Stripes and a scalloped playsuit...

It's been a while since I have worn a playsuit on the blog, I used to love them when I was at uni but the ones that I saw in the shops were so short that they were obscene. Luckily though M&S came to my rescue with this gorgeous scalloped playsuit that I picked up in their sale a few months ago. I felt very French in these pictures, (I blame the stripes and red lipstick) but also slightly like an oversized five year old. I guess if an outfit can feel fun AND sophisticated, it is doing pretty well, amirite?! We also tried a new location for these pictures too, what do you think? I met up with the lovely Hattie a few weekends ago for lots of food and a long-overdue catch up and it just reminded me how awesome blogging can be. I first met her at the Birmingham blogger meet a few years ago and now I would count her as a close friend - it just goes to show that the internet ain't all bad!

Playsuit: Marks & Spencer, top: H&M, satchel: Brit Stitch, shoes: Clarks

I was initially a bit worried about the tabard-like front but actually the fit makes it pretty flattering as it makes your waist look much slimmer; never a bad thing in my opinion... This nail varnish is so nice too. It seems a little bit early to switch to dark nail colours but they just look so much more sophisticated than my cheery brights, especially on my short nails!



Just how cute are those scalloped shorts?! If wearing a playsuit wasn't so darned inconvenient I would be layering all kinds of snazzy tops over it but I think a cosy jumper and some jazzy tights will have to suffice in the winter! My beloved Brit Stitch satchel is softening up nicely and the leather by the handles has started to get that slightly battered look too- lovely! 


Do you wear playsuits? Who are the best friends you've made through blogging?

M&S? Amazing! I'm absolutely loving scalloped edges at the moment so I definitely approve of a scalloped edge playsuit. I'd like to wear more playsuits (only own one) but generally find they're too short on the body for me. The woes of being slightly taller than average!

Oooh, you look so Parisian in this! I adore the scallop detailing and it looks so sweet with the bretton stripes. I've made lots of pals via blogging, I love meeting up with Steph of FAIIINT and Kylie of Memoir Mode. :)
