Hush SS18 | Try On

This is the first season in a few years where I've actually ordered something from Hush at full price. For the past few seasons, I've felt the prices have gone above what I am willing to pay and I was hearing mixed views on quality but I've been lured back in in the past couple of weeks and kept looking at this skirt lovingly...

So I decided to spend some pre-loved proceeds on it and while I was at it I thought I'd order up a few extra bits and pieces to try on...everyone loves a bit of a try on! It all arrived bar the skirt (it's on a 5 week pre-order) and first things first, can we take a moment to appreciate how Hush deliveries are plastic free. Honestly amazing and I wish every other online retailer would take note.
Starting with the Fitzgerald Jacket which I spotted Nikki over at Midlife Chic try on recently and loved. I adore the cut and shape of a denim jacket anyway and they suit my body shape. This navy jersey material version is the perfect way to dress up that look - a more grown up denim jacket you could say. I really wish it came in a grey colour too.
Looks a bit unimpressive on me here as it's hard to photograph darker colours with the phone but trust me,  it's a great wardrobe basic
Next up, the grey hoodie and I'm usually reluctant to order something so basic as this at Hush prices but it had amazing reviews and I just wanted to try it for size. 
LOVE...though the batwing sleeves put me off a little as it's not as wearable under a coat. But honestly, I've not liked a hoodie this much on me ever. At this stage I was getting twitchy as the plan was to send all of this back and wait patiently on the skirt....

I'm a little on the fence with slogan t-shirts but the shape of this OK tank top was what encouraged me to order. The cotton is lovely and the slogan is glittery...making it a bit dressier than a white vest usually is. Colours are lovely too..
But it's too transparent for me - I'm wearing a vest underneath.  I like it lots but not enough.
Finally, this yellow 'Love Saves The Day' long sleeved tee is a less expensive way to enjoy this season's Hush slogan from their classic slogan jumper. The yellow won't be for every skin tone and I hoped it wouldn't suit me but I actually really loved it too...aarrgggh.

With this one too though it looks more opaque in the pictures than it is in real life. You need to zoom in on the pictures to see that it's a fine t-shirt material. Just so you know in case you want to order it. I've layered it over a basic Primark vest in these pictures.

And there you go - I want it all and it's all sitting in the box saying 'keep me, keep me' but bottom line, I can't afford it all. So I'm definitely going to send back the both tops and pounce when the sale starts during the summer. Assuming they're still there ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ. Still on the fence re the jacket and the hoody. What if the skirt arrives but doesn't work? Dilemmas...but I'll update this post when the skirt arrives.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed my little try on. I know I enjoy it when other bloggers do posts like this as it's great to see things 'in the flesh' so to speak.

  1. I ordered a dress and a skirt .... and I'm still deciding. If I keep both, I must not buy anything else the rest of summer. And that's no fun.

    I love seeing these try on sessions too - I'm just too lazy to post mine. x

  2. I love the jacket and the hoody! And I have my eye on their skirts too. I tried a navy dress recently (it'll be on my blog later) but it was a bit long in the body so had to go back. I did love the LOVE sweat though and kept that (so can't justify the hoody too)! Michelle x

  3. I think these posts are really helpful as it's good to see the clothes in 'real life'. I most definitely loved the jacket and hoodie and look forward to seeing what the skirt looks like. I do love Hush stuff, but it is a little pricey...
