A Stripey Situation: My New-found Love For A Nautical Number And Where To Shop For Some Sailor Inspo


Thank you for dropping by! So today I wanted to do a short but sweet post on my current favourite summer outfit- featuring a swishy, blue and white pinstriped jumpsuit! I purchased this off of Depop a while back, brand new and untouched! I fell in love with it and was so happy when it actually blinkin fit! (4’10 is a difficult height to work with you see)… it’s from Zara so the fit was pretty good and the length wasn’t too offensive either (I feel Zara is well known for having rather small sizing which is something that actually works in us diddy one’s favour!)

Moving on to the shoes, I thought I’d be brave and opt for a pair of sandals in a colour I wouldn’t usually go for. So yes, ‘mustard’ was the colour that sprang to mind (not my favourite if I’m honest) but I hoped it’d really pull the outfit together by ‘clashing’ but also ‘co-ordinating.’ Does that make any sense? Okay, no I’m fairly sure it doesn’t but I hope you kinda feel what I’m getting at here. Anyway, I think it worked! These block sandals are from ASOS and the mustard really works with the blue! The wooden heels add a summery touch and create a bit more of a casual daytime look which is perfect for a day out with the girls or even for an evening at the pub.

It’s definitely my new favourite little go-to for when I want to feel summery and ‘swishy’ but not too over the top!
