Outfit: daisy dream

Today is my birthday and the day I think I have to officially start saying I'm in my 30s rather than that I've just entered them. I'm quite ok with that though - so far my 30s have been one heck of an improvement on my 20s and I'm looking forward to seeing what else this decade brings! And hey, I'm still early 30s for a while longer yet ;) What makes me laugh whenever I refer to my age on this blog is that inevitably someone always expresses absolute astonishment that I'm as old as that. All I can say is, this youthful face is going to do me well in my later years. Anyway, you're not here for my rambling birthday talk, you're here for my outfit! Which features a playsuit - so you should be thankful I didn't call this post 'Birthday Suit' cos I was gonna just to see if anyone panicked... 

I wanted to share this outfit today, on my birthday (ok, that's the last time I mention it) because it's one of my all-time favourites and this set of photos came out exactly as I pictured them (despite the wind - CiCi: 1, Wind: 267). It's not often a collection comes along and I want most of it, but Voodoo Vixen's spring/summer range definitely ticked all the right boxes for me. I've already shown you my favourite dress, but something else they've aced this season is the cutest one-pieces. I was yet to own a playsuit, actually - and for someone who has been blogging vintage inspired clothes for 5+ years, that's a bit of a travesty and one I've now rectified in the best way possible...

Because this isn't just any old playsuit, I actually believe it might be The Best Playsuit There Ever Was. It is so beautiful and so very flattering and I wish that the weather was good enough here to wear it all the time because I absolutely would. Voodoo Vixen have aced it with this piece - I love the colour, the fabric, the cute daisy trim, the belt detail, the flattering shorts and above all, the ADJUSTABLE STRAPS! Without those, the awesome fit of this playsuit wouldn't have been possible - with them, it looks like it was made for me. I actually kind of think it was, because I'm not sure any other item of clothing I own is as universally flattering as this one is?

And yeah, maybe playsuits aren't practical for bathroom trips, but actually, in all other respects I'd happily run about all day in this one because it's a lot comfier than most of my skirts and dresses and I'm quite happy not wearing my waist cincher with it (I don't have it on here, but in most other photos you see on this blog I do). If you are thinking of getting one, the size guide on Voodoo Vixen's website is pretty accurate - I took my usual small.

And just in case anyone fears I'm writing this on my birthday, don't fear I have a weekend full of activities and NO wedding or blog work whatsoever. After four solid months of all weekends featuring one, the other, or both (usually), it's bliss indeed...

    1. I didn't manage to go the whole weekend without doing wedding or blog stuff, but I packed lots of fun things in so it's not so bad :) xx

  3. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Man, this IS one heck of a playsuit! The colors, the daisies, and HOORAY for adjustable straps!! You look so adorable - it's totally worth the painful bathroom trips when the playsuit is this precious!

    1. For sure, who cares that they have to strip practically naked when nature calls when the outfit is this cute ;)

  4. Now you could have just as easily said that you are celebrating your 21st and no one would bat an eyelid - but the thirties suit you! I definitely think we get better with age - providing we stay out of the sun and eat right. The first one should be very easy to follow in the UK :P I think the 20s are when we spend 10 or so years working out what suits us best so that by the time we turn 30 everything is on point...at least I hope that's the case! Definitely the case for you with this wonderful jumpsuit with daises in your hair - these photos are the epitome of a gorgeous spring day!

    1. Yeah, no trouble avoiding the sun, seeing as it avoids me most of the time! I definitely agree - I was still making a lot of mistakes, fashion or otherwise, in my 20s - so hopefully a lot of that is out of my system by this point!!

    1. The daisy trim makes it - I didn't even realise it was daisies rather than just a basic white flower edge until it turned up, and then I just loved it all the more :D

    1. I have to try really, really hard not to wear these sandals with ALL of my summer outfits - one of the best investments I made for my summer footwear!
