HOW TO TONE DOWN A PLAYSUIT


This last week has been rather slow for me in general as I have managed to catch a horrible cold in the middle of this heatwave. Therefore I'm spending most of my time in bed trying to get better while simultaneously trying not to get more ill from the incredibly necessary fan that is in my room. I have, however, tried to get a tan by falling asleep in the garden, which seems to be the only way I can somewhat tolerate the heat, haha.

I've had this Missguided playsuit for a while now and have only ever managed to wear it on nights out with high heels and a clutch bag. Since it is quite out there, with it's thin straps and revealing back, I decided that it needs some toning down to make for a good daytime look. I ended up pairing it with my new Quiz Clothing chiffon kimono which is slightly longer than the playsuit, which is exactly what I wanted.

As I mentioned before, I very much rather prefer wearing ankle boots in the summer rather than open shoes (unless they are heels, usually), so these Clarks suede booties will definitely become my go-to boot this summer! I got them off Cloggs.co.uk, which is an online retailer that I have worked with before, and I would highly recommend it to anyone, as they only sell quality items and offer all the best shoe brands such as Converse, Flossy, Ted Baker and more. I also got a massive crush on these Barbour wellies, which I may add to my birthday wishlist :-) Upon opening my shoe box I could immediately see the great quality of the boots - they are made of suede leather and are very sturdy. The zipper part closes very well too (is it just me who values this in shoes?). I think these boots add an edge to the outfit and definitely make it more of a daytime look.

I better get packing as me and Kate are going for an express trip to the UK tomorrow. Til later!
