We are finally into June, and we can officially say it's SUMMERTIME! The only thing that has sucked lately is the weather! But I believe things happen for a reason. I have been desperate to blog this stunning playsuit from Young Bohemians for a while now and I'm so happy with this look! I first came across this brand when I purchased one of their Bomber Jackets a couple of months ago (see the blog post here!). Their selection on ASOS screams festival vibes, ranging from tie dye cami's, lace details and lots of embroidery! With this playsuit I was drawn to the pastel colours, and the pom pom detail really helps to give the playsuit some shape and movement. The lace up front is a massive bonus because you can adjust the top half to your desired fit (busty girls, you know what I'm talking about!)
The only issue I sometimes have with playsuits is the length because I have a long torso but I would say it's true to size and the length was spot on! If you want something colourful and comfy for a festival coming up then I would highly recommend this! How can you say no when it's under £30?!
So I do admit, I have styled it similar to the model on the ASOS website. There were two ways I was thinking of styling the playsuit. One, with a white kimono to match the pom poms OR, toughen up the look with a black jacket and lace up sandals. My aim was to shoot this look last week, but the weather was a let down. But over the weekend I spotted this stunning black eyelet suede jacket on River Island and it was love at first sight. The price was a little off putting but when there was a 25% discount code (which has expired now), I couldn't say no! Luckily the day I scheduled to shoot this outfit the jacket arrived! So going back to believing in things happening for a reason, I believe this jacket and the playsuit were made to be blogged together! It was meant to be!
The ASOS western belt I would also recommend because it is real leather and the buckle has some pretty engraving. I don't think I have ever spent £16 on a belt, but this one was so worth it. It's easy to be worn with day wear looks, or with any of my evening wardrobe pieces like a jump-suit or with high waisted jeans.
This outfit has definitely got me inspired to shoot more festival looks. There are times when I think I go overboard on some of the prints and colours, but I can't hold back when it's something that I love to shoot. Plus festival clothing is more acceptable in the countryside. Can you imagine if I tried to shoot this outfit in Kensington?!
