Versatile Clothing - Adrift Toya Top

Like the majority of you I wear many different hats - both literally and figuratively speaking!

I'm a mum, I'm a wife, I'm an employee, I'm a beauty and fashion blogger, and sometimes I'm just me!

Having completely separate wardrobes for each different part of my life isn't practicable however.

As a result versatility in my clothing is really important to me.

I need multi-tasking clothes that can adapt to the different aspects of my life.

One top that meets my versatility requirements is the Adrift Toya Top in Black

Adrift Toya Top in Black

The Adrift Toya top is a relaxed fit blouse.

It looks great dressed casually with a pair of cotton pants for walks along the beach.

I couldn't believe how windy it was when I was taking these outfit photos at the beach.

I'm surprised my hat didn't fly off into the surf it was that windy! 

I had to hang onto it the majority of the time and my hair was flying everywhere despite the hat but at least the photo below shows you the gorgeous sleeves on this top with their pleating and beading, as I hung onto my hat!

The Adrift Toya Top has such beautiful subtle beading detail along the hemline, neckline and sleeves.

When the weather becomes a bit warmer the Adrift Toya top will be perfect teamed with shorts whilst still offering some sun protection for my shoulders and upper arms.

The Adrift Toya top has a flattering design with a pleated bodice and lovely soft draping which skims over and hides any lumps and bumps, has a slimming deep v neck and three quarter length sleeves.

This top looks good not only on regular sized ladies but also on curvier ladies like myself.

Like the majority of Adrift clothing this Toya top comes in both regular sizes and plus sizes, ranging from XS to 4XL. 

If you prefer wearing lighter colours in Spring and Summer this top also comes in a crisp white or pretty pink tile fabric.

I've previously published a post about the Adrift Mantra Dress in Pink Tile fabric HERE.

It is the beautiful beading detail that enables this top to so easily be elevated from casual wear to also wearing it to beauty and fashion events and out in the evening. 

Last week I wore my Adrift Toya Top to the Frankie4 Footwear event where the always gorgeous Nikki Parkinson from Styling You was sharing her styling tips.



I also wore my Adrift Toya Top together with my leopard print skirt to the theatre last week.

I love the lovely flowing movement both this skirt and top provided as I walked. 

Who doesn't love a bit of swish!

And can I just say again how much I adore the sleeves of the Adrift Toya Top!

Note: If you are interested in purchasing any of the Adrift Toya top varieties I suggest you run and don't walk as I noticed on the Adrift website that some sizes are already sold out!

    1. Thanks Nicole! For curvier ladies like myself the 'roominess' is a god send. Adrift clothing always seems to flatter!

  6. I need that top! I'm always on the look out for nice black tops that are comfortable and roomy but aren't super casual for when I'm shooting and this looks like the perfect shirt to add to my shooting wardrobe!

  7. That's a beautiful top! I like pieces that are comfortable and practical but have a little extra detail like this does with the beading, so that it feels a little more special :)

    Hope you are having a wonderful week so far :)

  9. I adore that top. Adrift is such a great brand. The most versatile thing I own? A Boom Shankar maxi skirt that o just live in!

  10. I love it. I have a few Adrift things. Some I inherited from a friend and I've bought some more recently. The only thing I struggle with is that things go on sale just after you buy them. (My $150 dress is on sale for $90 ONE WEEK after I got mine! Grrrrrr....)

    I love the fact they have plus size stuff though - and that they don't differentiate it from the non-plus size stuff. (And use plus size models!)

  12. Very nice. This would be a very versatile top that could be worn with a number of bottoms. I like wearing blouses instead of t shirts. #TeamLovinLife
