A couple of weeks ago I was approached by the clothing brand Protest (a link to their website here) who asked if I would be interested in seeing their latest collection. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and they sent me over their online catalogue. They have a suffer/beach wear style to their products with lots of shorts, vests, bikinis and sandals as well as sarongs and dresses. It is all very boho yet colourful. Think The White Stuff meets Animal.
I was so excited to then be told that they would send me over some samples to have a look at and I was so lucky to receive a gorgeous pair of green beach shorts and a funky vest top which will be perfect for me to take away on holiday at the beginning of September. The clothes are really well made and the sizing is spot on. The shorts fit really nicely and are made with 100% polyester so will be really lovely to wear by the pool or at the beach because they will dry really quickly in the sunshine. They are the colour 'Rainforest' which is a very bright green but because of its dull, matt-type finish it is not too over powering and is just a really nice summer shade. They are extremely light-weight and have a small pocket on the right hand side. They also have  lovely appliqued swirly pattern on the left hand side, just at the top of the thigh which has been made using thread that is the same shade as the shorts, which adds a subtle but cute detail.
The vest is again, a really nice addition to my summer wardrobe. It is from their basic range and is 100% cotton. This again will be really light-weight to wear whilst away on holiday and because it is white, will go with most of my summer holiday collection. I love the fact that it is a vest but that the straps are still thin. Sometimes, I find, that the straps on vests can be too thick and don't really suit my frame and end up making me look too boxy. This vest top however is very flattering. There is a quirky, pop art-like image on the front of the vest. Usually I don't tend to go for clothing with pictures or images on them, mainly because it becomes distorted due to my bust, but because the image on this vest is more like a panel down the centre it is much more flattering than other items I have worn.
Over all, I can't thank Protest enough for opening my eyes to a new brand, which I absolutely love, and for giving me the opportunity to try some of the clothes for myself and to let my lovely readers have a nosey too!
Have you bought any thing from Protest before? What do you think of my new shorts and vest?
