Outfit Of The Day

It's the first time I've worn this jumpsuit since I took it on holiday last year but I just really fancied wearing it today. It's comfy and it's one of those minimal effort outfits that don't really require much extra styling. I originally bought it from the Miss Selfridge online store as a wedding outfit for my dads best mates wedding. I wasn't sure about it at first but it grew on me and when I got sunburned on holiday I wore it to keep covered for a recovery day. 

I adore the pattern on the soft cotton material which is saying something because, as I've said plenty of times before, I don't really experiment with bold patterns, prints or colours. I am a big fan of the simplicity of monochrome fashion which is probably why it caught my eye when I bought it. The pattern itself is a very mature and classy pattern that excuses it for its lack of colour. It just means that it's easy to style up really, I could pair it up with a brightly coloured cardigan or blazer to break up the black and white theme or I could wear it with pastels or neutral colours. Either way it would look fantastic so it's not something you would have to fuss about with. 

I'm actually wearing this for work but it's not an item with many limitations, I have worn it for a wedding, on holiday and at plenty of weekend events and meet-ups. I would almost say that it's my favourite item of clothing, the only thing that lets it down is how thin it is because it's Spring now and it's freezing!

I paired it up with this lovely fluffy cardigan from ASDA George, it just proves that you don't have to splash out to buy a decent warm and stylish cardigan. It's great to wear over something like this when it's cold around the office. I would say that it's not particularly flattering but the jumpsuit flatters my figure and makes me look rather slim, even if I do say so myself. I'm quite pleased with how they balance each other out in the way that the jumpsuit takes away the effect of the massive fluffy cardigan and the cardigan stops me from looking too figureless. 

I'm wearing my everyday wedge boots which I believe were from a market (I got them for Christmas). Since they were black they didn't end up looking like a statement item which it good because that would have taken away the effect of the jumpsuit. I was going to wear the strappy wedges I got from Select when I needed to go to that wedding but it's WAY too cold for those.

This outfit actually looks quite put together but what you can't seeis my Batman socks that are hidden away in my boots. What?! I didn't have any plain ones this morning, I left the house at half five!

Thanks for checking my OOTD post, it's the first one I've ever done so let me know what you think. Any opinions or suggestions are very much appreciated.
