I make no secret of the fact that I think Topshop have been on form recently, you only have to see my Instagram account to look at how many pictures include an item of theirs. Armed with a voucher last month I took to their website for some inspiration in the top department. I fancied a shirt and immediately this striped neck tie one stood out. As a back up I also ordered a coloured one with a pretty bold print for me. I liked it but wasn't 100% sure as I tend to wear more muted, subtle prints.

As it turns out, the striped one was huge, shapeless and probably too far on the pale side. It just did nothing for me which is such a shame as on the hanger it did look lovely (if not a little long).
The star one had a beautiful navy trim which finished it off perfectly. The fit was true to size and I actually liked the cheerful colour. I am yet to properly christen it, it is more on the smart side and Euro Disney and the flu haven't really called for a smart look yet! I am just hoping the voucher has gone on something that does have a place in my wardrobe as I do keep looking at it and questioning if it's too bright and flashy for me. Time will tell!
They've also gone and brought out the above in a navy palm tree print which is just as gorgeous. I will not be deterred though, going to stick with the more colourful one!

On the subject of Topshop tops I finally wore the one I bought at the start of the year. I love the way it falls longer at the back and has a high neckline. The print is the perfect ditsy floral size for me and the muted colours just what I like.
