Try On Haul | Mela London

One of the brands I always seem to gravitate towards in New Look is Mela London. They've got an amazing selection of workwear items and florals prints, all very girly which is completely my style. The clothing is good quality but still affordable, and though everything is on trend it's always good for a few seasons. Unfortunately my local New Look didn't have much Mela London items in stock so I made an order on their website stocking up for Spring and Summer.

A floral dress is a staple in my wardrobe. They're perfect for wearing to work, but also at the weekend if I'm heading for a bit of retail therapy or out for lunch so I decided to get a couple of different ones. My favourite one is the Black floral print long sleeve dress. I don't have many long sleeve dresses but it's so much more convenient than trying to find a cardigan to go with it while the temperatures aren't that high. This £18 dress is a wrap style with cute little frills along the bottom. The light, chiffon style material will also be perfect for Summer and I might be able to brave it without tights.

The next dress, the Clustered floral print wrap dress, is a little better for warmer weather with it's short sleeves and bolder colours. Again with the wrap style it creates a flattering silhouette but I found the bust of this one a little revealing for work so I'll be wearing a vest top underneath. A nice little work outfit for £20.

Find a dress you like and buy it in every colour? I feel like that's what I've done with this Navy floral print wrap dress. I quite like how the navy looks with my blonde hair and even though the shape is completely the same the floral print is very different. This dress was a little more expensive at £22 but I think that's just because it's a newer design. I'm a little between sizes and I sized down with these dresses and it was definitely the right option. The sleeves don't drown me and the waist is much more flattering but comfortable. I quite like the slight dip hem of this dress as well, I certainly won't be only wearing this for work.

My next purchase is a little more going out appropriate, along with workwear for Summer time. The Stripe Culotte Jumpsuit was £26 so the most expensive thing I bought. This is the sort of thing that looks good with a pair of heels if you're heading out for dinner and drinks, but I can also wear it in the classroom with a pair of flip flops and still look totally work appropriate.  

My last two purchases are tops which is a thing I don't think I've actually bought from Mela London before. I couldn't resist the Mustard Floral Print Bardot Top, even though it was  £25, so is obviously new in. Mustard yellow is still one of my favourite colours in clothing and a Bardot top makes for the perfect jeans and nice top top. I'm loving the flute sleeves, the fact that it's lined so you don't have to worry about your bra being on show and the elastic that actually holds the top in place. 

My last purchase is actually the one I'm most disappointed with. The Black Flute Sleeve Top was only £10 so it was just an impulse sale purchase but I was drawn in by the flute sleeves (again) and I thought it would be a good option for work or with leather look jeans. I bought it in a size 8, like the rest of my order, but this one is far too short in the body, I just felt a little uncomfortable in it. Nevermind, it's not as though I don't already have a million similar style black tops.
