If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know I was lucky enough to get the chance to attend the preview of the launch of Ivy Park at Topshop Oxford Circus last night. As the event got closer and closer, I got more excited! I went from 0 to 100 in about 5 minutes of entering the building!
It's currently coming up to midnight before the launch so I thought I would share my immediate thoughts with you before you shop and share a little about the pieces I picked out for myself.
Number 1 || Firstly, lemme tell you that there is a Season 2. So have no fear, there will be more!
...But this season is mainly monochrome with pops of my favourite electric blue and a blush pink. There are a lot of pieces in the range but this means there is basically something for everyone. Everyone.

Here are the pieces I chose for myself:
Deep Armhole Tank (white), £15
Logo Crew Neck Sweatshirt, £28
Colour Block Ankle Legging, £48
Hexagon Mesh Bomber (Black), £50
Logo Sliders, £20
Number 2 || as you can see, everything is pretty reasonably priced, or dare I say, affordable! The most expensive pieces are in the reflective range. I didn't get a chance to look at them properly on the night but if you're used to shopping in lululemon or Sweaty Betty the prices won't put you off!
Number 3 || the sizing is pretty true to size. I purchased a small in everything except the deep armhole tank which I got in an XS. So I'd say a small would fit a UK 10 perfectly. The tank was super roomy and I preferred the way it looked when I sized down as I plan to actually work out in it!

Number 4 || another need to know is that the line is not all functional. It is also a fashion line. As I basically live in "athleisure", that really doesn't bother me. It's nice to separate my sports wardrobe into "stuff I exercise in" and "stuff I don't exercise in" even if at the end of the day it's all sports wear ;)
Number 5 || and as if the prices aren't reasonable enough already, you can shop with your regular discount in Topshop i.e student discount for an extra 10% off your bill! Yup!!
If you do purchase any pieces from the range tag me on Instagram (@ellelinton) so I can see what you chose and how you rock it!
What do you think of the Ivy Park range so far?!
