Pining Over Playsuits.

Now the weather is getting a little better here in the UK I thought I'd start looking for some playsuits for the summer again. As I'm a great lover of the playsuit or romper (though I'm not a massive fan of that word) it's something that until less than a year ago I always wore with a pair of tights under as I was worried about my stumpy legs and chunky thighs. However as I'm now way more comfortable with my body than I once was I can't wait to get my legs out, so lets bring on the sunshine!

All three of these playsuits are from Yours Clothing as I've seen the blue acid wash and tropical floral ones in the flesh I know how fab they are! My favourite is definitely the floral number at the top which was modelled by the utter babe that is Tess Holliday. I was actually luckily to meet the lovely lady and all the yours team along with some blogger ladies at a dinner in April, which I will eventually blog about but unfortunately haven't yet been able to sit down and write up properly with all the deadlines I have at the moment! I find the black playsuit with the daisy neckline would be something I could wear when I wish to be a little more dressy in the summer without the discomfort! And the primary reason why I love playsuits is usually I don't get chub rub when I wear them!

Hopefully these pieces will be in store soon as I'd love to go and try them on next time I'm near a Yours! P.S have you notice that Yours Clothing have had a little make over on the site and it is now a complete dream to shop on?

Rule This.

Top: c/o George at Asda. Skirt: Silly Old Seadog. Necklace: Blackheart Creatives. Clutch: New Look.

It's been 2 weeks roughly since I last got chance to blog and unfortunately I may be pretty sporadic until June as I'm very much so in the run up to my graduate collection and that shit needs to be done on top of all the write ups and shoot for it! Anyway on to the lovely outfit post the babes at George also popped a few surprise bits and pieces in my parcel from the items I've already shown you, including this fab yellow top. Unfortunately I can't find this exact one on the site but this cute tee would work equally as well and give the same look!

Now this is a colour that I'd normally run a mile from but I've decided to welcome it with open arms and pair it with an equally as bright skirt!Which I got last summer for an event I was doing with work but unfortunately the weather was so miserable it never got it's deserved outing. I'm wearing the top in a UK22 but it's actually rather too big so I I'd definitely say there isn't a need to size up. I find with the majority of the George range there sizing is pretty good in basically everything I have from them I wear a UK20 but in some tops I do like to size up to make them longer so I can wear them with leggings! I finished the look with some of my favourite accessories and the fabulous hair and make up was from a photoshoot I did at HMS Vintage that afternoon! (I'll be posting the shots from then later on this month!)

When I dance alone, I know I'll go Blame it on me.

Dress: c/o Scarlett and Jo. (P)leather jacket: Dorothy Perkins. Shoes: New Look. Heart necklace: Me and Zena.

I feel like it's been awhile since I used song lyrics for a blog title so I just couldn't resist using George Ezra's for the post as it's an album I've been listening to a fair bit lately. Scarlett and Jo were nice enough to pop this cute navy dress across to me a week or so ago but my easter has been a little crazy so I've unfortunately only just managed to get the photos up! 

I decided to try and go a little rockier with this look as so often now I automatically style looks with a  vintage twist. Which of course I do love but it's nice to shake things up every now and then even if it's only a tiny bit! I sized up in this dress but there wasn't any need to as always with Scarlett and Jo it is true to size, this is something I do love about them I nearly always know that a size 20 is a perfect fit for me whereas with other companies I often jump up and down their size charts. The dress is a little long for me but being only 5'2 this is something I'm used to and can either alter myself if I really want to but with this I quite like the longer length. I paired this with my very old leather jacket and a pair of shoe boots I bought in the sale a new look over a year ago but very rarely wear. My heart necklace may be a nightmare to try and photograph but I just love it so much I couldn't resist wearing it with this dress. I've been a huge fan of Me and Zena since I saw them in a Sugar Magazine when I was a teenager and last year when I was at the clothes show I fell upon their stand with some fab reductions and couldn't resist making a cheeky purchase or two! (still wishing I'd bought more though!)
