A while back I found an online store called Not For Ponies, and I thought it was super duper cute! It mixes basic pieces with cute twists in really good quality fabrics. Beckie at Not For Ponies was kind enough to send me 2 of the Pug Tops which are my favourite from the shop! They’re so basic yet so cute and versatile, plus there is a French Pug one!
What I Wore:French Pug T-Shirt £20.00* (Not For Ponies), Floral Hareem Trousers €3.00 (Jumble Sale), Pink Belt (Oxfam), Mint Green Trainers £7.99 (H&M), Bracelet (Primark), DIY Sunglasses £2.03 (DIY Coming Very Soon!)
Girl’s Pink Pug T-Shirt £10.00* (Not For Ponies) – This was made bigger for me.
The grey one is my favourite top of the two. I really like the grey colour as it is sort of marbley. I also LOVE the french pug! It’s not just printed on, it is sewn on so it looks a lot better and feels much better quality, and is obviously going to stay put! There was one thing I did find with the French Pug T-Shirt, is that around the edges of the pug was a sort of brown-ish orange colour, which I thought perhaps was to do with ironing, but I really don’t think it matters too much. The fabric is very soft, and feels very strong and durable, yet nice and light, and I would say it is like Topshop quality, so pretty darn good! I like how it doesn’t fit perfectly, so it feels more comfy and it also looks great tucked into baggy trousers like these ones. Mixing it with the trainers makes it feel casual and preppy, and I really like the feel of that style. It will be perfect for summer where I live, as it will be light and comfy rather than something that sticks to my body and makes me feel gross! I also love the rolled up sleeve detail, because it makes it feel a bit more ‘styled’ and edgy. Pretty much, I LOVE THEM! I would also style the Pink Pug T-Shirt with a midi skirt and a the same shoes, for a more girly look, which I am sure you will see on this blog one day soon!
