Berry nice!

Don't you just love it when you can come up with such a pathetic witty pun?! I really love the print of this playsuit but the top half is very strappy and far too skimpy unless it's 25° C outside.  [Can you tell that I am really looking forward to Spring?!] When it's layered up though, it's a completely different story! 
Playsuit: Oasis, tights: John Lewis, sheer shirt: Miss Selfridge via charity shop, belt: Primark, ancient cardigan: Dorothy Perkins, shoes: Marks & Spencer via charity shop
I'm not sure what's happening with my face here! :P 
I added my black sheer shirt, some very warm tights, and my beloved cardigan. I loved how the rich colour of the tights made it instantly more wintry but made the print on the playsuit pop a little too :) Before this last winter, I have never really seen the point of layers as I am always warm, but recently I have loved adding a couple of textures to an outfit. Plus it means that I can wear my favourite pieces all year round :) 




These shoes have proven indispensable already in my wardrobe, giving me a little bit of height (I think my legs look long here!) but without hurting my feet or being completely impractical...plus I like the patent finish to them! :) 


When I was looking through these photos, I realised that the bow in my hair looks like I am wearing cat ears, how very Olsen of me! I have got the blogger clichés down in this post; slightly pigeon toed stance, animal inspired outfits, sheer shirt.... 


Is it a squirrel or a dinosaur? 
Yes, I am wearing my grey nail varnish! I bought this the first year I went to the Clothes Show and have never worn it. I prefer brighter colours but it seemed to be the perfect match for this outfit, I guess even now I manage to surprise myself sometimes :) 



I will leave you with my (rather attractive) dancing face! I think every blogger has a few outtakes from an outfit post and this was too ridiculous not to share! ;) 

Are you a fan of layering? Have you surprised yourself with your outfit choices recently?

also a fan of your layering, I am pants at it and always end up unable to move my limbs.

Cute playsuit, I love the idea of putting a sheer blouse over the top. It's covering up without covering up!

Maria said...

Leia- Thank you love :)

Laura- I thought you would like them, I always think of them as my Laura tights :D

Harriet- It just means there's an extra layer of clothes between me and the outside! :P
