Oh Topshop, You cruel mistress! Popped into Topshop on my lunch today and ended up buying this whopping £50 playsuit. Spur of the moment, just about to walk out, saw it and ran to the till. I think I'm in love with it. I love the boxy covered up shape and those little lacey sleeves! They get me every time! It also feeding my ever growing need to become Wednesday Adams from The Adams Family! To justify my purchase, As its super expensive even for me! I've decided because of this I'm going on a no-spend for the rest of the week! So if you see me tweeting I got something new, tell me off OK!

Started at New Look today too, It was really good. Very tiring and Im glad to be home now. Its gonna mean a massive change to my usual daily routine! I simply cannot fit gymming and blog posts into the days I'm working. My hours are 10-5:30 on Wednesday and Thursday and 12-6 on Saturdays. Plus the hours driving, Im not going to be getting home till about 6:30 on those weekdays. I'm thinking of scheduling posts for those two days, maybe doing an Ask LLYMLRS one day and then either a want post, or a how they wear one. Mainly because these dont need me to take photos of myself, and especially with the ever failing lighting (I cant imagine how I'm going to take outfit pics in the winter!) They would be easier for me to do it! Anyway, We shall see how it goes!

Apologies for the overall outfit being poorly styled, I couldn't be bothered seeing as I was loving the playsuit too much! This is hopefully going to be the last outfit with my old camera too! I got a delivery note today saying I'd missed the delivery! My Mums going to pick it up from the Post Office tomorrow. Ours is only open 6:30-12:30, How rubbish is that!?

  4. Whoa I LOVE the playsuit on you, this is one of your best outfits yet especially with the rolled fringe - love it! I don't think £50 is actually too bad for this, it's very unique for a high street item xx

  6. I've seen that playsuit lots too but have yet to try it on but its completely stunning! I don't think it really needs much on the styling front except maybe a long necklace because the lace trimming adds a lovely touch to it! Very beautiful and I love your hair style as well x

  8. your hair looks fab here! look the quiff. but ouch, £50 for a playsuit. i can't seem to justify spending that much anymore, i've become such a saver and spendthrift haha! not sure if that's always a good thing though really...

  9. Love it! I've been wanting that playsuit for a while now but can't find it in any of my Topshops.
    Glad you enjoyed New Look :]

  14. You look lovely in the pictures, I love your hair and the colour! Oh gosh, £50 that's so expensive. I love how you make time for you blog everyday. I think my post office is the same timing too, way too early! X

  15. Just fell a little bit in love with the playsuit just from the photographs...

    Please, for the love of God, do not tempt me to look on Topshop's website now. I spent a mini fortune whilst hitting Miss Selfridge's website hard last night.

    Someone take the computer away from me... x

  16. Absolutely stunning! I just wondered tho....how do you get away with wearing shorts all the time? Up here in Scotland it's nowhere near warm enough most days! xxx

  17. I SO nearly bought that very playsuit the other day. Really wish I had now, it's so lovely. You wear it well! X

  18. Oooo I Love This Playsuit..Been Debating Getting It As I Thought It Was A Bit Pricey Too But Looks Gorgeous On You!! x

  19. I think you don't have to apologize for the overall being poorly styled because i think this superchic baby doesn't necessarily need further styling, it looks amazing all by itself :)

  33. Topshop is always a buggar, sometimes I just have to stop myself from going in there otherwise I know I'll be in trouble. Gorgeous playsuit though, I love how simple is it, yet it just works :)

  37. I'm guilty of splurging on a playsuit too (£55 Urban Outfitters, ouch!) but they're like dresses - really wearable. Looks gorgeous on you, would definitely be Wednesday Addams on me cos of my pale skin/dark hair haha!

  40. Ahh I keep doing spelling mistakes! I'll try again.

    I've eyed up this playsuit for ages, it looks gorgeous on you! plus it's an investment really, I've seen them going on ebay for £75 and upwards, so if you ever get bored you can get a profit back! :)
