Oroblu Chic Up 15 Hold Ups

Summer feels for sure, as the weather has been beautiful this week but taking a turn soon! I had to dress up a little before it does, so I created this cute summer outfit and pulled out a pair of heels I haven’t worn in a while too!

I kept it simple with a polka dot dress, and added pom pom sandals to finish the look. I would have stuck with polka dots, but I fancied switching it up a little.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: handling these with ease. I left my gloves upstairs and was in a slight rush this morning to get them on and go. I took my time to roll them up the feet and ankles, before I slowly shimmied them up the legs and sat them in place.

These were really nice to slip into, and I didn’t have to tug them up at all.

On The Legs: one thing I like about this colour is that it adds such a lovely tan shade to the legs. It still looks totally natural, which I really like. I did find in the sunshine it did shimmer and really glow, and in slightly duller light it looked like I wasn’t wearing a pair.

The quality is always amazing. This brand never lets me down, and it always has me going back for more. I didn’t damage these in any way, even though I was half expecting to as I was rushing around for the most part. Even if I did, from past experience it doesn’t really show when you snag as it blends into the skin tone so well.

The fit of these were spot on for me. I had enough stretch for it to sit higher up my thighs, and there was no gapping from doing that either which is a bonus. I really liked them. I would advise going a size up if you’re unsure or if you’re in-between sizes.

The feel of them are so soft, and so silky smooth you can’t tell they’re on the legs. I felt so comfortable in them during the day, even in this lovely heat. These also don’t irritate the skin!

The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes, which blend in so well. At first I had to check if they did have them, and I saw a faint line going across the toes. I like that it blends well, which meant I can wear any footwear I like without having to worry about a shade difference.

I had plenty of wiggle room around my toes, and there was no pressure added either during my wear.

Around the feet and ankles, these have a super smooth finish with no wrinkling to be seen.

The Bands: as much as I love deep welts, I actually don’t mind smaller ones because they look so chic. These are great if you want something more subtle and practical for work. These come with double silicone ad hold up really well during the day – even if your legs are perspiring with the heat!

My Thoughts?

I really love this pair, and I love the colour too! They are a gorgeous pair to wear, and the quality is amazeballs. I would happily recommend these for sure!
