Spring is one of my favourite times of year, the grass is greener, the blossom is blooming and things are looking up. I love the smell of freshly cut grass as people begin gardening and gives me hope that it will soon be time for delicious bbq’s and outdoor events. When Elvi offered to send me some new pieces from their collection I had a spring outfit in mind. I’ve worked with them before here.
What better item to epitomise spring that a beautiful pleated skirt? This one by Elvi is actually a size 14 but as it’s Elvi their sizing is SUPER roomy. I’d usually opt for a 16 but I’d recommend sizing down a tad as I say, this fitted me much better. The beautiful metallic design on this skirt added a touch of class to what could be a very simple skirt. It’s an item that I will mix up with white shirts, long jumpers, long sleeve tops, vests etc. It is really versatile and I look forward to mixing it into my summer and even autumn/winter wardrobe! How lush would this be for Christmas!
The beautiful box top featured here is another gem from Elvi. I love the colour of this as grey is my absolute go to on any day of the week. The little studs simply add to the top making it a tad more elegant and sophisticated. My own little niggle with it is that it is dry clean only, or hand wash only if you like. As someone who generally throws everything into the basket and mixes their whites with whatever I am A TAD concerned I’ll spoil the top. That being said, I’ll try a cool wash and let y’all know how I get on should this be of interest to you.
