• {Fashion Monday} British Summers and Playsuits

    Summer holidays are well and truly underway, the kids have started their six weeks of holidays. Sorry to the parents who have to now think of things to do to entertain, y’all rock and good luck with that. Whilst the British summer is not like everywhere else there are times we are blessed with the sun. But even when we are not we are an optimistic bunch who also love to complain about the sh*tty weather.

    British Summers and Playsuits

    Recently I was in Somerset with family and friends for a mini beach getaway. This mini getaway was a little questionable as the weather never improved to show us summer. But what is one to do when you relying on the sun and only have playsuits to work with?

    Well what I did was continued as planned wearing my playsuit for a beach walk and just added a cardigan. It’s not something you want to do during summer but this is England we do it all the time. What I love about playsuits is how cute they look and how easy they are to wear. But I also have a hate relationship with them, you have to be butt make during the toilet run. No matter how cute you look in a playsuit, during that toilet visit you will be stack naked in public.

    Playsuits are easiest outfits that you can transition from day to-night with little to no effort. They are great pieces to beat the summer heat with, well when we do actually get the sun. Plus they are also the easier pieces to put together. I always say find one that suits your body type and frame and work with that.

    Because British summer is questionable 90% of the time, I chose to carry a cardigan to cover up. At the beach on a cool day the breeze is not really your friend and it was drizzling a little. I was still able to appreciate what summer and the little village of Porlock had to offer on such a dreary day.

      I love wearing playsuits in summer! I think they look so much more elegant than shorts and a top 🙂

      Love that outfit so much! I always end up carrying a cardigan to cover up because sometimes inside theaters and such it is so chilly!

    12. July 25, 2017 / 8:07 pm

      I find playsuits so easy to wear as it covers the top and bottom, so no fashion dilemmas when in a rush! Somerset looks lovely by the way x

      I love playsuits but I hate having to get practically naked to go to the bathroom! x

    21. July 25, 2017 / 10:35 am

      I like playsuits but I don’t think they’re practical so they’re not for me x

      The playsuit looks good on you. I would love to wear one but I think I am a little bit too old for that. Anyway, I will let my daughter see this post. She may want to have one to wear for their weekly strolls in the mall with her hubby and son.

      I don’t like to wear playsuits.They just don’t look good on me, and yes, the toilet dilemma has something to say in this decision as well. But you do look good in one.

    25. July 25, 2017 / 9:13 am

      “Because British summer is questionable 90% of the time, I chose to carry a cardigan to cover up. ” OH MY GOD! HAHAHA .. I live in Southampton and yes girl, the weather is pretty much questionable. Your whole post had me laughing, especially the part about being naked during toilet breaks when you wear a playsuit.

      I love the playsuit look, but I just don’t think they are very flattering on me.

      That pink outfit is really cute on you! I agree. Adding a light cardigan would make this look very easy to switch from a day to night look. It’s perfect for summer.

    32. July 25, 2017 / 1:58 am

      I agree playsuits are so easy to dress for day and night and you look so pretty in yours. I love your hair like that by the way xx

      I agree cardigan is a must. Our summer can be so up and down it’s a nightmare. Love the playsuits I have noticed they are getting far more popular and there are some great designs.

      I’ve never worn a playsuit before. You look fantastic in yours.

      A beach getaway sounds amazing.

    43. July 24, 2017 / 8:08 pm

      Playsuits are so much fun and I love how they look on you. It is such an easy outfit idea for the summer!

      I really need to visit the U.K during the summer. I’ve been there twice and during winter. BTW, I love your look.

    45. July 24, 2017 / 7:01 pm

      I just got back from a beach vacation. It didn’t rain there but today is 60 degrees and rainy! So strange in July. I love the playsuit. Like someone else said, we call them rompers. They are fun!

    46. July 24, 2017 / 6:57 pm

      Playsuits are so in at the moment. I have a few and I am loving it. But I do agree with the cons. Cute outfits!

      July 24, 2017 / 6:51 pm

      Cute outfits, they really fit you well. I have never heard it called a playsuit, Over here I think they are called rompers but all serve the same purpose no matter the name! I am still looking for some that are just the right fit for me

    48. July 24, 2017 / 6:31 pm

      I do love a playsuit but completely agree with you about the cons of wearing one.
      You styled yours perfectly for a British summer day!

      Lovely playsuits. I would’ve suggested you take picture with flowers as background to really convey that summery feel on your photos.

      I love the playsuit on you! It looks great with the cardigan too. I have never been to England in the summer.

    51. July 24, 2017 / 3:40 pm

      I have to admit, I do love wearing a playsuit in the summer, just need the sunshine to make an appearance! x

      July 24, 2017 / 2:32 pm

      I have never been to England but I have heard that it rained quite a bit. It looks like you were prepared for it. Have a great fashion sense and I love what you’re wearing.

    53. July 24, 2017 / 2:07 pm

      Ah British Summers, they are never really that sunny are they haha! I love your playsuit though, hopefully the sun will come out and your be able to enjoy it to the max!

      I love that playsuits can be accessorized for any occasion! They look like the perfect summer outfit, and it looks great on you!

    55. July 24, 2017 / 1:58 pm

      I think these are called rompers in the US. They are very cute, but I can’t find any to fit because I am tall.

    56. July 24, 2017 / 1:02 pm

      My Daughter loves playsuits, they really are idea for summer, just need the weather to get a bit warmer again now x

    57. July 24, 2017 / 11:23 am

      Playsuits are great for summer, you can easily move to feeling more dressy by just whacking on a pair of wedged sandals or heels if out and about to move from day to night.

      The cut looks good on you and it accentuates your curves. Where did you get it? What’s the best thing to do in Somerset?

      I always used to wear playsuits on nights out when I was younger, they’re perfect for dressing up or down aren’t they? I love the soft pink colour of your cardigan.
