It’s hot and sunny here, and Spring Break next week, so my thoughts have turned to all things short. Quite literally. I have been obsessing over playsuits. Yes the name conjures all sorts of images from babies in onesies to some very questionable attire indeed. I, as you know, rightly or wrongly, tend not to follow any fashion code or rules based on age (as an aside Frank Skinner blew my mind yesterday on BBC Radio 2 saying ‘denim should only be seen next to young skin’). I wear what I feel comfortable, confident or even sexy in…and I will continue to do so till my time is up. As I love my legs (yes go on you can be proud of your body instead of criticizing it all the time!) I love to wear shorts. Combine my love of shorts with my love of jumpsuits and hey presto – the playsuit!
Marks and Spencer are just rocking my world right now. I have ordered the white draped playsuit seen on Rita Ora here. It’ll will look fabulous with my canvas Newburys or Ancient Greek Sandals.
These other playsuits from M&S are perfect beach attire for vacation. This tribal print is my favorite.
These simple playsuits are great for beach to bar and are great prices – the black at £22.50 and the floral at £25.
For something a little dressier this Lavish Alice playsuit is stunning.
So my only caveat is make sure a playsuit fits properly – it can’t be too tight or too short – and I prefer not to wear them with court shoes – I do think a flat or a boot balances out the flesh on show.
As for my outfits recently here’s one from last week pre-haircut and pre-soaring temperatures.
Poncho – Oak // Long sleeved tee – AllSaints (old) // Jeans – Boden // Boots – Black leather Rag & Bone Newbury boots
I love this OAK poncho – especially as I can wear it for Jedi training…
Then for this week as the sun has made an appearance so have some sandals along with my legs…
Jeans – Zara TRF // Sandals – Pons Avarcas in Berry // T-Shirt – J. Crew (25% off with SHOPNOW) // Jacket – Gap (old)
Boots – Rag & Bone Newbury (old – bought off TheOutnet.com last year) // Dress – Pia dress AllSaints
My Husband says my smile is broader and happier with my new hair:)
