...British Mermaid's back, tell a friend. Yes I've finally got back to writing this here blog and I've missed it so much. If you follow me on social media you'll know that I've had a fairly busy couple of months involving schoolwork, exam practices and a lot of changes (for the better!) in my personal life. All of this has meant that I have not been motivated enough to shoot outfit pictures but as my exams are almost over, I have decided to get my act together and start blogging again! So here I am, ready to once again share my outfits and awkward life experiences with you. Be prepared.
So to get back into the swing of things, I thought I'd share one of my favourite pieces of clothing to fall (*cough* be lusted after and triumphantly bought due to lack of self control) into my wardrobe this season. A few summers ago I fell in love with the patterned playsuit and upon seeing this beauty on Motel, I was smitten once again. When I'm not dressing like a wannabe Disney princess in glitter and pastels, I tend to sway towards a darker yet still feminine look with my outfits and a particular inspiration as of late has been Courtney Love. Known for her love of slightly prissy yet slightly provocative lace and chunky footwear, 90s Courtney knew how to balance grunge and girly and her strappy dresses was a sign of this for sure. The feminine sunflower print and the strappy neckline gave me some serious Courtney vibes so pairing it with studded boots seemed like the perfect option, with the cut outs adding a bit of a 21st century twist on a 90s outfit. As the weather here in England is definitely not warm enough for bare legs (though we did have a short heat wave which allowed my pasty-from-months-of-tights stumps to be bared albeit briefly) opaque black tights were a necessity and worked well at a) keeping me warm and b) dressing the playsuit down. In the words of Hannah Montana, you really do get the best of both worlds.
