Cream Knits & Coral Bits

I never thought I'd be someone that bought a 'cropped' anything.

My hips are wide (wide being an understatement), so buying a piece of clothing that accentuates that fact is a little bit far from my 'cover everything up in the comfiest way possible' motto. It actually came about as a bit of an ASOS induced accident; why things can't be described properly I have no idea, but either way I've decided to keep this knitted top from Monki (£10) - and actually, I kinda like it!

Personally, the thought of wearing just a bra underneath is not something I'd be doing in a hurry - rolls, anyone? - also, I still consider this cold weather, so I'm more than happy to layer up! So, I paired it with a v-neck coral top (£6) to add a bit of colour!
Keeping to the coral theme, I added a swipe of Revlons Kiss Me Coral Lip Gloss (£6.99) and, although it's not technically coral - at all, I've really been loving a bit of The Body Shops Honey Bronzer, Shade Light (£13). It's absolutely perfect for lighter skin tones & adds just the right amount of 'sun kissed' tan to my winter-y pale chops!

This is my first Monki purchase & I'm so pleased with the quality and thickness of the piece. For £10, too, it's an absolute steal! I can imagine I'll be getting plenty of wear out of this and in true 'me' style; I'll probably end up wearing it until it no longer resembles a jumper. 

What are you enjoying wearing at the moment?
