PADDED MUSCLE TEE

Right lets begin with my padded muscle tee which if from Zara. Now I am well aware that this might not be to everyone’s taste, I for one love it and for me thats my number one goal to wear what I love. The padded muscle tee has been reinvented by the Frankie Shop, you would have seen a number of Instagramers wearing them. I find that the muscle tee can make the simplest of outfit standout. There are so many ways to style the tee, you can wear it with jeans, with a pair of high waisted trousers or even a skirt.

RIXO SKIRT

Talking of skirts that’s what I did when it came to styling the padded muscle tee here. I am wearing my Rixo Tina pleated leopard print midi skirt which comes in a crepe de chine material. The skirt has a slit on the front and a concealed zip at the side. A light and airy skirt that is so beautiful, if you like pleated skirt you’re sure to love this one.

ESPADRILLES

Moving on and onto my shoes, here I opted to wear my black Castaner Espadrilles which I bought from Net-A-Porter. The Castaner’s are a staple of mine during the Spring/Summer months or when I am on vacation. I absolutely love a pair of shoes that has tie ups or laces. The wedge heel is perfect for walking around in and I find them to be very comfortable too.

SHRIMPS BAG

As for my bag, after much deliberations I went with my gorgeous Shrimps bag in the style Willow. This boxy bag comes in a black and cream gingham faux pearl design. It features two beaded top handles, an inside pocket. The bag comes in the brands signature lining, which is the hand drawn daffodil design. If any of you are interested in purchasing a Shrimps bag, why not take a look at their new collection HERE.

FEDORA HAT

Next and onto my hat, I am wearing my black fedora from Whistles. This hat is a few years old now but I still love it and find that a hat always elevates my look and gives it that statement worthy feel I am looking for. Great for those sunny days to keep the rays out of my face. Which for me now a days is a regular thing, not complaining one bit!

FINISHING TOUCHES

Finally for the finishing touches first up I am wearing my Cat-Eye sunglasses in the style Rapture from Le Specs. As for my watch I opted to wear my Venice Moonphase Rose Gold Mesh from Filippo Loreti. Last but not least on my lips I am wearing Chanel Rouge Velvet Extreme lipstick in the shade 116 extreme to complete my look.

    ¡¡Hola!! Me encanta tu look. Si que llevaría una blusa de este estilo, la anotaré para futuras compras. Me gusta también que se sigan llevando las alpargatas de mimbre, son muy cómodas gracias a las cuñas y van con muchos estilos distintos. Besitos.

    When I had seen the words muscle tee I was thinking of those tops that I use to buy in the men’s section of Walmart tbh. I feel like if I wore one it would be with slacks. You look amazing Lovely!

    I often find muscle tees to be very masculine looking, so I love how you paired it with a skirt for a more feminine look!

    Love those espadrilles. I brought some in cream late last year but they were too small and was waiting for my size to be restocked! Will have to check back to see if it has.

    I love a good muscle tee when it’s made super feminine. I always couple mine with some skinny jeans or patterned trousers.
