FASHION || FEMME LUXE HAUL

*This post contains PR items from Femme Luxe.

Another day, another haul! Who remembers my Recent Buys & New News posts from back in the day haha? Well, today I have a little Femme Luxe haul to share with you all and I'm so excited to talk about some of these items.

All the products in this post were sent to me by Femme Luxe in exchange for a blog post. This doesn't mean that my opinions are biased as I have worked with this brand on a few occasions now, and have loved most of the products I've tried. 


Moving on, let's talk about my favourite piece from this haul - the Grandad Vest! This Oversized Houndstooth Sleeveless Jumper is my ultimate accessory to make an outfit go from a 7 to a 10/10. It is sooo cosy, I can get away with wearing it on its own without a coat (if it's not raining of course, as then I will be wearing my raincoat lol), and with the pattern being very on-trend this year it will make any outfit stand out. I like to wear it with an all-black outfit, like in the image above I'm wearing faux suede trousers and a ribbed high neck top which is what I wore when I went to do some Christmas shopping at the beginning of December.

The quality of this jumper is really good, it feels thick and cosy, and the pattern is continuous so feels more luxurious than the price tag. Although this might not be everyone's cup of tea, there are so many ways of styling this jumper! I also tried it on with a White Pleated Shirt Dress and a pair of strappy heels and woweee I looked so good if I do say so myself! It's definitely a versatile piece of clothing that can be dressed up or down for any occasion and I must say that I've worn it plenty of times since receiving my order. 


The white shirt dress looks really nice on, very flattering thanks to the pleated details on the waist and the cuffed sleeves make it the perfect going out dress (or maybe I should say 'the perfect staying-in dress'. My only issue with this dress is that it is so see-through - as in you can see e v e r y t h i n g.
I don't think I would wear it on its own unless I had a seamless bodysuit underneath as underwear, but I think it looks great paired up with the houndstooth sleeveless jumper as you can see in my picture.


Moving onto my second favourite item from this haul - the famous Cuffed Joggers from Femme Luxe. I have tried these joggers in 3 different colours now (including white and copper) and I think that the black ones are my favourite as they are the best quality I've tried so far, super comfy and stretchy around the waist (a very important feature) and they are not see-through which was an issue for me with the white joggers. 

The pockets are super deep so there's plenty of room for snacks (also a very important feature). As you can see in the image above, I have paired up my joggers with another ribbed high neck top - I own about 10 of these in different colours as they are really comfy and my favourite long-sleeved tops to wear in Autumn and Winter. 


Last but not least, is the Pink Ribbed Loungewear Set which I had my eyes on for a while in different colours but thought I'd go for the pink set as Spring is just around the corner. I went for the size S/M which is a UK 8-10 because the size up was a UK 12-14 so I thought it would be too big, but I now wish that I had gone for the bigger size, as the S/M is pretty much a Small rather than a Medium. The quality of this set isn't the best as it is quite thin and see-through (I wore seamless nude underwear with this set), so it might be a set to only wear around the house. I usually tend to go for sets that I can wear outdoors for walks etc, so this one isn't the best loungewear set I've tried. The sizing was a bit confusing too, I think they should just stick to their usual sizing as I tend to go for 10-12 (as this is what usually is meant by an S/M) as this set is too tight for me. I could still wear the top as that is slightly oversized, so if you like the look of the top only then it might still be a worthwhile purchase as the leggings are poor quality and don't have any stretch in them.

Overall, I really love the knitted vest and the black joggers, the shirt dress is nice but too see-through to wear on its own and the loungewear set is just not what I had in mind when picking my order.
