I love the drama of statement sleeves and dark florals at this time year, so pairing this sheer puff sleeve top and floral print skirt was an obvious choice. The skirt is an old one (previously seen here), while the top is a more recent addition to my wardrobe. I ordered it along with the blush pink sundress from Oeyes (as well as a brown shoulder bag, which I’ll feature in a future post).
Ordering online is always a bit of a gamble, especially when it’s a brand you haven’t ordered from before. Often the sizing varies from item to item, so you have to check the measurement guide rigorously. For reference I’m wearing a medium. The fit is not perfect – it does gape a little between the buttons. I will probably add stitches to prevent this as it’s easy enough to slip on over my head. The other downside is that the mesh sleeves are quite itchy, but I’m hoping a good soak in fabric softener will remedy this.
I stuck to a red and black colour palette for maximum impact, adding a red clutch and matching jewellery. This clutch is actually a multiway bag from Zara and can also be used as a crossbody and belt bag. It proved to be so useful that I bought it black too!
