It's been so warm this week I'm not looking forward to Sumner being officially here (especially if out air conditioning at work remains broken). I'm not a summer girl. After 5 years working inside (what is essentially a windowless box) my skin has is sensitive and I'm a Sun cream fanatic. 

Fortunately I seem to have got into a play suit love affair so at least I can dress appropriately this year.

Play suit: Depop (originally Matalan)
Bag: Vintage
Bracelet: Pip Jolley (similar here and here)
Necklace: Drown Soda (shop currently closed)
Hair comb: Crown and Glory
Shoes: from Korea (similar here, here and here

I'll be honest I'm not keen on Depop- give me eBay any day- but I am uncovering a few gems. This is the first I've found- the most perfect play suit ever! It's really billowy around the legs so it almost looks like a dress, and with its tight waist and halter tie its the perfect pin up style play suit. The billows really help keep me cool too even though I Rusk flashing my knickers waving the legs about. Paired with my Pip Jolley bracelet and wicker bag I love this look. Plus these jelly sandals are surprisingly comfortable  

I won them in a giveaway months ago (sorry I forgot off who) and at first I thought they would be as uncomfortable as the ones I had as a child but the lack if heel really helps. That and they're a size bigger so don't seem to rub. It's strange things you think you'll hate you end up liking- giving things a go works out. 

I need all the cool clothes I can get to chill this weekend- being hot all week (and my PCOS playing up) has made me feel exhausted so relaxing this weekend is the perfect way to relax and recharge.

P.S. I've just realised you can see almost all my tattoos in this outfit -you'll see all if them if I put up my hair :)
