Up in flames

Playsuit: Dorothy Perkins. Shoes: New Look

Funny how last week I didn't own any playsuits for the fact I never wanted my hungry ass on show, or worse, the dreaded camel toe. And then this week, I ended up with two. That don't give me any of the above (maybe even a smaller bum - We can only dream)
I was a little unsure of this playsuit, I loved the colour but was it a little too much, and maybe a bit "woah man, you bought your first one.. slow it down" kinda thing? But being the easily persuaded (thanks Mama Mcfred) I bought it. I couldn't really not. It was £10. Two and a half lunches. When I think of it like that, it does make me a little sad that I sacrificed lunches. Actually that's a lie.. I bought lunch anyway. And maybe a few more bits of clothing.
Basically I did the most stupidest thing in life ever yesterday. The day after it snowed, I thought for some reason I could manage walking to work in my heels. REALLY? Who was I kidding? And more importantly who did I think I was? Because as soon as I stepped out my door, I walked like I was mid process of giving birth to an egg. However, I didn't stop and turn around. Nope I got halfway, until I realised that actually maybe I was a little silly and couldn't do this. It resulted in me wearing my butch boots racing to work like I was in the navy. I think I pulled off the egg pregnancy better...
Why do I never seem to have appropriate footwear whatever I do? I think that calls for a new pair. Again.

  3. woah that playsuit looks perfect! I love that colour too.

    I decided to wear heels out in the slushy snow today which seemed like a good idea, and was going well until I came home with bags of food shopping and 2 coffees and a puppy pulling on her lead... needless to say it took me about 15 minutes to get from the car park to my flat!

    Also I have worn my wellies to work for the last 2 days, I'm sure I look lovely in my smart dresses with purple wellies! I'd rather that than fall over in front of all the schoolkids! xx

  17. i do that too! i always think i can wear heels even when it's raining or even when i know i'm gonna be doing a whole lot of walking, haha! ;)

    but anyway, i think the color of your playsuit is really beautiful and it looks great on you!

    p.s. i like how they're called playsuits over there, it sounds so much better than "rompers". ;)

  20. It's so hard not too wear them isn't it?! You think you totally CAN do it, even though you know you can't!
    Yeah playsuits, it's funny how we find it funny that you guys call them rompers.. Sounds like something a baby would wear! xx

  34. That colour is just stunning! What an amazing shade, it works so well on you! I command you to wear more purpley colours :) you've got the bestest figure I am very very jelous! Also you are clearly from the same wisdom as me 'First day it's snowed? = TIME TO WEAR MY NEW HEELED BOOOTS' woooo. -fall over- . -Die-. The end
