Coral Cowl Neck Top

I do really love a cowl neck top and this one I got in Heatons for Mothers' Day back in March, was perfect for today as the sun is back out again! I love how the neckline hangs and the draping effect on the front - it's a very flattering top. 
Coral Cowl Neck/Draped Top - Heatons (out of stock)
Distressed Skinny Jeans (rolled up) - Maison Scotch (similar)
Black Patent Sandals - LK Bennett at The Outlet Village
Rose Cluster Necklace - SGS Shop
Instead of pairing the top with black trousers as I did the last time I wore it, I wore my bargainous distressed Maison Scotch jeans (last seen here) - turned up. This is a great way to get wear out of your skinny jeans this time of year. I've seen quite a few trendy fashion peeps doing this wide turn up so thought I'd give it a go!
Wearing with one of the new necklaces in my shop, which seems to have sneaked its way into my own collection! It's the Rose Cluster Necklace and I love how it sits high on the neckline.
Cowl necks seem to work better with less norkage - hence they work a treat on me! I guess the volume of fabric gives a fuller effect up top. Which is good for hippy girls too. As my own top has sold out in Heatons Online (tho may be available in-store), here are a few other lovely cowl neck tops in the shops at the moment....
Clockwise L-R
Pied a Terre, Avenue 57, Kaliko, Fat Face, Fenn Wright Manson (bargain!), Oasis
and I was surfing the Hot Squash site earlier and found no less than three lovely options..
All available at Hot Squash

  3. Those jeans worn rolled up look fab, a good half way house for people like me who are a bit scared of the real boyfriend jeans. Have never tried a cowl neck ......if it gives me boobs I might try!!!!!!!

  4. The cowl neck looks fab on u Avril, can't believe that's a Heatons top, it looks so expensive- perhaps that's all down to u! I'm still in love with those jeans, if I had thirty seconds in your house I would be grabbing them and your navy M&S boots! Xx
