I was contacted a few weeks ago to see if i would like to collaborate with Arket for Instagram. As you can probably imagine, i was a little skeptical. Not because i didn’t want to work with them, i just wasn’t sure if they’d emailed the right person. I absolutely adore Arket, i’ve been buying from them for a long time. The quality and the style is ah-maz-zing and i especially adore the kids range so when in fact i was assured it was me they wanted i squealed internally and floated about for the rest of the day! My collaboration was only supposed to be for Instagram, but i loved the images and the dresses so much, i decided to tell you a little bit more about them over here.
The first dress is an A-line Satin Dress in a Light Beige. As most of you are aware, i’m pretty pregnant right now, but i wasn’t letting that get in the way of this job so i picked two dresses that will see be through pregnancy and beyond. Thats another reason why i love Arket. I can dress my bump without compromising my style, and that feels amazing as when everything else is changing, thankfully your style can stay the same!
I kept it casual for this outfit, cropped jeans and my new flats from Marks and Spencer. They’re a Martiniano Glove Shoes dupe, which i will one day buy for myself, but until then i will make do with these guys and of course my trusty Mango Glove Pumps too. My jeans are Topshop Maternity, they’ve got an under the bump band which haven’t been a favourite before but i like these, i just need to wait for the bump to grow a bit so i can stop pulling them up.
My Second Arket dress is a Knitted Long-Sleeve Wrap Dress. This one really got me excited. it’s a heavy knit so it sits really well across your body and doesn’t cling or ride up or across, in other words, no risk of flashing! I’m really looking forward to getting some milage from this dress, it will be perfect for breastfeeding number two, when they arrive.
I know it wasn’t the intention of Arket to make these dresses for pregnant ladies, but they’ve really done me a solid here and i will be forever grateful. I now just need for the eff-ing sun to come out so i can take my jeans off and swan about with my hardly shaved legs on display.
It’s a bit of a new/old thing, me posting a style blog and i have to say i really enjoyed it. I hope you did, and you find the content valuable i’m thinking of doing some more as soon as the sun comes back out. Have a great week.
