I joined Instagram just over a year ago and in that time I have discovered a whole other world of fashion.
One that does not just revolve around those fashion stores that you find in major shopping centres but small Australian grown businesses that have fabulous and unique clothes and accessories.
Ruby and Lilli is one of those discoveries and how I have fallen in love with their range of tees and now a new line of accessories.
I love the thought behind these tees – they are a tee with a little bit extra.
I own a couple of their tees already and the quality is fabulous.
I was very excited when Ruby and Lilli launched their new collection and a new line of accessories – SALT | WATER.
The new collection included a couple of tops that are not their usual t-shirt material but still have the extra’s that I have come to expect – extra length and relaxed fit of both the tee and the sleeves to increase comfort.
The other thing I loved were the colours – Midnight, Coral/white, Navy/yellow and a gorgeous summer animal print.
I have set myself a bit of a challenge this summer and that is to embrace colour more.
My wardrobe consists largely of black, white and nude, so when I saw the Coral Bay Dawn I knew this was going to be a new addition to my wardrobe.
The white detailing around the edges of this top really takes it to the next level and makes the coral really pop.
As a women with a DD+ chest I can never not wear a bra and unfortunately the straps on those bra’s are not pretty dainty, so I love it when I find a sleeveless top that provides me with a little bit of extra bra strap coverage.
As I mentioned above these two tops are not made from the normal tee shirt material this one is made from a Deep Coral Semi-Opaque Woven Fabric. This can be worn with or without a cami underneath – I have added a white cami to this tee.
OUTFIT – Coral Bay Dawn $45.00 | Seed Heritage Straight Rip Denim Jean $89.95 | Blue Bungalow Pink & Raspberry Hive Jaipur Bag $39.00 | Ruby & Lilli Cable Beach Tassel set $24.95 – coral and hot pink.
My second choice of top was right slap bang in the middle of my comfort zone and I love it!
This top floats over my curves but still gives me shape, the low/high hemline giving a little bit of extra coverage over the bottom area.
I have added a plain black cami under this but it could easily be worn without.
This top is the perfect addition to any wardrobe as it can easily be dressed up and down. Wear with a pair of white jeans as I have or team with a pair of summer shorts or tuck in to a high waisted skirt.
You will have noticed that with both of these tops I have added a couple of gorgeous tassel necklaces.
Both of these are part of the new accessories line from Ruby and Lilli . I have a huge weakness for any jewellery with tassels, so it was a no brainer for me – I had to have these.
I choose the Cable Beach Tassel set $24.95 in the natural in coral and hot pink but these also come in turquoise.
OUTFIT – Marine Midnight $49.00 | Seed Heritage Straight Rip Denim Jean $89.95 | Louenhide Wiki – middle bag from the set $99.00 (gifted at the recent #everydaystyle 2 yr anniversary lunch) | Ruby & Lilli Cable Beach Tassel set $24.95 – coral and hot pink.
