The Bardot

August 15, 2016

Despite being one of, if not the, fashion trend of the summer, I haven’t actually bought into the ‘bardot’ hype much. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve swooned over endless Instagram pics, YouTube videos and my favourite bloggers completely rocking them, but for some reason, I haven’t given it a good go myself.

You can’t even scroll through ASOS or Topshop without seeing a multitude of tops and dresses with the classic bardot neckline, so I finally took the plunge and bought this little striped number from H&M (similar here). Of course, it had to be striped! But, a small admission: my problem with these oh so popular tops is you can’t lift your arms up! Is it just me? Am I not wearing it right? Should I have bought a different size? Perhaps this is the price you pay for wearing something so bloomin’ trendy or perhaps I should’ve tried a few on before buying this one.

Either way, I do think it’s perfect for summer and it looks lovely with a pair of distressed denim shorts (I know, I literally haven’t taken these off recently. They have been washed – I promise!)



I’ve been reading (and pinning!) new A/W trends and planning my new season wardobe, is it wrong that I’m a little excited? I know I harp on and on about summer and my love for warmer weather but, perhaps rather unorthodoxly, I do love the arrival of autumn fashion.


Love, Harriet

    I completely agree with you, I love this style on other people. It looks sophisticated and classic, whilst still being fresh and summery! However, I find it so impractical not being able to lift my arms up, maybe I’m just too on-the-go for this look 🙂
