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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
