We are now into week 10 of lockdown (wow) and I seem to be buying A LOT of clothes lately considering I’m not going anywhere any time soon. But, hey ho, playing dress up in the house has been fun! I have been enjoying stocking up on some funky beer garden and BBQ outfits over the last few months, even if these outfits don’t get to see a beer garden this year (sigh), they will look cute in my own garden!
I am absolutely OBSESSED with Motel’s new collection at the moment. The snake prints, the vibrant colours, the shirt dresses… I want it all! I treated myself to a few bits and they are giving me all the summer vibes. So, here is what I got…
This has got to be one of my favourite prints ever! It is kinda out of my usual fashion comfort zone but, I am loving it. Green is a colour I don’t think I have EVER worn so I was intrigued to see if I would like it on myself or not. This dress is ideal for a BBQ or a festival (not that they will be happening soon, but we can dream) and it is so easy to wear. I wear mine with a chunky black and silver chain belt and some Dr Marten style boots or black high top converse. I think this would also be so nice on holiday as a bikini cover-up, worn open with some black denim shorts. Also, the quality of the material is spot on.
Puff sleeves are probably my favourite trend at the moment, they are so flattering and can be dressed up or down. This vibrant top can be paired with blue jeans or white denim shorts for a cute beer garden outfit. It has a tie-up detail on the front which is so summery and super comfortable to wear. Again, I think this would be so nice on holiday as a cover-up with some orange or white bikini bottoms.
So, because I love the dragon print so much I had to get it in another colour… I love this style of dress from Motel as they can be worn in the summer with a belt and some chunky trainers, or in the cooler seasons with a white tee and some boots. I think the slit up one side makes it so flattering and adds a funky edge to it. They have also brought this dress out in a gorgeous mint colour!
Another unreal print from Motel! Seriously, they are killing the print game at the moment. This halter neck cropped top has a backless tie-up detail which you can wear in a bow or long at the back. The only issue I find with this top is there is zero support, so a stick-on bra or some body tape wouldn’t go amiss!
There is so much more I want from Motel’s recent collection but everything sells out so quickly! Heres a little collage of what else is on my wish list…
Thank you for reading, keep staying safe!
