February's Lockdown Teen Style with Femme Luxe

{This is a paid collaboration with Femme Luxe}

Lockdown - Home School Style

It's been the strangest of years and now we're heading towards the end of (what we hope is) the final lockdown and the girls and I have been reflecting on how being home has been a blessing in so many ways. They've loved being able to dress in comfy and casual clothes for months and I think it will be a big shock to have to get back into tights, ties and blazers for school.

Let me share with you some of the great lounge suits, tracksuits, call them what you will, that they've been wearing this February. They have been gifted to us from Femme Luxe and the girls are really pleased with them.

Above Miss M is wearing Lizzie joggers in hot pink and these retail for £11.99 currently, although as is very often the case with Femme Luxe, you can use their current discount code for 25% off, making them £8.99. So always check on the price or google for discount codes as I've always found one each time I've ordered so far.  Other colours differ in price and are £12.99, £13.99 and £14.99.

These joggers are available in sizes 6 - 16 and I'd say they come up generous in size. They are also a really good length, both of my girls are 5ft 7/8" and they are long enough for them, which is unusual and really pleased them both. 

They have a hidden drawstring inside, cuffed bottoms and really generous pockets, which is always a plus. They feel nice and fleecy on the inside and are a mix of polyester/ cotton. I've found them to wash up well, but you can't tumble dry them, which is a bit of a shame. 

Below is Miss E in her light blue Lizzie joggers, which are the same. One thing to note is that they say they are light blue but actually we thought they were more of a mint green colour. 

Above, Miss M is wearing the sweatshirt top from the Averi oversized crew neck sweatshirt with cuffed joggers loungewear set. Below she is wearing it as the two-piece set. This is another set that feels nice and fleecy and comes up generous in size. It is available in sizes 6 - 14 and retails for £25.99, although again there is a 25% discount available right now, making it £19.49. Also, as you can see, the length of the joggers is good for a taller woman.

Getting ready for Going Out Style

As the girls get ready to go back to school, they have also been getting excited to think that parties, discos and other reasons for getting glammed up. They'll all be back on the cards soon, so Miss E has chosen some items for going out in style.

Below, she is wearing the Suzi jade green cropped ribbed 2 piece co-ordinate set. It is a very lightweight fabric and clings to the skin. We think this one comes up true to size and is available in sizes 6-14.

The current cost is £19.99 or £16.99 with a 15% off code that is available currently. 

Next up is my favourite item that the girls received. I adore this Kourt black cropped ribbed top. It is a really nice thick material and looks very classy. It is available in sizes 6 - 16 and retails for £11.99, which I think is a bargain. Miss E tells me it comes up a little small for size, so it might be worth sizing up.

The Kourt top is available in a wide variety of colours and Miss E is already choosing what she might like next. 

Every woman needs a little black dress and I really liked this one from Femme Luxe. At first Miss E told me it was far too long and too old for her, but when she tried it on, she realised mum is right! 

This is the Taylor black ruched bodycon midi dress, which is just £14.99 and I think that is a great price as it is a heavy feeling fabric and will wear well, I am sure. I sized up and it still looks good on Miss E but just a little bit more demure, which I think is more appropriate for a teen girl. It's available in sizes 6 - 14.

Then the last item that Miss E ordered is the Dash black tie-front organza mesh crop top. I had worried that this might be too revealing but actually, although it plunges in the middle, it has coverage over the breast area and as such I think is fine for Miss E to wear in the warmer weather. 

This top is available in black and white and is available in sizes 6 - 14, retailing at £16.99. We also tried it over the bodycon dress and it actually works quite well as sleeves over a slinky dress, to make it look posher and more formal.

Thanks, Femme Luxe, the girls are really happy with their clothes. It has been such a nice boost for them to have some nice new clothes during lockdown. 

As with my other experiences of Femme Luxe, the delivery has been excellent, super quick and all items there as described. I also had to send some items back this time and they sent me a link to make my returns label with Royal Mail and you can drop your parcel or arrange for collection. It was very slick and easy to use.

Why not take a look on Femme Luxe if you like the latest fashions for good prices? They have such a massive variety of items to choose from - clothes, shoes and accessories.
