Forget Becky with the Good hair! I present you with “Bonita with the Great Style” (and perhaps with good hair too! :-P) in TEL’s version of Lemonade. Yes, serving some freshly squeezed juicy, stylish portions in today’s post.
I absolutely love this outfit, which, by the way, contrary to what you may think at first glance is a combination of two separates, not a dress. The first separate is lime bodycon bodysuit with half sleeves made of a ribbed stretch fabric that feels so soft against the skin. The only hiccup, I found with this top is the plunging neck-line. I should have known when it was described as a “plunge bodysuit”. It’s got a deep V-neck neckline with cross-over straps. At the risk of sounding rather prudish, I’m not a fan of plunging necklines. Baring too much cleavage makes me uncomfortable just the same way some ladies wouldn’t bare their backs or midriffs (both of which I’m a big fan). My style is one of my biggest forms of self expression; being comfortable and confident in my outfits is for me equally as important as the stylishness of the outfit. The hassle of having to adjust/pull up a top constantly makes this top a no for me, sadly and annoyingly so, as I really really loved the combo. This colour is sold out but the black one is still available here.
The skirt is a wrap skirt in midi length with some colour blocking and print pattern and made of lightweight crepe. I love the uniqueness of the skirt with the print and colour blocking. It’s sold out in River Island but thankfully, it’s available on ASOS.
It’s interesting how I saw this skirt on its own and was indifferent to it but when I saw the lime top, I automatically did a mental matching of the two and was pleasantly pleased with the end result. The kick I get off these sort of “matchmaking” I can’t explain. 🙂
What do you think? How would you style the items differently?
