Maria's party essentials: the playsuit...


Around this time of year everyone ends up with more social events to attend than the rest of the year added together [well I do at least!] and it can be difficult to find enough outfits to wear without going out and spending a fortune. Hopefully this mini-series of posts will give you some inspiration on how to revamp your wardrobe for that festive feel!

I first wore this playsuit to the Tabio blogger event and it is one of the easiest items to style up for an evening party. Just add some snazzy tights and a spot of blingy jewellery and you have an outfit that manages to be sexy without flashing too much flesh, always a win in my book! 

Playsuit: My Yard, hold-ups: c/o MyTights, shoes: New Look
 Luckily, the fact that this is a block colour allows for a lot of freedom with the accessories and I think this would look great with some leopard print or sequins too...


I think patterned hold-ups are even better than patterned tights! I think these would add an edge to an outfit without taking away from the gorgeous draped shape. My Yard have a gorgeous burgundy playsuit in at the moment which I think would look absolutely gorgeous layered up with chunky gold jewellery and a sheer black shirt.  


A close up of the gorgeous patterned lace ( I love these Jonathon Aston hold ups for a similar look) I always associate lace with Christmas and party occasions but I am looking to the gorgeous Reena for some lace tights inspiration for everyday wear.


One of my favourite photos of me and Danni, just before we finished uni ♥ It just goes to prove how versatile the playsuit can be... Another party, the same playsuit! ;)


What are your party essentials? Do you own a playsuit?

I really wish I could wear a playsuit, I'm far too long in the body, plus I sort of get put off by the gathering around the gussett... not terribly attractive :(

I'm not usually a big fan of playsuits but this one is really pretty :) I love the colour and how you've shown how versatile it is! x

love the pattern on those hold-ups. Hold-ups aren't for me but if they did them in a tight version i'd be right there! Often find it so hard to figure out if how it looks in the packet will be ok once i've stretched it over my legs (did that make any sense?!) Have a fab weekend!xx
