Even though it’s supposed to be the Summer time, there has been some occasional days of colder more autumnal weather and consequently, I’ve still been wearing casual leisure wear, like jogging bottoms and jackets.
I find that these pieces of clothing are comfortable to wear at home or going for a walk, easy to mix and match with other pieces in my wardrobe and simple to wash with NO ironing involved, which is always a bonus.
I have recently been gifted the following three items of leisure wear from Femme Luxe, and would like to say thank you to them for adding more colour and style into my outdoor leisure wear.
Mauve Hoodie and Skinny Joggers Tracksuit Set- Bellamy
This simple mauve hoodie and skinny joggers tracksuit set is a gorgeous shade of dusky lilac and the soft feel of the fabric on both the inside and out make this outfit a truly comfortable piece of leisurewear.
The pullover hoodie features a drawstring hood and front kangaroo pocket with cuffed arms and hem, whilst the jogging bottoms have a wide drawstring waistband, making them sit extra snugly on the waist and they are finished off with two side pockets and cuffed ankles.
The fabric of this tracksuit set is made up of 65% cotton and 35% polyester, making it cosy to wear and easy to wash at 30 degrees.
I chose a size 14 and the hoodie is a nice fit, definitely true to its size, but the joggers are a snug fit on my legs, although to be fair, they are a skinny fit, so I guess they are supposed to be fitted. Personally for me, I would like a wider leg jogging bottom, but that’s purely down to my shape and not the Bellamy jogger fit.
With a price tag of £41.98, this is very reasonably priced for a good quality tracksuit lounge wear set.
Sage Checked Print Oversized Button Up Pocket Shacket – Isabella
I had previously received a navy checked version of this fabulous shacket, which I reviewed earlier in the year.
However, my 13 year daughter took a fancy to it and so I was left without one. Fortunately for me, I was then gifted the sage check colour of the same shacket and this one I’m keeping for Me!!
The warm fleece lined shacket features small silver stud buttons, two front breast pockets and two side pockets, ideal for popping your hands into. The fabric of this top is made up from 50% cotton and 50% polyester mix and I ordered a medium size top, just like I had for the navy check top.
The Isabella sage checked print oversized button up pocket shacket features a mix of dark sage green and white checks, which can easily mix and match with plenty of outfits, from jeans and crop trousers to shorts. The sleeves on this shacket are a little long for me, but as they have a press stud cuff they sit on my wrist quite comfortably.
As I said earlier this shacket is available in many different shades which include rose, mink, black, lilac, pink, navy and grey checked patterns and for such a multi-purpose top this is a real bargain at just £25.99.
Red Tie Dye ‘Guns N Roses’ T-Shirt Dress – Maria
Something completely different to finish off this post with this multi coloured polyester and elastene mix red tie dye ‘Guns N Roses’ t-shirt mini dress.
The first thing that stands out is the bright pockets of the tie dye colour design which covers this whole dress. The main feature on the front of the dress is the large print logo of the very famous rock band of the 80’s and 90’s, ‘Guns N Roses’. It is a lightweight and short length piece, which for me means, I would wear it either as a nightshirt or t-shirt rather than a mini dress.
Designed with a crew neck and short sleeves, the stretchy fabric is perfect for Summer. Although it is a size small, which is equivalent to a 8-10 size, it does fit snugly but as with polyester, it does stretch the more you wear it. The cost of this dress is £35.98.
So whether you are a fan of the rock band ‘Guns N Roses’ or just love exuberantly coloured tie dye, this dress is the perfect combination of both and a wonderfully alternative piece to add to either my daughter’s or my wardrobe. But I have to say my daughter looks much better in this piece than I do 😉
Femme Luxe have many discount offers ranging from 15% – 50% at the moment and some of the above items of clothing are included. So if you’re quick you might be able to bag yourself a bargain!
Again, I have to say a big thank you to Femme Luxe for gifting me these items and asking me to review these pieces from their lounge and casual wear seasonal pieces.
