Floral choker topPretty floral choker top

When I spotted this pretty floral choker top in Pull & Bear, I simply couldn’t resist it. The in-built choker means there is absolutely no need for a necklace. I’ve always loved chokers – I think it’s because they remind me of another era. Is it the Victorian times, perhaps?

I actually had a pretty bad couple of weeks, to be honest. It started off with me overdoing it on the computer (when I get excited about a new project, I go completely overboard and I’m on the computer, like ALL the time!) and my muscles pretty much seized up and I was in pain for a few days. I didn’t want to admit this because I teach yoga and I should know better but what better way do we learn from our mistakes, right? lol.

Restless Leg Syndrome?

Anyway, after I recovered from that, I got a tummy bug and was out of action for a few more days. And then… I have this problem that happens maybe three or four times a year. It’s the most hideous dull aching in my legs. And when I say hideous, I really mean, hideous. It’s incredibly painful and it stops me from sleeping – so for about five days, I had to keep getting up and exercising my legs to try and relieve the pain. Thankfully, the pain has now receded and I finally slept wonderfully last night. YAY! I think it might be RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), also known as Willis-Ekbom Disorder but I need to make an appointment with the GP to find out for sure.

Rich food

Last weekend, we decided to pop out to Lagos for a Chinese meal. As it was a little cooler, I figured my wide-legged jeans from Massimo Dutti would be the perfect thing to wear. I’m glad I did. When we left the restaurant, it was actually a little chilly! After the meal, I wished we hadn’t gone out though – it was still a little too soon to be eating such rich food. My tummy was complaining. But I was craving it lol.

My flat black leather sandals that I bought from Primark years ago (and are still going strong!) were the perfect shoes for the evening. I couldn’t be doing with heels that night. And my cute pale pink leather handbag (another gift from mother-in-law a long time ago) tied in nicely with the pale pink flowers on my new, favourite top.

The choker floral top is just one of many choker tops I’ve seen in shops lately and I do love them. What do you think? Are they your sort of thing? Do you think they’re flattering?

    You look FABULOUS and you make me want one of those choker tops! Such a fun, sweet and chic outfit! So incredibly sorry you have been feeling yucky these last couple weeks. I dealt with RLS during my teens and 20s and it is no joke. It occasionally flares up. I take a B complex vitamin which I’m told helps! Keeping you in my thoughts gorgeous friend and here is hoping this week ahead is much better!! Hugs!!

    • Thank you so much Andrea. I shall have to try the B complex vitamin!
      I’m feeling MUCH better now thanks. Back to normal, at last YAY!!

    Thanks for linking up to the Top of the World Style linkup party. You top has a very interesting cut. I’ve never seen s.th. like this top before.

  • I love the unusual detailing on the back of the top Suzy, and you wouldn’t know it’s attached from the front. I really like it. I hope you are on the mend? We are just getting over the Flu here! The OH was advised to go in hospital but relented. Worst cold ever! But I would prefer that over a tummy bug any day! I’m also guilty of spending way too much time on the PC sitting in the most awkward positions and then paying for it too! I wish you a much better week to come xx

    • Oh no, Laurie! There’s little worse than having the flu, especially in the summer. I hope he’s feeling better now. I hope you didn’t have it too? It’s just horrible!
      I’m feeling back to normal now thankfully.
      Thanks for stopping by, my love friend!

  • Suzy, this top is everything! I absolutely adore it and the way you have it styled. I am a big fan of chokers, too…they are reminiscent of a time gone by and so pretty and sexy, too. I am so sorry to hear of your bad weeks. I am just recovering from a severe case of strep throat myself which was just about the worst throat pain that I can remember in my entire life. Absolutely miserable. I also struggle with restless leg syndrome a few times a year. It is horrible. I have found an herbal over the counter remedy for it that works quite well. It is called Restful Legs. It usually takes away the jumpiness and aching within about 10 minutes of taking it. Thanks so much for linking up with me and I hope you are feeling back to yourself now!

    • Shelbee, I shall have to look out for it. It sounds like it’s a wonderful herbal drug lol! I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been suffering horribly too. Thankfully I’ve never had strep throat (touch wood).
      I hope you’re better now though.
      Big hugs

  • Oh gosh Suzy, I totally relate as I had the norovirus last week as did most of us and I still don’t feel 100%! Love your outfit and choker x

    • Thanks Vicki! Oh no… you poor thing. I hope you’ll feel better soon. It stinks being ill – especially in the summer!
