not doing anything to them other than the odd (and I do mean odd!) cycle ride and lots of walking around at work. In the past I have avoided wearing leggings because of the pre-conceived notion that a sz22 gal shouldn't! I'm glad they are creeping back into fashion and my wardrobe too!
This ring is fantastic isn't it?! Its from H&M and my mum bought it for me, It's not a perfect match but who cares it's amazing! The flower is from my glass arrangement on my windowsill (from TK Maxx) and sort of inspired the colour combination. I love pretty things and colour in my house!

Hope you are all well. In life news I am about to embark on a new job tomorrow and am nervous and excited at the same time. It is a bit of a landmark in my career as it sees my return to a profession that I had all but given up on following my redundancy 12 months ago. It has been a turbulent year however fate (and a decent interview!) has landed me back into the right spot. I hope to share more including my work wardrobe soon.
