Outfit of the Day
Warm Summer Christening
The weather has been quite strange this summer where I live. One week I was wearing a jumper in the office, the next I was in a summer dress and sandals. It’s been humid and cloudy, we’ve had brilliant sunshine, we’ve had torrential rain. And I never really know what to wear to Christening’s anyway. I wanted to be dressy and look good, but it also needed to be respectable enough for Church.
I ended up wearing this playsuit with I got from New Look in shades of brown, orange and yellow and is probably one of my favourite purchases this year (and which I wore to my birthday meal while I was on holiday in Rhodes). The Christening provided the perfect excuse to wear it again.
Now it is rather short, and although it was a warm day, there was a bit of a breeze. So both to keep it respectful enough for Chruch, and to counter the breeze, I wore it over tights. These are just a plain black pair from Primark.
And since I wore it over tights, that ruled out any kind of sandals for shoes. So I went with my black, high heeled (for me anyway) boots from the brand Truffle, which I got from Asos. You can see them in my Hen Party Outfit of the Day here.
I had straightened my hair but to keep it out of my way, I swept it back in a loose high ponytail.
On my nails I wore OPI’s Goldeneye from the James Bond collection a couple of years ago, which I thought went with the playsuit very well.
And my lip colour of choice was my Mac lipstick in Spirit, which my sister got me for my birthday this year.
