[HOW I WEAR] Reformation Katrina Two Piece Review


Awww...look at that. Baby's first two-piece review. 

Normally I don't wear co-ords, let alone cropped ones. I rarely bare my midriff for a few (valid) reasons - pasty skin, layers of flab and a very unflattering permanent "crease" about 3 inches south of my bra line. 

But this Katrina Two-Piece from Reformation solves all of the above. 


Skin? What's shown can be kept to a minimum. Hike that midi skirt up however much you damn well please. My marsupial-like stomach pouch? Decently covered by said midi skirt bottom. And the awkward crease? Also covered, thanks to the cropped tank that ends at just the right part of my midriff. 


The navy fabric is also incredibly comfy and hugs the right places while hiding the rest. Although I have to say if you're interested in camouflaging a rounder stomach, you probably want to steer clear of the ribbed tencel/spandex. If my stomach was any bigger I don't think I'd feel as comfortable. But where it scores major points is the bra-friendly top. Even the thickest of straps will be camouflaged nicely.

At $118 I'd say its average for a co-ord piece. Since it's Reformation you'll be paying a pretty mark-up for the cool factor. But it is on the less-expensive side of their offerings, mainly due to the fabric. I'm happy to pay the price since both of these pieces will play nicely with other things in my closet - I have big plans for the midi with a striped poplin button down.


The details! The bag is my favorite canvas Mansur Gavriel crossbody (similar color here). As much as I adore this bag, I have wicked blue denim transfer on the back and it's in desperate need of a good cleaning. But the color and size are perfect and it fits a surprising amount of essentials - keys, cardholder, iPhone 6, gum, my powder compact and a lipstick with room to spare. 

The shoes are a purchase from the last Net-a-Porter sale. I've been eyeing a pair of Castaner espadrilles ever since I read Leandra recommending them to Amelia on Man Repeller. They are total classics and manage to be wedge-esque without being wedge-y (no pun intended). I love the laces and the red goes with most of my summer wardrobe. Also insanely comfortable. Like walk-for-hours-in-with-zero-problems comfortable. 


The makeup was relatively boring. I've been just as feverish about golds and corals this summer as I have every other summer. The eyes were some combination of the Urban Decay Naked Palette (Half-Baked forever) and the lips were YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in #14, Coral in Touch. The prettiest, most juicy looking coral ever. So there's that. 

I of course added an HRH Choker (this one is the Mod Choker and one I wear constantly) and a pair of Quay sunnies (Gemini Rose). Then I dragged the BF out to take these photos, like an good blogger does.
