I bought this top as the colour is fab on me, (I am a hoc winter) however, the neckline is a bit high and the style a bit too boxy although I love the look of it on the,picture. I'm finding it really hard to get anything in this colour has anyone seen anything? I've,looked on kettlewell but I'm not keen,on their styles. Thanks x

Boden have a few things in what they're calling Cerulean which is similar.

Thanks tulip, these are a nice colour, but all the tops are a bit wintery for this time of year, which is surprising, I would have thought that the summer things would be coming in. I'll keep my eye on that site though. Thanks again, I wouldn't have thought of looking in Boden, have never bought from them.

That ASOS top is lovely (I wish they did it in some other colours like Navy, white or Pink).

What about this?

Or a vest?

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 19:13:35

Ooh, both really nice, and good prices, I might have to get both! Thanks.

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 19:14:14

I know sorrel, it really is nice, but the neckline when on is really high, it feels a little strange

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 19:16:09

Oh no, only size 10 left in the mango one!! Too small for me :-(

SorrelForbes Tue 01-Apr-14 20:01:12

I definitely can't do a high neck line so I think I'll have to pass sad.

I'm usually a 12 in tops but do have a Mango top (linked up thread) which is a S. I think some of their stuff comes up fairly big.

SorrelForbes Tue 01-Apr-14 20:01:35

Oops, sorry, the top I linked to was on the HoC Winter thread!

whereisshe Tue 01-Apr-14 20:28:43

More summery?

Haven't seen anything I'm afraid. Chinese/lagoon blue are some of my best colours and I just find them impossible to find.

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 20:33:50

Thanks where, that's pretty for summer, might look nice with dark ankle length jeans.
It does seem that way queen, very annoying. Now I know my best colours. I want to buy buy buy them!

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 20:34:38

Thanks sorrel, I'm more of a 14 though so I think even a large 10 might be pushing it sadly

whereisshe Tue 01-Apr-14 20:42:41

Or this?

Witchywitch Tue 01-Apr-14 20:53:58

Also nice where, but I think the first hm vest is the best colour, more of what HOC call Chinese blue I think. Thanks

In my ongoing quest to understand the difference between summer and winter blue (I'm looking for something similar to you OP, hence all the links) I think this may be the right blue?

Witchywitch Wed 02-Apr-14 14:07:28

That's lovely and yes I think that's a winter blue as it's bright and strong. I have several tops in that colour and I really love them. But I want some Chinese blue aka turquoise too, but they're really hard to find in styles that I like. I'm trying hard not to buy just for the colour, style has to be right too. If only kettlewell were a bit more fashionable!

whereisshe Wed 02-Apr-14 18:08:24

This is completely not what I usually wear but I really like it for some reason. Summery smile...

That's gorgeous, would look great over jeans and a white vest.
