I’d been dying for the weather to brighten up a bit so I could finally get my new Missguided playsuit out of the wardrobe, and low and behold the sun finally made an appearance this weekend!
I love the layered effect – you don’t know initially whether it’s a playsuit or co-ordinates! The pretty flowered edges add the perfect touch to an otherwise simple style, and the biggest bonus is that it’s not at all see-through, which is something I’ve found with other white playsuits before. It feels really well-made, and it sits perfectly on.
I decided to keep things simple and style it with white sandals, although I think it’d look really good with chunky platforms for a night out too. Although I haven’t got any holidays booked at the minute (boo), this little number will definitely be making the suitcase-cut when I finally get into gear and go somewhere! Bring on St Lucia*
*By St Lucia, I mean Cornwall.

I was in the changing rooms of a rather (very) expensive high street store when I saw an absolute style queen come out of the cubicle to show her friends what she was trying on. She looked amazing – wearing high wasted white jeans and a plaid cropped shirt. The green eyed monster appeared, and I frantically ran out to the denim section because I just had to have them (even though I had no idea when I’d wear them). When I finally found my size, I checked the tag and saw the price. I won’t say exactly how much they were, but put it this way, I couldn’t afford to show them off anywhere because the price would have crippled me into hibernation for a month or so.
So, I ran across the street to Primark, and picked a pair up for £8. You can’t argue with that. I decided to wear them to a bar in Manchester that’s too fancy for leggings but not fancy enough for bare legs and a playsuit (you know the type), and style them with a bright Miss Selfridge blazer (it’s so bright, it’s not for the faint-hearted!), Topshop shoes, socks and cami top.
